Those with sensitive skin know how difficult it can be to find products that don’t increase inflammation and cause redness. Synthetic fragrances and dyes, as well as certain detergents and soaps can damage the skin’s natural moisture barrier and cause increased sensitivity. Even if you don’t think your skin is especially sensitive, many ingredients can cause flare-ups you don’t expect. That’s why science-backed natural, cruelty-free skin care is so important to Altilis Beauty.
All Altilis Beauty product formulations include only the most effective active ingredients that come straight from nature. These include breadfruit flower extract, gotu kola and organic honeybush, just to name a few. Through innovation and sustainability, we’re able to add these powerful plant-based ingredients to skin care. The results include anti-aging benefits, increased hydration and overall skin health, and the reduced appearance of acne, redness and rosacea.
Altilis Beauty products are different from other natural skin care on the market, and here’s why.
1. We Were the First Skincare Line to Harness the Power of Breadfruit Flowers
Altilis is the species name of breadfruit, which is a staple food crop in many tropical islands. Our InflorEssence line is the first ever skincare line in the world to be made from our patented breadfruit flower extract, and we use this powerful plant as the key active ingredient in all of our products.
Our patented extract has higher antioxidant activity than vitamins E and C to help your skin glow and protect it from further damage. In addition to its antioxidant activity, breadfruit is known to reverse and prevent the appearance of sunspots and age spots caused by UV radiation. It also targets acne, rosacea and wrinkles, and provides anti-inflammatory and UVB-protective properties. Breadfruit also works to replenish the skin’s natural moisture barrier and increase skin’s overall health.
2. Our Natural Ingredients Are Backed by Science
Don’t take our word for it — science agrees that natural ingredients such as breadfruit are powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the skin from free radicals, which damage skin cells and can lead to things like aging skin and dark spots. And that’s not all. We also use gotu kola (Centella asiatica), which has been proven to stimulate collagen growth, as well as acemannan polysaccharides (from aloe vera), which promotes healthy cell turnover. This helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. All of this from plants? Yes!
3. We’re Committed to Being Cruelty-Free
Altilis Beauty never tests on animals, but that’s not the only way our products are cruelty-free. We are a proud member of the Breadfruit community, working directly with stakeholders on a global scale to coordinate our commercial efforts to benefit the sustainability of the plant and respect its origins. We believe sourcing products in a sustainable way is truly the cruelty-free way.
4. Each Product is Hypoallergenic and Free of Synthetic Fragrances
According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), fragrance is the biggest cause of cosmetic contact dermatitis. This can lead to everything from a redness and rash, to increased skin sensitivity and even headaches. All Altilis Beauty products are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic, making them safe and effective for even the most sensitive skin types.
5. We’re Serious about Sustainability
We told you about how all our ingredients are sourced sustainably. But that’s not where our sustainability message ends. Breadfruit flowers used to be a waste product, until we discovered the value of the extract. Now, rather than composting these flowers we created a value chain for economic development and generation of new income sources.
We also use the highest post-consumer content at 30 percent to create our packaging. It is 100 percent recyclable too — right down to the ink we use. As for the bottles, they’re made from one type of plastic so you can recycle those as well. And because each bottle is airless, the product stays fresh until the last drop. You won’t want to waste a bit.
6. We’re Committed to Celebrating Everyone’s Skin
As much as we believe that our products have the power to enhance and care for all skin types, we know that everyone’s skin is unique. That’s why we’re committed to creating a space in the skincare world for everyone to have their voices heard, and to fostering open, honest discussions about what works — and what doesn’t. Whether you use our products or not (though we hope you do!), we want you to know that your skin is beautiful just the way it is.
