SKIN RECOVERY SERUM
HOW REGENERATIVE FARMING COULD LEAD TO BETTER BEAUTY PRODUCTS
"At this skin-care brand's lush farms in Costa Rica, regenerative practices are transforming degraded land into a verdant paradise of bees, birds, and plants. Farmers use crop rotation and ground cover to grow herbs such as Fridericia chica and Hamelia patens for Thrive’s Skin Recovery Serum. Cofounder Alex McIntosh says that these methods produce more potent extracts than a conventional approach. A 2022 study did find that regeneratively grown crops boast a higher nutrient density."
