Travels to Greece
I simply love to travel!
As mention in my bio i try my best to seek local products from places i visit and incorporate them in my creams and soaps.
In cosmetic products, when combined with plant oils, mastic has hydrating, soothing, cooling and anti-aging action.
In organic skin care, mastic is gaining more and more ground. It is used as a main ingredient in soaps, organic beauty creams because its properties restore collagen and elasticity of the skin thus they slow down the process of aging.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil
Although its mainly processed in Morocco this oil contains very high amounts of Vitamin E - they say 150% more than Argan oil. It is high in Vitamin K which has the ability to brighten your skin and help with dark spots. High amino acids simulate the skin and help produce collagan and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Local Greek Camomile Essential Oil
sought after as an anti-inflammatory and helps regenerate cells and tighten pores. Sounds like thats going in my next nighttime cream!
I think i will infuse some cold pressed Greek olive oil with this
St John's Wort
Again, i'll infuse this in oil to extract the healing benefits for our skin
