I'm rubbing my arms after a couple of hours in the kitchen...and boy do they feel soft! My faithful assistant (Mom) and I just got done making a beautiful batch of my Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream. I've never introduced this product online before, so while my arms are still soft and the cream is still warm, I thought I'd do a little SJSBAFC 101....um...yeah, bad acronym. (Simply Jen Sea Buckthorn Anti-aging Facial Cream 101). Here goes:
Sea Buckthorn Oil is a natural source of vitamin A, Vitamin E and several other tocopherols. It is reputed to be one of the best sources of natural antioxidants due to the high content of Vitamin C. Sea buckthorn oil effectively combats wrinkles, dryness, and other symptoms of dry, aged skin. It can also be used to promote healing of burns, eczema and small cuts or wounds. In addition, the UV-spectrum of the oil shows a moderate absorption in the UV-B range which makes sea buckthorn derived products attractive for sun care cosmetics.
Pomegranate Seed Extract can promote skin regeneration, stimulate self repair mechanisms, improve skin elasticity, and reduce wrinkles. Pomegranate Seed Oil has calming properties and is therefore useful in skin soothing formulas.
Calendula has great anti-inflammatory properties and vulnerary properties, making it excellent for help with stubborn wounds, ulcers, bed sores, varicose veins, bruises, rashes, eczema etc. This oil is great to help with sore, inflamed and itchy skin conditions, also for burns, eczema and diaper rash, as well as sore cracked nipples. It is also used to treat thread and spider veins as well as varicose veins. It has great healing, soothing and softening qualities.
Aloe Vera Juice is anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial, and anti-viral. Aloe vera contains protein, calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamins A, B12 and E, essential fatty acids and is naturally rich in Vitamin C, Amino acids, Enzymes (which are the life-principle in every live, organic atom and molecule of natural raw food, rejuvenate aged tissues and promote healthy skin). Aloe vera juice is said to be one of the finest body cleansers. The benefits of aloe vera are manifold. Aloe vera is used to treat first-degree burns for speedy healing. Aloe vera is used to shrink warts and lessen the painful effects of shingles. The symptoms of psoriasis can be reduced with aloe vera.
