Unveiling the Natural Ingredients In Chinook Skincare

In a world saturated with skincare products laden with chemicals and artificial additives, the pursuit of radiant, healthy skin can sometimes feel like an elusive goal. But fear not, for the secret to achieving that coveted glow lies in the lap of nature itself. 

At Chinook Skincare, we understand the importance of harnessing the power of natural ingredients to provide you with the best skincare solutions. Let's peek at our products' key ingredients, helping you reveal your most beautiful self in the most natural way possible.

Superfruit Glow with our Gel-to-Milk

Our Superfruit Gel-to-Milk Mulit-Purpose oil emulsion is cold-processed, preserving heat-sensitive nutrients in our superfruit seed oils to support your skin’s barrier, microbiome, and overall skin health. 

Did you know dry or damaged skin often has a compromised barrier function? The outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, acts as a protective barrier. When this barrier is compromised, it can hinder the absorption of skincare ingredients, making those precious active ingredients less effective, if at all.

Oils for Nutrients: Vitamins, Polyphenols, Antioxidants & Fatty Acids 

The nutrients found in these carrier oils are necessary to maintain skin health; they help protect the skin from oxidative stress and aging, neutralize free radicals, prevent further damage, support collagen production, are highly moisturizing, and can offer some protection from damaging UV rays:

  • Sea Buckthorn fruit oil
  • Elderberry seed oil
  • Cranberry seed oil
  • Apple seed oil
  • Pomegranate seed oil 
  • Vitamin E Oil (D-alpha tocopherol)

Sea Buckthorn ~ Superfruit Star ✨

Bioactive Compounds in Sea Buckthorn and their Benefits:
