Face cream & serum duo with rose, argan and vitamin E.
Rose essential oil is uplifting, aromatic and antioxidant rich. It has been acclaimed through thousands of years for its use in natural skin and hair care. Varita combines this precious oil with Vitamin E to help block free radicals from the body. Free radicals are known to play a large part in the ageing process. We can reduce wrinkles and keep our skin looking youthful by fighting the signs of age with vitamin E. It has basic antioxidant properties that we all need for a healthy complexion and the result is a rich, aromatic and nourishing treatment that penetrates the skin leaving it hydrated, nourished and healthy.
Varita has been carefully blended to help to reduce the appearance of scars and it has a number of anti ageing properties. After being absorbed into the skin, vitamin E sinks below the surface to the deeper layers of the skin. Here it encourages the natural growth of collagen.
*Please note coconut oil melts at 24 °C (76 °F), products (i.e. Varita face cream) containing coconut oil tend to melt in warm climates.
