ERTH opened its doors in Green Point towards the end of last year and is the first nutricosmetic restaurant of its kind. The restaurant is part of The Skin Co. which launched in 2019, and believes that what you eat should be as beneficial for your skin as the products you use on your face.
The menu has been designed with ingredients that promote healthy radiance from the inside out. Working with four ingestible cosmetic ingredients; Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen(using fish-based peptides), Resveratrol and Phyto Ceramides – all of which are said to have benefits for your skin. These actives are tasteless and can be incorporated into a variety of dishes on the new menu.
The menu has been adapted from the original The Skin Co. cosmetic bar, offering local and sustainable fish, chicken, dairy and eggs on request; all of which are sourced from free-range farms. The Skin Co.‘s original menu was completely vegan, and the addition of animal-based proteins to the menu allows the restaurant to be more accessible. Vegan options include their widely loved omelette, waffle, crepes and more. Cold-pressed juices and skin shots finish off the menu.
ERTH is also home to The Skin Co.’s subsidiary brands Cold Pressed Skin and Instinctive by Nature. Launched earlier this year, the two brands are now widely available both online and in stores including Wellness Warehouse.
The Skin Co. ships nationally and internationally free of charge; which has created a loyal following in places as far as Japan, Australia and the States. After five years of scientific research and development at some of the world’s most established laboratories, these brands are positioned at the forefront of natural vegan skincare.
The Skin Co. production facility is ECOCERT approved, further enhancing the company’s vision to do as little harm as possible while offering a high-quality product suitable for all skin types.
