The current concern about green living extends beyond the environment to personal care, and many consumers have developed an interest in natural and organic skin care. After all, what is the use of purifying our homes and workplaces if we are adding toxins to our bodies? It stands to reason, then, that many of us have begun to look into the use of a natural skin care product for our beauty regimen.

But what are some of the differences between natural and organic skin care and traditional commercial preparations? Many non-natural products have a high percentage of water as a base ingredient. Obviously, water is a natural ingredient, but what this means is that you, the consumer, are purchasing a product which is highly diluted. That can translate into some very expensive water!

Non-natural commercial products might also use blends of artificial thickeners and fillers in order to make their products look smooth and creamy. Finally, most non-natural skin care products use chemicals as preservatives. Your best bet when looking for natural and organic skin care products is to read the labels and educate yourself.

A natural skin care product line will be oriented toward plant and mineral ingredients that come from our gorgeous green earth and these ingredients will often be referred to as botanical-based. Natural and organic skin care products will, for the most part, not utilize man-made or chemical ingredients in their products. These natural and organic skin care products focus on stimulating cell growth and rejuvenating your skin, beginning with thorough cleansing and proceeding through gentle toning and moisturizing. Natural skin care products are never harsh or damaging to the skin. It is important to remember that deep cleansing of the skin is important, but it should not be done in a way that strips the skin of its natural oils.

The distinctive amber/burgundy color of Combray is due to the generous amount of Oxofulleram present (don’t worry, the color is not strong and quickly disappears after you apply it). Oxofulleram is a patent-pending antioxidant developed by Solenne which is available only in Combray. Clinical studies show it is highly effective at reducing the appearance of free radical damage such as that associated with age, sun, and inflammation. And, it is more gentle even than Vitamin E.

Combray is designed to mimic and supplement your skin’s own protection method of sebum, which is an antioxidant-rich oil. Combray contains only the essential ingredients Oxofulleram and grape seed oil, and nothing else. No added colors, perfumes, emulsifiers, stabilizers, or any other chemical. Combray is for any skin type, including oily and combination skin.

Solenne is a science company based in The Netherlands, and Combray represents a significant scientific achievement in application of antioxidants in skin care. Combray has quickly become quite a success in The Netherlands. The NRC Handelsblad, a national newspaper of record in The Netherlands, featured Solenne and Combray in a full front-page feature in the Science Section. The NRC said that Oxofulleram “beats as it sweeps as it cleans” free radicals, invoking the famous vacuum cleaner ads, and called it “a beautiful hybrid of Vitamins E and C.”
