Sunsplash Face & Body Splash
Conjuring up images of exhilarating bracing waves, the new Sunsplash Face & Body Splash is an invigorating, fragrant, and refreshing addition to your beauty routine.
This light, dusty, rose-colored water moisturizes, refreshes, and tones your face and body without being sticky. It exudes a citric perfume with a floral middle note, inspired by the sensory richness of a Garden of Eden on a tropical island. The delicately colorful notes of citrus fruit, hibiscus, and jasmine assemble like precious pearls of dew hidden inside the folds of leaves.
The Sunsplash Face & Body Splash complements the virtues of other beauty care products in the LIGNE ST BARTH range.
Discovered in the West Indies at the end of the 18th century, the pomelo (Citrus paradisi) or forbidden fruit as it is known, is frequently referred to as a grapefruit. The fruit of the grapefruit tree (Citrus maxima) is a citrus fruit that is extremely similar, albeit larger than the pomelo. The latter is derived from the natural crossing of the grapefruit and orange trees (Citrus maxima x Citrus sinensis), which explains its botanic name, Citrus x paradisi.
The fragrant water is obtained by extracting the essential oil and water from the peel and pulp of grapefruit through a process of slow and cool evaporation of its water. The grapefruit water contains water-soluble nutrients (vitamins, mineral salts, trace elements), as well as traces of aroma found in the fragrant water. Moisturising, toning, and refreshing with a zesty tangy fragrance, grapefruit water revitalises skin and gives tired complexions a boost. Wonderfully soothing, this water purifies the skin and tightens pores.
Belonging to the genus aloe, aloe vera or Barbados Aloe (Aloe barbadensis) has been known since antiquity and was used by the Egyptians for its medicinal and cosmetic qualities over 3,000 years ago. Cleopatra is reputed to have added aloe vera juice to her bath as part of her beauty routine. This plant became popular in traditional medicine in many hot regions of the world, including the Caribbean, from the 17th century onwards, where it remains widely cultivated today.
The sharp leaves of this tenacious-looking oily plant are carefully cut off to allow the aloe vera juice, or gel, to be extracted.
It is extremely rich in vitamins (A, B, C, E, etc.), trace elements and minerals (such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, iron, etc.), enzymes (including bradykinin with anti-inflammatory, skin-healing properties), sugars (mannose 6-phosphate and acemannan with moisturising and emolient qualities), glycoproteins and amino acids (phenylalanine, leucine, lysine, etc., which are involved in skin regeneration), polysaccharides, etc.. Aloe vera is a cocktail of active agents, some of which are yet to be identified.
Allantoin is naturally occurring in various plants such as the roots of the common comfrey or wheatgerm. Traditionally exploited for its skin-healing and repairing properties in medicine, it is used to stimulate renewal of the epidermis and regulate the inflammatory process. Its softening and soothing qualities work particular wonders on sensitive and irritated skin. This regenerative agent moisturises the skin (by improving the skins capacity to retain moisture) and has a keratolytic effect, leaving skin soft and radiant.
At the heart of the formula, allantoin reinforces the soothing, softening and skin regenerating properties of the aloe vera.
The Caribbean seawater is collected off the coast of the island of St Barthélémy in calm, clear conditions, before being purified and filtered. This natural and rare element boasts a unique composition a true exotic treasure. Rich in minerals, it provides a wonderful feeling of well-being. Similar to thermal spring water, it is a natural skin moisturiser that restores pH balance and leaves skin feeling soothed, supple and radiant. Reputed for its astringent and re-mineralising qualities, Caribbean seawater tones all skin types, including extremely sensitive skin.
It can be used on its own on younger skin, or applied as a primer to ensure that your skin gets the maximum benefit of other skincare products.
After showering, apply a generous amount all over your body and rub firmly to invigorate your skin and swathe your body in a delicate fragrance wonderfully refreshing after the beach, or on the back of your neck after a tough meeting. This light splash evaporates immediately, leaving behind a delicate floral fragrance with a citrus tang
