MAPLE BARK EXTRACT PROTECTS DELICATE SKIN
This cream is made with anti-inflammatory maple bark extract, a by-product of the wood industry. It is sourced from maple forests in Southern Quebec in Canada. Nothing represents nature better than trees. Bark is the protective “skin” of the tree, here we are reusing it in the same way.. to protect and nourish our skin. The maple extract is rich in antioxidants and acts as an anti-inflammatory, meaning that it reduces redness and helps skin appear brighter. It is also helps strengthen the skin barrier and boost collagen production.
CUCUMBER EXTRACT HYDRATES TIRED OR PUFFY SKIN
Cucumber extract is considered a skin superfood. Cucumber slices are often placed over the eyes during facials as the ingredient is extremely gentle, and therefore great to use on the delicate sensitive skin around the eyes! It is also an astringent, meaning it tightens and firms your skin to revitalize it and help reduce the appearance of the signs of aging. Cucumber extract contains proteins, lipids, Vitamin C, and a variety of minerals, meaning that it moisturises deeply and leaves the skin feeling smooth. It’s an ideal ingredient for helping to soothe and relieve puffy skin.
ANTIOXIDANT-RICH COFFEE EXTRACT HELPS BRIGHTEN DARK CIRCLES
Coffee is jam-packed full of skin friends, including antioxidants like good ol’ Vitamin E. High amounts of Vitamin E and other essential nutrients found in coffee help to soothe and moisturise your skin. Caffeine is one of the most popular ingredients you can use to reduce eye puffiness and dark circles. Its anti-inflammatory properties decrease swelling by constricting blood vessels under the eye.
How to use
Press the pump once to release a small amount of cream onto your finger tips. Dab onto the delicate eye area and allow the cream to soak into the skin.

Nature gives us lots of wonderful ingredients that make our skin healthier and more radiant – like used coffee grounds and brewed chai tea spices. But they often end up going to landfill. Why should all that good stuff go to waste? It shouldn’t. That’s why, at UpCircle, we elevate leftover natural ingredients, bringing them back to life as beauty products your skin will love.
The circular economy sits at the heart of what we do – we even named ourselves after it! UpCircle also hints at ‘upcycling’, the process of making something better from things that already exist. Our ultimate mission is to leave the world better than we found it by transforming ingredients that would otherwise be discarded into natural, organic beauty products – better for you, better for the world.
