I’ve been thinking for sometime now how I can formulate the best night creams for skin. Finally I arrived with and cream packed with active ‘busy bees’ ingredients, that repairs, recovers and rejuvenates skin all while you sleep in a fragrance of Ylang Ylang and Lavender.
It contains ingredients such as:
Vitamin E Oil –
- Protects the skin from environmental pollution
- Has a protecting action against UV radiation – although it cannot be classed as a sunscreen
- An excellent moisturiser
- Contains powerful anti-inflammatory action – and this can prevent the signs of premature ageing, as inflammatory conditions in the skin is a leading cause of skin ageing
- Has excellent wound healing properties
Apart from all of these excellent qualities, vitamin E also enhances and helps with the penetration of other compounds into the skin and is itself well absorbed by human skin.
Rosehip Seed Oil – useful in the repair of damaged skin tissue caused by scalds, burns, varicose veins and skin over-exposed to sunlight, and for treating oily skin, sensitive skin, and reducing or healing fine lines around the eyes, wrinkles and scars. Rosehip is amongst the best vegetable oil source of omega 3 and is also a good source of omega 6, both essential fatty acids collectively known as vitamin F, involved in cellular membrane and tissue regeneration and normalising skin with large pores.
Shea butter – Good for moisturising, protecting and healing the skin, especially dry and damaged skin. It contains 5-10% phytosterol, which stimulates cell growth.
Aloe Vera –
- reduces scarring in burns; skin ulcers and other lesions
- relieves pain from sunburn and burns and helps these to heal quickly by stimulating
- fibroblast and connective tissue formation, and by stimulating the epidermal growth and repair process
- has rejuvenating effects
- has been shown to have an invigorating effect on skin when applied on a regular basis
- excellent emollient, making it soothing and calming to the skin
- antiseptic and antibacterial, acting against a number of different bacteria and fungi
Spilanthes Acmella extract – Stimulates the fibroblasts present in the extra-cellular matrix of the skin. Fibroblasts permanently interact with collagen fibres to create a 3-dimensional network within the supporting extra cellular matrix. Through their mobility and contractile properties, fibroblasts organise the network by pulling on the collagen fibres, tightening the matrix and thus firming the skin.
Apricot Kernel Oil – It is a mild oil, which is tolerated by most
people, and is especially good for sensitive, inflamed, dry or mature skin but it is a classic skin oil for sensitive skin.
Safflower Oil – Thistle oil is an excellent source of omega 6 & 3 essential fatty acids. Good for oily skin, large pores and all skin conditions. It is therefore excellent for people who want to rebalance their skin type from large-pored to normal skin.
Olive Oil – Olive oil’s nourishing, softening and protecting properties are well-known but it is also an anti-inflammatory and so very valuable to use in oil blends that treat skin irritations, insect bites, sun-damaged skin, eczema, psoriasis and itchiness.
Botanical infusion, for Age – GINSENG (Panax Ginseng) Ginseng is a rich source of ginsenosides which help stimulate the microcirculation of the skin and angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels), both of which are essential for wound healing and reduction of scar formation. Ginsenosides have also been shown to stimulate collagen synthesis, helping to improve the skins’ tone and elasticity.
GOTU KOLA (Centella asiatica) Gotu kola contains vitamins A, B, E and K, and magnesium. It is also a source of glycosides, which help increase the blood supply to the skin and thus exhibiting wound healing and anti-inflammatory activities. Glycosides also enhance collagen synthesis, aiding restoration of the skins’ elasticity and allowing healing of scar tissue. Stimulation of keratinisation also occurs, helping increase hair and nail growth.
GINKGO (Ginkgo biloba) Ginkgo biloba increases micro-circulation of the blood, improves sebaceous secretions and activates cell metabolism. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties.Ginkgo contains flavonoids which aid the synthesis of collagen and other connective tissue.
OLIVE LEAF (Olea europaea) Olive leaf extract contains flavonoids which stimulate collagen synthesis. This helps improve skin tone and protects against free radicals produced by external stimuli such as UV rays. It also contains oleuropein, a polyphenolic fraction derived from the fruit, leaves, bark and roots of the olive tree. This exhibits anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties.
D-Pathenol – Panthenol (Pro-vitamin B5) penetrates deep into the skin and hair shaft and has excellent water-binding abilities. It creates a protective film, thus aiding moisture retention.
All these work together to give you the nature’s best.
