Many of us know that we should be using a moisturizer, but we may not fully understand what the benefits are, or should be. The importance of moisturizer can not be over stated. Creams and oils provide vital support to our first line of defense from the elements. Additionally, we’ve included a list of seven things your moisturizer should be doing for you to encourage healthy, beautiful skin.

Reduce Appearance of Fine Lines

Your moisturizer should plump up your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines. And it should not need to be supplemented with night creams and eye creams and BB balms. A perfectly formulated moisturizer will deliver everything that your skin cells need to retain moisture and reduce signs of aging.


A great moisturizer will rapidly reduce redness, irritations and breakouts. An important factor to check for that your moisturizer is alcohol free. Unfortunately at lot of organic skin care uses high levels of alcohol as a preservative, but for a lot of people this can be too harsh and drying.


A well formulated moisturizer will soften and smooth your skin texture. Optimal hydration and quality ingredients will encourage healthy skin cell turnover which results in a smooth, supple complexion.


A great cream will restore your luminosity, leaving your complexion lustrous and radiant. A simple rule of thumb to remember is that hydrated skin is healthy, glowing skin.


Your moisturizer should protect your skin from dryness and environmental stressors. When we provide the skin with proper nutrients, it’s barrier function is better able to handle changes in climate and external extremes.


Buying a self care product should be a soul-nourishing experience. It’s important to feel good about the industries we support with out dollar from source to sale. Click here to learn about our organic certification, and the high standards we value holding ourselves to.


And last but definitely not least, your moisturizer should FEEL fantastic. It should SMELL great. It should be doing WONDERFUL things for you and your skin. You and your moisturizer should feel caught up in a love affair . Nothing less is good enough for your skin.

With the right moisturizer, you will see all of these results right away, and your skin will become more and more beautiful the longer you use it.

People are always asking me why I don’t make an eye cream, or a night cream, or a neck cream. How come we have only two creams? Our retailers say more creams would fill up their shelf space and be good for business- so why don’t we make more of them?

The fact is, there is no need for extra creams. Based on my 30 years experience as an esthetician, I don’t see the need for eye creams and night creams to properly look after your skin. For the most part, they are just marketing ploys. When you see through the hype, achieving beautiful skin becomes a lot simpler.

Eye Cream?

Why would you put a special cream on the thinner, more delicate skin under your eyes and then put a less-than-special cream on the rest of your face? Or, if a cream is not good enough to put on your more delicate skin, why would you use it anywhere on your face?

Of course, the skin under your eyes needs a really good moisturizer that has no harsh chemicals in it. But so does the rest of your face! All of your face will respond to loving care, and only the best is good enough for all of it.

That’s why I make creams that can be used on the thinnest, most delicate skin, such as under the eyes, and recommend it be used all over the face, neck and décolleté. A thin layer of one of our rich moisturizers will be sufficient for the majority of the skin, and adding a second layer to under eyes will provide the extra moisture this delicate skin is looking for.

Night Cream?

The same goes for night cream. You don’t need a different cream at night from the one that works for you in the daytime. The reason you may be seeing a different result from the cream you use at night is because your skin is protected from environmental stressors while you are in bed, and your body goes into healing mode while you are asleep. Your chemistry changes and your body, including your skin, restores itself. The results are caused by your body, not by your special night cream.

Less is More

The key is to find one good cream that really works for you and then use it, day and night, on your face, neck and décolleté. One good organic moisturizer will do it all.

You and your moisturizer should feel caught up in a love affair. Nothing less is good enough for your skin. – Gaelle

Seeing Is Believing

It’s easy to see if a cream is right for you. A quality moisturizer should show these results, right away, and they should keep on getting better with time:

  • fine lines reduce as your skin plumps up
  • your complexion takes on a luminous glow
  • your skin becomes smoother and more supple

If you are not getting these results, you need a different cream – not different creams for different parts of your face, or different times of day or night. 

The Best Organic Moisturizers

The best organic moisturizers are oil-based and free of alcohol.

One, Crème Supérieure, is for normal skin, the other, Ultra Sensitive Crème, is for especially sensitive skin.

Both of them are free of alcohol and suitable for day and night use, including on the sensitive areas under the eyes.

Their results speak for themselves!
