INGREDIENTS AND SKIN CARE GOAS

Helichrysum, meaning Golden sun, is known as the immortal flower. It promotes rejuvenation, cell regeneration, and glowing skin. Helichrysum is a magical, potent and all-around beneficial flower for the skin. Meaning Golden sun - helios is greek for sun, and chyrsos means gold.
There is evidence that helichrysum has been used for thousands of years.
It has been used topically and medicinally throughout Africa, Greece & Europe (please consult your health care provider before using internally).
Helichrysum has multiple benefits for the skin.
It offers antioxidants that protect collagen and elastin, which helps prevent oxidative stress and free radical damage.
It can also help with cell regeneration to smooth, rebuild and resurface wounds & blemishes.

Jojoba Oil hydrates the skin and has antioxidant & anti-inflammatory properties. It is helpful in reducing redness and calming skin. As a wax ester, jojoba oil mimics natural sebum, so it helps condition & seal in moisture, softening and smoothing your skin.

Fair-trade Organic Mango butter is used for the base of the face cream to offer fatty acids, UV protection, high levels of vitamins A & C, and cell regeneration.

Shea Nilotica is creamier and softer and has more beneficiary properties than any other shea butter variety. It is known for its healing properties, thanks to the presence of numerous fatty acids and plant sterols like stearic, oleic, palmitic, and linolenic acids. Raw, unrefined shea butter is efficient in helping with skin rashes, scars, & acne. Shea butter has numerous derivatives of cinnamic acid that display anti-inflammatory characteristics. Inflammations from skin conditions like dermatitis, rosacea, rashes, cuts, sunburns, and scrapes may be soothed by using shea butter on them. It stimulates the making of collagen, the youthful protein present in the skin. The vitamins A and E present in this butter may help keep the skin supple, nourished, and radiant. If used daily, it may even decrease wrinkles and also help prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines. It may also help increase circulation to the skin and promote cell renewal.

Sugar Squalane is sourced from non-GMO sugar and is bio-based & Eco-Cert approved. Squalane helps restore skin hydration and is non-comedogenic. Because its molecular structure is so close to the skin’s own, squalane oil penetrates deep into the pores where it targets your skin care concerns at a cellular level. Squalane oil fights off skin-damaging free radicals, & helps balance oil production, providing just enough moisture to keep the skin clear and healthy. Squalane oil has anti-inflammatory benefits, and may help boost blood circulation, which promotes the formation of collagen.

Organic helichrysum essential oil finishes this face cream off to add its signature scent and double up on all its healing, nourishing benefits and help your face glow.
