The First ALL Botanical Skin Care of Its Kind
Clean ● Organic ● Biodynamic
"Assisting your skin's best behavior"
–Julia Faller, Founder/Formulator
As the hallmark and standard of excellence in caring for your skin, Benedetta has championed Certified Organic & Biodynamic agriculture with the creation of functional formulations.
Founder, Julia Faller, created Benedetta with a clear intention to serve a need that hadn’t yet been met in the middle 80’s in an industry riddled with petrochemicals and false ingredients. Benedetta’s unique insistence on Farm-sourced® ingredients, with attention to synergistic formulas, is key to delivering function and results through a system of use or holistic regimen.
Benedetta may not follow the status quo or conventional thinking of what the skin needs, like- no toners after cleansing, no night creams, no soapy cleansers, no spfs, and more. Instead, the line is developed with the holistic and systemic view of what the skin truly needs to be more nourished and less damaged.
“I marry the intelligence and wisdom of the botanicals in a way that
Resonates with our vital core and functions of the skin.” - Julia Faller
No single botanical is as useful or bioavailable to an organism (such as our skin) until they are unified to create a purpose. Once together, they provide sustenance and establish their own individual DNA, which by its own composition can be replicated, with exception to the changeable differences of the botanical constituents with each cultivating year. It’s in this botanical union that makes each formula have purpose, whether used alone or in conjunction with another preparation to enhance the true health of the skin.
To sum it up - the ingredients are the life force of each composition, but it is with a keen understanding of the true methodology of what the skin needs to be healthy and balanced that makes a functional skin care preparation and line. We stand firm on our awareness and conviction that plant-derived antioxidants protect the skin and filter atmospheric damage as key elements to our longevity. As is Water Integration, another pioneered concept that has proven true as we age; with a focus on water hydration before oil, and alone at night to replenish the lost hydration/moisture ratio as we sleep.
Each individual is different, we have our own genetic coding and heritage to deal with. Not all of us are a size 2, or have curly or straight hair, but each of us deserves the right to have clear, youthful skin and be the best we can be. There is truth in knowing this and finding great solutions to our care, again holistically and sustainably.
Here at Benedetta, one of the most important tenets of our system is hydration and water integration. Water is the single most important substance to enliven our system and our skin. Your skin is 64% water and our cells need and thrive in a water-rich environment. Adequate hydration helps our skin maintain balance, aid nutrient uptake, and more importantly, look and feel healthy. As we age, we lose the hydration our cells need and skin dehydrates quicker, leading to wrinkles, puffiness, and sagging.
