I am always surprised at how many of my friends that eat natural, organic food still rely on chemical cosmetics and beauty products. You don’t need to sacrifice performance for natural skin care. In fact, natural products will protect your skin, as well as not damage your health with dangerous toxins.
Naturopathica makes quality, natural products you can trust not only for their safe ingredients but their effectiveness. I have reviewed several Naturopathica skin care products before, and I even participated in their 30-day skin transformation challenge. I have never been disappointed by the brand!

We were sent two full size samples of Naturopathica products that are sure to become part of your regular beauty regime once you try them:
SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE (SOD): a powerful plant derived enzymatic antioxidant known for its ability to neutralize the highly reactive superoxide radical and slow down the signs of aging
VITAMINS A, C & E: this blend of potent antioxidants helps to neutralize free radicals and protect skin from environmental assault
LIPOSOME DELIVERY SYSTEM: allows for deep penetration into the skin to get visible results
KUDZU EXTRACT: a plant renowned for its beauty and versatility, it has been used in traditional Asian medicine for centuries. Symbiosomes (part of the root system) are rich in proteins and Isoflavones. This extract guards against the breakdown of collagen and elastin and helps to maintain skin youthfulness
SWEET CHERRY PUREE: helps to prevent skin discoloration and refine mature skin
LACTIC ACID: known benefits of this AHA include exfoliation, moisturization, reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin firming and brightening
WINE EXTRACT: a concentrated preparation of polyphenols and other bioactive compounds derived from the red Cabernet-Sauvignon variety of grapes grown in France. Polyphenols are a class of powerful antioxidant compounds that fight free radicals to help detoxify, purify, soothe and brighten skin
SALICYLIC ACID: a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) which has keratolytic, anti-acne and fungicidal properties. Salicylic acid peels are particularly useful for patients with oily skin and open comedones
We were also sent a few single use samples, which are harder to test out but handy for traveling. [amazon_link id=”B004NEL9MC” target=”_blank” ] Naturopathica Plant Stem Cell Serum[/amazon_link],[amazon_link id=”B004NEM2DW” target=”_blank” ]Naturopathica Oat Facial Polish[/amazon_link], and [amazon_link id=”B003V66BQC” target=”_blank” ]Naturopathica Lavender Protective Moisturizer SPF 17[/amazon_link] live up to the high standards I expect from Naturopathica. The Oat Polish has been one of my favorite cleansers ever since I first tried it, and I would love a larger bottle of the Lavender Moisturizer. It would help protect my face from the sun daily when I forget to put on sunscreen, which shamefully happens pretty often. We need SPF protection on our face during all seasons, not just summer.
Both the Enzyme Peel and the Vitamin C Complex are high quality, natural beauty products. I adore them!
