WHY CHOOSE GALEN BOTANICALS NATURAL REMEDIES?

 Galen Botanicals chemical-free, natural products contain protective essential oils, plant oils, and botanical extracts that regenerate and revitalize the skin. These precious substances are scientifically found to lock in moisture, combat free radical-induced damage, and protect against infectious invaders.

 

NOURISH AND HYDRATE WITH ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

Galen Botanicals products contain organic extra virgin olive oil, an ideal emollient base ingredient. This silky smooth and deeply moisturizing oil is rich in vitamins A and E, monounsaturated fatty acids and polyphenol antioxidants. Olive oil's potent compounds such as oleocanthol, oleuropein, oleic acid, hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol and squalene can protect against skin aging, promote skin regeneration and prevent skin infections. Olive oil antioxidants protect skin from free radical damage that results from pollution, oxygen, and sunlight. Since squalene is one of the principal hydrocarbons contained in the skin, olive oil is absorbed quickly and efficiently deep into the skin, replenishing the skin's natural moisture barrier. Olive oil restores healthy suppleness and flexibility to the skin without leaving an oily residue.

 

APPLE STEM CELLS FOR YOUTHFUL SKIN 

All natural, potent apple stem cells from the Swiss Alpines are clinically shown to regenerate skin cells, protect skin cells from UV light damage and aging, and reduce fine lines and deep wrinkles with a tightening facelift effect. Apple Stem Cells contain phospholipids that keep skin firm, taut and moisturized. 

 

HYALURONIC ACID BOOSTS COLLAGEN AND SKIN SUPPLENESS 

Hyaluronic Acid is naturally present in the skin but its content decreases with aging resulting in wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. Applying Hyaluronic Acid to the skin helps support collagen structure and provide superior hydration. It boosts skin suppleness with an immediate ultra-plumping effect.

 

PROTECT AND SOFTEN WITH JOJOBA OIL

Produced from the seeds of the jojoba plant, jojoba oil's unique chemical composition is similar to human sebum - a waxy substance secreted by the skin's sebaceous glands. Jojoba oil protects, softens and restores skin to its natural pH balance.

 

ROSE FOR SMOOTHER, SOFTER SKIN

Rose oil is well-known for its moisturizing and antimicrobial benefits and beautiful aroma. Rose oil provides antioxidant protection for optimal skin care by counteracting the effects of aging and keeping skin soft and supple. It can penetrate the skin and improve the skin's moisture barrier. Rose oil scent has been shown to have antidepressive, anti-stress and anti-anxiety properties.

 

ROSE HIP - NATURE'S RETINOL

Rose hip seed oil is a natural source of tretinoin (a vitamin A retinoid) and known as nature's Retin-A (rather than synthetic retinol). Retinoids work on a molecular level because skin cells contain retinoid receptors. Studies show retinoids improve skin texture, reduce dark spots, decrease collage breakdown and stimulate collagen production. 

 

MOISTURIZE WITH LANOLIN

Derived from sheep's wool, lanolin oil is nearly identical to our skin's naturally occuring oils. It is composed of non-ionic, hydrophilic fatty acids that pass freely and easily to the deepest layers of the skin's epidermis. Lanolin protects the cells that act as the epidermis barrier, which prevents moisture depletion, yet also allows breathing for an unrivaled and lasting moisturizing effect.

 

WILD GREEK OREGANO TO THE RESCUE

One of nature's most powerful germicidals, Wild Greek Oregano oil prevents and treats fungal, bacterial, viral, mold and yeast infections. Studies have shown Wild Greek Oregano's main active ingredient, carvacrol, is highly effective in destroying fungus responsible for causing athlete's foot and fungal nail conditions.

 

TEA TREE OIL FROM DOWN UNDER 

Tea Tree oil has been widely studied in Australian research and shown to effectively prevent and treat fungal, bacterial and viral infection. Tea Tree's active terpenoids can alleviate inflammation and help wound healing by encouraging tissue regeneration.

 

FULL SPECTRUM HEMP CBD FOR HOLISTIC WELLNESS 

CBD is the nonpsychoactive chemical compound found in hemp plants and has been linked to a number of physical and mental health benefits, including relieving pain and inflammation as well as reducing the symptoms of anxiety and depression. Galen Botanical's products are made from full spectrum CBD which includes additional beneficial compounds from the hemp plant, compared to other products that contain just the isolated CBD compound.

 

ARNICA NATURAL PAIN RELIEF Arnica Natural Pain Relief

Arnica montana flower extract has been used for centuries to relieve pain, swelling, bruising and stiffness.

 

SOOTHING POWER OF LAVENDER

One of nature's most powerful substances for soothing, moisturizing and detoxifying is lavender oil. The benefits of using lavender oil on the skin include healing wounds (cuts, sores, abrasions, ulcers), preventing bacterial colonization, treating fungal infections, combating acne, eczema and psoriasis, preventing skin cancer, and countering the damaging effects of UV radiation (photo-aging).

WHY AVOID PETROLEUM-BASED AND MINERAL OIL SKINCARE PRODUCTS?

Commercial skincare creams and lotions such as Eucerin, Vaseline and Lubriderm contain petroleum and mineral oils derived from crude oil. Companies like Olay and Neutrogena skincare products contain parabens, chemicals with estrogen-like properties. Although considered toxic contaminants, they are ubiquitous in skincare products because petroleum and mineral oils are inexpensive fillers materials and parabens are used as preservatives.

 

PETROLEUM AND MINERAL OIL CAN'T BE METABOLIZED

Studies show petroleum and mineral oils are considered toxic contaminants. When petroleum and mineral oil toxic contaminants are absorbed into the system they do not metabolize and accumulate in human fat.

 

PETROLEUM AND MINERAL OIL LINKED TO ESTROGEN DOMINANCE

Petroleum and mineral oils are classified as xenoestrogens, substances that produce harmful hormonal effects. Studies show long-term exposure to petroleum derived skincare products is linked to estrogen dominance and increases hormonal imbalances. Estrogen dominance is a common condition in which individuals have a high ratio of estrogen hormone with little or no progesterone hormone to balance its effects.

 

PETROLEUM AND MINERAL OIL DON'T ALLOW SKIN TO BREATHE

Petroleum and mineral oil are "occlusive" agents—meaning they seal off the skin from air, water or anything else getting in (or out). They form an invisible film on the surface that blocks the pores and the skin's natural respiration process. They don't allow moisture to be absorbed from the atmosphere or from other beneficial ingredients.

 

PARABENS ARE HORMONE DISRUPTORS

Many commerical skincare products contain toxic chemicals such as paraben, a hormone disruptor. Studies found paraben is present in breast cancer tissues.
