What is Patchouli and why is everyone talking about it? Let's explore this fascinating ingredient in skin care and find out if it is worth the hype (spoiler alert - it is!). Our Anti-aging serum is packed with this secret ingredient for a good reason!
Patchouli (pach-ou-li), a fragrant plant renowned for its captivating aroma and rejuvenating effects on the skin, has a long-standing history in ayurveda throughout Asia. With its earthy - woody undertones, this aromatic herb possesses remarkable properties that promote skin regeneration and can make a difference in anti-aging.
Patchouli is filled with the goodness of antioxidants and serves as a valuable ally in preserving a youthful complexion. These are best used in anti aging serum and its potent qualities have made it an integral part of skincare routines, cherished for its ability to nourish and revitalize the skin. Also, did you know that Patchouli - the name, is derived from Green(Patcha) and Leaf (Ilai)?
Patchouli offers a unique and exclusive extract that has been carefully developed to specifically activate cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2) in the skin. This innovative formulation is globally compliant and does not rely on any controversial cannabis derivatives.
In the intricate world of skin health, there exists a remarkable system called the Endocannabinoid system (ECS). Surprisingly, our skin can produce its endocannabinoid molecules, which are released in precise amounts according to the skin's needs for optimal health. These molecules play a vital role by interacting with various cell types in the skin, influencing their physiological functions.
The secret behind this remarkable process lies in the activation of receptors present in the skin, with CB1 and CB2 being the most widely distributed receptors across all cell types. When these receptors are activated by endocannabinoids, they orchestrate the regulation and restoration of skin balance, enabling the skin to function at its best.
However, disruptions in skin function can occur due to a variety of factors, including skin aging, external stressors, repeated inflammation, or injury. In such cases, the natural release of these beneficial endocannabinoid molecules may be hindered. Consequently, the delicate balance of the skin becomes compromised.
This is where the activation of the ECS in the skin comes into play. By stimulating the ECS, we can restore harmony and equilibrium to the skin. This restoration process, known as homeostasis, plays a crucial role in rejuvenating the skin and promoting its normal functioning.
Patchouli is known for its ability to stimulate skin cell regeneration, promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells. This can help improve the overall appearance and texture of the skin, making it look more youthful and radiant.
Patchouli is rich in antioxidants, which help combat free radicals and oxidative stress. These properties can help reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, giving the skin a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Patchouli has natural anti-inflammatory properties that can help calm and soothe the skin. It can be beneficial for individuals with skin conditions like acne, eczema, or dermatitis, as it may help reduce redness, irritation, and inflammation.
In addition to its skincare benefits, the distinct and captivating aroma of Patchouli provides aromatherapeutic effects. It is known to have a grounding and calming effect, helping to reduce stress and anxiety, which can indirectly benefit the skin by minimizing stress-related skin issues.
Patchouli has excellent moisturizing properties, it helps hydrate the skin and restore its natural moisture balance. This can be especially beneficial for dry or dehydrated skin, leaving it feeling nourished and supple.
