We’ve been working very hard to produce a therapeutic natural oil for the skin for some time now, and, at last we’re delighted to announce that it’s about to become available! Pure–Blend Therapeutic Body Oil is the latest exciting product from Elena’s Nature Collection. Focusing on the therapeutic side of skincare for healthy skin, this product is ideal for all ages, all skin types and all budgets. It is full of essential therapeutic ingredients to benefit and maintain healthy skin, whether you are looking for a product to help maintain the skin at its best, or to help reduce wrinkles or stretch marks. The following is just a selection of the very special ingredients used in this wonderful and completely natural oil: Vitamin E Using Vitamin E in skin care is thought to have multiple benefits to your skin. It is a potent antioxidant that is thought to fight off free radicals that cause the signs of aging. Some examples of free radicals are smoke, pollutants and excess sun. Rosehip Oil Rose hip oil is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that are essential for skin health. Essential fatty acids help to regenerate skin cells and to repair damaged skin tissue. It is these essential fatty acids in rose hip oil that help improve the appearance of sun damaged skin and help to improve the appearance of burns, scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. It is rich in a natural source of vitamin A or Retinyl palmitate which encourages your skin cells to turn over faster, bringing new fresh skin cells to the surface. Vitamin A also helps the skin rebuild tissues. Calendula Infused Oil Calendula (Calendula officinalis), is a great herb and has perhaps the longest history of use of any in skin care products. Much of the healing properties of calendula are because of its high levels of carotenoids (vitamin A like compounds). Because these compounds are oil soluble, an infused oil is ideal. It helps to plump the skin and keep it soft. It can help with skin regeneration and various inflammatory conditions. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Coconut oil is able to penetrate into skin and hair, nourishing and protecting it from aging effects. It is regarded as one of the best natural ingredient available for our skin. Coconut oil has an anti-oxidant effect which helps slow cellular ageing. Available from end of March 2014, £6.25 for 50mls.
