Pomegranate has been used as a natural remedy for over 3000 years but now it’s taking the beauty industry by storm. Why? Rich in conjugated fatty acids and antioxidants including flavonoids, it’s been proven that topical application of pomegranate in extract as well as oil form offer amazing skincare benefits regardless of skin type, condition or age. Pomegranate seed oil stimulates the cells found in the outer layer of the skin called Keratinocytes. The antioxidants found in pomegranate combined with phytonutrients, minerals, fatty acids and vitamins work in synergy to plump the skin and promote collagen production.
Chances are you’ve heard of retinol; As a derivative of Vitamin A, retinol has been praised for reducing fine lines and increasing collagen production. But you may not know that there’s a gentler, natural alternative to retinol: Bakuchiol, a plant extract with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
“Studies have shown that bakuchiol helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles, helps with pigmentation, elasticity and firmness,” New York-based dermatologist Debra Jaliman, an American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Spokesperson, told Newsweek. “It stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis. Prolonged use has shown to decrease roughness and dryness.” It’s also versatile—Jaliman recommends bakuchiol to clients with all skin types.

As a natural moisturizer and one that actually mirrors the molecular structure of human sebum, jojoba oil is ideal for use on the face. Here’s why, soaps and skin cleansers used daily in skin care routines actually strip your skin of the natural sebum produced by your sebaceous glands in the skin. Sebum is designed to lubricate the skin while providing protection from dryness.
Each time you wash your face, you’re essentially robbing your skin of a protective layer of sebum. But environmental factors help dry your skin too, including dry air in the winter months and air conditioning during the hot summer. Even when you shower, the water dries out your skin, and your skin glands simply can’t keep up replacing the moisture it loses.
One of the key reasons that jojoba oil helps facial skin is that it doesn’t clog the skin’s pores. And the oil is rich in iodine, which is shown to tackle harmful bacteria growth on the skin’s surface.
It’s also important to remember that jojoba oil is rich in antioxidants, which take on free radials – the enemies of skin that cause fine lines and wrinkles. Jojoba oil acts to protect the skin from the aging process, while minimizing the effects of aging that include loss of skin elasticity.
Let us introduce you to the next biggest thing in natural skincare! Baobab oil benefits aren’t as widely known as, say, jojoba or maracuja, but they are definitely just as sweet. Baobab oil comes from the baobab tree which blooms once a year, often at night, and its native to Australia, Africa, and Madagascar. The spidery, root-like arms of the tree have dubbed it the “upside down tree,” growing close to 100 feet and living for more than 1,000 years. Yes, this oil has a story to tell — one of beauty and nutrients that your hair and skin can benefit from. The oil is slightly more expensive than vegetable oils, but the price is well worth it. As more and more beauty companies begin to introduce baobab oil into their products, it has easily become a rival of argan oil.
According to the Organic Authority, baobob oil improves the elasticity of skin while reversing and healing damaged skin. Since the oil from the upside down tree is rich in vitamins A, D, E, and F, it’s amazing for restoring your complexion and combating early signs of aging. It’s excellent for all skin types because the oil is so easily absorbed into the skin without clogging pores or providing a greasy residue, leaving your skin smooth and touchable.
Sources at the Huffington Post claim that baobab has one of the highest levels of antioxidants of any fruit in the world while being a substantial source of vitamin C. Antioxidants are important for hair and skin health; they protect our skin from looking old and dull while eliminating harmful toxins that get in the way of our skin’s natural ability to defend.
The optimal functioning of our skin depends on intercellular communication, which is altered with age. Orchid Stem Cells stimulate adipose tissue that produce secretome. Secretome is full of growth factors for the fibroblasts to increase their production of elastin and collagen. Orchid Stem Cells are from the Calanthe Discolor Plant, an orchid native to Japan, China and Korea. Several in vitro tests confirmed that cellular communication among Orchid Stem Cells, skin stem cells and fibroblasts resulted in an increase in the production of collagen and elastin.
With age, the levator muscle of this eyelid weakens and the eye appears to be more closed, this makes us look tired and aged. Orchid Stem Cells provide an elevating lifting effect on the upper eyelid and around the eye that rejuvenates the eye area. This boosting effect of collagen and elastin synthesis improved firmness, elasticity and glow.
