Is Kale the New Superfood Skincare Ingredient?


When makeup extraordinaire Gucci Westman posted a picture of the above products on her Instagram I was intrigued. Is kale the new it skincare ingredient? It will be if Eminence Organic Skin Care has anything to say about it. All of the brand’s products are handmade in Hungary and based off fruits and vegetables. Their new kale-based line-up includes two products: The Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum ($110) and Masque ($70). The brand says that it’s the carotenoids in kale that are the most beneficial to skin as they help fight the free radical damage that causes skin aging. It’s also a powerhouse of antioxidants. In addition the products are loaded with Vitamins C and E, spinach, broccoli, avocado, lemon, and grapefruit all of which were added to help brighten and lighten sun-damaged skin, prevent inflammation, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The two products will also be the basis for kale-inspired facials offered at spas like Go Green in New York City and RA Organic in L.A. It’s long been proven that topical applications of vitamins (found in high quantities in superfoods) can be beneficial for skin health, so I’d certainly be down to give these products a try. What do you think? Has anyone tried kale-based skincare products?

  1. Although I am yet to try kale based skin care products, I know for a fact that herbal skin care is good not only for the routine nourishing of skin but also for treatment of skin disorders like eczema and psorasis. Most herbal skin care products don’t have any side effects (the most important reason for preferring them over synthetic products) Moreover, herbal skin care products can be easily made at home, hence making them even more attractive. So, herbal skin care is the way to go. However, this does not mean that you totally discard the synthetic products. Some people go to the extent of debating with their dermatologist, if he/she suggests a synthetic product. You should accept the fact that some skin orders might need usage of clinically proven non-herbal skin care products.
