Here is a perfect cream made as much for the wintery outdoors as it is for harsh and drying wintery indoor air. We formulated it to protect your skin outside and renew it indoors, especially when applied overnight

- Magdalena Wszelaki, Founder of Wellena

You know this moment when you step outside into a windy, cold day to what feels like nails hitting your skin. Spend a little time outdoors, and your skin now feels like red, dry, stiff leather - so much so that talking gets hard. Now back indoors, you'll find the heated air aggravates your skin even further. So what's the solution? When the seasons and weather shift, your skincare needs to shift with it. It's crucial during winter months to switch out water-based, which can increase dryness and skin aggravation for oil-based products like our Amla Renewal Cream. Its specialized formula protects your skin outdoors and rebuilds it overnight. To hydrate your skin indoors during winter, we recommend adding the aloe-based Amla Day Moisturizer.

Directions: At night, gently massage the cream into the face, neck, and décolleté

Store in a cool place below 75F/24C.

What's Inside

Amla Fruit Extract (Phyllanthus emblica)

Amla is an extract from Indian Gooseberry (Phyllanthus emblica), a highly regarded medicinal Ayurveda plant. Amla is known to have strong antioxidant properties since it is rich in ascorbic acid—which we tend to recognize as vitamin C.

A key ingredient in our Amla cream is Vitamin C; skincare products containing this superfood ingredient can help prevent sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and signs of aging and work to protect and hydrate the skin's barrier against outside forces. It is the perfect ingredient for a hydrating renewal cream.

Calendula Flower Extract (Calendula Officinalis)

The primary way calendula presents itself in skincare is that it's known for "soothing" for the skin:

  • It's Anti-Inflammatory

    Inflammation wreaks havoc on the skin: It breaks down collagen, causes irritation, and can trigger skin conditions. Inflammation comes from various factors, from stress, diet, and external aggressors like pollution and UV exposure.

  • It contains antioxidants

    Antioxidants are a beloved skincare ingredient for a good reason, as they neutralize free radicals and help our bodies avoid oxidative stress—both of which lead to premature aging, collagen and elastin breakdown, and a whole host of other issues. Calendula contains carotenoids and flavonoids. And because of these antioxidants, the plant has been shown to help wounds heal faster, plump skin through hydration and circulation, and (again) prevent inflammation.
  • It is antimicrobial

    You have trillions of microbes—including bacteria and fungi—collectively called the microbiome on your body. When balanced, these all play an essential part in keeping skin healthy. When a particular strain (or strains) becomes overgrown, issues can arise. Calendula helps support the right amounts of beneficial microbes within the skin's microbiome environment.
  • It can be hydrating

    Thanks to the fatty acids in the oil—like linoleic acid—that provide nutrients to help support your skin barrier function. When your skin barrier function is healthy, it's better to keep in water and stay hydrated.

Shea Butter(Butyrospermum Parkii)

Shea butter helps moisturize, nourish, and soothe the skin. It is excellent for dry skin and can create softer, hydrated, plumper skin, especially during the dry winter months.

It helps fade scars both from acne and non-acne-related causes in addition to healing sunburned, cracked, and peeling skin. It soothes skin allergies like poison ivy and insect bites, as well as skin conditions like contact dermatitis and psoriasis.

The combination of components in shea butter also helps neutralize free radical damage, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles, fades age spots, and may stimulate collagen production, so your skin will be working at reversing signs of aging from the outside in and the inside out.

Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera)

Coconut oil, also referred to as lauric acid, is the oil that we extract from coconuts. The lauric acid found in coconut oil can have antimicrobial properties, which can help kill bacteria on the skin and reduce inflammation. Additionally, coconut oil contains high levels of linoleic acid, an unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid, which is an emollient and skin soother.

Sunflower Seed Oil (Helianthus Annuus )

Chock full of skin-boosting compounds, sunflower oil delivers plenty of perks to your complexion. Sunflower oil is rich in linoleic acid, which is a fatty acid that's good for limiting water loss and rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant. Vitamin E will help guard skin from free radicals and damage from the sun, including fine lines and other signs of aging. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, Sunflower Oil helps to calm the skin. It has long been a part of remedies to treat skin conditions like dryness and eczema and It is one of the few oils that can be used in acne-prone skin people, as it should not block the pores.

Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis)

Rich in beauty-boosting vitamins A, E, and D, plus antioxidants and fatty acids, jojoba "oil" is a wax ester with remarkably similar properties to our skin's sebum. Meaning the "oil" can penetrate deeply, reaching below the top layer of skin for maximum nourishment. Jojoba is also naturally antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, analgesic (read: able to relieve pain), and anti-inflammatory. Perhaps best of all, it can be used on any skin type, from dry and sensitive to acne-prone.

Glycerin

Glycerin is great for the skin because it acts as a humectant, a substance that allows the skin to retain moisture. It can increase skin hydration, relieve dryness, and refresh its surface. It's also an emollient, which means it can soften skin.

Beeswax (Cera Alba)

Beeswax can create a protective layer on the skin. It's also a humectant, which means that it attracts water. Both qualities can help the skin stay hydrated. Beeswax is also a natural exfoliator, ideal for sloughing away dead skin cells.

Geranium Flower Oil (Pelargonlum Graveolens)

This ingredient is known to create a balance between oily and dry skin by balancing the production of sebum; this balance assists in boosting and improving the elasticity of the skin. It also stimulates the lymphatic system, releasing excess water that the body may retain in the tissue. Pelargonium Graveolens also has therapeutic abilities that can calm irritated skin, clear acne, and heal bruises, burns, cuts, and eczema due to its astringent, antiseptic, tonic, antibiotic, and anti-infectious properties

Bergamot Peel Oil (Citrus Aurantium Bergamia)

Bergamot essential oil is a balancing oil that balances oil production. Toning, cleansing and being can be used gently as an antiseptic. It soothes skin irritations, minimizes the look of scars and other marks on the skin. It evens skin tone by balancing out the melanin production, which helps soothe skin irritations, and it could be used directly on a cotton ball or pad on the infected area. Add Bergamot oil to a warm bath to soothe and clean the skin, balance the mood, improve hormonal balance, and build tension.

My face is very dry and this product has moisturized and softened my skin. It smells wonderful. I am sorry this line of products is being discontinued. I bought 2 more jars recently. I don’t know what I’m going to do when it is no longer available.

Pleasant Surprise

The Renewal Cream has been a pleasant surprise for me, I'm excited to say that this may be the healing moisturizer I've been looking for. My skin is extremely sensitive and reactive in these menopausal years, so finding a moisturizer has been very difficult and frustrating. The cream works well with my foundation, it takes a little amount for coverage, I haven't noticed any clogging of the pores or breakouts, no redness or irritation. Just healing! I'm still debating whether the scent may be a bit strong for me. In the container it's fine, once applied I feel a little sensitive to the smell. But it doesn't take much for me, I don't tolerate scents well as others may be just fine with it. This is what my complexion needed. :-)

DO YOU SHIP TO CANADA, THE UK, AUSTRALIA OR OTHER COUNTRIES?

Unfortunately, at this point we only ship to the United States. This is due to the ever-evolving international laws surrounding supplements.

There are forwarding companies like MyUS.com, that will forward orders to you in your country for a fee.

In this case, it is the customer's responsibility to find out in advance if the supplement in question is legal in their country. For example, Progesterone and DHEA are not legal to ship into Canada (Canada classifies bio-identical hormones as drugs so they can only be prescribed by a doctor or naturopath).

We have had customers successfully ship their supplements abroad using MyUS.com, however we have only limited experience with this service.

WHY DOES SHIPPING COST $11.45?

For small businesses like ours, the shipping fee covers the very real costs of getting your order to you: shipping, handling, packaging, warehousing, insurances, and fairly compensating all the people involved along the way. We do our best to keep this shipping cost as low as possible, and offer FREE shipping for orders $79 and above.

WHY DOES MY SUBSCRIPTION ORDER INCLUDE $11.45 SHIPPING?

If you set up a subscription order and notice that you are being charged shipping, it could be due to one of these reasons:

1. Your order value is under $79

2. Your initial order qualifies for free shipping, but the order frequency on your subscriptions is different ( 1 product is set to ship every month, the other is set to ship every 2 months).

*The system automatically splits this kind of order into 2 separate shipments.

In this case it is more economical to set up one subscription every 2 months, and to increase your quantity to 2 units of the supplement that you consume monthly.

For example: 2 Vitamin B6 + 1 Essential Omegas every 2 months = free shipping.

Please email us at support@hormonesbalance.com if you would like some help managing your subscriptions.
