About Skin Elixir
Skin Elixir is dedicated to creating hand-made, luxurious, non-toxic, planet friendly beauty products that nourish the skin you’re in and bring bliss to the senses. 100% natural, organic, plant-based and vegan with no added water so no emulsifiers or potentially hormone damaging preservatives.
What’s most important to me about running Skin Elixir is ensuring the integrity of the final products. To follow is a description of our Organic Frankincense & May chang Moisturiser.
The precious, organic essential oils of Frankincense and May Chang are gently balanced in a base of certified organic Shea butter, organic sweet almond oil and unrefined virgin Black Seed Oil. This creates a unique, rich, divinely-fragranced and creamy balm, that is packed full of nutrients and naturally-occurring vitamin E.
Boswellia carteri (Frankincense) oil is known as the ‘king’ of oils. Historically, it was used by the Babylonians, Assyrians and Egyptians in various ceremonies and as a resin for salves and balms. It is known for its ability to calm emotions and to increase clarity of thinking. It is also recognized to increase circulation which can be effective in the promotion of healthy, dewy, glowing skin and complexion. The healthy cell-regeneration promoted by Frankincense can also help with the appearance of scars, spots, acne, eczema, psoriasis and with the overall balancing of skin tone. It can help restore elasticity to the skin whilst minimising wrinkles.
Litsea Cubeba (May Chang) has an intense citrusy scent, known to possess anti-fungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Scientific studies have demonstrated Litsea Cubeba is effective at controlling arrhythmia, a common sign of anxiety and stress – and so has a natural uplifting effect on the mind. Massaging Litsea cubeba into the skin increases blood-circulation which in turn enhances skin-tone. It is known to control the secretion of sebum, making it excellent for skin that flares-up or that has an over-production of oil. In Ayurveyda, it is revered for its ability to pacify excess kapha energy and aggravate deficit vata and pitta doshas.
We never add water to our formulas so as an undiluted elixir you need only use this cream sparingly.
We also run a weekly blog when we ask an individual how do you ‘nourish the skin you’re in’. You can be read here following the link here: www.skinelixir.co.uk/blog
