Giving Healthy, Sustainable Gifts this Mother’s Day
At Plantioxidants, spring is hands down one of the best seasons when it comes to celebrations. Yes, the winter months have holiday party after holiday party, but spring offers us other important celebrations, such as the start of a new flower bloom, warmer weather and the reminder to honor Earth Day all month long in April and beyond. If this season doesn’t reaffirm the value of taking care of others and the planet, we don’t know what does.
The next big celebration on the agenda: Mother’s Day! Our founder has always had a hard time getting his mother gifts because he didn’t want to create waste or give her something unhealthy.
“Honestly, one of the best parts of starting Plantioxidants is that I now know what I’ll be getting my mother every year for Mother’s Day. Keeping her healthy in a sustainable way will never get old.”
To help you celebrate Mother’s Day and give the gift of clean (i.e. organic), green (i.e. sustainable) beauty, we’ve put together three special sets, all of which are 20% off for a limited time! Free standard shipping in the U.S. still applies, along with any other U.S. order!
Hydration is key when it comes to maintaining a youthful glow, which is why we relied on some of nature’s most hydrating ingredients when formulating our softening Toning Essence and refreshing Hydration Treatment. Delivering the benefits of the mythical Fountain of Youth, our Toning Essence locks in water and nutrients daily while the Hydrating Treatment ensures that your skin cells are properly plumped through multiple treatments weekly.
The Toning Essence gets nutrients not only from our antioxidant-rich complex, but also from the range of teas we use:
We lock all these nutrients in with hyaluronic acid found in Japanese sweet potatoes. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning it works like a magnet to pull water from the air and helps it stay put. In turn, this keeps your skin smooth and hydrated. This carefully crafted toning essence offers an ultra-sheer, ultra-hydrating formula that will deliver a healthy, youthful glow to whomever receives this gift from you.
But your gift doesn’t stop there. They are also getting our Overnight Hydration Treatment. This is a fan favorite, and everyone is surprised by how quickly their skin drinks up the cucumber and kale juice.
Cucumber will never go out of style. Even the most sensitive skin types can benefit from it. Here are just a few reasons:
Kale is one of our favorites as well and was very intentionally used in our juice mask:
No matter how sensitive her skin, this Fountain of Youth set will surely hydrate her skin in a healthy way.
Resting and relaxing are one way to help your mother during Mother’s Day, but why not go a step further and help her repair and restore at the same time?
Our Reparative Serum has a lot of great ingredients, but two in particular help deliver its reparative benefits:
The best repairing partner is our Restorative Eye Cream, which relies on vitamins A, B, C, D, and E to help the sensitive skin under and around your eyes.
A little Plantioxidants R&R will only help her rest and relax for weeks and months to come.
Maybe you are blessed with the kind of mom who just doesn’t stop. She manages to fight off every obstacle and challenge thrown at her like they are tiny pebbles. If that’s the case, you need to make sure you give her the best shield possible. Our Super Mom set is perfect for just that because it gives her the gift of rich moisturizer and skin-nourishing oil.
Both of these rely on nutrients from a set of cold-pressed seeds. Most seeds used for skincare products are expeller pressed where the seeds are squeezed under high pressure to get the oils out of them. These seeds can be heated up to 210 degrees Fahrenheit. However, at this heat and pressure, some nutrients can be lost. That’s why we use cold pressing for our Power Seed Menagerie Cream and Power Seed Menagerie Oil. When gently cold pressing, the seeds are not heated above 120 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure nutrients like tocopherols and phosphatides are not lost.
There are several seeds we use in these unique formulas, but here are a few of our favorites:
If you’re looking for a way to keep your mother’s skin moisturized and nourished, this is it.
Don’t Limit Mother’s Day to One Day!
