You are bidding on (1) Brand New & Factory Sealed Bottle of COLLAGEN & ELASTIN SKIN CREAM - 4 oz.PURCHASED THIS MONTH - FRESHEST AVAILABLE*This is a private listing; Your Ebay bid and feedback will remain anoymous and package will ship discretely in unmarked package.Description:Collagen, the Building Block of SkinA natural protein, collagen provides the structural foundation for bones, muscles, skin and more. Think of collagen as the threads in a fabric. When you’re younger, as one thread breaks off, a new one naturally replaces it, so your skin stays smooth, supple and wrinkle-free.But as you age, this process slows down. Your collagen "fabric" starts to break down and it’s not so easily replaced, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles.Elastin Adds ElasticityIf Collagen is a thread, Elastin is the elastic band that keeps the fabric together. It’s what gives your skin the elasticity to snap back after you’ve pinched it. As you can imagine when your elastin levels decrease with age, your skin sags. Just like Collagen, the older you get, the less of this important protein your body produces.But now there’s natural help with Collagen & Elastin Skin Cream. Specially developed to help restore the skin’s structure, tone and elasticity, the rich emollients in this cream leave your face soft, supple and radiant. Your friends will be begging for your secret! Delicately scented, it’s ideal under makeup or alone.Spa Quality IngredientsContains an array of high-quality ingredients including, among others:Soluble Collagen — Strengthens and connects to form a strong foundation for your skin.Hydrolyzed Elastin— This abundant protein supports skin's elasticity and resilience.Soy Protein — An important source of rich amino acids and antioxidants, soy protein helps skin retain moisture and tone.Natural Beeswax — Moisturizes naturally.Natural Vitamin E — Powerful antioxidant that helps to reverse the signs of aging.Natural Lanolin — Moisturizes and protects.Safflower Oil — Helps skin retain moisture and suppleness.About Botanic ChoiceBotanic Spa products are made by Botanic Choice.

Since 1910, customers have trusted Botanic Choice for their health care needs.HistoryThe history of the Indiana Botanic Gardens, Inc., begins in 1910 with the founding of the company by Joseph E. Meyer. Born in Wisconsin in 1878, Joseph Meyer acquired a curiosity about plants and nature at a young age. His father, who was a photographer, often took Joseph out on assignments into forests and fields. From here, Joseph learned a great deal about various aspects of nature. Complications in Joseph’s family and financial life caused him to temporarily step aside from nature and take up a more practical career in printing. Joseph soon found himself in Chicago working for a large printer. Not long after, a strike shut down the printer and Joseph found himself at The Hammond Times.After settling in Hammond, Joseph desired to have a business of his own, preferably something in the printing industry. Giving consideration to his set of skills, Joseph realized that he knew a great deal about printing and even more about nature. A company that sold herbs through a catalog would be a profitable endeavor for Joseph Meyer thanks to his possession of an old printing press and vast knowledge of natural remedies. It was with the blending of these two passions that gave birth to Indiana Botanic Gardens, Inc.From Humble BeginningsThe business, initially called the Indiana Herb Gardens, began in a small cottage in the rear of Joseph Meyer’s Hammond, Indiana home where he started growing and harvesting plants in a vacant lot. In the beginning, the business barely made living expenses for the family. Meyer’s children assisted him with activities like gathering herbs from nearby fields, packaging boxes, feeding the printing press, and binding catalogs with needle and thread.In 1918, the 400-page book, The Herbalist was printed and business expanded. Since the company was now able to sustain itself, it moved from Meyer’s cottage to a more formal and larger building off of Calumet Avenue in Hammond (pictured on the right).Following the success of The Herbalist, a decision was made to create an annual publication. In 1925, The Herbalist Almanac was brought into publication. This almanac was an eclectic booklet that contained a hodge podge of things from listings of the herbs and roots that the company sold to recipes, Indian weather forecasts, treatments for common ailments, popular songs of the day, advice on farming issues and more. In 1979, after fifty-four years of publication, The Herbalist Almanac was retired.The Business ExpandsThe same year that The Herbalist went into publication, Joseph purchased a wild tract of land on the Little Calumet River. The land held a profusion of medicinal plants and virgin forest. In 1926, a beautiful English gabled building was built. This became the home of the newly named Indiana Botanic Gardens, Inc.During the next few years, Joseph traveled to all parts of North America to gather material and information on native plants and their uses. Mail poured in from all over the world including universities, libraries, botanists and people from all ranks of life. In 1932, he traveled to Europe to seek rare herbals.In Joseph Meyer's time self-treatment with herbs was commonly practiced and often necessary due to economic conditions or the scarcity of professional medical help. Mr. Meyer devoted his life to providing herbs to people, and many grateful customers sent letters and recipes extolling the benefits. The Old Herb Doctor was compiled from this information to let other customers know how other customers had used herbs and the good results they obtained from them.The Family Tradition ContinuesEventually the business was passed on to his grandson David Meyer, who is still part of the organization, along with great-grandson Tim Cleland, current president of the company. In 1990, the company moved to nearby Hobart, Indiana and began selling vitamins and other nutritional supplements in addition to bulk herbals. The new Hobart location has a retail store and also sells wholesale products. The bulk of the business continues to be derived from catalogue mail order sales. Indiana Botanic Gardens, Inc., is the largest seller of herbs by mail order in the world. In recent years, the company stopped growing its own herbs and began buying them from suppliers. With the addition of new items and product lines, the company has grown five fold since 1990.Botanic Choice QualityYou Care About Your Health, and So Do TheyIntegrity and quality have been Botanic Choice guiding principles for over 100 years.
