These are the ingredients we are proud of
Alpha hydroxy acids are a group of natural acids found in foods. Alpha hydroxy acids include citric acid (found in citrus fruits), glycolic acid (found in sugar cane), lactic acid (found in sour milk and tomato juice), malic acid (found in apples), tartaric acid (found in grapes), and others. In our Juniper mist there are all these five different natural source AHAs included. The skin benefits of AHAs are gently exfoliating and thus brightening effect. They make the skin more even-toned, smoother and help it to better retain its natural moisture making it eventually firmer and younger looking.
Birch juice/birch water is the sap directly tapped from birch trees. It is packed with nutrients, including amino acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins, and xylitol (a natural sugar alcohol from the birch). Birch sap is incredibly hydrating, its molecules are very tiny, allowing the skin to better absorb it. It helps your skin to retain moisture and maintain a positive oil-moisture balance. Birch juice contains also skin loving vitamin B3, a niacinamide that helps even out your complexion, and popular vitamin C that brightens the skin and boosts cell turnover. The nutrients in the birch sap also help reduce inflammation so it is suitable for sensitive or irritated skin too.
Chaga mushroom is a fungus that lives on live birch trees. It has been used medically for centuries thanks to it´s amazing health benefits. This mushroom is filled with Riboflavanoids and powerful anti-inflammatory properties that have a great effect on all types of skin. Chaga includes a reliable source of effective antioxidant enzymes which helps to keep the skin hydrated and nourished and helps in the restoration and regeneration of skin cells. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) score for Chaga mushrooms is the highest among natural foods. It has the ability to restore elasticity to the skin while doing a great job of aiding in collagen production.
Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a natural substance occurring in our bodies. It is mostly found in the skin, connective tissue and eyes. It has a stunning capacity to attract and hold onto 1000x its weight in moisture. However the amount of hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases when aging and due to external issues like sun, pollution etc. The skin benefits of hyaluronic acid are; hydrating, filling fine lines and smoothing and firming the skin making it look younger and healthier.
