One of the great secrets to this luxurious skincare line can be found in the use of Pili and Moringa Oils that function as the "cornerstone of select My Prime Anti-Aging Formulas. Rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids, these extraordinary botanical oils have historically been used by Filipino women to achieve healthy, ageless skin." To read more about Pili and Moringa oils click here.
Moringa Oil is "widely cultivated in the Philippines, the Moringa Oleifera tree is considered one of the most nutritious plants on the planet. Living up to its reputation as a “miracle tree,” the Moringa tree is packed with omega fatty acids and a multitude of antioxidants including Vitamins A, C, and E. Nutritionally, it contains more Vitamin A than carrots, more Vitamin C than oranges, more potassium than bananas, and more calcium and protein than milk. Moringa oil is extracted from the seeds of the tree using environmentally sustainable practices. Supercharged with anti-aging benefits, this lightweight oil penetrates deep into the skin to enhance proper cell growth, replenish hydration, and bolster the skin’s natural defense against environmental attack. In addition, its high concentration of Vitamin C makes Moringa oil a natural skin brightener that helps even skin tone. Moringa oil is suitable for all skin types." (source)
Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer- A lightweight multi-tasking moisturizer that:
- Provides optimal and long-lasting hydration
- Softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles
- Imparts a lit-from-within glow
- Performs superbly under makeup
Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer is the most unique, effective, and amazing moisturizers that I have ever tried. I have tried many many moisturizers in my day, but none that have such unique qualities as this one. It is almost counter-intuitive that something this moisturizing and hydrating is capable of having a matte finish. By matte finish I do not mean that it is dry or uncomfortable- not in the least bit, in fact. Instead, this glorious moisturizer, that is power packed with high levels of antioxidants, sinks into your skin effortlessly and quickly without leaving behind any sort of greasy or oily residue. Honestly, I can't quite reconcile how these seemingly disparate elements are capable of residing so harmoniously in one phenomenal moisturizer. The mattifying effect allows you to apply makeup without encountering an oil slick that will compromise the finish of your foundation or tinted moisturizer in any way. What I also find difficult to comprehend is the fact that a mattifying moisturizer could be capable of imparting a healthy lit from within glow that accentuates and imparts a healthy vibrancy to the skin. This really is an amazing moisturizer that isn't like anything else that you have ever tried--EVER. Another feature of this phenomenal product is the fact that it hydrates and softens the skin so effectively that it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a profoundly powerful moisturizer that fights free-radicals with it's considerably powerful anti-aging antioxidants, and yet it is equally joyous to use.

- 70% of participants showed an increase in skin hydration in just one week.

- CELLACTIVE®-HYDRO: A blend of highly concentrated apple serum and polysaccharides that enhances the skin’s ability to retain moisture for optimal and long-lasting hydration.

My's founder and CEO, Tessa Yutadco, has implemented social responsibility initiatives that were specifically designed to improve the lives of the Filipino women and men who harvest and extract the Pili and Moringa oils used in My products (read more here). It is also important to note that the Pili and Moringa oils are sustainably harvested, and are grown without fertilizers or pesticides. Unlike so many skincare companies, My is uncompromising in the commitment to quality ingredients, healthy products, social responsibility, and transparency in everything they do. It is for these reasons, coupled with the sheer quality of the products, that I am so excited to have found My! Did I mention that My is CRUELTY FREE?!
Tessa takes her social responsibility initiatives very seriously, and as proof of this she has announced the following new partnership: August 8, 2012 through September 8, 2012 My will be donating 50% of the proceeds from ALL My purchases to Best Buddies International! Image source. My is one of the few companies out there that is ideologically in tune with the big picture-- not just in terms of providing the highest quality skincare, but also in terms of an innate awareness and respect of the needs of the world around us. Tessa really believes in both nurturing the skin, but more importantly in nurturing the planet and those who call it home. I absolutely believe in My, and in Tessa.
