Neutrogena Naturals Lip Balm Bionutrients:
- Vitamin E - Found in leafy greens, nuts and seeds
A pure bionutrient found in all plants, Vitamin E is nature’s primary antioxidant, providing a nourishing boost that soothes and protects your skin from free radicals.
Just like nutrients in your body are essential for health, naturally derived bionutrients can be used to promote healthy skin. Bionutrients are highly concentrated chemical compounds found in nature that are essential for healthy-looking skin.
The benefits of bionutrients have been shown to promote skin health and resilience by adding essential nutrients and supporting the skin’s own natural functions for replenishment and detoxification. They are the foundation of healthy skin, and the root of Neutrogena's approach to natural. Neutrogena scientists teamed up with a multi-disciplinary panel of experts to identify five classes of proven vital bionutrients found in nature:
- Vitamins & Minerals
- Amino Acids/Peptides
- Essential Fatty Acids (Omegas)
- Flavonoids/Polyphenols (Anti-Oxidants)
So, how do they work?
Bionutrients are clinically-proven to support your skin's functions:
- Vitamins and minerals keep skin functioning optimally
- Essential fatty acids replenish skin’s natural barrier
- Flavonoids and polyphenols act as anti-oxidants to knock down free radicals produced by pollution and solar radiation
- Sugars deeply and effectively deliver vital moisture
- Amino acids and peptides act as building blocks to help replenish skin
Pure, natural skincare with real results
Neutrogena has taken a revolutionary approach to natural skincare by working with a cross-disciplinary team of experts.
Introducing new Neutrogena Naturals, ecologically friendly skincare products that harness the power of naturally occurring bionutrients to deliver safe and effective results.
No harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, dyes or phthalates. Nutrogena has created pure, high-quality natural ingredients for balanced beauty from the skin care experts you trust.
When Neutrogena set out to develop Neutrogena Naturals, they developed a set of guiding principles to focus their decision making. They are linked to Neutrogena's values to create pure natural skincare with real results. Every product development and packaging decision came out of these key principles.
- Strive for Simplicity: Neutrogena wanted to create an efficacious product using only what was essential, nothing more, nothing less. Their products were formulated without harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, dyes, or phthalates. Just what is essential to work on your skin. Neutrogena leveraged natural plant derived ingredients where possible and the average of their line is 94% natural. The remaining ingredients were thoughtfully chosen from a comprehensive array of safe and pure ingredients to ensure safety and accessibility. For example, Neutrogena made the choice to use synthetic fragrances over natural fragrances because synthetic fragrances offer more hypoallergenic options which ensures that the final product will be safe and gentle. But they’re working everyday to improve their technologies to find even more natural ingredients they can use.
- Stretch: In the past, other natural products have not always delivered the results that you wanted. By merging the clinically proven expertise of Neutrogena with the best of what nature has to offer, Neutrogena is able to bring you the best of both worlds—natural skincare that really works. Neutrogena has always been committed to creating products that work, and now they’re bringing that commitment to natural skincare. And they’re working with their team of cross-disciplinary experts to find more efficacious bionutrient sources and ingredient combinations from across the globe to provide unique solutions from nature that really work.
- Build Transparency: Neutrogena wanted to have open and honest conversations with their consumers about what’s in their products and where each ingredient comes from. That’s why on the back of their products you won’t see just a list of ingredients. Neutrogena tells you exactly where the ingredient comes from, whether it’s a vegetable, coconut or bionutrient rich Willowbark. Neutrogena also calls out exactly what kind of packaging they use. Right now, they’re using up to 50% post consumer recycled content in their bottles and 100% recycled paper where possible. Neutrogena is doing their best to increase the amount of recycled content they use. In their plastic bottles, for example, Neutrogena found that 50% recycled content was the greatest they could currently go without sacrificing product aesthetics. Also, while all of their containers are recyclable, Neutrogena hasn’t yet figured out a perfect solution for a recyclable pump, so they’re doing the best they can, but see themselves on a path of continuous improvement, and will continually challenge themselves to improve on these numbers in the future.
- Do Good: Neutrogena wanted to act with the future in mind while giving back to their communities. That’s why they partnered with The Nature Conservancy, a global organization dedicated to protecting natural sources of clean water for people, plants and animals. Neutrogena wants to promote a better environment by supporting clean water and water conservation efforts that affect their local communities.
- Prove It: Neutrogena's team of cross-disciplinary experts from scientific and integrative health backgrounds has worked to find innovative, effective ways to balance dermatologic efficacy with natural insights. Neutrogena Naturals products are designed to work as well as traditional products with absolutely no tradeoffs.
- Thrive: At the end of the day, Neutrogena knows that if they do their best to live up to their guiding principles, not only will their consumers see the benefits of natural skincare, but they will do their best to try to limit their impact so that the planet can thrive along with the people on it. Neutrogena realizes that all decisions have environmental consequences on both people and planet and so they strive to think ahead, be mindful of their carbon footprint and continually try to be better than their previous best. That way, their consumers can feel good about knowing that they’re not only getting the best of sustainable and natural beauty, but they are also being mindful of the planet.
