Elemis’s Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil is the perfect January product in so many ways. Firstly, it’s the perfect shade of Ultra Violet – Pantone’s color of the year for 2018. Secondly, it’s a nighttime product – and we plan to spend a lot of January hibernating/sleeping/in bed. Finally, it’s packed full of ingredients to boost your post-festive skin.
The main ingredient in the product is Night Scented Stock Oil. Working directly with agronomists in the British countryside, Elemis cultivated a new superbotanical.
High in the essential fatty acid, Omega-3, and with an excellent level of Vitamin E – ten times more than many other known natural oils used in skincare – for the first time ever, Night Scented Stock is being grown on a commercial scale in England solely to extract oil from the seeds for use in skincare.
Grown on a farm that has been run by three generations of the same family for over 50 years, and which has a reputation for specialist crops, the family’s expertise and experimentation in crop diversity has brought this innovation exclusively to Elemis, and ultimately, to their Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil which launched last July.
Night Scented Stock naturally broadens biodiversity as it blooms in the evening thereby attracting nocturnal wildlife. It is also a species which is sown in spring and harvested in autumn providing a natural habitat on the farm at times of the year when the land would be otherwise empty or growing agricultural crops.
Night Scented Stock flowers in June and July attracting honey bees and butterflies, further supporting the ecosystem.
So, if you feel the need for a winter glow to your skin – and who doesn’t have tired, unloved skin at this time of year – then check this product out.
Apply it in the evening after cleansing, either alone or over a serum.
