Skin Care Spotlight: The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

 

 

Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

This light-textured formula contains an extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine, supplemented with highly-purified Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG) from green tea leaves. Independent studies have shown that topical use of each of caffeine and EGCG can help reduce looks of puffiness and of dark circles in the eye contour. Additional studies have shown that caffeine can also reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Notes:

1. Hollowness in the eye contour as a result of structure of sub-dermal tissues like fat and bone can result in visible shadows under the eyes. This shadow, which is not to be mistaken for dark circles, cannot be addressed with topical skincare including this formula.

2. Fat deposits under the eye contour can create permanent puffiness in this area. This type of deposit cannot be improved with topical skincare, including this formula.

3. Supplied in UV-protective packaging as EGCG is sensitive to light.

 

Directions
Massage a small amount onto the eye contour AM and PM. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to our in-depth guide to patch testing. Keep out of reach of children.

 

Ingredients
Aqua (Water), Caffeine, Maltodextrin, Glycerin, Propanediol, Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside, Gallyl Glucoside, Hyaluronic Acid, Oxidized Glutathione, Melanin, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Seed Extract, Urea, Pentylene Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Xanthan gum, Lactic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Propyl Gallate, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Benzyl Alcohol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol.

About the company

One of the most well-known stories of the discovery of coffee dates back to the late 6th century. Legend suggests a goat herder named Kaldi in Ethiopian noticed a strange restlessness in his flock after they had eaten the berries and leaves of an unknown plant.

Word spread to Monks from a nearby monastery and after various trials discovered that by roasting, grinding and steeping in water the seeds of this plant created a unique drink with incredible benefits. This beverage helped to keep them focused and awake during their many hours of prayer. Word of this special drink spread far and wide – it was soon drunk in coffee houses as far as the holy cities of Mecca and Medina and soon spread throughout the Arab world. Read More

Skin Care Spotlight: Living Nature Charcoal Clay Mask

 

 

Living Nature’s certified natural Charcoal Clay Mask is formulated with natural anti-pollutant, skin detoxifying ingredients to restore skin balance and leave you with a healthy, refreshed, glowing complexion.

Air pollution is one of the main contributing environmental pollution risks to our health and especially our skin. Present in both cities and rural areas, pollutants suffocate your skin by accumulating on the surface; harmful chemicals and toxins can attach themselves to these particulates and penetrate pores. These harmful substances can diffuse into deeper layers and induce skin irritations, skin sensitivity and premature ageing, as well as a dull, dry complexion.

To combat skin pollution, Charcoal Clay Mask has been formulated to detox, purify and strengthen your skin’s protective layer with active Bincho Tan Charcoal and ‘super berry’ Schisandra Chinensis. Halloysite Clay absorbs excess oils and aids in drawing out impurities, and skin superfoods Avocado Oil and Coconut Oil work to feed, nourish and soften skin. Organic Manuka Honey and Shea Butter add moisture while reducing inflammation and anti-oxidant rich Vitamin E helps to fight free radical damage.

Suitable for all skin types
10 x 5ml sachets.

Skin Care Spotlight: EO Love & Flowers Rose Damascena Perfume

 

 

Love & Flowers Rose Damascena Perfume

Rich, delicate, and romantic. This single note rose oil perfume has deep floral notes and a sweet finish. Let blooming rose petals open your heart each time you wear it. Breathe. Believe. Receive.

Rose damascena is Susan’s favorite pure essential oil and is exceptionally rare: it takes the petals of 60 roses to make one drop. Our Bulgarian rose perfume is a calming, grounding single note that evokes feelings of love.

Scent Layering: An essential part of aromatherapy is the artful blending of oils. As you layer these perfume oils, notice how they enhance each other and create a unique scent that evolves with you throughout the day. Wear as you wish and reapply often.

 

Ingredients

Essential oil perfumes provide a unique aromatherapeutic experience that is deeply personal. Unlike synthetic fragrances, which are designed to smell the same on everyone, natural perfumes smell differently on each person.

We use organic jojoba oil as the base for this rose-scented perfume, then blend in vitamin e and organic castor oil, which helps the scent linger on your skin longer. Never any synthetic fragrances or phthalates.

 

Impact

We source our pure essential oils from trusted growers and distillers all over the world. These long-held relationships ensure we uphold our strict standards to source the same plant species every time, and that the oils remain unadulterated.

 

How to use

Make this romantic, floral rose-scented perfume part of your daily routine. Dab Rose Damascena perfume on your pulse points and press gently onto your skin. Wear alone or layer with other Love & Flowers pure essential oil perfumes to create your own signature scent.

Blend with woodsy Bohemian Sandalwood to add a touch of subtle brightness.

Layer with Namaste to enhance its geranium notes and create a sweet synergy that’s herbal, fresh, and citrusy, all at once.

 

 

About the company

For 23 years, we’ve been inspired to share our passion for nature’s pure essential oils. To blend their evocative scents with safe, natural, effective ingredients. And to live and work wholeheartedly, in a way that honors the well-being of all people and the planet we all share.

As they stirred a stockpot of shower gel in their garage in 1995, our founders Susan and Brad were focused on making the beautiful benefits of pure essential oils accessible to everyone. They had no idea where their journey might lead; they knew they had to follow their hearts. Read More
