Everyone has a recommendation for your, but what is best for your own skin type? Taking a stroll down the moisturize aisle in Sephora can feel a touch overwhelming—sure, there’s a product for every skin type under the sun, but who has time to navigate all of that?

Healing dry skin is so important – healthy skin is the foundation for everything!

We know that consuming collagen orally helps repair tissues, from helping boost gut health and expedite workout recovery to strengthening the skin’s matrix. Collagen has shown immense promise in healing chronic wounds, further attesting to its ability to repair. So it’s no surprise that as a decrease in production in collagen occurs as we get older, it can have negative effects on our internal systems as well as our skin.

Enter topical collagen. Algenist’s GENIUS Liquid Collagen is the first ever vegan, plant-based collagen formulation with the highest concentration of active collagen that can help reclaim skin’s youthful glow and bounce.

Large companies are working sustainability into their DNA.

When Gruber's not on sustainable adventures, he's working as a college science professor in NYC to inspire the next generation of mindful explorers. "It only takes one generation to really change mindsets," says Gruber, who credits a steady meditation routine, propensity for adaptogenic tonics, and mindful workout routine as his physical and mental fuel. "Being an explorer and a professor is a nice mix of mind and body. Going on expeditions in the ocean really keeps me wanting to stay fit and do yoga and run and exercise. It's great inspiration, especially when living in a city like New York." Gruber's exploration is marked by an obvious love for the underwater environment and a deep desire to protect it.
