About the ingredients:
Raw cacao is full of antioxidants that help repair skin and flavanoids that reduce inflammation. It also contains copper, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc, which promote healthy cell growth. Cacao helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while stabilizing elastin and collagen.
Rosehips, the fruit of roses, are rich in vitamin A, or retinol, a popular vitamin for use in anti-aging formulations due to its ability to rejuvenate the skin and increase collagen production, as well as vitamin C, which also stimulates collagen production in the skin. They also contain a wealth of essential fatty acids.
Oatmeal contains 18 different amino acids and your skin can absorb these from a mask, making it an ideal ingredient to help heal blemishes and repair damaged skin. It also has skin-soothing properties and is hypoallergenic, so it can help to alleviate rashes and allergic reactions, as well as sunburn and other skin damage. Oatmeal is a humectant, which means that it helps your skin retain moisture and take on a glowing, dewy appearance.
Kaolin clay is a very fine and light clay that has natural absorbency properties. It is the mildest of all clays and is suitable for people with sensitive skin, helping to stimulate circulation to the skin while gently exfoliating and cleansing it. It does not draw oils from the skin, so it is great for dry skin types.
Ho wood essential oil has an earthy, rose wood aroma and helps to generate new cell growth, making it a powerful anti-aging ally. It purifies, detoxifies, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, firms and tones, and fades scars and age spots.
Rose hydrosol has a balancing effect on both dry and aging skin, as well as a slightly astringent effect that helps to reduce redness. Sebum production can be balanced by using rose water, making it great for either oily or dry skin. It’s also a natural aphrodisiac dating back thousands of years.
