INGREDIENT PROFILES

  • Certified Organic Shea Butter - is extracted from the nuts of the African Karite Tree using traditional extraction methods without the use of hexane, chemical pesticides, or preservatives to retain its vital nutrients. It is rich in vitamin A and E, plant sterols, vitamins and softens, protects against drying and nourishes the skin. It prevents moisture loss, protects against the elements and helps renew cracked, aged and damaged skin and can help with soreness, skin rashes and itching, acne, sunburn, scars.
  • Herbalists value Calendula as a healer and it has been widely used as a remedy since ancient times. It is an infusion of Marigold flowers and has been applied topically in popular medicine for slow healing wounds, bed sores, bruises, cuts, scratches, inflammations, eczema, ulcers and burns. Calendula is also recognised as an effective astringent and therefore has a tightening effect on the skin.
  • Evening Primrose is a plant native to North America but it grows in Europe and parts of the Southern hemisphere as well. It has yellow flowers that bloom in the evening. It was used by the North American Indian medicine men to make an infusion for healing wounds, gastrointestinal complaints and sore throats.
    Where evening primrose oil is pressed from the seeds of Oenothera biennis, it is important to note that it is an exceptionally fine textured oil which is easily absorbed, with high levels of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) and also antioxidant Phytosterols. 
    Numerous clinical studies are available that detail the effectiveness on atopic dermatitis
    Used cosmetically or topically in general, Evening Primrose Carrier Oil exhibits superb soothing and moisturising properties, and it is gentle enough for use on sensitive and prematurely ageing skin. It is reputed to not only moisturise but to also enhance elasticity as well as the texture of flaking or peeling skin, making it an ideal ingredient for mature skin. With astringent and softening properties, it promotes the look of a healthy, clear, rejuvenated complexion with enhanced radiance. By addressing roughness, wrinkles, redness, dryness, and irritation, it is reputed to soothe skin afflicted with acne, allergies, eczema, and psoriasis. 
    Today, people are also using evening primrose oil dietary supplements for eczema (a condition involving red, swollen, itchy skin, sometimes caused by allergies), rheumatoid arthritis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), breast pain, menopause symptoms, and other conditions.
    HISTORY OF EVENING PRIMROSE OIL USAGE
    Europe: Known to be regal and noble enough for Kings and Queen’s to use in medicinal applications, Evening Primrose is famously referred to as the ‘King’s Cure-All.’ Historically, in Europe, various parts of the Evening Primrose botanical – such as its seeds, fresh flowers, leaves, and roots – as well as its essential fatty acid were used in medicinal applications to address symptoms of acne, asthma, diabetes, eczema, fatigue, loss of libido and impotence, menstruation and menopause, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, poor memory, and rheumatism.
    Asia: In Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine, the plant’s and its oil’s therapeutic properties were revered and used to regulate and address issues associated with circulation, inflammation, the female reproductive system and the respiratory and nervous systems.
    America: Among various Native American groups and in communities of early settlers, the plant’s various parts were used to make infusions, poultices, and topical pastes intended to address wounds. For some tribes, the plant’s roots even made up part of their staple diet. Its benefits were also used to support nutrition and nourishment as well as to soothe discomforts such as sore throats, stomach aches, gastrointestinal problems, and hemorrhoids.
    Since the 17th century, Evening Primrose Oil has gained popularity for its remedial activity and has been used in Europe since then for medicinal purposes.  (Source NDA 14 May 2018).

The smell and consistancy of this product is lovely. Great a night time but feel it's rather heavy for my skin during the day when wearing makeup, but that's just my skin. Delivery was quick, packaging beautifully thought out, it's a very nice touch. I would use this product again.

I was lucky enough to receive Gerlinde Naturals organic whipped shea butter as a birthday gift and I can say I was extremely delighted.
I have very sensitive skin and struggle to find the correct products to use successfully. After using this wonderful product I find that my skin is soft and replenished, I used it on a skin breakout which I periodically have and it soothed and hydrated the area immediately. I would highly recommend Gerlinde Naturals products they are wonderful to use and are beautifully presented. Thank you Gerlinde I shall definitely be purchasing more!

This is truly a winter face saver. I apply a small amount in the morning, followed by a bit of translucent powder to tone down the shine. My skin stays perfectly hydrated all day, even in harsh wind and cold conditions. The texture is pure luxury!

I have dry and sensitive skin and this cream for me is perfect for every day use as a facial cream. I apply it first thing in the morning after a shower and top-up if necessary throughout the day. The consistency is also very good unlike others I have tried with a Shea Butter base. I also use the Super Nourishing face balm in the depths of Winter or as an overnight treat if my skin needs it. Both are excellent and will continue to use.

An oasis for Sahara dry skin

Very effective for eczema patches on face and body. This will also be invaluable in the winter on chapped skin. I have also used this as a face balm overnight with good effect. I bought a small jar initially but plan to buy a bigger size once it is finished.
