Royal Jelly Extract

 

Royal Jelly Extract
Preserved with Leucidal Liquid

Royal Jelly was actually used by the Ancient Egyptian queens to keep their skin looking younger. It was even used on mummies to preserve the look of their skin.
As we age, our skins cell regeneration and collagen production slows down. Royal jelly extract can offset this process by promoting collagen production as well as moisturizing and protecting our skin. This prevents our skin from becoming thinner and therefore losing its flexibility causing those fine lines and wrinkles. If our skin is exposed to stress on a regular basis, such as extreme weather conditions and pollution, the aging process can significantly accelerate accentuating the unwanted aged look. All of us would all like for our skin to feel and look tighter and for our fine lines and wrinkles to diminish. Royal Jelly Extract is an elegant solution for younger looking skin.
When used on the skin, Royal Jelly can promote cell and tissue repair while simultaneously enhancing collagen production. The vitamins and minerals in royal jelly help to keep the skin hydrated and moisturized, which is essential to fighting wrinkles and aged looking skin. Royal jelly extracts have also been found to contain a powerful antibacterial protein, royalactin, which can help to repair damaged skin, clear up infections, and keep skin looking healthy.  Royal Jelly Extract can be beneficial in rejuvenating our skin and keeping its healthy glow

Sea Kelp Bioferment

    Sea Kelp BioFerment SF is a fermented sea kelp extract that has been derived by fermentation of Sea Kelp using lactobacillus. Fermentation is one of the oldest technologies used by different peoples and cultures throughout the world for food preservation. Products such as cheese, bread, and wine have been produced, and consumed, for thousands of years by way of various fermentation techniques. Most fermentation is carried out via lactic acid bacteria (LAB) also known as lactobacilli. Fermentation acts as a preservative for foods, enabling smooth digestion, as well as increases the production of vitamins, minerals, and various other phyto-chemicals, depending upon the plant being fermented. The fermentation process converts ingredients from an inactive form to a bio-active form that our bodies can easily recognize and therefore process more efficiently.  Sea Kelp BioFerment SF was designed specifically to provide the benefits associated with sea kelp.

    Due to its high concentration of vitamins and minerals Sea Kelp BioFerment SF can be used in a wide variety of cosmetic and personal care applications which are intended to deliver nutrients and providing moisturizing properties. As an added benefit this unique ingredient can be used to capitalize on trends for minerals and sea inspired ingredients in cosmetics. However, given the nature of Sea Kelp BioFerment, it can also be used to convey both a sense of luxury and tradition.

 

 

 

 

 

Sea Kelp BioFerment SF, a natural film former, can also be used as a base or can be added to formulations for creams, toners, shampoos, lotions and other personal care products.

Organic Dehydrasome Plump

Want full, supple lips? This is the all natural lip plumper!! Vegan!

Organic Dehydrasomes consist of certified organic phospholipids that are dispersed in biomimetic certified organic sunflower oil. When the Dehydrasomes are applied to the skin, the hydrophilic portions of the phospholipids naturally migrate to hydrophilic environments where they assemble into a multivesicular system. The moisture in our skin causes these vesicles to swell and minimize the appearance of fine lines or plump the lips. Because the vesicles penetrate the stratum corneum and bind with the moisture present, they can inhibit trans‐epidermal water loss (TEWL) to increase moisturization. The Dehydrasomes also enhance the delivery of the active extracts. We have different Organic Dehydrasome products and they all have the same swelling capabilities, but each contain a blend of different certified organic extracts.
One of the most consistent trends in cosmetics as of late is the desire for full, supple looking lips, as is evident by the women viewed as today’s modern day beauty icons. Yet, it has been difficult for formulators to merge this trend with the growing organics movement in both cosmetic and personal care industries, until now.
Organic Dehydrasome Plump can be used in certified organic make up formulations to plump the lips. It also contains yeast extract that provides both nutritive and conditioning benefits. Yeast extract is understood to be an excellent source of polysaccharides, amino acids, proteins, B vitamins and minerals. Organic Dehydrasome Plump utilizes dehydrated organic phospholipids that are dispersed in a biomimetic certified organic sunflower oil as its primary plumping mechanism.
When Organic Dehydrasome Plump is applied to the skin, the hydrophilic portions of the phospholipids naturally migrate to the hydrophilic environments where they interdigitate with the basket weave structure on the surface of our lips and assemble into a multi‐vesicular system. After coming in contact with the moisture in our lips, water causes the vesicles to swell thus eliciting a plumping effect. Since the organic phospholipids bind with moisture they may also be used to prevent trans‐epidermal water loss (TEWL) thus allowing the lips remain hydrated while achieving a firm and supple aesthetic.

