< BACK TO PRODUCT LIST
Description

IHME is an intensive care essence that strengthens the skin’s vitality with impressive results. The balancing effect of acids and mild exfoliation gives your skin an exceptional amount of brightness and moisture at the same time.

IHME contains a moderate level of acids but works wonders on the skin. The natural acids of hibiscus flower extract and lactic acid make the skin soft, glowy and plump. It evens color and smoothes out impurities and blemishes.

The active ingredients of IHME are ginkgo biloba leaf extract, mulberry root extract and peony flower  extract – all considered as the nobility of herbs in Chinese Medicine. Ginkgo biloba contains over 40 active components that act as antioxidants. Ginkgo biloba boosts the microcirculation, flushes away toxins and soothes the skin effectively.

Mulberry extract and peony extract are both rich in antioxidants. They prevent pigmentation actively, protect the skin from free radicals and comfort inflammation. Finnish betaine moisturizes the skin effectively. Plant-based propanediol provides optimal penetration of the active ingredients.

Although IHME brings indescribable glow and supernatural vitality to your skin, its effectiveness is not a mystery. It’s all based on botanical wisdom. One of the main ingredients of IHME is the uncompromising formulation that raises above the ordinary.

The nature itself is a miraculous wonder. You are a part of it. Remember to wonder and honor the beauty that grows wild in you.

In the Finnish language, IHME is a miraculous wonder – a mysterious event that represents supernatural forces and doesn’t follow the laws of nature. IHME Botanical Wonder Essence does follow the laws of nature in their very essence. We just consider them miracles as such, waiting to be combined. That’s what we call botanical magic.

Product size 50 ml.

Product information

IHME Botanical Wonder Essence provides the perfect combination of gentle exfoliation, deep moisturization and pH balancing. The acid content of the product (6.4%) is moderate yet effective, and is formed from hibiscus flower extract and lactic acid. Hibiscus flower extract acids exfoliate the skin as effectively as AHA acids, but are less irritating. They enhance the regeneration of skin cells, remove dead cells from the surface of the skin, improve the elasticity of the stratum corneum, balance the sebum secretions of the skin, smooth out fine lines, improve moisture content and brighten skin tone. The exfoliating effect is enhanced by lactic acid, an AHA acid, which deepens the stratum corneum of the skin and effectively moisturizes dry, dehydrated and ageing skin.

IHME exfoliates gently and is suitable for normal to thicker skin for daily use periodically. For sensitive and thinner skin, it is effective if used 2–3 times a week. In addition to its exfoliating effect, IHME effectively moisturizes and brightens the skin. It makes the skin clear and smooths fine lines as well as unevenness.

The pH of IHME is 3.6, which supports the exfoliating effect of the product and balances the pH of the skin’s hydrolipid film. The pH of healthy skin is between 3.8-5.8. In most instances of skin imbalance, such as acne, atopic dermatitis and rosacea, the pH of the skin is elevated.

Use

Apply the essence onto clean skin a few times a week. Avoid the skin around the eyes. Finish with Yin Your Skin SILEÄ  facial oil. The product is suitable for normal, oily, thick and ageing skin for daily use periodically and for thin or sensitive skin 2-3 times a week as an additional product.

Ingredients

Ginkgo biloba contains more than 40 active components that act as antioxidants. Ginkgo biloba extract protects the skin from cell damage caused by free radicals, enhances microcirculation, removes waste products, brightens and moisturizes the skin, soothes inflammation and reduces redness.

Hibiscus flowers naturally contain a variety of AHA acids (citric, malic and tartaric acids), and hibiscus and pyruvic acids, which belong to the family of alpha-keto acids, i.e. AKA acids. The extract stimulates skin cell regeneration, enhances the exfoliation of dead cells from the skin’s surface, improves the elasticity of the stratum corneum, balances the skin’s sebum secretion, smooths fine lines, improves moisture levels and brightens the skin.

White mulberry root extract is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, protecting the skin from free radicals, signs of premature ageing and the side effects of excessive UV radiation. In addition, it evens out skin tone and prevents the formation of pigment spots due to the arbutin it contains, which inhibits the activity of the tyrosinase enzyme involved in melanin formation. Mulberry root extract also effectively soothes irritations and redness caused by environmental stressors.

Peony flower extract is rich in flavonoids and tannins that protect the skin from oxidative stress and prevent inflammation. The extract soothes irritated and reddened skin and evens out skin tone.

Lactic acid is AHA or alpha hydroxy acid. It has a higher molecular weight than glycolic acid and is not absorbed quite as deeply, so it does not cause irritation as easily. Lactic acid moisturises and brightens the skin effectively and is also found naturally in the skin’s Natural Moisturising Factor, which is created by the keratinization process. At concentrations of 5% or more, lactic acid acts as an exfoliating agent. It is especially good for dull, dehydrated, dry skin and mature skin.
