Extra pure aloe juice
Aloe Vera regulates the pH of the skin
The normal pH of the skin is around 6.5, ie slightly acidic. This slight acidity of the skin allows it to better resist the various microorganisms which seek to "take up residence" there.
Aloe Vera has a pH similar to that of the skin. It regulates skins with alkaline tendencies, softens, refines and firms the skin by tightening the follicular ostia and restores the skin's tone.
Aloe Vera penetrates the skin deeply
When it is associated with other elements such as vitamin E, it helps them cross the epidermis to nourish the dermis and hypodermis or activate the blood microcirculation there. Studies led by Dr. Ivan E. Danhof, president of North Texas Research Laboratories, have even found that Aloe Vera penetrates the skin four times faster than water.
Aloe Vera rids the skin of dead cells
By the action of its proteolytic enzymes; Aloe Vera removes dead cells. Proteolytic enzymes are enzymes which hydrolyze proteins, that is to say which breaks them down by water fixation.
The epidermis is not irrigated by a blood microcirculation like the dermis and the hypodermis. When the passage between the dermis and the epidermis is not clogged, the dermis can properly nourish the epidermis. New cells can thus form. If you do not remove the dead cells, they accumulate until they completely block the pores of the skin.
Aloe Vera, facial regenerator
Polysaccharides, carbohydrates found in aloe vera, could explain its ability to fight aging
By firming the epidermis, Aloe Vera has a dual beneficial effect. On the one hand, the complexion rejuvenates; on the other hand, the skin is again protected against harmful external agents and reacts better to sunlight.
Aloe Vera is both a moisturizing and astringent agent
To stay healthy, skin must have sufficient water content, whether it is dry or oily. This is a role that an Aloe Vera based moisturizer can perform wonderfully.
Aloe Vera moisturizes the skin thanks to its considerable water percentage (99%), but it can also retain moisture in the skin. By its property of tightening the tissues, Aloe Vera is indeed also an astringent. This is explained in particular by the fact that it contains mono- and polysaccharides as well as several amino acids.
Rich in vitamins: A, B1, B3, B6, B12, C, E and Choline.
Minerals: Iron, Calcium, Zinc, Potassium, Magnesium, Copper, etc.
18 amino acids including 9 of the most important.
Enzymes: acid phosphatase amylase, bradykinase, cellulase, lipase etc.
Natural agents such as saponins which have antiseptic priorities and anthraquinones which have antibiotic, antiviral and anti-inflammatory effects.
Raspberry Seed Vegetable Oil
Antioxidant: Vitamin E, gallic acid and carotenoids are powerful antioxidants that will prevent and reduce the signs of aging of the skin. It is an anti-aging oil that will delay the appearance of wrinkles.
Nourishing and moisturizing: this oil is restorative, softening and restructuring. Its high content of omega-3 and omega-6 helps maintain skin elasticity and regenerate the hydrolipidic film. As a face cream, it moisturizes, nourishes and protects the skin.
Protective and after-sun: raspberry seed vegetable oil is a very effective ingredient for sunscreens.
Anti-inflammatory and soothing: in case of irritated or itchy skin, raspberry seed oil has anti-inflammatory activity due to its high omega-3 content. Thus, it helps soothe itching and reduce redness.
Prickly pear vegetable oil
Antioxidant: vitamin E and sterols are all antioxidant compounds that fight against free radicals present in the body. There are nearly 100 mg of vitamin E for 100 g of oil and 1000 mg of sterols, argan in comparison contains only 60 and 130 mg respectively. Coupled with essential fatty acids, these compounds are ideal for combating the signs of skin aging.
Softening, nourishing and moisturizing: prickly pear oil is exceptionally rich in omega 6 which allows it to regenerate the hydrolipidic film of the skin. This oil is softening, it helps maintain the elasticity of the skin. It can be used on the face but also on the whole body and hair.
Skin regenerating and healing: Prickly pear seed oil is made up of nearly 60% unsaturated fatty acids, essential fatty acids not synthesized by the body and which it is important to obtain from the outside. By entering into the composition of cell membranes, these fatty acids participate in the reconstitution of cells and therefore in skin regeneration.
Moringa vegetable oil
Moringa oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids (between 65 and 79% oleic acid, from the omega-9 family). It is therefore an oil perfectly suited to moisturize sensitive and dry skin by providing complete hydration of the epidermis. The skin is revitalized and the complexion is visibly clearer.
Aging of skin cells is caused by free radical attacks. Thanks to its composition rich in antioxidants (vitamin C and E), moringa oil helps fight against the action of free radicals and slows down skin aging. Moringa oil is therefore very suitable for mature skin.
Evening Primrose Oil
Anti-inflammatory: Evening primrose vegetable oil is naturally composed of omega-6 fatty acids. These appear to be directly linked to the production of prostaglandins, substances involved in the inflammatory response. Evening primrose oil is thought to inhibit the mechanisms responsible for inflammation.
Regenerating skin: The rich fatty acid composition of evening primrose oil gives it cell regeneration properties.
Softening, nourishing: Evening primrose oil helps to bring suppleness and elasticity to the skin. Its sterol composition helps it fight against aging of the skin.
Rose Otto essential oil
Its astringent, revitalizing and healing properties make it a very valuable oil for improving the appearance of tired skin.
Rosemary verbenone essential oil
The presence of camphor, as well as alpha-pinene in the oil, stimulates tissue nutrition and improves circulatory activity, which promotes healing and regeneration of the skin.
