I am happy to share that my Mature Skin Line is now complete! This season we added a hand and body lotion and a lip balm. Today I will be sharing a bit of information about the lotion.
Our Mature Skin Hand & Body Lotion isn't just for mature skin. It is also great for those of us who play a little bit to hard in the sun! I use it daily on my hands and love it. It has a rich and silky feel to it and leaves your skin feeling hydrated and nourished.
Rosehip Seed Oil: A light oil with a fast absorption rate that is excellent for mature and damaged skin. It is high in essential fatty acids, vitamin A, C, E, D, & K. In fact, Rosehip is the only vegetable oil to naturally contain tretinoin (a form of vitamin A)
These vitamins, combined with its content of omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids make it an excellent choice for anti-aging skincare. Rosehip Seed oil is known for its ability to assist with skin cell regeneration, reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles, improve skin color and tone, and has been known to delay the onset of skin aging. Rosehip seed oil creates a lipid protective barrier that supports, nourishes, and hydrates the skin.
MSM: "Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a white, powderized sulfur compound. Its the third largest nutrient found inside the human body. We obtain this compound by eating foods such as milk, fish, and green leafy vegetables." (Organic Creations)
If MSM supplies are depleted in the skin, skin may become dry, cracked, damaged, and wrinkled. MSM is an easily absorbed nutrient and can improve the health of skin in many ways. It strengthens, regenerates, and improves elasticity.
Allantoin: A naturally occurring substance found in many plants, most notably Comfrey. Allantoin is known for its healing, calming, and soothing properties and can help protect skin from external factors. It is believed to aid in the healing of damaged skin by stimulating new tissue growth.
Calendula: Calendula makes its way in just about every Herbal Beauty product. It is easy to grow and so fun to work with. I infuse the dried flowers in sunflower and use this oil in my skincare products and we also use calendula hydrosol in our water based formulations. Calendula is high in vitamin A & C as well as many skin-beneficial minerals. It is anti-inflammatory, soothing, and moisturizing making it ideal for mature and/or damaged skin. (Look out for an entire post on Calendula!)
Essential oil Blend:
Carrot seed: Contains up to 40% carotel which gives rise to its skin rejuvenation, firming, and toning qualities. Rich in vitamin A, C, and E which helps to repair the signs of aging and moisturizes
Geranium: Anti-inflammatory, improves circulation, astringent; It has the power to minimize the look wrinkles of because it tightens facial skin and slows down the effects of aging. Balances sebum production, cleansing.
Frankincense: Tightens and tones the skin tissue, cleanses the skin, cleans the pores, stimulates skin cell regeneration, promotes healthy skin growth. Smooths wrinkles and fine lines.
This is just a few of the beneficial ingredients in our Mature Hand & Body Lotion. A lot of care and research goes into our formulations because we only want to bring you the best!
