The Organic Skin Co. Hydration Agent Moisturizer Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

The Organic Skin Co. Hydration Agent Moisturizer is the second product that I have tried from this company, and The Organic Skin Co. The Good Oil is what really sold me on their breathtaking products.

The Organic Skin Co. is a wondrous cruelty-free skincare company that I just recently discovered, and their beautiful products are effective and a pleasure to use. They take sustainability seriously from their responsibly sourced ingredients to their sustainable packaging. Not only is their packaging recyclable, but their exterior boxes are actually compostable. Furthermore, they make top quality organic products that are affordable!

About The Organic Skin Co.,

Our story starts in New Zealand. It's a part of us, the place where The Organic Skin Co. was born and - if you ever care to look us up (you're most welcome!) - it's where you'll find us, beavering away at the task of creating great skincare and makeup that comes from the earth, not a laboratory.

We're the brainchild of Megan Douglas, one-time model, one-time fashion designer, one-time wanderer, now naturopath, entrepreneur, and heir to the accumulated knowledge of five generations of medical herbalists. Alongside her sister-in-law and our CEO - Lisette - Megan is the wielder of the big (but soft and cuddly) organic stick that keeps us all together.

At The Organic Skin Co., our vision is simple: to create modern, high-performing, organic skincare and makeup that cares for you and gives our planet a helping hand. That's why we're all about regenerative products that come from the earth, work like magic on your skin, and can either be recycled or returned to the soil after use.

Here's our promise to you and to our planet: Every time you buy one of our products, we'll plant a tree.

The Organic Skin Co. Hydration Agent Moisturizer is not just a wondrous treat to the skin, but also to the senses. The Vanilla and Amaranth Face Moisturizer has a rich, warm and creamy aroma that is punctuated by the most comforting and beautiful permutation of vanilla. It is formulated to deeply hydrate the skin, to smooth fine lines, to prevent clogged pores, and to calm sensitive or stressed skin. It is lightweight, ultra-emollient and it melts into the skin and immediately gets to work. It smells so delectable that I really slow down and savor the experience. I use it day and night– with an additional high SPF sunscreen during the day– and it leaves my skin velvety soft, undeniably smooth and quenched. This cream is ultra-luxe, but with a surprisingly affordable price tag. 

According to The Organic Skin Co.,

There’s something about spring rain, a combination of sun and moisture that promises renewal. Our Vanilla and Amaranth Face Moisturizer offers a similar kind of replenishment. Filled with rejuvenating organic ingredients, including organic aloe vera, shea butter, and jojoba cold pressed oil, along with shots of amaranth, calendula, honeysuckle, rosemary and vanilla CO2 extracts, this is an intensely hydrating, luxurious bioactive face cream that helps revitalize the skin, no matter whether it’s dry, damaged, or just plain dehydrated

Ethics are important to us. We want you to be clear about what ingredients we put in our products and we want you to know that we're doing the right thing by you and by our planet. Here's a look at all the little things we do to give you peace of mind.

  • Amaranth supercritical extract provides a dose of Omega 3 and Vitamin E, helping create good skin texture and tone.
  • The relaxing scent of Vanilla Oil helps to calm the mind (everyone say “Ohm”) as well as care for the skin.
  • The addition of Jojoba Seed Oil helps to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenate the skin.
  • Vegan and cruelty free. Always.
  • Lots of organics. Free of nasty stuff.
  • Recyclable packaging.
  • One product, one tree. Mother Nature looks after you, you look after Mother Nature. That’s symbiosis, right there.

Features and Claims:

BIOGRO: The good folks at BioGro set high standards and we work hard to not only meet them, but surpass them. Whenever you see the BioGro stamp on one of our products, that means it's 'Made with Organics', which is a guarantee that the product contains over 70% organic ingredients. In addition to this, we list the organic and natural percentage of each and every product we make on our packaging.

CRUELTY FREE: This is a no-brainer. We just don't get why anyone needs (or would want) to test their products on animals.

VEGAN: Our products are certified vegan by the UK Vegan Society. You don't want to make them part of your diet, but we guarantee that your skin will eat them up! Oh, and by the way, our products are gluten free too.

SUPERCRITICAL EXTRACTS: Supercritical Extracts are kind of like our super power. They're super natural, super pure, and up to 250 times more potent than conventional extracts. And that makes them super good for your skin!

ONE PRODUCT ONE TREE: Our 'One Product, One Tree' initiative comes with this promise: Every time you buy one of our products, you plant a tree. Your skin blooms and a tree grows.
