Brand Spotlight: Kindred Skincare Co
Hello, Friends! I am so happy to share this month’s Brand Spotlight: Kindred Skincare! Every product is handmade using only 100% certified-organic bases and essential oils. These oils are combined to create a variety of cleansing, moisturizing, and calming blends to benefit any type of skin.
Researching Kindred, we knew this brand would be the perfect addition to the store. One key feature that makes Kindred the perfect addition to Morada Pure is their transparency with ingredients. As soon as you pick up one of her oil cleanses, each organic ingredient is conveniently labeled in the front of the bottle, which shows how transparent Kindred is on offering clean and healthy products.
Frances, the founder of Kindred, was inspired by nature and fueled with a passion to find the best way to truly cleanse, nourish, and clean our skin. Kindred utilizes fractioned organic oils for their super penetration and non-clogging benefits. Each pure, vegan formula is free of GMOs, petroleum byproducts, parabens, sulfates, fragrance and other harsh chemicals and preservatives. Kindred Skincare only uses certified organic, food-grade oils in their handmade batches, making this brand an embodiment of clean beauty. Our mutual love for clean beauty and living, as well as our love for inspiring others to use less harmful products, has turned the professional relationship between Frances, Tiffany, and I into a one-of-a-kind friendship. To find an individual who shared the same dedication to clean products is heartening, and you will feel Frances’s devotion to her products as soon as her oils absorb into your skin.
Kindred Morning Moisturizer
Good morning, sun! Kindred Morning Moisturizer allows you to feel the warmth of the sun even before beginning your day. As soon as you open the bottle, the scent of carrot seed oil welcomes you good morning. Carrot seed oil and red raspberry oil have long been used to help dilute the effect of the sun’s rays on our skin. While they aren’t meant to be used as your go to sunscreen, these oils do have protective properties that will offer a little extra protection during your everyday routine. Grape seed, coconut, and arnica oil soothe the skin and reduce inflammation while petitgrain and palmarosa oil lift the spirits and help regulate your skin’s natural oil production. You’ll be ready to seize the day with your best face forward!
Benefits of Oil Cleansing
What is oil cleansing, you may ask? Oil cleansing is a historically unique and effective way to remove toxins without stripping the skin. Have you ever washed your face with bar soap or face wash and immediately your skin feels dry and pinched, or your makeup is still lingering on your face? Why is it that when some products work wonderfully for a few days, or a few months, but the long term brings blemishes? The cycle seems endless. It's exhausting. It's painful. It's expensive!
Products that use emulsifiers and thickeners can strip the oil out of our skin, leaving our largest organ trying to repair itself by replacing the oil that was stripped away. This leaves us in a cycle of being tight and dry followed by the inevitable oil slick. Each time we strip the oil away, our skin over-compensates for the lack of moisture by creating more oil.
Using the principle “like dissolves like”, plant based oils dissolve excess oil without stripping. Oil cleansers contain antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients that also improve the texture and appearance of your skin. Oil cleansing is easy and effective. Simply massage the oil gently into your face, allowing it to soak in to your skin for a few minutes. Then, with a warm face towel, gently rub the oil from your face. Follow with a rinse of warm water or hop into the shower to finish washing the oil off. No need to use soap, either, just moisturize with a facial oil such as the Morning Moisturizer or Kindred Nightly Nourish.
Oil cleansing allows you to pull out dirt without clogging your pores. Cleansing oils bind to surface impurities and allows them to be comfortably rinsed away, leaving the skin clean, soft, and hydrated.
Kindred products, such as the Oil Cleanse, loosen the top layer of sebum that traps dirt and makeup, which is deeper within the pores. By massaging the product all over your face, throat, and chest cleansing removes foreign particles while maintaining a healthy sebum. Some Kindred products, like the Oil Cleanse and Blemish Cleanse, also have organic geranium essential oil which helps with sun spots. The Oil and Blemish Cleanses are high in linoleic acid, as well. Years of studies show that dermatitis can be helped by the topical treatment of linoleic acid. As you can see, oil cleansing is a unique technique and practice that any skin type will benefit from.
