Gerlinde's story behind this face balm:
I formulated this product for all the women who can relate to the same skin problems that I have: very dry, menopausal, sensitive skin.
My own hyper sensitive skin set the highest benchmark for this product and months of trial and error took me through quite some amounts of different combinations of botanical ingredients.
The criteria: The balm had to glide on easily, mustn't be too greasy, had to give the skin a nice healthy glow, soften, moisturis throughout the day and be rich enough as a night moisturiser too, on top of this it had to encourage collagen production and smell nice. It all had to be 'just so'.
One morning in January, I took one of my new formulations, a freshly set balm out of the lab fridge and tried it straight away on my cleansed skin. Oh, I can’t tell you how over the moon I was that this lovely golden balm turned out to be my winner! The silky softness of the balm between my fingers, how it applied and absorbed, the lovely smell and how happy my skin was even in the late afternoon, where I usually could feel my skin tightening, was amazing!
One happy girl and so thrilled to have come up with a skin care product for my customers’ delicate skin to enjoy! Since my 'Eureka' moment in January this product had been trialled by a number of women (and men!) and the feedback is just great!

Jojoba Oil, traditionally held in high regard by Native Americans in the Sonora desert, is as a vital ingredient in this formulation. It will sink rapidly into your skin for extra moisture, allowing your skin to breathe, and can significantly soften your skin by reducing transepidermal water loss.

Herbalists value Calendula as a healer and it has been widely used as a remedy since ancient times. It is an infusion of marigold flowers and has been applied topically in popular medicine for slow healing wounds, bed sores, bruises, cuts, scratches, inflammations, eczema, ulcers and burns. Calendula is also recognised as an effective astringent and therefore has a tightening effect on the skin.
