Miss Lily’s Swellegant Moisturising Cream

Certified-organic Camellia Oil & unrefined Shea Butter, with therapeutic-grade Ylang Ylang, Lavender & German Chamomile essential oils. – 50 g

 

Miss Lily’s Swellegant Moisturising Cream is a treat for those who love a velvety feel and exotic floral scent in their moisturiser. We selected the fast- and deep-absorbing camellia oil for this cream because of its reputation as a highly restorative, rejuvenating, moisture-retaining and hypo-allergenic carrier oil. Shea butter is added as a superior active moisturiser to help protect and soothe your skin. Essential oils of ylang ylang and lavender, tempered with German chamomile, give this cream its enticing exotic fragrance.

The essential oil of ylang ylang, the “flower of flowers”, is used in skin care to balance the skin and is said to help repair blemishes, such as redness from broken capillaries, and help fight acne. Its aroma is believed to inspire a positive mood, relieving anxiety and depression, and to aid relaxation. Lavender essential oil is appreciated for its reputed antiseptic properties and is said to soothe dry skin, including eczema- and psoriasis-prone skin. While lavender is also valued as a staple among connoisseurs of essential oils for its reputation as a healing agent, German chamomile in particular is one of the most prized oils for its supposed cleansing and curative qualities. Overall, the combination of these three oils makes for a preparation that aims to be soothing, rejuvenating and anti-aging.

If you are looking for a comprehensive day & night moisturiser combination, we recommend pairing Miss Lily’s Swellegant Cream for your mornings with Miss Lily’s ‘Smarvellous Moisturising Cream for your nights.

Although both are specially formulated for dry and sensitive skin, they do provide benefits for all skin types.

All the oils in this product are certified-organic. The essential oils are therapeutic-grade. We use unrefined, fair-trade, certified-organic shea butter.

We use certified-organic, vegetable-based and palm-oil free glycerin. As this is a water-oil-based cream, we use Emulsifier O (cetearyl olivate & sorbitan olivate), which is derived from olives, and we use Geogard 221 (benzyl alcohol & dehydroacetic acid) as a preservative (a must-do in any cosmetics containing water), which is approved for use in organic products. Both are Ecocert approved.

We hope that in the future we will be able to obtain eco-certification for our products, so please support us on our journey, and let us know all your feedback.

What's in a name?

Swellegant (adj.): wonderful, marvelous; a portmanteau of “elegant” and “swell”; first used by composer and songwriter Cole Porter around the 1930s and immortalised by his song “Well Did You Evah!”, originally written for his 1936 musical DuBarry Was a Lady and later made famous in the 1956 American romantic musical comedy High Society.
