If you are looking to add berries to your treatment menu, the following are industry suppliers’ products that incorporate the tasty morsels. Please note, however, this is not a comprehensive product list, so always be on the lookout for berries in the ingredients lists of your product choices.

The Norwegian Antioxidant Neutralizing Masque from YG Laboratories contains both acai and goji berry, and goji berry also helps soothe the skin in a line of Murad products for redness and sensitivity, including the Recovery Treatment Gel and Correcting Moisturizer SPF 15. Also, Sircuit Cosmeceuticals’ Cool Lychee Wa uses the goji berry.
Bearberry is present in the Herbal Soak from Nordic Care. Additionally, Éminence Organic Skin Care includes bearberry in its Stone Crop Serum, Stone Crop Hydrating Gel and Cucumber Eye Gel, and it also uses gooseberry as part of its Gooseberry Black Currant Serum.
Blueberry is offered in a range of spa products, including CosMedix’s Blueberry Jessner Peel and Blueberry Smoothie, the MyChelle Blueberry Antioxidant Mask and YG Laboratories’ Norwegian Blueberry & Honey Hydrating Masque. Éminence also offers a line of products merging blueberry with soy—and often raspberry, as well—with a night recovery cream, sugar scrub, body wash and slimming body wrap being among those available.
