Follow us on a tour to a naturally fresh and beautiful skin with rose, aloe vera and green tea. Your skin will thank you!

 

Rose From Bulgaria, Turkey and Iran

Ancient Greeks and Romans were ahead of their time: many centuries ago, they were already using rose in their baths, which offered a calming effect and left a soft, floral perfume on their skin. Indeed, the rose is a naturally fragrant flower that is deeply soothing and hydrating, making it a perfect ingredient in milks and moisturizers; its anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce the redness of irritated skin, and soothe acne, dermatitis and eczema. It nourishes dry and sensitive skins while helping ease the feeling of tightness. Its high vitamin C content and antioxidant properties help protect cells against damage. Plus, rose is a great cleanser and helps remove oil and dirt accumulated in the pores.

 

Aloe vera From Mexico

In need of serious hydration? Quench your skin with aloe vera, a powerful moisturizing ingredient. This juicy plant is full of hydrating and soothing properties that give your skin the boost it needs after a long day or night, or as part of your daily routine. It also reduces stretch marks and acne, and helps lighten blemishes and scars. Perfect for normal and combination skin, it can reduce signs of aging and improve the skin’s firmness and elasticity. With 200 biologically active amino acids, a high vitamin and antioxidant content, it’s one of nature’s best ingredients for toners, washes and moisturizers. It is easy to see why it is known as the plant of immortality!

 

Green Tea From China

Ideal for hydrating combination to oily skin, green tea is a powerful purifier, as it helps to detoxify and restore the skin’s natural balance. Its high catechin content helps prevent cell damage, which is one cause of premature aging signs. It is wonderful moisturizer, and its antimicrobial compounds also make it perfect for toners and washes. Plus, the EGCG antioxidant found in green tea has anti-acne properties, and the tannins it contains help make pores smaller, which makes the complexion more even and glowing.
