Throughout history, humans have learned how to use nature’s incredible bounty for food, drinks, medicines, and health and beauty treatments—like tea, aloe, lavender, and olive oil. Then “modern technology” took over for a while, with the bigger companies offering us products made with chemical and processed ingredients. Luckily, more and more companies these days are going back to nature and using age-old remedies and ingredients that have soothing and healing power, the way it was intended. Eminence Organics, the maker of the Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer in the summer Yuzen box, is one of those companies. Their products include some ingredients we’re used to by now, like chamomile, grapefruit, and echinacea, plus a few others aren’t as common (yet) and might not sound familiar. Check out the full line of Eminence Organics products at www.eminenceorganics.com.
Stone crop is a flowering succulent plant found throughout the northern hemisphere. Like all succulents, stone crop leaves are thick because they store water. Stone crop is highly moisturizing and has a light, fresh scent; it also helps balance uneven pigmentation.
Monoi (pronounced mah-noy) is a fragrant oil made by soaking the petals of Tahitian gardenias in coconut oil. It has long been used in French Polynesia as a skin and hair treatment because of its hydrating and softening powers.
Naseberry, also called chikoo or sapota depending on where you are in the world, is the fruit of the sapodilla tree, an evergreen found throughout the Americas. The taste has been described as a combination of apple, pear, and cinnamon. Naseberry contains antioxidants and vitamins with anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce skin irritations and the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Red currant, a member of the gooseberry family, is native to western Europe. These tiny little powerhouses are high in vitamin C, which helps to combat the signs of aging.
Persimmon is a fruit grown in warm, dry climates; in Latin, the name means “food of the gods.” Used in beauty preparations, persimmon juice is a vitamin-rich antioxidant that is also very hydrating.
