Aloe : Aloe absorbs ultraviolet rays and guards against exposure to the sun. The natural fatty acids and vitamin E in the aloe promptly repair the skin after sun or wind
exposure. Aloe limits free radical function and guards against the appearance of aging. It cleanses the skin and prevents allergic reactions.
Borage Seeds Oil: Borage makes an excellent facial cream for improving very dry, sensitive skin. Borage seed oil is one of the richest sources of gamma linolenic acid, and it also contains important vitamins and minerals. Borage seed oil is typically used in high-end cosmetic formulations to nourish and hydrate the skin. Use Borage oil in facial blends for maturing skin or in blends for damaged skin where regeneration of new skin cells is needed.
Calendula: Calendula salve can be used for treating minor cuts and abrasions, chapped lips, and diaper rash. Calendula tea has been used as mouthwash for gum and tooth infections, a gargle for sore throats and tonsillitis, and a bath for genital inflammation or hemorrhoids. It can also be used to treat bladder infections or stomach ulcers.
Chamomile: The extract of chamomile flowers is used as an ingredient in hair shampoo. It can be added to cosmetics as an anti-allergic agent. The chamomile flowers are sometimes added to a salve for use on hemorrhoids, wounds, skin inflammations, sunburn, and other burns. The dry flowers can be added to a bath to help relax tired, achy muscles and feet, and soften the skin.
Seychelles Coco-de-Mer : Coco-de-Mer preserves the skin's moisture and provides nutrition to the skin. It is especially suitable for dry and rough skin. Coco-de-Mer nutrients feed and brighten the skin. It contains amino acids, including seven types that are essential to the human body. The amino acids strengthen the skin cells, greatly enhancing the flexibility and health of the skin.
Ginkgo Leaf : Ginkgo leaf helps skin resist oxidation, one of the main factors in aging. It does this by guarding skin against damage from exposure to the sun. Ginkgo also prevents skin's allergic reaction to certain light rays, because it slows oxidation. In ginkgo leaf extraction, the total ginkgo lactones are withdrawn. These limit the harmful effects of oxidized free radicals while strengthening the skin’s natural immune system. Ginkgo promotes blood circulation and increases healthy blood supply and cell metabolism. This, in turn, speeds up skin cell renewal and increases the skin’s gloss and elasticity.
Ginseng : Ginseng includes many kinds of nutritional ingredients, such as glucosides and polysaccharides, and many kinds of amino acids, vitamins, and trace elements. It increases nutrients going into the cells, improving the skin’s health and moisturizing the skin. It helps to improve blood circulation to the skin, strengthening skin elasticity and reducing the signs of aging. Ginseng provides for the skin's water balance, preventing dehydration and promoting moist, glossy skin.
Oats: Extract of oats, Vitamin E, flavanone apperception and non-flavanone phenol compound, exhibits significant oxidation resistance function. In addition, it contains cinnamon acids derivative, which may suppress the low density lipoprotein oxidation. The beta glucose contained in oats, due to its unique linear chain molecular structure, can pass through the intercellular matrix and deeply penetrate and cleanse the skin. Oats beta glucose has effective anti-wrinkle and anti-aging characteristics. It can tighten and smooth fine lines, improve skin texture, and preserve long-term moisture. It enhances skin immunity to viruses and skin’s resistance to external irritants. It is also effective in curing wounds and reducing scar visibility. Oats contain the highest content of amino acid among cereals, which can preserve skin moisture, especially for dry skin. Silicon dioxide may also reduce or cure many skin diseases.
Olive Leaf : Olive leaf extracts have a number of applications in cosmetics: From their traditional use as a cicatrizing agent, they can be incorporated into a formulation for skin damage by UV radiation or for assisting with wound healing. This function is explained by the presence of flavonoids and oleanolic acid, which stimulate the components of the connective tissue and regularize the tissue, thereby boosting the health of the skin. The secoiridoid derivatives (oleuropeoside) in olive leaves are responsible for the vaso-dilating and relaxing properties of their extracts.
