Organicals Fresh & Firm (Cleansing & Toning Complex)
Organicals Fresh & Firm (Cleansing & Toning Complex) is an exclusive blend of aqueous extracts of various botanicals chosen for their cleansing and/or toning properties.
- Gotu Kola Extract: Healthy, Firm Skin. Gotu kola extract comes from the gotu kola plant, an herb that has a long history of use in India’s Ayurvedic medicine, and grows native to India, as well as China, Africa, Sri Lanka, Australia and even certain parts of the United States. Gotu Kola is best known for promoting Healthy Skin and being a mild diuretic, lends its firming action to this blend.
- Geranium Extract: Anti-Inflammatory, Astringent. This well-known antioxidant also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent all-around inclusion. Extract of geranium is a powerful astringent, and, unlike tannic acid in its action, does not cause a dryness of the surfaces to which it is applied, but produces its toning influence upon them with the continuance of their natural moisture.
- African Violet Extract: Rejuvenating, Antibacterial. The Mbololo Forest in the Taita Hills in Kenya’s Coast Province is what is known as a cloud mountain forest, its steep terrain bathed in cloud. Its moist habitat is home to a great many plant species. Among them, growing on cliffs and large rocks under the forest canopy, is a wild population of the Saintpaulia Ionantha species of African violets. This treasure is often used to make a “rejuvenating Definition Description elixir” which is thought to have magical properties. Studies in the African Journal of Biomedical Research show it to have antioxidant, antibacterial, cleansing and toning properties.
- German Chamomile Extract: Firming, Protective. Among chamomiles there is wide variation in the levels of active components. Phytomedical research has established the primacy of one variety, distinguished by the exceptionally high content of the active components: Matricaria chamomilla, commonly known as German Chamomile. Levomenol, azulenes and flavonoids from this exotic firm and protect.
- Lemon Verbena Extract: Clarifies, Revitalizes. This vibrant, refreshing botanical has well known antibacterial, antisceptic and astringent properties. It is widely used in top shelf cosmetics for its clarifying and revitalizing properties.
