Antioxidants

In short, they are natural substances whose job is to clean up the free radical waste in the cells. In other words, they keep free radicals in check. To explain it further, antioxidants are molecules in cells that prevent free radicals from taking electrons and causing damage to the cells. Antioxidants are able to give an electron to a free radical without becoming destabilised themselves, thus stopping the free radical chain reaction. Well-known antioxidants include beta-carotene and other carotenoids, lutein, resveratrol, vitamin C, vitamin E, lycopene and other phytonutrients.

Overall, antioxidants contribute to:

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Normalise the natural exfoliation rate of the skin.
  • Protect the skin from UV radiation.
  • Accelerate the healing process of wounds and scars.
Apricot Oil

Prunus armeniaca oil

 is obtained from the kernels (seeds) of apricots. In short, it is a very light oil that nurtures a soft skin, quite similar to almond oil. Rich in active natural ingredients, apricot kernel oil contains, along with other fatty acids, Omega 3, 6 and 9, as well as Vitamins A and E.

In particular, Omega fatty acids are known to maintain softness, suppleness and radiance of skin, provide anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory protection, and keep skin moisturised. On the other hand, Vitamin A protects against UV radiation, stimulates collagen and cell regeneration, in order to keep skin healthy. It also smooths wrinkles and fine lines and protects skin against bacteria and toxins. Finally, Vitamin E has antioxidant properties that fight free radicals, boost circulation, and prevent moisture loss.

Arnica

Arnica montana (Arnica)

This flower belongs to the Compo­sitae family, in other words, it is a rela­tive of the common daisy. Arnica has been used for centuries to treat bruising, swelling and pain associated with soft tissue injury. Today, it is trusted by professional athletes to soothe sore muscles, by prominent cosmetic surgeons to reduce post-procedure pain and swelling, and by anyone with a soft tissue trauma or bruise. Additionally, arnica can also be used to relieve stiffness caused by arthritis, flying or long-distance driving. The powerful antioxidants and essential oils found in arnica have rejuvenating and anti-inflammatory properties.

Arnica is a natural pain reliever. In detail, it can accelerate the healing process by stimulating white blood cells to disperse the trapped blood from the injured part and repair the damage. Moreover, arnica can be used as a muscle relaxant, especially after a bath. It can be particularly effective on tired, sore feet, while it is not advisable to use arnica on open wounds.

Beeswax

Cera Alba

Overall, beeswax is a unique substance found nowhere else in nature, that contains about 300 nutrients, known to our ancestors for its healing and stimulating properties. In order to produce one kilogram of beeswax, the worker bees must consume about eight kilograms of honey. They form beeswax, so that they can raise their young in honeycomb cells.

Beeswax has antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that fight chapped skin and bacterial infections, affecting us most in the dry, winter months. In detail, it is a natural humectant that pulls moisture from the atmosphere and delivers it to our skin without smothering or clogging up the pores. Moreover, it is an excellent source of regenerative Vitamin A, known for its anti-ageing, reconstructive and rehydrating properties. Finally, beeswax contains fatty acids that are compatible with skin lipids, thus protecting it by creating a safety layer that prevents irritation.

This natural ingredient, has antibiotic and disinfectant properties, prohibiting skin infections while contributing to a healthy glow. Bergamot oil assists in a uniform distribution of melanin, and diminishes the appearance of age spots and blemishes to refine the skin’s texture.

Calendula

Calendula Officinalis

This is the scientific name of the plant marigold, which is native to Mediterranean countries. Especially in Greece, it is a very common plant and is found in many parts of the country. Calendula was used in ancient Greek, Roman, Arabic and Indian culture as a healing herb, but also as an ingredient in food and cosmetics, even in fabrics.

We obtain calendula’s essential oil by an extremely mild extraction of the golden blossoms of the plant. It is an excellent source of natural ingredients, of powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds. These help increase collagen synthesis and contribute to a smooth, even-toned skin that glows with youthful vitality. Overall, Calendula extract is emollient, soothing and protective.

