Have you heard of synergistic skincare? If you haven’t, it’s definitely a term you should get nice and familiar with as it could be the key to the new you and to unlocking phenomenal skin.
So what is synergistic skincare? Here’s what you need to know...
It’s not just a fancy name or one of those passing beauty trends, but a discovery with the potential to take your natural skincare routine to the next level. You know that saying “those just go so perfectly together” when referring to foods and spices or styles and clothing (and maybe sometimes couples) -- that’s called synergy.
Think of synergy for your skin like a best friend - they always help you out and uplift you to make you even better. That’s synergistic skincare in a nutshell.
When two or more things simply work together well, and compliment or increase the other properties of the parts and ingredients involved, they are synergistic. This can apply to tastes, smells, colors, textures, people, and more.
For example, have you ever wondered why basil and tomatoes go together? Well, it’s not because they just taste great. It’s because the critters that eat tomatoes hate basil, so basil is planted nearby to help protect the tomatoes and help them grow healthier. It just made sense to combine these Italian staples together. Plus...pizza. 😋
In the case of your skin, we are talking about synergistic natural ingredients that work phenomenally to boost the health of your skin and combine to create skin-nourishing blends that single ingredients on their own just can’t achieve.
Enter mānuka oil, one of the world’s most powerful synergistic essential oils
If that’s not an intro to dazzle, we don’t know what is. But mānuka oil isn’t just talk, it walks the walk and the science behind mānuka oil proves it is one of the most effective antibacterial synergistic oils found in nature.
Different than other essential oils
Mānuka oil, especially from the East Cape of New Zealand, has amazing skincare benefits like many other natural essential oils. But unlike most other essential oils, and when compared to similar myrtles like Australian tea tree, East Cape manukā oil is leaps and bounds more potent because it is loaded with triketones that give it antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory superpowers.
Combine these benefits with other ingredients that are helpful in addressing more specific skin challenges, be it severe acne or anti-aging or damaged skin -- mānuka oil is a clear choice for combining with the best of nature.
Why Synergistic Skincare is Sensational for Pro-Aging
Though mānuka oil is powerful and versatile, it can’t do it all. But that’s where the synergistic benefits of it come into play. Take anti-aging for example -- we can’t stop time but many skincare products want to make you think that. They may boost collagen, which is important for keeping skin youthful, but they don’t protect against skin-damaging bacterias and other conditions. So you end up with empty bottles filled with empty promises.
Pro-aging on the other hand is all about aging gracefully and healthy, so you and your skin can look youthful longer. But at the same time it works to help keep skin fortified and protected against dermal-damaging elements and bad bacterias.
Take rosehip oil as a prime example, which happens to be a main ingredient in our Restorative Trio lineup. It so happens that rosehip is also one of the best ingredients gifted by mother nature to slow the effects of time on our skin and help repair it.
The Combined Collagen-Boosting Benefits of Rosehip and Mānuka
Rosehip oil is rich in vitamin A and boasts big benefits for your skin to help stimulate circulation, boost collagen production to retain that youthful skin elasticity, and inhibits enzymes that break down collagen. Along with this, rosehip has an army of antioxidants to fight off free radicals that can cause chaos for our skin.
While rosehip works to keep skin looking young and remaining strong, mānuka oil fights bad skin bacteria that damage skin and wreak havoc on the healing process. This allows your skin to focus on protecting you, and helps the rosehip work even better to keep you looking younger, longer.
It gets better. Mānuka oil not only works as the perfect ally to the fatty acids boasting rosehip oil, but because mānuka oil has been found to increase the potential activity and properties of other essential oils that it gets combined with, the plant-powered properties of rosehip oil are intensified when infused with mānuka oil.
