Each formula has at its core a key ingredient, as illustrated on the packaging:
Rosehip is at the core of our facial range due to its potent rejuvenative and anti-ageing properties. These benefits are due to a combination of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids, as well as high levels of vitamins A, C and E. Vitamin A in particular in indicated for ageing skin due its ability to convert to the highly prized retinol. Rosehip helps promote a richly moisturised complexion with increased skin elasticity and even skin tone.
Lavender is a key ingredient in the body range due to its long history of use as a relaxant, both mind and muscle. It was also chosen for its ability to promote new cell growth, encourage healing of burns and wounds, and soothe eczema and psoriasis.
Jojoba is essential to our lip products because of its ability to provide long-lasting moisture. Jojoba is also excellent for soothing inflamed skin due to a combination of vitamins A, D and E, which provide both anti-inflammatory and healing benefits.
Calendula is a key ingredient in the baby products due to its potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits. This assists in reducing skin inflammation, soothing irritations and promoting wound healing.
Additional ingredients used in the Clémence Organics range:
Bearberry extract is obtained from the bearberry plant (Arctostaphylosus uva-ursi) commonly wild-harvested throughout Asia, Europe and North America. It is used for its ability to brighten and lighten the complexion by reducing melanin production.
Beeswax is a naturally occurring wax that has anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and protective benefits. It is added to skincare products to help create a barrier, holding moisture in the skin, whilst still allowing it to breathe. It is particularly suited to dry skin and skin issues involving inflammation and irritation such as eczema.
Camellia oil, also known as tsubaki oil in Japan, is obtained from the seed of the camellia plant. It is rich in oleic acid and vitamins A, B, D and E as well as omega 3, 6 and 9. It is probably best known for its use amongst Geisha who would use this ancient oil to wipe away their heavy make-up and keep their skin in prime condition.
Chamomile essential oil
