The moment I committed to a zero-waste and all natural/ Ayurveda based lifestyle, I knew it was important to begin changing over my beauty and wellness routine to products that aligned. While searching for companies, I found it incredibly hard to find products that were packaged in all glass as well as ones that were made from 100% natural and organic ingredients. For me to invest in a product, I knew it had to be in line with all my core values and be: zero waste, Ayurvedic, and 100% natural. Believe me when I say this -- finding a product to meet all this criteria is no easy endeavor. (In fact, it is near impossible).
When I came across Elanveda, a conscious beauty and wellness company based in Malibu, California, I knew it was a match made in heaven. Their products are intentionally and ethically crafted and use 100% organic ingredients. Each product is created with Ayurvedic principles in mind, which helps rejuvenate our bodies from the inside out, making you feel and look amazing. Additionally, they ship the product 'zero waste,' meaning: the shipping box and tissue paper are both recyclable, the individual product packaging is recyclable, and the product itself comes in glass containers which can be recycled or up-cycled at the end of the product's lifetime. Elanveda produces products that are truly a testament of what can happen when love and intentionality meet in the wellness sphere... each time you support Elanveda you support abundant health for both your body and for the earth. A win-win in my world!
A month and a half ago, I swapped out my chemical filled face lotion for Elanveda's REGALE botanical face oil... and I am never going back.
The REGALE face oil is 100% natural, cruelty free, and vegan. The oil feels light on the skin and it smells amazing. Our skin is the largest organ on our body and it is so important that we don't put things on our skin that we wouldn't want to put directly in our mouths. Elanveda's skin care oils are free of parabens, preservatives, and petrochemicals. All of the ingredients are Ayurveda based plants that you would feel comfortable putting into your body. The ingredients include:
Jojoba Seed Oil, Borage Seed Oil, Marula Seed Oil, Rosewood Oil, Lavender Flower Oil, Rose Geranium Flower Oil, Ylang Ylang Flower Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Sweet Scented Geranium Flower Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Clary Sage Oil, Açaí Fruit Oil, Carrot Seed Oil, Cape Gold Flower Oil, Spanish Jasmine Absolute Oil, Damask Rose Flower Oil, Palmarosa Leaf Oil, Bitter Orange Flower Oil, Myrrh Oil, Frankincense Oil, and Chamomile Flower Oil.
This oil is truly food for your skin.
I use the botanical oil at night so that it has ample time to absorb into my skin without being touched or tampered with. The face oil perfectly completes my nightly facial routine and allows me to finish my day feeling nourished, refreshed, and clean. Before applying the oil, I take off my makeup and lightly exfoliate my skin with a cleanser. After this, I gently dry brush my face and then lightly mist my face with homemade rose water. Once the mist is dry I slowly roll the REGALE botanical face oil onto my face and neck. I apply the oil slowly in circular motions, using it as a chance to massage and nourish my skin. I love that the oil is applied through a roller because you have complete control over how much oil is applied to your face (and none goes to waste)!
This facial oil is considered ayurvedic because of the plant blend it is derived from, however, it feels so much deeper than that. Each time I apply the oil, I feel how deeply I am nourishing every aspect of my life. Taking the time each night to slowly apply the oil is a radical act of self love that invites me to choose myself and the health of my mind, body, and spirit over and over again.
I have noticed several things since I began using the REGALE face oil. The first and most substantial benefit I have experienced is how hydrated my skin feels. I live in Colorado where the weather can be intensely dry during the winter months, and this oil has been extremely soothing. I have also noticed that the overall pigmentation of my skin has evened out and spots that are typically dark have lightened and neutralized to match the rest of my skin tone. The marula oil in the blend is an essential omega 6 fatty acid that deeply hydrates while also combating eczema and acne. Jojoba oil is anti-inflammatory and reduces redness, keeping skin calm and comfortable. The REGALE oil acts as a powerful anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, hydrating, acne fighting balm all rolled into one heavenly scented serum. My skin feels vibrant and healthy in a way it hasn't for years.
If you're looking to upgrade your beauty routine while also caring for mother earth -- look no further. Elanveda will nourish your skin and make you feel beautiful and radiant inside and out.
