Nordic women are known for their natural beauty. Using high-quality skin care is a contributing factor, in addition to a healthy diet that includes an abundance of berries found growing wild in the Nordic forest. The short but intense summer with 24 hours of sunlight packs lingonberries with exceptionally high amounts of antioxidants, plant sterols and essential Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. In Sweden, Norway and Finland, lingonberry is widely used and well-known as a health-promoting berry.
Lingonberry has a built-in anti-wrinkle effect that in nature keeps the berries from shrinking during frosty nights, whilst retaining moisture and elasticity. This is not only because the berry’s seed oil contains a high level of fatty acid Omega-3, but also the antioxidant gamma-tocotrienol, a natural vitamin E that is 60 times more powerful than its artificial counterpart.
According to researchers at Turku University, if we consume the lingonberry’s active ingredients, the skin’s ageing process can be delayed.
We develop our skin and hair care products based on the research undertaken by the University of Turku in Finland. We offer two products containing lingonberry seed oil: Lingonberry Hi-tech Serum in Cream and Lingonberry capsules (the same capsules that were used in the Finnish study). For the best results we believe in using the products simultaneously and nourishing the body from both the inside and out.
