What You Need to Know About Your Skin
With increasing age, our sebum production naturally decreases, so that mature skin can often become very dry. This can make fine lines clearer and at the same time make the skin a little dull or lackluster.
What ingredients should I look for in my products?
Refill: Very dry and mature skin requires products with a high water content and greasy natural oils. Water is forced into the skin to increase hydration, while fatty oils like macadamia help to fill and protect the skin's moisture barrier, essentially blocking the hydration.
Quenching: In addition to water, other important active ingredients can help the skin to retain moisture. Hyaluronic acid has become a buzzword in skin care for good reason in recent years. It has the amazing ability to hold 1000 times its own weight in water, which dramatically improves hydration.
Our latest discovery, Black Elder, is a natural alternative that encourages the skin to produce its own hyaluronic acid by up to 25% to take full advantage of no irritation.
Regenerate: With increasing age our cell turnover slows down and the skin can appear dull or uneven. Regenerative ingredients like echium accelerate this process by replacing tired cells with fresh, healthy ones, smoothing fine lines and even improving the appearance of dark spots.

What ingredients should I avoid?
Cleansers: Avoid irritating and drying foam detergents such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), cocamidopropyl betaine and ammonium laureth sulfate throughout the body and in the body products.
These remove all valuable natural oils from your skin and leave them free, dry and more prone to reactions.
Alcohol: Alcohol has a similar effect on the skin – removes oils and leaves them very dry and unbalanced.
Integrate a simple facial massage: A simple facial massage can work wonders if you lift, tighten and plump the skin. It sounds a lot more difficult than it is – follow some straight forward movements like these and you will notice a difference in no time.
