Eco-Friendly Luxury: BeLagu Naturals’ Commitment to Luxury & Sustainable Skin Care

“There must be a better way to make the things we want, a way that doesn’t spoil the sky, or the rain or the land.” – Paul McCartney

We might not know it, but sometimes the beauty products that keep our skin healthy and radiant endanger our only home, the planet Earth. 

As people worldwide grow more aware of their beauty regimens’ effects on themselves and the environment, we are witnessing an unprecedented shift. Men and women of all generations now demand sustainable and eco-friendly skincare options.

According to an analysis by Grand View Research, the global market for organic and natural personal care products is projected to soar to $25.1 billion by 2025, up from $11.5 billion in 2018! This just proves that many people will choose natural, sustainable, and eco-friendly items over their synthetic equivalents. 

And what’s even more pleasantly surprising is that this goes beyond the actual products themselves. Consumers are also concerned with the ethics and principles of the businesses they support. 

2019 survey by Accenture found that 83% of consumers think it’s critical for businesses to design items that can be recycled or reused. This shows us that consumers actively seek out and put effort into promoting businesses that highly value sustainability and environmental responsibility. 

Enter BeLagu Naturals, a luxury brand committed to exclusively using clean and natural ingredients and upholding sustainable business practices to create skincare products that are not just good for your skin but also, the planet. The brand offers effective, high-quality products and makes sure to do so while taking care of the environment and supporting and empowering communities. 

Let’s dive in! 

BeLagu Naturals’ Sustainability Efforts 

Sustainability isn’t simply a buzzword at BeLagu Naturals; it’s our way of doing business and even our way of life. We make every effort to guarantee that our business methods are environmentally sustainable and socially responsible, from sourcing natural ingredients to cutting waste and carbon emissions.

Our Commitment to Sustainable Sourcing Practices 

We start our journey at the very beginning—our sourcing practices. BeLagu Naturals goes to great lengths to make sure our natural ingredients are sustainably and ethically produced. We collaborate with local farmers and suppliers to ensure our ingredients are of the best quality and their harvesting does not harm the environment. 

By using natural ingredients, we are not only creating effective skincare products, but we are also reducing the number of synthetic materials that end up in the earth’s water and soil. 

Our Commitment to Sustainable Manufacturing and Packaging Processes 

Aside from how we source our ingredients, we also pay close attention to our manufacturing and packaging practices to reduce waste and carbon emissions. 

We use energy-efficient machinery and even implemented a recycling program to minimize our waste throughout our production process. Our product packaging is also designed with sustainability in mind, using eco-friendly materials like glass and recycled paper.

Our Commitment to Our Communities 

Our dedication to sustainability goes beyond creating eco-friendly skincare products. As part of our social responsibility initiatives and efforts, we’ve dedicated ourselves to supporting communities affected by environmental disasters, such as the California bushfires. 

Through our “Project Communities” initiative, we donate a percentage of our sales to organizations that support environmental disaster relief efforts. Every time you purchase a BeLagu product, you also positively impact the world around you—that’s a win-win!

By making a conscious effort to give back to the communities that continue to inspire us, we aim to show that business and social responsibility can go hand in hand. 

Belagu Naturals’ Whole Ingredients and Product Quality 

Here at BeLagu Naturals, we understand the importance of using natural ingredients in our products. Clean and whole ingredients don’t harm your skin, so we source only the highest quality natural ingredients for all of our products—from our serums to our vegan masks. 

The Benefits of Natural Ingredients 

Natural ingredients are a cornerstone of BeLagu Naturals’ commitment to eco-friendly beauty. Not only are these ingredients better for the environment, but they also provide numerous benefits for the skin. 

