Hey babes! Today, we’re diving into Jasmine and all its revitalizing properties as part of our Ingredient 101 series.
Jasmine belongs to the olive family “Oleaceae”. It’s a climbing plant with beautiful white, sweetly scented flowers. That is why it is also known as the queen of flowers. It is native to Kashmir in the Himalayas and southwest China, where it grows in altitudes of 2000 to 4000 meters.
In cosmetics, this ingredient provides nourishing care to very dry and sensitive skin. It has a balancing and soothing effect and antibacterial and thus anti-inflammatory properties – for a harmonious complexion and for feeling comfortable in your skin.
What type of skin benefits the most from Jasmine?
Dry and mature skin types would benefit the most from Jasmine. That’s because it lessens dry patches and provides moisture protection. A barrier of moisture is important for all skin types, to prevent the skin from being compromised. In addition to that, Jasmine can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while providing protection from external environmental factors.
What benefits does it have on the skin?
A non-irritating skincare ingredient! Jasmine Extract evens out skin tone and reduces discoloration while also providing anti-aging qualities. It’s exceptionally moisturizing and won’t clog pores. For combination skin types, this ingredient can help balance skin by adding moisture and hydration to dry areas of the face.
What skincare products contain this ingredient?
The FaceTory Everyday Jasmine Moisturizing Mask is a good one. This Jasmine Flower infused sheet mask is super hydrating and helps lock in moisture to prevent your skin from getting dry patches!
