Individual product ingredients for Edna’s creams, oils and foundations are listed under the ingredients tab within each product description.
Ocean Kelp & Seaweed
Seaweed is becoming increasingly popular for its hydrating and nourishing properties. Certain seaweeds contain a full antioxidant chain of vitamin E, C, and Beta Carotene, as well as minerals and trace elements. Research indicates that seaweed may be highly effective in synthesizing collagen. Seaweed also inhibits the breakdown of the elasticity of the skin.
Titanium Dioxide, one of the best sunscreens available
Titanium Dioxide is a mineral that reflects the light from the skin rather than absorbing it. As a result, it thoroughly protects your skin from harmful UVA and UVB sun rays (most products only protect against UVA rays). As an added bonus, the reflected light gives the skin a subtle, youthful glow. Enjoy SPF 20 protection daily when using Edna Velvetone. Available in eight shades.
Edna Royal Elixir is a natural exfoliate which uses the safe enzyme papain,’ derived from the papaya plant, to dissolve dead skin cells. Many exfoliates today use acids to remove the top layer of skin. This process can burn delicate skin tissue, which can cause scarring, and can leave your skin acutely sensitive to the sun. Edna Royal Elixir helps prepare the skin for moisturizing by eliminating dead skin cells, which can block the hydration process. By using Edna Royal Elixir daily you will see a fresher, younger looking skin.
This product is a rare tropical oil made from the fran-j-pani flower. Polynesians, who were known for their beautiful skin, used this special oil to keep their skin soft and healthy. Many customers use it as a weekly facial treatment. The fran-j-pani oil is also known for its intense healing properties. Marvelous for burns, bug bites, scrapes and cuts, the oil was referred to as “pink magic” by people on the islands.
Vitamin E is considered an antioxidant superstar, and is effective against aging. This is why you’ll find 10,000 units of vitamin E in every ounce of Edna Vitamin E Oil. Not only does it protect skin from sun damage, but can also treat pre-existing damage from the sun. It can also be used to nourish and soften your cuticles, and eliminate age spots. Edna Vitamin E Oil can also be used as a hot oil treatment to relieve dry hair, making it more manageable. This amazing vitamin is also found in the Vitone Body Moisturizer.
Lanolin has long been known as an effective emollient and skin moisturizer. Edna uses only Triple-Refined Lanolin, which is contaminant free, and is more easily absorbed into the skin. It protects the natural oils in the skin, helping the skin stay hydrated throughout the day, and promotes healing. The oil comes from sheep’s wool and is extracted after shearing. This is why the sheep shearers were known for their soft hands.
Beeswax is known for its healing properties. Edna is proud to use the finest quality beeswax rather than the more commonly used and lesser quality paraffin products.
Essential oils can stimulate circulation, which helps to improve skin tone. Many essential oils have antibacterial properties, which help fight adult and teenage acne, and fungal infections. Some oils can help with healing and can reduce scarring, as well as benefiting dry, flaky, and aging skin. Even the fragrance from essential oils can sooth your spirits and provide a cheerful, calming effect. At Edna, these oils assist with the preservation of our skin care products.
The essential oils used by Edna Skin Care include lemon, mint, jasmine, lavender, lilac, and rose. Lemon is high in vitamins A, B and C, and is an astringent. Jasmine is a gentle anti-inflammatory and can sooth irritated and inflamed skin; all skin types can benefit from using Jasmine. Lavender is an antiseptic and disinfectant, and helps heal eczema, acne, and psoriasis. Rose has anti-inflammatory properties and is a soothing treatment for dry and itchy skin. It can also tone a tired complexion.
We use the finest quality essential oils for the greatest possible benefit to our customers. We do not use perfumes, extracts or chemical imitations.
Herbs are the oldest natural form of medicine. We steep our skin freshener in 55 herbs for a week to infuse the healing properties into the liquid. The herbs we use are anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, and are very healing for the skin.
