Although there’s still a lot of research to be conducted on organic botanical skincare ingredients, there are two that have been used historically and been reported to have positive visible effects benefiting your skin’s appearance: green tea and aloe vera. These potent ingredients illustrate age-defying and moisturizing qualities—and they’re even better in their organic forms.
At IMAGE, we incorporate organic green tea and aloe vera into our ORMEDIC line. Here’s why:
The Benefits of Green Tea
Green tea is a source of antioxidants. The botanical is an excellent source of polyphenols, specifically catechins. The most abundant polyphenol found in green tea is EGCG, epigallocatechin gallate. These polyphonic compounds are thought to aid in maintaining the appearance of an optimum complexion.
If you’re interested in reaping the benefits of green tea, try ORMEDIC Balancing Antioxidant Serum. Packed with organic green tea, it will soothe and moisturize for a glowing, healthy complexion. It can also be used after shaving or waxing to calm irritated skin.
The Supreme Versatility of Aloe Vera
Aloe helps the skin stay youthfully resilient
Aloe vera has been shown to aid skin by supporting collagen. Collagen is a protein (the most abundant one in the body) found in skin responsible for keeping it plump and smooth. Applying aloe vera to the skin regularly can potentially improve moisture content to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Aloe can help support collagen and elastin
Elastic skin has a great ability to bounce back and is less likely to appear wrinkled. Aloe also has a moisturizing effect on skin cells, allowing them to bind together. This makes skin softer and illuminates aloe’s moisturizing effects.
Aloe is a remarkable soother for tender skin
Also like green tea, aloe vera has been shown to be quite effective at calming sensitized skin.
Introduce organic aloe into your skincare routine with our ORMEDIC Balancing Bio-Peptide Crème. This remarkable product gently exfoliates when applied nightly. Used regularly, it reveals smooth, supple skin by maintaining the moisture balance of your skin to promote a visibly vibrant appearance.
