Superfood Smoothie Mask and Seaweed from Nature Spirit Herbs
Here are some of the Superfood Smoothie Mask’s bioactive-rich ingredients (including one climate hero and one farming hero) — plus some surprising facts about the familiar ones — and how they’ll help take your complexion to the next level of luminosity.

Wakame & Kombu – These seaweeds are a protein and vitamin-rich superfood eaten by humans all over the world. They are also loaded with skin-loving minerals, such as calcium, iron, folic acid, and Vitamin K.

In its wild and untamed form, seaweed creates a habitat where fish, invertebrates, birds, and marine mammals find food and protection from predators. As for its eco-superstar credentials, scientists have been assessing the carbon sequestration potential of seaweed for the last couple decades. One possible and simple solution to helping reverse climate change is to ramp up seaweed aquaculture to capture carbon dioxide (CO2). This is because seaweed (which also buffers against ocean acidification, dampens wave action, reduces coastal erosion, and cleans up waterways by absorbing excess nutrients from wastewater), and uses photosynthesis to turn carbon dioxide (CO2) into seaweed biomass. This process is known as carbon sequestration. Fast-growing seaweed is highly regenerative, and when it regenerates, it consumes CO2 at a fast rate. Once that CO2 is locked up in seaweed biomass, it can be harvested for use, or it can sink to the seafloor and be naturally stored underground, where it originated.

For our seaweed, we partner with, James, of Nature Spirit Herbs. They harvest every piece of the three types of seaweed (Gigartina, Kombu, and Wakame) by hand, which is included in our bestselling Superfood Smoothie Mask. Their process is laborious and time-consuming; however, the practices of harvesting by hand ensure a commitment to meticulously selecting the right amount of seaweed – no more than 25% of any one species is harvested from each location per year. This ensures preservation of a delicate ecosystem that supports the regeneration of the seaweed within four months.

Matcha Tea – Rich in antioxidants, Matcha helps to replenish and reduce visible signs of aging. Our Matcha comes from Wazuka, Japan, a historic tea-making town producing the world's most premium, hand-milled Matcha from family-run farms dedicated to this craft for over 800 years.

French White & Green Clay – Helps purify and detoxify, unclog pores, and gently exfoliate.

Acai – Antioxidant and omega-rich to help revive dull, lackluster skin.

Goji Berry – Helps defend against environmental damage and improve tone.

Daily Exfoliator and Cranberries from James Lake Farms
And here are a few of the superstar ingredients in our Daily AHA Gentle Exfoliator (don't forget to check out our Meet the Bioactives Library for the details on all our new ingredients):

Plant-Based AHAs – Polish away expired skin to reveal smoother, more refined skin.

Maple Leaf Extract - Powerful anti-aging active which helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Lactobacillus - Probiotic that soothes and balances skin.

Cranberry - Cranberries are rich in antioxidants, and combined with Vitamins A & C. Research indicates they also offer health-promoting effects when consumed in supplements or juices. The bioactive compounds known as anthocyanins present in cranberries are known for their health benefits, and these anthocyanins are also what give cranberries their vibrant red color.

Our cranberries come from one of our farming heroes, James Lake Farms in Wisconsin. The farm dates back to 1940, and for the last sixteen years, farmers John and Nora Stauner have dedicated their lives to growing cranberries organically – choosing to make a difference in the community by creating a product that offers the purest quality to consumers and supports healthy preservation of the land.

Now you can purchase this power duo together at a great value in our Superfood Skin Smoothies Set. Try incorporating them into your routine, and we know you'll see a big difference.
