SKIN FIRMING AND REDUCING APPEARANCE OF SKIN LINES WITH HERBAL FORMULATIONS
Over the centuries, the efficacy of several natural ingredients has been recognized in treating the scars or spots on skin. In a recent paper in ‘Dermatology and Therapy’ journal, it has been confirmed that the herbal formulations can treat surgical scars more effectively.
According to the paper, many medical products have been used in preventing hypertrophic scarring of skin, but an optimal treatment method has not been established yet. However, while testing a herbal gel recently, experts found demonstrative effect of the potential of herbs in scar prevention. After experimenting with selected patients who had undergone symmetric surgical procedures, herbal gel was applied on their scars for 12 weeks which were routinely photographed and studied. The results showed improvement in color, stiffness or firmness of the skin, and no side effects were detected. The herbal formulation was thus found effective in preventing scarring of the surgical area.
As a matter of fact, use of natural ingredients has produced far more effective and safe results on the skin than most of the chemical-based products. In skin care, all the ingredients which are used to revitalize skin have the same effect as firming up the aging skin. For example, lemon oil is very effective in purifying, revitalizing and uplifting skin as lemon consists of 68% d-limonebne which is a powerful antioxidant. Rubia Cordifolia is another ingredient which acts as good skin tonic. There are other humectants which promote water retention by skin by attracting and binding water to it. Vegetable glycerin is a humectant made from combining water and vegetable oil. Soliga Forest Honey is also used as a light humectant and nutrient used as a thickening agent.
We have combined such powerful rich ingredients in Rejuvenating Serum and Radiant Serum. With selected essential oils, these provide excellent nutrients to the skin and help it in firming up. These are aloe based and contain tea extract, emulsifying wax, kosher vegetable glycerin, vitamin E, Vitamin B3 besides a fine blend of Elegance.
