This eye cream has been formulated with repurposed maple bark extract to protect the delicate skin around the eyes. Maple bark extract, a by-product of the wood industry has anti-inflammatory properties. Bark is the protective “skin” of the tree, here UpCircle are reusing it in the same way, to protect and nourish our skin. The maple extract is rich in antioxidants and acts as an anti-inflammatory, meaning that it reduces redness and helps skin appear brighter. It is also known to help strengthen the skin barrier and boost collagen production. Cucumber extract is added to hydrate tired or puffy skin underneath the eyes. Cucumber extract is considered a skin superfood. Cucumber slices are often placed over the eyes during facials as the ingredient is extremely gentle, and therefore great to use on the delicate sensitive skin around the eyes! It is also an astringent, meaning it tightens and firms your skin to revitalize it and help reduce the appearance of the signs of aging. Cucumber extract contains proteins, lipids, Vitamin C, and a variety of minerals, meaning that it moisturises deeply and leaves the skin feeling smooth. It’s an ideal ingredient for helping to soothe and relieve puffy skin. Coffee extract is antioxidant-rich in vitamins such as Vitamin E, which help brighten dark circles. High amounts of Vitamin E and other essential nutrients found in coffee help to soothe and moisturise your skin. Caffeine is one of the most popular ingredients you can use to reduce eye puffiness and dark circles. Its anti-inflammatory properties decrease swelling by constricting blood vessels under the eye.

There is just so much to love about UpCircle and their beauty range. They are pioneers when it comes to making sustainable, low waste, natural, vegan and cruelty-free skincare. The circular economy sits at the heart of what they do. By upcycling products that would have normally gone to waste or have been disgarded and transforming them into natural and organic beauty products.
From this vision, they have created a range of high performing products from waste ingredients like used coffee grounds, fruit stones and chai spices. This is a great way to reduce waste but not only that, the materials that are saved and being used to make UpCircles range also have some incredible benefits for your skin. In particular, they are all high in natural antioxidants and vitamins which help protect your skin from UV and pollution damage.
It doesn’t just stop there. UpCircle has continued to build on their message of sustainability creating packaging for their products that is also eco-friendly and plastic-free where possible. This means 99% of their packaging is completely plastic-free and the remaining 1% can be sent back to them to be re-used or recycled.
