Nature Meets Science.
For centuries, African people have used powerful botanicals as traditional healing elixirs. Terres d’Afrique has studied how people use these relatively unknown ingredients. The curative and restorative power of many African plants is legendary for a reason. They work. In crafting our products, we have combined these ingredients in potent formulations that maximise their skin care benefits; the culmination of years of exploration, field research and laboratory development.
With Aloe Ferox & Menthol
This easily absorbed gel provides intense moisture and invigorates your entire body. Suitable for all skin type, it is ideal for after sun or invigorating treatments. It is used in Terres d’ Afrique Fusion Hammam.
Since aloe is approximately 99% water it penetrates through the surface of the skin (stratum corneum) to the vascular dermal area thus hydrating the skin. Concurrently, the gel forms a cover to prevent the escape of moisture in the skin. Aloe gel increases the penetration of the skin by water hydration, occlusiveness (closes passage) and by increasing compound solubility.
Aloe ferox contains high concentrations of essential amino acids, polysaccharides and glycoproteins, which stimulate new skin growth and are an essential part of the synthesis of collagen by fibroblasts in the dermis. They also speed the healing process and possess anti-inflammatory properties.
The cooling effect in this body gel is created by menthol crystals, peppermint, eucalyptus and cypress essential oils. Peppermint & menthol: Menthol is the main active ingredient in peppermint and has a soothing and cooling effect on skin irritations.
This essential oil is very helpful for conditions such as arthritis, rheumatic conditions and everyday aches and pains due to its anti-inflammatory, stimulating and warming action.
