There are many plant extracts that are good for your skin. Most cosmetic and cosmeceutical products today contain some sort of natural ingredient, mainly obtained from some part of a plant.
In Décaar we have incorporated beneficial extracts obtained from the seeds, fruits, leaves or roots that are gentle on the skin and are very efficient at healing certain skin conditions or slowing ageing signs.
Five plant extracts used in Décaar products
Aloe barbadensis is one of the best aloes that has soothing and antioxidant properties and serves as a hydrating agent for the skin. It provides a refreshing sensation that you can experience when you clean your skin with our Oxygen or Natural Exfoliating scrubs. It is also found in our Pure Cleansing Gel, a gentle cleanser for oily skin.
Stem cells from the Swiss apple Uttwiler Spätlauber, a rare variety of Malus domestica, not only has the potent antioxidant abilities that benefit the skin by limiting the production of damaging free radicals, it also protects it from the effect of UV radiation and delays deterioration of the cells. This efficient wrinkle reductor is one of the components of Décaar’s Oxygen serum. It not only decreases the signs of ageing but it is also suitable for treating skin conditions like eczema.
Bearberry or Arbutin exhibits antioxidant activity and most notably, its effectiveness for brightening an uneven skin tone has been proven by an increasing amount of research. It also improves the appearance of dark spots from unprotected sun exposure or body changes such as those that occur during pregnancy. You can benefit from it in Décaar’s Brightening Mask.
This is a non-fragrant oil expressed from the kernels of argan trees, Argania espinosa. Argan oil contains several beneficial fatty acids for the skin, including oleic, palmitic and linoleic acid. It is a good source of antioxidant vitamin E. It is also a good emollient that we include in Décaar’s Lift Firming Eye Cream.
Green tea or Camellia sinensis extracts applied topically have many benefits for the skin, including anti-ageing properties. Its polyphenols possess potent antioxidant and skin-soothing properties. It can improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin. In Décaar we combine it with other antioxidants and you can benefit from it in our Natural Exfoliation Scrub.
