In my opinion, one of our most exciting formulations is the Calithea Organic Olive Oil Night Cream. Even before we could go to market with the product, I loved incorporating our earliest prototypes of it into my evening skincare routine. The ingredients are so unique yet naturally powerful and, of course, found growing along the coasts and countryside of Greece.
Here’s a breakdown of the 5 best hero ingredients in our night cream…
With punicic acid to stimulate skin regeneration, this ingredient replenishes both young and maturing skin. Pomegranate is also rich in many antioxidants like vitamin C as well as others that offer natural UV protection and exfoliation. This is why we include it in our Olive Oil Night Cream, which is also part of our AM/PM Set, with other essential berry extract, aloe vera, and olive oil to promote skin regeneration and give you that youthful glow!
Elderberries are rich in antioxidants such as flavonoids and anthocyanins. These powerful nutrients provide natural protection from the free environmental radicals and UV rays which wreak havoc on your skin. This ingredient is also rich in vitamins A, C, and E, all skincare powerhouse ingredients, providing anti-aging, hydrating, and skin softening boosts.
Shea butter serves as a fabulous foundation ingredient for thicker skin care products meant to lock in moisture for longer, like overnight creams and body creams. Rich in vitamin E and fatty acids, shea butter is a great emollient of the skin, nourishing the skin and protecting it from harsh weather/environmental conditions.
Over 2,000 years ago the ancient Greeks identified the active components within Aloe were extraordinarily beneficial to skin health. Along with vitamins A, C, and E, (all antioxidants), vitamin B12, folic acid, and choline, Aloe provides numerous skincare benefits such as promoting collagen production, increasing elasticity, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Aloe also soothes dry and damaged skin, leaving it soft and well-moisturized.This unique ingredient has been leveraged in treatments for scars, stretch marks, age spots, and dehydrated skin. Ever since the discovery of these amazing benefits, Aloe Vera has been a keystone ingredient in The Greek Secret and almost all skincare routines.
Seaweed provides the natural vitamins and minerals your skin needs to stay healthy and youthful. This naturally powerful ingredient helps protect your skin from pollutants and other radicals within your environment by adding a layer of protection to your skin and preventing it from drying out. Full of vitamins E, B, and C, amino acids, humectants, zinc, and magnesium, seaweed extract promotes hydrated, youthful, even skin in a natural way.
As with all our Calithea products, the Olive Oil Night Cream is free of parabens, silicones, propylene glycol, paraffin oil, phthalates, synthetic dyes, alcohol, ethanolamine and GMOs. Without all the unnecessary chemicals and harmful toxins in most mass produced brands, our skincare products leverage the powerful benefits of natural, organic ingredients, always putting your health and wellness first.
