New, Green Products by Sunday Riley
Sunday Riley’s high-performance skin-care line has seen a growth in fans since her brand’s launch in 2009. Riley’s independent Houston company coined the term “green technology,” a balance between science-based active ingredients and botanicals. Her products reflect this technology.
Retinol can make one’s skin turn red and flaky if used improperly, but Sunday Riley’s Luna Sleeping Night Oil rejuvenates and boosts skin’s appearance. The blue oil is packed with retinol and works throughout the night to improve wrinkles, pores, and redness and is suitable for all skin types. Balanced with blue tansy and German chamomile, it reduces the signs of premature aging without the use of parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
Sunday Riley produced a gentler, deeper-cleansing, more nurturing Ceramic Slip Facial Cleanser with French green clay, bentonite, and white clay. These ingredients draw impurities from the skin while rice and olive oil esters balance for hydration. This balancing, foaming cleanser comes in a blue tube now and can be applied to all skin types daily. This plant-based product naturally purifies skin and removes makeup without causing irritation or using parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. It is also free of fragrance, oil, silicone, and cruelty, making it available for vegan use.
With 1.5% salicylic acid, tea tree oil, black cumin seed oil, hexylresorcinol, and licorice, Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil (U.F.O.) hydrates without flaking the user’s skin. Sunday Riley’s medicated dry oil clears pores, then treats and prevents acne and blackheads while smoothing lines and wrinkles. Like previously listed products, there are no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream is the last product listed. This cream is lightweight, fragrance-free, and can be refrigerated to enhance its depuffing effects. Packed with caffeine, Brazilian ginseng root, horse chestnut, and acmella oleracea, the product reduces dark circles around the eyes and smoothes fine lines. For sensitive skin hydration, the formula contains cocoa butter, shea butter, watermelon rind extract, and sodium PCA. Just like all the other products, this one has no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates, and it’s cruelty-free and fragrance-free. As an added bonus, Sunday Riley’s contour cream is safe to use for anyone with a gluten allergy.
