Contains concentrated nutrients for the skin, without any water. Substances used by Judean Desert plants, to protect themselves against dehydration and harsh radiation, are used in this serum for nurturing healthy and refreshed skin. A major ingredient is the famous Helichrysum italicum (Everlasting) essential oil, from organic cultivation in the Yattir mountains.
This essential oil cultivated in this region, is particularly rich in neryl acetate and gamma curcumene, similarly to the essential oil obtained from cultivation in Corsica, sold for thousands of dollars per pound (A cheaper Helichrysum italicum oil is obtained from wildcrafted herbs in Eastern Europe, is richer in alpha-pinene, which is a very common ingredient in many essential oils). Neryl acetate has been patented for enhancing collagen production inside skin.
The olive oil in which Helichrysum italicum and other herbs are macerated, is obtained from cultivation in the Negev hills, with irrigation with brackish water, and is therefore rich with phytosteroids.
The serum also contains a large amount of Jojoba oil, from cultivation in the Western Negev. Jojoba oil is actually a wax, which contains ingredients very similar to facial sebum, and is therefore very skin penetrating and moisturizing. Additionally, it is rich with vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant and anti-aging ingredient. (It is further enriched by vitamin E from wheat germ oil).
Avocado kernel oil: highly penetrating, helps moisturize wrinkled skin and render it more flexible. In mice, it was shown to promote wound healing, by enhancing collagen density and skin strength.
This serum is also rich with tannins-rich plant, which enhance skin tone: cypress, wormwood, myrtle.
Geranium and ylang essential oils: contain ingredients which help balance sebum secretions.
Extracts in olive oil, of plants cultivated on the desert frontier: very rich in sterols, which help slow down skin aging.
