Key Active Ingredients and Their Effects
ANCIENT COMFREY (SYMPHYTUM OFFICINALE) STEM CELLS – Comfrey has been used as a medicinal plant for many centuries. In ancient Greece, physicians used it to treat various skin conditions. Studies have shown that comfrey boosts cell turnover to rejuvenate the skin from the inside out by activating skin stem cells. It results in fresher and smoother skin.
EXTRACT OF LEAVES FROM THE ALPINE ROSE (RHODODENDRON FERRUGINEUM) – This alpine flower protects skin proteins against damage induced by oxidation as well as reinforces its defence against pathogens. It contains powerful antioxidants (such as chlorogenic acid) and chemicals to fight against infection (flavonoids).
PHYTOSTEROLS (RICH IN ECDYSTERONE) – Phytosterols (plant sterols) are cholesterol-like compounds found mostly in vegetable oils, nuts and legumes. Purified extracts can re-densify the dermal extracellular matrix and increase epidermal thickness.
ROSEHIP (ROSA CANINA) LIPOPHILIC EXTRACT – Rosehip is a powerful source of fatty oil with a high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids (including linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and oleic acid). It also contains compounds that promote skin protection and regeneration (antioxidant tocopherols (related to vitamin E), skin oil sterols and vitamin A-containing carotenoids).
Other Supporting Ingredients
PRESERVATIVES USED – Formulations are made as self-preserving products – with only small portion of benzyl alcohol and dehydroacetic acid, well researched Cosmos and ECOGEA approved preservatives for organic cosmetics. Self-preserving is achieved as a combination of few natural derived ingredients. The mixture is composed of organic acids that are found in nature in many plants and bee hives (e.g. levulinic acid), chelator of natural origin (sodium phytate), plant derived multifunctional glyceryl monoester (Glyceryl Caprylate). The pH of products (= 5.5) is appropriately balanced with the acidic environment. The products are packed in containers with limited access to ambient air, which minimizes any chance of overall product contamination.
PLANT DERIVED EMULSIFIERS, GELLING AGENTS AND THICKENERS:
CETEARYL GLUCOSIDE, SORBITAN OLIVATE, GLYCERYL STEARATE CITRATE, SODIUM STEAROYL GLUTAMATE – A blend of emulsifying ingredients with the ability to develop a liquid crystal structure in emulsions. They reinforce skin barrier, moisturise the skin and have pleasant after feel.
CETEARYL ALCOHOL – An ingredient for regulation of viscosity and texture.
GUAR GUM, XANTHAN GUM – Natural thickeners and stabilisers. Act as transepidermal water loss protectors to maintain desirable levels of TEWL.
SHEA BUTTER, AVOCADO OIL, BABASSU OIL – Natural oils, easily absorbed into the skin. These are nutritive, restructuring, and hydrating. Perfect synergy for middle age skin.
SQUALANE – Naturally occurring hydrocarbon made from the unsaponifiable matter of olive oil. It protects the skin against loss of moisture, makes it elastic and pliant, and thereby improves the structure of the natural lipid film.
Instructions for Use
