Plantæ Expands Organic Skincare Range

Plantæ Certified Organic Skincare has launched the latest product to join its luxurious range of organic skincare products.

The Certified Organic Eye Contour Cream is now available in New Zealand, following a product launch at the Sydney International Spa & Beauty Expo in Australia last week.

Company Founder and Product Formulator Carol Priest says the eye cream contains a scientific blend of healthy and effective ingredients.

“The Certified Organic Eye Contour Cream is rich with anti-wrinkle and anti-ageing critical extracts, such as Blackcurrant Leaf and Pine Bark complex. It also contains an abundance of antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamins crucial for skin regeneration, including arguably world’s first hypoallergenic lavender oil, which is one hundred percent true lavender, and is ideal for delicate skin due to its low allergen and low irritant composition,” says Priest.

“This is one of our most exciting products to date, and is perfect for the New Zealand climate – particularly at this time of year when skin irritations and puffy eyes are often prevalent.”

Janelle Priest, Carol Priest’s eldest daughter and International Sales & Marketing Manager for Plantæ, says the eye cream unveils an innovative accompaniment to the rapidly expanding brand.

“Plantæ is unique in that our entire range is certified organic by BioGio, New Zealand’s leading organic certifier, so people know our pure plant processes, clinically proven extracts and phyto bioactive ingredients, are of the highest quality and standards,” says Ms Priest.

“Due to this we have experienced rapid growth and demand for our products both in New Zealand and around the world, including Canada, United Kingdom, and most recently Australia, and the Eye Contour Cream is a much anticipated addition to our product range.”

The Certified Organic Eye Contour Cream With Anti-Wrinkle Blackcurrant Leaf & Pine Bark Complex for Normal to Dry Skin (RRP $40.90) is available now from selected health food stores and pharmacies nation-wide, and at
