EMULSIONS FOR THE SKIN aka LOTIONS AND CREAMS

JINJA lotions and creams are natural and organic emulsions which don’t contain synthetic emulsifiers or nasty additives. Fortunately mother nature has provided us with a bounty of amazing protecting, nourishing, healing and regenerating properties found in the natural oils, butters, waxes, hydrosols and tinctures derived from various plants, herbs and flowers. JINJA creams are rich and nourishing, leaving skin soft and velvety. A little goes a long way.

All of you have used an emulsion at some stage of your life, this can be as simple as a salad dressing or as complicated as an expensive cream that you apply to your skin.

To create a very simple emulsion you need only three ingredients, water, oil and an emulsifier. There are basically two kinds of emulsions, a water in oil (W/O) or an oil in water (O/W) emulsion. The easiest way for you to understand the difference between the two of them is milk and cream. Milk is a oil in water emulsion where the oil droplets are dispersed into the water droplets. Cream is a water in oil emulsion where the water droplets are dispersed into the oil.

In the early days of skin care, ladies used to use cold cream to remove makeup and to moisturize their skin. This was typically a thick, greasy water in oil emulsion. Skin care has come a very long way since then with the use of sophisticated emulsifiers, silks, silicones and a vast array of additives that produce light, textured lotions or silky, rich creams, all of which nourish and nurture the skin without being heavy and greasy.

Plant oils chosen for their natural SPF and zinc oxide in Velvet Touch Day Cream, moisturize and protect your skin from the damaging effects of everyday pollutants and harmful UV exposure. Rich in vitamins, minerals, squalene and lipids, Velvet Touch deeply penetrates the skin accelerating new cell growth, encouraging collagen and elastin production. Natural retinoic acid in organic Rosehip oil is an excellent tissue regenerator, repairing photo damaged skin and reducing wrinkles, scars and pigmentation.

Regenerative Night Cream is a highly nutritious cream that works hard to repair, restore and deeply nourish the skin while you sleep. Helichrysum, Frankincense and Myrrh are some of the most ancient and valuable healing substances which work synergistically with carefully selected carrier oils, restoring substance to the skin, improving skin tone, firmness and elasticity. Pomegranate oil delivers powerful antioxidants and beneficial phytoestrogens which promotes regeneration of the epidermis and offers protection from skin cancer.

Enjoy the benefits of rich, nourishing JINJA creams. Massage a little cream into clean, damp skin. When the cream is fully absorbed, the skin is left feeling soft and velvety with a delicate fragrance.
