Human+Kind have selected Mother Nature’s kindest ingredients and blended them with timeless beauty secrets from around the world. So you get all of the healing and nourishing benefits with none of the ‘nasties.’

Aloe barbadensis gel is a powerful moisturiser, which penetrates the skin supplying moisture directly to the tissues. It is renowned for its soothing and calming effect on burns. Aloe improves skin tone and colour by increasing the blood flow to the areas of application. It reduces skin redness, and works synergistically with the other anti-inflammatory ingredients in our products.

Marshmallow has anti-inflammatory properties and helps in healing wounds, burns and alleviates skin irritations.

Betula Alba Bark (Birch) Extract Contains salicylate, the compound found in aspirin. Salicylate relieves inflammation. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions of birch bark support its traditional uses in skin disorders such as eczema.

Broccoli Extract Contains sulforaphane which reduces the inflammation caused by UV damage.

Shea butter is a natural moisturiser which prevents dermal irritation and aids in skin regeneration. It is suitable for particularly dry skin. It works as an anti-inflammatory helping to soothe itchy, irritated or sunburned skin and helps the skin to retain moisture.

Calendula has excellent anti-inflammatory properties for skin. It is ideal where tissue degeneration is an issue – such as stubborn wounds, sores, acne, ulcers, bed sores, varicose veins, bruises, rashes, eczema etc.

Centella Asiatica Extract Boosts circulation, improves the collagen foundation of the skin, and fights oxidation – thereby making it a superb ingredient for anti-ageing skin care products as well as improving skin firmness and elasticity.

Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail) extract is high in silica, a trace mineral required by the body for glowing skin. Breakdown of connective tissue causes the skin to sag and develop wrinkles but silica rich Horsetail extract helps to strengthen connective tissue. It has healing properties so it helps to soothe cuts and improve dry skin conditions as well as having astringent properties which help to shrink pores and tone skin.

Lilium Candidum Bulb (White Lily) Extract Used to treat ailments and problems, such as burns, wound healing, treating damaged and irritated tissue and rejuvenating the skin.

Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea tree) leaf oil has anti-bacterial, anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.. It can be used to help clear up acne, skin lesions and blemishes, cold sores, athlete’s foot, sunburn, fungal nail infections and infected wounds, while the balsamic properties of the oil soothe irritated and inflamed skin.

Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract Rich in oleanoic acid, flavonoids and a compound called secoiridoid oleuropein. These have significant benefits for skin conditions as they assist in the healing of wounds.

Organic Coconut Oil is absorbed easily into the skin. It ideal for the relief of dry skin and psoriasis and eczema. Coconut oil aids in removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, making the skin smoother.

Avocado oil is rich and deeply penetrating. It has excellent emollient and skin healing properties. It contains an abundance of vitamins and is high in sterolins which help to reduce age spots. Avocado oil is used as a treatment for dry skin and itching making it an ideal remedy against skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It also helps to smooth out stretch marks and wrinkles.

Rosehip Seed Oil is high in Vitamins A and C. It is also high in essential fatty acids like linoleic acid or omega-6, and linolenic acid or omega-3. It is used for a variety of skin conditions, including dermatitis, acne and eczema. It is suitable for mature and sun burnt skin and is frequently used to heal scarring

New Year Skin Resolutions With Herbline Essentials!

Improve the appearance of your skin in just a few steps and with a little help from homegrown all-natural beauty brand, Herbline Essentials

Welcome to 2015 – a brand New Year that’s filled with so many new opportunities and the chance to break bad beauty habits and start again afresh. So, if you’re sleeping with your make-up on, forgetting to apply SPF when out and about, or not drinking enough water to keep yourself hydrated, now is the time to make some positive steps to change and up the ante on your beauty routine in the year ahead.

1. Stop sleeping in your make-up!

How many times do we vow to do this?  Well, all the time probably, until we don’t have the energy to walk to the bathroom and wash our faces! We understand the days get busy, but simply put, if you have time to put make-up on, you need to make time to take it off.  Sleeping in make-up, not only marks your lovely bed linen, but it’s the perfect breeding ground for bacteria too. Instead of falling asleep in your foundation, think about how you can re-order your life to incorporate a better cleansing routine.  If you doze off in front of the TV every night, clean your face before you turn it on. Do you hate washing your face in the sink, then take a shower and wash it then.

Herbline Product recommendation:  Aloe Vera and Honey Cleansing Milk (AED 99) – The Aloe Vera acts as a natural cleanser, while the honey penetrates deeply to nourish the skin. The formula works effectively on make-up and dirt, unclogging pores and moisturing the skin at the same time.

2. Cleanse, tone and moisturise – embrace the importance of a good routine!

Clean, healthy skin is always on trend and embracing the three-step skincare routine really does work, so take the time to choose and invest in some good products that will cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin. It will thank you for it in the long run.

Herbline Product recommendation:  Hero product, the Cucumber & Rose Skin Tonic (AED 105) cools and softens your skin. This tonic is blended with a natural moisturiser and mild astringent that will soothe and tone, leaving your skin moist, supple and beautifully fresh. It is especially good after shaving and waxing too.

3. Give the same attention to the skin on your body as you do to the skin on your face

How many of us happily moisturise our face, but forget all about the rest of the skin on our bodies?. Moisturise your whole body every day, using a lotion, body butter or one of the new moisturising sprays. It’s important to replenish your skin’s lost moisture, especially in this colder season. Also, don’t forget to body brush your body once a week, to kick start healthy blood circulation.

Herbline Product recommendation:  Aloe Vera and Honey Moisturising Lotion (AED 99) – combining the moisture rich properties of Aloe Vera with nutritive honey, this delicious moisturiser works as a light, yet powerful, detoxifying and healing lotion. As it hydrates, the skin is transformed, becoming smoother and more supple.

4. Don’t forget your SPF!

Sunscreen isn’t just for when you hit the beach. Never forget the importance of protecting your skin from the sun, especially here in the harsh desert environment, as you go about your day-to-day life.   On a daily basis, the sun’s UV rays can affect our skin more than we realise. Long-term, regular exposure to the sun can decrease the elasticity of our skin, resulting in premature aging, while too much sun can also decrease our skin’s immune function, making us more susceptible to cancerous cells.

Herbline Product recommendation:  SPF 40 Sun Screen Lotion (AED 109) is fast absorbing and protects your skin from wind, sun exposure and heat, whilst gently moisturising. Suitable for all ages and skin types, this lotion can help to heal minor rashes and sunburn. Just don’t forget to re-apply it every 2 hours or after swimming.

5. Sleep more!

While eight hours of sleep might not be for everybody, you know better than anybody just how much sleep your body actually needs. It’s just so easy to try and get by on less than that, isn’t it? Here’s the thing though: your skin, (like the rest of your body), regenerates and repairs as you sleep. This means that getting adequate sleep will do wonders for your complexion and your overall health.

Herbline Product recommendation:  Try Herbline’s wonder cream, the Aloe Vera, Apricot & Sunflower Nourishing Cream (AED 141). The powerful Nourishing Cream works by increasing your skin’s resilience to moisture, leaving it soft and completely hydrated. It contains natural ingredients that have SPF properties according to the study of Ayurveda and will detoxify and heal. Pair a good night’s sleep with this replenishing moisturizer and wake up to renewed and replenished skin.
