ANCIENT CANADIAN ARCTIC MINERAL SALT:
Long before the Ice Age, much of the Northern part of Continental America was an ocean. As it receded, mineral deposits were left behind from evaporation in very select areas. Dating back 400 million years, these unusual pink "quartz like" deposits are harvested nearly 3000ft (1000 meters) below the ground in Canada's far North. The purity and concentration of minerals from these ancient sea salts, offer de-toxifying benefits to the skin.

In aromatherapy, aromatic molecules, or the active ingredients in essential oils, interact with the nasal cavity when inhaled through the nose. Next, these molecules make their way up to the brain at the limbic system, which controls the activity of the endocrine and nervous systems. The brain then transmits these molecules to the organ systems. The endocrine system, which is in charge of hormonal release, carries these molecules as hormones are released to the bloodstream and in turn the molecules are circulated to different parts of the body with the blood. The nervous system, when doused with aromatic molecules, sends messages to its nerve receptors to slow down, subsequently creating stress relief.
BLUE MALLE EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL:
A top note with a strong aroma, Eucalyptus Blue Mallee has a fresh, camphoraceous aroma.
Traditionally, eucalyptus oil was used as an analgesic agent that helped to relieve pain, and it was valued for its ability to reduce inflammation and improve respiratory conditions.
Eucalyptol, or 1,8-cineole, which accounts for 70–90 percent of the contents of eucalyptus oil, has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. Eucalyptus is also well known for its ability to fight bacterial, viral and fungal infections, and to help clear the respiratory tract of built up mucus.
Sodium bicarbonate is a natural mineral, used to clean and smooth the skin.
Citric Acid is a weak organic acid. Citric acid is also an antioxidant that reduces the effects of aging. It helps repair the skin and fortify blood vessels. Citric acid can also help loosen the damaged layers of skin. This results in the healthier, younger skin underneath the spoiled skin coming to the top, giving you fairer skin and an effervescent complexion.

Effects of Topical Vitamins:
Thickens and stimulates the dermis – where your collagen, elastin and blood vessels are – so it reduces wrinkles and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin. Vitamin A actually increases the deposition of collagen; therefore it slows the normal aging breakdown of your collagen and elastin. It is considered a thorough exfoliator, and this repeated shedding of the upper dermal layer forces the skin to produce new cells and stimulate collagen production.
Will help heal damaged complexion when applied topically.
Topical vitamin C has beneficial effects on skin cells, and some studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)-induced photodamage.
Is an antioxidant superstar. Benefits include enhancing the efficacy of active sunscreen ingredients, reducing the formation of free radicals from exposure to UV rays, promoting the healing process, strengthening the skin's barrier function, protecting the skin barrier's lipid balance, and reducing trans epidermal water loss.
Vitamin D plays an integral role in skin protection and rejuvenation.
In its active form as calcitriol, vitamin D contributes to skin cell growth, repair, and metabolism. It optimizes the skin’s immune system and helps destroy free radicals that can cause premature aging.
Topical vitamin D application can exert a protective and rejuvenating effect on aging skin.
Increase cell turn-over and regeneration in the outer layers of the skin. Topical application of beta-carotene can enhance the appearance of the skin by restoring suppleness and adding a “glowing” pigment that seemingly evens out the skin tone. Beta-carotene’s antioxidant attributes, such as sun damage protection, are used to prevent the signs of aging in the skin; Beta-carotene’s corrective properties are used to help heal scratches and prevent scarring.
Simply means the removal of ions. Ions are electrically charged atoms or molecules found in water that have either a net negative or positive charge.
