Entyze brings you 100% natural skincare products that are handmade in small batches with no chemicals, no additives and no BS…just results! 

This natural skincare brand came to be through the desire of living clean and the rooted belief of quality over quantity. Entyze takes pride in cultivating a line of beautifully designed, thoughtfully sourced, simplified, luxurious yet affordable skin care for your skin to love. The products created are absolutely safe for skin and do not contain phthalates, parabens or sulfates. (Plus they’re made in the USA!)

We asked their founder, Minu, to dive deep into her brand and share more about why she loves clean beauty, her favorite products, and to debunk the infamous myth: can you use oils for oily skin?

 

 

What’s your favorite part about running Entyze?

This is a difficult question to answer because I love everything about Entyze. If I had to pick one my favorite part would be sourcing the ingredients and making the products. Our intention is to make safe, clean products for us, our family and the society we live in. The secret ingredient that goes into all our products is: LOVE.

What sets Entyze apart from other lines on the market today?

We are one of the few clean beauty brands with a social cause. I grew up in a country where people suffer from poverty and who are unable to provide good education for their children. This results in very few options when they reach adulthood. During my volunteering days, I came across a woman, Lakshmi, who was planning on getting her 13 year old daughter married for the simple reason that it was getting difficult for them to pay their way due to lack of opportunities. Lakshmi’s husband was a daily wage worker, an alcoholic who ended up spending all his money on buying booze and beating up his family. For Lakshmi, getting her daughter married so young meant one less mouth to feed at home. She didn’t mind educating her son, but the thought of educating her daughter who was excelling in her education seemed like a waste of money. If Lakshmi was better educated, or if her daughter completed her education, they would be able to stand up for themselves, and be able to put an end to the domestic abuse or child marriage. There are many women like Lakshmi. Our goal is to empower them by providing educational opportunities to those who have no access to schooling. It is a cause which is very close to my heart.

What was the first product available to customers to purchase?

The first products that we started with were our Body Polish & Lotion Bars – both are still available on our website today.

Of the products you make, which is your favorite?

I use all the products in our line, and I love them all. However my favorites are the Rose Hydrating Face Mist and the Wild Petal Sangria Luxury Face Oil. I use both every day. I also absolutely love the Green Tea Mojito Clay Mask. (I use this once a week.)

Any beauty/wellness myths you’d like to bust?

I have customers who have asked me this question a lot: “can oils be used on oily skin?
The answer is….yes! You can use oils even if you have oily skin. Swap your heavy moisturizer for face oil, which penetrates just as much without leaving a residue, and gives skin that beautiful, healthy glow.

The other question I get asked a lot is: “I have acne-prone skin; will oils not just make it worse?
It depends on which oil and on what combination you’re applying it in. As long as it’s non-comedogenic (products that don’t block your pores) the right kind of face oil can result in a radiant and hydrated complexion. Dry, dehydrated skin will crinkle up and show lines faster and deeper than hydrated skin, which will stay plump and taut. Oils will stop dryness and lock in moisture.
