Indigena is located on the eastern edge of North America with over 29,000km of rugged coastline, sweeping barrens and lush boreal forests. With this backdrop and pantry cupboard from nature we formulate and create naturally derived products. Here is a list of some of our botanicals we use. 


BAKEAPPLE/CLOUDBERRY

Vitamin C reduces the appearance of brown spots and other types of sun damage; helps boost healthy collagen production, reduces inflammation and irritation, fade post breakout red marks by improving skin's natural healing response and increase the effectiveness of sunscreen and boosts your skins defense against UV exposure. 

BLUEBERRIES

Blueberries contain phytochemicals and antioxidants to neutralize free radicals, which in turn make the skin look softer and younger. Due to the vitamins found in blueberries, they also smooth the skin, prevent fine lines and wrinkles, eliminate scars, increase elasticity, fight against blemishes and acne, balance levels of oil in the skin, and help even out skin tone. 

LABRADOR TEA

Labrador Tea is three times as potent as Vitamin C and E. This plant extract has excellent calming properties, reduces redness and can help clear acne, eczema and psoriasis. It is rich in skin repairing and anti-inflammatory ursolic acid, which aids skin in keeping its natural elasticity and promotes collagen production. In addition it prevents water loss in skin, causing skin to remain hydrated and is one of natures best anti aging ingredients.

Wild Rose is one of the best Ingredients found in skincare. It helps you achieve a fresh and youthful glow.

SEAWEED

Both seaweed and human blood plasma have nearly the same mineral levels, making algae and kelp among the most bioavailable skincare ingredients. When you smooth kelp and algae extracts on your skin, the cells readily absorb their high concentration of magnesium, calcium and potassium to help boost collagen synthesis and prevent wrinkles. As an added bonus these seaweed powerhouses contain trace elements such as zinc, iodine and copper which help combat chronically dry skin and increase elasticity 

MYRICA GALE
