Gentle, pure skincare

As skin is a living breathing tissue its needs will change according to our circumstances and demands of daily lifecentral heating, outdoor living, stress, hormonal changes.

For example when you are stressed, tired or subject to extreme heat or cold a rich cream may better suit the skins needs. At other times a light cream may offer ample protection and nourishment.

The skin is a wonderful communication method which can show us what is going on at a deeper level.

Most skin conditions will involve active inflammation. Inflammation is a natural part of the healing process and something that should be fully suppressed. It arises when cells within a certain tissue become aware of changes that have occurred that may lead to damage or infection. Chemical changes then follow including increased blood flow to the area which causes redness and heat. Think of the redness and heat of an early eczema outbreak or the redness of a new spot.

Using ingredients in products that have a gentle anti-inflammatory effect is an excellent starting place for problem skin.

Sandalwood, chamomile, bergamot essential oils

Olive oil, sunflower, coconut, safflower, sesame, jojoba, rosehip oil

These have all been proven to have anti-inflammatory effect and are key ingredients throughout the Silvan Skincare range.
