Elderflower Skin Firming Cream .5 oz
The relatively short bloom time of the elderflower, combined with its preference to grow in swamps, make the bounty of this plant rather difficult to harvest. However, the effort is well worth it! Many are familiar with the amazing benefits of the flowers and berries as a wellness tonic to help boost the immune system, and the gentle astringency of the flowers is also amazing for skin.
Elderflower has anti-inflammatory properties and contains vitamins, flavonoids and quercetin – naturally occurring elements that have been shown to promote blood circulation and are packed with vitamins A, B, C, and E. These are excellent for making the skin firmer, improving the complexion, and evening out skin tone.
The elderflowers for this small batch were harvested in a sustainable manner, leaving enough flowers to develop into berries – an important source of food for birds and other wildlife. Elderflowers are becoming more popular as an ingredient for cosmetic products, but be aware that in many of these “high-end” products, there is no guarantee of the purity of the source, or that the plant was harvested in an ethical and sustainable manner.
This is a lightweight cream and a lot goes a long way when applied to damp, clean face.
