Stimulates Lifeless Skin • Anti-Aging • Highly Absorbent • Antioxidant-Rich
“The” Eye Crème, Step 2 in our 5-Step Facial Regimen, helps diminish dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles. This bioavailable, 99% Certified Organic, plant-based preparation has a 100% botanical delivery system the body recognizes; transforming dull, lifeless skin around the eyes as it assists your body’s defense against aging.
We make our own green tea [tonifying] and amalaki [bioavailable vit c] extracts using biodynamic grape that is cured for 2 months. Alfalfa extract [rich in vitamin K] is macerated in carefully chosen hydrosols and aloe vera. Sea buckthorn and rose hips are added for their antioxidant efficacy, noted in "The" Eye Crème’s rich, orangey color. The essential oils in this formula are specifically chosen to aid circulation and help stagnation. All joined authentically together in a synergy of Certified Organic & Biodynamic ingredients to deliver excellent results that are corrective, preventative, and continued!
A little goes a long way as the botanicals in this formula absorb into the skin easily and effortlessly. This bioavailable preparation may also impart a cool feeling around the eyes, a sign of the active ingredients doing their job.
After cleansing with Rosemary & Geranium Créme Cleanser, apply 1/2 pump of "The" Eye Crème to middle and index fingers. Pat around boney ridge of eyes from inside corner above eyes to inside corner below eyes. Use daily as a preventative. Avoid getting product directly in eyes.
If your eye area has a yellow tinge after using "The" Eye Crème, apply less. A little goes a long way!
"The" Eye Crème was not part of the original 9 Benedetta preparations launched February 1, 1996. I felt the key need for eye crémes were to prevent and rid the skin of fine wrinkles. With that in mind, I saw no reason to cause further expense to my clients and customers when the existing regimen addressed this need.
However, the demand piqued my interest and I started my own research asking the questions: 1. What is the primary reason people want an eye crème? 2. What don’t they want?
It was no surprise to hear wrinkle reduction was the primary reason and the secondary was dark circles and puffiness. I was surprised, however, to find that many felt they could not use most eye crémes due to the irritating oil content of the product, as most are wax or oil based. I set out to first develop an essential oil blend that moved stagnation without stripping the delicate eye area. As with all of Benedetta botanical preparations, no one ingredient stands alone without a synergy to support it.
The next steps were to complete the synergy with bioavailable non-oily plant materials that addressed the issues discussed along with protection and long lasting correction. It took about 2 years before completion, as one of the raw materials had to be developed. Once in place, I launched with confidence that this non-oily, highly active, antioxidant rich formula would be a success. I am proud to offer this authentic handcrafted, small batched "The" Eye Crème. Developed for the delicate eye area, this exquisite preparation is designed to work holistically to rejuvenate, correct, and protect, leaving no oily residue or drag on the skin.

Controls Oil • Diminishes Breakouts • Helps Scarring • Great For Bug Bites
The Control Crème was developed to work as a highly effective antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral treatment to reduce blemishes. Our preparation holistically treats and prevents, and will not dry out the skin for a temporary fix. This remedy helps to regenerate the skin and may even prevent scarring with consistent use. The Control Crème has been renowned for over 20 years in its ability to help aid the relief of many minor blemishes. Customers say it even relieves the itch of a bug bite! Safe to use at any age.
Day: Apply frequently throughout the day to affected area.
The Control Crème was inspired by the use of straight essential oils applied directly on the skin to curb sebum production and the bacteria that lives in that environment, often causing acne.
In the essential oil or aromatherapy world most aspiring aromatherapists are taught that the strong essential oils, like oregano, savory, thyme, and the like, are the ones that will target the bacteria. Though effective to some measure, they are hot and could cause irritation to the skin and mucous membrane. Even applying near the eyes could cause a reaction.
I wanted an alternative to conventional chemicals like Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, and Retin-A to rid the skin of minor to severe blemishes. These popular OTC remedies for blemishes, although providing temporary relief, dry out the skin and often create more of a sebaceous gland issue by producing more sebum. This, in turn, stimulates more bacterial growth, ultimately giving way to the endless cycle.
The holistic view of regeneration and balance became the goal for renewed skin tissue.
Not too hot · Not too mild · But just right
The combination of supportive cellular activity with sebum control allows the aggressive, antibacterial, and antiviral properties of the formula to take root and become evident. The Control Crème is the best synergistic daily application to control oil and blemishes, holistically diminishing further breakouts.

The Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixirs, Step 3 in our 5-Step Facial Regimen, are developed as treatments to help hydrate, balance, and rejuvenate the skin. These original nourishing water-based products were developed in 1986 to reestablish water hydration.
The hydrating nature of our elixirs include a complex botanical synergy specific to each skin type, along with an energetic gem elixir, chosen for its specific mineral qualities, all to assist water saturation.
For use both day and night, these elixirs assist in renewing hydration deeper into the epidermis before oil-based products during the day, and alone at night to regulate while you sleep, without the use of serums, or night creams.
The Anti-Inflammatory Elixir is a very gentle option for those with sensitivities or redness. The botanicals high in chamazulene and red marine algae soothe inflammation.
Please note: Our Artemisia line has been renamed to Anti-Inflammatory. Don't worry, they're still the same amazing formulas.
Shake and spray 3-4 pumps over face and neck. Keep bottle approximately 10-12 inches from face.
Day: After cleansing with Anti-Inflammatory Créme Cleanser, spray face and neck with Anti-Inflammatory Crystal Radiance, before applying Anti-Inflammatory Precious & Nourishing Facial Oil.
Night: After cleansing, apply Nighttime Repair Serum, then spray face and neck with Crystal Radiance.
By Julia Faller, Founder/formulator
The Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir series are authentic formulas based on water integration, saturation and balance. Created in 1986, these little sweeties would become the impetus for creating the Benedetta facial regimen launched 10 years later.
My intention for the Crystal Radiance Elixirs was to aid the relief of dehydration, plaguing the majority of individuals and my clients. The key was to introduce cell hydration during sleep to regain balance when waking.
Our biological clock and *circadian rhythms in the skin affect the biology of appearance and also have a profound effect on the absorption of products where hydration is a key factor. A recent study reveals the importance of the biological clock in the regeneration of skin stem cells. When this system is disrupted it results in premature tissue aging. When skin cells divide, in a process called proliferation, this process takes place during the day at various times, but is at least 30 times more rapid at night than during the day. The rate of water loss is 20% to 30% higher at night than during the day. Therefore, the skin’s regulation with regard to water loss and skin hydration, as well as skin ph and skin temperature, are controlled during sleeping hours.
Enter… Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixirs
Crystal Radiance is comprised of activated, bioavailable waters, to encourage the skin’s natural cell division, repair, and regeneration through hydration. The Crystal Radiance Elixirs where created with this biological clock reference in mind. Use during the DAY under Precious & Nourishing Antioxidant Oils to secure cell saturation and revitalization.
Use alone at NIGHT after cleansing the skin with one of our Massage-In Crème Cleansers. Using no other facial products allows the skin to “breath” while securing much needed moisturizing hydration. After 29 years I can attest to the fact that those of us that refrain from night time cream based products, retain hydration at greater levels, and ultimately have gained a youthful glow and supple feel upon waking.
*Circadian rhythms are physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle, responding primarily to light and darkness in an organism's environment. They are found in most living things, including animals, plants and many tiny microbes. The study of circadian rhythms is called chronobiology.
