Éminence Organic Skin Care Wildflower Collection
Inspired by nature and perfected by Éminence

Evoking our Hungarian Roots

Bask in the warm glow of European sunshine with the Wildflower Collection. Drawing inspiration for this collection from the Hungarian countryside using botanical oils derived from wildflowers to soothe the skin as well as the soul.

These two new products offer a modern take on old-world apothecary traditions. A transformative, nourishing cleansing balm melts away stress along with impurities when massaged into the skin, while a nourishing ultralight oil evokes the scent of summer on your skin, hair and nails.

With so many uses for every skin type, it’s hard not to fall in love with the fragrant, therapeutic oils in the Wildflower Collection. Add them to your ritual and they’ll leave you radiant and relaxed.

Perfect Pairings

It’s no secret that we love a good skin care mixology. That’s why we were thrilled to discover that the new Wildflower Collection pairs perfectly with two of your Eminence Organics favourites. Here are two dynamic duos to enhance your skincare routine.

The Perfect Double Cleanse

Together, these cleansers wash away impurities and hydrate skin, leaving it feeling soft, clean and refreshed. Feel like your cleansing ritual isn’t quite cutting it? It may be time to add a double cleanse to your skin care routine – and Eminence Organics Wildflower Cleansing Balm is the perfect first step. Double cleansing takes a “like attracts like” approach to lifting stubborn oil-based products from your pores. To double cleanse, first massage Wildflower Cleansing Balm into dry skin, letting its botanical oils lift and melt away makeup and excess oil. Then, cleanse more deeply with Eminence Organics Stone Crop Gel Wash to sweep away any dirt and dead skin that has accumulated on your skin’s surface.

First, hydrate and calm dry skin with Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Soothing Hydrator. This lightweight moisturizer is infused with aloe, menthol and a Natural Repair Complex to hydrate and repair dry skin, as well as reduce redness due to dryness.

Unlocking the Power of Vitamin C

What we put onto our skin is just as important as what we put into our bodies. Eating Superfoods has tremendous health benefits and now, Eminence Organic Skincare brings you super foods for your skin in the Potent C+E Collection. Building upon our holistic approach to skin care we encourage you to nourish your skin as you would your body.

Since our bodies cannot produce Vitamin C naturally, we need to provide this essential vitamin from external sources. Incorporating Vitamin C from fruits and vegetables into our diets is integral to our health. Vitamin C has many benefits and is used to improve immune function, increase iron absorption, prevent disease and can also play a role in healing wounds. These days we are all aware of the importance of getting Vitamin C from our diets, but we shouldn’t overlook its incredible power as a topical skin care treatment.

Despite its vast potential, harnessing the true power of Vitamin C as a skin care ingredient has been a challenge due to its oxidative nature. Unless protected in some way, Vitamin C rapidly degrades and loses its antioxidant benefit once exposed to oxygen. after extensive efforts, Eminence has formulated a Potent C+E Collection with breakthrough botanical technology that retains the effectiveness of Vitamin C for the best possible results over time.

In the Potent C+E Collection, the activity of the 16%* naturally fortified Vitamin C is preserved by the combination of additional antioxidants. Specifically, supporting ingredients that are high in bioflavonoids such as kale, spinach and broccoli sprouts work with botanical ferulic acid to protect the potency of Vitamin C as well as adding further antioxidant benefits. We have also added a unique form of Vitamin C called sodium sociably phosphate which has stable molecules and gives you all the benefits of Vitamin C in its most potent form for more effective absorption into the skin.

The difference between sensitive skin and sensitised skin

Up to 90% of the population perceives their skin as sensitive.

But do you really have sensitive skin? This inquiry is not posed to make you question your skin’s redness, irritation and discomfort. It is actually posed to point out that there is sensitive skin, and then there is sensitised skin, which is the growing phenomenon of skin experiencing sensitivity because of environmental assaults, cosmetics, poor diet and the natural ageing process.

Sensitive Skin Versus Sensitised Skin

A true sensitive skin condition is caused by a genetic predisposition. This genetic predisposition is found in those who have very fair skin and are usually of Northern European ancestry. This could be caused by the lower amount of pigment and a thinner epidermal skin layer (the epidermal layer is the top layer of skin we can see). Someone with truly sensitive skin is highly prone to blushing and may experience bad hay fever, allergies or asthma.

