About the ingredients:
Frankincense hydrosol is produced through a water-steam distillation from organic Boswellia carteri resin. It is toning and antiseptic, and is useful for combating signs of aging, large pores, and uneven complexion. It also promotes healthy cell regeneration. This ingredient has been used for its healing properties for centuries!
Witch Hazel extract tones skin and minimizes pores. It has strong astringent properties, absorbs oil from the skin and fights against the bacteria that cause acne. It’s not over-drying, so even those with sensitive or mature skin can use it. This also makes it beneficial for those with eczema and psoriasis, because it can help to control outbreaks without irritating skin.
Aloe Vera gel moisturizes the skin without leaving a greasy residue. It contains anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Aloe leaves contain antioxidants including beta carotene, vitamin C and E that help improve the skin’s natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated.
Vegetable Glycerin works as a humectant in tandem with water. It helps your skin to retain its natural moisture.
Lactobacillus ferment is a natural, plant-based probiotic preservative created by the fermentation of Lactobacillus in a defined growth medium. Lactobacillus is one of the species of microorganisms used to produce fermented products such as sauerkraut and kimchi from cabbage. Like many members of the lactic acid bacteria family, Lactobacillus is capable of restricting the growth of other microorganisms by acidifying its environment. However, in addition to acidifying its environment, Lactobacillus also produces novel antimicrobial peptides, also known as bacteriocins, that are capable of providing broad spectrum antimicrobial protection.
Bay laurel essential oil is added for its spicy, herbaceous scent. Bay laurel was a symbol of wisdom, peace, and protection for the Romans. In Greek mythology, the nymph Daphne escaped Apollo’s relentless attentions by having her father, the river god Peneus, turn her into a laurel tree. Apollo, finding he could not have her as his wife, used his powers of eternal youth to make Daphne’s laurel leaves evergreen and took the bay laurel as his emblem.
