HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care
The Vegetable Glycerine is an excellent humectant which helps to keep the skin moist and hydrated. Use in creams, lotions and daily defence serums.

Lingonberry is considered to be a super fruit in Scandinavia where it grows wild and is the most harvested wild berry. The berry extract contains large amounts of flavonoids, phenolic compounds and antioxidants.

Research in Beijing found that the polyphenol content helped to diminish visible pigmentation in the skin including damage from photoaging (sun damage).

The good level of antioxidants help to protect all skin types from free radical damage. Use in daily defence creams and lotions.

It is anti inflammatory so use in irritated skin conditions and products for acne prone skin.
It is vitamin and mineral rich which is excellent for all skin types.

It boosts skin cell regeneration so is excellent choice to use in anti aging gels, serums, creams and lotions.

Hair Care
The Organic Lingonberry Glycerol Extract will calm down irritated skin such as psoriasis prone itchy scalps. Add to hair conditioners and hair packs.