Sensitised skin can affect any person of any racial background or skin colour. (Case in point: Many people in Asia are experiencing skin sensitisation due to a large amount of pollution in some parts of this region.) Symptoms for sensitive and sensitised skin do have a lot in common (itching, burning, redness, flushing and stinging), but in many cases, sensitised skin can’t be seen by the naked eye, as it resides much deeper. And, our microclimate, or the climate we are exposed to in our home, cars, offices and during air travel, changes daily, meaning our level of sensitisation can vary.

What causes sensitised skin?

A number of factors contribute to the process of skin sensitisation. These causes are among the most common, and fortunately, the most treatable and preventable when lifestyle changes are adapted and when under the care of a skin care professional.

Environmental Assaults

The fastest rising factor contributing to the sensitised skin is environmental assault, as the epidermis is constantly exposed to assault from the sun, extreme weather and pollution.

1. The Sun

Exposure to the sun causes water to evaporate from the skin, making it more prone to sensitivity.

There is still not enough understanding that cumulative exposure to the sun can also cause extensive damage. Fifteen minute walks outside and occasional lunches outdoors can contribute to skin sensitisation, and of course, skin cancer. And even if you don’t see pink or red skin after being in the sun, that doesn’t mean that the damage hasn’t been done. Summer activities, such as swimming, can also cause skin irritation as chlorine in pools and salt in ocean water is abrasive and drying.

2. Pollution

On average, our skin is exposed to an estimated 6 million chemicals, and roughly 2,800 of these have sensitising properties. Extensive exposure to Nitrogen oxides (from road traffic, industrial heating units, etc.) and volatile organic compounds (from hydrocarbons and waste) contributes to the steady rise in sensitised skin cases.

3. Cold Weather and Low Humidity

Cold winds and low temperatures can dry out skin, depriving it of balanced levels of sebum (oil) that keeps skin lubricated. Without these oils, skin becomes dry and is more prone to sensitivity because of the lack of protective oils. This goes for forced air heating as well. Warm, dry air acts like a giant sponge, soaking up moisture from everything it touches.

4. Ageing

Scientists agree that there is a sharp decline in the Stratum corneum lipids as we age (lipids are fats that are essential for the structure and function of living cells). Meaning by the time we reach age 40, our skin will almost certainly be dry and/or dehydrated. Without these protective lipids, skin is left exposed and defenceless against external aggressors, and the chances for reactions to the environment increase.

5. Ingredients

Certain ingredients in cosmetics can cause irritation and exacerbate skin sensitivity. More importantly, these ingredients can be found in skin care products that claim to help treat sensitised skin! Some ingredients that can sensitise skin include fragrances, D and C colours, preservatives, and Lanolin.

Éminence has the most unique and effective natural skin care products on the market. The range contains no parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals, fillers, GMO ingredients, animal by-products, artificial colours or fragrances, hydrogenated oils, mineral oils and is not tested on animals!

6. Lifestyle

Nutritionists say that those surviving on a litany of diet sodas and fat-free food items are missing out on the vial, skin-friendly essential fatty acids (EFA) and fat-soluble vitamins. (And don’t forget that fat-free foods often substitute sugar with artificial sweeteners that can cause skin sensitivity.)

An EFA deficiency can result in skin problems such as chronic itching, dryness, scaling and thinning and can lead to an imbalance in prostaglandins (prostaglandins are chemical messengers that do many things, such as control inflammation). The lack of “good” fats in our diets could also be contributing to the increase in the percentage of the population that suffers from psoriasis, eczema and dandruff.

Smoking can also have a drying effect on skin, as smoking inhibits the body’s ability to provide oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Smoking drains the skin of vitamins A and C and restricts blood vessels (which equates to less blood flow) – meaning smoking is somewhat like suffocating your skin from the inside. And, an excessive intake of alcoholic beverages and certain medications (such as nasal decongestants) can also contribute to dry skin.

7. Over-cleansing

The loss of existing sebum (oil) is commonly caused by excessive bathing or showering, scrubbing, or the use of harsh soaps that dissolve the protective layer of sebum. In addition, shaving without a protective medium or using dull razors can also weaken the skin’s barrier function, leaving it exposed to environmental assaults.

When skin is healthy, a sensitised skin condition is minimised. Professional skin treatments coupled with the right lifestyle choices are great ways to begin treating sensitised skin. An effective sensitised skin treatment will include gentle cleansing, soothing and anti-inflammatory-based products, and hydration. The “less is more” rule should be followed during any professional sensitised skin treatment and at-home regimen. Exfoliation can be performed on the sensitised skin but should be done only under the recommendation of a professional.
