Some of the most powerful ingredients in our best-selling Dermalogica and Decleor products come straight from natures kitchen, harnessing the power of Mother Nature to keep your skin looking its best. We thought we’d take a look at some of those ingredients, find out what they can do and in which products you can find them:
Witch hazel comes from the flowers of a North American shrub and contains both a natural astringent which cleanses and tones the skin, and anti-inflammatory properties which help to reduce redness. It can be found in Dermalogica’s Skin Purifying Wipes, which are specially formulated for acne-prone skin and can be used throughout the day to refresh the face, get rid of excess oil and prevent breakouts.
Coconut oil has become something of a powerhouse in the world of beauty, fitness and nutrition lately with people putting it in everything from their coffee to their conditioner. It’s a fantastic source of moisture and vitamins and keeps the skin and hair supple and soft. It’s no surprise that Dermalogica has utilised the deep moisturising power of coconut in its Super Rich Repair, a heavyweight cream for dry and dehydrated skin. It’s perfect for very dry or mature skin because it smoothes fine dryness lines and helps restore elasticity.
Evening Primrose Oil
Evening primrose oil is commonly associated with menstrual issues and when taken as a capsule can help with bloating, mood swings and other symptoms. When applied topically it can also be wonderful for the skin, and Decleor have harnessed it’s power within its Mandarine Smoothing Night Balm. It’s 100% natural and improves the skin’s luminosity whilst reducing fine lines and wrinkles and restoring vital moisture.
Zinc is a chemical element which is actually vital to nutrition and good health. It’s known to help to fight against the common cold and is very important for clear skin, helping with cell regeneration and replication. It’s particularly good for controlling acne, which is why it’s found in Dermalogica Breakout Control. This little bottle of clear cream helps to prevent and control acneic breakouts and eliminates bacteria and excess sebum.
Peppermint doesn’t just smell and taste good; it also has soothing and purifying properties which help to prevent the skin from producing too much oil, thus preventing skin congestion and acne. Decleor Fresh Purifying Gel contains peppermint and deeply cleanses the skin, refreshes the face and leaves you feeling super clean.
