If you’ve heard the term “microgreens”, you may have wondered about these tiny trending plants. You’ve walked past their little bobbing heads at your supermarket, seen them piled up on plates at your local eatery, and they’re even showing up in the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection

What’s the big fuss about something so small? With Earth Day around the corner, we’re here to walk you through the microgreens phenomenon and help you find out more about these environmentally friendly plants and their health benefits in food and skin care.

WHAT ARE MICROGREENS?

Microgreens are exactly what they sound like: small and green! They are simply mini plants – like broccoli, radish or clover sprouts – that are harvested in their seedling stage before they reach maturity. Planet-friendly because they require few resources, microgreens are ready to go in 14 days or less. These cute little leaves are intensely flavored and add a zesty accent to salads, sandwiches and even soups.

MICROGREEN HEALTH BENEFITS

Besides adding flavor to your plate, microgreens deliver nutrients to your body. According to a study by the US Department of Agriculture, the leaves of almost all microgreens have “four to six times more nutrients than the mature leaves of the same plant.” As USDA researcher Dr. Gene Lester points out, “All of these nutrients are extremely important for skin, eyes, and fighting cancer and have all sorts of benefits associated with them.”

EMINENCE ORGANICS MICROGREENS DETOX COLLECTION


While eating microgreens provides potent nutritional benefits, using microgreens in your skin care products further enhances those healthy effects.

The new Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection harnesses the powerful actions of these leafy ingredients to cleanse and protect the skin from drying environmental stressors with these three products:
1. The Eminence Organics Stone Crop Cleansing Oil restores balance and removes impurities.
2. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant brightens and invigorates through exfoliation.
3. The Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment revitalizes and detoxifies dry skin with a lightweight gel cream.

Together, this capsule collection uses microgreens and ingredients like stonecrop to target the drying effects of pollution on the skin. Find out where you can buy the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection at your nearest Eminence spa.

MICROGREENS, ROASTED BEETS & GOAT CHEESE SALAD RECIPE


To experience the natural potency of microgreens both inside and out, you can introduce them in your diet as well as add them to your skin care routine. We love this recipe that tosses together tender microgreens with sweet roasted beets and the rich flavor of goat cheese:

INGREDIENTS:

Salad:
3-4 beets (we used golden beets)
⅓ cup goat cheese
2 cups microgreens

Dressing:
3 TB extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 TB white balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Wash beets thoroughly. Wrap each one individually in foil, place on baking sheet and roast for 45-60 minutes.
2. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Unwrap each beet and peel the skin which should slip away easily, then cube.
3. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and toss with microgreens gently.
4. Crumble goat cheese on microgreens and top with beets.

With countless fans who are celebrities, make-up artists and beauty editors, our award-winning Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant has quickly become a cult classic. If this coveted exfoliant is already part of your beauty arsenal, our new Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ will take your skin care routine to the next level. But don’t swap out your beloved Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant just yet. Here’s why this classic favorite and popular newcomer are better together.

LARGE VS. SMALL PARTICLES

If you’re after the smoothing action of a physical exfoliant, the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is probably one of your go-to products. The particles in this best seller gently slough dead cells from the skin’s surface, for a perfectly buffed complexion. The particles in the Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ are finer, giving them the ability to zero in on hard to reach spots and reveal a clean and refreshed complexion.

POWDER-TO-PASTE VS. POWDER-TO-FOAM

Adding water to the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant creates a creamy paste that gently exfoliates to smooth your skin’s texture. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant is a powder-to-foam product that generates a light, fizzing action to release oxygen onto your skin’s surface, invigorating your complexion and bringing it back to life.

POLISHING VS. DEEP CLEANING

The Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant cares for the surface of your skin, sloughing away dead cells and buffing its texture for a smooth, flawless looking finish. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ is your anti pollution solution – it de-gunks clogged pores by softening impurities that have accumulated throughout the day and harnesses the power of potent microgreens to protect against the aging effects of environmental stressors.

HOW TO USE THEM TOGETHER

To experience the benefits of both exfoliants, we recommend using the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant in the morning to smooth and prep your skin and the Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ at night to remove dirt and grime that collects during the day.
