Evolve Beauty makes all of its own products, and that means they know what is in them, why each ingredient is included and where every single ingredient comes from. This is the reason why they are able to innovate and avoid toxic standard practices (like cheap chemical fillers or adding tiny ineffective amounts of active ingredients). This extra level of involvement they have in every element of product creation, from initial ideas through to the finished product, is what makes their products stand out from the crowd. Every Evolve product is handmade in small batches in their wind-powered eco studio with the freshest ingredients. Hand making every product may take them slightly longer, but they believe that quality skincare requires skill, time and care. If you were to visit their studio you would see that they use blenders, dough mixers and other small scale production tools, and that it shares more similarities with a kitchen than an industrial production line. Nature is the source of their inspiration. They don’t just use natural ingredients: they use the genius of nature. Many of our active ingredients were developed by another living organism (thank you flowers, kelps, roots and nuts) to help their own cells thrive and prosper in some of the harshest conditions in the world. So, whenever Evolve is searching for a new ingredient that can help with hydration, nutrition, protection, strengthening, elasticity or anything else, the first question is always ‘what would nature do?’ Evolve uses scientific methods to find the most effective natural solutions to skincare concerns, and creates the most effective formulas. They don’t use science to ‘add’ to nature in the form of synthetic chemicals. Instead they use science to help create the best natural formulations that are intrinsically better for skin.
