Intelligent Elixirs is a lovely independent skincare brand owned by two women with a combined 36 years of industry experience in professional skincare development. They were inspired to create a product line for the consumer marketplace that performs on the same level as professional products, but with ingredients that are clean, clinical, and cruelty-free.
Intelligent Elixirs emphasize Vitamin C as essential to maintaining skin's health, providing daily support, and fighting free radical damage. As we age, the value of supplementing our diets with proper vitamins and nutrients increases – it’s crucial to do the same for our skin as well. What sets Intelligent Elixirs apart from other skincare lines in the natural market space is that their products are clinically driven formulas. Their knowledge of how and why the skin ages and the inclusion of key ingredients to create change in the skin to keep it healthy and youthful make these products both safe and effective.
The company mission is to offer clean products free of toxic ingredients; coupled with a commitment to complete transparency of the ingredients in the products. Focused on anti-aging, improving the skins health and overall appearance, they do not test on animals and do not formulate with the following:
- Artificial Fragrances
- GMO material
- Artificial Dyes
