It’s one of the heroes in the new BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL SKIN CARE Calming Face Oil: the Inca nut. The gentle Inca Inchi oil does not only mitigate irritations, it also activates new renewal mechanisms and makes the skin more elastic and radiant.
A star is born
The Inca nut grows as a herbaceous creeper in the rainforests of the Peruvian Andes – at an altitude of 500 to 1000 m. That’s how it gained its nickname “mountain peanut”. Its appearance already shows that it’s a real star: after bursting, the seed capsules look star-shaped, similar to star anise. They contain oily “nuts” which, from a botanical perspective, are simply seeds. The oil gained from the nuts is traditionally used as cosmetics. In its home country Peru, the plant has already been valued for its high nutritional value for over 3,000 years.
In the cosmetics industry, several characteristics of the Inca Inchi oil are of particular interest. First of all, it has a particularly anti-inflammatory effect and helps against skin impurities. This works for young and complicated skin – but also mature skin loves the ingredient: it’s an insider tip against “inflammaging“.
”Extra dry“ – never again!
With its high vitamin E content, Inca Inchi improves the complexion. It also supplies the skin with valuable lipids and has a moisturizing effect which makes it the perfect skincare product for dry skin. Psst: Inca Inchi oil can make chapped lips supple again and even hair can become shiny thanks to the Inca nut.
Team player Inca nut
In our Calming Face Oil, Inca Inchi oil joins forces with jojoba oil, sesame oil and cork oak extract. This special mix supplies the skin with a burst of moisture, increases the skin’s elasticity and supports the skin in case of irritations. Keep calm and see your skin happy!
Mix it, baby
To apply this brilliant mixture, simply squeeze a few drops out of the dropper bottle by pushing the button and, for example, mix it with your favorite cream. However, the Calming Face Oil on its own is also a real treat for all skin types, in particular for sensitive skin.
