How Halo42 Learned About Copaiba

Tim Quinn Finds out Copaiba Saved Mark Turnipseed's Life

Tim Quinn and Mark Turnipseed in PeruThere’s one thing that ties all of Halo42’s products together: The power of Copaiba. You’ll find it in Halo 42’s Face and Body Oil Spray, Anti-aging Eye Oil, Face Cleanser and Body Wash. Back when Tim and Mark were researching ingredients for the Halo42 product line, they stumbled across one that had saved Mark's life after a diagnosis with COPD. The Doctors told him he would be on oxygen by the age of 36, but luckily his ex-wife taught him about copaiba, an oil that can relieve cardiovascular stress. After explaining this to Tim, their adventures took them to the headwaters of the Amazon in Peru, where they learned about Copaiba, a precious resin with health benefits for the skin. Its history is steeped in ancient wisdom and local experts taught them about Copaiba’s properties. It’s known to regenerate collagen, reduce the appearance of blemishes, even fade discolorations from hyperpigmentation. And that’s why Copaiba is a main ingredient in Halo 42’s clean beauty line.

So Where Does Copaiba Come From?

So where does Copaiba come from? It’s inside the trunk of several leguminous South American trees. It’s been around since ancient times, being used by native people for a variety of things. As modern culture gets back to its roots and begins to look to the Old World for natural remedies, we’ve discovered the science behind Copaiba is centered around its anti-inflammatory properties, slowing down the amount of oxygen radicals that can lead to cell damage. Imagine taking that aspect and applying it to skincare. Suddenly, you can expect more from your Anti-Aging Eye Oil when it comes from Halo42. So long fine lines, and hello, soft, supple skin. Halo42 Anti-aging Eye Oil also minimizes puffiness and dark circles. By blending Copaiba with jojoba oil, calendula officinalis flower oil, organic rosemary leaf extract and tocopherol shield, Halo42 Anti-aging Eye Oil is packed with potent antioxidants to help you achieve a well hydrated, rested under eye appearance.

Works with Make-Up

Work Halo42’s Anti-aging Eye Oil into your makeup routine, too. As highlighted in a recent New Beauty article, Tim says if you want a glowing, youthful complexion at any age, the secret lies in skin preparation. “I love doing a radiant, natural look with subtle enhancements.” After applying the hydrating eye oil, keep things dewy with foundation and top with a drop of Halo42 Face and Body Elixir. Apply foundation with a damp Beauty blender and you’re ready to face the day, like Tim did for Christie Brinkley on her Red Carpet night published in people magazine.

Copaiba antimicrobial benefits and more

Copaiba also helps heal wounds with antimicrobial properties. A study in 2016 showed it inhibited bacterial growth even in low concentrations against the bacterial strain staphylococcus aureus. And there’s proof it provides pain relief, too. When mixed with a muscle salve and massaged onto an ailing area, Copaiba offers relief from arthritis. Toss in how this study shows how it can help reduce the size of bites and bumps from parasites that cause leishmaniasis and Copaiba might just be the cure-all we never knew how much we truly needed. 

Taking those aspects and combining it with Halo42’s Body Wash brings a whole new aspect to washing away the impurities in your day. Combining Copaiba with betaine and L-arginine brings a radiant, youthful glow to your daily showering routine. The healing aromatherapy infused in the body wash completes the experience. If your body wash can help heal, protect and tap into ancient properties, why would you pick anything other than Halo42?

Through Pilates, Ginger believes you can think more clearly, overcome stress, feel better about your physical appearance and heal injuries and mental hurdles. It’s these reasons why she is dedicating her life to helping others through Pilates. Plus, she thinks toning up muscles, particularly abs, is a pretty rewarding payoff, too.
