How our Organic Natural Skin Care Products work
Antique Apothecary 100% Pure Natural Gentle Organic-based Skin Care Products nourish all the layers of your skin in a healthy and natural way. Because, it is important know exactly what you are putting on your skin and, if we are trying to maintain a body free from of every kind of toxins, the right decision to make is to choose 100% Pure Natural Gentle Organic-based Skin Care Products.
Our skin is made up of several layers:
- the epidermis, the part we can touch and which is made-up of cells high in keratin,
- the dermis, where most of our blood vessels are hosted and
- the sub-cutaneous tissue.
Keratin “creates” a semi-waterproof barrier, which reduces moisture loss, maintaining skin hydrated. To improve hydration and ensure nutritive ingredients reach the deep layers of your skin, the active ingredients must get pass this semi-waterproof barrier.
How is that possible? Creams are water and oil emulsions. As water and oil don’t mix, an emulsifying agent is added to the ingredients, in order to keep all ingredients well bonded.
However, once the product is applied to the skin (epidermis) the oils tend to migrate away from water ingredients, towards other oil components that are in the dermis, helped by the water ingredients. Consequently, substances are diffused into the bloodstream.
The ingredients, in order to be able to cross the skin barrier, must have a low molecular weight; essential oils are characterised by a low molecular weight (below 500 Dalton) and for this reason they cross quite readily into the bloodstream.
Carrier oils, such as olive oil, almond oil, etc, have a higher molecular weight (around 800 Dalton) and for this they are absorbed slowly, sitting on the skin and acting as lubricants.
Our 100% Pure, Natural, Gentle and Organic-based Skin Care Products by combining essential oils with carrier oils nourish all the layers of your skin in a healthy and natural way. Because, if we are trying to maintain a body free from of every kind of toxins, the right decision to make is to choose 100% Pure, Natural, Gentle and Organic-based Skin Care Products.
Our Skin Care Products comes in MIRON VIOLETTGLAS
Organic Natural Cosmetics by Antique Apothecary are 100% Natural 100% Pure, Organic (where possible) with no additives, no chemicals, no harsh preservatives, no artificial fragrances, no parabens, no EDTA. It is therefore even more important to ensure that all the goodness of our products reaches our customers in all its efficacy and potency. To achieve this:
we always include a spatula to be used to take some of the product instead of using the fingers; in fact, picking up the product with one’s fingers can lead to the transfer of bacteria from the hands to the product and we only use MIRON Violettglas containers.
MIRON Violettglas does not allow the light from the visible spectrum to penetrate in the container, while it allows penetration of UVA violet and IR frequencies. So, sensitive materials stored in MIRON Violettglas are highly protected against processes of decomposition caused by light influences from the visible spectrum while they benefit of the positive effects that result from UVA, violet and IR frequencies.
In other words, you could not find a better container for your 100% natural 100% organic skincare and herbal remedy product!