Unlike synthetic ingredients that can be harsh and irritating, natural ingredients work in harmony with the skin, providing gentle yet effective results. Here’s how our sustainably sourced natural ingredients contribute to the high quality of our skincare products: 

  • Gentle on the skin: Unlike synthetic ingredients that can cause irritation, dryness, and other skin reactions, pure ingredients are generally gentle and well-tolerated by all skin types. They are less likely to cause allergic reactions or sensitivities, making them a safer and healthier option for sensitive or reactive skin.
  • Better absorption: Clean ingredients are more easily absorbed by the skin, allowing them to work more effectively and efficiently.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties: Some raw ingredients have anti-inflammatory properties that can help relax and soothe sensitive skin. Additionally, they can lessen the redness and swelling brought on by illnesses like rosacea, acne, and eczema. 
  • Antioxidant properties: Many whole ingredients are packed with antioxidants that can shield the skin from the harm caused by free radicals brought on by pollution, UV radiation, and other environmental stressors. Through a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, antioxidants help to delay premature aging. 
  • Nourishing and hydrating: Natural ingredients like plant oils and butters provide deep hydration and nourishment to the skin, leaving it looking and feeling soft, supple, and healthy.

These are just a few of the many benefits of clean ingredients in skincare products. At BeLagu Naturals, we harness the power of naturally-available ingredients to create effective, gentle, and eco-friendly beauty products that are truly luxurious.

How Mushrooms Are Nature’s Hidden Skincare Treasure

Mushrooms: Nature’s Hidden Skincare Treasure

“Look deep into nature, and you will understand everything better.” -Albert Einstein

Plants are one of the most underrated living things on Earth. They’re packed with amazing benefits from the roots to the leaves, yet they pretty much live a no-fuss, low-key existence.

Since ancient times, plants have been used as traditional medicines. With the rise of green consciousness and the clean beauty revolution, it’s now considered one of the best things that have ever happened in skin care. 

Faux Plant, Real Deal

Mushrooms have lived on Earth for millions of years, and it has built a solid reputation for itself.  It is known as a potent traditional medicine and has been widely used by ancient healers for its healing, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It may look cute and fairy-like, but in reality, mushrooms are an absolute powerhouse of skin-healthy benefits. 

To set the record straight, mushrooms are not plants, though they are still considered a vegetable. They don’t contain chlorophyll, so they can’t photosynthesize and make food. Mushrooms belong to the fungi family with a plant-like form characterized by a stem and a fleshy cap, which is considered to be the fungi’s flower.  

The growth of fungi runs deep underground. What you see on the surface is definitely not the entire mushroom story. And no, the whimsical umbrella structure does not house elves. Rather, it is the ‘fruiting body’ containing the anatomy that produces and releases the spores for reproduction. 

Fungi play a very important role in the ecosystem. They break down organic matter to allow other creatures to feed on the nutrients and get rid of harmful chemicals and bacteria in water and soil. Mushrooms are also a rich source of protein and have chock full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and prebiotics.

Fun fact: Mushrooms and toadstool refer to the same fungi. Mushrooms are edible and healthy, while toadstools are those you don’t want to mess with because of their poisonous nature. 

Mushroom Matters

COVID-19 opened Pandora’s box and issued a grim reminder about mortality. Almost overnight, the demand for holistic health and wellness products skyrocketed, with more people now opting for healthier, cleaner alternatives from food to beauty and skincare products. And with mushrooms having both nutritional value and medicinal properties, it’s no surprise that these incredible fungi took the beauty world by storm. 

Mushrooms are a deep reservoir of antioxidants, antibacterial, anti-tyrosinase, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antidiabetic, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antitumor and hepatoprotective properties. Quite a mouthful, but these are actually the good stuff that makes a mushroom the perfect ingredient for cosmetic formulations. 

According to scientific literature published in the National Library of Medicine, National Center for Biotechnology Information, some mushroom species have been known to contain numerous bioactive compounds, such as l-ergothioneine and lentinan, known to exert potent antioxidant  and anti-inflammatory activities.

Mushrooms are also packed with vitamins A, C, and D and biologically active compounds that make them a really powerful skincare ingredient.  These are also well-known adaptogens, which means that they help the body cope with stress and, in general, promote life longevity.

With all these wonderful benefits, it’s not surprising then that the fungi have caught the attention of giant pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies who have allotted a huge chunk of their resources to the research and development of mushroom products.

Fun fact: Have you ever wondered why mushrooms are like a dream come true to humanity? Quite surprisingly, fungi and animals share a common ancestry and up to 50% of our DNA. This makes us and mushrooms very compatible indeed. 

