Some of you may have probably heard the good news. Yes, it’s for real! Origins is back in the Philippines!!! For those who are not so familiar with the brand, let me give a quick background and introduce you to their best sellers.
Origins products are formulated with natural and certified organic ingredients and 100% essential oils. This means they are formulated without parabens, pthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, PABA, petroleum, paraffin, DEA, and animal ingredients. Origins manufacture using a combination of renewable resources, wind energy and earth-friendly practices.
Have you ever wondered how a simple plant can be transformed to a powerful formula? During the event launch of Origins, I was introduced to the journey from plant to formula which is pretty interesting.
STEP 1: Never stop discovering.
Since its inception in 1990, Origins has been scouring the Earth to uncover the most efficacious plants and harness their potent ingredients to create high-performance natural skincare products. This process has allowed Origins to turn to nature for inspiration and science for validation.
Step 2: Source.
The curation of nature’s most potent ingredients from around the world to unleash their power is a rigorous process that starts long before the lab.
Step 3: Fingerprint.
After finding potent natural ingredients from around the world, Origins tests them for safety and efficacy. The benefits of plant extracts are analyzed and studied to ensure only the purest and most efficacious ingredients are selected for testing purposes.
Step 4: Purify formulate test.
Then, Origins takes it a step further by isolating the most potent elements of each ingredient and uses the refined and purified extracts of its most active constituents.
Step 5: Commitment.
I really love brands that are committed to taking good care of Mother Earth. They have a Plant-A-Tree campaign. Since the start of the project, Origins has helped reforestation projects globally by helping to plant more than 500,000 trees around the world. They also have “Return to Origins” Recycling Program, wherein they accept all cosmetic empty containers regardless of brand at any Origins retail stores and Origins department store counters.
Step 6: They make sure to create visually appealing packaging.
Origins is committed to constantly searching for new answers to age-old problems and discover the most potent natural ingredients to improve skin’s health and appearance. Now, let’s see the outcome of their discoveries and research. Here are some of Origins’ star products.
Origins has been known for their masks. They have a solution for every skin type and need. Powered by clinically proven natural ingredients, these multi-taskers start to purify, clarify or rehydrate skin instantly. Origins mask solutions range from Clear Improvement™ Active Charcoal Mask to clear pores with Activate Charcoal that absorbs environmental toxins and decongests skin to Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Mask featuring Avocado and Apricot Kernel oil to deeply quench skin.
One of Origins’ known skincare line is Make A Difference. The Make A Difference™ collection helps repair and rejuvenate damaged and dehydrated skin through the power of Rose of Jericho, which is found in the driest deserts of North Africa and can withstand total dehydration for decades then return to life with mere drops of water. In fact, during the event we were left at awe when they showed us a dried and dehydrated Rose of Jericho return to life with just drops of water. So for those who have dry skin, you already know what to get!
Origins’ bestselling anti-ageing line is Plantscription, which is powered by the bark from the rare Anogeissus tree. Traditionally used as a natural wound healer, this powerful botanical in the Plantscription™ collection helps encourage the production of fibrillin to keep skin looking youthful and line free.
For tired looking skin, they have the GinZing collection, which has Panax Ginseng and Caffeine from the mountains of China and forests of Ethiopia. These potent ingredients are known to help strengthen and eliminate signs of fatigue for a refreshed and revitalized look, creating the appearance of a full night’s sleep.
These are only some of Origins bestsellers. Visit their newest store at SM Makati to see all their skincare lines and know which one best suits the needs of your skin.
Oh, and as for their price points? They are actually affordable, about PHP 1,300 and above.
