The team behind NeoNaturelle have a powerful message for the beauty industry – they are ‘pro-aging’ – and talk of anti-aging is not welcome in their world. Founders Nila & Marina Cook, believe that beauty has no expiration date. “Your skin tells the story of your life and we want to enhance it, not erase it. Our pro-aging philosophy is more than skin-deep, every product is carefully formulated to maintain long-term results over quick “wrinkle-busting” fixes. Post-menopause life brings a whole other host of concerns: decreased natural oil production, slower natural cell turnover, reduced elasticity, and hormonal breakouts. This is to say, the appearance of thin, sagging, and dull skin. Our science-forward Lab Line was created to target these issues specifically, knowing them from personal experience and finding few options that were actually effective without being saturated in health-disrupting chemicals. Your skin has always worked hard to protect you as your first line of defence. After many years of faithful service, we are committed to helping you pamper, love, and shield it.”NeoNaturelle, the contour concierge, jade massie, helen siwak, organic, vegan, proaging, beauty

NeoNaturelle is an all-natural vegan product line thoughtfully formulated to respect your natural hormone balance without endocrine-disrupting properties. Expertly formulated, the line has no texture adjusters, no colourants, and no fillers. Just a beautifully simplified approach to skincare – you do not need a cabinet full of sprays, drops, and elixirs – NeoNaturelle has prioritized multi-functional ingredients that address a multitude of concerns in one bottle.
