Wright Family Age Wright Face Lotion
Before I describe our latest face lotion product - Age-Wright Face Lotion, I thought I would describe how this product came to life. As the owner of Wright Family Products, I try to use only organic or all-natural skin care products (with the exceptions of a few makeup items which are basically impossible to get in an organic or all-natural format). My friends were beginning to have “botox parties” and I got an invitation. My first thought was “Why would they invite me to a botox party…I don’t have wrinkles!” My second thought was “I am way TOO young for botox!” Full disclosure… at the time of writing this I am 37 years old (I was born in 1977). My third thought was “I would probably be the 1 in 100 that had a horrible reaction and my skin would fall off.” (Clearly that is not a reaction but just me being a bit “over dramatic.” So – after I rationalized why I thought I did NOT need botox, I took a careful look in the mirror. “OMG – maybe I DO need botox – I have wrinkles!” I am not sure what face I was looking at before, but clearly I had wrinkles and they needed addressed STAT. So – I went out in search for an anti-aging wrinkle cream as I still did not want to do botox. For starters, they are VERY expensive AND secondly, they are filled with chemicals and preservatives. I decided to try a sample and took it home. That night I applied it onto my wrinkles around my eyes and it instantly burned. I read other reviews on the product that said it burned their skin but that they felt the burning was a sign of it was working. Note to self – your skin should not burn. That is not a good sign, ever. So – very long story short – I did not want to apply those chemicals/preservatives to my precious facial skin and so I decided to do some investigation to make my own anti-aging/wrinkle solution….hence the birth of Age-Wright Face Lotion.
I did a TON of research online as well as in my Essential Oils book collection for what the best essential oils were for toning and tightening our precious facial skin. The information below was obtained from some of my own Essential Oils books. So – why did I choose the ingredients I did – below is a brief explanation:
I started with a base of extra virgin organic coconut oil which is full of anti-oxidant vitamin E making it one of the healthiest oils for your skin and body. Coconut oil not only helps to reduce the signs of aging but it is also known for strengthening the epidermis (which helps fight against cellulite) as well as the ability to fade stretch marks and other skin discolorations. As an added bonus, coconut oil has a natural SPF of 2 - 8.
Next we added frankincense essential oil which is known to promote regeneration of healthy cells while keeping your existing cells and tissues healthy. It is also known to help eliminate sun spots, reduce the appearance of scars, reduce/remove those pesky facial wrinkles as well as tone and tighten. By replacing the old icky dying cells, frankincense essential oil can keep you looking beautiful by regenerating healthy new skin cells. So – if frankincense can magically tighten up our sagging skin, even our skin tone and balance our skin’s pH, why not add it as the #1 essential oil in our Age-Wright Face Lotion. (Plus how cool is it that it was one of the gifts that the 3 wise men brought to baby Jesus – it has clearly been highly regarded for years and years!)
Our next ingredient we add is rose essential oil. It is also known to be an excellent essential oil for both anti-aging as well as dry skin in general. It is super gentle which is perfect for those with dry or sensitive skin yet powerful enough to help with circulation, ultimately improving your overall skin condition. How cool is that?? (Plus – it smells AMAZING!)
Our final ingredient is Lavender Essential Oil. We also use Lavender essential oil in our regular face lotion as it is absolutely AWESOME for our skin. It is known to be a natural antiseptic and detoxifier as well as contributing to the healing process by stimulating skin cells helping them to regenerate more quickly, all while promoting healing and preventing scaring.
To apply, place a very small amount (less than a pea size) in your hand. The warmth of your hands will allow the lotion to soften and thus be applied sparingly in the morning and/or night for incredibly soft and beautiful skin.
Store your organic face lotion in a cool place (Coconut Oil melts at temperatures above 76 degrees). If the lotion liquefies due to higher temperatures, simply place your lotion in the refrigerator and it will magically harden again.
