Hello Everyone, my name is Alexia and I'm a Cherish addict. No matter how many body lotions and potions I try, this one keeps drawing me back, nothing else makes me feel quite so good, know-what-I-mean... I asked Michelle Roques O'Neil to explain why:
All of Therapie's products are designed to have positive, multidimensional effects on both your physical and mental state. Cherish Body Serum not only conditions and moisturises skin - improving tone and texture - it includes powerful healing oils and extracts that protect and sooth against holiday sun damage and environmental pollution (it's also safe & incredibly effective to use against stretchmarks while pregnant).
Infused with an energetically restorative, uplifting aroma, created by plant essences that support cellular regeneration, tone and improved circulation. Geranium (healing & circulation boosting), Ylang Ylang (lifts depression & balances mood swings), Neroli (fabulously supportive both physically & emotionally), Tangerine (combats stretch marks & skin congestion) and Patchouli (skin toning & moisturising).
The A-list Ingredients
Rosehip Seed oil - source of trans-retinoic acid (a natural precursor of Vitamin A), also good for treating all kinds of skin infections and the repair of damaged skin tissue caused by scalds, burns, varicose veins and skin over-exposed to sunlight. The best vegetable oil source of omega 3 & 6, both essential fatty acids for cellular membrane and tissue regeneration.
Argan oil - Rich in the Essential Fatty Acid, Linoleic acid, which helps the body to reduce inflammation by producing prostaglandins (a group of lipids your body makes at sites of tissue damage) especially good for the regeneration of the sensitive skin in the upper chest and neck areas.
Red raspberry seed oil - Perfect for sensitive skin, deeply nourishing, softening, emollient, conditioning, with a lipid barrier that provides protection and moisture retention for the skin. Often used in sunscreen products due to its UV absorbing properties, it contains a sun protection factor (SPF) of 28-50, plus extremely high levels of alpha and gamma Tocopherol (vitamin E), vitamin A, approximately 30% of omega 3 and 54% of omega 6 fatty acids, so with approximately 84% content of essential fatty acids, it gives the skin a vital broad spectrum defense from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Carrot Tissue Oil - Gives the skin colour, shine and nourishment so good for undernourished, dull, tired, dehydrated, sun damaged or mature skin. Carrot oil improves complexion, tone and creating a fresher appearance.
Prickly Pear seed oil-combats dry skin, improving hydration as it works as both an emollient and an occlusive (helps to stop Trans-Epidermal Water Loss), helps to slow down the destruction of the connective tissue and in turn prevent wrinkling.
Artic Blackcurrant seed CO2 extract -Is the only plant oil containing Omega 6 and Omega 3 Fatty Acids in an optimal physiological ratio excellent for nourishing and rejuvenation.
Sea Buckthorn oil - Alleviates sunburn, promotes cell rejuvenation, has excellent pain- and stress- relieving and anti-inflammatory properties.
Grapeseed oil - high content of omega 6 (Linoleic Acid), relieves problems with poor blood circulation.
Rosemary Antioxidant – A new-generation antioxidants important for increasing shelf life. This Antioxidant is more stable than Vitamin E for products such as Vegetable Oils and Creams.
If you are interested in trying Therapie, it's worth dipping your toe with the Discovery Kit, which contains a mini of everything in the range (also good to refill when traveling).
