For sensitive and reactive skin, we do not especially recommend the use of essential oils in your treatments. This is why we have developed PHYTO-ACTIVE CONCENTRE, a safe and effective alternative for all skin types. However, everyone’s skin is unique and skin can negatively react to any ingredient. Even the gentlest ingredients can cause a reaction on certain people’s skin, so we recommend patch testing a small amount of the product on the inside skin of the arm area to ascertain its compatibility with your skin. All our products are nevertheless tested under dermatological control for the comfort and the tolerance of your skin.
FROM WHAT AGE ONWARD SHOULD YOU USE SKOV ELEMENTS SKINCARE?
Skin aging is different for each person. As Dr. Wild points out in his study “Complementing the genome with an exposome: The outstanding challenge of environmental exposure measurement in molecular epidemiology”, skin aging is caused for 80% by external factors such as the sun, pollution and stress. We all have a different life – but what is certain – is that we all profit from effective and clean age-defying skincare from 25 years old onwards. Our skincare products are designed to protect and repair all skin types, even the most sensitive and reactive.
WHAT IS CRYO-GRINDING?
Cryo-grinding is the act of cooling plants at extremely low temperatures and then reducing them into very small particles. This obtained fine powder is packed with all the constituents and benefits of the plant. There is no loss in nutrients, vitamins and potency; it’s all about preserving the full essence of the botanicals. This powder is thus the closest form to the plant as you can find it in its natural habitat.
HOW ARE ALL THE PLANT NUTRIENTS TRANSFERRED INTO THE OIL?
In order to avoid long macerations that can damage the quality of the active ingredients and the most fragile constituents of the plants, we are able to transfer all their nutrients thanks to an innovative and perfectly safe green technology using low frequency sound waves.
WHAT PACKAGING USES SKOV ELEMENTS?
