Calming Phyto-Nutrient Toner
This gentle toner soothes and revitalizes sensitive, inflamed and dry skin.
Product Highlights: The anti-inflammatory properties calm irritations, while nourishing elements improve skin elasticity and promote cell renewal. Human skin undergoes continuous changes throughout life due to external factors such as sunlight, pollution, climate change, and pH. Aging skin becomes overly dry, wrinkled, and often sags. The phyto-nutrient calming toner has improved with the addition of a new ingredient; water and saccharomyces lysate extract. This powerful enzyme rejuvenates skin due to its ability to stimulate oxygen uptake in the skin fibroblasts. Stimulation of the dermal fibroblasts produces collagen and elastin which repair damage to skin. The yeast extract also acts as a soothing anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant. It has line minimizing, cell renewing and proliferating properties while smoothing and moisturizing the skin and increasing cell respiration. The calming properties of neroli floral water and essential oil as well as organic bulgarian rosewater, nourish stressed and damaged skin. Organic lavender and ylang ylang essential oils bring balance and harmony to dry or sensitive skin. The freshness of pink grapefruit and cleansing properties of willowbark extract awaken your skin and give it new vitality. The product is preserved with a natural vegetable sourced glycine. Saccharomyces lysate extract: Over 600 species of yeast exist with most well known being Saccharmoyces cereisiae, or baker’s (brewer’s) yeast. Although live yeast cells are known for their fermentation properties, the benefits of yeast in the cosmetic world are fairly new. This extraction provides significant increases to cellular respiration, cell metabolism, and cell proliferation. By stimulating oxygen consumption, it combats skin irritation helping to reduce, or reverse the actual stress presented to the human skin cell. Methylsilanol Mannuronate, is a derivative of silicon that provides long lasting moisturization. It fights free radicals by working to reorganize the membrane lipids,improving the cell membranes’ resistance to free radical attack. It also has an antiglycation action that helps combat the deterioration of the collagen and elastin fibers that effect skin over time. Last but not least, the anti-inflammatory action helps to protect skin by inhibiting cellular infiltration of organisms which cause irritation and triggers inflammatory reactions within the skin. Its soothing effect makes it a perfect ingredient for most skin products. Willowbark extract is from a tree which is found in the eastern part of North America. It is famous for its dark brown rigid bark. The fresh bark is rich in tannins and salicylic acid like materials. Following time honored shamanistic traditions, the extract is made by an aqueous infusion technique from freshly harvested bark collected in the spring. The freshly prepared extract has been reported to have analgesic, antiseptic, astringent, anti-pyretic, and anti-inflammatory properties. Salicylic acid, at use levels of around 0.5% to 1.0% has been shown to enhance skin cell turnover. This cell renewal is accompanied by a general improvement in the appearance of the skin. The smoothing effect results in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Salicylic acid which in its natural form, contributes the same effects to those seen from the synthetic acid, yet has none of the drawbacks associated with the synthetic, mainly irritation.
Directions: This delightfully floral toner may be misted on the face, neck and body as often as desired. It may be applied after cleansing or shaving and throughout the day to refresh and renew the skin’s moisture level as well as balance sebum production and stimulate circulation.
