Our anti-inflammatory active ingredients:
Kigelia fruit extract
This gifted active ingredient was originally used as a beauty treatment by African women since antiquity to firm up the bust. Rich in flavonoids (venous tonic that activates blood circulation) and saponin (firmness of the skin), it is mainly used for its composition rich in phytosterols with anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. In addition to these properties, kigelia exerts an immediate tightening and firming effect coupled with an anti-wrinkle action, and that's what we love!
Pomegranate vegetable oil
The pomegranate has always been good. Rich in antioxidants , it has many benefits, including that of exerting an anti-inflammatory action on the skin. The pomegranate fruits are cold pressed to preserve all the virtues and are transformed into oil. This natural, certified organic, preservative-free restorative antioxidant is particularly rich in nourishing fatty acids. It stimulates cell regeneration, increases the elasticity of the skin and exerts an anti-inflammatory action on the skin, a blessing for epidermis weakened by the cold in winter.
Mexican Astagache Extract
The Astagache plant is native to the southwestern USA and Mexico. It is recognized for its incredible anti-inflammatory properties linked to its richness in acacetin and tilianin, flavonoids with remarkable soothing powers. Used in cosmetics, Astagache extract visibly reduces skin inflammation and redness induced by stress or pollution. It improves the radiance of the complexion, calms irritations and restores the natural protection of the epidermis. Something to spend the winter smoothly.
Blackcurrant seed oil
Blackcurrant is delicious, but you should also know that this little red berry is rich in omega 3 (alpha linoleic acid) and omega 6 (gamma linoleic), fatty acids that are part of the composition of cell membranes. Blackcurrant oil is a great asset to fight against inflammation of the skin and strengthen the skin barrier. It quickly provides relief and well-being to skin sensitized by the cold.
Excerpt from “Ballon Vine”
A rather amusing name but real restorative qualities for this climbing plant of tropical origin formed of bell-shaped fruits containing small black seeds called "heart peas". Today it is also cultivated in Europe to treat dermatitis and eczema by homeopathy. Strongly anti-inflammatory , it soothes redness and itching while avoiding dehydration of the skin.
All of these active ingredients are found in the formula of our Soothing and Repairing Cream, and are added to our flagship raw material, Freshwater Collagen ® . A cream designed as an anti-inflammatory and soothing cocktail for all skin types seeking comfort during the winter. To be applied as soon as the need arises.
