Wild Yam Skin Cream
For maturing skin. Especially if your skin and tissue is dry and papery, lacking moisture, in the post-menopause years.
A skin cream specifically designed for menopausal and post menopausal women who want the additional support of herbs for balance and well being. Menopause is not a medical condition, but a natural phase in a woman's life and herbs have been used for centuries to support them.
Our customers tell us that this also makes an exceptionally good face cream for exceptionally dry, mature skin too!
Wild Yam contains steroidal saponins, including diosgenin, which is remarkably similar to our own hormone, progesterone. In fact, wild yam was once the only source of raw materials for the early contraceptive pills.
Each jar contains 60ml (approximately 50g) of cream.
Contains the herbs Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa) and Marigold (Calendula officinalis).
As a face cream: Apply as a normal face cream on dry areas at morning and at night.
As a body cream: Apply two to three times a day but keep applying consistently, once started. Rub into soft skin areas (inner thighs, inner arms, stomach, under breasts) and alternate the area applied to.
Do not use internally.
Use within 12 months of opening the jar.
Wild Yam can have beneficial effects on menopausal symptoms, especially those that affect the skin, such as reddening, flashing, thinning skin, brown spots, and exceptionally dry skin, especially vaginal dryness.
Did you know? Wild Yam contains a naturally occurring compound called diosgenin. This is the compound that was synthesised to make the first contraceptive pills in the 1960s. In fact, wild yam was once the only source of raw materials for the early contraceptive pills.
Marigold is also included in this cream for its soothing and regenerative effect on thinning skin tissue.
