Everything You Need to Know About Nativa Spa: The Plant-Based Body Care Line Powered by Quinoa

We’ve all heard about the nutritional benefits of quinoa–the South American grain hailed as a superfood thanks to its high nutritional content. But when Brazilian pharmacist Miguel Krigsner discovered this supergrain was just as nourishing for skin as it is for the body, he found inspiration for a new whole beauty approach. Krigsner developed an innovative distillation process to extract the purest oil possible from the grain and created Nativa Spa: a line of plant-based body care powered by quinoa.
Rich in omegas 3, 6 and 9 (quinoa oil has 30 times more than coconut oil, 4 times more than avocado oil, and times more than almond oil), antioxidants, polyphenols, carotenoids like vitamin A, and tocopherols like vitamin E, this oil is also a super emollient, delivering moisture to the skin’s surface for both firm, and smoother skin appearance and strengthens the skin barrier.
Hailing from Brazil, the line naturally focuses on body care and incorporates ingredients including ginseng to boost circulation and up collagen and elastin production to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite, and caffeine to constrict blood vessels and help reduce inflammation and puffiness. Other botanical ingredients such as shea butter, Madagascan vanilla, strawberry, rose water and plum extract provide additional skin health benefits.
Cruelty-free and vegan, all formulas and ingredients adhere to the EU standard for safety, the company donates 1% of all sales to the planet and biodiversity conservation, and uses sustainable practices from start to finish. Here, three of our favorite Nativa Spa products.
