Winter Skin by Glomalin®

I must admit, I love winter! So, when we were developing our line of skincare products, in addition to botanical ingredients and staying chemical free, we wanted products that would nourish the skin and contribute to the skin’s overall health when cold outdoor temperatures and hot and dry indoor environments can take their toll on its look and feel.    To help you decide which product(s) is better for your winter skincare needs; I’m going to share with you Glomalin products and their ingredients, that are beneficial this time of year:

Moisturizing Face Cream: Avocado Oil - Cold pressed avocado oil is one of the richest sources of beneficial monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid. Not only is avocado oil extremely good at hydrating and softening your skin, it is also often recommended as an effective treatment for acne and blackheads, eczema, and other forms of skin inflammation. Apricot Kernel Oil - Apricot kernel oil is rich in gamma linoleic acid, or GLA, which comes from essential fatty acid omega-6. The GLA content in apricot kernel oil helps skin to maintain moisture balance. Additionally, organic apricot kernel oil contains vitamin A and E, which soothe the skin and slow signs of aging.

Rosewater Toner: Rosewater - Rosewater helps maintain the skin's pH balance, and also controls excess oil. Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the redness of irritated skin, get rid of acne, dermatitis and eczema.

Anti-Aging Face Serum: Argan Oil - acts as an effective moisturizer, it can also give skin a youthful glow and reduces the visibility of wrinkles. Its antioxidant effect makes Argan oil the ideal anti-aging product. It restores elasticity and leaves skin feeling plumper and softer. Rosehip Seed Oil - Harvested from the seeds of rose bushes predominately grown in Chile, rosehip seed oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin, all while reducing scars and fine lines. Frankincense - is a powerful astringent, meaning it helps protect skin cells. It can be used to help reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, prevent wrinkles, and it even helps lift and tighten skin to naturally slow signs of aging. Lavender - ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect the scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation, and treat respiratory problems. The Latin name of lavender is Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to its aroma which has a particularly clean scent. Patchouli - Patchouli oil has long been used in traditional Asian medicine, especially in Malaysia, China, and Japan. It is used to treat skin problems, such as dermatitis, eczema, acne, and dry chapped skin. It also has wound healing and scar reducing properties.

Coconut Oil Cleanser: Coconut Oil - Coconut oil is a powerful moisturizer that is beneficial to restore dry or flaking skin. The Vitamin E found in coconut oil soothes eczema, sunburn and psoriasis, and its antiviral and antifungal benefits even help to treat bug bites. Coconut oil contains 3 fatty acids: capric acid, lauric acid and caprylic acid. Lemon - increasing the luster of dull skin. It is astringent and detoxifying in nature and rejuvenates sagging or tired-looking skin. Its antiseptic properties help in treating pimples and various skin disorders. Lemon is also recommended for reducing excessive oil on the skin.

Moisturizing Hand & Body CreamAvocado Oil, Jojoba Oil -Some of the compounds found in jojoba oil are almost instantly absorbed into the skin, where they form a protective shield around the skin cells, preventing them from losing any additional moisture. This also helps in preventing cracked heels. The hydrating properties of this oil can prevent skin flaking and protect the cells that are most vulnerable to outside elements. Grapeseed Oil - Grapeseed oil can improve your skin’s elasticity and softness. Research has shown that grapeseed oil can improve skin’s moisture, softness and ability to bounce back. Grapeseed oil helps the vitamin E and vitamin C in your skin to be more efficient and effective at preserving your skin.  Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter - Cocoa butter is rich in polyphenols and other bioactive compounds that make it a prized ingredient in skin care formulations. Its richness may promote qualities like hydration, smoothness and retexturizing of the skin.  Lavender Essential Oil, Sweet Orange Essential Oil - Citrus fruits are known to provide high levels of vitamin C that help protect and heal skin, making oranges one of the best vitamin C foods around. Orange oil, like other citrus oils, comes from the peel of the fruit and research shows that orange peel contains even higher levels of vitamin C than the fruit itself! So, this means that orange essential oil is also very beneficial for fighting signs of aging like wrinkles and dark spots since its high vitamin C content means it can help to promote the production of collagen.

Winter Hand & Foot BalmSunflower Oil - Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can help protect skin from free radicals and from adverse effects of the sun, such as premature aging and wrinkles. Using a skincare product formulated with sunflower oil is a good way to obtain vitamin E’s benefits for skin. Linoleic acid helps to maintain the skin’s natural barrier, supporting its ability to retain moisture. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect when used topically. This makes it beneficial for dry skin and for conditions such as eczema. Avocado Oil, Olive Oil - Olive oil is packed with healthy vitamins, fats, and antioxidants, and these components can contribute to healthier-looking skin. It moisturizes skin by locking in moisture, and its antioxidants can help to improve signs of aging. Moisturizes the skin: Olive oil contains squalene and vitamin E. Squalene supports the skin’s moisture retention, whereas vitamin E increases the skin’s capacity to absorb and retain water. Reduces the signs of aging: Olive oil is rich in antioxidants. These compounds can combat oxidative stress, which is associated with skin aging. They can also increase collagen in the skin.  Promotes wound healing: Olive oil also has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, which can aid in wound healing. Studies show that olive oil may be able to promote healing of diabetic foot ulcers and prevent pressure ulcers. Shea Butter - full of all-natural vitamin A, 100 percent pure, unrefined, raw shea butter can improve numerous skin conditions such as blemishes and wrinkles, stretch mark prevention during pregnancy, muscle fatigue, dermatitis, and radiation treatments for certain medical problems. Shea butter, also called Butyrospermum parkii, is extremely moisturizing and very hydrating. When applied to the skin, it provides immediate softness and smoothness.  The National Center for Biotechnology Information published a study indicating that shea nuts and shea fat (shea butter) constitute a significant source of anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor promoting compounds. Another study from the American Journal of Life Sciences claims that shea butter boosts collagen production, demonstrating some major anti-aging potential.
