Eco-Chick Tested: Naturopathica’s Plant Stem Cell Booster Serum

Plant Stem cell serumJust a dab of Naturopathica’s Plant Stem Cell Booster Serum packs quite the punch. I’ve followed the directions religiously like the good girl I am —  apply daily at night on face and neck before moisturizer for 30 days, repeat every 90 days —  for the past five months. My skin looks healthier, dewy and more radiant.

This little 0.5 ounce number will surely go the distance for you and so it’s worth the small investment ($48). More importantly, the purity of the ingredients in this serum is unsurpassed.

Plant Stem Cells are a potent, sustainable way to harvest the benefits of botanical ingredients. This serum uses stem cells from Echinacea and Butterfly Bush, the plants’ own repairing properties, to help curb inflammation in lackluster, over-exposed skin. Plant Stem Cells from Echinacea boosts new collagen synthesis, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Butterfly Bush plant stem cells protect the skin, preventing collagen damage from harmful UVs and pollutants.

Want in on another little secret? Eco-Chick is a bit obsessed with Naturopathica’s Pumpkin Purifying Enzyme Peel ($56), but not just because Thanksgiving is approaching. The ingredients are so pure and the product smells so delicious, I have literally thought about tasting it. Weird? Perhaps.

I use the product 1-2 times per week and I love the way it exfoliates. It will be a welcome addition to your winter regimen, when dry, irritated skin is at its peak.
