Trilogy Age Proof Booster Serum
By Michael Hepworth
Trilogy Booster Serum from New Zealand is now available in the United States through the beauty website Beatorium, a company now well known for its championing of little known (at least in the USA) brands. Thicker than most serums I have tried, it is quite effective on dry skin first thing in the morning before you put on your moisturizer or make up. The Rosehip oil is the key ingredient in this serum, just as it is in most of Trilogy’s other products, and the natural oil is extracted from the seeds and fruit of wild grown rosehips and applied topically to the face or body.
Priced at a very reasonable $44 (even though the bottle at 0.67 fl oz does not last very long), we found this serum to be an excellent value. The official name is actually Trilogy Age Proof CoQ10 Booster Serum, and it certainly lives up to its name. The serum contains concentrated doses of vitamins and antioxidants including Tamanu, that provides optimum cellular renewal and should be applied once in the morning and once at night.
I am not sure what the percentage of Tamanu is in the serum, but this is an oil with rather magical healing powers. Extracted from the nut kernels from the Tamanu tree which is only found in Vanuatu, combined with the rosehip oil and other ingredients, makes this a powerful serum.
The New Zealand and English beauty press love the fact that the product contains 100% organic rose-hip oil which is about as good as it gets. The organic certification comes from Bio-Gro of New Zealand and it is also 100% vegetarian. It also means no parabens, petrochemicals, PEGs, pesticides, synthetic colors or surfactants.
Launched in 2002 by two enterprising women, the Rosehip Oil continues to win awards in various beauty competitions, the latest being Harpers Bazaar which awarded it the 'Best Organic Rosehip Oil.' Also good to know is that $1 is donated from every sale to the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation.
