Oils and extracts that work as wrinkle prevenatives and line smoothers

I have been researching quiet a lot on this subject. Thats how I came about to buy custard apple and papaya extracts and thats how I started making creams with milk. I want to offer people natural alternative to the commercial creams, which dont put enough of the active ingredients for them to have a big impact.

Essential oils that are combating wrinkles are:

Violet Leaf, Frankincense, Clary Sage
Myrrh, Fennel, Lemon
Neroli, Hyssop, Rose
Carrot, Galbanum, Oregano
Lavender, Orange, Thyme
Vervaine, Patchouli, Rosemary
Yarrow, Palma Rosa, Chamomile German

Some of these oils dont really literally work on the lines, but we all know that by feeling happy and good about ourselves - we look younger. They do just that - lift up our spirits and wake up our minds.

Its my opinion that its better to prevent something by moisturizing every day than to cure it. But even if you think its too late - its really not. Its just going to take longer time and not so high expectations - dont expect Botox results :-)

So, here is the short description of the extracts:

- Custard Apple Extract is rich in alpha-hydroxy acid, which refines and rejuvenates the skin. It is best known for it’s moisturizing and anti-aging properties, making it perfect for dry or mature skin. It also has exceptional elastase inhibition activity, making it suitable for treatments aimed at maintaining the skin’s youthful elasticity.

- Papaya Extract is excellent in stabilizing oily skin & working as an exfoliant on dry areas. Papaya also is often used in skin products for the purpose of a natural lift & rejuvenation of the skin. Papaya contains Vitamin A, a property that benefits skin repair through increasing the rate of new cell formation. Vitamin C is also an anti-oxidant with wonderful proteins for smoother, softer skin.

- An excellent exfoliant, milk contains natural alpha hydroxy acids, which help to gently slough off dead skin cells. In addition, milk helps to reduce redness and soothe irritated skin.

- The cucumber peel extract and green tea extract are both natural sunscreens and give the skin a little cool feeling while nourishing it with vitamins and anti-oxidants. It is also said that green tea can help with minor cuts, burns and wounds.

I decided to place them in groups of 20, 30, 40.....for now, I have creams for over 20 and for over 30:

I forgot my court jury duty thingie!!! head have been sooo wrapped around these creams and my store and what not, that I totally forgot that last Wednesday I was suppose o show up at the county's court building for that jury summoning! Damn it!

Now first thing Monday I have to call and explain myself and hopefully I am not in trouble :-(

Another dumb thing - I didnt even need to make all those creams ahead of time!!!! Duuuhhhhh! I could have just made the base I needed, take some interesting pix and list them that way...then add fragrance as they are ordered. Now I am almost out of 50 jars and had to order more...yikes!!!

Enough of bad luck brain is really empty this week :-(
