Mature skin is demanding because it becomes drier and loses elasticity over time. The reason for this is that the sebaceous glands produce less oil and the skin no longer stores moisture as well. During menopause, the skin also becomes thinner and loses tone and elasticity. Wrinkles come into focus.
Biological processes cannot be stopped, but natural cosmetics can nourish the skin and provide it with valuable antioxidants. Antioxidants are important in the fight against free radicals, aggressive oxygen molecules that attack cells and accelerate the aging process of the skin.
Why proper cleansing protects against premature skin aging
Cleansing your skin - especially in the evening - protects your skin from premature aging. Fine dust & Co. clog the pores, cause increased pigmentation spots and lead to the formation of free radicals, which can damage the skin in depth. It is therefore particularly important to remove makeup thoroughly in the evening. Also because the skin regenerates at night. BINU Facial Soap cleanses the skin in an effective and at the same time mild way and stimulates it to rebalance itself due to the slightly alkaline pH value. This sets renewal impulses.
Important topic for mature skin: moisture
From the age of 30, the first visible signs of aging appear. The skin's ability to bind moisture and the elasticity of the connective tissue must therefore be supported as we age. And dryness wrinkles can be specifically smoothed with certain ingredients. Ingredients such as glycerin, bamboo leaf powder or honey can help the skin to retain more moisture itself.
Glycerin is a component of the skin's own moisture regulation system. The sugar alcohol that is produced during cold process soap making is also present in our BINU soaps. In conventional soapmaking, it is removed from the soaps and added to higher-priced products. We leave our soaps their glycerin, which helps the skin retain more moisture. Silicon provides more stability and elasticity in the bamboo plant and can mean the same effect for the skin. Also known as silica gel, silicon, along with honey, can provide a fresher appearance to the skin and diminished wrinkles. Bamboo is also rich in flavonoids, which are considered free radical scavengers. Bamboo leaf powder is included in BINU Bamboo Facial Soap.
For those with sensitive skin, cleansing with our natural fragrance-free soap, Red Ginseng Facial Soap, may be just the thing. The combination of pure vegetable oils, glycerin and red ginseng can bring irritated skin back into balance. Our customer Uta about Red Ginseng Facial Soap: "Before I bought it for the first time, I was very skeptical about whether soap would be good for my sensitive facial skin.

Strengthen barrier function
The more intact the skin's barrier function, the fewer harmful substances, such as free radicals, can penetrate the skin. Because if the skin's own collagen fibers are damaged, the skin becomes wrinkled more quickly. After cleansing, the skin should be cared for in the best possible way. Antioxidants, the so-called "radical scavengers", act against oxidative stress. The camellia(Camellia japonica) is particularly rich in antioxidants. The natural care line Sandawha is based on this plant. Camellia flower extract and camellia seed oil are also suitable for sensitive mature skin. A moisturizing serum, such as Sandawha Oil Serum, hydrates the skin after cleansing. Rich creams and vegetable seed oils, such as camellia seed oil, strengthen the skin's barrier function and protect it from moisture loss. The cold-pressed and unrefined oil is especially good for mature skin because it stimulates the skin's collagen synthesis.
Care tips for mature skin
Foods with vitamin C
After 30, you should eat more foods rich in vitamin C. These stimulate collagen production. Citrus fruits, broccoli and green leafy vegetables contain vitamin C. If you want to age less quickly, you should also avoid sugar. Many studies prove the negative effect on skin aging.
Facial massages and scrubs are very beneficial on both a physical and emotional level. Investing time in your own skin care is worthwhile in any case. Various skin treatments at the beautician's or facial masks in combination with a facial cleansing brush for home stimulate the blood circulation and can tighten the skin in a natural way by stimulating the skin's own healing processes and accelerating cell growth. Small rituals in everyday life, such as a visit to the beautician or a home spa with candles and a good book, help us to get back to ourselves.
