You may know mangosteen as “The Queen of Fruits” (or you may not know it at all!), but we recognize it as a powerhouse skin care ingredient with some pretty amazing benefits. Mangosteen is the color of a plum on the exterior, with luscious, white fruit segments on the interior, and smaller than the palm of your hand. The superfruit is covered in a leathery rind that protects the deliciously sweet, white fruit inside. The mangosteen fruit is native to Southeast Asia and is admired for its mighty antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
An impressive type of antioxidant is found within this fruit, especially in its rind. Mangosteen contains high antioxidant concentrations categorized as rich and biologically active xanthones, which protect the skin in a number of ways. By capturing free radical compounds, xanthones prevent environmental skin damage while anti-inflammatory benefits protect skin cells from further destruction and help diminish the visible signs of aging. The mangosteen fruit also promotes microcirculation, which improves the appearance of skin vitality.
Eminence Organic Skin Care first introduced you to our Mangosteen Lactic Collection over two years ago, and now we’re back with an expanded range of products available for both the face and body to round out your clients’ daily skin care rituals for full-body radiance and replenishment. Formulated to address the root causes of dull and tired looking skin, the collection combines the superfruit with our proprietary Lactic Acid Complex. Read on for some tips to incorporate these new products into your clients’ skin care regimens:
An essential first step in any skin care routine is an effective cleanser to rid the face of makeup, dirt and oil that has built up throughout the day. Enter the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser. This productstarts with a milky gel texture before foaming into a soft, creamy lather that removes build-up and gently exfoliates without over-stripping. Extend the benefits of a professional treatment or peel at home with this resurfacing cleanser, designed to be used once per day.
For a gentle physical buffing action, pair the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser with a shake (or two) of our award winning Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. We warn you: the scent combination is heavenly!
The Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser’s key ingredients include mangosteen and our unique Lactic Acid Complex (which is comprised of lactic acid, ribose and red clover flower extract) to gently resurface the skin and refine pores. This cleanser is appropriate for all skin types, including sensitive.
Next up in the skin care routine is our new Mangosteen Revitalizing Mist, which also serves as a perfect pick-me-up for an energizing boost. A combination of mangosteen, invigorating ribose and pore-refining red clover work in harmony to refresh the skin. Apply the Mangosteen
Revitalizing Mist by spritzing your face directly or by using a cotton pad, avoiding the eye area. The Mangosteen Revitalizing Mist can also be added into a masque or moisturizer of your choice to incorporate its energizing and refining properties.
The mist is free of lactic acid and may be used as often as you’d like!
Now it’s time to apply the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate. This product removes and prevents build-up while promoting radiance, and achieves a primer-like result to enhance cosmetic applications. This leave-on concentrate is gentle enough to use twice a day after cleansing, morning and night.
For additional hydrating and anti-aging benefits, follow up one pump of the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate with one pump of our best-selling Bamboo Firming Fluid.
The brand new Mangosteen Gel Moisturizer is specially formulated to flawlessly layer over the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate, leaving the complexion photo-ready. It starts as a dewy cream-gel and then melts into the skin as you massage the product in, revealing a luminous yet matte finish. For a lighter application, mix a small amount of product in your hands with a few drops of water. For extra hydration, apply a thicker layer in dry areas or press a few drops of the Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil over top.
Body care is just as important as the delicate skin on the face, which is where the Mangosteen Body Lotion, formulated with our Lactic Acid Complex, comes in.
Packing a double punch, the Mangosteen Body Lotion simultaneously hydrates and gently resurfaces to reveal bright, radiant skin, as well as alleviates keratosis pilaris, or the dry bumps that can form on the back of the arms. The Mangosteen Body Lotion absorbs quickly for a non-greasy, satin finish. This product works for all skin types and can be applied at any time of day, or even multiple times throughout the day.
A hydrating hand cream is more important now than ever before due to some pretty serious handwashing. Introducing our Mangosteen Replenishing Hand Cream!
This deliciously scented hand cream is specially formulated to keep hands looking ageless and feeling irresistibly soft, even through frequent handwashing. Keep this cream by your side and reach for it throughout the day to deeply hydrate and gently resurface from palm to fingertip with mangosteen, lactic acid, red clover flower extract and ribose.
Formulated to address the root causes of dullness and tired, uneven looking skin, the Mangosteen Collection resurfaces, replenishes and refines in a complete skin care ritual to unveil a naturally luminous complexion from head to toe. Use the entire Mangosteen Collection together for a full body routine, or mix and match with other Eminence Organic Skin Care products to meet your clients’ individual skin care needs.
