Bonberi - Jenna Levine of LINNÉ Botanicals - February 2018

"As early as the first grade, I loved potions and natural skincare," recalls Jenna Levine, founder of the cult natural beauty line, “When studying ancient Egypt, I had elected to recreate some of the beauty rituals practiced by Cleopatra. And while the edible face masks I crafted were designed to make my mother feel nourished and beautiful, I believe it was an attraction to the alchemy and a desire to uncover ethnobotanical histories that truly fueled this experimentation.”

 

The Moment - The Beauty of Plants - January 2018

"The biggest point of difference between shopping for traditional skincare and shopping for clean skincare is that clean skincare takes a lot more research, thought and consideration. It’s not always as simple as picking up the prettiest bottle or the one that advertises the most unbelievable claims. Admittedly, it’s a lot of hard work. Our mission at The Moment is to make that process easier on you by bringing forward the clean brands we love, and most importantly, giving you the power to be your own advocate for clean beauty. Yet still, there are a lot of clean skincare terms and questions we’ve yet to dissect (IE. what exactly is wildcrafted), so we’ve asked Jenna Levine, Founder of an absolutely incredible botanics based skincare line called LINNÉ Botanicals, to lend her thoughts. Actually, Levine is even more than a founder, she’s actually crazy knowledgable and passionate about plant science. Having studied botany, herbal medicine, yoga, massage therapy, Ayurvedic traditions, and Chinese medicine (just to name a few of her hobbies), we knew Levine was the right person to clear the air. Plus we get to hear her speak passionately about her favorite subject, which is obviously the best."

 "Since we are not scientists or formulators ourselves, there was no better person to talk to than our friend and Founder of LINNÉ Botanicals, Jenna Levine. Levine is a clean-beauty power house, and her exuberance for plant knowledge shines through her elegantly formulated skincare line."

 

Live The Process - A Moment with LINNÉ - December 2017

Live The Process Peace Lily Broken Vase

"To produce effective, safe skincare, it is vital to understand both skin science and plant science. Our namesake, Carl Von Linné, was both a physician and a botanist. In his time, training in botany was part of the medical curriculum and every doctor had to prepare and prescribe drugs derived from medicinal plants. In the 1800s, medicinal plant use was fundamental to human health."

 

VOGUE - 10 Perfectly Packaged Holiday Beauty Gifts—Wrapping Paper Not Required - DECEMBER 2017

"And for her small-batch skin-care range, Linné, Jenna Levine set calligraphy brush to paper, sketching a shiso leaf and enlarging it for featherlight graphics that reveal the hand of the maker. With a no-wrap holiday season, the mantra might as well be this: Waste not, want."

“A lot of people for many years were using all these fancy French products, and a lot of them are full of chemicals, and it's kind of like, well what are you putting on your skin? I think that's where we are getting to now, this big shift with people wanting to go back to using things from the earth. It’s sort of like, well let’s have a look, can we pronounce the names on things on the back of our products? And if we can’t, let’s think again.”

Hey Woman- Julia Alfert's Beauty Routine- JUNE 2017

"I use a mask once or twice a week when I have time. Or, better said, I use two of them: the Scrub Face Mask by Linné Botanicals, which smells like chamomile, bergamot, and natural honey and cares for your skin while cleansing and polishing it thoroughly thanks to fine granules"

"What do you get when you combine the ingredients of a multivitamin, the energy of a crystal garden, and the ease of a hydrosol? The answer is Linné’s clever skincare hybrid, Refresh Facial Mist, which is fast becoming a favorite of fashion’s elite, with style stars like Kate Foley, Michelle Violy Harper, and the Hadid sisters (Alana gifted it to Gigi and Bella this past Christmas) amongst its earliest adopters. And in a time where it’s hard to decipher which products are truly beloved and which are funded celebrity advertisements, Linné cuts out the guesswork by doing zero paid influencer marketing—meaning their fans are as organically grown as the ingredients in the bottle..."

