PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Our Arctic Cloudberry Facial Moisturizer is our premium facial moisturizer. It is similar to our Regenerative Facial Moisturizer, but with a slant towards Scandinavian. This moisturizer has been formulated to help skin maintain radiance in today&squo;s challenging environment. We packed in some of the best ingredients such as: jojoba oil, borage seed oil, hyaluronic acid (HA), panthenol, arctic lingonberry extract and arctic cloudberry seed oil. This facial moisturizer has a light lingonberry scent, as it will be applied near the nose area. This has become one of the more popular products in our Nørdik line.

INGREDIENTS

Distilled water, extra virgin organic coconut oil, organic jojoba oil, shea butter, emulsifying wax, borage oil, vegetable glycerin, stearic acid, cyclomethicone, HA (hyaluronic acid), arctic cloudberry seed oil, arctic lingonberry extract, panthenol, phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol

This is our line of premium Scandinavian derived organic bath and body products. They were formulated using mostly sourced Scandinavian ingredients. They were all given product names of Nordic origins. They contain pure therapeutic grade essential oils (most are organic). Our Nørdik Arctic Cloudberry Facial Moisturizer is formulated using Jojoba Oil as our base oil. We have also sourced several “super fruits” from Scandinavia that result in a synergistic blend that creates a very premium moisturizer. Arctic Cloudberry Seed Oil (Finland) and Arctic Lingonberry Extract (Sweden) are highly antioxidant ingredients that are excellent for skin cell regeneration and a reduction in wrinkles. We use “sulfate/ paraben free preservatives” phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol in our Nørdik Arctic Lingonberry Facial Moisturizer. We are very proud of this line offering as Mike's grandparents emigrated from Scandinavia; his grandfather from Finland and his grandmother from Sweden. Our facial moisturizer is packaged in a black plastic bottle and a black pump with a square label attached.

The quality ingredients that go into this product include the following:

Organic Jojoba Oil

Jojoba (pronounced ho-HO-ba) oil is a botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree (Simmondsia chinenis). Technically it is not actually an oil, but rather what is called a wax ester. Why do we care? Because out of all of the compounds in nature, this wax ester is the most similar to human skin oil (sebum). It is theorized that applying jojoba to the skin can “trick” the skin into thinking it is producing enough oil, thus balancing oil production. The bottom line for acne-prone people is that jojoba oil is non-comedogenic so you can use it without fear. Jojoba provides all day moisturization, jojoba oil doesn't evaporate like water based moisturizers can.

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Used in the base mix of oils, coconut oil is derived from the coconut fruit. This vitamin rich oil is used in body care products for its naturally emollient (softening) and lubricating properties. This gentle oil is naturally antiseptic and antioxidant, making it a great ingredient for the skin. Hydrating and soothing make this oil a perfect addition in skin care.

Arctic Cloudberry Seed Oil

Cloudberries are wild berries that grow all over Finland, but are most abundant in boggy areas around the Arctic Circle. Because of its ability to survive temperatures of -40° F, the Cloudberry is one of the few flowering plants to have spread to the farthest north. Its geographical location, with nights that are significantly colder than the days, enables Cloudberries to produce twice as much vitamin C as oranges. Cloudberry Seed oil contains large amounts of linoleic and alpha-linoleic acid (omega 6 & omega 3), vitamins A and E, and plant sterols. It strengthens skin, prevents aging and due to its antioxidant effects, protects skin from external factors. Moreover, the detoxification properties of Cloudberry Seed oil help to make the skin look brighter and more radiant. The benefits of Cloudberry seed oil have been studied in numerous independent cosmetic labs. It has been proven from investigations in independent labs in Finland to be one of the most effective antioxidants for preventing oxidation of the skins structure.

Arctic Lingonberry Extract

The Lingonberry is Scandinavia's most widely harvested wild berry. It grows in dry soil, especially in spruce forests and lichen-covered ground. Lingonberry is very popular as an ingredient for its beneficial effects on skin. The berry extract contains large amounts of flavonoids, moisturizing properties, phenol compounds and antioxidants. The seed oil promotes skin renewal. Antioxidants and essential fatty acids (omegas) provide the skin with important nutrition. The leaves of the Lingonberry plant contain arbutin, which has a lightening effect on skin discoloration. Lingonberry has high levels of vitamin C, which protects and brightens the skin.

Phenoxyethanol (preservative)

Phenoxyethanol is an organic compound derived from Sage essential oil. It is one of the most widely used safe and effective preservatives in dermatological products such as skin creams. Phenoxyethanol also works as a topical antiseptic. It provides a broad spectrum anti-microbial activity against either gram-negative or gram-positive bacteria, yeasts and molds. (sulfate/ paraben free)

Caprylyl Glycol (preservative)

Caprylyl Glycol, which is probably the most effective “humectant” available today. It is naturally derived from coconut and has the unique property of protecting against microbial growth from bacteria and yeast, while giving the finished product exceptional feel. (sulfate/ paraben free)

Organic Borage Seed Oil

Borage seed oil is derived from the extracted oil of the seeds. It is extremely high in gamma linoleic acid (GLA) that is extremely beneficial to skin. It exhibits a potent anti-inflammatory effect on the skin and also is very effective in regulating water loss and protecting the skin from injury and damage. Borage seed oil is especially beneficial to people with eczema and psoriasis. Simply put, Borage seed oil is just good for your skin.

Hyaluronic acid (HA)

This is a powerful humectant. It is said to absorb 1000 times its weight in water, making it the perfect ingredient in facial and skin care products.

Cyclomethicone (a natural silicone)

This is a natural silicone that is very healing and smoothing to the skin. Again, a perfect ingredient for a facial moisturizer

Gently massage moisturizer into face and neck paying special attention to any fine lines or wrinkles. Use daily to soften, smooth, tighten and tone your skin. Don't forget to apply to the neck region as most people forget this area and only apply to the face.
