We may absorb up to a third of the substances that we put on our skin. It is no wonder then that we have an interest in the ingredients, preservatives and perfumes used in creams and lotions. With this in mind our producers have been formulating creams of exceptional quality.
We have developed two broad ranges of creams; firstly there are those creams with a more cosmetic focus. Within this range, they have concentrated on getting the right consistency and aroma to make products that are lovely to use as well as being effective. Moreover, these creams are in effect aromatherapy treatments as they all contain aromatic waters and essential oils that provide mental and emotional benefits in addition to the effects on the skin. They have catered for all skin types in the cosmetic range, and to cover all areas of the body. Secondly there is a range of more medicinally orientated creams and lotions, which are slightly heavier due to the higher oil content. There is however a large overlap between the two groupings, with all the creams having therapeutic properties in addition to being lovely to use.
All the creams and lotions are made from very high quality, mostly organic aromatic waters, vegetable oils, macerated oils, essential oils and herbal percolates decoctions and infusions. Almost all of the active ingredients are made by our producers, including all of the aromatic waters and herbal decoctions and infusion, all of the macerated oils and some of the essential oils. Where they have had to source ingredients, they have worked hard to find the right quality, often rejecting many samples on the way. In standard creams and lotions, the greatest ingredient is usually ‘aqua’ or water. However, they never add water to the creams - they either use an aromatic water, or herbal infusion/decoction or both. And they have spared no expense when it comes to using the right vegetable oils for our creams; rose hip oil, shea butter, evening primrose oil and avocado oil are all expensive oils that tend to be added in tiny amounts, if they are used at all. They have ensured that these ingredients are added at adequate levels.
