Over the last decade, Retinol-based eye creams have become all the rave. Everyone from celebrities to athletes were endorsing these products across every social platform. And soon, most skin care routines called for some sort of undereye care. But if you have used flashy eye creams before, you are familiar with the lack of results. What you may not be familiar with, though, are the potential harms of synthetic-based skin creams – especially when applied to the undereye.
Retinol eye creams can be problematic due to their synthetic nature. They often cause irritation, dryness, and photosensitivity, increasing the risk of skin damage and potential health concerns. In contrast, opting for a natural alternative like Bakuchiol offers effective results without the negative side effects associated with Retinol.
In recent years, the organic movement has swept the food and produce market. However, personal routines fell by the wayside in this regard – making it hard for non-toxic enthusiasts to find organic products for hair and skin, among others. Recently, we discovered The Age-Defying Eye Cream by Purity Woods, a USDA Organic product that stands out among other eye creams on the market. While Retinol can often lead to irritation and dryness around the delicate eye area, Bakuchiol offers a gentle and effective plant-based alternative with similar benefits and zero side effects (as mentioned above). This makes the product suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin, as it is non-irritating and non-sensitizing.
The driving force behind Purity Woods is Brian Vaszily, a highly regarded veteran in the natural health industry with over 20 years of experience as a researcher, advocate, and entrepreneur. Brian and his wife, Iwona, a licensed cosmetologist, were motivated to create Purity Woods after noticing crow’s feet around their own eyes. Determined to find a skincare product with the right ingredients and verified as clean and organic, they embarked on a mission to develop high-quality organic skincare solutions. Today, Purity Woods stands as one of the fastest-growing organic skincare companies – resulting in skin care products that you can trust for your non-toxic regimen.
One of the notable features of this eye cream is that it does not cause photosensitivity, a potential concern with some retinol-based products that could increase the risk of developing sensitive skin (or even skin cancer). With the Age-Defying Eye Cream, you can enjoy the powerful effects of nature’s retinol alternative without any of the drawbacks. While we did notice a slight improvement in our under eyes over two months of use, the peace of mind comes from the fact that we know we’re using a product that won’t harm our skin in the future. Needless to say, we’re excited to keep using this product to see the results of long-term use.
To rejuvenate the appearance of the delicate skin under the eyes, this eye cream boasts a unique formulation that provides both fast and long-term results. It contains a potent blend of USDA Certified Organic skin botanicals carefully selected to benefit all skin types. Among these botanicals are Maple Leaf Extracts, known for their powerful elastin action that can impart a fountain-of-youth-like effect on the skin. The inclusion of Babchi Oil with Bakuchiol, a highly potent plant-based retinol alternative, ensures optimal performance in reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Additionally, Sumac Berry Extract contributes to collagen-boosting and provides antioxidant-rich benefits, while Turkey Tail Mushroom Extract combats dull-looking skin, age spots, and dark circles.
What sets Purity Woods apart is their commitment to providing plant-based ingredients which are organically grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides. By avoiding harmful substances like fragrance, synthetic preservatives or dyes, phthalates, parabens, and many others, Purity Woods prioritizes both your skin’s health and the well-being of the environment.
The Age-Defying Eye Cream from Purity Woods is a game-changer in the world of skincare. With its innovative use of Bakuchiol from Babchi Oil as a natural retinol alternative, this eye cream delivers remarkable results without any of the potential side effects associated with synthetic ingredients.
