    Reveal smoother +radiant skin instantly with Amazonian SkinFood

    Beauty powered by the ancient wisdom and deep nourishment of the Amazon Rainforest, Amazonian SkinFood is a safe effective skincare formulate without harmful ingredients. Revealing the clearer, smoother skin instantly with Amazonian SkinFood Sacha Inchi Face Cream + Superfruit Oil!

    Sacha Inchi Firming Peptide Face Cream

    Loaded with powerful antioxidants and vitamins, this multifaceted vegan and fragrance-free moisturizer helps the skin retain long-lasting moisture, reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and decreases roughness for smoother younger looking skin. The end result is an immediate improvement in skin’s tone, texture, and firmness.

    Amazonian SkinFood unique blend of Amazonia’s most nutrient-dense superfoods with Sacha Inchi – an ancient Inca seed renowned for its wellness, Organic Cacay oil, Organic Green Coffee Oil, Organic Açaí Berry, and Organic Ucuuba is a dream come true for your skin.

    This non greasy and fast absorbing, nutrient-dense moisturizer with plant-based natural peptides help stimulate cell regeneration and boost overall skin health.

    Superfruit Facial Oil: Plant-Based Retinol + Natural Vitamin-C

    Ultimate natural skincare routine: with clean skin, AM & PM, apply Sacha Inchi Face Cream followed by Superfruit Oil. Don’t forget to add your favorite SunScreen too. Amazonian SkinFood’s Superfruit Facial Oil has been awarded 2nd place in Facial Oils in Cert Clean’s 2022 Clean Beauty Awards.

    This facial oil is a multi-functional Superfruit powered pure oil blend with Plant-Based Retinol Alternative + Natural Vitamin-C. It is great for all skin types, including the most sensitive. Non-comedogenic & won’t clog pores.

    The correct way to use your face oil is to use the moisturizer first then pat on your oil. It’ll let the water melt into your skin and not evaporate. The other reason why oil goes last is that it will eventually sink into your skin, reinforcing your moisture barrier. Dry skin is when you don’t have enough oil on your face; dehydrated skin is when you don’t have enough water in your skin despite chugging water during waking hours. Oils thrive on the top layers of your skin; water thrives inside your skin — where it’s trapped by those oils. That’s what your moisture barrier is: an oil-infused barrier to reduce trans-epidermal water loss (read evaporation of precious skin juices).

    Amazonian SkinFood™ foundation is sustainability, and from the formulations stage, products are developed to be functional, minimal, with more concentrated actives, and can perform in smart recyclable packaging. Plus, every time you purchase skincare from Amazonian SkinFood, 10% of profits go to regenerate the forest and keep the ancestral knowledge of the Huni Kuin Indigenous People alive.

    Amazonian Skinfood – eco-friendly new skincare brand powered by the wisdom and nourishment of the Amazon Rainforest

    It’s time to embrace your natural skin. In times of so many mandatory aesthetics, invasive procedures, harsh treatments, and toxicity in the Beauty Industry, a new skincare brand enthusiastically embraces skinimalism and slow beauty and encourages you to do the same. This doesn’t mean cutting corners or slacking in effort, but rather cutting out unneeded steps, products, spending, and consumption. By focusing on your most important skin issues (dry skin, acne, hyperpigmentation, crow’s feet, worry lines, etc), you can most effectively confront and treat them.
    Amazonian SkinFood enters the market as a visionary clean skincare brand that uses powerful, exotic ingredients from the Amazon Rainforest to restore the skin’s natural balance and glow. Say no to overly complex routines, unnecessary fillers, waste, and fluff, and yes to cleaner, simpler, and effective formulas powered by the most nutrient-rich and skin-supportive plants on the planet.

    Perfecting the product formulation has been an exercise in patience, but well worth it. Amazonian SkinFood had a long list of requirements to be accomplished before bringing their products to market: it had to be safe enough to be used by a pregnant woman, environmentally friendly, vegan, cruelty-free, use no artificial fragrances, and had to use safe food grade preservatives. And most importantly, the product had to be highly effective.

    “We set out to create a sustainable and natural skincare line to help declutter your routine and achieve optimal skin health with fewer steps. We want to show you how to achieve your best skin using our multifunctional, gentle, and effective formulas that embrace the skin’s natural texture and complexion.” says company co-founder Rose Correa. After almost two years of research and development, Amazonian SkinFood ™ launches with two multifunctional products made for all skin types, including the most sensitive.
    Natural Peptides + Antioxidants (Clearer, Smoother Skin), a daily face cream made with Sacha Inchi, an ancient Incan seed renowned for its health benefits, known to improve the appearance of skin tone, texture, and firmness.
    Plant-Based Retinol + natural Vitamin C for Sensitive Skin (Protect, Hydrate, Glow), a pure oil blend powered by Amazonian Superfruits, including Cacay, rich in natural Vitamin A (Retinol), making it a great Plant-Based retinol alternative for maintaining healthy skin.
    At Amazonian SkinFood, clean beauty means products are 100% safe (no-carcinogens or endocrine-disrupting chemicals), non-toxic for people and the environment. The company uses sustainable packaging and prioritizes ethically sourced vegan ingredients that benefit communities. They opt for natural formulas that use cold-pressed organic oils and butters from nutrient-rich plant extracts. They are free from synthetic ingredients, GMOs, parabens, phthalates, BHT & BHA Preservatives, artificial colors, or synthetic fragrances.
    Their products are not only great for the skin but great for the world. Amazonian Skinfood sources raw ingredients from the Amazon Rainforest with accredited traders based on sustainability credentials, fair trade practices, and socio-environmental activities. These aim to reverse climate change and help combat traditional peoples’ poverty and inequality. Amazonian SkinFood is transparent in its labeling and ingredients and implements eco-conscious practices in every supply chain step, from ingredient sourcing to recyclable packaging.
     
    “We strongly believe that creating a sustainable rainforest economy based on renewable resources will protect the biodiversity of the forest, reduce poverty and promote the generation of wealth for the people living there,” says company co-founder Shane Lindner.
    Married couple and company co-founders Rose Correa (from Brazil) and Shane Lindner (from Connecticut) met in San Francisco in 2019 while volunteering on a social project. Roses’ sensitivities to harmful and ineffective skincare and her ancestral connection to the Amazon Rainforest are the foundation for what would become Amazonian SkinFood.
