Among many other products, their Mineral Eye Cream is a testament to their thoughtful curation of skin care that truly works. Containing 68% glacial oceanic clay, NENA’s Mineral Eye Cream is an amazing example of how their proprietary ingredients have the power to change the face of skin care. We chatted with their founders about what makes their eye cream so special.

What’s the most powerful ingredient in this formula?

Making up 68% of the product, the main ingredient in this formula is the sea silt extract. Sea Silt Extract (glacial mineral water) is a proprietory ingredient made from glacial oceanic clay which is only found in the northern coast of British Columbia. It has over 60 marine minerals and is sourced and made in Canada. As in all NENA products, the formulas are made with pure Glacial Oceanic Clay and/or it derivatives that we harvest, process and manufacture in house following strict standards with full manufacturing transparency.

What else did you add to the formula?

Our Mineral Eye Cream also contains probiotics, green tea, pomegranate and caffeine. Each of these ingredients contributes to the overall anti-aging, tightening and soothing effects of our eye cream. Green Tea is rich in proanthocyanidins which stabilizes collagen and elastin. Pomegranate has a unique antioxidant which provides immediate tightening and lifting benefits. It helps to reduce the appearance of sagging and wrinkles. Caffeine’s vasoconstrictive properties help reduce puffiness reducing blood vessels, increasing circulation and minimizing dark circles under the eyes.

What was your inspiration for the Mineral Eye Cream?

After surveying the NENA community, there was a request for an eye cream. Our Research and Development team studied and sourced a natural complex that aligns with our brand, is clean and vegan. Together we were able to provide amazing results with safe and proven ingredients. The cream can be used by all skin types and is highly effective in reducing tired, baggy eyes and dark circles. It is anti-aging and refreshing.
