Surf+Slope’s 8+ Benefits Explained

How it’s Results-Driven: Claims + Reasoning 

 

Wait, Surf+Slope is two products that give your skin the benefits of eight different skincare products?

You’re thinking - and maybe a bit skeptical - how is this true?

Cause multitasking skincare products that work sound too good to be true... 

Yet, Surf+Slope is designed for you - surfers, skiers, and snowboarders - who want a minimalist skincare routine with real results. 

Each ingredient was carefully and thoughtfully selected for the incredible nutrients each plant ingredient contains and their proven benefits for skin health. Both history and modern science show these native plants are powerhouses for your skin.

Plus, over 92% are locally grown in North America, and plant ingredients that are endangered, or do harm to our environment - there are a few ways! - before getting to a bottle are excluded. 

It was a process of thoroughly researching each plant-powered ingredient to determine which skin issues, skin types, and specific skin concerns they're best for. And balancing it all out so it's truly multitasking.

The focus was to make sure the power plant oils weren't all geared toward one skin concern, like say dry skin. Instead which ones and in what unique combination can they work great for oily skin, dry skin, and brightening one's complexion? Also which plant actives and ingredients are gentle yet powerful? Do any have benefits that help cleanse or are antimicrobial for acne-prone skin?

This is how Surf+Slope's Revitalizing Serum And Nourishing Moisturizer were born. 

The plant ingredients in Surf+Slope are multi-targeting to give you a truly rejuvenating 8-in-1 multitasking skincare set. The perfect powerful blend of plant nutrients for healthy skin and an easy skincare routine. A one-of-a-kind all-in-one skincare duo! 

The 8 Skin Benefits Explained

Surf+Slope gives your skin eight benefits due to its unique combination of power plant ingredients. These ingredients are known to provide the following eight benefits for your skin. 

The Power Plant Ingredients:

  1. Moisturize
  2. Hydrate
  3. Repair
  4. Protect
  5. Soothe
  6. Brighten

In skin care, the eight terms above are known to help with the skin concerns of:

  1. Dryness

Minimalist skincare that maximizes results. 

8 Benefits to Replace Multiple Skincare Solutions

It’s logical how one could easily buy over eight skincare products to address all the skincare concerns above. 

Yet Surf+Slope’s ingredients contain the nutrients to help target these multiple skin concerns and ultimately the eight core benefits above. 

Two bottles with ingredients known to help benefit your skin - to moisturize, hydrate, repair, protect, soothe, brighten, lift, and clarify - means that what’s in Surf+Slope gives your skin the benefits of over eight different kinds of facial products. 

Not BS’ing you here. See the products below that it can replace as the formulas’ ingredients have all of those good nutrients that’d be in the solo products beow!

Replaces 8+ Products:

    1. General + Targeted Anti-Aging Moisturizers + Serums
    2. Hydrating Mists + Serums
    3. Renewing Toners
    4. Soothing After Sun + Calming Skin Products
    5. Lifting Eye Creams
    6. Protecting + Repairing Skin Barrier Balms & Lotions
    7. Brightening Antioxidant Serums
    8. Clarifying + Balancing Skin Tone Formulas
    9. Many more

Plus, it can double as a nourishing lip balm, cuticle oil, hand cream, closed wound repair, body moisturizer, or any part of your body that needs to be revitalized!

Its ingredients are pretty incredible and research backs up their properties and skin benefits.

If I were your average skincare company, I’d be likely to take this all-in-one duo and rename each one any of the below... Cause more products for different skincare concerns leads to more sales… 

But Nation Botanics doesn't do that.

10+ Different Products It Could Be Named

  1. Anti-Aging Toning & Firming Moisturizer
  2. Natural Retinol & BetaCarotene Fine Lines Fighter Cream 
  3. Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Serum
  4. Healthy Skin Renewing Probiotic Toner
  5. Refreshing & Deeply Hydrating Facial Mist
  6. UV & Bluelight Repair & Protection Serum 
  7. Antioxidant Powerhouse Serum 
  8. Strengthen & Protect Skin Barrier Moisturizer
  9. Brightening Skin Elixir
  10. Clarifying & Balancing Lightweight Moisturizer
  11. Collagen Boosting Pure Radiance Moisturizer
  12. Soothing & Nourishing Anti-inflammatory Cream
  13. Deeply Rich Velvety Moisturizer
  14. Could go on and on with more… 

You’re probably wondering how the hell does it do this all.

Well, that’s because our formula is chock full of active plant ingredients that are loaded with nutrients that have shown these benefits. They were purposefully selected and incorporated into the formulas for their multitasking abilities and complementary properties to other ingredients. 

These native power plant ingredients contain a powerhouse of skin nutrients. Yes, really. 