Cinnamon essential oil

Cinnamomum Verum Oil

Cinnamon is one of the world’s oldest and most valuable spices. According to a 7th century BCE Greek poem, it was believed that Cinnamon grew in Arabia, along with Myrrh, Labdanum, and incense, and that these plants were so respected that they were shielded by winged snakes. The oil is derived from the bark or leaves of several types of trees, including the Cinnamomum verum tree and the Cinnamomum cassia tree. However, both types are comprised of compounds and phytochemicals, such as cinnamaldehyde and eugenol. In fact, because of these natural ingredients cinnamon is so beneficial for our health.

Cinnamon essential oil has antibacterial, anti fungal, and antioxidant properties. It is also considered a powerful anti-inflammatory, due to its key antioxidant compounds, like cinnamic acid. Finally, it is known to calm dry skin, effectively alleviate aches, pains, and stiffness in the muscles and joints, address acne, rashes, and infections, enhance circulation, nourish the skin, slow the look of aging, and revive the skin tone.

Chamomile

Chamomilla Recutita Extract

A little history: The ancient Greeks and Romans widely used chamomile in medicine, drinks, and incense. In fact, the word chamomile, and the scientific name Chamaemelum, comes from the Greek word [χαμαίμηλον] (chamaimēlon), meaning “earth-apple”. To clarify, this word is derived from [χαμαί] (chamai)=(on the ground) + [μήλον] (mēlon)=(apple), because of the apple-like scent of the plant.

Chamomile is rich in various natural ingredients. The primary component of chamomile essential oil is bisabolol, which has a high panthenol concentration, meaning that it can effectively stimulate and promote the skin’s healing process. Likewise, flavonoids have powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiseptic properties, and boost the skin’s oxygen intake to aid cell renewal. Also, the essential oils chamomile contains, can improve dehydrated skin, while rejuvenating Vitamin B-complex helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Complexion becomes more luminous and healthy.

In brief, chamomile can easily be termed as the European equivalent of the Chinese power plant, Ginseng.

Free Radicals | Oxidative stress | Cellulite

Free Radicals

Mitochondria, the energy production factory of each cell, release free radicals into the human body, when they transform food into energy. Because they are generated during the production of energy using oxygen, they are also called free radicals of oxygen. Oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons. As electrons like to be in pairs, these atoms, called free radicals, search the body for other electrons to become a pair with. In order to balance their structure, they detach electrons from neighbouring molecules, transforming these molecules into free radicals, thus triggering a destructive chain reaction and damaging important cellular structures (proteins, cell membrane, DNA).

Substances that specifically generate free radicals include fried foods, alcohol, tobacco smoke, pesticides, air pollutants, and UV radiation. We age because of free radical damage over time. To explain it further, free radicals can damage DNA’s instructional code, causing our new cells to grow incorrectly, finally leading to ageing. However, free radicals are usually neutralised by antioxidant Vitamins C and E.

Oxidative stress

occurs when there are too many free radicals and too much cellular damage. Overall, oxidative stress is associated with the destruction of proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids.

However, our body produces some antioxidants on its own, but still an insufficient amount. In detail, oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants (too many free radicals and too few antioxidants).

To point out, free radicals caused by sun exposure can damage collagen, elastin, melanocytes, and moisture barrier. This results in wrinkles, looseness, unevenness in skin tone, black spots, and dry texture. Additionally, pollution damages the skin by increasing the production of free radicals, severe weather (dry air, wind, and cold) exhausts the skin from the necessary moisture, causing rough texture and fine lines. Finally, smoking increases the production of free radicals and may decrease the production of collagen and elastin. Smoking can also significantly reduce oxygen supply to cutaneous cells (the cells that help our body’s germ-fighting immune system).

Cellulite

It is caused by the progressive failure of the circulatory system under the skin, and marks the onset of extensive circulatory insufficiency throughout the body. One of the main factors contributing to this, is the excessive concentration of free radicals in the body. Free radicals, along with other highly active chemicals, are found almost everywhere in our bodies. The problem arises when they are concentrated in large quantities. Whether our body produces free radicals or receives them from nutrition or the environment, the result is always the same: cell walls weaken and DNA molecules are destroyed. Over time, this leads to degradation of circulation which is responsible for cellulite.

Geraniol

In short, Geraniol is a plant oil extracted from geraniums and lemongrass. In fact, it contains over 67 natural ingredients and compounds! Besides, it is a natural substance found in essential oils and it is used to improve the fragrance of cosmetic products. Due to its aroma, plants containing it have the natural ability to repel insects.

