How Guarana Ended Up In Our Skincare

Guarana. It’s in almost any energy drink. In fact, 70% of the world’s guarana berries are used in the formulation of energy drinks. One of the main ingredients in leading nutrition supplements, from natural, weight-loss pills to organic anti-inflammatories.

And it's in our Multi-Purpose Moisturizer, Age Defense Eye Cream, and Super Fresh Face Scrub.

Energy drinks. Supplements. Our Skin-First™ products. How did this Amazonian berry make it into our products?



Guarana is loaded with some of the most powerful combinations of antioxidants in the world. It has similar health benefits to green tea, and some studies have even shown that guarana fights cancer cells and reduces the risk of heart disease. Amazing, right?

But for our skincare, we look to guarana for it's potent, anti-aging properties.

The antioxidants protect skin from sun damage and free radicals, which create fine lines and eventually turn into full-blown wrinkles. It also fights off inflammation, which is to blame for your skin looking tired and colorless by the end of the day.


Move over coffee beans, because guarana is the strongest natural source of caffeine on the planet. One guarana berry has twice as much caffeine as a coffee bean.

The caffeine acts as a stimulant, giving you an almost immediate (but temporary) all-natural face lift. That’s why when you use products packed with the right kind of ingredients - like ours - you’ll notice your skin looks brighter, fuller and healthier.

While the effects do fade throughout the day, using our skincare products consistently will lead to long-lasting effects. You’ll look younger, and your skin will retain moisture longer. People will stop asking you if you’re getting enough sleep.

Our Not-So-Secret Ingredient

We can’t say we're the first ones to use it, but guarana was included in our skincare line with a very clear purpose. And if you're looking for a way to have your skin look alive every day, grab you some guarana in your routine.

It adds to the “super fresh” feeling of our Super Fresh Face Scrub.

It makes our Multi-Purpose Moisturizer the ultimate finishing move for your morning routine.

It helps our Age Defense Eye Cream dramatically reduce the appearance, and eventually the presence, of under eye bags.
