Beauty and The Bean

If you think soy is just something found in your morning latte, your skin may be missing out.

Studies suggest soy works to reduce blotchiness and discoloration, as well as moisturizing skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines. That's because soybeans contain a host of isoflavones, potent antioxidants that have been proven to improve skin tone, reduce hyperpigmentation and even improve skin texture.


Decidedly Old Fashioned, Deliciously Modern: SoyPure’s Skin Care Cleansing Bars

Mom used to use good-old fashioned glycerin soap, so when we first found SoyPure's Skin Care Cleansing Bars, we were filled more with nostalgia than desire. One try, and we were reminded why Mom's skin still looks so smashing 30 years later.

Crafted from 99 percent natural ingredients including 5 percent soy flour, these gentle, fragrance-free bars are paraben-free and ideal for daily use. First, the Detoxifying Bar goes to work as Hawaiian volcano mud salt and organic soy flour work together to unclog pores. Next, the Exfoliating Bar removes the top layer of dead skin cells and encourages skin regeneration. Finally, the Moisturizing Bar calls upon shea butter and cocoa seed butter to even out skin tone, soothe and lightly moisturize.

Turns out, Mom still knows best.

Fresh Brings out the Beauty in Soy

Fresh's most popular cleanser calls upon the power of soy to banish every day impurities and remove makeup.

The soap-free formula promises to help skin retain moisture and elasticity, thanks to a high concentration of isoflavonoids, courtesy of soybean germ extract, a protein-rich extract.
