Eat the D.E. Ingredients

Posted by Alex Sanger on

If you follow us on social media (which we hope you do by now!), you’ve hopefully noticed that we are big proponents of clean eating. In fact, we often use the very same ingredients in our food as we do in our skincare products. Pumpkin, raspberry, blueberry, oh my — there are so many natural options that are deliciously nourishing, both inside and out. 

Just like we encourage you to take a look at your beauty cabinet and toss toxic ingredients, we also believe in investigating what’s in your fridge and throwing out the processed nonsense. And, please, just because something is healthy does not mean it’s not fun. Blueberry mojitos, anyone? Or how about a vibrant, colorful breakfast bowl? This is the tasty stuff a happy, well-rounded life is made of. 

To help refresh your routine in the kitchen, we’ve outlined some of our favorite recipes that call upon D.E.’s powerful, natural ingredients below. 

Blueberry extract is used in our creamy Pekee Bar — and also in this delicious mojito

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

It's an important component of our TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum and of a gorgeous breakfast bowl.
