Help and Support
In the tradition of nourishing the body from within, Nature's Sunshine is proud to announce the formulation of Botanical Benefits, natural skin care products designed to protect the body from within and without.
Unique to Nature's Sunshine
"We are so excited about Botanical Benefits," said Kristine Hughes, NSP President and CEO. "We've spent more than a year developing and testing skin care formulas that are unique to Nature's Sunshine. It's so important to take care of your skin, and these are new, innovative products that are both healthy and effective."
The ingredients in Botanical Benefits include names you are familiar with--hyssop, aloe vera, calendula, jojoba, evening primrose, rosemary, lavender and chamomile. The herbal/botanical/fruit-based ingredients also include leading-edge scientific skin care ingredients like antioxidants, vitamins, humectants and UV protection.
Bringing Your Skin to Maximum Health
"The Botanical Benefits line was designed to bring your skin a maximum healthy look, and to maintain that look," said Dr. Alvin Segelman, NSP's Vice President of Health Sciences. "These are exciting new products with unique ingredient combinations that make them different from any other products on the market."
Bridging Internal and External Health
"People today are taking better care of themselves," said Beth Fitz Gibbon, NSP Group Director, Business Development. "We wanted to use the resources at Nature's Sunshine to create a skin care line that would bridge internal and external health care. Botanical Benefits is an extension of our body systems products. The state of your skin is a reflection of the state of your health.
"When your skin is at its best, it's supple, smooth and unblemished. To achieve this, a good, simple, daily treatment program is vital," Fitz Gibbon said.
The Basics of Skin Care
Your face takes the brunt of harsh weather--sun, wind and hot and cold temperatures. It's more exposed than the rest of your body. As a result, the skin on your face may become dry, look lifeless and feel rough.
A Simple Three-Step Process
The answer to renewed, smooth and healthy-looking skin is good care. Botanical Benefits' simple routine, done consistently to support your skin's appearance, will help you achieve purity and retain radiance and resilience.
The Botanical Benefits skin care program offers you a three-step process that is simple, honest and easy to use.
Botanical Benefits Cleanser is silky and gentle, and lathers up lightly. This light lather feels wonderful on your skin and rinses away easily with water. Choose the Normal/Dry or Combination/Oily formulation.
Botanical Benefits Toner is refreshing, cleansing and gentle. Its cool, clear properties restore your skin's normal pH, help remove dead skin cells and refresh and purify your skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines. The toner also prepares your skin to receive Botanical Benefits' treatments and Moisturiser.
Moisturizing is essential for every skin type. Botanical Benefits Moisturiser will help protect your skin from the effects of continual exposure to heat, cold, sun, wind and pollutants. It won't clog pores, and it provides SPF 15 protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays--protection that can reduce premature wrinkling and aging caused by sun damage.
Internal Skin Care
Healthy skin reflects inner health. Internal skin care begins with proper nutrition, and NSP has formulated Botanical Benefits HSN Complex herbal supplement. It provides targeted nutrients to help keep skin, hair and nails healthy.
Rich in silica, HSN Complex also contains a powerful new antioxidant from rhodedendron root, along with herbs known for their cleansing and stimulating properties.
Botanical Benefits products are tested by dermatologists, and are completely free of added fragrances and colors. They have never been tested on animals.
Products in Development
Later in 1997, the Botanical Benefits line will include Skin Renewal Complex ( a hydroxy treatment), Eye Firming Creme, shampoos and conditioners.
These two products have arrived October 1997 and described here:
SKIN RENEWAL COMPLEX:
This light, silky gel promotes exfoliation--the removal of dead cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin. Exfoliation is an important process that allows newer, healthier skin cells underneath the surface to take their place "on top." There are a number of products that exfoliate, but many of these contain granular exfoliators that tear and damage skin.
Nature's Sunshine's Skin Renewal Complex contains no granular exfoliators. It works by using natural alpha and beta hydroxy acids that have been clinically proven to help improve skin's firmness, texture, softness and suppleness. This helps visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps moisturize the skin. Alpha hydroxy acids jump-start the exfoliation and renewal process. However, over time skin can adjust to these acids so they no longer provide the desired exfoliating action. Fortunately, this formula includes different sources of beta hydroxy acids that will help keep the rate of exfoliation and skin renewal consistent and less likely to irritate the skin.
Botanical Benefits products feature natural combinations of herbs and phytonutrients. Skin Renewal Complex is no exception. It contains lactic acid as the primary source of alpha hydroxy acid, as well as beneficial extracts from honey, grape, bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange, lemon, meadowsweet, kiwi, hyssop, calendula, chamomile and salicylic acid. Many of these fruit and sugar extracts are excellent sources of alpha hydroxy acids. Meadowsweet extract and salicylic acid are prime sources of beta hydroxy acids.

Many people notice the first outward signs of aging in the delicate area of skin just under the eyes. It has few oil-producing glands to keep it supple and protect it from harsh environments. Eye Firming Creme is a rich, moisturizing creme that brings nutrients and protection to the delicate layers of skin around the eyes.
Formulated with powerful antioxidants and a large array of nurturing herbs, this special creme is packed with natural, soothing and protective ingredients: castor oil, allantoin, hyssop, evening primrose, rosemary, calendula, chamomile, linden, cornflower, cucumber, grapefruit, lemon, rose, aloe, and natural sources of vitamins A, C and E. It can be worn under makeup and used both morning and night. Apply after using Skin Renewal Complex and before applying Botanical Benefits Moisturiser.
Stock# 3506-2 0.5 oz.
To educate yourself on Botanical Benefits products, NSP has produced a customer/distributor brochure (including a comprehensive ingredient glossary and dictionary of skin care terminology), video, Herbal Hour packet, product samples and customer pamphlet to educate you about these new products.
Skin care is a necessity, not a luxury. Just as concerns about your heart, liver or kidneys can affect your entire body, skin appearance can affect your total well-being. The skin is a body system that needs the protection and nourishment that Botanical Benefits products can supply.
