    The Holy Grail of Skincare: Josh Rosebrook

    The holy grail of skincare hit our shelves and we could not be more excited to share it with all of you! Josh Rosebrook is officially part of the Back to Basics family.

    Great skincare products begin with great ingredients and Josh Rosebrook’s commitment to using the greatest, purest, and most effective ingredients is unparalleled. Every ingredient in every product is designed to support the function and improve the appearance of the skin.

    Josh Rosebrook’s approach is aimed at helping to accelerate our skin’s natural ability to heal and regenerate instead of simply masking the skin’s symptoms. He accomplishes this by infusing the most powerful plant ingredients and nutrients found in nature into his skincare products. Choosing plant elements that share similar molecular structures to that of our own bodies creates a bio-match enabling these ingredients to work with our skin and effectively promote healthy skin.

    The most unique quality about this skincare line is the attention paid to the synergy between plant and herbal extracts. 

    “Expertly combined elements interact to produce an exponentially greater effect than the sum of those individual elements. Every ingredient is chosen for its unique healing properties as well as its ability to support and enhance the benefits of every other ingredient. We thoughtfully hand pick herbs then combine them in specific proportions to create a potent, effective synergy.”

    - Josh Rosebrook

    This skincare line offers options for all skin types and needs. Each product is designed to treat the skin holistically which helps you to achieve optimal skin health. While we are enamored by the entire line, we want to share our top 3 must-have products by Josh Rosebrook.

    1. Tinted Nutrient Day Cream SPF 30 

    This 3-in-1 cream is at the top of our “can’t live without it” list. It is quickly becoming one of our best sellers at Back to Basics, which is no surprise to anyone that has tried it. This botanically rich, ultra-nourishing day cream gives you sun protection as well as a light tint to even out skin tone and provide a health overall glow. The tint matches to any skin tone and is perfect for daily wear.

    2. Active Enzyme Exfoliator

    Josh emphasizes exfoliation as an important step in our skincare routines. It eliminates dead skin cells and allows the nutrients from his products to nourish and transform the underlying healthy skin cells. This mask is the perfect balance of gentle and powerful. It employs a combination of enzymes and finely ground walnut shells to bring out your most radiant skin.

    3. Hydrating Accelerator

    This face mist provides the perfect amount of hydration while acting as a transport vehicle for all of the nutrients. It releases the surface tension of the skin to help the nutrients travel through the layers of the dermis. It works as a powerful enhancer for all of the other products. Just when you thought this skincare line couldn’t get any better, this spray makes it exponentially so!

    One of the best parts of this skincare line is how well the products work together. Which Josh Rosebrook products are you most excited to try? Check out the complete lineup here