Belagu Natural’s Mushroom Magic

Belagu Naturals believes that there’s so much beauty in nature. Hence, it turned to plants to make skincare and health products that are sustainable, vegan, cruelty-free, and packaged in entirely recyclable materials. The brand has full confidence in the fungi’s untapped potential in creating clean, organic products that it concocted a wide range of beauty essentials such as serums, creams, toners, and masks that boasts of the mushroom’s magic. 

Here are some of the fantastic fungi that make BeLagu Skincare truly effective and skin-worthy.

Snow Mushroom Extract (Tremella fuciformis)

Tremella fuciformis or snow mushroom is a fungus that has the appearance of a white gelatinous flower and is commonly used as food and medicine in Asia. This mushroom, dubbed as a natural hyaluronic acid, is considered a hydration powerhouse because it can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Because of this ability, Tremella mushroom is one of the most popular fungi skincare ingredients. 

It has high polysaccharide content acting as a humectant, creating a barrier on the skin’s surface to lock in moisture and make the skin feel soft, plump, and smooth. It is also a moisturizing agent that keeps nails and hair hydrated. Specifically, humectants present in snow mushrooms are mannose, xylose, and glucuronic acid. 

Snow mushroom is also rich in Vitamin D, so it exhibits amazing skin healing abilities and is quite effective in promoting cell growth and maintaining the skin’s barrier function. 

Tremella Talks

To hydrate and gently cleanse the face, use BeLagu’s Hydrating Facial Cleanser + Squalane. It has effective and all-natural ingredients such as snow mushroom and Sodium Hyaluronate, Aquaxyl, Squalane and Decyl Glucoside that comes together to deliver a gentle cleanser that is highly effective in hydrating the skin and in removing makeup, natural oils, and impurities. 

For cleansing and toning, BeLagu’s Intense Illuminating Toner + Niacinamide comes to the rescue.  It is an alcohol-free formulation that gently cleanses and tones without risking the loss of the skin’s natural moisture. This refreshing blend uses natural ingredients, such as Tremella Fuciformis (Snow Mushroom). 

Dry, rough skin? BeLagu’s Dewy Moisture Replenishing Cream has your backIt is a rich, lightweight cream that instantly promotes skin elasticity, hydration, moisture retention, and reduction of fine lines.  It makes skin silky smooth, and moisturized thanks to its natural ingredients, such as the snow mushroom. 

To finish off your skincare routine, use BeLagu’s Mineral Sunscreen Face Moisturizer SPF 30. It is an exceedingly lightweight formula that uses natural and safe ingredients. This sunscreen + moisturizer is also proven effective for all skin types and tones.

The Mineral Sunscreen Face Moisturizer SPF 30 principal ingredients include:

  • Zinc Oxide: Safe ingredient which creates a physical barrier between skin and damaging UV rays.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate: Moisturizing agent and natural humectant — preserves the elasticity and firmness of the skin
  • Niacinamide: A multifunctional vitamin that promotes the production of essential skin proteins and helps reduce the effects of UV and environmental pollutants.

Reishi (ganoderma lucidu)

Reishi mushroom is not nicknamed the “mushroom of immortality” for nothing.  This fungus is quite prevalent in Asia for its ability to boost the immune system, cure infection and fight cancer.  It also actively fights free radicals and contains ergothioneine and reduced glutathione, two of the most powerful antioxidants. This enhances sun protection, eliminates wrinkles, and prevents premature aging. 

Reishi is high in polysaccharides and ganoderic acid, reversing collagen degradation and cellular damage. Moreover, it can decrease melanin concentration to eliminate dark spots and acne scars. Reishi also helps with hydration and has antioxidant-rich adaptogens, which aid the body in adapting to stress and fatigue. Its beta-glucan ingredient is responsible for the mushroom’s anti-inflammatory benefits.  

This super-mushroom also supports the skin’s resilience against stressors, locks in moisture, and improves barrier function to smoothen and soothe the skin.

Reishi Revelations

  • BeLagu’s Youth Defense Serum + Fullerene uses powerful age-defying ingredients for a more youthful appearance. This super-enriched serum corrects uneven skin tone and eliminates dullness to reveal a more radiant complexion. It also brings back the skin’s healthy glow and prevents premature aging. 

