Care Skincare: A Consumer-Direct Clean Beauty Brand Formulated with High Quality Ingredients

After a year of intensive research and development, Digital Brands LLC announced the official launch of CareSkincare. The brand was developed by a team of world-class experts who formulated five key highly effective multi-functional products that would address the skin’s most important needs in a straightforward, simple way using high-quality ingredients.

A clean beauty brand, all formulas were developed using only safe, proven ingredients that are fragrance-free. Additionally, no products in the line are ever animal-tested. Care Skincare sells directly to consumers—avoiding retail markups and costs. These savings are passed along to the consumer in the brand’s pricing.

“After having spent many years leading product launches globally for Estee Lauder Companies, Inc., I came to the conclusion that what works in skincare is actually very simple,” said Care Skincare Co-Founder, Ricardo Quintero.“We felt we really owed it to the marketplace to launch a brand that offered a straightforward approach with quality product at a better price.”

The Care Skincare launch includes essential products designed to deliver outstanding results, with minimal daily effort. The collection is straightforward, clean and honest. The brand strives to be easy to understand, having stripped away any unnecessary jargon from its marketing. Packaging is simple, legible, functional, and always recyclable.

“Having tried out skincare regimens throughout my pregnancies, seasonal changes, and travels, I was very much in touch with the challenges of committing to products that weren’t flexible enough to fit my needs at different stages in my life,” said Care Skincare Co-Founder Pilar Quintero. “Careoffers safe, highly effective products that work for all skin types. We knew it was possible to achieve that.”

All products in the Care Skincare line were developed by a team of world-class experts using high quality ingredients that strictly adhere to the brand’s clearly communicated standards for “Clean Beauty.” Everything offered from the brand is fragrance-free, alcohol-free, mineral oil-free, paraben-free, phthalates-free, and cruelty-free.

“The most important lesson I have learned in my 35 years of developing prestige skincare products is that it’s not just about a singular ingredient—it’s how each formula has been independently and expertly curated to work at its maximum potential,” said Debbie D’Aquino, Head of Product Innovation for Care Skincare. “The comfort and elegance of a skincareproduct is equally important to performance and safety.  That’s why each Careproduct has also been designed to be extremely pleasurable to use. This way, you enjoy using them each and every day.” 

The Care Skincare launch collection features five key products:

Soft Sweep Micellar Cleanser + Toner—This gentle, rinse-free formula cleanses effectively without stripping the skin. Its microscopic micelles act as dirt and oil magnets. Soft Sweep Micellar Cleanser + Toner is available in 8 oz. at a retail price of $24.

Deep Moisture Fix Hydrating Water Cream—This gel-cream moisturizer has a soothing texture. The hyaluronic acid in the cream absorbs deeply to provide multi-level hydration and support skin elasticity. The product was designed for use as a daily moisturizer and can be applied under or over make-up and as a quick rehydrating mask. Deep Moisture Fix Hydrating Water Cream is available in 1.7 oz. at a retail price of $35.

Tireless, Retinoid Night Serum—This transformative serum renews and repairs skin overnight. Granactive Retinoid™ provides unparalleled anti-aging benefits without irritation. The product was designed to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation for a visibly brighter, smoother complexion. Tireless, Retinoid Night Serum is offered in two sizes: 1 oz. at a retail price of $45, and 2 oz. at a retail price of $68.

Eye + Lip Nourishing Cream—Formulated to treat and repair the delicate area around the eyes and around the lips, this dense cream with a light-diffusing finish softens the look of fine lines and dark circles. It absorbs quickly and won’t drift into eyes or interfere with makeup. Eye + Lip Nourishing Cream is available in 0.5 oz. at a retail price of $30.

The Everything Multi-Level Moisturizer—This multi-functional formula nourishes, hydrates and repairs the skin and includes powerful antioxidants, turmeric and black tea ferment. Additionally, peptides provide the benefits of a serum in the comfort of a cream. The Everything Multi-Level Moisturizer is available in 1.7 oz. at a retail price of $40.

Skin Care Predictions to Keep You on Track

Often the start of a new year, predictions in varying market categories are made. From top diets for the New Year, to new workout trends, to bucket list travel destinations. Let’s not forget the beauty marketplace. With the start of 2019, BREVENA Laboratories’ Skin Expert and Advanced Practice Esthetician Susannah Courteau is already seeing a few skin care trends that can help you ensure your healthiest skin ever.

Top 3 2019 Skin Care Trends: 

  1.  Replenishing Oils:  The use of replenishing oils in skin care has grown significantly in the past year.  I see this trend not only continuing but growing significantly in 2019.  We grew up hearing “fat free” food was the gold standard and up till recently, the same thing has been propagated in skincare. Thankfully we’ve learned that fat doesn’t actually make you fat (thank you avocados), and in skincare the right oils aren’t greasy and can actually help breakouts. There are a multitude of emollients and fat-based ingredients for the skin that are absolutely phenomenal.  They provide not only the right amount of hydration but anti-inflammatory effects as well that support the skins barrier function. Thank you to science, for putting the spotlight on the proper way to hydrate!
  2.  Blue Light Awareness: Technology is now part of our day to day existence and while we love our apps, they can have a negative effect on our skin.  Thankfully, awareness is growing about the many harmful effects that blue light can have on our bodies including the long-term damaging effects it can have on our skin.  I predict that the role of antioxidants and reparative ingredients in skin care will take on an elevated position in 2019.
  3.  Sheet Masks:  This is a current trend that I see increasing in the coming year.  I like to think that this trend is a reflection of the changing mindset in our society around self-care.  Multitasking has its limits and its hazards. Thankfully, we are beginning to realize the importance of self-care by slowing down and taking time for ourselves to relax and rebalance.  Treating your skin with something special like a mask or scrub is the perfect, healthy way to accomplish this, and it feels amazing!  Trade that last email for a hydrating mask instead.  I promise, you won’t regret it️.

“As you continue to evolve your own wellness regimen, consider these predictions and consider adding even just one of these into your routine to help you jump start a healthier you,” Susannah advises.
