Hydrate and Rejuvenate Face Gel
Made with hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, rosewater, aloe vera, some home-grown calendula, and plenty of other marvellous ingredients, this oil-free face gel refreshes and moisturises your skin beautifully.
You can also layer it beneath your usual moisturiser, so the gel acts as a lightweight, hydrating serum/essence.
This handmade, organic face gel includes:
Organic rose water; full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, rose has excellent emollient propeties for moisturising dry, mature skin. It also has a gentle anti-bacterial, antiseptic and astringent effect, making it a great ingredient to treat acne and relieve redness and inflammation in the skin.
Organic aloe vera; smoothes fine lines and hydrates, helping to support and restore skin's elasticity. Aloe contains 18 amino acids that work together to heal and soothe dry, irritated skin.
Vegetable glycerine; helps skin to retain moisture, thus preventing outward signs of skin aging. It also reduces dryness and has beneficial antioxidant properties.
Hyaluronic acid; popularly called “The Fountain of Youth”, hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain moisture, volume and fullness. Its famous hydrating properties result in increased skin smoothness, helping to soften the appearance of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid can attract between 600-1000 times its own weight in water, making it an excellent ingredient for drawing more moisture into the skin. I use vegan hyaluronic acid which is made by producing enzymes from a bacteria-based bio fermentation process, and is NOT sourced from roosters' combs, as are many others.
Vitamin B3; is soothing and anti-inflammatory, helping to relieve redness and soreness in dry or irritated skin. It supports cell growth, prevents the signs of skin aging and improves the appearance of skin by stimulating the production of collagen. It can also help to reduce age spots, blemishes and acne.
Liftonin; reduces wrinkles and fine lines. Developed in Switzerland, Liftonin has been specially designed to improve the skin structure. Its active ingredients are botanical silicon from millet and skin-tautening tannins from oak.
Pseudo Collagen; has been extracted from the intra-cellular matrix of yeast cells. It helps bind moisture to the skin, aiding our skin's natural ability to do so. Collagen levels in our skin decrease as we age, so the psuedo collagen in this organic face serum can help retrain extra moisture, plumping and smoothing the skin.
Natural Vitamin E; is a powerful antioxidant, and the kind I use is extracted from sunflower seeds. It can help to partially absorb the sun's dangerous ultra-violet rays which are responsible for the reddening of the skin, sunburn and more serious damage. Natural Vitamin E works to prevent wrinkles, stimulates blood circulation and regulates the skin's elasticity. It's approximately four times more beneficial for the skin than synthetic Vitamin E, which is often found in high street skincare products.
Calendula; the petals of calendula flowers are antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, helping to soothe various skin issues like eczema and acne. Calendula is also known for its ability to brighten skin and protect from blemishes, whilst moisturising dryness and increasing collagen production.
Immortelle; is one of the best healing plant remedies for damaged skin tissue. It renews and restores healthy skin, as it is an antioxidant which repairs free radical damage and stimulates cellular regeneration.
