Origins skin care

Origins Natural Resources was introduced by The Estée Lauder Companies in 1990 as the first major brand to address total well-being with a complete collection of unconventional products that go beyond the parameters of traditional personal care.

Origins contemporary products combine time-tested, natural ingredients including plant extracts, minerals, and earth and sea substances from around the world with the most advanced scientific research.

Origins uses no added color or fragrances in its skin care or body care products and is committed to the preservation of the earth, animals and the environment. The result is a full-range of products designed to appeal to the whole family, including Skin Care, Color, Bath and Body, Hair Care, Sensory Therapy® products and many unique accessories.

The core values of Origins are universal and not specific to gender, age, economic status or culture. The general appeal of this brand lies in its inherent qualities: healthy, experiential and multi-sensory, while also fun, approachable and comfortable. Wherever Origins is sold, it is supported by information-filled packaging and booklets and knowledgeable sales staff known as Guides. Origins Guides encourage customers to have confidence in their own judgment and help them make their own decisions. The Origins commitment is to bring each customer a sense of harmony, health and happiness. Inside and out.

Some Origins favorites include: A Perfect World ™ White tea skin guardian, A Perfect World ™ Body, Peace of Mind® On-the-spot relief, Salt Rub™ Smoothing body scrub, Ginger Body Scrub Smoothing body buffer, Ginger Souffle™ Whipped body cream, Pomegranate Polish™ Luscious body buffer, Never a Dull Moment™ Skin-brightening face polisher, Grin from Year to Year™ Brightening face firmer, Night-A-Mins® Mineral-Enriched moisture cream/lotion, Have a Nice Day™ Super-charged moisture cream/lotion SPF 15, Eye Doctor® Moisture care for skin around eyes, Stay Tuned™ Balancing face makeup, Ginger Essence Sensuous skin scent, Clear Head® Mint Shampoo, and Fringe Benefits® Lash-loving mascara.
