GerlindeNaturals Skin Recovery Night Cream has been specifically formulated to soothe and nourish dry and irritated skin over night.
Deep penetrating, easily absorbed and highly moisturising carrier oils like Rosehip Seed, Starflower and Macadamia help naturally soothe your skin and on top of it give your skin a smooth look and feel.
Skin Recovery contains also valuable ingredients like Yarrow and Hyaluronic Acid (find a detailed description below).
Starflower Oil helps your skin to retain moisture, aids faster cell regeneration and softens your skin beautifully. The high levels of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) will help restore the barrier function of your skin and act as an anti-inflammatory that can soothe dry skin and itchiness. It also helps to fight the loss of skin elasticity.
The properties of Rosehip Seed Oil reach from cell and tissue regeneration (wrinkles and scars, over exposure to sunlight) to soothing inflammations. The area of scar treatment is one where Rosehip Seed Oil historically has had immense success and it is an effective, non-invasive product to reduce fine lines, improve uneven pigmentation, UV damage and the skins elasticity.
Organic Rosehip Seed Oil contains Vitamin E and C which has nearly equal percentages of Alpha-Linolenic and Linoleic Acids, a good source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids, trans-retinoic acid (precursor of Vitamin A) and therefore promotes collagen formation.
Macadamia Nut Oil is deeply moisturising and contains high amounts of Palmitoleic Acid (Omega 7) which is a naturally ocurring fatty acid produced by the sebaceous glands and as we age the production of Palmitoleic Acid decreases. The high Palmitoleic Acid amount in Macadamia Nut Oil protects the skin against cellular breakdown in wounds and skin abrasions.
Yarrow has become famous in herbal medicine as one of the earliest indications of human’s use of medicinal plants. Yarrow derived its Latin name, Achillea millefollium, from the mythical greek character Achilles and the plant was given to him by the centaur Chiron so he could use it on the battlefield. Yarrow has wonderful anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties.
Hyaluronic acid is a special protein that exists naturally in all living organisms. As we age, the body produces less Hyaluronic Acid and therefore the skin becomes dry and wrinkly.
We add Hyaluronic Acid as a very powerful humectant that can bind a 1000 times its own weight in water and helps your skin to retain water for hydration, which in turn plumps up your skin. HA also allows the delivery of other components of a cream deeper into the skin.
Its hydrating properties result in increased skin smoothness and softens the appearance of wrinkles.
(Please note that the Hyaluronic Acid we are using is made by producing enzymes from a bacteria-based biofermentation process and NOT sourced from poultry (roosters' combs), as are many others.)
All these wonderful ingredients plus Geranium/Rose Floral Water and Essential Oils like Chamomile produce a lovely rich and silky natural cream, that gets easily absorbed and provides a good alternative to harsh synthetical products.
Directions: After cleansing gently massage Skin Recovery Night Cream into face and neck.
