Youth to the People launched a new cream today–Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream will be the second cream to the line. In the face of stress, adapt. This deeply moisturizing cream is actively soothing, using powerful adaptogenic herbs to combat free radicals, fight skin fatigue, and restore depleted skin. Less stress, less inflammation, more balance, more youth.
Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream is the final product of almost 2 years of testing, refining, and obsessing over the power of adaptogens. Say goodbye to skin stress with this deeply hydrating bled of peptides and adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms. Battle the effects of environmental pollutants and see your best skin yet.
Adaptogens are natural substances that helps the body adapt. In general this is adapting to stress. I’ve been super obsessed with mushrooms in skincare so this launch couldn’t have come at a better time. Reishi mushrooms are adaptogenic contain a high amount of polysaccharides which are responsible for the skins natural ability to hold onto water and hydrate. This aids in skin renewal and repair. Reishi mushrooms have antioxidant properties, are anti-inflammatory, reduce free radical damage and promote cell regeneration. Mushrooms can also help brighten the skin.
The other adaptogenic herbs in this cream are rhodiola (boosts skin strength, fights fatigue, increase stress resistance), holy basil (Part of mint family, high in antioxidants) & ashwagandha (Indian ginseng, high in antioxidants and amino acids, a powerful healing herb used to treat stress, anxiety and exhaustion). Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream also contains a peptide complex designed to calm and de-stress skin. Add in some sunflower oil, aloe, squalane, jojoba seed oil, shea butter, vitamin E, allantoin and a hint of sweet almond and borage oils for some much needed moisture.

I love the simple glass packaging of YTTP. The texture manages to be lightweight yet super nourishing all without any greasy or heavy feel. It’s a fabulous & dreamy texture. This works well right now as a night cream during the summer for my skin. This will be nice as a day cream in the winter. This cream is soothing, hydrating, nourishing all without the heavy or greasy feel. I love that it’s basically fragrance free. I think this cream will please a lot of people. It has a versatile texture that’s easy to layer. I experienced no breakouts or adverse effects while using. I was left with happy, healthy, hydrated skin after using this cream. You get a 2 oz jar for $58 and this launches tomorrow.
