"Luxurious product that’s simple to apply and produces visible improvements quickly"
So its been a while in the making but I'm now ready to launch a brand new product to complement the Skin Elixir nourish the skin you're in small range of handmade luxurious organic fuss free skincare, the Intensive Night Cream.
I wanted to create a product that would address pre menopausal, menopausal and post menopausal skin, something that would soothe, calm and bring a glow to skin overnight. There's already the much loved Magnificent Night Oil but for those wanting a cold cream with a dreamy warming scent then the Intensive Night Cream is a beautiful alternative to the oil and is also packed with plant potent retinol alternative, Bakuchiol and it can of course be worn layered with the Magnificent Night Oil. It is much smoother, lighter and creamier than my multi award winning hero product Organic Frankincense & May Chang Moisturiser.
This elixir has been created to address perimenopausal skin and beyond. The Skin Elixir Intensive Night Cream is a cold cream with a beautiful silk-like texture and subtle bright cucumber scent. Immediately cooling, this is a must for those wanting a super absorbent, nutrient dense overnight skin treat, which delivers soft glowing skin by morning.
Powered by 2% Bakuchiol, a much gentler yet just as potent natural, tolerable alternative to Retinol, this overnight skin treat works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and scarring, redness and dryness. Apply to face, neck, and chest at night to clean, dry skin to improve elasticity, pigmentation and photo damage, and lighten the under eyes.
As we age skin changes and what it seeks most is both deep penetrating moisturisation and support at a cellular level, nourishment and hydration without irritation. The key to nurturing and nourishing menopausal skin is hydration. Since oil glands aren’t producing as much oil, skin will become drier and lacklustre, skin can lose collagen and elastin and coupled with a reduction in estrogen, can become thinner, drier and wrinkles more visible and skin saggier.
Over the next couple of blog posts I will be taking a deep dive into the organic and wild crafted ingredients. Here's a look at three:
Cucumber Seed Oil
Packed with phytosterols (proteins proven to increase collagen production), cucumber helps increase the skin’s production of collagen - the protein that gives skin it scaffolding and structure - and elastin (an extracellular matrix protein that gives skin its resilience and elasticity). This results in fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Lightweight and easily absorbed, with a divinely comforting scent it has an instant cooling effect on the skin making it perfect for applying to hot, red, flushing skin. It is a superb anti-inflammatory and helps improve moisture retention. With an abundance of oleic acid cucumber seed oil is a powerful antioxidant helping to slow down the aging process and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The same acid is known to strengthen the integrity of skin cells helping to heal a variety of skin conditions; psoriasis, rosacea and acne as well as eczema.

Moringa Oil is a rich source of vitamins, powerful antioxidants and minerals that meets all your skin needs. It is remarkably high in vitamin c, around 7 times more than oranges. Vitamin C is needed in order for our skin to naturally produce collagen. Jam-packed with nutrients that have been shown to slow down the aging process, combat stress, create healthier skin, support bone health, lower cholesterol levels and help with vision (to name a few of the benefits). Moringa Oil helps in cleansing, nourishing, and nurturing your skin naturally and promotes a youthful skin tone. In a three month study collagen formation increased along with skin elasticity.
