Formulation full analysis

The Good

Aloe Vera is incredibly soothing for many skin types, and serves as an anti-inflammatory. It’s incredibly hydrating due its high water content and includes many rich antioxidants such as Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C, as well as active enzymes that nourish the skin surface. Many manufacturers find this ingredient particularly useful in large quantities due to its effectiveness as a skin moisturiser, as well as its ability to cool the skin. Not only is this music to a beach-goer’s ears, but those who naturally hold more heat in their skin will benefit from buying skincare products that use Aloe Vera as a core component.

Rose Hydrosol is distilled rose water – one of the most-high quality methods of creating rose water as the distillation process leaves the solution with small amount of rose oil. Roses are renowned in the beauty industry to calm sensitives in irritated skin. They have a myriad of antimicrobial powers present in their petals and as they are almost identical to our skin’s pH levels, rose can be the perfect ingredient for oil control. The astringent quality helps to diminish redness, usually caused by enlarged capillaries just under the skin’s surface.

Green Coffee Bean are unroasted seeds of the plant Coffea Arabica. As the natural antioxidants are removed during the coffee roasting process, the unroasted seeds are preferred to deliver therapeutic benefits in cosmetics. Green Coffee Bean Extract contains high amount of micronutrients called polyphenols improve skin’s hydration, and more importantly, moisture retention. This, in turn, significantly improves skin dryness, the skin’s surface pH due to its slightly more acidic chemical profile and improves blood flow to the area.   

Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant to protect your skin against free radical damage from the environment. It’s also an essential nutrient for collagen production with free radicals tend to destroy. Vitamin C a key ingredient in anti-ageing skincare as it brightens and smooths the complexion from hyperpigmentation, as well as provides treatment to photo-damaged skin from UV rays.
