Skin ages from changes in all of the three structural components of the skin: the epidermis, the dermis, and the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ). All three thin and flatten, and the skin substance loses its tonicity, resilience, and elasticity. To effectively support skin cohesion, all three of these tissue zones should be targeted.
A high-quality extract from the fruits of Schisandra Chinensis stimulates the two important molecules in the DEJ tension regulators, collagen XVII, and ladinin-1 proteins, and reinforces the cohesion between the dermis and epidermis. Used daily over 8 weeks, this extract improves firmness (+25%), resilience (+8%), and elasticity (+28%)*.
Rosebud Woman’s organic Schisandra extract is cleanly processed. The extraction process of our Schisandra is done through Supercritical CO2, a toxic chemical-free method of getting the best out of this plant without any solvents.
100% of our Schisandra is Organically Farmed, and certified by Ecocert Greenlife according to the Ecocert Standard for Natural and Organic Cosmetics.
Another ingredient in Anoint, Centella Asiatica, helps with collagen synthesis, burns, scars, stretch marks, and anti-aging. Its ingredient data studies support anti-wrinkle, anti-acne, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial benefits.
Vogue says, “For that head-to-toe glow, Rosebud Woman’s Anoint Body Oil doubles as a self-massage oil, body hydrator, stretchmark- and scar-lightener, and helps to keep the skin on your body and sensitive areas elastic and resilient.”
Some suggestions about how to use Anoint: As a reverent toes-up self-massage in the morning; as a pelvic or perineal massage for expecting mothers; or as a sensuous exchange with a lover. For more ideas get a copy of our book, The Invitation: Daily Love for Your Intimate Self.
Our skin is by far our largest organ, with the miraculous ability to absorb sunlight, moisture, essential oils, balms, and even vitamins. Although we may not do it as often as we like, we have the ability to nourish our skin directly through the unguents we apply. To anoint ourselves (and our babies, and our lovers) this way is a high form of reverence.
