Hand & Body lotions are essential during this time of the year in most of South Africa (except for the lucky guys in the Western Cape). Therefore, if you struggle with dry, thirsty skin then using a lotion is the best way to repair and restore dry and damaged skin, ensuring that it looks younger and feels softer.
Eden Perfumes have developed an excellent range of quality lotions, and we’ve added special ingredients that provide various benefits for your skin. Remember to match your lotions with the same fragrance perfume for a longer lasting scent. Dry skins absorb the perfume and will fade quickly, however, moisturised skin holds the scent and it will last the whole day.
Here we discuss the ingredients and their benefits in detail:
Lanolin can soften and relieve dry, painful, and cracked skin by creating a layer over the skin, which locks in existing moisture as well as absorbing additional moisture from surrounding air. Dry skin, for example, is caused by the lack of lipids in the skin, which allows moisture to escape, Lanolin fills in those gaps, preventing water (moisture) escaping from the skin.
- Aloe Ferox:
Aloe Ferox was first discovered in 2,200BC, the people of this era were already aware of its cleansing effect.
The first known written reports of Aloe Ferox dates to 5,000 years ago in ancient Egypt, where it was considered as a sacred plant, the ‘blood’ of which held the secrets to beauty, health and immortality. Even Cleopatra, with her exotic beauty, greatly valued the nourishing juices of Aloe Ferox and used it as part of her daily skin and beauty routine.
Fast forward to the 21st Century,
Aloe Ferox is one of South Africa’s best-known plants with a long history of
medicinal uses. It provides many
benefits in the beauty and physical health department, containing antioxidant
vitamins, A, C & E, plus vitamin B12, folic acid and choline. Aloe gel also contains two hormones: Auxin
and Gibberellins, that provide healing and anti-inflammatory properties and act
as a growth hormone stimulating the growth of new cells. Aloe can help improve the skin’s natural
firmness and keep the skin hydrated, moisturizing the skin without giving it a
greasy feel, so it`s perfect for anyone with an oily skin complexion.
- Shea Butter:
Shea butter is the oil extracted from the nut of the African Shea Tree and its origins date as far back as Cleopatra’s Egypt, explaining another one of her secrets to her radiant skin. For example, Shea Butter was used for its healing properties throughout the West African wooded Savannah.
Shea Butter is rich in oils, which for example explains why it is such an excellent emollient and skin moisturizing agent. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants that can help reduce inflammatory skin diseases. It contains vitamins A and E, which keeps the skin in optimal health. Vitamin E also soothes dry skin and improves the skin’s elasticity, making this butter a good anti-ageing agent.