Alpha Hydroxy Fruit Acids

INCI  : Purified Water (and) Pyrus malus (Apple) Fruit Extract (and) Vaccinium myrtillus (Bilberry) Extract (and) Citrusmedica limonium (Lemon) Peel Extract (and) Citrus aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Extract (and) Carica papaya (Papaya) Leaf Extract (and) Gluconolactone (and) Sodium Benzoate AHA's (Alpha Hydroxy Acids)

 

Can act as a simple humectant that absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. When applied to the skin, these hydrated AHAs act to increase the water content of the skin and thus moisturize the outer layer of the skin and consequently make the skin softer and more flexible; The second method by which AHA's act is through exfoliation. The exfoliating action of AHAs occurs as a result of their ability to break the bonds between dead skin cells that form at the surface of the skin. Skin normally has a dead layer of cells at its surface, and AHAs can speed up the normal process of skin cell regeneration and sloughing. This results in increased flexibility of the skin as well as decreased formation of large dry skin flakes at the surface of the skin. Red to brown liquid, with a characteristic botanical odor. Water soluble. Add at cool down to formulations. APPLICATIONS Revitalizing treatments Exfoliating treatments Anti-aging products / treatments creams lotions toners serums Hair care products Use: 2% - 5% Storage: Store in a cool place, tightly sealed Shelf Life: 18 months when properly stored Please be aware that when you use Alpha Hydroxy Acid's on the skin you are exposing new skin, which is much more susceptible to UV damage.

You can copy and paste the text into your web browser or go to the FDA website and read the entire document, which is highly recommended. * Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards CAUTION :: As with all of the acids, it is important to let your skin acclimate to their use. For those who's skin is not used to the acids a slight stinging and redness may result. If this occurs, reduce usage to every other day for 2 weeks, before resuming daily application. If irritation persists, discontinue use. If you experience anything more than a slight stinging, or redness, discontinue use immediately. Any time that you experience discomfort, you can apply a 10% solution of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to neutralize the acid, then wash with soap and water to thoroughly remove any acid residue. If irritation develops, or persists, seek medical advise.

Hydrolyzed Goat Milk

Want to add Goats Milk to your products without the expense of the goats milk powder? Here's your answer! 
Goat Milk Hydrolysate can be easily absorbed by the skin, to provide superior conditioning and moisturizing benefits. Goat milk has been used since ancient times to heal and nourish skin and was referred to as a natural cleanser. It is one of the finest moisturizers with excellent emollient properties, making it a popular ingredient in a variety of skin and hair care products.
Goats’ milk structure and composition is the reason for many of its benefits. Goats’ milk has an alkaline pH, which makes it unique and more compatible with the human body while being rich in many vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Some of the vitamins include vitamins A, B vitamins and vitamin C, all of which are necessary to repair damaged skin tissue and are needed in order to maintain healthy skin. Natural alpha-hydroxy acids, such as lactic acid, are also present within its composition which can act as a natural exfoliator to remove dead cells from the skins surface, thus enhancing the skin’s natural moisture levels. The amino acids present are needed for cells to regrow, maintain, and function properly throughout the body.
Milk is associated with its high content of calcium and protein and goats’ milk is no different. FSS Goat Milk Hydrolysate is composed of milk proteins that are hydrolyzed down to the molecular weight of approximately 2,000 to 4,000 Da. These hydrolyzed milk proteins are essential for enhancing hydration and moisture retention. FSS Goat Milk Hydrolysate provides intense hydration and conditioning benefits when used in skincare applications yet are gentle enough to the skin for the use in a wide variety of products.
