Everything You Need to Know About our New Banana Moisturizer

When you work in the beauty industry, a big part of the job is testing new products. Which can sound like a dream, but all that experimentation can take a toll on our skin. As co-founders of Glow Recipe, we’re constantly trying new formulations to stay on top of what’s new, so we know better than anyone just how much damage all that testing can do. Even if you’re not running your own skin-care line, any beauty fan can attest to the fact that today’s skin-care offerings are packed with actives and acids. And, while all of these ingredients may truly be great for skin, when used all at once, they can lead to irritation and sensitivity. So, it’s understandable that many of our customers wanted us to launch something that could help nourish, heal, and calm stressed-out skin. 

Enter the Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream, the newest addition to the Glow Recipe Skincare family! When we were researching the most healing fruits, we drew inspiration from our personal experience —  we both would snack on bananas before long car rides or flights to ward off motion sickness. Bananas, it turns out, are full of healing ingredients like magnesium, and those benefits work just as well on your skin as they do on your insides! 

While we all know that minerals are amazing for your body as a whole, most of us may not be getting enough of them. When you consume supplements or mineral-rich foods, there’s a chance it won’t all make it past your stomach to give you the direct skin benefits, according to nutritionist Tracy Lockwood Beckerman, MS, RD. Which is where the Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream comes in.

When bananas (which are known for their healing and hydrating properties) are paired with minerals like magnesium, they create a soothing power-duo like no other. Along with banana extract, the magnesium in this formula helps calm irritation, balance moisture levels, and support skin elasticity. Potassium (which is also found naturally in bananas) is in this cream as well, because it does a great job of helping skin retain that moisture. 

Banana Soufflé makes the perfect daily moisturizer for anyone prone to redness or irritation thanks to its calming and anti-inflammatory ingredients like turmeric and cica (i.e. centella asiatica). This means it’s a great way to balance out any routine that’s full of active (or potentially irritating) ingredients. To take this moisture cream to the next level, we included nourishing jojoba oil in the formula, too, which is rich in vitamins B and E to strengthen your skin barrier and prevent inflammation. You’ll also find chia seed and squalane, both of which help to hydrate the skin and protect from moisture loss.

As for the name, we were inspired by our favorite fluffy banana pudding from a local bakery right here in New York City. This moisturizer’s light, whipped texture was modelled after our favorite dessert, giving it a soft and luxurious feel that just sinks into skin. 

Soothing skin care is a great way to give stressed skin a break, whether it’s freaking out from environmental changes, too many active ingredients or even from emotional stress. Try incorporating calming products like the Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream into your skin-care routine as a relaxing self-care moment. We can’t wait for you to try it!
