The Story of AZURE
At Earth Harbor, we believe in collaborating with our customers to create plant-based, result-driven products. Thanks to thousands of lovely requests, resulting in a powerful demand, we bring you AZURE Regenerative Neck Creme: the first neck cream in the plant-based and planet-conscious space!
With over 200,000 preorders (HUGE for our small indie brand), we looked to fill the gap in the industry with AZURE. She met the need for a scientifically proven neck cream brought to you by a woman-owned, sustainability-driven company with the strictest ingredient standards.
We get asked: "isn’t neck cream just an expensive moisturizer"? No! The skin on your neck is thinner, has fewer sebaceous glands, and is usually more neglected (even though it’s exposed to the same amount of UV rays and environmental aggressors as your face!), which makes it more vulnerable to premature aging. That’s why we developed AZURE.
Powered by both land and sea, AZURE’s beautiful blue color comes from naturally-derived copper peptides, designed to revitalize and plump even the most delicate skin. Seaweed Amino Acids, Flower Stem Cells, and Hyaluronic Acid work overtime to aid firmness and elasticity while supercharging the skin with long-lasting moisture. Moisturizing Beta-Glucan and probiotic-packed Fruit Ferment cushion the gentle skin on the neck and chest. Ultra-hydrating, AZURE’s inspiration stems from the natural waters that make up both our bodies and the world around us.
Since we make all our products in our own certified in-house lab, we’re able to keep our gems accessible and sustainable. With our pure and premium ingredients, you can skip the $100 neck cream. As with all Earth Harbor products, we cut out the middleman by formulating and manufacturing everything ourselves. The result? A neck cream that is great not only for your skin but Mother Earth herself.
Our consumer test showed that 99% of people agree that AZURE makes their skin feel moisturized in addition to looking more smooth, tight, and lifted. It’s time to treasure your neck with this lightweight, whipped gel-cream designed for all skin types and concerns.

After you apply your facial moisturizer to your face, then use Azure Neck Cream on your neck/décolletage. Massage Azure Neck Cream from the chin down and work your way into the chest, but really any direction you prefer to apply is fine! Note: If you want to layer Azure with your face moisturizer then use Azure first.

FAQs – Facts and Myths About Neck Cream
Neck cream, similar to eye cream, has been a topic of conversation when it comes to skepticism about whether the two are really necessary. While you don’t technically need to use a neck cream, it can provide extra TLC to the delicate skin on the chest and neck.
Here’s everything you need to know about the facts and myths about neck cream.
What is the best way to care for the skin on your neck?
Wear SPF! The best way to care for the skin on your neck is to treat it as another part of your skincare routine. Cleansing, hydrating, and diligently wearing sun protection are the most important things you can do for your neck. It’s important to remember that the skin on the neck is exposed to just as much sun as the face is, so applying sunscreen every day is absolutely necessary.
What gives AZURE Neck Cream its blue color?
Copper peptides and eggplant give AZURE her gorgeous blue color. Our supplier has a state-of-the-art lab where they synthesize other plant extracts which provides color stability, too. The result? Plant-based color that serves a therapeutic purpose!
Why is it oil-free?
AZURE Neck Cream is oil-free so you don’t have to worry about it staining or transferring onto your clothes. Additionally, it makes the cream lightweight so it optimally absorbs its specific actives into the thinner and more delicate skin on the neck. It’s our first oil-free moisturizer and is a great option for the face as well!
What can neck cream do?
An effective neck cream helps to hydrate, protect, and stimulate collagen synthesis. With the skin on the neck being very delicate, keeping it moisturized, protected, and using the correct active ingredients can keep it taut. Our necks are exposed to environmental aggressors as much as our faces are. Without hydrating and protecting the skin on the neck, it will quickly lose firmness and elasticity and ultimately be left vulnerable to the damaging effects of pollution and environmental stressors.
AZURE Regenerative Neck Creme uses copper peptides and seaweed-derived amino acids to plump and revitalize, hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate and restore elasticity, and land and sea botanicals to provide long-lasting antioxidant protection.
What can neck cream not do?
Neck cream can not turn back the hands of time or reverse the effects of photoaging. It also can’t defy the laws of gravity. Neck cream is not a cure-all, but it can serve as a viable treatment for loss of firmness and elasticity and act as a preventative measure.
How does the skin on the neck and chest differ from the skin on the face?
The skin on your neck and chest is much thinner than the skin on your face. It also produces less oil and has fewer pores which leads neck and chest skin to be more sensitive as well. It can be easy to neglect the skin on the neck because it might not initially show signs of concern like our faces can. However, our necks are exposed to just as much as our faces are, which is why it’s important to nourish the area and care for it just as diligently as the face.
Why use neck cream?
Since the skin on your neck is thinner and more sensitive than the skin on your face, treating it with a cream specially formulated to nourish the skin barrier is similar to how we moisturize every other part of our body. The skin on our arms and legs is different from the skin on our faces, yet we still moisturize them regularly. It all comes down to keeping the skin plump and hydrated with preventative active ingredients. With the skin being the largest organ, it makes sense that it thins and varies from place to place. This is why neck cream can be incredibly beneficial.
Can you use neck cream on your face?
Yes, you can use AZURE Regenerative Neck Creme on your face! This delicate formula was created with all skin types and skin concerns in mind, even though it was engineered for the neck (because the skin on your neck is different than on your face). The peptides, amino acids, marine botanicals, and hyaluronic acid make it a lightweight, collagen-boosting, and antioxidant-rich, so we won't stop you from using it on your face.
Can’t I just use my regular moisturizer on my neck?
You can absolutely use your regular moisturizer on your neck. However, it’s important to note that facial moisturizers are designed for the thicker skin on the face as well as for more sebaceous glands, and they can feel slightly heavier when applied to the neck - especially since your neck naturally creases more as you move throughout the day. Since the neck produces less oil and is much thinner, it requires regular, diligent hydration and lots of antioxidant protection. If you’re using products that are proven to stimulate collagen production, contain antioxidants, and SPF, then you should be okay without a neck cream.