Shiitake (lentinula edodes)

In Japan, where it has been cultivated for over 2000 years, shiitake is known as the aromatic mushroom and symbolizes youth and longevity. In China, where it is used in traditional Chinese medicine, it is called the elixir of life. But this declaration is not surprising, as shiitake is rich in essential amino acids. This mushroom also prevents the deterioration of collagen, which can result in smoother, brighter, youthful-looking skin. 

Shiitake is famous for its ability to fade the appearance of photodamage and acne scarring, so it is quite effective in brightening the skin, which could be attributed to its naturally occurring kojic acid. 

It also has ergothioneine and beta-glucan, making shiitake a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory cosmetic ingredient. These compounds strengthen the skin’s defense system by activating the immunocompetent cells to help fight environmental stressors.  Shiitake’s healing properties also help improve the skin’s barrier strength and boost elasticity.  

Shiitake Secrets

Rapid Brightening Serum + Tranexamic Acid

  • Want to drink from the fountain of youth? Or better yet you can lather this luxurious Rapid Brightening Serum + Tranexamic Acid to get noticeably bright, smooth and even-toned complexion. This serum has pure and gentle ingredients so it won’t harm your skin in the process. Make sure to supplement your skin protection with Belagu Mineral Sunscreen SPF30 moisturizer and limit sun exposure when using Rapid Brightening Serum.        

Cordyceps Sinensis Extract (Cordyceps Mushroom)

Cordyceps Sinensis is a medicinal mushroom characterized by its long, skinny shape and bright orange color. Like its cousins in the fungi family, Cordyceps is an excellent source of antioxidants with benefits including skin hydration and collagen and elastin production. It also improves skin elasticity and is known to be anti-inflammatory. Cordyceps protects the skin from free radicals and environmental damage, and it can reverse the signs of aging and support cellular activity for healthy, younger-looking skin. 

This mushroom has healing properties too, and when applied topically, it can treat eczema and other skin conditions.

Read on to know their key benefits and how they work together to create a comprehensive skincare routine that addresses multiple concerns. 

Before doing so, though, let’s first find out what makes the natural ingredients featured in our products so special. 

Why Do Natural Ingredients Matter in Skin Care? 

Skin care has always been a huge part of our self care rituals. But now, more than ever, people are becoming growingly more conscious of taking care of the environment as well.

According to a British data analytics firm, Information Resources Inc., some rising trends in the beauty scene are:

  1. Drawing inspirations from nature in sourcing skin care wonder ingredients;
  2. Rising demand for vegan beauty and lifestyle options;
  3. Bolder choices in hair color
  4. Growing popularity in metrosexual or male grooming practices; and
  5. Increasing alternative sources of beauty and cosmetics in the market.

Clearly, natural beauty is in; while artificial/synthetic and unsustainable manufacturing practices are out and rightly so. It’s high time to explore healthier and more eco-friendly options for our skin and for the environment. This is what BeLagu Naturals strongly stands for.

With so many cosmetic products wanting to grab our attention wherever we go, how can we best identify if a skincare product is indeed natural? 

Dr. Joshua Zeichner, dermatologist and the director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital, said that natural skin care is:

  • Fragrance-free;
  • Dye-free;
  • Paraben-free;
  • Sulfate-free;
  • Phthalate-free; and has
  • Naturally-sourced, botanical ingredients with therapeutic effects on the skin.

Now that we better understand the benefits of natural skin care, let’s dive into BeLagu Naturals’ hero products. These are made with only the finest natural ingredients such as potent mushrooms to create a highly effective skincare routine! 

BeLagu Naturals’ Four Hero Products 

For Smoother, Youthful Skin: BeLagu Collagen Boosting Night Cream + Bakuchiol

A beautiful day starts (and ends) with a beautiful night skincare routine. BeLagu Natural’s collagen-boosting night cream does wonders for your skin. Experience all of nature’s goodness and feel the difference. 

This collagen-boosting night cream gives the following benefits to your skin:

  • Anti-aging
  • Soothing
  • Firming
  • Tightening
  • Plumping

This luxurious product is made of these star ingredients: cordyceps mushrooms and bakuchiol. 

