INTO THE BRAND: E NATURE
Are you trying to live cleaner, be healthier, or be greener? Maybe you want to reduce your carbon footprint, choosing companies that are responsible with natural resources. Maybe you just want to live simpler, embracing a more minimalistic lifestyle.
It’s hard to keep motivated, especially if you aren’t sure where to start. One easy step is to use skincare by brands that prioritize natural ingredients, cut the frills, and are eco-friendly. E Nature (short for “Everyone’s Nature”) is a relatively young, minimalist brand, that’s foundation is based on the use of natural ingredients and cutting-edge technology. Their guiding principle is that their products are for everyone: all skin types and genders.
They’re also admirably committed to protecting the environment. All their products are animal testing and cruelty-free, and almost all are vegan (their Cicaherb Multi-Balm contains beeswax). Products are packaged in functional, eco-friendly containers, and printed with soy-based ink.
Like many k-beauty brands, E Nature uses natural ingredients that are shown to have beneficial properties. Their most popular line is their birch line, which is birch sap-based (as opposed to water-based), drawing on the hydrating powers of the sap to imitate the skin’s natural moisture, and restoring the skin barrier. Birch sap is also easily absorbed (due to its small molecular size) and contains a skin-boosting cocktail of vitamin B3, vitamin C, amino acids, and antioxidants.
If you’re reluctant to try new products because of sensitivities and fear of irritation, you’ll be pleased to know that E Nature conducts thorough skin safety testing on all their products, uses no synthetics or parabens, and no artificial fragrances.
Because even the best ingredients are of no use if they can’t be harnessed by your skin, E Nature has developed a smart absorption system to maximize the effectiveness of the ingredients, as well as a smart delivery system that slowly releases active ingredients over time.
