Our Process

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” 

- Lao-Tzu

Culinary Pharmacy vs Laboratory Production

Laboratory produced medicines are vital to curing disease, but creating our skin, scalp, and hair care products via this method shouldn’t be our first choice. When it comes to daily routines, the best assets we have are found in nature. For centuries, fresh fruits and herbs and oils were used to care for our bodies. Nature’s nutrients were treasured as a powerful resource. Modern civilization has lost this connection to nature. From this disconnect, we’ve learned some important lessons: Toxins from laboratory-created beauty products can be absorbed, and in some cases, lead to serious health complications. Aided by advances in skincare research, SHIMMERCHEreturns to our roots. We create our products in a kitchen, not a laboratory. Using refrigeration to keep our whole food ingredients alive, we provide you with skin, scalp, and hair care directly from nature that’s always safe, and completely non toxic.

Vitamin C Infusion

Our innovative, yet time-tested, nine-day Vitamin C Infusion Technique utilizes fermentation to harness whole foods rich in Vitamin C. This process breaks down their molecular structure making them more bioaccessible. Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants. It has been shown to have an anti-aging effect on our skin, scalp, and hair by increasing collagen synthesis, stabilizing collagen fibers, and decreasing collagen degradation. Vitamin C is the primary replenisher of vitamin E, and works synergistically with vitamin E in the protection against environmental damage and aging. 

 

SHIMMERCHEF’s unique production process creates a more stable and permeable Vitamin C for increased nutrient benefits. Our formulation delivers beneficial ingredients like prebiotics, lactic acid, and hyaluronic acid. This increases your skin, scalp, and hair’s capability to fight off bad bacteria, retain moisture, increase collagen production, and improve texture. The result is noticeably healthier, shimmering skin and hair.

Plasters

Culinary plasters have been used medicinally for centuries to bring our body back into balance. Plasters are thick pastes created with potent herbs, oils, spices, and butters. They are applied directly onto the skin to cure wounds or internal ailments. These formulations help speed up the body’s healing process. At SHIMMERCHE we have carefully selected the most powerful ingredients, enhanced them with our innovative Vitamin C Prebiotic Infusion to develop a beauty line that balances, nourishes, and hydrates our skin, scalp, and hair. With repeated use, our plasters supply nutrients that promote cellular rejuvenation and overall vitality. The proof: vibrant skin and hair that looks and feels silky and healthy.
