Our relationship with plants and the natural world is as ancient as our earliest civilization. The power of Plants has been harnessed and used for centuries but with the rise of modern science many began to doubt natural remedies. More recently though with advances in science and genetics some of the remarkable properties in the natural world have been seen with fresh eyes by the pharmaceutical industries.
Origins have long been associated with using high quality natural ingredients and their award winning Origins Plantscription Collection Anti-aging collection builds on this legacy. One of its main ingredients is Anogeissus, a tree bark extract from Africa, which has remarkable age defying properties.
The tree is a native of Ghana and is seen as sacred in West African culture. Local tribes use Siga (as it is known, which translated means ‘the soul’) as a natural wound healer. Origins carried out 5 years of intensive research with pant scientists from the University of Strasbourg during which the unique properties were identified and mapped out. The extract has powerful abilities to protect collagen and boost the skin’s own natural protection. This results in a firmer and more resilient youthful looking complexion.
Origin’s New Plantscription Anti-aging concealer used the power of Anogeissus to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles both on application but also over time. It gives the skin a smoother, flawless and healthy look. Also new to the range is the Plantscription SPF 15 Anti-Aging foundation, which is a high performance foundation that helps give you a younger looking complexion. It again uses the special properties of Anogeissus to soften lines and gives a natural radiant finish to the skin. It comes in twelve shades to suit all skin types. Origins have also added the Plantscription Anti-aging cleanser, an Anti-aging treatment lotion and the Plantscription Anti-aging eye cream to the collection. The collection uses the powerful benefits of many essential oils as well as the Anogeissus. The products all apply in an even and gentle manner to the skin as you’d expect from Origins and the products we tried, Anti-aging concealer and the Plantscription SPF 15 Anti-Aging foundation really made our skin feel and look more vibrant and smooth.
