Urth Beauty does not provide much information about why it provides facial products, but their products speak for themselves, ranging from ginseng-rich facial ashes to natural scrubs infused with SPF 15. The price is one of their main selling points, followed by the ingredients used to create their products. With products rarely going over the $40.00 mark, Urth Beauty is very affordable, and their Asian-inspired ingredients also give it some interest among environmentally-aware consumers. Most of their products consist of scrubs and exfoliants however, and only offer a few creams that claim to cure skin issues as a result of harsh environmental issues (these creams are not necessarily used for reducing wrinkles, as an example). Urth Beauty is dedicated towards improving all skin types, regardless of age, so this is not necessarily a line geared towards anti-wrinkle care.
It should also be noted Urth Beauty is widely available online, despite the lack of information about their actual company. Amazon currently sells most of their products, complete with detailed testimonials (most products have received four out of five stars) and detailed information about each product’s purpose. According to them, they do indeed contain natural and botanical ingredients, but there is also an increased presence of not-so beneficial natural ingredients. Urth Beauty does not claim to have any anti-wrinkle ingredients, so we will evaluate its other benefits as a sun protectant and exfoliator.
According to Urth Beauty’s retailers, all of their ingredients feature ginseng, white tea, green tea, rice, tea tree oil, and vitamins A, C, and D. Ginseng is commonly cited as a powerful Asian remedy in their products, but actual studies say this root has no epidermal effects on the skin. Its only proven effects is to help stimulate arousal, which obviously will not benefit anybody looking for skin-related relief. White tea and Green Tea have similar issues — their effects are not skin-based. Both contain a healthy amount of antioxidants, which some skincare companies say help improve the skin’s appearance due to the elimination of free radicals caused by antioxidant use. The issue here are the findings here have only been tested on a dietary level; its effects when used topically cannot be confirmed at this time. The only ingredient that specifically impacts the skin’s appearance is Vitamin E. This vitamin is essential for healthy skin care and also nourishes the skin with proper antioxidants, making this a popular choice for many skincare companies. Vitamin E alone will not completely improve the appearance of skin, however.
- Contains radical-fighting antioxidants.
- Creams also contain SPF 15 for blocking out harmful UV rays.
- Ginseng has no confirmed effects on the skin.
- They currently do not host their own website, making it difficult to attain further information.
- Products may be too general to treat actual skin issues — a more directed approach with more effective ingredients would help.
The Bottom Line
Urth Beauty contains a wide variety of Asian ingredients in their products, but unfortunately these products do not help improve the skin’s appearance. Purchasing Urth Beauty products is easy, however, and for those seeking general skin creams that protect against harmful skin rays, this may be one choice to consider. Don’t expect to see specialized relief, however, as Urth Beauty does not claim to have any.
