The Power of Plants


Plants have been used for centuries for their medicinal, cosmetic and general well being benefits. More than 400 years ago, some Indian tribes of South America used the bark of the Cinchona tree to reduce fever. The bark is still used today to make Quinine, a drug used to treat malaria and other diseases. Another drug, called Digitalis is made from the dried leaves of the purple Foxglove plant, while the roots of the Mexican yam are used in producing cortisone, a drug useful in treating arthritis and a number of other ailments.

In the beauty arena we know the potential and the effectiveness of Green Tea, Vitamins C and E as antioxidants that neutralize the effects of skin damaging free radicals, the anti-aging benefits of Retinol and other propriety combinations of plants and herbs.

Plantogen® Plant Derived Spa Therapy, is concerned with the beauty and appearance of skin. We developed Plantogen® motivated by the belief in plants as effective ingredients in the improvement and maintenance of healthier, younger looking skin. Plantogen® combines the most advanced scientific knowledge with plant based technology.

A more healthy and youthful looking face and body is possible with proper care and management of our lives and bodies. Our products combine some of mother nature’s well known healers such as Manuka Honey, Chamomile, Jojoba, Aloe Vera, fruit oils, herbs, Vitamin A derived Retinol and the antioxidants Green Tea, Vitamin C and E. Many provide visible and tangible improvements in skin tone and appearance, while others provide a soothing aroma that can assist in a feeling of relaxation and mental well being.

It's more than skin deep...

Remember, the look and feel of the skin and body is a function not only of genetics but also of the environment. The environment we choose to be in effects our stress level, what we eat and drink, exposure to the sun, our habits and the products we use. So, in addition to using effective products like Plantogen®, we should consider our total lifestyle and how it may be contributing to how we look and feel.

Is it indulgence or is it a necessity?

Are you getting enough 'me' time — a period when you are focussed on only to yourself? Research into stress and its potential side effects indicates we all need to take time out and 'de-stress' our lives, not only to protect our physical looks, but also to protect our health and mental well being. Beauty and body therapies are no longer considered a 'treat' as they provide clients with specialized skin care and body maintenance in a stress relieving environment. A health and well being necessity. It is after all, more than skin deep.

Why water?

Comprising 75% of our bodies, water is the main source of energy transport for every cell of the body. It gives us the power to live. Water facilitates energizing of skin nerve endings so that they become more responsive thereby enhancing the skin's vitality. Water or moisture is an integral part of our bodies and good skin care. All our products start with a scientific based formula and include purified New Zealand water, various plant extracts, vitamins and other essential ingredients. We recommend drinking lots of water for overall health and improved skin function and to use Plantogen® plant derived spa therapy for healthier, younger looking skin.

Plantogen plant derived spa therapy combines pure plant extracts with scientific know how. Plant energy is powerful. The essence of health and beauty comes from within. We can make ourselves feel and look better by taking care of our bodies. Nurture yourself, relieve stress, respect your body and soul. Stay calm, be happy, drink lots of water. Our philosophy to skincare is this simple.
