The Monthly Edit: Autumn Skin Essentials

The Black Collection

Welcome to our Wild Monthly Edit, where we give you a sneak peek at our current essentials and the best blends for the season.

Leaves are falling, Halloween stores are setting up shop, and those early morning starts are made a little more difficult with that chill in the air… Fall is officially here.

Sweaters may be out of storage, but skin is always in — which is why October is all about maintaining balance as the seasons continue to shift. With the dry, cool air moving in, this is the perfect time to start easing those richer moisturisers back into the regimen while retiring lightweight formulas. If you’re not sure where to start, here are our recommended blends this Autumn to ensure you’re skin looks and feels its best:

The Night Repair

Autumn air can leave skin tight, ashy, and dry — which is why it’s essential to nourish the skin daily. The Night Repair is an intensively hydrating blend designed to replenish and reinforce the skin’s natural barrier while you sleep. The Night Repair works overnight to comfort, repair and protect sensitive, dry and stressed skin. The blend reduces inflammation and provides a boost of phytosterols to strengthen the skin’s lipid barrier and encourages new collagen production. If the skin is particularly dry, you can use this protective blend in the daylight hours as well.

The Omega Scrub

Fall weather, indoor heating, and back-to-work stress tend to leave the complexion a little lacklustre, which is where hydrating masks comes in. For an instant pick-me-up [and 10 minutes of built-in TLC], apply our Omega Scrub as a face mask when your skin is looking dull, tired, and dehydrated. It’s sufficiently gentle to use on the delicate neck and décolleté areas and deeply purifies skin without clogging or drying whilst balancing and hydrating to reduce inflammation and redness.

The Serum

If there’s one product you need this season, it’s this. Unlike most facial serums, our 10-Lipid Elixir boasts a lightweight, moisture-intensive formula that helps revive and smooth dehydrated skin. Powerhouse actives, adaptogenic botanicals and CO2 extracts combine to brighten lacklustre skin while also hydrating any dry patches — revealing softer, more radiant skin. The Serum is the most versatile product from our wild family as it can be combined in four blends and works wonders on the hair as well.

The Sanitiser
Active + Botanical Benefits
Actives

Ethanol
Ethanol is a proven aid to preventing transmission of infectious agents and widely accepted as one of the most important infection control measures to prevent infectious disease transmission. The antimicrobial activity of ethanol can be attributed to its ability to denature and coagulate proteins. The microorganism’s cells are then lysed, and their cellular metabolism is disrupted. The activity is broad and immediate. Ethanol [the most common alcohol sanitising ingredient], appears to be the most effective against viruses.

D-Panthenol
D-Panthenol is the provitamin—a precursor, or substance that the body can convert into a specific vitamin—for B5. When panthenol is applied topically, it’s quickly converted into vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid. B5 binds to and holds water effectively, moisturising the skin and helping it maintain softness and elasticity. Panthenol has also been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect and to boost skin barrier function.

Botanicals

Vegetable Glyerin
Glycerin is hygroscopic — meaning it can draw moisture from the air around us and help keep that moisture in skin, thus minimising trans epidermal water loss [due to evaporation]. Research has shown that glycerin mimics what’s known as skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF), which is why it’s compatible with all skin types, of all ages. Replenishing skin’s NMF is important because it becomes depleted as we age, are subject to environmental exposure, and use irritating ingredients.

Sandalwood
Sandalwood is very mild but still has a powerful effect on the skin. Due to its antiseptic properties it prevents rashes, heals itching and inflammation, cools and soothes skin and moisturises and tones the skin with mild astringent action. In aromatherapy, inhaling the aroma of sandalwood oil or absorbing it through the skin is thought to transmit messages to parts of the brain involved in controlling emotions, known as the limbic system. These messages are believed to affect both an emotional and physiological response.

Carrot Seed
The benefits of carrot seed oil include antifungal and antibacterial qualities, due to the bioflavonoids it contains. Rich in vitamins A, C, B1, B2 and various essential fatty acids, carrot seed is incredibly skin-repairing to dry and damaged skin. It also contains a large amount of vitamin E, which is great for adding and retaining moisture in the skin.

 

Patchouli Oil
Patchouli oil, which contains several mono- and sesquiterpenoids, alkaloids, and flavonoids, is thought to possess significant anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities.In fact, it is reputed to impart antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic effects, and is also known to protect the skin barrier function. Studies have found that patchouli oil exerts significant antibacterial activity against staphylococcus bacteria. Patchouli is commonly used in aromatherapy for its ability to calm depression. It encourages the release of serotonin and dopamine; two hormones which ease feelings of anger and anxiety.

Lavender
Along with the other benefits commonly found in botanical ingredients [anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial], lavender is unique in its proven ability to boost blood circulation. This enables more brightening oxygen and nutrients to reach the skin’s surface. It can also protect and promote the skin’s natural barrier, plus balance its pH levels. Aromatically, this oil, rich in esters and alcohols, is useful for when fighting depression as well as anxiety and stress, helping to relax the mind, proving to be interesting in its application at a time of increased tension.

Clove Bud
Clove owes its medicinal benefits to its antimicrobial, anti-fungal, antiviral and stimulating properties, and is one of the richest sources of antioxidants. Clove oil contains a chemical called eugenol that acts as an antiseptic and antibacterial agent. With the help of these properties it can treat cuts and wounds and fight against fungal infections. Clove bud essential oil is used in aromatherapy to stimulate circulation and arousal of the mind and body allowing you to achieve mental clarity.

Bergamot
Thanks to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, bergamot is a natural cleanser. It can help to tone the skin, soothe skin irritation, and heal cuts and scars. Bergamot is also rich in polyphenols that have strong antioxidant effects to help protect the skin from free radical damage. Aromatically, bergamot is one of the best oils to support the central nervous system — it’s known to be calming to the spirit.