 

The Fashion Spot- The Best Serums For Every Skin Type and Budget- JUNE 2017

Jenni Kayne- Fall in Love with LINNÉ Farm-Fresh Skincare- JUNE 2017

Yoga Today- How to Spring Clean Your Routine with ‘Skin Food Talk- MAY 2017

"Just like food your skincare should switch seasonally. If you are noticing the produce changing at your local farmer’s market it’s time to also change up your skincare. Winter skincare may feel necessary for places where weather is still fluctuating, but as your body starts adjusting to different environmental components, your skin could start reacting differently. Start by adding more antioxidants to your daily topical routine such as vitamins E and C to help protect and nourish your skin from free radical scavengers. This will help your natural barrier protection from potential allergens that are being released from blooming spring flowers and grasses this time of year. We love to keep the Linne refresh face mist on hand to spray throughout the day as a boost for the face with its calming and hydrating ingredients."

Observer - 25 May Beauty Launches You Need to Know - MAY 2017

"LINNÉ IS ONE TO WATCH, in part due to the incredibly careful consideration founder Jenna Levine puts into each and every batch of product, all of which she still makes, meticulously, by hand. The newest addition to her line is this serum—which by the way, is actually a serum—some natural brands have an odd tendency to call oils serums. It should be noted that it smells incredible—citrusy, and refreshing. This is one of those serums that’s just all around good for skin health: it hydrates, strengthens capillaries, and fights inflammation. But it’s especially good for fighting any sort of scarring or hyperpigmentation. Kadaku plum, hibiscus, white cypress, and tea tree are all antioxidants and sources of vitamin C, working to get at those issues."

"I'm obsessed with Linné, a relatively new beauty discovery.

The latter comes from obsessive sourcing and simple ingredient lists made by the line’s glowy crafter, Jenna Levine, whose idea of natural beauty is one we couldn’t agree with more"

"THIS IS UNLIKE ANY OTHER BODY WASH YOU'VE EVER TRIED. Don’t be deterred from its black color (it’s just the activated charcoal)—it’s rejuvenating, exfoliating, and nourishing without using any detergents (which dry out the skin). The smell reminds me of rich licorice—it’s a great pep-you-up scent that turns your shower into a more indulgent, spa-like ritual. And it leaves your skin feeling way softer than I’d expected."

My other mantra is "hydration, hydration, hydration." I start the day with apple cider vinegar and with a dash of local honey, and then I drink lots of water to flush my system early in the day.

INTO THE GLOSS- WHY AM I BREAKING OUT? A GUIDE- OCTOBER 2016

Why am I breaking out Into The Gloss
I've spent most of my life with dry skin and no pimples—but for the last six to 12 months, I've had a new couple of bumps every few weeks. I suspect a couple of culprits: not moisturizing enough, while simultaneously not knowing what to do about hormonal oiliness. After what feels like countless rounds of trial and error, I've landed on an oil targeted at balancing oil production. It helps treat the problem before it starts, while still hydrating at the same time. —EF

DEPARTURES- PERSONAL EFFECTS- OCTOBER 2016

"To cull down my long list of personal obsessions, I decided to focus on my beauty and fitness must-haves. I recently drove four days in the California Mille, a 1,000-mile vintage car rally through Northern California, in a 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster with the top down the entire time. Needless to say, my face got sunburned and my lips dried out, despite the numerous Chap Stick applications. As soon as I returned home I applied Linné Botanicals Smooth Body Balm all over and within a day, the dry layers of skin were exfoliated and the smooth hydrated skin appeared; it was especially noticeable on my lips. Linné body balm was my go-to before the trip for its fresh scent, but now even more so, for its super-hydrating properties."

Founded by the daughter of a surgeon and a healthy cook, Linné Botanicals is the brainchild of Jenna Levine, who began creating skin-care products in her kitchen at a young age (which were tested on her mom and sister). After receiving her certification in native plant botany and herbal medicine, Levine experimented with acne treatments for her sister using botanicals and potent chemical compounds—to much success. (Um, best sister ever?) This led her to share her creation with others, hence her line of complexion-boosting bottles filled with seasonal ingredients and native plants.
