As skin ages, it produces less collagen and elastin (the key connective tissues that promote firm skin). Less of these tissues means more wrinkles and less elasticity. There’s a natural element to sagging skin, but many times skin loses its tightness if there is a sudden change of hormones or a rapid loss of weight. To combat these sudden changes in skin elasticity, firming creams were developed.
Firming creams are made up of ingredients that reduce inflammation, protect the skin against harmful UV rays, and restore skin cells to their natural state. Beauty companies have tried for many years to crack the code of firming creams, but they struggle to do so naturally and organically. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to create organic, sustainable products sourced from the Amazon Rainforest to combat aging, tighten, and firm your skin. We’ve tried and tested many ingredients of the Amazon and created our Wild Superfood Beauty Butter and our Wild Açaí Canna Cream as INCREDIBLE products to help firm your skin.
Top 5 Tried and Tested Firming Ingredients
Guaraná is a vascoconstrictor, which means it reduces puffiness and smooths the skin, creating a youthful glow. Guaraná has anti-aging and toning properties and is often used as a treatment for stretch marks given its theophylline and caffeine components.
2. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that revitalizes and promotes a natural regeneration for the skin. Vitamin C is also a powerful protectant against the harmful UV rays of the sun, and it occurs naturally in many fruits. Look for Vitamin C in our Raw Maracúja oil.
3. Argan Plant Cells
Argan plant cells (and other plant cells) replace damaged skin cells instead of repairing them. Clinical studies performed on healthy volunteers showed that Argan stimulates the regeneration of skin connective tissue, helps the skin to regain its firmness, and significantly reduces wrinkle depth in crow’s feet area.
4. Malic Acid
Found naturally in the body and derived from apples, malic acid balances pH levels in the skin and boosts the immune system. You will find malic acid in most firming products, including our Wild Superfood Beauty Butter and our Wild Açaí Canna Cream.
5. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is similar to Vitamin C in that it protects the skin from UV rays. Vitamin E is crucial to our health and wellness, both inside and out. Vitamin E reduces inflammation, protects the skin against inflammation, and smooths skin imperfections.
Instead of synthesizing these ingredients, we use natural, organic, and time-tested whole ingredients from the Amazon Rainforest. Utilized for centuries by Native Amazonians, our ingredients have been passed down for generations. Not only do these ingredients stand the test of time, but they are organic, sustainable, and rooted in culture.
