SYLVECO – Skincare that Harnesses the Power of Plants!

Since time immemorial, humans have used the power of plants to tackle multiple skincare concerns. In fact, ancient Egyptians concocted their own sun protection by blending lupine, jasmine and rice bran extracts into a paste that was then applied to their skin to shield themselves from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Also, in the middle ages women would apply an ointment made of Cowslip flowers to get rid of spots and wrinkles. In recent years however, many skincare companies have begun using synthetic ingredients because they are faster and cheaper to produce. Having said this, there are still many companies that believe natural plant extracts are superior to synthetic ones – SYLVECO is one of these!

Biolaven – All Skin Types, Anti-Aging Properties

This range of products is suitable for all skin types, however, they are particularly well suited to those looking to fight signs of aging. They are distinguished by two characteristic active ingredients – lavender oil and grape seed oil. Lavender oil gives a sweet herbal and floral aroma, and also relaxes, soothes skin irritations and has anti-seborrhoeic properties. Grape seed oil is a rich source of vitamin E, known as the vitamin of youth. In combination with other ingredients – avocado butter, vegetable squalane, panthenol, oat proteins – these cosmetics strengthen the natural protective barrier of the skin, accelerate regeneration, and normalize the secretion of sebum. When used systematically, they allow you to enjoy smooth, moisturised and nourished skin.
