Sweet Chef was born out of our love for all things fresh pressed and natural. Our products are inspired by what you might find in your local juice shop, because we believe if it’s great for your body, it can be great for your skin, too! This is where we start looking for inspiration, and there’s been a couple of ingredients that have been taking the wellness world by storm. We’re sure you’ve heard of them too and can understand just why we had to make them part of the Sweet Chef family.
Please meet the Oat Milk Latte Cleanser and Turmeric + Vitamin C Booster Eye Cream! Both of these products have been a long time coming – you’ve been asking for them! – and are here to help you build out your very own, customized, sweet skin routine.
Let’s start with the Oat Milk Latte Cleanser. This gentle, sulfate-free, non-stripping cleanser is infused with calming oats, antioxidant-filled coffee seed extract, and healing vitamin B12. These delicious ingredients are whisked together to create our first cleanser that’s made for all skin types, even sensitive. It’s also formulated to remove makeup! This means that while it helps to wash away build up, mascara, and other stuff, it won’t leave your skin feeling tight or dry.
We were inspired by the growing popularity of oat milk lattes (it’s a kitchen staple for us!). Oats are known to have soothing and healing properties because they’re naturally high in avenanthramides, which are anti-inflammatory and antioxidants. While oats are naturally rich in B vitamins, we also added vitamin B12 and panthenol (vitamin B5), which are go-to ingredients for helping to deal with dry and sensitive skin. Because of its universally soothing, hydrating, and non-stripping ingredients, this cleanser is the perfect first step to any Sweet Chef skin routine, morning and night.
The transformative milky gel-to-foam formula soothes skin, breaks down makeup, removes dirt and oil, and improves skin barrier health, all while delivering hydration and never stripping skin of natural moisture. Do you know what its soft, mildly foaming texture reminds us of? You guessed it: oat milk!
Moving onto another exciting addition to the Sweet Chef fam, we have the Turmeric + Vitamin C Booster Eye Cream! Awaken your eyes with the cult-fave juicery ingredient, turmeric. This eye cream is the ultimate cocktail to brighten, moisturize, and soothe.
We wanted to harness the powerful natural properties of turmeric to help keep your eyes looking bright and awake. You’ve probably seen a DIY turmeric mask or two floating around the internet, but did you know that women in India have been using turmeric to care for their skin for centuries? Turmeric is packed with curcumin, making it an anti-inflammatory and brightening powerhouse. You’ll also find one of our favorite veggie and vitamin pairings: a stable vitamin C-derivative (3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid) and ginger, which has over 40 kinds of antioxidant properties! Niacinamide is known to help strengthen your skin barrier, so we paired that with probiotics that help the healthy bacteria on your acid mantle flourish. Vitamin E, tea seed oil, pumpkin seed oil, and pumpkin extract all work together to keep the skin around your eyes healthy and firm.
The texture of our first eye cream is a lightweight, makeup-friendly gel-cream that sinks into skin for an instant moisturized glow. You can wear it on its own, but it’s also great to prep for eye makeup or concealer. It’s worth mentioning the skin around your eyes is super delicate, too, and needs a bit of extra gentle care. This unique blend of vitamins and turmeric effectively brightens, moisturizes, and soothes, all while being free artificial shimmers – no tricks here, just bomb ingredients.
One of our favorite skin care tips is to apply eye cream before our serums and moisturizer! This is because serums usually aren’t formulated for use around the eye area. At least, ours aren’t, and because the skin around your eye is more delicate, we think it’s best to avoid putting active ingredients too close to your peepers. So just apply your eye cream after cleansing and toning, then follow with your fav serum cocktail. Oh, and don’t forget to always use your ring fingers and gently tap, never rub or pull the skin around your eyes!
As with all Sweet Chef products, our Oat Milk Latte Cleanser and Turmeric + Vitamin C Booster Eye Cream are both completely vegan, free of silicone, synthetic dyes, synthetic fragrance, parabens, and phthalates. They’re just made with the good stuff!
