Currently I am working on creating a luxury face cream, a natural alternative, naturally! These days most of the big cosmetic giants find it only too easy to throw together a few ill researched, badly formulated synthetic ingredients, masked with a sweet cloying fragrance and then charge you extortionate amounts to buy it. Well no more I say! No more! My face cream will not only be effective, but use 100% natural ingredients and have a unique, pure and gently fragrant scent. The main ingredients in my face cream will be:
Organic Bulgarian Rose Water
Acne preventing, anti inflammatory, balancing, anti-aging, cleansing and detoxifying with genuine, rose scented distilled water taken from Rose Flowers.
Anti-oxidant, protects against UV radiation, excellent moisturiser, anti-inflammatory, wound healing, anti-aging.
High in polyunsaturates, helps to tone and tighten skin, good for oily skin and acne, antioxidant, skin moisturising.
Sweet Almond Oil
Includes Vitamins A, B and C, easily absorbed, good for dry, sensitive skin and eczema, can provide relief from muscle pain, improves complexion, a good skin lubricant and can help with itching and inflammation.
As you know, all Essential Oils have Therapeutic Properties, some more then others. In addition to there health benefits they are also aromatic compounds and provide enjoyment, relaxation and sensuality through there aroma’s. For my skin cream I am considering making a Rose & Bergamot scented face cream or perhaps even Geranium.
Anti-depressant, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, bactericidal, anti-viral.
Bergamot Essential Oil
Anti- depressant, used in the treatment of eczema, psoriasis, antiseptic, anti-biotic.
Geranium Essential Oil
Uplifting, balancing, helps in the treatment of acne, bruises, burns, cuts, poor circulation, sore throat.
I might also include the wonder-gel Aloe Vera in my recipe to restore, cleanse, soothe and promote skin renewal.
My facial cream will be 100% natural and organic, using a vegan emulsifying wax to bind the oils and water together and excluding synthetic preservatives. This means that the expiry date on them
won’t be as long as most store bought creams but you will be able to refrigerate them to extend there lifespan and you’ll feel great knowing that this has been made freshly for you, with ingredients that are completely safe to use on your skin, and as they won’t be extortionately priced you will be able to buy more when yours runs out without breaking the bank. Each batch will be made fresh to order.
Once I have sourced the correct packaging, I am thinking perhaps a frosted glass jar like my body souffle’ kilner jars, I will have it up on notonthehighstreet available for you to buy!
