- 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.
