Botanical Skin Care From Trilogy
Friday, June 25th 2004
If you're interested in skin care there's every chance that you'll know some of the benefits of rosehip seed oil. You may also have heard of the New Zealand company Trilogy botanical skin care, whose products, based on the healing and skin repairing qualities of rosehip oil, have become favourites with women seeking an effective alternative to synthetic skin care brands.
According to Sarah Gibbs and Catherine Wells, the sisters behind the Trilogy botanical skin care company, "New Zealand women take their time to read the labels on their cosmetics and skin care products, and are increasingly demanding natural skin care solutions with ingredients that work in harmony with the normal function of the skin."
Sarah has been extracting natural products for export to international cosmetic markets since 1998. One of those products is rosehip oil, which she extracts in Wellington, using a solvent free process, from the seeds of certified organic wild grown rosehips from South Africa.
Rosehip oil is recognised by dermatologists and health professionals for its ability to help reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, pigmentation and visible signs of sun damage and ageing.
Two years ago Sarah teamed up with her sister, Catherine Wells a former beauty editor with an interest in natural cosmetics, to develop Trilogy botanical skin care products.
"We based the name around the triad of simplicity, purity and vitality. Straight up and simple skin care, from nature's purest sources, delivering healthy skin and vitality," says Catherine.
From the moment they started, Catherine and Sarah committed to using only 100% pure plant active ingredients. The ingredients they used reflected their desire for skin care which would help rejuvenate and repair the skin, prevent the premature signs of ageing and assist women to achieve optimum skin health.
Just over a year since its launch, Trilogy is being sold in over 650 stores in New Zealand and Australia with a growing demand and a loyal customer base. The sisters are launching the products in the UK in April. "Our refusal to compromise on quality skin care solutions has really paid off," says Sarah.
No synthetic fillers or mineral oils are used in the Trilogy range and even the emulsifiers that act as carriers for the botanical ingredients, are derived from plants.
Artificial colours and fragrances, sulphates, detergents, petrochemicals and animal derived products, these are all banned from the Trilogy range and you can be sure New Zealand women won't see any of them on the labels of this skin care range. It includes cleansing cream and body bar, hydrating mist, vital repair (moisturising) cream, pure rosehip oil, purifying masque and Trilogy promise more unique botanical skin care products in the pipeline.
