Jasmine & Evening Primrose: Restore Balance to your Skin and Soul this Spring

Mar 02, 2022Gemma McGoldrick

Our NEW Seasonals Line Moisturiser is here! The last in our collection of 7 Seasonal Moisturisers, blended with targeted ingredients to give your skin just what it needs during each season.

Our latest addition to the Seasonals Line family? Jasmine & Evening Primrose. Does it smell as glorious as it sounds? It most certainly does. And most importantly, it has ingredients to help restore balance to your skin (and soul!) this Spring.

With the Original Moisturiser at its core, our Jasmine & Evening Primrose Moisturiser uses targeted ingredients to breathe life into spring skin and lift the soul after a harsh winter. This weightless cream rebalances the skin, helping it to retain moisture and build up its resilience to the changing climate and environment.

Blended with skin-balancing Evening Primrose Oil, antioxidant Peach Flower Extract and Oat Kernel Oil, this cream is packed full of essential fatty acids that support the skin’s barrier function and leaves skin silky smooth. Harnessing intoxicating Jasmine oil and Ylang Ylang it has a bewitching, liberating scent, reminiscent of spring itself. Blended with other notes of Lemon, Geranium, Chamomile, Petitgrain and Sage, it's like enjoying a spring breeze through a herb garden.

Spring Skin Concerns

At the beginning of spring, our skin is at its driest and most unstable. It has a weakened skin barrier function so is less able to retain as much moisture and protect itself from the environment, including allergens like pollen. As the weather gets warmer and humidity levels increase, our skin has to learn to adapt yet again. In order to best support our struggling skin, we need to help it regain balance, retain moisture and build up its resilience to the changing climate and environment.

Our Key Ingredients

So what targeted ingredients have we chosen for Jasmine & Evening Primrose and why?

Our first star ingredient is Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil. This oil, rich in linoleic acid and y-linolenic acid, dates back centuries when it was used by medieval practitioners and herbalists to treat many common ailments. In skincare, it helps to prevent dryness and leads to soft, firm and healthy skin. It also helps the skin retain moisture and prevent water loss.

Our second star ingredient is Prunus Persica (Peach) Flower Extract. This skin-conditioning extract helps moisturise the skin, smooth its texture and keep it healthy, by protecting against external allergens such as pollen and air pollution.

The final star ingredient is one that’s blended into many of our products - Oat Kernel Oil, also known as Avena Sativa. Amino-rich, it helps support the moisture barrier function of the skin, and rich in antioxidant vitamin E and tocotrienols, it protects the skin from external stimuli and dryness.

The Spring-like scent is a blend of Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Oil and Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower Oil. Native to India, Jasmine (like the Evening primrose) blooms at night. In Egypt and Morocco it is picked at night and holds a delicate, gardenia-like fresh scent and is said to boost positivity and calm the emotions. As well as being a famous floral fragrance note in perfumery, it is also good for oily and sensitive skin, and is said to help reduce stretch marks.

Ylang-ylang is extracted from the flowers of this evergreen tree and is known for its heady sweet floral scent, similar to jasmine. It also helps to balance oil production in the skin and keep it healthy.

The texture of our latest cream is moving towards the lighter texture of Japanese Citrus, and away from our slightly richer Winter creams. As always, it’s beautifully fast-absorbing and moisturising. We hope you like this new addition to our Seasonals Line family!
