The main active natural nutrients of the cream are:
Borage (Borrago officinalis)
Though borage oil is less well known than oenothera oil, whose reputation is now firmly established, it is even richer in gamma-linolenic acid.
Properties for cosmetics
Exceptionally rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin A, D, E, and K, this oil offers powerful regenerative properties for the skin. It makes skin supple, flexible, and strong, particularly when used on dry, lifeless and tired skin. Used here in much higher active doses than usual, borage oil unleashes its many beneficial qualities, particularly its action on prostaglandins, thus soothing inflammatory conditions.
Sea-buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoïdes)
Sea-buckthorn is a thorny shrub that cannot live without light, to the point where the plant actually dies if it is surrounded by tall trees. It seeks sun, salty terrain, and forms impenetrable hedges along the coasts of the Channel and North Sea.
Medicinal and cosmetic properties
Sea-buckthorn has two specific elements that seem to have a beneficial effect on burns, eczema and dermatitis: palmitoleic acid, a rare fatty acid, and carotenoid. In addition, its high levels of tocopherol (vitamin E), a recognised antioxidant, limit oxidation processes within epidermal layers. The result of these properties is that when sea-buckthorn is used regularly, it contributes to keeping skin beautiful, reducing sclerosis and slowing the development of wrinkles.
Primrose oil (Oenothera biennis)
Still called “evening star” and “evening primrose”, oenothera originated in North America, appearing in Europe only starting in the 18th century. The plant was well known by the Indians for its medicinal and nutritive properties. When mature, the flower’s capsules contain hundreds of very small brown seeds, from which the oil is extracted. Its richness in essential fatty acids, particularly gamma-linolenic acid, makes it a useful ingredient in cosmetics, especially for reducing water loss in upper epidermal layers.
Properties for cosmetics
Rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, oenothera oil protects skin from premature aging. Its fatty acids, which protect the cell membrane, offer highly effective regenerative properties: softness, revitalising, restructuring and truly anti-wrinkle. Whether skin is greasy, dry or simply normal, oenothera oil regulates moisture levels and protects skin from outside aggression (such as from sun, cold, wind and pollution).
