Why put green tea in skin care products?

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Most people know green tea as a beverage option not an ingredient added to skin and beauty products. The facts are the same it is filled with antioxidants. At Abella Skin Care we added green tea extract to our ColorShade SPF 35 not only to help with inflammation caused by sun exposure but to neutralize the free radicals that help UV rays cause damage to the skin. Green tea has a calming effect on the skin and reduces redness. The perfect combination of broad-spectrum sun protection, color, and moisture with all the benefits of Vitamins D&E and antioxidants to help protect and restore.

What is the ingredient Glycerin and why is it in skin care products?

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

skincare-ingredientsWhen I think of Glycerin I think of hydration. When in a skin care seminar recently I heard a speaker refer to glycerin as a humectant, which is the technical term for attracts water.  Good to know since skin contain 64% water. Glycerin is an ingredient made from natural products such as, vegetable oil.  When apply on the body glycerin maintains and balances the water level in your skin. It is an ingredient that prevents dry skin, helps fight psoriasis and accelerates healing.

Insider fact:  Besides all the hydrating benefits of glycerin, Chemists also like the ingredient because it promotes shelf life and prevents ingredients from oxidization witch means, lose their potency too fast.
