cucumber // chamomile // calendula
A sweet, earthy-floral blend of botanical, natural plant extracts high in anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, with skin calming properties. Combined to help tone, heal, soothe the skin and calm irritations.
Cucumber Extract: Cooling, softening and soothing. Cucumber is rich in vitamins, polyphenols, polysaccharides, minerals and other nutrients, known for their astringent properties but also helps in hydrating, toning, and tightening. Cucumber is full of water content that can relieve puffy skin, soothe irritations and reduce swelling.
Calendula Extract: Master healer, anti-inflammatory, astringent. Because of calendula's anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, it aids in the healing of sunburns, rashes, insect bites and other mild skin irritations. The herb stimulates the production of collagen at wound sites and minimizes scarring.
Calendula is an annual flower (marigold) native to the northern Mediterranean countries. Its name refers to its tendency to bloom with the calendar, usually once a month or with every new moon. Historically, the term “marigold” refers to the Virgin Mary, and the flowers are used to honor her during Catholic events. The Egyptians considered them to have rejuvenating properties. The flowers were used to adorn statues of gods, as well as a colorant in food, fabrics, and cosmetics. As recently as 70 years ago, American physicians used calendula to treat fevers, cuts, scrapes, bruises, and burns, as well as minor infections of the skin.
Directions for use: After cleansing, spray a moderate amount of toner directly onto the skin and with your hands, gently massage in over the face in upward motions. Allow to air dry, and follow with a moisturizer, or nothing at all, as desired. Apply throughout the day for an instant refresh.
