L'algoderme [Algoderm Base Mask]
A creamy mask with mineral-rich algae, its mineral content stabilizes moisture in the skin. Moisture from deep within the skin's layers is drawn to the surface through the use of Algoderme Base Cream.
L'alguessence bain [Algae-Essence Bath]
Algae-Essence Bath is a potent and therapeutic bath additive made of algae concentrates, plankton and marine minerals to hydrate, mineralize, and promote vital energy balance. It is composed of a strong mix of natural essential oils which gives this additive its potency and exceptional properties.
In ancient Greek mythology the philosophers and poets wrote about Gaia, also known as the Earth Goddess, and they recognized the enormous vital importance of thalassa, the sea, as the source of all life. We bring this concept into PHYTO5's Algae-Essence Bath additive which regulates superficial circulation and inhibits fluid retention (heavy legs). It's very beneficial in a bath before bedtime.
Violet Clay is a mineral-rich cleansing and purifying kaolin clay infused with a number of natural essential oils in a formulation designed to nourish and revitalize. It is excellent for balancing vital energy.
L'émulsion d'huiles végétales [Vegetal Oil Emulsion]
VOE is a delicate vegetal base and very viscous, neutral moisturizer. Many people call it the queen of PHYTO5 skincare. An excellent approach to hydration, VOE is an ultra-light fluid with a silky soft feel. Quickly absorbed, it restores suppleness to the skin in seconds and is the embodiment of simplicity and speed.
L'huile de massage arnica-lavande [Arnica-Lavender Massage Oil]
Arnica Lavender oil softens the skin and offers many other benefits such as inflammation and pain relief. Arnica extract is well known for centuries as an effective natural analgesic. Arnica Lavender Massage Oil is recommended for use after sports or when relaxation is needed.
Nourishing, moisturizing, energizing, toning, anti-inflammatory and aphrodisiacal, this massage oil is recommended for physically or mentally fatigued people. Its synergistic blend of essential oils creates a mental effect of courage, optimism and elevated mood.
L'huile de massage zen [Zen Massage Oil–Organic Certified]
While softening the skin it also calms and relaxes the client–both physically and mentally–uplifts mood and demeanor, helps relieve anxiety, soothes inflammation and irritation, works to eliminate fat and helps to defy the signs of aging because of its high antioxidant content.
Zen Massage Oil is wonderful for inducing higher levels of concentration, self-confidence and well-being.
L'oligo 5 [Oligo 5 Trace Mineral Spray]
Proper mineralization is vital to more mature skin and skin showing signs of aging which is why we offer Oligo 5 as a sensible add-on product. Oligo 5 is a 100% natural origin mineral delivery spray for the skin. 'Oligo' comes from the Greek 'oligoi,' meaning few or containing a relatively small number of units. In this case, these units are manganese, cobalt, zinc, magnesium and copper (plus algae) in PHYTO5's 100% natural origin Oligo5 sensational product.
It is natural that as we age or live in stressful environmental conditions, our body's very necessary mineralization for youth begins to suffer. Certain minerals are needed to hold hydration in the skin and if they are missing in the body, all the creams in the world won't help. Without an effective mineral delivery such as the proprietary formula found in Oligo 5, skin can't be properly or adequately hydrated.
Apply Oligo 5 daily to face and neck after cleansing and toning and before cream. Oligo 5 keeps scalp better hydrated and hair soft, glossy and voluminous when applying after shampoo and conditioner.
