Los Angeles, CA. Jacqueline Trejo, M.D., a mother and doctor of obstetrics and gynecology, is familiar with the various skin care issues pregnant women encounter. Unfortunately, not all mothers experience the lovely “pregnant glow,” but instead combat dull skin and stretch marks. After realizing there was no comprehensive product line that tackled her patients’ issues, Trejo set out to develop her own line, EncintaSkin.
The name comes from the Spanish word for pregnancy, and is a nod to her Peruvian roots as well as the unique Andean3 complex used in the line. As she puts it, “I created this body and facial line for busy women, often mothers of young children, who want to take a proactive stance against some preventable issues that can often harm skin, while still using organic products that are safe for the baby inside.” The products combat everything from tired muscles to sensitive or itchy skin.
Encinta Skin was formulated using Andean botanicals, which are high in omega-3s and antioxidants. These botanicals make up Andean3 Complex, one of the key ingredients in the products. Trejo was introduced to these cell-fortifying oils in her native Peru. According to Trejo, “These ingredients offset inflammation, which can be a major cause of wrinkles and premature aging.”
The line consists of three items for the face (Anti-Aging Facial Creme, Anti-Aging Eye-Lifting Creme, and Multi-Protection and Recovery Sun Creme) and three items for the body (Stretch Mark Oil, Hydrating Body Balm and Leg Massage Serum). Encinta Skin products are USDA-certified as organic. “My patients did not know much about the ingredients in the skin care treatments they were using. It was important to me that everything we used was organic and safe during pregnancy. Women may unwittingly use natural products that actually contain ingredients that should be avoided while pregnant,” she explains.
Encinta Skin will be launching in spring 2014. All products are made in the city of Orange, California.
