Noor 1 Botanical Skin Elixir

Aging has a variety of adverse effects on the skin, causing it to become thinner and lose its elasticity, resulting in sagging and wrinkles. Blemishes can take longer to heal and years of suntanning can take their toll, leading to dryness, age spots and wrinkles.

Environmental factors, such as UV light from the sun, cause the skin to lose elasticity over the years, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Meanwhile, age spots occur after years of sun exposure. Larger than freckles, they commonly appear on the face, making it particularly important to cover up with a suncream of SPF 15 or higher and limit sun exposure.

With age, many people start to suffer from skin dryness, leaving patches of skin feeling scaly or rough. This can arise from a variety of different causes, including smoking tobacco, stress, spending time in very dry air, too much sun exposure and failing to hydrate sufficiently. Skin dryness can be exacerbated by health problems, such as kidney disease or diabetes, and hygiene habits, such as using soap or taking hot baths. Skin dryness can also occur due to an age-related loss of sweat or oil glands. Fortunately, there are steps everyone can take to make their skin feel and look younger. Using serums and moisturisers can be an effective means of hydration, leaving skin smoother and more youthful looking.

Noor 1 Botanical Skin Elixir contains no less than 15 beauty-enhancing natural ingredients in total: organic actives that have been revered by civilisations past and present for their beautifying qualities. These include:

  • Vitamin C, an essential defence against not only the common cold but also against tell-tale signs of aging, such as skin sagging and dullness. Vitamin C aids collagen synthesis, making the skin appear firmer and smoother. In addition, it also has antioxidant qualities, helping to lighten dark spots, counter free-radical damage, and regulate sebum to prevent acne breakouts and decrease inflammation.
  • Green tea extract, which is well known for its antioxidant properties, helping to reverse UV damage and soothe skin inflammation.
  • Witch hazel, which not only helps to control oil and reduce redness but also hydrates the skin.
  • Coconut oil, a plant fat that hydrates and soothes the skin and is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Soy, a good alternative to prescription products that helps brighten the skin and make it more even in tone. Studies suggest that topical soy helps to lighten skin discoloration caused by sun damage and melasma by inhibiting overproduction of melanin pigment in the skin.
  • Shea butter. Derived from the nut of the shea tree, this prized ingredient is loaded with fatty acids, acting as a natural moisturiser. Clinical studies reveal that shea butter is an effective treatment for eczema in both children and adults, reducing itching and calming the skin.
  • Oatmeal, one of the few natural ingredients approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to treat skin conditions such as dry skin and eczema. Oat proteins and lipids help maintain and replenish the skin barrier, as well as containing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory chemicals.
  • Liquorice extract, to help alleviate redness and reduce uneven pigmentation. Liquorice extract has been shown to have a positive impact on skin conditions like rosacea, as well as visibly lightening dark under-eye circles.

Noor 1 Botanical Skin Elixir was created to counteract age-related skin problems, combining the latest science with the rejuvenating power of natural botanicals that have been revered for their therapeutic qualities for centuries. This lightweight, easily absorbed  serum is made using an ultraconcentrated formula, meaning that a little goes a long way. It provides powerful long-term hydration to achieve a noticeable reduction in fine lines, while significantly reducing the appearance of even deeper wrinkles.
