KEY BENEFITS

Edible Organic Lemon Fruit Water (Water-soluble antioxidants): Directly extracted from the heart of the fruit, this pure fruit water provides the skin with essential nutrients (trace elements, mineral salts and hydro-dispersed essential oils). Its similarity with human physiological fluids ensures its perfect affinity with the skin.

Hammamelis Floral Water (Water-soluble antioxidants): The “golden treasure” of skin care does more than give you clear skin and shrink pores. Tannins give wine dry taste. Astringents cause tissues to constrict. They also help to remove dead skin cells and residual sebum and make-up that can make skin look dull. Firms skin and make it look more youthful due to its skin tightening effect.

Açaí Berry oil Wild Harvested and Cold Pressed (oil-soluble antioxidants): Bioflavonoids protect collagen by blocking collagenase, (the collagen destroying enzyme) help strengthen blood vessels and improve the delivery of oxygen to the cells. Proanthocyanidins also have an affinity for cell membranes, providing the nutritional support required to reduce capillary permeability and fragility.

Papaya Enzymes: Papaya Enzymes work to naturally loosen the ‘glue’ that holds together dead skin cells, to reveal a glowing, balanced complexion. This gentle exfoliation encourages skin renewal whilst simultaneously deeply cleansing pores, refining the skin’s texture, and correcting uneven skin tone.

Aloe Vera: The healing properties of aloe vera have been known for centuries. Used as a topical application, aloe stimulates collagen synthesis and has been shown to promote wound healing. Aloe vera improves the permeability of cell walls, boosts nutrient influx into cells, and removes toxins from cells.

Propolis – The Ancient Healer: Propolis can contain up to 50 different flavonoids – known anti oxidents which prevent cell damage. It stops bacteria from spreading, enhances skin renewal and heals post-acne scars.

White Clay (Naturally sun-dried): White Clay is the gentlest clay of the various clays that exist. His powerful properties calm the skin, remove dead skin cells without over dry it. It is still effective against acne, helping heal existing blemishes and prevent new ones, while absorbs the impurities from the pores. Stimulates circulation which improves healing and provides nourishment for the skin.

Problems of oily skin

1.Excessive sebum production is perhaps the key characteristic of acne. Sebum production in the skin is handled by cells known as sebocytes. They are a bit like water balloons in that they gobble fatty acids and grow bigger and bigger. Once they mature they make their way into the hair canal where they burst and spill the sebum. Hormones stimulate the growth of sebocytes and thus sebum production.

2.Blockage of the hair canal (follicle) by dead skin cells is another key characteristic of acne. Cells known as keratinocytes are the most common cells in the outer layer of the skin. They form the walls of the hair canal. In a healthy skin they die and separate and are pushed out of the skin by the growing hair. In an acne-prone skin this process goes haywire for two reasons.

3.Excess growth of skin cells:
Condition known as hyperkeratinization. Keratin is a protein that binds these cells together, and when you have too much of keratin the bonds between the cells are stronger. So when the cells die they are more likely to stick together and block the hair canal. Once the hair canal is blocked by a sticky mixture of sebum and dead skin cells it starts to swell as more and more dead skin cells are pushed into the area. Oxygen levels plummet at the blocked pore, and this creates an ideal environment for P. Acnes bacteria to thrive.

4.Inflammation results as the immune system attacks the bacteria in the blocked pore. Acne patients have markedly stronger inflammatory response to P. Acnes bacteria than people with healthy skin.


Propolis

Propolis

Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. The etymology of the word “propolіs” is derived from the greek words Pro, meaning in front of, and polis, meaning city, combined together to form propolis, meaning in front of the City. The reference extends to bees, which would place propolis аt the entrаnce of the hіve to prevent predаtors’ іntrusіons. In ancient Greece, Hippocrates, the most esteemed personage in the history of medicine, used Propolis in order to heal infections and wounds.
