The unmissable bamboo and the traditional Thanaka are, as far as they are concerned, two great allies to protect and tight the delicate parts of your skin.
Meet the new wunderkind of skincare: The Gotu Kola!
Also known as centella asiatica or commonly as pennywort, Gotu Kola is best known in the ancient world for its health benefits (improves brain function, eases anxiety, treats infections and is revered as an herb of longevity, among others). Today, we have decided to bring it into our Bodia ingredients family. As of the ingredients in skin care products, thanks to its potent combination of amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids and phytochemicals. These sources are everything the skin needs, It acts perfectly to fight off the signs of aging and to protect your skin from environmental stressors.
Gotu kola is rich in triternene saponins, a compound that helps keep skin tighter and firmer and is also a great antioxidant and fights off free radical damage. It boosts the formation of collagen and skin tissue, which is crucial in maintaining the skin’s elasticity and youthful glow. Another benefit that gotu kola is most known for is its ability to improve blood circulation. This speeds up the skin’s healing process and makes it effective in treating varicose veins, broken capillaries and stubborn cellulite. Goodbye, pimple scars and blemishes!
The Sericin, where science of nature, innovation, beauty, and luxury meet.
In Cambodia, it is an ancient and traditional knowhow to raise worms and weave the silk threads. Sericin has been scattered until now as it was no use for the fabric textile industry. However we now know why people who cleaned the silk threads have the reputation of having the softest hands in Asia : because of the extraordinary softening properties of Sericin. This silk protein offers anti-wrinkle effects and increases skin elasticity. Sericin also holds great antioxidant power by preventing lipid peroxidation. It has a soothing effect and reduces the expression of inflammatory mediators, strengthens the skin barrier and prevents water loss, it also has moisturizing properties.
Why Bamboo is a great beauty ingredient?!
Bamboo is one of the most commonly known trees in Asia and in Cambodia of course. Typically used for construction or home decor, the panda’s favorite food is actually a not-so-secret ingredient in the beauty industry. Bamboo leaf contains one of the highest concentrations of silica. An ingredient that can help give your skin a radiant glow. In addition to having hydration benefits, silica aids the production of collagen, which firms skin and gives it a youthful bounce. It has a direct impact on skin’s elasticity and in preventing moisture loss. It also contains antioxidants and prevents skin from degradation keeping it plumply and bouncing.
What is Thanaka, the 'Apple Tree'?
Yes, you read correct! The Thanaka is a very well-known tree in Cambodia for its fruits: apples. This Cambodia fruit is widely appreciated and sold on the markets for its degustation usage. Only in Burma the bark of the tree is grinded and used as sunscreen and natural make up. Its main cosmetics interest stands in its high concentration of tannic acid that protects from UV rays and from its antioxidants properties that preserve cells and tighten the skin.
WHY YOUR SKIN NEED REGENERATION POWER?
Our natural products are perfect for all types of skin and fit for all ages. Skin regeneration is the process of which old, dead skin cells on the surface of the skin are replaced by younger skin. Skin cells turnover decreases with age normally it takes 28 days for our skin to be replaced with a new skin. But with the aging, the stress or daily agressions, the process can take longer. That’s why we need to scrub, exfoliate, and use regeneration skincare.
What happen if you don’t use any regeneration products? When your skin’s cells are being replaced with the new one, some of your old dead skin might cover upon this new skin and create dots, scars or other micro injuries. Due to this fact, your skin is more subject to get wrinkles, dehydratation, and aging quickly. This is why Bodia Cambodian Apothecary is focused on the creation of 100% natural products which will help you to keep your skin healthy, younger and illuminated!
