Facts on Skin Care

Your skin reflects the internal state of your body so if you look good it usually is when you are feeing healthy. If your skin has a healthy glow this means that you have good blood circulation not only through your body but just within the skin.

Wrinkles are a sign of aging caused by the cross linking of collagen fibres which can be accelerated by inflammation caused by exposure to the sun. The most effective way to reduce wrinkles, (besides staying out of the sun during the middle of the day and wearing a hat to keep sun off the face), is to reduce arachidonic levels in the skin there by decreasing the potential for the production of ‘bad eicosanoids. (see our smoothie recipe)

Secondly an even more effective approach to prevent wrinkles is to increase the levels of good eicosanoids because of their powerful anti-inflammatory effects . These will do more to improve skin quality than what you put onto your skin because they are powerful vasodilators that increase oxygen levels to the skin  as well as being anti-inflammatory agents.

With improved blood flow there will be an improved turnover of skin cells. The best way to increase good eicosanoids is to take high quality Omega Oils.


We will be introducing our Green Smoothie Recipe that will help improve skin integrity, has been modified especially to address the internal systemic factors that affect your skin.

Anti Aging Skin Care Objectives

These include the following:

  • Improving blood supply to the skin through adding herbs like ashwagandha and gingko.
  • Improve the function of the endocrine system to ensure a youthful supply of hormones as well as stimulating
  • Improve the turn over of skin cells
  • Stimulate the production of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) which leads to fresh younger looking skin.
  • Increasing the production of collagen through supplementing using an oil soluble vitamin C and gelatine.
  • Preventing systemic inflammation which causes oxidation and free radical damage. Adding Devils claw, yarrow or white willow bark extract will help with this.
  • Preventing pre-oxidation of oils ingested and maintaining a healthy lipid layer around each cell which keeps skin looking younger.

What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells?

These are undifferentiated cells found in bone marrow, fat and blood and their role is to repair and replace  damaged tissue which then leads to the production of fibroblasts, keratinocytes and other skin cells

Ways in which  Mesenchymal Stem Cells are Activated

  • Injury or damage to tissues which produces inflammatory cytokines that form new cells.
  • Topical applications of oil soluble vitamin C
  • Facial scrubs and chemical peels. (See below for the exfoliating recipe using a crude form of vitamin C)
  • Sufficient levels of estrogen.
  • Activation of sirtuins.

Role of Topical Vitamin C

Vitamin C hinders the production of arachidonic acid which causes inflammation and converts it to less harmful substances. ( Note this micro-inflammation is the first step to free radical damage ….a wrinkle )

There are two main  types of vitamin C.

  1. Water soluble vitamin C or L- ascorbic acid, which gains entry to the inside of the cell, cannot prevent free radical damage on the cell wall. It is also quite acidic and irritating breaking down within a day.
  2. Oil-soluble vitamin C or vitamin C ester, which acts on the lipid layer that surrounds each cell. It acts as an effective anti-oxidant that can penetrate the cell plasma membrane.

Research on Ascorbyl Palmitate

  • Research shows that the absorption of this vitamin C, when measured by scientists at Proctor and Gamble, is absorbed much more quickly and achieves levels ten times higher than L-ascorbic acid.
  • It is not acidic and does not irritate the skin like L-ascorbic acid and can be used directly onto broken skin and sunburn without causing stinging.
  • It is very stable and can be added to creams and lotions and keeps its potency for years without becoming rancid.

Comments on Cell-Vit C

“Also products arrived yesterday, my skin was crying out for Cell-Vit C its weird but nothing else takes away the dryness in my skin. The night cream sample is sensational its like heaven and feels beautiful.  I have skin problems with urticaria which leads to angiodema due to change of temperature and getting wet, which really is a pain but manageable. Which is why I have always had problems with skin care that is until now, you have no idea how lucky i am to have found your products. Makes me laugh because I was on your website  looking for products for my daughters horse for a calming product and never got there haha. Anyway thank you so much. Colleen”

” I ordered and tried your Cell Vit C lotion over the last month and am so impressed with it. Its like my skin is now reliant on it and soaks it up as fast as I put it on my face. I think my skin feels better and firmer and my complexion is clearer looking. Very happy with it, as I am with all your products (horsey and human!!) JC”

“you know when I run out of this I really notice it. My skin just stays feeling “tight” using other products, nothing eases that after shower feeling until I use some of this lovely stuff :)”



Over the moon with the Green Gold! What an amazing product. Skin food luxury. Better than any imported product I have ever tried, ever. Thank you!


Hi Everdien,

 I’d like to order some Green Gold cream at the old 35% discount offer from before. That’s $38.67 ok? I was blown away by the improvement in my skin. I should have done before and after photo’s as a quite large keratosis has almost entirely disappeared!

 Kind Regards

Sara H.
