Monalinda Skincare Ingredients
For Monalinda Skincare’s key Ingredients,
Margaret looks into nature, which is where many of the world’s most effective pharmaceuticals were first discovered. Monalinda’s key ingredients feature Stabilised VitaminC, which is clinically proven to treat and prevent changes associated with photoageing. VitaminC is also an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation. Margaret’s other star ingredient is Ovine Placenta Extract. The active polypeptides found in the placenta have been identified as helping with the antiaging and regeneration. When VitaminC and Ovine Placenta Extract are used together, you’re getting a double-hit of treatment for the signs of aging.
Queen of the Maori medicinal herbs, Kawakawa is a native New Zealand shrub of the pepper family that has medicinal properties. In particular, recent studies have shown that kawakawa leaf extract is an effective anti-inflammatory.
New Zealand Manuka Honey has been scientifically recognised for its anti-microbial and wound healing properties. It also reduces inflammation and assists with rapid tissue repair. What’s more, Manuka Honey works as a humectant, which means it helps to draw moisture into the skin to improve hydration.
Kojic Acid helps to improve the colouration of skin by blocking an amino acid called tyrosine, which reduces melanin production. Melanin is the naturally-occurring pigment responsible for age spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation and age-related skin darkening.
Rose Water has soothing, anti-inflammatory properties that help with common skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea.
Rose Water has also been shown to inhibit elastase and collagenase, enzymes that damage skin by digesting elastin and collagen.
There is considerable evidence to suggest that VitaminC is a potent antioxidant that helps to treat and prevent changes associated with photo-ageing (UV damage). It is also essential for collagen production and can be used for the treatment of hyperpigmentation. In addition, VitaminC has powerful anti-inflammatory activity and promotes skin healing.
Ovine Sheep Placenta Extract
Ovine Placenta Extract contains a high level of specialised cell-growth peptides, antioxidants and bioactive cytokines. Cell-growth peptides and cytokines have been studied extensively. They are known to directly affect collagen production. Antioxidants are a proven treatment for sun-damaged skin, because they neutralise free radicals that form in the skin after UV exposure.
Avocado Oil is rich in natural fatty acids, proteins and minerals, as well as VitaminA, D and E. Avocado Oil also contains a substance called sterolin, which helps with age spots and sun damage.
