When it comes to effective skincare solutions well-tolerated by most skin types, few ingredients have a better track record than botanicals. Derived from herbs, leaves, roots, fruits, seeds and flowers, powerful botanical skincare ingredients have been used for hundreds of years in climates all over the world to hydrate, soothe, brighten and protect skin. In addition to their proven efficacy, botanical skincare ingredients are also typically sustainable, earth-friendly options, as well as non-toxic picks for anyone aiming to take her beauty regimen greener. “While things found in nature have been around since we’ve been tracking time, the majority of synthetic ingredients date back no further than 60 years so the long-term effects of using these compounds in skincare are somewhat uncertain,” says Christina Dukes, PharmD, BOPC, a pharmacy specialist. For all of these reasons, Pour Moi elected to make botanical ingredients a significant player in their skincare products. “It was important to us that Pour Moi’s products contain botanical ingredients because history has shown us that they really do work and they’re typically well-tolerated by skin,” says Ulli Haslacher, Pour Moi founder. “It also makes sense for us to support ingredients that are sustainable and environmentally friends since our skincare brand was founded on the concept of the profound impact of our climate on our complexions.” So which botanical skincare ingredients will you find in Pour Moi’s products? These are a few of the collection’s most potent natural additives, a brief explanation of what they can do for your face—and the products in which you’ll find them.
