Did you know that it takes over 2,200 pounds of plant material to produce only 3 lb of this precious oil? This makes Helichrysum one of the most expensive and labor-intensive herbs to procure, and as an unfortunate result comes with a history of adulteration.
Helichrysum’s unique chemical compounds, such as curcumene, di-ketones, and neryl-acetate make this herb a superior skincare treatment that offers unparalleled anti-inflammatory and regenerative powers. Helichrysum stimulates the production of healthy skin cells, combats metabolic cellular aging, and therefore effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars.
There is many amazing plants to create skincare to make your skin glow. At I’m Fabulous Cosmetics, we uses ingredients like Salicylic acid, which is a great anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory compound ideal for gently purifying oily and breakout-prone skin, visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, easing redness and discomfort, decongesting clogged pores, and bringing a glow and radiance. But instead of using chemical Salicylic acid, we uses Gaultheria Procumbens (wintergreen) leaf extract which is the first 100% naturally-derived salicylic acid obtained from wintergreen leaves; an incredible alternative to traditional synthetic salicylic acid.
I’m Fabulous Cosmetics, uses a unique glass; patented Miron glass a amazing packaging know for keeping rare food products and medical marijuana fresh for long durations of time!

Consumers are allowing their skin to take center stage in 2021. With streamlined routines and “hero” ingredients remaining the focus, the need for hard-working, performative, and sustainable skincare has never been more critical according to Pinterest Predicts.
Plants are super food for the skin! So when you look at the full ingredient list of a product and it start with wonder, it means water is the base ingredients which is not very concentrated so you getting a little of the important ingredients to nourish your skin. You want to go with super concentrated products instead to make sure your skin is getting all the wonderful plant based ingredients that will hydrate, nourish, protect and feed your skin all the way. Usually based water products are less expensive because it cost much less to fabricate.
When skin becomes dehydrated, both its appearance and protective function begin to deteriorate. There are a number of factors that contribute to water-loss in the skin such as sweating, environmental stressors like UV radiation and pollution, changes in season, and of course, drinking insufficient amounts of water. In addition to these water-sapping contributors, the skin’s inherent ability to inhibit natural evaporation of water from within the body is diminished by the aging process. For example, ceramides produced by the body, together with skin cells, comprise skin’s moisture barrier. Ceramides are a type of waxy lipid (fatty) molecule present between the cells of the skin whose function is to keep water within the body. Think of the skin’s cells as bricks and ceramides the mortar that holds
the bricks together, thus forming the skin’s natural moisture barrier that inhibits water from prematurely escaping from the body. As a person ages, however, their body naturally produces fewer ceramides. This aging phenomenon, coupled with years of exposure to various environmental stressors, negatively impacts their ability to support the skin’s moisture barrier, leading to more rapid water loss and resulting in skin becoming dry, flaky and unhealthy. Moreover, because dry skin is known to be less flexible, stretchy than properly hydrated skin, it also starts to develop wrinkles. It is for precisely these reasons that added hydration via the external application of water-containing products onto the surface of the skin, is necessary.
One of the benefits of plant-based ingredients, both in medicine and natural skin care, is that your body automatically knows how to process them.
