-BIRCH SAV, The best ingredient in substitution of water, in natural cosmetic formulations-
It is increasingly common to find brands on the market that, in addition to being committed to the environment, eliminate water from their formulations, replacing it with natural ingredients that give the product real added value.
As you know, almost always when you look at the INCI of the product (list of ingredients in order of quantity it occupies in the formulation), it is not surprising that the first ingredient on the list is water, right?.
There are also many formulas that substantially improve the quality of the product, using water "with more cache" so to speak, even with important benefits, be it thermal water, spring water, purified water ... They contain vitamins, minerals and trace elements beneficial to our skin.
However, if we really want to enjoy the benefits of a really good natural cosmetic product, we recommend that you try treatments that eliminate water from their formulations as the main ingredient, and replace it with botanical extracts and ingredients that come directly from plants.
In this case we are going to talk about the benefits of using Birch Sap as a substitute for water in certain natural cosmetic formulations.
First of all, it is good to always check, before using a cosmetic, that the use of certain ingredients used in its formulation come from a responsible and sustained extraction, committed to the environment. Take advantage of what nature provides us without harming or exploiting the resources that provide so many benefits in our lives.
Birch sap is the perfect natural ingredient for your skin to be cared for, to look good. Looking good, the skin looks radiant, flawless. With its habitual use, redness is combated. It is anti-inflammatory. It has firming capacity, being fully indicated in cases of flaccidity. It is very delicate, being suitable for the most sensitive skin.
Birch sap is collected mainly in spring, mainly in countries with cold and extreme climates. It is an antioxidant concentrate, full of minerals and vitamins, which strengthens, both in its internal intake and in its external application. Each and every bioactive substance in the sap, such as enzymes, proteins and amino acids, strengthens skin cells, protects them and, importantly, rejuvenates them. Birch sap is a recognized anti-aging elixir among the Nordics. In addition, it has a molecular size that allows its absorption quickly and reaches the deepest layers of the skin, leaving a dry and velvety touch. As you can see, an exceptional ingredient compared to the traditional use of water in cosmetic formulations.
Birch sap is a concentrate of vitamins B3, B5, B12, A and C that equalize skin tone, heal and prevent and attenuate blemishes. Slows down the aging process of cells and visibly attenuates deeper wrinkles. Oxygenates, improves microcirculation and promotes a healthy, shiny, healthy complexion. In turn, birch sap repairs damage caused by solar radiation and photoaging and balances sebum production, thus keeping the skin in perfect condition, without excess shine, in perfect comfort and well-being.

-ACMELLA OLERACEA, the most natural alternative to Botox-
From now on, when you are looking for a firming cream or a tensor treatment that provides tissues firmness, look at the INCI and check if, among its ingredients, is Acmella Oleracea. Also called Paracress or herb of the teeth (used since ancient times to calm the pain of teeth), among its many properties is to provide our face with an instant “botox effect”. Obviously, we will not find in our natural treatment the same effect as if we were injected with botulinum toxin, but to be able to find, today, ingredients in the formulations of creams that are 100% natural and that tense, elevate and reaffirm the tissues, providing the desired "botox like" effect, it is already an important step.
Among the key benefits that we will find with the application of Acmella on the skin of our face, neck and cleavage, are: Decrease in size and appearance of wrinkles, smoothness of the skin, tensor effect, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial capacity, antioxidant, Healing and promoting a substantial improvement in the health of the veins and capillaries of the face.
We can find several and diverse natural ingredients with tensor effects, but perhaps none, this one we are talking about today has the title of "natural alternative to botox". Acmella, applied topically, reduces muscle tensions due to its calming effect on our tissues, reduces also various types of facial wrinkles caused by the tension and contraction of our muscles. Acmella is a natural muscle relaxant, and by many civilizations it was used to "numb" pains, such as toothaches, for its analgesic ability. All this is due to its main active principle, "spilanthol", which would get tense and "paralyze" (always using the term figuratively, since we mean that it would keep the wrinkle smooth and without tension) the facial muscles , reducing the size and appearance of wrinkles and relaxing the skin of our face. Let's say that it would keep the contractions of our skin muscles under control and our wrinkles with a more attenuated appearance and less deep and marked.
The most visible and immediate effect when applying Acmella topically is the visible softness in the skin texture. Results obtained from the first application. Currently, laboratories and large companies are trying to develop patents to use Acmella (synthetic version, of course) as a safe alternative to Botox. But Acmella is natural, and, as you know, the natural, living beings, as found in nature, cannot be patented.
This is why fortunately we can enjoy super powerful natural active ingredients with the best anti-aging skincare. Our Ami Iyök Skin Warrior Ampoules are the ideal example. Click below and find out more about its wonderful effects.

The majority of people interested in natural and ecological cosmetics, and a healthier lifestyle, it would not be necessary to describe the innumerable properties that rosehip oil gives us skin. Of all is well known its use to attenuate spots, blur wrinkles, maintain a healthy tone and appearance of the skin, combat marks and imperfections, fight against photoaging and improve the firmness ... We could describe a very long list with all the good who can give us It is clear that it is an indispensable that we should always have on hand, and never stop using it. Of course, you always have to check, to make sure you get the most effectiveness possible, first, that it is an oil entirely from organic farming, and second, that its extraction methods are cold and with systems fully specialized in maintaining all the properties of this oil intact, since it is packaged until the end of the months of suitable consumption once the container is opened. Not all rosehip oils are the same ... It's good to always read the labels. There are many products on the market that, once packaged, are totally "inert" in active principles and properties since the methods of cultivation, handling and production literally "kill" the active principles of the treatment or, worse, can be adulterated. For that reason, do not play it when you buy an oil, and more if it will be like rosehip, which is supposed to be a must of beauty that you will always have at home. Remember also that oils have a much higher skin penetration rate than serums! That is why, as we always recommend in Biosplendor, watch what you put on! You can get a treatment that works wonders if you choose well or, on the contrary, destroy the largest organ that we have in our body! And not only that, remember that everything we apply always always conditions to a greater or lesser extent to our entire system. Let's take care!.
But the main reason for our article is not based mainly on advice. As we started at the beginning, articles about how wonderful the rosehip can be for our skin are many. What we want this time is to dissect all those components that your oil gives us, and, in turn, examine each and every one of the properties they have on our skin.

We now describe the main composition of rosehip oil:
Almost entirely, it is composed of polyunsaturated fatty acids:
⁃Omega 6 (Linoleic) and Omega 3 (Linolenic).
Of the percentage of unsaturated, we find:
⁃ Omega 9
Finally, the lowest proportion of fatty acids is saturated as:
⁃ Esterharic Acid
⁃ Palmitic acid
⁃ Eicosanoic acid
In addition, it contains:
⁃ Vitamin A
⁃ Vitamin C
