Turn Back Time with Nordic Beauty’s Organic Skincare

One thing women have been trying to do since the beginning is turn back time. For centuries, women have tried several beauty regimens and rituals in the battle against aging, with minimal luck – but here is one beauty label that is sure to make you feel like you’ve frozen time, without leaving you with a frozen face, and a body full of toxins. Nordic Beauty is a 100% natural and organic skin care line that will deem other anti-aging products obsolete, thanks to its special ingredient, Marine Collagen Peptide.

These products use nature’s beauty secrets to keep you looking young and beautiful, with healthy, moisturized skin. The Marine Collagen Peptide used in the Nordic Beauty line comes from wild caught Norwegian Cod skin, from the cold waters of Northern Norway’s deep seas. The brand uses Cod Fish Collagen because it contains much larger amounts of amino acids, glycine and proline than other proteins. These tiny peptides penetrate deep within your skin to help form new tissue cells, resulting in beautiful and youthful looking skin that is younger, softer and more radiant, with optimal results after 33 days of use. Other natural ingredients include Lingonberry Seed Extract, Sweet Iris Stem Cell, Edelweiss Extract, as well as organic essential oils including Frankincense Essential Oil, Sunflower Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil.  The products are gentle and non-irritating, which is perfect for those with sensitive skin. What more could you ask for?

Being able to read the ingredients of the Nordic Beauty products is a real treat that we don’t often get when it comes to what we put on our face. Natural ingredients are very important to Nordic Beauty CEO Mette Risdal, “I hope to elevate consumer awareness of the dangers inherent in the many synthetic ingredients found in so many beauty products today,” says Risdal. “It isn’t worth the short-term gain if a product degrades your appearance or the health of your skin a few years down the line. Our Nordic Beauty products not only make you look good; they are good for you, promoting skin that glows with health and resiliency.”

You can also feel good about supporting Nordic Beauty, as they give 10% of their profits to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and Susan G. Komen Foundation, as noted by the pink bow and message stated directly on the packaging. By purchasing Nordic Beauty products, you are not only helping yourself, but other women as well!
