Common comfrey is an herb that in remarkable ways enhances the rejuvenation of damaged skin, muscles and bones. When used externally the dermis absorbs it very quickly, while the allantoin content enhances the rejuvenation of damaged cells. Additionally, its styptic properties decrease the swelling of wounds. It also possesses anaesthetic properties.
Arnica montana, thanks to its rare combination of active substances, has extraordinary medicinal properties. Arnica flowers contain substances with a vast array of effects, such as sesquiterpene lactones, helenalin, many flavonoids, phytosterols, carotenoids, triterpenes, tannins, and organic acids. It is easily absorbed through the epidermis, reaching the deeper skin layers and the capillary vessels, causing them to constrict and enhancing their walls. Arnica stimulates blood circulation, thus dispersing accrued fluids from damaged tissue, while also possessing extremely strong anti-inflammatory properties. It also has exceptional warming and analgesic properties.
Coumarin in the yellow sweet clover herb extract strengthens the lymphatic vessels and invigorates blood circulation, preventing the breakage of minor bloods vessels and their thrombosis.
Grape seed oil is the richest source of linoleic acid and natural vitamin E, an ideal antioxidant. Additionally, it contains vitamin B6, lecithin, anti-oxidant flavonoids and resveratrol, as well as various minerals. As a result, it helps suppress skin-aging processes, regenerating and nourishing the skin, while it also has tonic, anti-inflammatory and irritation soothing properties.
After use on the skin, it is fully absorbed without leaving an oily layer. The skin becomes smooth and shiny, its firmness and tension improves, while the lipid structure of the epidermis is strengthened. Shea butter, known also as karité butter (from the French word for LIFE), is an aromatic fat obtained from the nut of the African shea tree.
It acts as a natural UV filter, and it has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-aging properties, as well as helping eliminate stretch marks. It is also an exceptional medicinal compound, as it stimulates the faster scarring of wounds and burns. Additionally, it contains vitamin F, which brings relief to tired, tense and hurting muscles, thus helping them to relax.
Oleic and stearic acid constitutes up to 90% of the butter. The amount of unsaturated fatty acids considerably exceeds that which can be found in cocoa butter and other natural vegetable butters. Unsaturated fatty acids are the key ingredient of skin rejuvenation and moisturization – thanks to its deep penetration, it helps oil and moisturize the skin. Shea butter helps to maintain moisture and decrease water loss by creating a protective barrier on the skin’s surface by binding water (it lowers the TEWL level), thus preventing excessive skin dryness or exfoliation.
Simultaneously, it is ideally absorbed without leaving an oily layer, while remaining in the deeper skin layers for longer. Undeniably, thanks to its origin, it adds a touch of the exotic to the cosmetics.
Natural beeswax creates an occlusive membrane (film) on the skin’s surface, which helps prevent excessive water loss on the surface (this has an indirect moisturizing effect). As a result, it helps nurture, i.e. smooth and soften the skin, bringing about a shine and exhibiting regenerative properties. Honey enthusiasts are also entranced by its marvellous sweet scent.
