For centuries, herbs and plants have been used for their incredibly potent skin regeneration properties to enhance our complexion and nourish the skin and hair from the outside in. Natura Siberica is the first Certified Organic beauty brand based on exclusive Wild Harvested flowers and natural ingredientssourced from the unspoilt continent of Siberia. The range turns traditional Siberian beauty secrets into a unique natural beauty range for face, bath, body and hair.
Natura Siberica draws ethically and responsibly from the natural Siberian resources, where the unique flora has stayed pristine despite extreme weather conditions. Wild Harvestedmeans that the natural ingredients used in Natura Sibericas products are gathered from their most natural conditions and environment. This ensures that these herbs and flowers are at their most resilient and purest form, and are therefore rich in nutrients and active components.
Wild harvesting is how our ancestors have gathered herbs, roots and flowers for thousands of years. The unique nature of the herbs and flowers which have grown uncultivated (in natural conditions of their growth, without fertilisers and other harmful substances) means that these plants have undergone a natural selection so only the most resilient, strongest plants that are rich in nutrients and active components, survive.
Wild harvesting has a number of requirements. Since ancient times, traditional healers and herbalists base their work on a specific calendar for gathering medicinal herbs. The time of which the herbs and flowers are gathered needs to be aligned with when the plant is rich in nutrients and vitamins. If gathered prematurely, these ingredients cant be used for therapeutic purposes. It is recommended that leaves are gathered every year, roots and root stock every 2-3 years, and some plants every 5-6 or more years from different spots in order for nature to accumulate lost reserves. Another important rule is that gathered plant stock should be used as soon as possible by drying or other processing methods.
The Natura Siberica range also contains 4 of 12 of the worlds natural adaptogens, which are a natural substance found in plants that have survived since the Ice Age, adapting to and thriving in the most severe weather conditions. Adaptogens increase the plants resistance against environmental stress, avoid damage and then in turn, offer us unique health and beauty benefits.
