Seeds of parsley
Fights impurities and keeps the skin clean throughout the day. When the parsley withers, it leaves small seeds containing a marvellous oil which we gently extract by steam distillation. Petroselinum Crispum Oil: The name originates from the Greek word petros which means stone as, in nature, the plant grows in stony terrain. The oil contains myristicin, apiole, Tetramethylbenzene and pinene that have the following amazing properties for your skin:

  • Highly anti-microbacterial, which means that it helps to eliminate impurities and the growth of microbes and bacteria.
  • The oil is astringent which means that it will make skin and pores contract and strengthen the barrier function of the skin.
  • Highly antiseptic which means that it will fight off infection and inflammation as well as reduce the pollution and such cell damage as we experience through an ordinary day (oxidative stress).

The oil is light yellow and has an exceptional fragrance which you will also experience in the cream.

Glasswort
Natural and efficient moisturiser which will smoothen the skin. Glasswort (also known as marsh samphire) is a plant which, as no other, can retain moisture. It is practically natural hyaluron. The glasswork retains moisture and minerals – even through the hottest summers.

Its scientific name is Salicornia Europaea. You can almost hear that this herb grows along salty shorelines and, if you eat it, you will experience salty and sodium carbonate flavours. In addition to its moisture-binding properties, it also contains large amounts of sodium carbonate, salts, minerals, amino acid, and peptides which, in our extract, will be a most welcome gift for dry or blemished skin.

The link between moisture and sodium carbonate works wonders in the fight against a dry, scarred, or blemished skin. Together, the two will not only dissolve dead skin cells but also curb inflammation. It is too strong for rosacea but fantastic against acne or blackspots. Recent scientific studies, published on 7 May 2020, has demonstrated that extract of glasswort will not only bind moisture to the skin but also enhance the skin’s resistance against oxidative stress/cell damage and increase regeneration and rehabilitation of damaged skin.

Beets
Binds moisture with instant and long-term effect. Beta Vulgaris grows in the wild everywhere in Denmark, with the most widespread being the wild sea beet which is the one I use. I’m sure you are familiar with a few beet types yourself – such as beetroot, candy-striped beetroot or sugar beet.

Today, there are new standards for cellular extraction which put us in a position to produce water-soluble extract from sea beet which is a source of Lysine Amino Acid. Studies have shown that lysine will not only alleviate the inflammation you experience from acne, as it also contributes to an enhanced collagen structure which will provide increased resilience and firmness of skin.

But, but, but… Ooh the wonderful moisture. Beta Vulgaris Root Extract will enhance the concentration of NMFs (natural moisturising factors). Thus, it binds and increases the skin’s own moisture balance. A test cream was enriched by 1% beet extract. After application, measurements of the test persons’ skin made every second hour by way of a Corneometer, proved the maintenance of an increased hydration level for more than 8 hours in those test persons that were given Beet Extract and not placebo.

Cloudberries
Protective antioxidant against daily pollution. Cloudberries is an herblike plant which is 8-15 cm in height and mainly grows in moorland. Most people have probably forgotten about it and the effect of its seeds. And this despite the fact that our use of it dates back to before the Viking Age.

The seeds are quite small but nonetheless they are amazing potent, especially with respect to Alpha Linolenic Acid and Gamma Linolenic Acid – perhaps better known as Omega 3 and Omega 6 (GLA). Disturbance of the skin barrier function caused by epidermal hyperproliferation will result in dry skin and high trans-epidermal water loss ((TEWL). Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) should be efficacious in the treatment of TEWL and epidermal hyperproliferation. Or in plain language: These fatty acids will strengthen your skin’s protective barrier and leave you with a profound, long-lasting hydration of dry skin. Omega 3 and 6 can retain moisture through even the harshest wintry conditions – the berry itself withstands frosty weather down to 20 degrees below freezing point.

The seeds of the cloudberry contain high levels of nutritional content, in particular ellagic acid. Ellagic acid is a polyphenol which is efficacious in the treatment of wrinkles and inflammation. A study concerning the effects of ellagic acid demonstrated it to be efficacious in the protection of collagen against degeneration, and it proved capable of reducing inflammatory reactions in dry skin stemming from UV-radiation damage.

Rubus Chamaemorus Oil also contains several of the wonderful vitamin E variants – such as types that are capable of penetrating the skin to increase the collagen levels as well as securing the optimal regeneration of such damages to which our skin is exposed on a daily basis (oxidative stress). This means that those among us suffering from dry, damaged, or blemished skin will get help to regenerate our skin without scar tissue and damages.

Vitamin B3
Has a calming effect on the skin and counteracts redness. Nicotinamide is a special water-soluble Vitamin B3, namely an amide (also called niacinamide). We find the largest content in the oldest rye variants such as for instance slash-and-burn rye which has been grown in the Nordic region since year 0.

Vitamin B3 is tolerated by all skin types, and it will alleviate irritated and eczema-ridden skin, improving the skin’s capacity for accepting other remedial ingredients. This is why it is beneficial to all skin types and in the fight against atopic skin, eczema, rosacea, or perioral dermatitis.

Nicotinamide helps to repair damaged DNA and to reduce the immunosuppressive effects of sun-induced UV rays – the so-called oxidative stress factors. In other words, B3 helps against the degeneration of your skin and against premature signs of ageing such as discolouration and wrinkles. Research has not arrived at a full understanding of how this type of vitamin B facilitates the contraction of pores, but it does.

SPF 30
Protection against the degeneration of cells is no trivial matter, as the worst damage is owing to the rays of the sun. This is why it was a matter of course to mix SPF30 into your new Face Cream, in order that you no longer need to worry about the protection of your skin.

I chose a combination on the basis of the following parameters:

  • They are all free from hormone disrupting substances, and they are all approved and supported by the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, Asthma Allergy Nordic and AllergyCertified.
  • I opted out of using physical sunscreens because, at SPF30 level, they would cause the formation of a white film on your skin. Besides, the physical nano-screens are not Ecocert COSMOS approved.
  • I chose the gentlest ingredients with respect to protection, health, your skin, and our environment.

Chemical sunscreens contain substances that penetrate into the upper skin layer. When the UV rays hit the skin, the screen will absorb the UV rays, thus preventing radiation from reaching the lower skin layers where it will give rise to damage. Being invisible on the skin, the chemical sunscreens act as invisible protection.

With the spatula, you take an amount of cream equal to the size of a hazelnut /teaspoonful and apply to face and neck. Remember to apply a high SPF throughout the day during prolonged stays in the sun.
