Birch Leaf Extract
Jojoba Seed Oil
The Jojoba plant is an evergreen shrub that bears olive-shaped fruits and grows wild in arid environments such as, Israel, Arizona Mexico and South America.
Jojoba Seed Oil is derived from the seeds (beans) within the fruits.
This oil is an oily liquid wax that is very similar to the protective layer of the human skin. At the same time, it supports the barrier function of the skin. Thereby it protects the skin against water loss without leaving it greasy. It is very skin friendly, easily absorbed and is therefore a suitable care product for all skin types, especially for dry skin. It is also very suitable as a base oil in products because it’s very stable and doesn’t oxidise (go rancid) easily.
Between May and June, the birch pushes out strong growth, full of ingredients that also give new impetus and energy to our own systems.
Associated with the beautiful feathered Norse goddess Freya, the birch was ordained a sacred tree and enjoyed a virtuous reputation in the popular belief of German and Slavonic people. Bringing a birch tree to the village, as a symbol of the awakening spring, is a custom that has survived to this day – the birch maypole can be found in many village or town squares in Germany in the spring. Bachelors would traditionally present a decorated birch tree to their beloved – perhaps a symbol to keep her healthy and beautiful.
Rejuvenate the body
Birch sap was known as a beauty and strengthening remedy to the Germans and was used against fever and stomach ailments, while a decoction of birch leaves was used to treat skin diseases and wounds. In Northern Europe and Russia, birch was known to help in weight reduction – valuable substances such vitamin C activate natural fat burning.
How to use
During first four weeks, massage into the affected skin areas twice a day. For a lasting effect, continue to use once a day. Apply in a circular massage action over thighs, hips and bottom. Enhance circulation with a brush massage or a hot/cold change shower using Birch Body Scrub.
