The Secret of Terpenes: How They Benefit Our Skin
Have you ever wondered how plants make the world smell so good? Well, they have a secret ingredient called terpenes! Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in plants like trees and citrus fruits that not only make them smell nice but also do amazing things for our skin. Let's explore how these magical terpenes help us with some common skin problems
Terpenes are for Skin Happiness
Calming and Soothing: Sometimes our skin gets angry and feels irritated. Terpenes can be like a cool breeze on a hot day, soothing our skin and making it feel better. They are like a friendly hug that calms down our skin when it's upset. Some terpenes, such as those found in lavender flowers, have soothing properties that can reduce skin irritation and redness. They're like a hug for our skin! It's no wonder we named our lavender aromatherapy bar soap, Calm, for the soothing and calming effects of lavender on our skin.
Moisturizing Magic: Dry skin can feel itchy and uncomfortable, but terpenes have a solution! Certain terpenes, like the ones in citrus fruits, help to hydrate and moisturize our skin. They lock in moisture and make our skin feel soft and smooth, just like a ripe orange! Revive Facial Oil contains citrus terpenes which help to revive and nourish your skin.
Mood Boosters: Some terpenes can make us feel better by improving our mood. Have you ever felt happy and energized after smelling an orange? That's because terpenes called limonene are in oranges, and they can give us a positive boost. It's no wonder we favor the sweet citrus terpene of Sweet Orange in Encourage Aromatherapy Bar soap to be that boost of motivation you need.
Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Properties:
Some terpenes exhibit antioxidant properties, which can help protect cells from oxidative stress and damage caused by free radicals. Moreover, certain terpenes possess antimicrobial qualities, potentially aiding in the fight against harmful bacteria. Example terpenes in Tea Tree Floral Water and Cleanse Aromatherapy Bar Soap is our go-to for fighting acne causing bacteria.
Anti aging terpenes.
As we grow older, our skin changes. But certain terpenes also known as “ gero- protectors” can help us keep our skin looking young and fresh. These terpenes have magic powers that make wrinkles and lines less noticeable like time travelers for our skin! Products like Restore Facial Oil, Daily AHA Exfoliant with Neroli and Daily AHA Exfoliant with Chamomile contain these gero-protectors. So if you are looking for anti-aging skin care products, you should try these!
We Love Terpenes because we understand the power of nature.
Terpenes are like nature's special helpers for our skin. They can calm and soothe, moisturize and hydrate, protect and fight bad things, keep our skin looking young, and make spots and bumps disappear. Next time you smell a fresh lemon or a lovely flower, remember that terpenes are not just about nice scents—they have superpowers that can make our skin feel and look amazing. So, let's thank nature for these marvelous terpenes and enjoy the magic they bring to our skin!
