Snowberry was founded in New Zealand in 2007 by Soraya Hendesi, who considers lack of hydration to be one of the greatest enemies of radiant skin. When skin tissues are starved for moisture, they not only look dull and feel unpleasant, but the very function of cells begins to suffer. The ingredients in Snowberry Moisturizers use a wide range of effective botanical extracts and oils to moisturize skin, using sources from around the world, as well as New Zealand. No single element is considered to be a "magic" ingredient, but their combination in these formulas provides the moisturizing care that skin requires. Ms Hendesi also eschews the use of parabens, artificial colors and scents and petrochemicals to keep the formulas of Snowberry Moisturizers pure and natural.
In a skin care program, moisturizing is only one stage, but an extremely important one. The Snowberry Moisturizers use this step as an opportunity to provide the skin with emollients, plus additional ingredients to help skin reach its greatest potential.
With a formula rich in exotic, effective botanical extracts and other natural-source ingredients, Snowberry Nourishing Day Lite Cream can be applied in the morning to provide day-long benefits to the skin. Luscious emollients from South America include cupuaucu butter, pressed from the seeds of a cousin of the cacao tree, and pejaleaye extract, plus rich meadowfoam extract and sunflower seed oil moisturize the skin. A complex of plant enzymes and proteins promote skin growth and strength, plus antioxidants are provided by such diverse sources as white peat extract, Rewarewa honey, carana extract and lingonberry.
To reduce the signs of skin discoloration during moisturization, Snowberry Bright Defence Day Cream No 3 offers the extract of harakeke (a flax-like plant native to New Zealand) along with several tone-evening compounds. The cream also includes such effective emollients as sunflower seed oil, shea butter and Argania spinosa kernel oil. This cream is the highest of three levels of skin-brightening strengths, including No 1 and a medium strength, No 2.
Inflammation and itchiness are often symptoms of dehydrated skin. These side-effects can be a problem, particularly at night. Snowberry Bright Defence Night Cream combines emollients, botanical extracts to sooth and repair skin, caprylic/capric triglyceride (derived from coconut oil) to prevent moisture loss and harakeke seed oil to even skin tone.
