Key Active Ingredients and Their Effects
ALOE VERA – Prevents skin inflammation and nourishes it with various nutrients, such as minerals, vitamins, proteins and enzymes. itamins present in aloe vera gel are A, C, E, B (thiamine), B3 (niacin), B2 (riboflavine), which act as antioxidants, and choline, folic acid, and traces of vitamin B12.
PHOSPHOLIPIDS – Phospholipids are the sort of lipids that create major components of every cell membrane due to their ability to form lipid bilayers. Their main functions are deep skin moisturization, improvement of barrier function, stimulation of ceramide synthesis and stimulation of cell proliferation.
POLYSACCHARIDES – Gentle skin-smoothing and tightening properties make the skin appear more youthful.
VEGETABLE GLYCERINE – Extremely effective moisturizer which penetrates deeplyin the skin and thus helps to regulate skin elasticity .
ALLANTOIN – Moisturizing and smoothing properties with proven promoting cell proliferation and wound healing activities. It has anti-irritant and skin protectant effect by forming complexes with irritant and sensitizing agents.
Other Supporting Ingredients
PRESERVATIVES USED – Formulations are made as partly self-preserving products – with only small portion of benzyl alcohol and dehydroacetic acid, well researched Cosmos and ECOGEA approved preservative for organic cosmetics. Self-preserving is achieved as combination of few natural derived ingredients. Mixture is composed with 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 is appropriately balanced with skin compatible acidic environment. 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:
GLYCERYL STEARATE CITRATE, STEARIC ACID, SODIUM LAUROYL GLUTAMATE – 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 – Ingredient for regulation of viscosity and texture.
