Geranium

Geranium is useful for its astringent and antiseptic properties and for its action in balancing the skin’s production of sebum. This makes it useful for skins that are excessively dry or oily, or for dry skins with oily patches. It also has a stimulating effect on the lymphatic system and is therefore often used in the treatment of cellulite and water retention. Geranium also acts as an antidepressant and often described as having a sedative effect on the mind and body.

Green Tea Leaf Extract

Green Tea Leaf Extract

Green tea is well-known for its regenerating properties as it contains tannins, which have skin firming properties and it has free radical scavenging properties. As UV falls onto the skin it can react with chemicals within the skin to form highly reactive agents called free radicals. These can cause cellular damage and in the long term can lead to wrinkles and abnormal cell development. This material neutralises these reactive species, helping to prevent one of the causes of premature ageing.
