Orchid: Why You'll Love this Skincare Ingredient

Orchid: Why You'll Love this Skincare Ingredient

We’re excited to introduce this beautiful botanical to your skincare routine as one of the key hero ingredients in our Orquídea + Vitamin C Hydrating Glow Oil


Orchids are the national flower of Colombia, and seem to grow everywhere you look. Colombia also happens to have the largest variety of orchids of any country in the world! 


Inspired by the local presence of these blossoms, we began to dig into the science behind the beautiful flower, and discovered a unique clinical active derived from isolated orchid cells that has been shown to help maintain healthy, plump, firm, and protected skin. This specific active ingredient has been developed by leading global scientists, and engineered to have greater results than a more generic extract. 


What does Orchid extract do for your skin? 


Orchids are one of the longest living flowering plants, which may be a clue to the fact that they have been proven to have powerful rejuvenating benefits (some orchids can even live to 100 years!).


The orchid cells used in our Hydrating Glow Oil act on two levels; by helping to firm, strengthen, and restore the skin, and by preventing the cell oxidation that reduces youthful vitality.


In clinical studies, this potent orchid extract has been shown to increase the production of collagen and protein by an average of 25.6% with daily use - keeping the skin plump, bouncy, and firm. At the same time, its high levels of antioxidants have been shown to inhibit the skin's production of oxidizing free radicals, and protect against environmental pollution. 


Orchid in the Hydrating Glow Oil 


Orchid extract plays a key role in The Hydrating Glow Oil, amplifying its antioxidant and rejuvenating properties. We can't wait for you to experience what these symbols of beauty and true wonders of nature can do in your skincare.
