Ligne St. Barth - Firming Body Gel With Ivy - 6.8 oz
The bladderwrack contained within the formula is combined with ivy to reinforce its skin-firming and smoothing properties. Extracts of bladderwrack, meadowsweet and ivy are produced on the island of Saint Barthélemy, thanks to the expertise of the LIGNE ST BARTH laboratory.
Climbing ivy (Hedera helix L.) is an arborescent liana found in temperate Eurasian zones of the northern hemisphere, probably descending from a tropical ancestor. In the woods, animals are believed to roll themselves in trampled ivy to try and heal their wounds and calm pain. Obtained from dried ivy leaves using a cold process, the ivy extract contains flavonoids and saponins (hederagenin glycosides, hederacoside C, alpha- and betahederin), lending to its vasoconstrictive, toxin-eliminating and flushing properties. Renowned for its virtues that drain and stimulate the lymphatic system, ivy is used as a slimming and firming ingredient, as well as for the soothing of irritated skin.
Morning and evening, apply a thin layer of Firming Body Gel with Ivy Extract to areas that are prone to cellulite (such as the chest, stomach, thighs, buttocks and hips). Its firm, translucent consistency soaks in instantly and pleasantly, releasing a fresh sensation of well-being.
Run your hands along your legs, massaging them firmly from the bottom to the top using generous, embracing motions.
