#NourishYourSkin Series: Griffonia – The Happy Skin Super Ingredient

Origins of Griffonia

Griffonia Simplicifolia is a woody climbing shrub native to West Africa and Central Africa. It grows to about 3 metres and has greenish flowers followed by black pods.

Benefits of Griffonia

Griffonia offers numerous benefits for the skin. From skin tightening to helping minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this natural plant extract provides antioxidant protection from damaging effects of the environment.

Why is Griffonia also known for its mood-boosting skincare properties?

We are all familiar with the phrase ‘when you look good, you feel good’. Did you know? The seeds of the Griffonia plant contain 5-HTP. The naturally occurring amino acid, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), is the chemical precursor in the biosynthesis of serotonin. When used, 5-HTP transforms personal care formulas into true neuro-cosmetics, capable of making consumers feel and look good.

How can I incorporate Griffonia into my beauty regime?

Treat your skin to a refreshing deep cleanse and detox with certified organic and vegan skincare that is supercharged with mood-enhancing Griffonia, vitamin and antioxidant-rich Kale and essential skin minerals for healthy happy skin.

The 3D Cleanse

Treat your skin to a deep cleanse with the Kale 3D Cleanse, a unique colour changing facial wash which lifts impurities to reveal healthy and radiant skin. Superfood Kale and Griffonia detoxify and protect against pollution, helping to minimise the signs of ageing, whilst hyaluronic acid, probiotics and oxygenating extracts work in synergy to energise and refresh the skin, as this facial wash lifts make up and grime.

The Multi-Tasking 3-in-1 Treatment

Renew, refine and smooth your skin with Kale Enzymatic Exfoliator. This multi-tasking 3-in-1 treatment (an all-in-one cleanser, exfoliator and mask) is powered with non-abrasive pomegranate enzymes to gently exfoliate and reveal a smoother, healthier complexion. Superfood Kale extract protects skin from damaging free radicals caused by stress and pollution, whilst helping to increase skin suppleness. Healing probiotics oxygenate the skin for a smoother and healthier appearance, whilst Griffonia extract provides a protective shield against daily environmental aggressors.

The T.S.L Neck Elixir

When it comes to skincare, the majority of us have a set regime for the face, but what about the neck? Treat your neck to some serious TLC with T.S.L. Tighten, Sculpt and Lift Neck Elixir, a specially formulated cream to lift and firm the neck. Antioxidant-rich bioactives and peptides stimulate collagen and elastin production to protect the structural components of the skin and minimise the signs of ageing. Vitamin and mineral-rich Kale and Griffonia extracts protect skin from environmental stress and damage.
