This aromatic balm is quintessential holistic beauty at its best; designed to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance and serve as a gentle reminder to stop and breathe, creating a sense of beauty and wellbeing.
Ceramide started its life as a treatment for those suffering from eczema and extremely dry skin. Clients with very compromised skin often complain that their moisturising regimen is not enough, so it was important for me to create a healing treatment that also provided a true sensory experience – a welcome addition to a skincare routine that indulges the skin and soothes the senses in one luxurious, fragrant step.
The pale blue colour comes from Chamazulene, which is blended with exotic botanicals and nourishing lipids to calm and appease even the most aggravated skin. Unlike other moisturisers, it won’t immediately absorb; allowing it to support epidermal recovery with much-needed moisturisation.
Use alone, or for very dry skin conditions mix with Bio Lipid Complex and leave on overnight as a healing mask.
PURE INTENTION – BREATHE
The gorgeous fragrance that envelopes this balm takes you on a journey into the heart of blue flower essences. Their calmative, cooling action also eases systemic issues that are often the deep-rooted cause of problematic skin such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, and emotional heat – reminding us to breathe deeply and connect with our emotions.
Ceramide Blend: Lipids – the key component of the cell membranes found in the top layer of skin – deplete with age. This blend of skin-identical ceramides is fully compatible with our cells and has a protective role on the skin; supporting cellular rejuvenation and reinforcing the natural barrier function.
Chamazulene Blend: Blue Cypress, Cape Chamomile, German Chamomile, Blue Tansy, and Yarrow have been harnessed in a gorgeous blend for their Chamazulene potency – a chemical compound that gives these ingredients their valuable anti-inflammatory and skin rejuvenation benefits.
Marula Oil: Rich in essential fatty acids Omega 9 and Omega 6 to deeply hydrate and reduce redness whilst nourishing, healing, moisturising, and improving skin’s elasticity.
Cupuaçu Butter: A rich, creamy butter high in essential fatty acids and phytosterols; offering superior moisturisation that softens and smooths the skin to enhance its elasticity.
