Ingredients of our product
Acacia Gum: Acacia gum is obtained from the trunk and leaves of various African acacia species. It is used in cosmetics because of its film-forming properties. Another effect: When acacia gum is mixed with water, it forms a kind of gel that makes the texture of the products smoother.
Rhizobian Gum: Has film-forming properties.
Did you know? Rhizobian gum is formed from microorganisms in the root zone of desert plants. The plants use the rubber-like gel to enclose their roots and protect themselves from drying out so that they can survive without water for a longer period of time. In Senegal in Africa, the inhabitants have been using rhizobian gum for ages to treat skin wounds and for skin care. The strengthening gel not only protects the roots of desert plants from moisture loss, but also human skin.
Sacha Inchi Seed Oil: Rich in essential fatty acids, it strengthens and rebuilds the skin's natural protective barrier.
Fun Fact: The Inca nut only received greater attention from the mid-1990s onwards, and nowadays it spans the entire world. Originally, it was a traditional food and remedy in the Peruvian Andes. The Sacha Inchi celebrated its triumphal march when data on the unusual amino acid and fatty acid patterns of the seeds became known for the first time and, at the same time, the cultivation of the Inca plant began to be promoted for political reasons: this was seen as a way of pushing back coca cultivation in the Peruvian regions of Latin America. Today, more than 120,000 litres of Sacha Inchi oil are produced worldwide every year.
Jojoba Esters: Jojoba oil esters have a pleasantly light texture that helps the skin to quickly absorb the extremely nourishing and moisturising ingredients.
Organic Hemp Seed Oil: Counts among the absolute "super oils"! Filled with essential nutrients, hemp seed oil is the most natural and richest source of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), known for their excellent emollient and moisturising properties.
Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Extract: Contains vitamins A, E, C and B12. Is extremely moisturising and nourishes the skin.
Fun Fact: Aloe Vera is one of the oldest plants known for its "healing properties". Even the pharaohs raved about it as the "plant of immortality" and no less than Nefertiti and Cleopatra are said to have implemented aloe vera as an elementary component in their cosmetic routine.
Squalane: Is a skin-own, natural moisture preserver and is even one of the main components of the skin's lipid film. It provides a pleasantly soft skin feeling and is particularly well absorbed by the skin.
Organic Olive Fruit Oil: Effective antioxidant and moisturiser for the skin.
Beeswax: Provides a natural protective barrier thanks to its highly antioxidant properties and also contains a lot of vitamin A.
Organic Jojoba Oil: Contains vitamins E, A and B6, which help reduce oxidative stress. It also helps to increase the moisture content of the skin without being greasy. It is therefore good for dry, stressed skin and hair.
Did you know? Jojoba oil has been used for centuries by the Apaches as a means of strengthening the skin. Since jojoba oil is very similar to the sebum of the skin, it is ideal for skin care products and for regenerating damaged and dry hair.
Sodium Hyaluronate: The salt of hyaluronic acid.
Did you know? Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body. It is known for its function as an effective water reservoir and a natural component of connective tissue. Sodium hyaluronate easily penetrates the skin and binds a large amount of water - one gram of hyaluronic acid can bind up to 6 litres of water! This property is used to maintain the water content of a cosmetic in its packaging and on the skin.
Glycerin: Is a natural moisturiser. Glycerin is a natural component of the skin's so-called Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF), which means that glycerin helps to transport moisture into the skin and bind it there.
Propanediol: Binds moisture and thus enhances the effect of preservatives.
Cetyl Alcohol: So-called fatty alcohol, often serves as a base for creams and ointments, as it is nourishing to the skin and has a refatting effect.
Xanthan gum: Xanthan gum is a natural gel former and is responsible for the pleasantly soft consistency of our HERBLIZ Eye Lifting Serum. Due to these properties, xanthan gum is also used in the food industry for organic products.
Sodium Levulinate: Improves the appearance of dry and/or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness.
We at HERBLIZ always pay attention to certified and naturally gentle preservatives, which give our products a long shelf life and at the same time protect them from degenerative processes!
