To finding out about Kiehl’s latest product: Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate.
Offering skin with its own daytime defense system to revitalize and help reduce the signs of skin fatigue, Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate features a specifically selected, highly concentrated blend of 100% natural origin ingredients including Ginger Root Essential Oils, Tamanu and Sunflower Seed Botanical Oils. Designed to reduce daily environmentally-induced oxidation, this non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, mineral oil free and paraben-free formula is lightweight, quickly absorbing and helps strengthen and protect the skin barrier for a smooth, fresh and healthy look all day long.
Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate contains botanical and essential oils involved in skin protection. Essential oils are highly concentrated substances extracted from plants by steam distillation. The term essential indicates that the oil carries the distinctive scent or essence of the plant. These oils are quickly absorbed by the skin surface and their main components help protect the skin from oxidative and environmental stress.
Some of their key ingredients are:
• Ginger Root Oil: Extensive in vitro studies have shown that this essential oil protects skin cells from UVA-induced lipid peroxidation and significantly reduces the release of pro-inflammatory markers . It is also known to stimulate dermis proteins such as Procollagen I, Collagen III and Elastin .
• Sunflower Seed Oil: This botanical oil has been shown to increase skin hydration, reduce the appearance of redness and improve skin smoothness. It also has demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties by decreasing in vitro release of pro-inflammatory markers. In addition, in vitro studies have revealed that Sunflower Seed Oil stimulates receptors involved in skin barrier lipids synthesis and corneocyte’s maturation.
• Tamanu Oil: This botanical oil brings emollient properties to lock moisture in the skin. In addition, due to its composition rich in lipids such as linoleic acid that are important in healthy looking skin, it provides protecting properties
Botanical oils contain fatty acids and are obtained from plants. When extracted by cold press, botanical oils contain a significant amount of proteins and lipo-soluable vitamins (like Vitamin E and A). In addition, studies have shown the role of Botanical Oils to “wrap” skin and provide a “cushion”, so that skin can maintain its proper hydration levels. This is especially beneficial to skin during the day when its lipid function is comprised due to environmental aggressors.
The product sounds amazing! Can’t wait to try it! Thanks Kiehl’s for the event invite!
