There are no accidents in nature. Plants, herbs, and minerals have all been placed on this earth by God for very specific reasons. The amazing thing about all of this is that not only do all living things on this planet have a purpose, but they are also designed to work together for harmony and balance.
At CHARLÍS, we are in line with the harmony and balance witnessed in nature, and not just on the outside. We choose each ingredient for a reason, not just for their amazing individual attributes but also for how each one flows together to give you the very best for cleansing, toning, rejuvenating, and moisturizing your precious skin.
Keep reading to learn more about how synergy works and how CHARLÍS products are harnessing the power of synergy to create products that are above and beyond anything you have ever seen!
What Is Synergy?
The synergy found in nature is pretty exciting. But before we go there, let’s back up a little and look at what synergy is in general.
The basic definition of synergy is “an interaction or cooperation giving rise to a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts.” The word stems from the Greek synergos, meaning “working together.”
As you can imagine, synergy can happen in all kinds of arenas, not just in nature. For example, synergy can happen in business, in finance, and in technology (especially as it pertains to AI). It can also happen amongst individuals working in an organization or on an individual project. In the sciences, synergy is often studied in terms of all the bad things that can happen. For example, biological scientists study the synergy between viruses or other microorganisms and body to cause illness. In pharmacology, scientists study what could potentially happen when two or more drugs interact with each other.
Synergy for Healing in the Body
However, there is a flip side to synergy that is very positive. Synergy for healing and balance in the body, including for the skin, can also happen when two or more natural substances, such as plants, herbs, and minerals or even nutrients, protein groups, or individual phytonutrients work together to create a synergistic effect for more diverse and powerful healing.
And there is also another vital component at play. The synergetic effects of multiple plants and herbs interacting together also work in tandem with the mechanisms within your own body, especially the immune system. Again, when coupled in the right way, the result can be supercharged healing and rebalancing on all levels.
One Example: Turmeric & Black Pepper
A great example of natural synergy in action for healing can be found with turmeric and black pepper. Turmeric root is found mostly in Indian cuisine and contains the phytonutrient curcumin. Curcumin has been shown to be a powerful natural anti-inflammatory since it has the ability to inhibit the production of a number of pro-inflammatory molecular substances. Interestingly, many of these inflammatory mechanisms also play a role in cancer tumor growth as well.
There is no doubt that curcumin is a super-powered anti-inflammatory. However, its effect can be exponentially enhanced by the introduction of piperine, a phytonutrient found in black pepper. A study done at St. John’s Medical College in Bangalore, India, found that curcumin’s bioavailability in the body is raised 2000% when taken in conjunction with piperine. Interestingly, studies have also found that eating sources of fat in addition to black pepper can raise curcumin’s effectiveness even more. Is it no wonder that traditional Indian cuisine often contains turmeric, black pepper, and added ghee?
Of course, this is just one example amongst hundreds. Now let’s take a look at how some of the healing plants, roots, and herbs found in CHARLÍS products work together to create equally powerful benefits for your skin.
Charlís Skincare Products: Synergy at Work in Every Bottle!
The skin is an organ system of the body. As such, it can benefit from the synergetic effects of natural substances in basically the same way as other organs and parts can. The “team effort” of healing plants, herbs, and roots as well as extracts, when working together, can help to protect, rejuvenate, refresh, and rebuild your skin.
One thing you have to realize about all CHARLÍS luxury skincare products is that, unlike most natural skincare lines, we don’t just put one active natural ingredient in our products. We put several! This is pretty unheard of even amongst the best all-natural, ToxicFree® skin toners, lotions, and cleansers.
Why do we do this? The reason, plain and simple, is that we want to answer the call which many of you put out there when I was first starting CHARLÍS. My main goal is to produce skincare products that you can trust and that produce results. Not only are these products 100% ToxicFree®, but we have also used the wisdom of nature combined with the miracles of science to find key active ingredients which can work together beautifully to truly help your skin heal and revive.
Our products work to rejuvenate, refresh, and replenish your skin whether that skin is oily, dry, stressed out, or just plain tired. Like I mentioned above, in order to do this, we don’t just use one active ingredient. We use five or more key ingredients that have the ability to act together in just the right way so that the synergistic effects will be incredible for you.
The Synergistic Effects of CHARLÍS Daily Revitalizing Moisturizer
One example of a CHARLÍS product that uses the power of synergy to produce some pretty amazing results is our Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer. First of all, our Moisturizer contains stem cells extracted from bamboo plants (Bambusa Vulgaris). According to CHARLÍS Master Formulator Linda Chae, bamboo has a number of characteristics that can benefit any type of skin:
“First of all, bamboo is like the skin’s therapist. It soothes, it calms, it…tells the nerves in the skin ‘it’s okay, everything’s okay, just be calm.’ It [also] makes the skin resilient, strong, and tough. There is not a plant stronger than bamboo.”
The bamboo stem cells found in the CHARLÍS Daily Revitalizing Moisturizer also have the effect of reversing time at the skin’s cellular level:
“How many times would we just like to go back and do it all over again? [Bamboo stem cells] let your skin go back and do it all over again.”
Finally, bamboo stem cells help to “mother” your skin by stimulating collagen production. This produces deeper healing, including skin repair and wound healing.
But bamboo is not the only active ingredient in the Daily Revitalizing Moisturizer. It also contains argan oil (Argania spinosa), a powerful natural anti-inflammatory for the skin that also helps to strengthen through improving skin elasticity. In addition, the Daily Moisturizer contains alpha hydroxy acid in the form of grapefruit peel extract, which is also great for cell renewal. Organic perilla ocymoides seed oil is another key ingredient. Perilla is a member of the mint family that is omega 3 fatty acid rich and an excellent antioxidant source.
And that is still not all! There are over a dozen other ingredients in this one round Italian glass bottle, all designed to work together to protect, moisturize, and encourage the mechanisms of your own skin cells to retain moisture themselves for ongoing healing.
100% ToxicFree ® and Luxury to Boot: There is Nothing Like CHARLÍS!
Your skin renews itself approximately every 24 to 32 days. This means that when your whole body is stressed, inflamed, or just plain worn out, you are going to see it in your skin first. This is also why the overall signs of aging in general are often seen first on the skin under the neck and on the hands.
However, there is an upside to skin’s quick turnaround time. Once you start using CHARLÍS Daily Moisturizer (or any CHARLÍS product for that matter), you are going to start feeling and seeing the difference right away. I pretty much guarantee it since this is what hundreds of women and men—yes, CHARLÍS is for men too! —say about our products month after month.
Let nature’s miracles and the synergetic effect found in herbs and plants help your skin look and feel its best. Only CHARLÍS can deliver elegant, luxurious skincare with formulas specifically designed with synergy in mind.
