Dandelion is included in multiple skin care products by Gracieux Beauty. These would include the Vitamin C Cleanser, Vitamin C Eye Treatment, Vitamin C Moisturizer, and Vitamin C Serum. Dandelion translates into “lion’s tooth” in French. Dandelions were brought by the pilgrims as a medicine. Natural dandelion is rich in calcium and vitamin K, which is essential for the growth and strength of bones. It is also rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and luteolin, which protect the bones from age-related disorders like osteoporosis and arthritis. Dandelion sap is rich in fiber. It is also known as dandelion milk and is useful in treating skin diseases which are caused by infections. The reason dandelion works well is because the sap is highly alkaline and has germicidal, insecticidal, and fungicidal properties. This sap can be used on itches, ringworm, eczema, bruises, and other skin conditions without the risk of side effects or hormonal disturbances commonly caused by pharmaceutical skin treatments. Dandelion juice is also a good treatment for acne. Being a stimulant, diuretic, and detoxifier by nature, it could help regulate proper secretion of hormones, increase sweating, and widen the pores. All of these factors help facilitate the removal of toxins through sweat and urine. Dandelion sap, if externally applied, can minimize infections and reduce the signs of acne. It’s vitamin C content can speed up healing on skin, so acne scars and inflammation will be less noticeable. Milk from the stems have been known to treat warts. Half a cup of the green part of the plant has more vitamins than sum multivitamins.Top Return

This is called an astringent and in past history it has been used for wounds, to help close up the wound. Some Indians would use the entire plant including the roots. They would grind it up and carry it with them so if they were ever wounded they would apply the crushed-up plant and it would minimize or possibly stop the bleeding. The Meskwaki Indians brewed a root tea for a toothache and for painful nerves and they also mashed the roots for treating hemorrhoids. Wild geranium can also act as an anti-inflammatory. Other natural ways to use this plant are for cold sores, insect stings as well as mosquito repellent. Some people have claimed it has also helped with bruises, cuts and scrapes, eczema, hemorrhoids, nail fungus and sunburns as well as help with varicose veins.

The Gracieux skin care products that include aloe are the Vitamin C Cleanser, Vitamin C Eye Treatment, Vitamin C Toner, Vitamin C Moisturizer, Superfruits Masque and Vitamin C Serum. Aloe was known as “the plant of immortality” by the Ancient Egyptians and has been important by many cultures after the Egyptians. Aloe vera is commonly grown in natural tropical climates worldwide. Both Cleopatra and Nefertiti were known to use and value the aloe plant juice as part of their daily beauty routines. They also believed that the plant hanging in a doorway would protect them from slander and evil influences. Alexander the Great also used aloe as a medicinal treatment. He used aloe juice to heal the wounds of his warriors on the battlefield. For over 1,000 years it has been used to treat more than 50 medical conditions, from obesity to burns, dermatitis, ulcers, asthma, diabetes, acne, and even leprosy. Aloe is still known today for its many health benefits. There are hundreds of products that advertise they use aloe. One of the more common uses for Aloe vera gel today is to help relieve sunburn and help heal wounds. Aloe Vera is about 95% water, but the remaining 5% is made up of extremely high levels of healthy enzymes. This may be because the plant thrives in dry, unstable climates. To survive the harsh conditions, the plant’s leaves store water. You can use aloe vera to keep your skin clear and hydrated. These water-dense leaves, combined with complex carbohydrates, make it an effective face moisturizer and pain reliever. Aloe vera also contains various powerful antioxidant compounds. A review of 4 experimental studies found that Aloe vera could reduce the healing time of burns by around 9 days compared to conventional medication. In one study of 30 women over the age of 45, topical application of the gel was shown to increase collagen production and improve skin elasticity over a 90-day period.Top Return
The skin care products by Gracieux Beauty that use horsetail as an ingredient are the Vitamin C Cleanser, the Vitamin C Eye Treatment, the Vitamin C Moisturizer and the Vitamin C Serum. Horsetail is a product that has been in nature for over 200 million years, way before humans walked this earth (humans appearing about 200,000 year ago). Traditional Chinese medicine called it “eyes of fire”. Back in ancient Chinese times, there use to be a common infection in the spring and horsetail tea was used to help fight the infection. There used to be forests of horsetails, sometimes going as 100 high feet. That was back before humans were around, most plants today are anywhere from 1-5 feet. There are different types of horsetail. A type of horsetail that is used for skin care products is called the equisetum arvense, which is different than the horsetail that is used for scouring. It typically grows in a natural, organic environment, that have moist soil, including meadows, fields and grasslands. Horsetail has a high concentration of silica, which it uses to make itself stiff and also prevents animals from eating it. It doesn’t need as much silica once it’s matured so usually better to harvest while it is still in growing mode. The green leaf shoots are commonly believed to be the most medicinal part of the plant. Silica is important for bone health and is one of the key ingredients for helping us grow collagen. Collagen is the underlying structure for our skin and as we age collagen breaks down and starts to decrease (somewhere in our midi to late 20’s), which is why it’s important for us to use products that assist with slowing down that natural collagen decrease. Using products that focus on these types of organic ingredients is important.Top Return

