You’ve heard of Farm-to-Table; locally sourced, ethically grown, organic, and better for you and the environment. That same sentiment is what inspired us to create Farm-to-Face Skincare. We love the Hudson Valley, and wanted to bring the magic of our home’s farms to your skin. We’re breaking down everything Farm-to-Face, and our ingredients sourced locally right from the Hudson Valley.
What is Farm-to-Face?
Farm-to-Face means ingredients grown on small farms and used in skincare products to give you the results you deserve without harsh chemicals or toxins. The benefits of natural ingredients in skincare have become more and more apparent, and we wanted to incorporate them into our gentle, handcrafted skincare products. Let’s get into our locally sourced ingredients and their skin benefits.
Sunflower Seed Oil
Sunflower Seed Oil is one of our most used and loved skincare ingredients. We source this amazing ingredient from Hudson Valley Cold Pressed Oils right in our lab’s home of Pleasant Valley. Sunflower Seed Oil is ultra-moisturizing, which is why you can find it in a majority of our products. Sunflower Seed Oil is packed with vitamins and antioxidants like Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K that increase your skin’s health overtime.
Organic Oats are another multi-beneficial ingredient that you can find in many of our products. We locally source our Organic Oats from Gianforte Farm in Cazenovia, New York. Oats are moisturizing, exfoliating, and a natural cleanser. We use Organic Oats in our Natural Bar Soaps, Clarifying Clay Mask, and more to give you the soft, hydrated skin of your dreams.
Beeswax has become an increasingly popular ingredient in skincare products due to it’s hydrating, anti-inflammatory properties. Our Beeswax is sourced locally from Crystal’s Honey, and it’s ultra-nourishing properties make it a favorite ingredient for those with a damaged skin barrier. Beeswax creates a hydrating, protective barrier on the skin that aids in protecting it from environmental factors such as pollution.
When asked about the benefits of Coffee, higher energy levels are the first thing that come to mind. To us, it’s skincare benefits far outweigh the benefits paired with drinking it. Coffee is a natural exfoliant that rids your skin of dead skin cells without being too harsh on sensitive skin. Coffee is also known to soothe and depuff inflamed, irritated skin, reduce cellulite, and fade hyperpigmentation. We locally source our Coffee from Irving Farm in Millerton, New York.
Honey is another increasingly popular skin and haircare ingredient. Sourced from Hummingbird Ranch in Salt Point, New York, Honey is a hydrating, healing, and protective ingredient that helps maintain a healthy skin barrier.
Did you know Beer actually comes with a variety of skin benefits? The Malt found in beer gently exfoliates skin, helps to increase Collagen production, and prevents signs of aging in the skin. We source our beer from local brewery Hudson Brewing Co.
