The benefits of natural skin care ingredients

Natural skin care ingredients have been recognised for their rejuvenating properties for thousands of years. As we shall see, flowers and natural oils are often excellent sources of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, all of which have fantastic anti-ageing properties. If you’re looking to make your skin shine, using ingredients which can bring out your natural beauty is an essential first step.

 

And with natural skin care ingredients, you’ll also avoid lots of the chemicals and compounds found in synthetic skin care - which is great for both your skin and the environment.

Our fermented flowers

 

We carefully select flowers with recognised cosmetic and beneficial properties.
To obtain our floral active ingredients, we first extract the main botanical compounds. These are then transformed and enhanced by our fermentation process.
 

Enhance your skin’s beauty with botanical extracts and natural ingredients that work with your skin to maintain a healthy pH and regulate the production of sebum. Soothe, tone and nourish your skin with botanicals which have been used in skincare for millennia.



Camelia sinensis

Camellia sinensis has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for millennia and is one of our great natural ingredients.
Research has shown that extracts from the camellia sinensis flower have antioxidant powers, protecting your skin from the effects of free radicals.
We combine fermented camellia sinensis with fermented olive oil in our formulas.

 

Honeysuckle

Honeysuckle is one of the ancient secrets of traditional Chinese medicine.
Extracts obtained from honeysuckle flowers are rich in flavonoids, which are known to reduce oxidative stress.
We combine fermented honeysuckle with hyaluronic acid and fermented olive oil in our formulas.

 

Helichrysum

Helichrysum

Originally from Australia and used in Europe since the 19th century, Helichrysum flowers are recognised for their extraordinary beauty and resilience.
We blend real white helichrysum petals with fermented argan oil and pink helichrysum petals with fermented safflower oil.

 

Jasmine

Jasmine

Jasmine is used in both traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda - traditional Indian medicine - having long been recognised for its moisturising and emollient properties.
We combine fermented jasmine with fermented angelica oil in our skincare range.

Portulaca

Portulaca

Known in ancient times for its therapeutic virtues, Portulaca is prized for its strong antioxidant and detoxifying properties.
Its leaves are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, minerals and vitamins C, A and E, which act against oxidative stress and fight the formation of free radicals.
In our formulas, we have combined fermented purslane with fermented lactobacillus and fermented olive oil.

Our natural oils

 

We carefully select only the most precious natural oils. The fermentation process transforms and enhances the properties of our natural skin care ingredients.


Thanks to the fermentation process, our fermented natural oils contain at least 10 times more essential fatty acids,* including short-chain Omega 6 and Omega 9. Our fermented olive oil, for example, contains 50 times more Omega 6 and Omega 9 than unfermented olive oil. For this reason, the formulas of Florena Fermented Skincare have a powerful antioxidant function, which means that it fights against the harmful effects of free radicals and strengthens the hydrolipidic film of the skin, protecting it from external influences.
*Compared to unfermented oils.

Angelica oil

Angelica oil is a natural skincare ingredient that has long been used in traditional Korean medicine, where it is recognised for its invigorating properties.
In our face cleansing formulas, we have combined fermented angelica oil with fermented jasmine.

 

Argan oil

Argan_oil

We use argan oil as one of our natural skincare ingredients thanks to its extraordinary properties and benefits for skin. It is obtained by squeezing the fruits of Argania spinosa, known as the Tree of Life. Argan oil is appreciated for its elasticising and antioxidant properties.
In our formulas, we have blended fermented argan oil with white helichrysum petals.

 

Safflower oil

Safflower_oil

The use of safflower oil dates back to ancient times: the Egyptians were the first to discover its emollient and nourishing properties and to use it as an ointment.
The safflower plant is so resilient that it can withstand the most extreme weather conditions.
We have blended fermented safflower oil with pink helichrysum petals in our formulas.

 

Olive oil

Olive oil has been prized for its many virtues for over 6,000 years as a natural skincare ingredient. Its prodigious antioxidant and moisturising properties make it a vital part of our all-natural skin care range.

Our natural actives

 

All of our formulas contain natural skin care ingredients that have been derived exclusively from plant sources - sources which we have chosen for their naturally beneficial cosmetic properties.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic_acid

Hyaluronic acid is widely recognised for its moisturising properties. As we age, the skin's natural ability to produce hyaluronic acid diminishes, and wrinkles begin to form. In the Florena Fermented Skincare formulas, we use fermented hyaluronic acid, which derives exclusively from renewable plant sources and is obtained from wheat.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E

Vitamin E can be found naturally in some foods, is added to others, and is also available as a dietary supplement. Vitamin E is the general collective name for a group of fat-soluble compounds with distinctive antioxidant properties. We use Tocopherol, which is derived from soy beans as one of our natural skincare ingredients.

Lactobacillus

Lactobacillus

Lactobacillus is an ingredient that has become increasingly popular in face care formulas. It is known for its ability to visibly improve hydration, elasticity and radiance whilst also decreasing lines and wrinkles. The lactobacillus that we use was developed specifically for us and comes from the fermentation of lactic acid. In our formulas, we have combined fermented lactobacillus with fermented purslane and fermented olive oil.
