If you aspire to purify your skin and hair care regimen, this dynamic duo of blue lotus oil with Australian grown jojoba oil is a game-changer.
Revered for its rich cultural heritage, the blue lotus flower was cherished in ancient Egypt as a traditional remedy, used for medicine, rituals, and cosmetics since 3000BC.
HOW IS ACALA STEM'S BLUE LOTUS OIL SO POWERFUL FOR SKINCARE?
Just like the rest of our body, our skin thrives on clean ingredients. Our bodies absorb all ingredients in fresh plant-based foods, and our skin is no exception.
Blue Lotus is a highly concentrated bioactive botanical, revered by alchemists since 3000BC for its healing and anti-ageing properties.
It's thanks to these 3 potent flavonoids in blue lotus oil: quercetin, kaempferol, and myricetin.
1. Quercetin is known for repairing damaged or irritated skin caused by make up and chemical-based skincare products and other synthetics. It stimulates collagen production, which helps to keep the skin firm and smooth. Quercetin can also help to protect the skin from sun damage.
2. Kaempferol was found throughout research to have an anti-inflammatory effect.
3. Myricetin in blue lotus can slow the collagen degradation, preserving the skin’s plumpness and firmness.
HOW IS ACALA STEM'S
BLUE LOTUS OIL DIFFERENT
FROM THE OTHERS?
Many blue lotus oil products smell different. That's due to quality, and other hidden synthetic fragrances.
The best way to determine quality and therefore effectiveness of blue lotus oil and jojoba oil is the price. If it's cheaper, its quality is much poorer. High quality blue lotus essential or absolute oil from the most reputable glowers is expensive, even at cost price.
Another way to distinguish blue lotus oil and jojoba oil quality is how it makes you feel. If it just gives you a headache, it's not pure blue lotus oil. I am very sensitive to smell, and all synthetic fragrances give me a headache. Our blue lotus is the only blue lotus product that doesn't ever give me a headache.
HOW ACALA STEM'S BLUE LOTUS FACE OIL CAN BENEFIT SKIN AND HAIR
Our Australian jojoba oil is rich in vitamins and minerals and has anti-inflammatory properties for soothing irritated skin. It’s perfect for all skin types, including sensitive and oily skin.
An antioxidant feast for your skin
Antioxidants keep your skin hydrated, as well as omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids, which provide elasticity to keep its youthful glow. It also contains vitamins A, D and E, which work to reduce inflammation while leaving your skin refreshed.
The world's best make up primer
Any foundation can become a flawless canvas, transcending to photo-ready perfection. Jojoba oil mimics the same natural oils found in healthy skin; therefore, the skin absorbs nutrients extremely well. Other oils can just clog pores and cause acne.
ARE LOTUS FLOWER AND BLUE LOTUS FLOWER THE SAME?
No, they’re actually quite different.
The lotus flower is a botanical with thick, oval leaves that grow in clusters on long stalks. The most popular is the sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) – Acala Stem’s fabrics and bath tea are made from this lotus plant.
The blue lotus flower is a water lily that grows in shallow lakes and ponds across Asia and Africa. These flowers are often used in traditional medicine because of their anti-inflammatory properties and ability to lower blood pressure.
OTHER INCREDIBLE HEALTH BENEFITS OF BLUE LOTUS
The main active compounds in blue lotus oil are apomorphine and nuciferine. These two alkaloids are responsible for the plant’s anxiety-relieving effects. Apomorphine is a compound that acts as a dopamine agonist, meaning it can produce feelings of happiness and calm. Nuciferine relaxes muscle cells and prevents muscle contractions. It also has a calming effect.
Studies have shown that blue lotus extract can help to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, and boost cognitive function. The plant’s sedative effects make it an effective natural treatment for insomnia and other sleep disorders. Blue lotus extract is known to have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.
