Description

Red Tea and Black Currant Face Lotion is light and delicate.  Filled with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, it helps your face look smooth and feel dewy.

Several months before making my lotion I begin infusing Fractionated Coconut Oil with 4 dried organic herbs including: Chamomile, Calendula, Comfrey and Gotu Kola.

INGREDIENTS OF MY RED TEA AND BLACK CURRANT FACE LOTION:

Water with Red Tea and Chamomile Tea, Black Currant Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil infused with Calendula,Chamomile, Comfrey and Gotu Kola, Argan Oil, Emulsifying-Wax N.F Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Apricot Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Jojoba, Rosehip Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Cetearyl Alcohol, Essential Oil Blend of Rose Geranium, Rosewood, Carrot Seed Oil, Palmarosa, Petitgrain and  Rose Wax, Lactobacillus Coco Nucifera Fruit Extract, Sodium Lactate, Primrose Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Sorbic Acid, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Allantoin, Concentrated Aloe Powder, Vit E

African Red Tea

African Red Tea is also known as Rooibos, redbush tea or just bush tea.  Red Tea contains specific natural polyphenols often referred to as antioxidants. Polyphenols while complex and varied, do seem to play an important protective role in plants. On human skin, they decrease inflammation and protects our cells from oxidation.

Aloe Juice

I’ve used Aloe Juice ever since my grandma would cut some in her garden in Florida. She’d filet it and give it to me to sooth the sunburn on my Canadian wintered skin. There is evidence that Aloe may increase the circulation of small blood vessels and thus enhance skin’s healing ability.

Chamomile

When I am making the tea, I also add dried chamomile for its ability to soothe inflamed and red skin, reduce puffiness and rosacea.

Humectants

All effective lotions I know of call for some form of humectant. Humectants attract and bind water which allows a lotion to continue to moisturize your face. In my lotion I use edible vegetable glycerin. Glycerin is a well understood and easily produced compound.

We often refer to oils as moisturizing, which isn’t exactly true since oils have no water and repel it. We think of oils as moisturizing because they make our skin feel soft and supple by helping our skin retain water. That?s why it is good to put body butters without water on wet ski skin is wet.

Luxury Oils

Depending on the constituents of individual sources, oils can have some astonishing benefits from screening us lightly from the sun, to acting as an antimicrobial, to simply replacing our depleted natural oils. , I use only vegetable oils in all my lotions and they are vegan. For my face lotion, I chose my oils extremely carefully and ended up using many of the same oils I use in my Rose Petal Face Serum.

Black Currant Oil

I centered Black Currant Oil as my featured ingredients since is contains essential fatty acids which are necessary ingredients in our food for healthy hair and skin. It’s important to get enough in your diet but it can also be very helpful to apply oil rich in essential fatty acids on your skin as well according to studies (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9233238).

The Linus Pauling Institute writes that essential fatty acids are: “…an effective means of delivering EFAs to the skin and, eventually, to the rest of body. Because a significant portion of ingested EFAs may be oxidized by the liver (up to 60% of ALA and 20% of LA (37)) before reaching peripheral tissues, topical application may be a more efficient route of delivery for skin effects.”

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba is perhaps one of the best oils for human skin because it most closely resembles our own skin?s sebum, it doesn?t block our pores and is loaded with anti-oxidants. I purchased a 4 oz bottle of jojoba oil several years ago and lost it. I found it about two years later behind a shelf. Expecting it to be rancid, I was surprised to find it wasn?t. Now I understand that it is was the antioxidants (Vit E.) in the jojoba oil that gives it a longer shelf life than most oils. (I write more about antioxidants on my website.)

Argan Oil

Argan Oil or Moroccan Oil is a favorite oil of mine.  Wikipedia has an exciting entry on it that includes a description on how its popularity is improving lives and the ecosystem where it is grown. This oil is high in Vit E.  It has a history as a treatment for many physical concerns including wrinkles and dry skin and hair.

Sodium Lactate

Sodium Lactate acts as a humectants and supports preservation. Wikipedia describes as the sodium salt of lactic acid, and has a mild saline taste. It is produced by fermentation of a sugar source, such as corn or beets, and then, by neutralizing the resulting lactic acid[4] to create a compound.” Sodium Lactate can increase the moisture content of skin by up to 84%.

    A little different from most face lotions but very moisturizing. Seems to work better than almost everything else I’ve ever used. I also like how it smells.

    This too, was one of the first products I purchased from Brenda. This is a part of my after shower (or face washing) regimen. I use the Babchi Blueberry Serum first and follow up with this Face Lotion. Both of these products compliment each other and my face NEVER feels “oily”. My face is well hydrated and I think it looks pretty good for 60!

    This is a great lotion. It smells wonderful and moisturizes so well. It also helps with age/sun spots, and it lasts for a ridiculously long time.

    Red Tea and Black Currant Face Lotion has a rich yellow tint that is not seen. This lush and fluffy lotion is not at all oily. Oh my gosh! Often times homemade concoctions made from very real and natural compounds sit on top of face skin but not this. My skin feels soothed, nourished and supple. Supple is the password here especially for us women in our 60’s. Red Tea and Black Currant Face lotion does not disappoint and I’ll be using it for a lifetime!
