Astara Skin Care
The Perfect Harmony of Science and Nature. It's a balance that has been found in Astara skincare since its launch in 1997. Founder, former model, and health enthusiast Sunny Griffin set out to fuse the two elements after relocating to Telluride, CO, where both the high altitude and the low humidity were causing her to age prematurely. Dissatisfied with many of the chemicals found in anti-aging skincare products, Sunny decided to put her knowledge of and passion for nutrition and heath to use, and Astara was born.
Astara skincare was created with the belief that the body has the ability to heal itself if given the proper nourishment, the optimal source of which comes from Nature. Just as skin benefits from a healthy, balanced diet, Astara products feed skin directly, giving it the best ingredients that Nature has to offer. And thanks to Astara's innovative approach to product formulation, those ingredients are preserved in their ideal and most potent state. Following the raw food diet, Astara utilizes lower temperature methods to sustain the natural enzyme levels and efficacy of botanical ingredients. The result is balanced, healthy skin that glows with youth.
Astara offers a full line of products to pamper skin from head to toe, all rich with potent antioxidants, raw organic plants, flower essences, and sea extracts. Every formulation seeks to restore skin to its optimal state, repairing existing damage and preventing premature aging. Not only do the products work synergistically when layered, but they work beautifully when combined to enhance their effects, such as removing the Violet Flame Enzyme Mask with the Daily Refining Scrub as a DIY mini-microdermabrasion, or giving any face or body moisturizer a boost with a pump of Aroma Nutrient Face and Body Oil.
A stand-out, one-step cleanser, the Botanical Cleansing Gele has a sumptuous texture and removes all eye and face makeup, leaving skin refreshed and balanced. Astara masks have quickly become customer favorites, and are constantly being featured in magazines and on beauty blogs. Inspired by Sunny's own jetsetting ways, Astara Kits are perfect for travel and for trying out a new skincare regimen.
Astara goes beyond natural skincare, working with cutting-edge Biogenic technology and Life Energy theories to continue to discover new ways to reap Nature's rewards. With reverence and respect for the environment, all formulations are free of animal products and never tested on animals, and are packaged in recyclable glass and plastic containers.
This perfect harmony of science and nature is reflected in balanced, beautiful skin. With its unique approach to skincare, Astara has mastered Beauty Science, as Nature Intended.
