Ongaro Beauty™ is the first Skin, Body and Hair Care Product line to use (3) breakthrough ACTIVE ingredients!Probiotic Technology
Plant Stem Cells
Probiotic Technology (ProRenew Complex CLR™)
Probiotics, also known as “good bacteria” are the foundation of Ongaro Organic Skin, Body and Hair Care products. Probiotics renowned for their digestive benefits have been clinically proven to help restore the skin’s natural balance when applied as a topical. Probiotics improve the skin’s successful growth and renewal process along with improving cell cohesion which is critical for beautiful looking skin.
Probiotics also act as an anti-inflammatory and helps our skin heal from damage caused by aging, harsh chemicals, UV rays, and the environment. The main function of our skin is to act as a physical barrier from the harmful containments of the outside world. To maintain this vital function, it is constantly renewing itself – a process that makes it the most dynamic part of our body. Unfortunately, as we age this process diminishes and the skin’s barrier function is impaired. Probiotics are the key to reversing this process.
Plant Stem Cells (PhotoCellTec™ Malus Domestica)
Plant Stem Cells are another incredible breakthrough in skincare technology. Plant stem cells protect the longevity of skin stem cells and combat chronological aging.
Our plant stem cells come from an 18th century Swiss Apple (Uttwiler Spätlauber) that is famous for its storability without shriveling and its ability to heal itself. All stem cells, (plant, animal or human) function to maintain the self-renewal capacity of the skin.
Studies have proven that plant stem cells can reduce visible wrinkles in the skin. The International Journal for Applied Science found that a cream containing plant stem cells decreased “crow’s feet” wrinkles by an average of 8% after two weeks and 15% after just four weeks!
Plant stem cells represent the ultimate origin of much of the food we eat, the oxygen we breathe, as well as the fuels we burn. Thus, plant stem cells may be ranked among the most important cells for human well-being.
Peptides (Matrixyl™ Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3)
Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin. They contribute to the structural strength of the skin and keep it plump and firm.
One of the most important proteins in our skin is collagen. Collagen gives our skin its thickness and suppleness. Unfortunately, when collagen breaks down in the skin from age and environmental factors like sun and stress wrinkles form. Peptides, when applied to the skin send a signal to form new collagen which produces more youthful supple skin. Peptides work from the inside out so you will see the results in 4 to 12 weeks.
The bottom line is that to effectively repair the damage that causes the fine lines and wrinkles you need to follow a daily regimen that replaces lost collagen. More collagen production means diminished lines and wrinkles and a smoother more beautiful complexion.
Organic Aloe Vera (USDA Certified)
Our products all start with 100% pure USDA Organic Aloe Vera as the base ingredient versus most skin care products which use water as their base ingredient.
Aloe Vera has proven to be the miracle gel when it comes to healthy skin and acts as the best delivery system for the active ingredients. It contains 18 of the 20 amino acids found in the body along with Vitamin A, B, C and E. It naturally evens skin tones and helps improve the elasticity of the skin.
Aloe contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents, and like Probiotics it helps stimulate the growth of new skin cells. It also increases the water content in your skin and leaves it hydrated without making it greasy. Aloe Vera can be used in the winter as well as the summer and is good for all skin types.
