Wild Earth Botanics - anti aging beauty balm
Sign me up for cruelty free, plastic free products! Bonus if they’re made in Kenya. Wild Earth Botanics is all this and inspired by the wild, healing and nourishing power of plants, and the simplicity of nature.
I was gifted this beauty balm by the lovely Tessa from wild earth botanics.
Rosehip Seed Oil - keeps cell walls strong so that they don’t lose water. Has antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It is rich in vitamins A and C, which are both necessary to produce collagen. Vitamin C also aids in cell regeneration, boosting overall radiance. Rosehip oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which are essential for tissue and cell regeneration in the skin.
Sea buckthorn oil – skin regeneration and repair properties. Improves blood circulation, facilitates oxygenation of the skin, removes excess toxins from the body and easily penetrates through the epidermis. Protects against infections, prevents allergies, eliminates inflammation and inhibits the aging process. It strengthens the lipid barrier of the epidermis in dry skin and protects against trans-epidermal water loss. Stimulates the function of sebaceous glands, unblock pores and limits the number of blackheads.
Neroli Essential Oil - stimulates skin cells to regenerate, giving it anti-scarring properties. It is also an antiseptic, disinfectant, antispasmodic, bactericidal, antidepressant and sedative.
Let me first say, aside from the key ingredients, this balm has so so many other amazing ingredients. The essential oil synergy helps to prevent dehydration and keep skin soft and supple and the blend generally helps to improve skin tone, prevent wrinkles, hydrate and boost collagen production. This is the first product to ever brighten the hyper-pigmentation under my eyes. The balm melts easily on the skin and leaves a slight shine - which you can dab off if you’re uncomfortable with. Despite the scent, it causes no irritation, making it great for sensitive skin.
However, I really wish it came with a little spatula or something bc I’d get a lot of product in/under my nails.
It costs Ksh1500/$15.
As you go through life, grow through it.