Ginger Essential Oil

or Ginger Root Oil

This essential oil is derived from the root of the Zingiber Officinale herb, better known as Ginger, and was named after the word [zingiberis] meaning [horn shaped]. In fact, it has been valued for thousands of years for its medicinal and culinary properties, particularly in ancient Chinese, Indian and Greek civilisations. With a warm, sweet, woody, and spicy aroma that has an energising effect, Ginger Oil has earned the nickname “The Oil of Empowerment” for the feeling of confidence that it is known to inspire.

Ginger Essential Oil is rich in Gingerol, a component that is mostly known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a natural ingredient that soothes redness, eliminates bacteria, inhibits the signs of skin damage and aging, and restores colour and radiance to a dull complexion. Additionally, it is effective in relieving muscle pains, as it improves blood circulation, while it can also reduce cellulite and symptoms of varicose veins.

Glycerin

In short, the natural form of glycerin, better known as vegetable glycerin or glycerol, is derived from plant-based oils, such as coconut oil or palm oil. It has a very light colour and is odourless. Plant glycerin is an organic compound that is water-soluble, absolutely safe and non-toxic, with amazing skin benefits!

In detail, glycerol is a skin-replenishing and restoring ingredient. It helps maintain our maintain skin’s moisture level, and achieves a healthy look and feel, while defending against dryness. Essentially, glycerin is a master at hydration, and works best when combined with other replenishing and emollient ingredients.

Vegetable glycerin helps balance the skin’s pH level, does not clog the pores or cause breakouts, as well as acne. Instead, it helps smooth fine lines and microscopic wrinkles, leaving skin smooth and silky. It also helps skin cells mature properly, thus assisting in the creation of the skin’s protective barrier. The anti-ageing properties of κέᾰρ® products are further enhanced by the presence of natural glycerin. Soft, youthful, and wrinkle-free skin should be definitely grateful to glycerin.

Glycine

Glycine Soja Oil

In short, it is a natural emollient and moisturiser. Especially rich in proteins, minerals, and antioxidant Vitamin E, it protects the skin from free radical damage, as well as the signs of aging, while stimulating cell renewal.

It is extracted from the seeds of red wine grapes and is loaded with natural ingredients, such as powerful antioxidants, Vitamins C, D & E, beta-carotene, polyphenols and essential fatty acids. Especially linoleic acid, has anti-inflammatory properties, doesn’t clog pores and is a commonly-used moisturiser for acne-prone and sensitive skin. When combined with natural Vitamin E it speeds up the healing process and minimises scars, fine lines and wrinkles. Although it is an oil, it doesn’t leave an oily residue, because it dries upon application and quickly penetrates the skin due to its light and thin consistency.

The powerful flavonoids found in grapeseed oil (especially proanthocyanidin), have strong antioxidant properties against free radicals. They also protect against the sun’s harsh UV rays, increase collagen production, leading to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The result is a healthy and youthful looking complexion. Finally, grape seed oil is an all-for oil, meaning that it is suitable for all skin types. It is equally used by those with sensitive and/or acne prone skin, as well as those with oily skin.

Sea buckthorn berry Oil

Hippophae Rhamnoides oil

The oil of seabuckthorn is extracted from the fleshy fruit or seeds of sea-buckthorn berries. According to the legend, the ancient Greeks used sea buckthorn leaves in racehorses diet. Its botanical name, Hippophae Rhamnoides, meaning “shiny horse”, refers to its ability to improve horses’ health and make their mane shiny and smooth.

The medicinal use of the plant and its fruit goes back just as far, with references found in ancient Greek texts. Herbal remedies obtained from the plant were originally used to treat skin diseases and digestive issues. Various parts of the plant and its fruits were also traditionally used to lower fever, reduce internal inflammation, and treat colds and coughs.

Overall, this berry is a multi-nutrient powerhouse!

Ultimately, our skin is healthier, smoother, softer, more even and radiant.

St. John’s wort Oil

Hypericum Perforatum Oil

This is a plant known for about 2,500 years for its healing properties. Initially, the use of this herb began in Greece, where the renowned physicians like Hippocrates, Dioscorides, Theophrastus and Galen, used it for treating several illnesses, especially sword wounds. Then, it got its common name from St. John the Baptist, whose birthday was June 24; the time the flowers usually bloom. Also, [wort] means [plant] in Old English.

