Did you know you have 3 main layers to your skin – the epidermis, the dermis and the hypo-dermis?

Many products – creams, ointments, serums – are absorbed primarily through the first two layers but rarely are able to penetrate all three – where the healing magic happens.

Carinaorganics.com says “More complex skin issues are generally stress related, causing nerve endings, nerve fibers, arrector pili muscles, dermal papillae, oil glands, blood and lymph vessels to become irritated, itchy, red and inflamed.


Canadian winters are especially difficult on the skin. The bitter cold and the dryness suck the moisture & oils right out, leaving your skin feeling awkwardly tight, dry & itchy.

We’re in love with the West Coast Canadian company Carina Organics. For harsh and ruthless winters, we highly recommend their professional-brand moisturizer Botanical Therapeutic.  

This light, yet effective, skin cream contains Pacific Northwest botanical tree and plant extracts (Douglas fir, pine bark extract and spruce).

The special blend of oils and pine bark extract liquefy when exposed to the heat of the skin and can easily penetrate the 3 layers of your skin – offering a deeper and more healing therapeutic action. This can be more beneficial for helping heal complex skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea and dry, red, sensitive skin.

One technique Carina recommends is to layer the product multiple times onto the skin – so massage the product into the skin until it looks fully absorbed (from a white consistency to a clear consistency) and then repeat a few times (up to 5-7) in order to drive it deeper to the hypo-dermis.

We’ve seen excellent results and have had countless clients report positive feedback within just 7 days.  

These West Coast guys know what they’re doing. Best of all, this product is 100% clean.

This product is:

  • Synthetic Free
  • Cortisone and Steroid Free
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Cruelty Free
  • Vegan
  • 100% Biodegradable (safe in rivers, lakes and oceans)
  • Soy Free

Well done Carina!
