A blend of natural fruit acids – apple, bilberry, lemon, orange, and papaya. Once applied to the skin the acids react with the outer layer of skin (epidermal) cells, weakening the binding properties of the lipids (the ‘glue’) that hold the dead cells together. This is the mechanism that allows the damaged outer skin layer to “peel” off to reveal the underlying new skin cells, thus giving your skin an even, untarnished texture. In addition, alpha hydroxy acids can penetrate into the new skin cell’s membrane, stimulating them to generate collagen and elastic fibres that improves and strengthens the skin’s condition.
Panthenol – natural conditioning active. Panthenol increases the moisture content of the skin and improves collagen production.
Rosewater has been found to be a very useful skin tonic and is used cosmetically as a facial cleanser and toner. The benefit comes from its ability to stimulate the flow in the minute blood vessels under the skin. Scars, minor infections, sunburn, ageing skin and thread veins all benefit from this action.
Glycerine: A natural humectant which provides increased moisture to the skin.
