Health Is Beauty

Product Review: Intelligent Nutrients USDA Certified Organic Anti-Aging Face Cleanser

Intelligent Nutrients’ USDA Certified Organic Anti-Aging Cleanser is hands down one of my favorite facial cleansers! A pioneer in plant-based personal care and aromatherapy as well as an active environmentalist who changed the world of beauty, Horst M. Rechelbacher is the founder of Intelligent Nutrients. He also founded Aveda Corporation in 1978 and sold it nearly two decades later to Estee Lauder.

Horst shifted his focus to Intelligent Nutrients, a health and beauty company that lives to the highest standards of 100% food-based, safe, non-toxic, and organic ingredients. Intelligent Nutrients’ Certified Organic Anti-Aging Cleanser is made with food-grade ingredients and for all skin types. It even keeps my easily blemish-prone skin clear…which is HUGE! I can’t tell you how many facial cleansers I’ve tried over the years that claim to rid acne and do nothing for my skin. This natural cleanser makes my face look smoother and more luminous without feeling dry or tight, and keeps my skin perfectly balanced. There’s no suds either in this organic cleanser and it has somewhat of a creamy texture (light yellow beige in color) that easily spreads on the skin. The plant-based oils gently clean dissolving dirt, oil, and makeup. Intelligent Nutrients’ Certified Organic Anti-Aging Cleanser has a light fresh scent that makes me feel like I’m at the spa every time I wash my face.
