Zoom on the ingredients:
> Soy wax is a natural non-GMO vegetable wax that restores the effectiveness of essential oils at low temperatures; it balances the texture and gives it its suppleness: it thus melts delicately at the temperature of the skin. Thanks to its stimulating action on the skin, soy contributes to improving the elasticity and hydration of the skin.
> Arrowroot: this root is used to texture the balm to reduce the oily texture. The balms have a "dry oil" texture very nice, which allows to dress quickly and not to "shine" a thousand lights :-)
> Marula oil: this precious oil is the treasure of this anti-aging care! Softening and revitalizing, it is rich in natural antioxidants, tocopherols and phytosterols. Easily absorbed by the skin, it slows down the dehydration and acts doubly on the wrinkles related to the normal process of loss of water of the epidermis, and on the loss of tone of the mature skins. It helps to maintain tone and elasticity. Its silky touch does not leave a greasy look. Our Marula oil is produced in Madagascar by Malagasy farmers engaged in the eco-responsible management of forest resources.
> Grape seed oil: very balanced in fatty acids, it nourishes the skin in depth. Rich in polyphenols, it strengthens skin tone; it is also emollient, nourishes the skin deeply. Dry texture, it penetrates quickly without feeling "greasy".
> Shea olein: called "the gold of women" in Africa, raw Shea butter deeply moisturizes dry and delicate skins. Very rich in fatty acids and vitamins A, D, E and F, its moisturizing and protective properties take care of your skin.
> Essential Oil of Geranium Rosat: rich in monoterpene alcohols, Geranium Essential Oil is a healing oil very useful to prevent the formation of stretch marks. It must not be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
> Essential Oil Palmarosa: astringent and moisturizing, Palmarosa Essential Oil acts on the elasticity of the skin.
> Supercritical CO2 Extract of Rosemary: This valuable extract acts as a preservative and antioxidant of oils.
- Ibaïna solid balms are made in Mauritius: they are studied not to melt at ambient temperatures, even high one! It is the external temperature of the human body (36 °) that gently warms the balm, so it must be slowly passed over the skin (to facilitate its warming) and on the edge (the application surface is thinner). The balms are solid, but apply them without pressing strongly: it is not useful! You can warm them in your hands if desired or in case of very cold ambient temperature.
- Do not leave your balms exposed to the direct heat of the sun or on a radiator! If the balm melts, it is quite possible to "remould" it by melting it gently in a bain-marie (maximum temperature of 39 °) and then mold it in the container of your choice.
We hope you enjoy this product and its INCI!
