How does the balm differ from the oil and serum?
The Rosalux premium balm is free from preservatives and water which maks it a very stable product. It is firm at room temperature and softens on contact with the skin. It is rich in valuable fat soluble vitamins (vitamins A and E) as well as many essential fatty acids. The intense colour of the balm is because the oils are unrefined and not heat treated or bleached thus retaining the natural essential fatty acids. The shea butter, jojoba ester and lemon wax provide a protective barrier to the skin, reducing transepidermal water loss, which is important for inflammed conditions.
As the balm is really concentrated a little goes a long way and to get the best effect Wendy recomends applying last thing at night so your skin can absorb all the nurients. Add a tiny amount to the top of your hands last thing at night as well so you can breathe in the soothing rose aroma and also provide some healing protection to work weary hands.
Should I use both a balm and the rose surge oil or serum
Generally you may alternatie or use the balm as a treat every few nights. the oil is light enough for day and night use. By applying the serum first then then balm you are doubling the antiageing effects as the barrier actionof teh balm helps lock in the active ingredients in the serum. Apply the serum to warm skin and let absorb then a few minutes cover with a layer of balm.
Help my balm has melted!
Thats ok- all fats melt at various temperatures and shea butter melts at around 35 degrees so if your balm has been left in a warm or sunny spot such as a window sill it may melt. This may cause the lemon wax to seperate out as it has a higher melting point and may form tiny white specks in the balm. This is Ok- to reset your balm pop in the fridge and store away from direct heat or light. The tiny white specks will melt when applied to the skin. As long as water doesnt get into the product it will not be contaminated.
Will my balm go off since it doesnt' have a preservative?
The naturally occuring Vitamin E present in the black currant and hempseed oil help protect the balm from rancidity. This occurs as fixed carrier oils oxidise and 'go off'. Every oil has a shelf life and the balm is no different. with careful storage away from heat and light the balm would last up to two years however Wendy recommends using within one year. it is hand made in small batches so you can be assured you are always buying fresh product.