Rose Hip is an ingredient included in the Gracieux Beauty skin care products Vitamin C Cleanser and the Superfruits Masque. Rose hips occur naturally and are the seed pods of roses. Most of the time we don’t know they are there because of the pruning process to develop more flowers on the rose bush. If you did not prune a rose plant you would eventually see the seeds, looking like very small crabapples. The astringent quality of rose hip contributes to minimizing new wrinkles from appearing and has also been known for minimizing existing wrinkles. It can also help develop new skin cells. Because of the tightening affect it has on your skin it helps keep moisture in which quite often helps with very dry parts of our bodies, including elbows, heels and knees. It has also been used as an organic way to help with burns, acne and scars. Vitamin A is sometimes referred to as the “skin vitamin” and rose hip has a high quantity of Vitamin A. Using products with rose hip for an extended period of time may also help with the tone and texture of your skin.Top Return

Jojoba is included in multiple skin care products by Gracieux Beauty. These would include the Superfruits Masque and the Vitamin C Moisturizer.

The Native American’s used it for skin care and also as survival food when other foods were difficult to find. The jojoba shrub does not shed its leaves when the seasons change and it can grow up to 15 feet high. The oil that is used most of the time is pressed from the nuts (seeds) of the tree. While most people call it an oil, it’s actually a plant wax and has been used for thousands of years for medical purposes. It is very similar in consistency as sebum, which is a natural oil in our skins. Once applied to the skin it quickly absorbs and creates a protective shield around the skin cells, minimizing moisture loss from the skin. There are many reasons our skin loses moisture. When we wash our face, we strip away a portion of our sebum that keeps moisture in. We have all experienced when the cold or dry air dries out our skin. There are also antioxidants in Jojoba, these antioxidants can help with skin appearing old and wrinkled, as well as age spots. In addition to moisture and anti-aging benefits it can also help with controlling bacterial growth and soothing irritated skin.Top Return

Licorice is used in two Gracieux products, the Superfruits Masque and the Vitamin C Eye Treatment. Ancient China is one of the first known uses of licorice extract for its health benefits. The plant that contains the licorice root is called the glycyrrhiza glabra and the plant grows 3-7 feet tall in primarily Southern Europe and parts of Asia. Most of the time it is the root of the plant that is used for health and skin care benefits, which can lighten and brighten your skin's look. The anti-aging benefits come from the syrupy juice of the root. This syrup like substance can promote skin elasticity and fight inflammation as well as wrinkle formation. If you use a licorice extract for a longer period of time it has been known to fade dark spots and blemishes and lighten skin. Also important to anti-aging is licorice’s strong antioxidants which help with free radicals. There is another ingredient in licorice that helps regulate tyrosinase (which is the compound that helps manage the production of tyrosinase). When the production of tyrosinase is slowed down, melanin production is also slowed down resulting in fewer age spots. Licorice root is known to be very gentle so it works well with sensitive skin.Top Return
Gracieux Beauty’s skin care product, Vitamin C Serum, contains the witch hazel ingredient. This plant is grown naturally in North America. American Indians use to use witch hazel to fight swelling, infections and sores. Both the bark and leaves are used for medicinal purposes. It has powerful astringent capabilities which can help with inflammation, poison ivy, insect bites, blisters and more. It has strong antioxidant properties to help stop cellular damage which can cause wrinkles, dark spots and sagging skin. Our skin is our largest organ so when we are stressed it shows up in our skin in the form of puffiness, infections and inflammation. A strong antioxidant, like witch hazel, can help. An interesting side note is that quite often tattoo artists will clean a brand-new tattoo with witch hazel because it cleans the skin and also helps soothe the inflammation.

For those of you who live in cold climates, using witch hazel right after a shower can help keep the moisture in your skin.Top Return
Orange peel is included in multiple skin care products by Gracieux Beauty. These would include the Vitamin C Cleanser and Superfruits Masque. How many times have you peeled an orange, looking for a place to throw away the peel? If you’re like most of us, most of the time. As it turns out the orange peel can be better for your body than the orange itself. Every 100 grams of orange peels contain 136 milligrams of vitamin C, underneath the peel only has 70 milligrams/100 grams. The orange peel contains a lot of nutrients that are very good for our skin. The Chinese and those people living in the Amazon have used orange peel in their medicine for a long time. Orange peel extract is found in many skin care products. It’s outstanding for drying out oily skin and because of its antioxidants can help with acne as well. The antioxidants in orange peel lends an electron to the free radicals (which if we have too many can cause skin to age faster). By doing so it neutralizes the damage that the free radical can cause. An orange peel is loaded with these antioxidants. One effective way to minimize free radicals is to stay away from stimuli like ultraviolet light (part of the sun’s rays) and cigarette smoke.Top Return
