CALENDULA

Dubbed the ‘sunshine flower’ by Dr Spiezia, Calendula flower (or marigold) is one of our favourite ingredients, and part of most of Dr Spiezia’s formulations due to its array of versatile benefits for the skin.

The naturally occurring chemical triterpene (oleanolic acid), found in the petals, tackle the overproduction of sebum helping to control bacteria growth and balance skin cell turnover.

Similarly, the high concentrations of antioxidants help to neutralise free radicals and protect against skin damage. Historically used for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties this ‘miracle’ flower is a panacea for sensitive, delicate or problem prone skin.

ROSE BUDS

These beautiful buds are a rich source of vitamin A, C and vitamin E, all antioxidants needed for keeping the skin healthy and radiant.

The nutrients found in the petals balance the skin’s PH and work as a natural anti-inflammatory to lighten dark spots, as well as breakouts.

Through strengthening skin cells and regenerating skin tissue, rosebuds can ease skin irritation or inflammation occurring through sensitivity. Another of Dr Spiezia’s best loved ingredients.

NETTLE

Commonly known for its sharp, stinging hairs, the nettle leaves carry many alleged benefits.

Rich in vitamins, magnesium and anti-oxidants, nettle leaf extract acts as a natural astringent, sustaining collagen production to tighten the skin and effectively promotes elasticity.

An unwanted weed yet a star ingredient for pro-ageing products.

ROSEHIP

Loaded with essential fatty acids and nourishing skin loving vitamins such as A, C, D and E, rosehip can help alleviate the appearance of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, scars or burns and promote an even skin tone.

Studies have also shown that this seed inhibits the creation of MMP-1, an enzyme that breaks down collagen in the body. 

With a consistency easily absorbed by skin, the cold pressed oil allows the nutrients and antioxidants deep into the skin to replenish from the inside out.

SPIRULINA

The power packed green algae is known to be one of the most nutrient-dense foods on earth; deemed top super-food, it works wonders internally and externally.

On the skin, this antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredient can reduce swelling, prevent overgrowth of bacteria (great for problem prone skin) whilst nourishing tired looking skin by shedding dead skin cells to reveal a more rejuvenated, radiant complexion.

Vitamin E, tyrosine, and tocopherol - antioxidants naturally present in the algae - are well known for their anti-ageing effects, especially for removing free radicals which are responsible for fine lines, wrinkles and premature skin ageing.
