Cherry Blossom is the name of the flower of the cherry tree, or Sakura originally from Japan. The extract from these blossoms when used in skincare crèmes penetrates deep within the top layer of our skin and helps prevent the production of melanin (also called pigment) that makes up the colour of your skin. Melanin occurs naturally in your skin, but sometimes over production occurs (usually caused by exposure to the sun) which causes darker patches of skin, or pigmentation. The reduction in the production of melanin means these darker patches of skin will disappear over a period of time.

Collagen is a moisture retaining protein that rejuvenates and replaces protein back into the skin. This helps the skin retain moisture, thereby giving it a more youthful appearance. Collagen also promotes healthy cell renewal, elasticity, resilience and tone leaving the skin soft and healthy. The depletion of collagen in our skin leads to the formation of wrinkles and the occurrence of other signs of ageing – which is clearly why replacing it is so popular in the nearly continuous fight against the visible signs of growing old. You have heard of collagen implants in lips – with the resulting plump, lush look? Collagen in skincare works in a similar way – it plumps up the skin in and around wrinkles making them appear less visible.
