Elemente USA Lavender Silky Facial Lotion

I am so lucky I am working in a company where I learn a lot of things about health, wellness and beauty. Lucky because I was able to try new products even before it reaches the Philippine market. For more than a year now, I am handling Elemente USA line, a skin care and cosmetics brand under E. Excel International. And honestly, I am loving the products, bias aside. I am not reviewing these products for my company’s sake. But I am doing this because I am satisfied with the results of the products and the benefits it gives to me, especially to my skin.

Since I know that very few ones know about this line, I might as well give a background on Elemente USA. Elemente USA as I have said, is a skin care and cosmetics line under the E.Excel International umbrella. E. Excel is originally a manufacturer of nutritionally superior herbal foods. All its products are manufactured upon the principles of what we call “Nutritional Immunology”. It is the relationship of the food we eat to our immune system. Its founder, Dr. Jau Fei Chen later ventured into skin care and cosmetic products that still embody the whole Nutritional Immunology principles. Thus, the birth of Elemente USA. All Elemente USA products contains Oxyginberry Complex, a patented ingredient that works in synergy to maintain a healthy, glowing skin. Oxyginberry Complex is composed of six potent ingredients:

Ginseng Berry. When applied topically, it helps increase hydration and elasticity of the skin while delaying signs of premature aging.

Cactus Fruit. An excellent source of skin nourishing nutrients such as riboflavin, vitamin A, B1, D3 and B12. Also plays a significant role in promoting cell repair and renewal.

Cactus. Known to have detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties, which speeds up wound healing and improves the appearance of scars. When applied to the skin, it acts as a moisturizer and helps prevent water loss from the stratum corneum layer of the skin.

Grape Seed. A potent source of OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidin), a very strong antioxidant that has 20 times more antioxidant activity than Vitamin C and has 50 times more antioxidant activity than Vitamin E. It is very effective in protecting cells against DNA damage.

Rose. Enhances beauty by lightening pigmentation for a smoother, fairer complexion. It also has high concentration of antioxidants and nutrients such as ascorbic acid, niacin, flavonoids and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, E & K. It also contains 50 times more vitamin C than lemon, which enhances the body’s ability to produce collagen.

Seaweed has amazing skin rejuvenation properties and has the ability to help increase the production of integrin, a protein that helps in cell regeneration, skin repair, skin elasticity and firmness. It acts as an emollient by restoring moisture to the skin. It also has fucoidan, which promotes better blood circulation and excretion of toxins from
the skin. Its molecular weight is extremely small, which enables the nutrients to penetrate the skin easily.

I will discuss more of Oxyginberry Complex in my next posts. I do not want to put all of you into info-overload mode.

This year, Elemente USA launches another interesting series, The Lavender Essentials Series launched at SMX Convention Center last October 10, 2009. The line is composed of Lavender Essence, Lavender Essence Shower Gel, Lavender Silky Facial Lotion and Lavender Body Treatment Lotion. Again, I do not want to put all of you into info-overload mode, so I will discuss my most favorite product for the meantime – Lavender Silky Facial Lotion.

According to the official description I got from the international office, Lavender Silky Facial Lotion is formulated for delicate skin. It is rich in natural botanical essences and lavender essences to soothe the skin. Its lightweight texture makes it especially refreshing to apply in hot weather. Suitable for all skin types and loved by both men and women.
I fell in-love immediately with this product when my boss let me try it for the first time. It is dry-touch, and has smooth, silky finish. The scent is very uplifting as I love Lavender scents. It is ok to use even if you have oily skin. It works as a base for your makeup or you can set it with powder for that fresh no make-up look. I love using this when I want my skin to rest from all the hazardous makeups I’ve been using during workdays. The only con I see with this product is that it does not have SPF content. So I still use Elemente USA’s Hydro Protective Sunscreen with SPF 30 or the sunblock gel I got from my derma before this one if I am about to go outdoors. Also, if you have dry skin, better use a separate moisturizer prior to using this one. It also brightens your skin instantly as its molecular weight is so tiny that it can penetrate your skin immediately, thus giving visible results.
Watch out for my reviews on the other Elemente products. I am having a hard time choosing which one to write about next because I love most of them. Again, bias aside. I just write those products that I really use and love.
