Adding healthy seeds to boost your nutrition is more than a trend, it’s become a lifestyle for many women who want to eat and live right. Although tiny in size, these seeds are packed with nutrients like protein, fiber, iron, vitamins and fatty acids. You knew they were good for your health, now it turns out they’re good for your skin as well.
After years of research and development conducted by Avon in NY, the brand launched the Nutra Effects skin care range with an Active Seeds Complex. Combining chia seeds, Strelitzia extract and pomegranate seeds to the formulas, the Nutra Effects moisturizer range promises skin rejuvenation at its finest.
Based on the Active Seed Complex – a cocktail of powerful seeds, enriched with vitamin E and provitamin B5, Nutra Effects is available in five lines catered for specific skin concerns: Hydration, Balance, Radiance, Ageless and Ageless Advanced.
These moisturizers are paraben, phthalates and dye free, which means they are suitable for sensitive skin and are perfect for this time of the year, when our skin tends to act out. While testing the skin care range, I’ve found all of these moisturizers to be incredibly light in texture, even the ones addressed to mature skin, Ageless and Ageless Advanced.
They sink rapidly into the skin and leave a fresh, velvety finish. I can tell right from the start that they haven’t caused any allergic reactions or break outs on my skin, I no longer have dry patches and my skin feels smooth and hydrated. I think the Hydration range is a good moisturizer for young women, who want to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
Here is a little description of the Nutra Effects moisturizer range from Avon:
Hydration – for normal to dry skin
The Avon Nutra Effects Hydration range is ideal for normal, dry or dehydrated skin. Developed with chia seeds, that have strong humectant properties and retain 12 times more water in the skin. They prevent loss of moisture thereby retaining the skin’s natural moisture. Some compounds also have the ability to actively attract moisture from the atmosphere into the epidermis.
They increase the flexibility of the skin, preventing it from cracking and minimize the irritation sensation accused by those with dry skin. The two moisturizers found in the range – one with SPF 15, are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which aid in replenishing the skin’s own natural protection barrier. They have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, that fight free radicals and prevent premature aging.
Balance – for combination & oily skin
Created for combination & oily skin, prone to acne or breakouts, the Balance range contains a gel moisturizer and a daily moisturizer with SPF 15. Both of them are formulated with a mattifying powder, which absorbs excess sebum, and with chia seeds, that hydrate the skin.
Radiance – for dark spots and dull complexions
This range contains a tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 that boosts radiance, a moisturizer with SPF 20 and a night cream, suitable for those with dark spots and dull complexions. Formulated with Strelitzia seeds, this range diminishes hyper pigmentation and brightens the skin, at the same time boosting collagen production.
Anti-Aging 35+ – for fine lines and wrinkles
Counteract the firsts signs of aging with the new Nutra Effects moisturizer, with pomegranate seeds.

The pomegranate seeds support cellular rejuvenation, boost microcirculation and collagen production.