Skin Nutrients Surf+Slope’s Ingredients Contain:

  1. Antioxidants
  2. Beta Carotene > Vitamin A (aka natural retinol)
  3. Vitamin E (ALL five forms - aka Alpha-Beta-Gamma-Delta Tocopherols and Tocotrienols!)
  4. Vitamin C
  5. Hyaluronic Acid
  6. Omega 3
  7. Omega 6
  8. Omega 9s
  9. Plus Fatty Acids
    1. Palmitic Acid
    2. Stearic Acid
    3. Gadoleic Acid
    4. Erucic Acid
    5. Brassic Acid
    6. Behenic Acid
  10. Adaptogens
  11. Probiotics
  12. Squalene
  13. Phytosterols
  14. Lupeol

You’re likely not a skin nutrient nerd so have no idea what the above mean when it comes to your skin. 

Just know, that you’re feeding your skin prime nutrients. 

Similar to when you load your fruit smoothie with all the vitamins and fixings from say protein powder, collagen, power greens, chlorophyll, flax seeds, bee pollen, you name it! It’s kinda like a mega-multivitamin protein smoothie but for your face ;)

For example, antioxidants can help to protect your skin cells from damage which is commonly caused by the sun or UV rays. Feeding your skin antioxidants will help improve its resilience from the sun’s rays. 

Or take Beta-Carotene that converts into Vitamin A, commonly known as retinol. You’re likely familiar with retinol as it’s been widely researched and proven to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help acne-prone skin. But it’s known to be notoriously irritating and harsh on the skin, plus is commonly synthetic or animal-derived. Average retinols tend to create more skin freakouts, especially on sensitive skin, as everyone’s skin reacts differently to retinols.

That’s why Surf+Slope uses one of the highest sources of beta-carotenes (from Buriti pictured below!) so it’ll convert to Vitamin A on your skin and be a pure plant-powered natural and gentle retinol!

Buriti

The two formulas use pure plant power from a total of 27 ingredients. 

Our Badass Botanical Natural Ingredients:

  1. Hazelnut Seed Oil 
  2. Black Raspberry Seed Oil
  3. Meadowfoam Seed Oil
  4. Cranberry Seed Oil
  5. Pracaxi Seed Oil
  6. Buriti Oil
  7. Lupine Shell Extract 
  8. Elderberry Fruit Extract
  9. Vitamin E - from Rapeseed and Sunflower
  10. Aloe Vera Leaf Juice
  11. Yarrow Hydrosol
  12. Roseroot Stonecrop Extract
  13. California Poppy Extract
  14. Fireweed Extract
  15. Black Spruce Extract
  16. Leuconostoc - Radish Root Ferment
  17. Aspen Bark Extract 
  18. Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid - from Corn
  19. Balsam Poplar Essential Oil
  20. Ponderosa Pine Essential Oil
  21. Tara Gum - from Caesalpinia Spinosa Tree
  22. Ethanol - from Corn
  23. Sodium Phytate - from Corn + Rice
  24. Glycerin - from Rapeseed
  25. Citric Acid - from Corn and Beets
  26. Sodium Sunflowerseedate - from Sunflower
  27. Sunflower Seed Oil

 

Over 92% of the ingredients in the Surf+Slope formula are grown by farmers in North America. 

And 25 of these 27 ingredients are from plants growing wild in North America. 

Plus, 21 of these ingredients are from plants that are native to North America. 

Wait, what’s the difference between native and growing wild here? 

Native refers to the plant’s origins originating from a specific area, where those that grow wild include native plants but also those that were introduced centuries ago and are naturalized.  

Yes, 6 plants (Aloe Vera, White Lupine, Hazelnut, Buriti, Rapeseed, Radish Root) are not native to North America but the majority have been naturalized. Meaning they are native now. 

This happens as they were introduced over 4000 years ago - like Aloe Vera - and our environment is their natural habitat. So they’re growing and thriving here now!

An Easy Skincare Routine Made Easier With 8+ Benefits

When you've got a multitasking product it's easy to have a minimalist skincare routine.

All you have to do is:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Apply your multitasking powerhouse product(s) of choice - like Surf+Slope
  3. Use sunscreen.

Three easy steps. Yeess please!

You can still have an easy skincare routine if you don't have multitasking skincare products. Just be sure to feed your skin products with both hydration and moisture after you wash your face. Learn more about how to do that on a budget here.

And if you wanna get fancy, use a super-gentle product for physical exfoliation once a week. Gentle is key. Some physical exfoliation ingredients can be rough on your skin and a few types of beads are not the best for the environment. So opt for an exfoliating product with jojoba beads (which are gentler) and all-natural.

That's all you need for an effective and easy skincare routine. But know consistency is key.

Make life easier with multitasking skincare created for skin health.

Think of your skincare routine like you're feeding your skin a multi-vitamin. 

You may not be a skincare person, but you care about your overall skin health.

So why not opt for the multitasking and plant power all-in-one skincare? 

And that’s why Surf+Slope was made... To be just that but also to help the specific needs of your surf and slope skin. Learn more about Surf+Slope here.
