This is the first step in our three part series for hyper-pigmentation, melasma, age spots, and dull skin.
We've taken our Melee Facewash Base and picked the perfect herb blend for you for pigmentation issues or even just for aging skin that we would like to see plump up again.
The herbs included are
Amla: Gallic Acid is prominent in Amla. This is now a common ingredient in skincare formulas to lighten the skin in a natural way by interrupting the production of melanin. I am not a fan of skin lightening, but using herbs that even out melanin production just generally work to create a more even skin tone. Especially after a sunny summer.
White Willow Bark Concentrate: concentrate powder Aged skin and acne. Scientific studies show improvement of lines and wrinkles within 1 week and very noticeable improvement in 6 weeks.
Horsetail* :Great source of silica and phosphorous which treats blemishes like acne and boils effectively. Important nutritive for aging skin. Horsetail is used internally for improvement in hair, skin, and nails for it's array of minerals and vitamins that help with collagen production.
Butcher's Broom*: Treatment for rosacea, constricts vessels and reduces swelling- also treats under eye puffiness and dark circles.
Cucumber Concentrate: An intense source of vitamin K, which is known to topically help skin heal faster, reduce dark circles and uneven skin tone, and assist with rosacea.
Barley Grass*: Delivers manganese, phosphorus, and copper, vitamin C, selenium (particularly helpful for skin elasticity). In general, deeply nutritive for supporting healthy skin
Cranesbill (Geranium) Root*:High in tannins- a treatment for wrinkles and infection, astringent- reduce pores
Burdock Root*: Detoxifying acne treatment and age spot remover. Recent studies have shown that Burdock has one of the strongest actions of causing the skin to consume it's own extra melanin that it previously produced. Active anti-oxidants: Arcigen, Chlorogenic acid, Lactone, Taraxosterols, Polyacetylenes, Flavonoids. I also recommend burdock tea or capsules for acne treatment.
Ginger* - an herb used in Ayurvedic medicine that controls the production of melanin and it's action is proven scientifically
Chaga Mushroom*- Chaga is becoming all the rage and chaga skin care is soaring. Used in Russia by dermatologists and aestheticians in topical preparations to fight skin infections, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, premature aging, sun damage, spider veins, broken capillaries, scars, cellulite, and stretch marks.
Orange Peel*:Components of citrus oils are not only anti-bacterial, but are very unique in free-radical scavengers and have proven to kill cancer cells in scientific studies and citrus peel has some of the most ardent anti-bacterial and anti-aging components that science is still trying to understand.
