I’m a mom, and as moms all over can agree, our children sometimes incite our push to make changes we wouldn’t necessarily expend energy for otherwise. Moms are a force everywhere. This week I had the pleasure of trying an amazing Toner developed by a mom whose mission was to develop toxin-free skincare because of the skin issues her infant daughter was facing.
In 2001 Rebecca Wachsler‘s eighteen month old daughter developed eczema. After seeking help through conventional medical advice, she quickly found that the only option presented to her was to subject her young daughter to steroids and other harmful chemicals. Rebecca decided to look elsewhere, and after a lot of research and legwork on her part, AEGEIA skincare was born in her kitchen. AEGEIA Skin Care products became available to the public in 2008. They now have a state-of-the-art laboratory and production facility.
AEGEIA uses amazing Essential Oils in all of their formulations. Essential Oils are obtained from a wide assortment of plants, which have been steam distilled or cold-pressed from flowers, fruit, bark, and roots. The technique of expressing and using essential oils has been around for thousands of years. Using pure essential oils can help ease a wide assortment of ailments. After penetrating the skin via the hair follicles and sweat glands, the oils are able to not only help kill bacteria and viruses, but also stimulate the body’s immune system, strengthening resistance against further attack.
AEGEIA Skincare Refining Facial Toner contains Ho Wood Essential Oil. Ho Wood is also reported to have anti-depressant, anti-microbial, anti-septic, aphrodisiac, and bactericidal properties. Ho Wood Essential oil is deeply nourishing and supportive to the immune system. This amazing formula also contains Tea Tree Essential Oil for antiseptic properties that leave skin thoroughly refreshed, with a clean finish as well as Witch Hazel Hydrosol for pore-refining and true toning. AEGEIA Skin Care Refining Facial Toner is an alcohol-free toner that will not dry and irritate skin.
This product comes in a pretty brown bottle with a spray pump, which I like for a toner as I prefer to spray my face then swab off with a cotton pad. The fragrance of this product is pleasant, and smells very natural. My cotton pad was disgustingly brown after use, showing me the dirt and oil this toner effectively removes. My skin was left feeling clean and fresh. At a retail price point of $17, this product is so affordable. If you are looking for 100% natural Toner, I think you will be pleased to try AEGEIA Skincare Refining Facial Toner!
