Their mantra is “maximum effect on your skin, minimum effect on our environment,” and that is exactly what Trilogy is all about. This New Zealand line is a pioneer in the natural space, and founded on the love of rosehip oil. This month we're hosting Trilogy events in New York and San Francisco with mini facials and skin consultations. We took a moment to interview Corrine Morley, Trilogy’s in-house beauty expert from New Zealand to tells us more about how the company began, the power behind their ingredients, and what product to start using ASAP.
How did Trilogy get started?
Trilogy was founded in 2002 by two New Zealand sisters, Sarah and Cath, after they discovered the amazing skin-loving benefits of rosehip oil. The sisters launched our original line with five products, all based on rosehip oil, and then the story grew from there. We started exploring more pure plant oils and botanical actives and have been formulating beautiful, effective and unique natural skincare with them ever since.
Why Rosehip Oil?
With its excellent ability to nourish and moisturize even the driest of skin, Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is the natural way to achieve and maintain healthy, glowing skin. It’s a fantastic moisturizer and helps improve the appearance of stretch marks, scars and wrinkles. Readily accepted and absorbed by the skin, rosehip oil won’t clog or irritate pores and helps to promote normal, healthy skin cell function. It can help to regulate the skin's own oil production, so it can be beneficial for re-balancing oily skin. Because pure Certified Organic Rosehip Oil has no fragrance or preservative added, it’s great for sensitive skin too.
How does Trilogy select their ingredients?
We’re driven by discovery and we work only with nature. There’s a huge and growing demand for skincare which is cruelty-free, non-GMO and free from petrochemicals and silicone oils. We source our ingredients from all over the world and select only the highest quality natural actives which offer proven performance, backed up by robust manufacturer data. The concentrations of these potent ingredients in our formulations are the reason Trilogy products deliver results. These days, thanks to constant innovation in natural and organic skincare, you can get the same, or indeed better, results without resorting to synthetics. There are some incredibly effective botanical ingredients, backed up with strong clinical data, which simply weren’t available a few years ago.
For customers starting to make the switch to clean beauty, what Trilogy product do you recommend?
I’d recommend starting with one of our certified organic beauty oils – Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ or CoQ10 Booster Oil, depending on your skin’s needs. They’re incredibly nourishing, hydrating and help restore skin’s natural vitality and radiance. Just three drops, twice a day, will have your skin glowing with health in no time.