St. John’s wort is packed with powerful flavonoids that nourish the skin. In fact, it has antibacterial, antioxidant, and antiviral properties that help transform stressed or broken skin by fighting free radicals (facial or body). This essential oil speeds up tissue recovery by stimulating circulation of oxygenated blood to skin cells to activate repair, boost hydration, promote elasticity and improve texture. Whether you have oily or dry complexion, this herb will do wonders to your skin.

Ivy Leaf Extract

The extract of Ivy leaf aids to eliminate excess fluid from the tissues, while improving the skin’s lymphatic drainage. Additionally, it effectively removes toxins and wastes, thus resulting in a younger looking complexion. Due to its anti-microbial and soothing properties, it is ideal for oily skin, because it normalises oiliness. Besides, it is also perfect for all skin types.

Overall, Ivy leaf extract moisturises, stimulates the formation of new cells, tightens, removes puffiness, tones the skin, and protects it from the harsh effects of the environment. Finally, it is also used to treat sunburns and fight cellulite.

Mandarin essential Oil

Citrus Reticulata Oil

Mandarin fruit was actually one of the core ancestral citrus groups. This means that it wasn’t derived from any other fruit and was, instead, an entire species of its own.

Mastic Oil

Pistacia Lentiscus Oil

A little history: Pistacia lentiscus (var. chia), commonly known as the mastic tree, is a variety of a Mediterranean shrub. The tree flourishes throughout the island of Chios, especially in the southern part, where the climate is warm and dry. ‘Tears’ of resin exuded from the tree, set and dry on exposure to air to form mastic. Mastic (or [mastiha] in greek)  is indeed a unique agricultural product, distinct for its place of origin and way of production, as well as its properties and multiple applications. It is exclusively a Greek product, and has been designated in 1997 by the European Union as a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) product.

In fact, mastic has been used for more than 2,500 years as a traditional Greek medicine for treating several conditions, such as stomach and peptic ulcers. In ancient Greece, Hippocrates, Galen, Dioscorides and Theophrastos often point to its beneficial properties. The great historian Herodotus (5th century BC) wrote that the Greeks used to chew the dried resinous liquid flowing from the mastic tree bark. For it was Chios mastic the first natural gum of the ancient world.

Dioscorides (1st century A.D), the distinguished pharmacologist of antiquity, lists all therapeutic and aesthetic properties of mastic known at the time in his “De Materia Medica” (About Medical Substances) treatise. He writes “It’s good for the stomach, and is added to teeth cleaning remedies and face creams, because it promotes skin radiance. When chewed, it helps scent breath and strengthens the gums”. As for mastic essential oil, he notes that “it cleanses the face and gives it the colour of health”.

Mastic (Pistacia lentiscus, var. chia) essential oil is produced by distilling the natural mastic with steam and its aroma is distinctive and woody, with a sense of freshness. It has been proved to have antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Equally, its natural ingredients cleanse and whiten the skin, while helping to tighten tissues. At the same time, by controlling the excretion of sebum, mastic oil significantly reduces problems associated with oily skin, such as a shiny appearance, acne or black spots. Because collagen production is boosted, frequent use helps soften lines and wrinkles, and ensures greater elasticity.

κέᾰρ® (Kear) products containing mastic, give our skin a youthful and healthy appearance, thus confirming ancient beliefs regarding the beneficial contribution of Chios resin to beauty.

Olive Fruit Oil

Olea Europaea Fruit Oil

Ancient Greek poet Homer used to call olive oil “liquid gold”, and it was, in fact, a common skin care ingredient used by the Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans.

Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract

Punica Granatum Extract

Ancient scriptures and artefacts from many religions and cultures have acknowledged the wonderful nutritional and medicinal properties of Pomegranate. Specifically in ancient Greece, pomegranate was used to treat diseases such as arthritis, circulatory and digestive problems, and infections. In the verses of the Odyssey, Homer mentions it as part of the gardens of Alcinous (probably in Sicily). Hippocrates acknowledged its medical value and described it as the “miraculous fruit”. As a matter of fact, the goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, linked her name to the origin of the pomegranate. According to the legend, she was the one who planted the first pomegranate tree in Cyprus.

