A BIT HIPPY DON'T ACT YOUR AGE FACIAL MOISTURISER 100G
We all know you can’t airbrush in real life and being a bit hippy, we’re all for ageing gracefully of course. But we still like to keep our skin in the healthiest state possible.
The biggest factors of skin ageing are skin oxidisation (naturally occurs as we get older), skin dryness and too much sun. So we made a cream that targets these factors to keep the skin as healthy and youthful as possible.
“Anti-Ageing Creams” make us roll our eyes too. So we’re going to break it down and describe what they can’t do and then show you what they can do. This will help you know when the suits from Paris are trying to pull a fast one.
1. A cosmetic anti-ageing cream cannot lift muscles or affect the structure of the face. Nor can it have a "Botox Effect. "Your skin is a barrier. This means it keeps anything on the skin from reaching the fat and muscles underneath. Furthermore, any cream that did manage to affect the muscles would need to be classed as a drug.
2. Stem cells and DNA from different species will not make our human skin live longer. This sounds silly we know. But every year we see anti-ageing actives based on such things, for example the "Immortal Button Jellyfish", “Swiss Apples”, and “Sheep's Placenta”. It seems so convincing and they have "studies" to back them up. But human DNA and cells are not the same as that of other animal kingdoms. Sure the other ingredients may be moisturising, but forget the stem cells.
HIPPY FACT Did you know some formulas have menthol added to give a tingling "I can feel it working" sensation?
There are loads of very powerful natural anti-ageing ingredients. These help target the factors that are known to cause ageing, like skin oxidisation, skin dryness and sun damage.
Here are the ones we have chosen to use in our Anti-Ageing Face Moisturiser:
GLABRIDIN A very powerful topical antioxidant extracted from Liquorice Root. It helps prevent skin oxidisation.
ABSCORBYL TETRAISOPALMITATE We know it’s a mouthful, but that’s the technical name for Vitamin C, one of the best antioxidants. It’s oil soluble too which means that it can penetrate the skin’s natural oils to do its job.
RESVERATROL Another one of our favourite antioxidants which can also be found in red wine and red grapes.
NATURAL OILS such as Starflower Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Rice Bran Oil and Olive Squalene which are loaded with essential fatty acids to moisturise the skin and prevent skin dryness as well as help keep the skin soft and supple.
