Shea Brand’s new line of facial care products is made from all-natural, powerful plant ingredients.
If you’ve been following Shea Brand for a while, then you know about our reverence for plants. The natural world has so much potential to help our bodies and minds deal with our modern, human lives. So if you are asking ‘how can plants help my skin?’ we want to break it down for you, so you can make informed decisions about what goes on your body.
The Electric Daisy + CBD trio of facial care products is designed to keep your skin resilient and full of vitality, while keeping your routine simple and 100% natural. The stars of the show in these three natural skincare products are Electric Daisy and CBD, two plants that have been used holistically for generations. We’ve combined them with a blend of active plant ingredients that will work to cleanse, hydrate, soothe, and regenerate your skin. But how exactly do these plants work??
Keep reading for the details on Electric Daisy, CBD, and the most powerful plant ingredients for your skin:
Electric Daisy – This medicinal flower has been used traditionally as an oral medicine because it produces a strong tingling or numbing sensation when eaten. When added to skincare, Electric Daisy produces a powerful tightening effect. It actively prevents skin from creating extra melanin, which helps to reduce and prevent dark spots or hyper pigmentation. Electric Daisy is anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, which makes it great for calming irritation, rejuvenating dead or damaged skin, improving collagen, and makes skin appear both smoother and brighter.
Cannabidiol (CBD) – You may already know about CBD’s therapeutic effects on the mind but did you know that CBD is excellent for your skin, too? With serious anti-inflammatory properties, CBD works to reduce redness and swelling. By reducing inflammation in your skin, CBD helps to keep skin cells healthy and resilient and improves blood flow, which is vital to regenerating new skin cells. CBD is also antibacterial and anti-fungal and therefore a great tool for keeping acne or small wounds clear of infection.
The ingredients in Electric Daisy + CBD Brightening Exfoliant:
Volcanic ash – This fine exfoliator is beloved in the skincare industry for its cleansing and detoxifying properties. Volcanic ash pulls impurities from your pores without stripping your skin of vital oils.
Olive oil – This simple yet powerful ingredient is highly hydrating and balancing. Olive oil hydrates and balances your skin. It is also an antioxidant, fighting free radicals and smoothing out fine lines. There’s a reason that Italian grandmothers put olive oil all over their bodies!
Neem seed oil – High in essential fatty acids, which reduce and prevent acne by balancing oil production in your skin. Neem oil deeply moisturizes and repairs damaged skin cells.
White willow bark – This extract is a powerful anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antioxidant. It naturally exfoliates, heals your skin, and gently cleanses. This ingredient is great for fighting acne and brightening skin tone.
The ingredients in Electric Daisy + CBD Regenerative Day Serum:
Cucumber fruit extract – Sometimes the best ingredients for your skin are also great for eating. Cucumbers are highly hydrating and anti-inflammatory, which is great for repairing dry and damaged skin, calming irritation (we love using our Cucumber Hydrosol to cool a sunburn!), and giving your face a plump, smooth appearance.
Pisum Sativum Peptide or pea peptides – This vegetable-derived peptide serum has essential fatty acids, which help to moisturize and balance your skin. Pea peptides are also a rich source of lysine, which promotes collagen production. They work to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, firm skin, and leave your skin feeling silky smooth.
The ingredients in Electric Daisy + CBD Enzyme Face Mask:
Organic reishi mushroom extract – Reishi mushrooms are known as the “mushroom of immortality” and are adaptogenic, meaning that they help to balance your systems–including your skin. Reishi soaks deep into the skin, providing hydration and modulating inflammation. These mushrooms are great for sensitive, itchy, dry, or inflamed skin. Reishi is also highly antioxidant and therefore helpful for healing skin cells and keeping skin resilient.
Organic rosehip seed oil – High in antioxidants and Omega 3&6 fatty acids which are essential to skin health. Rosehip oil hydrates skin, calms inflammation, and clears up acne by balancing oil production. It also repairs damaged skin and can help with hyper pigmentation, scars, acne, or dry and tired skin.
Tamanu seed oil – This plant-based oil facilitates the growth of new skin cells and will leave your face feeling soft and smooth. It is high in Omega fatty acids which balance your skin’s natural oil production and prevent acne. It also hydrates skin, soothing inflammation, and diminishes dark spots, scars, or stretch marks.