Cordyceps are adaptogenic mushrooms that are native to the Himalayas. It’s mostly responsible for the night cream’s soothing and anti-aging benefits. 

On the other hand, bakuchiol is a natural alternative to retinol. Bakuchiol is nature’s retinol with lesser risks of its side effects.

More than that, the BeLagu collagen-boosting night cream is also PEG-free, vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, synthetic fragrance-free and clean/non-toxic. What’s not to love about this pampering night cream?

To use our Collagen Boosting Night Cream + Bakuchiol, just apply a pea-sized amount to your face and neck after cleansing and toning. Gently massage the cream in a circular and upward motion, focusing on areas where you have fine lines or wrinkles. Avoid applying any cream on your eye and mouth area. 

For best results, layer this product over BeLagu Moisture Replenishing Cream. By incorporating our Collagen Boosting Night Cream + Bakuchiol into your evening skincare routine, you’ll support your skin’s natural collagen production and wake up to youthful-looking skin. 

For Glowing, Even Skin: BeLagu Rapid Brightening Serum + Tranexamic Acid 

Truly, BeLagu’s Rapid Brightening Serum does just that. It works rapidly to brighten your skin’s dark spots in just 14 days!

How, might you ask? It’s all thanks to the carefully-picked wonder ingredients: shiitake mushrooms mixed with tranexamic acid, among other key ingredients such as fullerene and ferulic acid.

Let’s put a spotlight on the star of the show: shiitake mushrooms. This is what is traditionally called as nature’s elixir of life. With shiitake mushrooms in this skin serum, this natural beauty product can be used to brighten skin and treat dark spots, acne, scars and other concerns for skin discoloration.

Add tranexamic acid to the mix and you’ve got a product that also whitens skin and repairs sun damage, to name just a few of its more potent effects.

  • Tranexamic Acid: This ingredient has been clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots by blocking the production of melanin. While there’s nothing wrong with melanin as it is the pigment that gives our skin its color, it can lead to uneven skin tone and dark spots when produced in excess.

For Dewy, Moisturized Skin: BeLagu Dewy Moisture Replenishing Cream 

If you’re constantly dealing with dryness, rough patches, or just want to give your skin a boost of moisture, our Dewy Moisture Replenishing cream is definitely the perfect solution!

Let’s take a closer look at the principal ingredients that make this cream so effective. 

  • Sodium Hyaluronate: This ingredient has a unique ability to hold up 1,000 times its weight in water, making it a powerful hydrating agent. By binding water to the skin, it helps keep it plump, supple, and hydrated. A study from 2011 has even shown that the topical application of sodium hyaluronate can improve hydration and elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 
  • Aquaxyl: A complex of natural sugars derived from plants, Aquaxyl is a hydrating ingredient that works by regulating water circulation in the skin. It helps prevent water loss, boosts moisture levels, and improves the skin’s barrier function. A recent study has shown that this ingredient can improve skin hydration, reduce roughness, and increase suppleness. 
  • Lingonberry Extract: This extract is derived from the lingonberry fruit, which is known for its high antioxidant content. Antioxidants help in defending the skin from the harm caused by free radicals, which can accelerate the aging process. Lingonberry extract also contains vitamin C, which helps brighten the skin and improve overall skin tone. 
  • Snow Mushroom Extract: Also known as Tremella fuciformis, this mushroom extract is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine for its numerous health and beauty benefits. But what makes this ingredient particularly useful in skincare is its ability to act as a natural humectant. 

In fact, snow mushroom extract is an excellent ingredient for boosting skin hydration because it can hold up to 500 times its weight in water. By holding onto this moisture, this ingredient helps deliver deep hydration to your skin, reducing the appearance of dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles.

To use the Dewy Moisture Replenishing Cream, apply a small amount to your face and neck after cleansing and toning. Gently massage onto your face, neck, and decolletage using upward, circular motions. Use twice daily, in the morning and evening, for the best results. Level up your skincare routine even more by applying this product after BeLagu’s Youth Defense Serum.

With Dewy Moisture Replenishing Cream’s powerful combination of hydrating and nourishing ingredients, this product is a must-have for anyone looking to achieve a radiant, dewy complexion.
