Vegan and cruelty free beauty brand, Own, is a San Francisco based skin-health company that believes in the holistic (complete) approach towards healthy skin. Own believes that there are too many chemicals that are in our everyday lives – in our food, in our environment, and even in our skincare products. Own’s foundation is in developing unique, innovative formulas that are effective in improving skin’s overall health, but without the need for harsh chemicals.
Own’s hero ingredient is CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), derived from the safflower plant. CLA helps skin to retain moisture, make new cells, slow the visible aging process and repair collagen structures.
● Does not cause irritation, redness or flakiness
Visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles for more vibrant skin. The naturally derived and patented CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) formula in Own Anti-Aging Firming Silk Concentrate works with your body to treat all three layers of skin through a serum that’s proven to absorb easily without leaving a residue. Own Firming Silk Concentrate works with your own body’s chemistry to reactivate healthy processes and rebuild the skin’s structures for brighter, taut, and younger-looking skin. I found the Silk Concentrate to be non-irritating, non-greasy and soothing to the skin. Note: the product doesn’t actually contain silk, so it is vegan.
Hydrate and illuminate your skin nightly with a luxurious formula designed to fight all three causes of aging while you rest. Own Anti-Aging Refining Night Cream features clinically proven CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) technology, a plant-based ingredient designed to enhance collagen levels, improve moisture retention, and boost metabolism for softer, smoother, and genuinely younger-looking skin. 94% of women who tried Own Anti-Aging Refining Night Cream reported that it absorbs easily and penetrates the skin quickly. The night cream made my skin feel soft and smooth. It’s a little thick for my acne-prone skin, so I would recommend for normal to dry skin types.
Own Anti-Aging Lifting Eye Cream. Is formulated to lift and smooth wrinkles while brightening skin with clinically proven CLA technology. CLA technology lifts and firms, restores and hydrates so your eyes can look as good as you feel.
Own Anti-Aging Lifting Eye Cream has been clinically proven to:
- Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet by 61%
- Decrease in the total number of wrinkles around the eye area by 30%
The eye cream is not overly thick at all, but I prefer serums and thinner product around the eyes to prevent millia (small bumps around the eyes). The product was hydrating and made my eyes look brighter and more fresh.
