French Green clay and Immortelle for skin detoxing
Our French green clay (Argile Verte sundried for optimum results, preservative free and no irradiation ) has enormous absorbent abilities due to the constitution of its micro molecules , and the remarcable ability to draw out impurities that may be lurking under the skin layers.
It literally "drinks" oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your skin.
Combined with the power of our helichrysum Italicum floral water act as a turbo detox radical toning with a further added few drops of essential immortelle oil, its toning action will stimulates your skin by bringing fresh blood to damaged skin cells, revitalizing the complexion, and tightening pores.
ARGILE VERTE : Rebuild any weak derma immune system...
Green clay helps to keep your skin fresh and toned, helping to clear skin problems while working well at relieving skin congestion, spots, inflammation, fatty deposits and dry skin. Mined from bedrock quarries in France, it is completely natural, unscented and fragrance free.
Note that If your skin is in need of serious TLC, it is not unusual that after applying your first clay mask your skin will feel warm & may redden. This is good news as it shows the clay is doing its job drawing impurities from the skin. Any 'de-tox symptoms' will diminish & disappear completely the more you use the mask.

ABOUT HELICHRYSUM SKIN CARE
DETAILED DESCRIPTION & MEDICAL EXPERIMENTS
Research of the essential oil extracted
by hydro distillation or by means of an extraction fluid
preferably at or close to the supercritical state from
the plant material of the flower tops of a plant, known
as the flower summit, and belonging to the Asterasceae
(daisy) family: Helichrysum Italicum variety serotinum
has been conducted in order to comprehend the beneficial
virtues of the different chemical compositions of the
flower and its cosmetic properties.
following discoveries of a remarkable positive result
in cosmetic and dermatologic properties have been confirmed
in the essential oil produced by the plant called Helichrysum
hydroxyl radical is a very reactive molecule, the production
of which is activated by the different stresses to which
the skin is subjected, pollution, UV, temperature changes
and stressful aggressions. This radical is responsible
for numerous waste products in the cell and especially
the degradation of the membranes by the phenomenon of
lipid peroxidation. Sounds confusing? In fact this radical
is responsible for all the “not wanted waste”
found in your cell which is activated due to stress; unfortunately
it also declines the membranes of your cells due to a
surge of lipid peroxidation.
experiments and tests carried out will show you the realistic
results of Helichrysum Italicum in skin care and its effectiveness
upon wrinkles. This method, used by the cosmetic technicians,
makes it possible to test the protective action of the
essential oil on liposomes, cell membranes for the rest
of us, subjected to an attack by hydroxyl radicals (OH-).
The action of free radicals on the polyunsaturated
fatty acids of the membranes is a “peroxidation”
which leads to the formation of conjugated dienes absorbing
at 233 nm. The activity of the antioxidants is, therefore,
determined by their capacity to prevent peroxidation of
polyunsaturated fatty acids contained in liposomes. This
peroxidation is characterized by an absorption peak at
233 nm. Cosmetic technicians found that the essential
oil of Helichrysum italicum inhibits lipid peroxidation
by 82%+2% under the experimental conditions. This result
is remarkably positive.
under the same operating conditions, an essential oil
of lavender inhibited lipid peroxidation by 19%+2%. This
is a great explanation as to why Helichrysum Italicum
is as efficient as an anti ageing in cosmetic skin care.
antiradical activity is essential in the battle against
accelerated aging. The preferential targets of the free
radicals are the lipids of the cell membranes. By attacking
them, they disturb the meticulous organization. The membrane
loses its fluidity and its cohesion. In the long term,
it breaks up and can no longer fulfil its role as a protective
barrier. The connecting tissue, constituted essentially
of collagen, is also affected. This accelerates the aging
process. That explains that then! We all need to protect
our lipids with Helichrysum Italicum.
simple concepts should be kept in mind to better comprehend
the phenomenon of accelerated ageing :
two main reasons should be kept in mind which will help
you to understand better the phenomenon of accelerated
ageing. Just a small comment, it’s a bit of paradox
that we spend much of our youth trying to look older and
the best part of adulthood trying to look younger.
first is an atom, which has an electrically neutral
set of elements in equilibrium.
second is a free radical, which is an atom possessing
a single electron which confers upon the radical a very
high degree of reactivity in the search for another electron
to restore a stable state.
sure the amount of research and hard work over a long
period of time of such quality by the cosmetic technicians
can only, and I’m sure you’ll agree readers,
be immensely thanked.
In the search for a stable state, the free radicals are
very active and induce noteworthy reactional modifications
within the cell, modifications that can reach the DNA
and the amino acids. They depolymerize the glycoprotein
constituents of the fundamental substance such as hyaluronic
acid. This is the stuff that re-pulps your lips, naturally,
or other parts of, more commonly, your face.
think that most of us recognize the term “free radicals”,
and no, it’s not a political movement just the little
monsters responsible for wrinkles. The free radicals have
a profoundly negative impact on the lipids, proteins and
other components of the cell membrane. The attacks on
the cell membranes, due to the peroxidation process, increase
with age. Peroxides and free radicals are directly linked
with this latter mentioned process. These studies also
showed the importance of antioxidants in the longevity
process. In fact, the animal or plant cell protects itself
against oxidation agents by means of enzyme systems and

composition for the Face
The following formulation of a product for the face containing
0.7% of essential oil of Helichrysum italicum was prepared
to demonstrate antiwrinkle activity:
study of the cutaneous relief was performed. The test
involved 20 volunteer subjects. Application of cosmetics
or other topical products was discontinued 48 hours prior
to the beginning of the experiment. The product was applied
each morning for four weeks and the following parameters
parameter provides information on the total surface
area of the wrinkles (mm<2> )
Average at Time 0=4.571 mm<2 >
Average at Time 4 weeks =2.843 mm<2 >
Thus, a decrease of 37.8%.
Number of Wrinkles:
Average at Time 0=61.3
Average at Time 4 weeks =52.7
Thus, a decrease of 14%.
Average Depth of the Wrinkles (Taking into account the
number of wrinkles that had disappeared after treatment):
A decrease of 19.8%.
results for these three parameters were very satisfactory
and demonstrated the remarkable antiwrinkle property of
the compositions according to the invention. Biomechanical
properties of the skin with the composition for the face
lead to the recruitment of twenty users for daily application
over a four week period.

oil was incorporated in nanospheres to optimize the activity
of Helichrysum italicum essential oil. This method has
the advantage of increasing the bio availability of the
active ingredients. Their controlled release augments
the chrono availability at the level of the cutaneous
cells. The Helichrysum italicum essential oil was encapsulated
in spherulites. Spherulites are multilamellar vesicles
of approximately one micron which imitate the structure
of an onion. The hundreds of membranes of which they are
composed form an alternation of bilayers containing sucroester
and an optimized level of essential oils. Because of the
slow and controlled release of the active ingredient,
the spherulites make it possible to reduce the percentage
of essential oil while still retaining the same level
of efficacy. The benefit is a very improved tolerance,
hypoallergenic and an activation of the microcirculation.
