In Fiore - VELOUTE… Multipurpose Balm for Lips and Eyes - 5 ml
Environmental exposure can take its toll on oneís face, appearing especially on the lips and around the eyes. Carrot seed and Calendula help combat this with high levels of carotenoids, which increase skinís resistance to environmental damage like UV-generated free radicals. Carrot seed also stimulates circulation, nourishes, and improves skin tone and elasticity. Black currant fruit oil delivers gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) to plump the skin for a more youthful tone. Antioxidant-rich Marula oil contains oleic acids making it highly moisturizing. Jojoba seed oil, Beeswax, and Shea butter are excellent hydration agents that help strengthen skinís natural moisture barrier. Shea butter also acts as a mild, natural sunscreen.
With age, skinís elasticity begins to break down due to cellular build up of glycated proteins. Glucose wraps itself around collagen and elastin fibers, which rigidify and break over time. Broccoli extract decreases dermal protein gylcation and is an effective natural photoprotectant, anti-carcinogenic agent, and reduces chronicle free radical damage.
Wheat Germ and Olive fruit extracts provide nourishment and act as a delivery system for Coleus Forskohlii and for resveratrol derived from Japanese Bamboo. Coleus Forskohlii helps elevate skinís cellular energetics. Resveratrol is well known for its influence on aging via its effect on Sirtuin proteins and DNA repair processes.
Neroli, queen of flowers, calms and restores the skin while Jasmineís permeating warmth soothes and moisturizes. Saffron, considered by alchemists to be the gold of the plant kingdom, is high in the carotene crocin Ė the source of saffronís treasured hue and itself a potent antioxidant. Pink peppercorn fruit increases bio-availability of all ingredients boosting the formulaís overall efficacy.
Apply generously to lips as needed; use also as a nightly treatment for the lip line. May be applied directly to the outer area of the eyes by itself or as a sealant over VIS CLAIR Firming Eye Complex.
