Menopause category Cult Beauty

1. MPowder

In China, women use an empowering phrase to describe menopause: they call it ‘The Second Spring’.  {MPowder} believes that the way we experience menopause could be intrinsically linked to nutrition – that our diet can have a significant bearing upon this transitional phase of our lives and the founders have analysed data, and worked with a legion of experts to lessen the symptoms and make the experience, well… easier! Together they’re ‘changing the change’ and encouraging you to take charge of your menopause – there’s nothing hush-hush or taboo about ageing, and MPowder's natural supplement makes it refreshingly, rightfully positive.

2. Pause Well-Aging

Sparked by a hot flush, created by science, {Pause Well-Aging} not only shines a spotlight on the menopause but celebrates beauty in their own terms, affirming that beauty only gets better with age. The brand's innovative formulations meet the unique needs of menopausal skin and the entire range works together in harmony to target key changes that occur during each stage of the menopause. Plus, they’re formulated with Pause Well-Aging's proprietary Pause Complex - a carefully researched fusion of vitamins, antioxidants and peptides to help fuel much-needed collagen production. More than just a skin care brand, Pause Well-Aging is disrupting the age-old conversation (or lack thereof) around menopause, replacing 'anti-ageing' with 'well-ageing' and finally, reaffirming that beauty doesn’t peak at any one point in your life - it keeps evolving. Bravo, we say!

3. Murad

With his interdisciplinary approach to skincare, {Murad} was the first ever Dr-Brand, the first to use Esthetic AHA formulations and the first to add vitamin supplements to a skin care range and they have yet to rest on their laurels. When it comes to menopausal skin this brand is one of the best out there.


4. Menopoised

Rooted in the principles of Chinese medicine, and inspired by the ancient Chinese practice of Yang Sheng — meaning ‘nourishment of life’ — {Menopoised} is on a mission to support the lives of people experiencing menopause. Since menopause is a natural life transition that so many of us will go through, Menopoised offers all-natural remedies ranging from carefully formulated aromatherapy oils to Menopause Magnets that help you cool off when you're feeling the heat. Each is designed assist in managing the physical, mental and emotional impact of menopausal hormonal changes, no matter what comes your way.

5. Solgar

Purveyors of wellness-enhancing creations for upwards of 70 years, {Solgar’s} commitment to helping you live your best life has resulted in supplements made in small batches with only the finest, all-natural extracts. Pioneers when it comes to nutrition, Solgar's {Female Multiple} is a must-try. A cocktail of 27 key nutrients for optimal womanly wellness, these tablets are great for ensuring you’re getting enough of the essential vitamins and minerals you need to keep our mind and body fighting fit.

6. VENeffect

As women age, our oestrogen levels decline, which also reduces collagen production (boo hiss), causing our skin to lose elasticity – and find fine lines, wrinkles and other tell-tale signs of getting older. The first skin care line to address this specifically, {VENeffect} is the brainchild of dream sister act Rebecca Booth, M.D. (an acclaimed gynaecologist) and Cecil Booth (a beauty expert with 20 years of industry experience). Together, the sisters crafted a range starring a complex of 100% natural, plant-based ‘phyto-oestrogens’, which mimic the plumping, youth-boosting benefits of oestrogen (safely and effectively) to restore your healthy, vibrant glow – bringing about the brand’s namesake ‘Venus Effect’.

7. anatomē

Developed with the help of sports scientists, nutritionists and aromacologists, {anatomē} uses active natural botanical extracts, organic and scientifically proven ingredients to promote both physical and emotional wellbeing – something our bodies and minds particularly call out for during menopause. This clever {Menosupport + Renewal} complex combines ingredients such as primrose oil, soy isoflavanoids and Siberian ginseng to alleviate common symptoms such as hot flushes and mood swings. Key vitamins and folic acid work alongside these symptom relievers to improve day-to-day body function, including maintaining heart health, vision, immunity and psychological function. Yes please!
