ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF EXTRACT(Aloe Vera Leaf Extract) Aloe Vera is a succulent plant, with leaves that have a high capacity for storing water. The juice extracted from the leaf soothes the skin and helps support healthy moisture balance.
ALTHAEA OFFICINALIS ROOT EXTRACT (Marsh mallow extract) Marsh mallow extract hydrates and supports the moisture balance within the skin. It is rich in mucilage, a humectant plant carbohydrate that is able to attract and hold water. Mucilaginous plants like marsh mallow are non-oily emollients with soothing and softening properties. Marsh mallow softens dry skin, promoting flexibility and resilience.
CARTHAMUS TINCTORIUS (Safflower) OLEOSOMES Safflower oleosomes are micron-sized spheres of emollient (moisturising) plant oils and vitamin E, surrounded by a phospholipid membrane(thin cell membrane) and protein coat. Found naturally in all oil bearing plant seeds, oleosomes serve as the natural storehouse of energy used by the seed during germination.
The safflower seed is gently deconstructed through a natural separation and purification process that respects the natural energy source harnessed inside the oilseed. Safflower oleosomes allow a unique, continuous moisture delivery system that is all natural. The result is the unveiling of the pearl within the seed allowing for delivery of the Skin Silks contents onto the skin surface over time via gradual release.
