Milk Thistle is one of the most beautiful and most elegant thistles, originally from the South of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, but is now found throughout the world. It’s been used for centuries as a detoxing herb, but more recently has come into play as a powerful healing plant for the skin. The skin is our body’s largest organ, so it’s natural that we both absorb and eliminate toxins through it.
The oil from the Milk Thistle seeds contains silymarin which is responsible for the detoxifying effect. Because of this effect the oil improves the condition and quality of the skin significantly and therefor Blue Zone forever uses this organic oil in the day cream for dry skin.
Milk thistle’s demulcent properties help to hydrate and soften dry and very dry skin, improving the texture, making it smooth and supple. The anti-inflammatory cooling effect of milk thistle eases inflammation and redness associated with acne and helps to clear symptoms associated with eczema and psoriasis. It is useful even for sensitive skin. The vitamin E has protective benefits while fatty acids help to put up skin’s natural moisture barrier. Daily use of cream with Milk Thistle oil from early on can assist the skin to look younger.
