Amazon and google checkouts are making ordering our lovely products easier all the time, and this year we saw more orders for the holidays than we were ever prepared for. The new year is keeping us busy too. I'd like to go into some detail on a couple of our products.
Stress Recovery Complex
Stress is only second to sunlight in terms of aging. The hormones triggered by it undermines the skin, and at its core lowers your immune system and increases inflammation (which is now recognized as the root of all aging processes) along with other nasty side effects. It basically aggravates everything in your skin, similar to the way it aggravates your emotions.
Stress Recovery Complex was made to help combat these effects on the skin. Targetting tension lines, redness, discomfort, and "stress breakouts", 97% of our consumers have reported softer, silkier skin within the first use, 80% report decreases in the signs of stress on the skin and would recommend this product.
It contains no synthetic fragrances, colorants, or parabens so it's safe for sensitive skin. What makes it work: Cortinhib (Helichrysum italicum extract) inhibits cortisol's visible effects on the skin. Calmosensine is a patented natural peptide mimic that relaxes visible tension lines and wrinkles especially on the eyes and forehead. Add some Renovage (Teprenone) to support cell vitality, improve hydration, firmness, and elasticity and it's a potion created with a very specific purpose.
Warning: Science-oriented stuff! To describe a bit how your cells work: cells are always looking for homeostasis, which is a middle ground, most comfortable position in its environment. If there is not enough of something (moisture for example), the cells release the water inside of them to compensate. If there is too much, the cell expands to try and compensate by intaking a bit more than comfortable. Stress (to keep with the example, a desert environment) can cause the cells to constantly work too hard, resulting in more dying or working less efficiently. When the cells have everything they need (like moisturizing your skin everyday and replenishing the nutrients they need) the work load is smoother and lighter and the cells settle down to represent this.
Firming Peptide Eye Cream
This eye cream is simply amazing. Firming algae peptides and sea water, plant extracts, and again fragrance, color, and paraben free combine to make skin soft, smooth, moisturized and firm. It starts with making the skin comfortable and fresh, and within days dryness-induced fine lines are minimized. One can expect aging contours to diminish with continued use.
The active ingredients: Matrixyl 3000 - Collagen-stimulating peptide complex supports skin's tissue renewal process. Dermachlorella - Peptide-rich microalgae from the shores of Brittany stimulates wrinkle-fighting collagen and firming elastin, and help protect the skin from destruction. Grapeleaf, Black Currant, Passionflower are all firming plant complexes that protect the skin and work to maintain elasticity and flexibility. Finishing it off with Pheohydrane (micheral-rich algae peptides and sea water) helps to hydrate skin (up to a week from a single application!!).
