French Clay

• Naturally absorbs excess oil
• Pulls bacteria and toxins to the surface of the skin
• Gently exfoliates away dead skin cells and sebum
• Rich in minerals that nourish the skin

Camelia Oil is a rich source of Palmistic and Omega-6 Linoleic fatty acids, as well as numerous anti-aging polyphenol antioxidants. It is non-greasy and an excellent all-around moisturizer for the skin.

Harvested Hibiscus petals, has a sort of magical reputation in skin care because it is a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs). Chemical forms of these acids can be overly harsh and damaging to the skin, but natural sources such as those in hibiscus can help provide the same benefits without the harsh drawbacks. AHAs are known to help exfoliate, control oily skin and clogged pores, all of which can encourage fresher, younger, and smoother looking skin. They also increase moisture and firm your skin’s look.

 

On top of the AHA activity are the antioxidants, which are called “anthocyanocides.” These not only protect the skin from environmental stressors but have properties that help pores to appear smaller. They also can help with sensitive skin.

The plant has a high mucilage content, which makes it a great skin moisturizer. Combine all these properties together and you have a wonderful anti-aging ingredient that with regular use, helps skin to appear more supple and flawless overall. Plus it has a lovely, natural scent.

Blue Chamomile is calming and cooling, Floracopeia’s organic blue chamomile oil is among the most supportive for a healthy inflammatory response to be found in nature’s pharmacopeia. … Its ability to nourish and restore healthy skin oil balance makes it an excellent natural support for skin health and beauty.

This mask smells like fresh berries and feels amazing on the skin.

Here are some of the reported benefits of the Maqui berry:

The Maqui berry contains high levels of polyphenols, anthocyanins, quercetin, flavonoids, along with omega fatty acids, iron, calcium, vitamin C and potassium making it a very highly nutritious, high antioxidant fruit that can help to improve the immune system. Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that are formed when your body breaks down food and is responsible for aging and tissue damage. Thus by reducing the number of free radicals in the body, it is believed that this will lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, and memory loss. The high antioxidant activity of the Maqui berry may also help to prevent the oxidation of the bad LDL cholesterol in the blood, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and stroke.

The high levels of anthocyanins in the Maqui berry also exhibit powerful anti-inflammatory properties that may help to reduce the amount of inflammation in bones and joints and reduce the onset of degenerative inflammation diseases. The Maqui berry’s anthocyanins contain a very high amount of delphinidins. Delphinidins is what gives the Maqui berry it’s rich deep purple color.

Delphinidins acts as a potent anti-inflammatory and has antiangiogenic properties. Antiangiogenic properties is used to stop the growth of tumors and the progression of cancers by limiting the formation of new blood vessels. Studies are being conducted to see whether delphinidins may be effective in inhibiting the growth of prostate and colon cancer cells.

Consuming the Maqui berry may cause a significant increase in the release of insulin in the body, which in turn helps to lower the circulating amount of glucose in the bloodstream and prevent the formation of new fat cells.

To show that the Maqui berry may be the new superfood, ponder this fact: the Acai berries contain ten times more antioxidant vitamins than grapes and twice as many as blueberries. The Maqui berry is reported to have an antioxidant level 4 to 30 times higher than the average Acai berry.

The Maqui berries currently contain the highest antioxidant value of any known superfruit.