Believed to have originated from Persia and Asia, Pomegranate is the orange-sized fruit of a deciduous shrub botanically called Punica granatum, which consists of a large number of soft, red, edible arils contained in a thick red outer covering. Pomegranates may have been domesticated as early as the 5th millennium BC, as they were one of the first fruit trees to be cultivated in the eastern Mediterranean region.

Especially rich in Vitamins C and B5, polyphenols, potassium and other minerals and nutrients pomegranates help maintain a healthy body. Pomegranate oil is extracted from the seeds of the fruit and has ample health and beauty benefits, often often attributed to the antioxidants and punicic acid it contains. These active natural ingredients help to protect our skin from the harmful free radicals. They also aid in regulating the production of sebum and aid hormonal imbalances in the body, consequently treating and preventing acne. In fact, this oil helps to treat skin problems like eczema, psoriasis and sunburns. Its potent healing qualities are helpful in repairing wounds, cuts, pimples, cracks and other break outs on the skin without leaving any scars or marks behind.

Pomegranate extract uses its positive effects to extend the life of fibroblasts, the cells responsible for producing collagen and elastin; in other words, the components that give strength and support to the skin. Especially, the punicic acid in pomegranate seed oil helps to increase the production, and reduce the breakdown of collagen fibers, thereby preventing the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging on the skin. Potent antioxidants like Vitamin C enhance skin elasticity, improve skin tone and balance the skin’s pH level. The result is a healthy, radiant and youthful looking skin.

Ultimately, the moisturizing effect of this nutrient-rich oil revitalises and rejuvenates the skin to help it look smooth, soft and flawless.

It was introduced in ancient Greece and Egypt as a natural antiseptic and preservative, while the name propolis was chosen for its meaning of “defender of the city”. Although it is a resin the bees make from tree bark, leaves, and many other ingredients, to seal the beehive from any intruder, it is also the most hygienic environment in nature. Surprisingly, propolis is a natural antibiotic, disinfectant, antiviral, anti-fungal, and antiseptic product. It also balances moisture, heals and soothes the skin, and provides a healthier, more vibrant complexion.

Rosemary Oil

Rosmarinus officinalis Oil

This is one of the most powerful natural ingredients, as well as of the most potent essential oils, deriving from rosemary. Despite its name, it is not a true oil, as it doesn’t contain fat. In ancient Greece, rosemary was considered a sacred herb, as it was a gift from Aphrodite. In fact, students wore rosemary wreaths durings exams and tests, as it helped them to concentrate and remember.

Overall, rosemary is a rich antioxidant having the same free radical fighting power as goji berry. Due to its high content in nutrients such as iron, calcium, vitamins, and antioxidants, it helps to stimulate cell renewal, promoting healthy healing, while replenishing skin moisture levels. Its key ingredients, such as esters, help control excess sebum. In fact, researchers have noted that it can help with both greasy hair and dandruff, and may even stimulate hair growth. 

Overall, rosemary essential oil improves freshness and elasticity, adds shine, and strengthens cell protection; and all this is because of its high antioxidant content.

 

Sage Leaf Water

Salvia Officinalis leaf water

A little history: Sage goes back in time many years.

Finally, sweet almond oil reduces moisture loss, by forming a barrier on the surface of the skin, keeping it soft and supple. κέᾰρ® (Kear) combines it with other plant-based essential oils for amazing results.

Vitamin C

Plant-derived Vitamin C is essential for the biosynthesis of collagen – which is the connective tissue of the skin – because it helps the skin improve its elasticity and firmness. Furthermore:

  • Vitamin C reduces the excessive accumulation of elastin in photo-aged skin.
  • It reduces pigment composition by contributing to the discoloration of age-related spots.
  • Our skin remains soft and smooth.
Vitamin E

Tocopherol

has antioxidant properties and protects the skin against free radicals, which are responsible for the formation of wrinkles. It equally helps treat skin irritations and relieves sunburn as it provides excellent hydration. The natural form of Vitamin E has been proven to be one of the leading natural ingredients in anti-ageing remedies, as it promotes a younger complexion by boosting collagen production, while reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

Plants rich in Vitamin E protect the lipid structures of the skin, as well as the proteins from oxidation. Due to its lipophilic nature, Vitamin E is fast-absorbed by the skin. Finally, the combination of Vitamin C and E provides protection against UV radiation.
