Did you know that cosmeceuticals are the fastest growing sector of the cosmetic industry, and the future of antiaging cosmeceuticals in particular is very promising. Botanical extracts that support the health, texture, and integrity of the skin, hair, and nails are widely used in cosmetic formulations. They form the largest category of cosmeceutical additives found in the marketplace today due to the rising consumer interest and demand for natural products. Various plant extracts that formed the basis of medical treatments in ancient civilizations and many traditional cultures are still used today in cleansers, moisturizers, astringents, and many other skin care products.  Medicinal botanicals are utilized to heal and prevent dry skin. Arnica, aloe, green tea, and marigold are infused in this creamy cleanser which does not remove the oils of normal to dry skin. Many cleansers strip the oils of the skin which can leave the skin dull and accelerate the aging process by dehydrating the skin.  Arnica in particular acts as an anti inflammatory and promotes wound healing as well.


As always,

Be well,
