Why pH is the most impor tant aspect of good skin health.

here’s what happens when the skin is out of balanCe: Skin sensitizes (including to the sun) and becomes irritated. Skin becomes dehydrated as it’s unable to retain water. Fine lines and wrinkles form as a result of deficient sebum secretion. Skin becomes rough, nutrients can’t be absorbed. Skin is more prone to infection and acne. Skin is prone to allergies from lack of keratin thickness. Lack of elasticity, from skin being “soaked” in sebum (sensitivity from excessive sebum).

SOPHYTO ® skincare is formulated to a mildly acidic pH of 4.6-5, which perfectly optimizes the skin’s natural nourishing, hydrating and protective functions


apparently, we make seriously innovative organic skincare. 2012 winner of best innovation in organic skincare at the natural and organic awards, uk

s well as layering on antioxidants in serums and creams, we can also boost our skin’s natural protective capacity by eating antioxidant-rich foods. think bright colors - liberal amounts of veggies and moderate amounts of fruit (to avoid too much fructose sugar). some of the most potent antioxidants can be found in teas (green and black), chlorella and spirulina, tomatoes, watermelons, mangoes, papayas, carrots, squashes, berries, pomegranates and dark chocolate!

f spending more than 15 minutes in the sun, it’s important to layer on a mineral sunscreen for non-toxic, broad-spectrum protection against burning uVb rays and aging uVa rays. the skin also has its own protective mechanisms we can support using natural topical ingredients:

numerous studies have shown that this oil offers the skin broad-spectrum protection against the damaging effects of both uVa and uVb rays. the spf of red raspberry seed oil has been found to be equal to that of titanium dioxide - as high as 28-50 in some cases (oomah et al, 2000). both mega Daily Moisturizer and omega ocotrienol super skin Concentrate tocotrienol contain raspberry seed oil.

studies tudies suggest this oil can boost the spf of sunscreen by 20 percent. both our omega Daily Moisturizer and tocotrienol super skin Concentrate contain pomegranate seed oil. this widely used ingredient contains a high content of cinnamic acid, which offers mild sun protection, approx spf6 (falconi, 1998) and can be used alone to prevent burning (hampton, 1997). [note: the use of these fruit oils on the skin is not equivalent to using a properly formulated spf product since many factors are involved in how a product works as a sunscreen, viscosity and absorption rate.]

Using our Anti-Aging Antioxidant Serum will boost the power of your SPF products. Why? Only antioxidants protect against the DNA damage caused by UVA rays, which results in the fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation associated with aging. Before sun exposure, layer on the highly concentrated blend of green tea, white tea, olive leaf and grape extract that makes up our Anti Aging Antioxidant Serum to guarantee UVA protection and keep your skin looking its youthful best.

“Perfect booster for city skin.” Vogue UK


Native to the British Isles, elderberries are a familiar late summer sight in British hedgerows. They’re easy to spot, with their distinctive purple-black fruit hanging from the heavily laden branches. Folklore tells that lightening never strikes elder trees, so they’re safe to stand under during a storm. SKIN BENEFITS Herbalists often call the elder tree the “cosmetic” tree as almost all arts of the tree will boost the complexion,such as the removal of freckles and maintaining and softening the skin. The fruit also has astringent and firming properties. HEALTH BENEFITS Elderberries have been eaten for thousands of years - and rightly so. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, as well as vitamins A & B. Taking a daily dose of elderberry tincture is also extremely effective for boosting the immune system against seasonal flu, colds and allergies. We use British-grown organic elderberry in Sophyto ® pH-Optimizing restorative Toner.


Did you know the apple is a member of the rose family? Archeologists have discovered that humans have been enjoying apples since at least 6500 B.C. The apple tree is believed to have originated on land somewhere between the Caspian and the Black Sea. SKIN BENEFITS Sophyto uses a signature fresh whole extract of organic apples, sourced in the UK. This ensures nutrients from the skin and flesh of the fruit are retained. Contains isoflavonoids (anti-inflammatory), phytosterols (renowned for regenerative properties) and vitamin E derivatives. Tests show that apple extract imparts relief to sensitive skin and helps to significantly reduce wrinkles. HEALTH BENEFTIS Apples are generally easy on digestion; they contain malic and tartaric acids that inhibit fermentation in the intestines and pectin which is a soluble fiber that encourages the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. WE USE BRITISH-GROWN ORGANIC APPLES IN THE SOPHYTO 速 NATURAl GlYCOlIC FOAMING ClEANSER AND THE SOPHYTO 速 ANTI AGING ANTIOxIDANT SERUM.


sophY toŽ botanical ex tracts are grown and manufactured on a 200-acre farm in herefordshire, england, which has twice won the silver lapwing, the uk’s leading environmental and farming award. we suppor t organizations, such as iuCn - the international union for Conser vation of nature, in 2008, the farm made its initial application and is progressing the accreditation process to become compliant with the Convention on biological biodiversity. besides many objectives with the land, this accreditation also seeks to ensure sustainability and compliance with the Convention on international trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora (Cites). the environmental policy at Castle farm is based on the principle of enhancing bio-diversity across the whole farm, and our energy eff iciency policy focuses on conser ving resources as much

as possible so that waste and pollution are kept to a minimum. our formulas are all completely bio-degradable, ensuring they have no long-term impact on the environment. waste water is disposed of via a reed bed, which incorporates two settling ponds, a reed bed and a willow bed the disposal has been registered under the Groundwater regulations. waste botanicals are added to a compost system that breaks down the material into friable fer tiliser. this enables it to be spread onto the farmland as par t of the organic farming system. all material is composted to meet bsi pas 100 specif ications – a cer tif ication for quality assured compost, which can be used to improve soil quality, as top dressing, or to be blended with soils for use in agriculture or restoration projects.


Rubus idaeus Extracted from organically grown leaves, it acts as an astringent on irritated skin by tightening the top layers of skin, relieving irritation and improving tissue firmness.

Taraxacum officinalis It has been traditionally used as a potent purifying herb and is rich in iron and other minerals. Dandelion has also been used historically for its skin cleansing properties. Thought of as a purifier in toxic conditions, especially with heat.

Rosa damascena Extracted from organically grown roses, its tonic and soothing qualities are helpful to combat inflammation and its constricting action on the capillaries is a valuable treatment for broken thread veins.
