Blue Superfoods To Improve Your Skin Health

We have the summer blues! And not just because we have FOMO for all the cottage pictures you're posting, but because we have some amazing new blue ingredients to share!

We are always on the hunt for innovative botanical ingredients that will help maximize your skin health and we’ve found some amazing blue ones that offer fantastic results.

Learn more about some of our new actives below: 

Malachite 

Can help with: protecting skin from pollution and environmental stressors
Find it in: Fullmoon Serum and Face Food

You have all been loving the malachite in our Fullmoon Serum so we've decided to add it to our Face Food as well! It'll still have all the minerals you love (silver, copper, zinc and magnesium) but malachite gives it the beautiful blue color and also offers antioxidant protection. 

This gemstone has proven to be effective in skincare by providing skin nourishing trace elements such as zinc, copper, selenium, and manganese. Malachite offers several levels of antioxidant protection – it acts directly on the biggest free radical “troublemakers” by inhibiting superoxide and increasing the production of the master antioxidant, glutathione.​ 

Not only are the trace elements found in malachite extract potent antioxidants but the rich copper content of malachite extract has been studied to particularly be effective at increasing the amounts of collagen and elastin​​, this helps to give a youthfulness glow to the skin. 

Blue Majik ®

Can help with: smoothing out and hydrate skin while offering anti-aging benefits
Find it in: Berry Rich and Face Foam

Otherwise known as blue spirulina or blue algae, Blue Majik ® contains vitamin E, selenium and tyrosine which are all important ingredients that help reduce signs of aging. Spirulina encourages faster cell turnover (say bye to dull, tired skin) and also contains chlorophyll which helps your skin retain moisture which is helpful for dry or mature skin types. Add this into your smoothie or into your skincare regimen if you want more of a radiant and youthful complexion.

Blue Tansy 

Can help with: inflammation and anxiety
Find it in: Fullmoon Serum and Intimacy Oil

Tanacetum Annuum, ​better known as blue tansy, is a moroccan chamomile found in the northwestern parts of Morocco. The dried flowers of moroccan chamomile contain many terpenoids and  flavonoids that contribute to its many medicinal properties.​

Noted for its powerful anti-histamine properties, Blue Tansy may be used to counter allergic reactions such as rashes and itches. It's an excellent choice to soothe bruises, wounds and to calm one’s skin, especially when over exposed to over to urban city life (like pollution) and the elements (too much sun/wind). 

Another ingredient worth mentioning is MCT oil, which is found in our Intimacy Oil. This noncomedogenic oil helps make your skin feel silky smooth. Find out more on MCT oil here!
