Well, I have to be completely honest - this cream was formulated originally and continues to be - for me. I have very dry and sensitive skin (as well as rosacea) and absolutely nothing on the market worked. This works and I have tweaked it down through the years as I start to see tiny little wrinkles, so my research becomes a little more intensive as does the formula. It works - it really does. This is the most effective skin cream available in a natural formula or any formula for that matter! We are using nature’s remedies and they are so much more powerful than all the nanochemicals and synthetics that you see hyped everywhere – nature knows about synergy! That is what nature is all about and we’ve been blessed to capture this awesomeness in this intensive cell-renewal cream. You absolutely WILL NOT FIND any other skin care products in my house - I use, and have used, only Wingsets' Facial Regimen for years now and I believe the health of my skin is probably my best testimonial.
We include a high percentage of Jasmine Green Tea and Rooibos Tea as we have read studies concerning its beneficial skin protecting and antioxidant properties. If you look at our ingredients, you will see that we use certified organic green tea as an organic infusion and put it in again as a botanical extract, plus we’ve added Rooibos tea as well as other herbals for their skin calming and renewing properties. We’ve also added specifically targeted essential oils to combat dry and maturing skin. The essential oils we use have been suggested to be ingredients that can have an obvious affect on the health of your skin and the appearance of wrinkles. These are not “miracle ingredients” that you see advertised everywhere. They are simply essential oils that have proven ability to penetrate deep into the layers of your skin and soothe damaged skin and possibly prevent further damage. They are from nature and because of that your body accepts them as natural. As far back as biblical times Esther used the infused oil of Myrrh, as did Cleopatra and many other well-known beauties. Our formula includes a high percentage of anti-inflammatory (that causes wrinkles and patchy, dry skin) and antioxidant ingredients. Read the ingredients and their properties on our Product Information Page.

New Intensive Cell-Renewing Facial Formula!
Well - I have been continuing my habit (addiction?) of researching skin renewing ingredients. I tweaked this latest batch - again. I took out some redundant antioxidants that were "extracts" and replaced them with real unrefined organic plant oils - full of phytonutrients. I've always included an incredible amount of anti-aging/antioxidant ingredients, all certified organic. I research our ingredients quite carefully to make sure what we're buying is without pesticides or other contaminants, plus we purchase from companies who are eco-friendly and fair trade. We also use the amazing benefits, that are well documented and well researched of green tea, rooibos tea and ginkgo. Our infusions are dark and concentrated and you will notice that this cream is yellow now. I had to reduce some of the Seabuckthorn Berry because it would stain white shirts, and added the new kid on the block that everyone is in love with and for good reasons - Prickly Pear Seed Oil. If you have a company telling you they are putting any significant amounts of these ingredients in their cream and it is pure white – you are only getting a minimum amount of that ingredient. After the emulsion (that’s what making oil and water into a cream is called) cools enough, I add a significant amount of skin-healthy, anti-aging pure unadulterated essential oils – enough that you can get a slight hint of their fragrance. This is a pure, natural fragrance, not what you are probably used to in the synthetic fragrances so prevalent in high end products you find on the shelves today. The phthalates in these fragrances age your skin, cause allergies and make your skin break out. There are NO parabens in our creams – or any of our products – never, ever, ever. Read our blog about why that is.
I use this cream both in the morning and at bedtime, but I have (well...had) very dry skin. It has worked miracles on my skin but I suffered with rosacea until I began to develop my own creams. Now my skin is clear enough that I don’t really have to use a makeup base. For some it will be enough just to put around those dry areas, such as eyes and laugh lines. It’s also a very good cream for hands that are work-worn and chapped. Apply gently and sparingly – a little goes a long way. You will love the natural, clean feel and fragrance of this cream – synthetic fragrances are not good for the sensitive facial skin and we refuse to use them in our facial products – we use only 100% natural essential oils for their therapeutic benefits rather than their aroma.
As with first using any new product, please do a small test on your arm first and perhaps on a small area of your face. We offer sample packs for those who want to try it out first.

Simply a fabulous product.... will definitely be ordering more. Does it come in a 'vat' size ... ? :*"
Hello again Ann,
True to your word, the Hemp Emu Oil Cream is wonderful. My husband uses it on a daily basis and his hands are wonderful now. This is a product I will never be without. Note: Skin Renewal Intensive Facial Complex is new name for Hemp Emu Oil Cream first formulated 8 years ago.
Thanks so much,
First of all, I’d like to than you so much for answering my email — and also for making such an amazing product! I’ll start off by saying that I’ve been researching and using organic skin care products since my early twenties (so about a decade so far), and your Organic Skin Renewal Intensive Facial Complex Cream has just about every ingredient I could want in a successful anti-aging, skin healing product. Also, I don’t think I have used a skin cream this thick, whipped, and buttery since I got my hands on some fresh unrefined shea butter a long time back.
Yesterday, my kitten accidentally scratched my hand fairly intensely. I cleaned it up, made sure it wasn’t bleeding, and after a few hours, I applied a tiny amount of the Facial Complex. When I woke up this morning, the scratch was already much better. And of course the Complex does great things for my eczema and occasional pimples. It’s just so rich and soft. A little bit goes such a long way. I am definitely going to buy more jars in the future.
The Skin Renewal Intensive Facial Complex is my go to for facial care!!! A little goes a long way, so it lasts a long time. Good work, Ann!!! - Eva
The last one that I got, I really love. It smells so good I almost want to eat it. - Mary, Lincoln, NE
LOVVVEEEE 💜💜💜💜 - Lea
