A new eco-chic skincare range, developed and founded by green chemist Dr Barbara Olioso, has just been launched in the UK at the Natural Products Europe Show. Forest Secrets combine sustainable and effective ingredients with green packaging and the secret language of colour.

The vision and the desire to develop a unique skincare range was born out of the need to provide truly high performance natural anti-ageing products, without damaging the planet.

Organic standards work very well for farming and food but cosmetics are more complex, requiring many ingredients and a more complicated production process. In addition the present beauty standards are very restrictive, only allowing botanical extracts that are obtained from a glycerine or ethanol extraction process which only produces weak concentrations of active ingredients. These two challenges mean that it is very difficult to have high concentrations of natural active ingredients and therefore effective anti-ageing properties in organic certified products.

Forest Secrets Skincare is the only totally natural two step system to tailor made beauty. It is preservative free, free from any synthetic chemicals, contains organic oils and several concentrated extracts (or actives), with proven scientific data to address many skin concerns at the same time.

The iRejuvinate Step 1 and iRejuvinate Step 2 together are an effective replacement for many cosmetic products within our beauty ritual including the night and day moisturiser for the face and the eye contour, anti-dark circles serum, lifting and anti-ageing treatment, anti-stress treatment. Using multi-active products saves money, time and earth resources. Applying products that contain several botanical concentrates means women do not have to buy and apply 4 or 5 different products for their beauty regime. In addition there is no extra environmental cost in producing additional products (for example air miles, packaging, energy and less ingredients used). The power of these concentrated products is reflected in the intensity of their colours which derive from high tech ayurvedic plant extracts.

Forest Secrets also embraces the secret language of colour. Research has shown again and again that humans are affected by the colours around them, so its important that a cosmetic has the right colours for the role that it plays in our lives. Forest Secrets are naturally green and orange. iRejuvenate Step 1 Lifting Pro-Youth Face Oil is orange inspiring an energetic, positive sense of health, harvests and plenty.
iRejuvenate Step 2 Regenerating Skin Serum is green invoking the feeling of Spring, regeneration and growth.
