- Take a small amount of cream – corresponding to the tip of your little finger, distribute the cream between your palms and pat / dab the cream into the skin of the face and neck, immediately after using ESSENTIAL NO.3 or oil.
- If you experience your skin at times needing more moisture, tightening or nourishment, you can mix a few drops of base oil in the cream – in the palms – and massage the mixture into the skin. You may want a little extra nourishment for the skin at night. Or more nourishment in the cold winter months.
- The cream is a good makeup base and if you want to use it alone, it gives a nice matte surface.
- In the summer months we can recommend that you mix the cream with a little ARGAN OIL NO. 1 w. gold shimmer. It provides easy protection against UV radiation. However, it can not replace a sunscreen.

Hyaluronic acid, along with collagen, is essential for maintaining the firmness and structure of the skin. Collagen provides firmness to the skin and hyaluronic acid moisturizes and nourishes collagen. Hyaluronic acid helps to repair the skin’s tissue, which makes it very suitable for skin with acne, scars or other imperfections.
When the skin is exposed to a lot of UV radiation, the production of hyaluron in the cells decreases, in this way the rate of cell breakdown increases. ESSENTIAL NO. 3 is therefore an ideal product for you who love to cultivate the sun in the summer.
Lactic acid is added to the product to normalize the pH of the skin. It strengthens the skin cells and provides optimal oxygen for both new and existing skin cells.
Vitamin E, which is derived from argan oil, is a rich source of antioxidants – antioxidants make sure to prolong and strengthen the life of skin cells, therefore antioxidants are important ingredients in skin care products.
Coconut oil is a very moisturizing ingredient and your skin will really fill up well with vital essential fatty acids when this ingredient is included in the cream.
A LITTLE ABOUT ARGAN AND COCONUT OIL
Argan oil originates from Morocco, which is more or less the only country in the world where the argan tree can grow. The argan fruit is a nice clear green fruit, which contains a small nut and inside the nut there are 2-3 small seeds, well protected. It is these small kernels that are cold pressed and turn into the golden drops we know. In Morocco, argan oil is used on an equal footing with the olive oil of southern Europe. That is, everything from cooking to skin and hair care.
Coconut oil is also known to be used for many purposes in both the food and cosmetics industry. What many are not aware of is that certain parts of coconut oil are also used in cancer treatment, where parts of the oil e.g. used in various forms of airway treatment. It is interesting as ingredients can be used both in cosmetics and in the pharmaceutical industry!
