Why I LOVE using Eminence Organics April 20 2013, 0 Comments

I've been using Eminence Organics for 5 years now and really enjoy working with ingredients from nature rather than a cocktail of chemicals. Eminence started from the humble garden of a Hungarian woman, but now reaches into the skincare regimen of celebrities including Katherine Heigl, Jessica Biel and Madonna. Eminence's brand manager talks about the history and philosophy...

How did Eminence come about? 

Eminence started in 1958 when the current owners grandmother couldn’t import skincare products (because Hungary was a communist country) and had to make skin care with what she could grow in the garden, this included fruits, vegetables and herbs. When they could finally import products when Hungary became a republic they realised they were making something unique and decided to keep producing under the Eminence brand. Her grandsons moved the company to Canada in 2000 to grow the company into the world wide brand it is today.

What is the brand philosophy of Eminence?

Eminence’s brand philosophy is to use only the healthiest ingredients, without any harmful chemicals or additives, chosen to give premium results to all skin types. We believe in a holistic approach to skin care and health and feel passionate about sharing our quality products with the world.

What’s unique about Eminence in comparison to other organic or natural skin care brand in the market?

Eminence is unique to other organic skin care brands on the market because we have a ‘whole food’ philosophy. Instead of using essential oils we cold press whole fruits and vegetables so the vitamins and minerals stay fresh and alive in the jar, giving you maximum anti-oxidant protection. We use the whole fruit, skin, pulp and seed as sometimes it’s the ‘waste’ that has the highest anti-oxidant and bioflavonoid value.

Eminence products are not mass produced and are in fact hand-made. How does the product stay fresh and usable for long and what is the standard shelf life of your products? 

There are several factors that keep our products fresh. First of all, making smaller batches of product and distributing those products straightaway instead of warehousing them for a period of time, gets the product to spas fresh, about only one month old. Secondly, Eminence does not use water as a filler in our product, everything is a concentrate. If you don’t add water as a filler, then you need fewer preservatives in the product. We use natural preservatives including witch hazel, rosemary and soyamine (a soy protein that prevents rancidity). In addition to these natural preservative the product is so high in anti-oxidant value that it also serves as a self preservative function.

What’s in store for Eminence? Any up and coming product launches in the pipeline?

We have something very special in store; this our most anti aging product to date. Based on our natural Retinol Alternative Complex and the stem cells from the swiss garden apple this collection promises to live up to its Age Corrective name.

Age-defying Light Therapy Facials October 30 2012, 0 Comments

The benefits of light therapy are widely recognised in modern medicine as they deliver safe, effective, comfortable skin rejuvenation and healing. The system uses LED optimised light which is absorbed through cell receptors to increase cell energy and collagen production. The treatment is very comfortable and a favourite for gentle rejuvenation.

The Science

Cells in the human body use light and convert it into ATP (adenosine triphosphate) this is the energy/fuel that powers a cell. Plant cells have a similar process - photosynthesis produces 'chlorophyll', their fuel for life. When Light Therapy is used on the skin, it triggers the production of ATP, which increase's fibroblast activity - stimulating collagen production and promotes healing. The effects are smoothing of wrinkles, acne/scar healing, softened pigmentation (sun damage) and shrinking pore size.

The Treatment 

Skin is cleansed, prepped and assessed. The light canopy is placed over the face for 20 minutes emitting a warm bright glow - followed with organic serums and treatment after-care. For an instant visible boost, try a Glow & Go Facial where I apply Hyarulonic Acid Serum to feed your skin before Light Therapy.
