5 Good reasons for using Toner

Cucumber Extract

Cucumber extract is super food for skin. The juice is composed largely of proteins, lipids, Vitamin C, and a variety of minerals.  It possesses moisturising and astringent properties and can soothe and relieve puffy skin. Cucumber extract has natural desquamation properties (meaning it aids in your skin's natural shedding of its outer layer during cell turnover) keeping your skin looking fresh and young. It is also an astringent (meaning it tightens and firms your skin) to revitalize it and help reduce the appearance of the physical signs of aging. The proteins and lipids it contains give your skin a lovely smooth feel.

Chamomile Hydrosol

Chamomile promotes smooth, healthy skin and relieves irritations thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Chamomile penetrates below the skin surface into the deeper layers of the skin, preserving its youthful appearance, complexion and immune defense.  It is also useful for getting rid of signs of aging such as dark spots and fine lines.

Witch Hazel

If you’re looking for a natural way to tighten the skin and slow down signs of aging like scars, redness, discoloration, dryness and puffiness around the eyes, then look no further than witch hazel. Witch hazel tightens skin and help protect healthy skin cells into older age.

Keep your skin free from irritating chemical products that can alter oil production and increase dryness. Witch hazel has been shown to help protect collagen and skin elasticity just as well as many commercial beauty products.  Witch hazel’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties make it a great way to preserve skin’s elasticity, saving your complexion and helping you deal with the effects of environmental stress on your skin. 

Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish its moisture. Because of its nutritional qualities and antioxidant properties, the skin heals quicker. Aloe moisturizes the skin without giving it a greasy feel, so it`s perfect for anyone with an oily skin complexion. Aloe is soothing and can reduce skin inflammations, blistering and itchiness, while helping the skin to heal more rapidly and is used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema.

As we age, everyone begins to worry about the appearance of fine lines and the loss of elasticity in their skin. Aloe leaves contain a plethora of antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E that can help improve the skin's natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated.

Organic Rose Water

Bulgarian Rose Water is a 100% pure and natural product. The rose water is produced via steam-distillation from fresh rose blossoms, picked during the annual Rose Harvest and does not contain any preservatives, additives, or synthetic ingredients.

Notes on Toner

Witch Hazel is a brilliant ingredient in any skin care.  The only downside to using organic, alcohol free Witch Hazel is that it has a very distinct smell.  Many of our customers love it and some don’t.  To preserve its natural properties, we declined to mask the smell with a fragrance.
