Healing emollient cream with organic extract of cistus for face & body. Cistus is an endemic plant of Crete, known since Minoan era. Cistus resin, labdanum, is produced every summer. It can be topically applied and it can be used if the field of aromas. Cistus is also used to heal wounds, skin problems or soothe muscle pain. Cistus resin’s astringent properties help in stimulating the skin and reducing age spots. Wrinkles and fine lines are significantly reduced after daily use. Even if cistus oil is suitable especially for mature and dry skins, it regenerates sensitive skins as well.
Gods of Olympus argued for cistus. Myth says that the Olympian gods gathered all together to discuss and decide which plants would be healing. So they decided that cistus would heal the warriors wounded in battle. This decision annoyed goddesses, because they were sure that the plant with its delicate pink flowers would be more suitable to be used for beauty purposes. Despite their big fight, it was finally decided cistus to be used for both healing and beauty purposes. The species of cistus with the most healing, pharmaceutical and cosmetic properties is Cistus creticus.
Cistus leaves are high in polyphenol than any other plant in Europe, with an amazing ability of damaging free radicals and a high antioxidant activity. Cistus leaves also contain a balsamic resinous aroma, the labdanum. The resin contains organic compounds called labdanum diterpenes, which according to studies have antimicrobial and cytostatic activity (they inhibit the proliferation of cells and eventually prevent the formation of tumors).
Labdanum has been well known for 2,500 years and has been associated with many religions. In antiquity, it was known with the names "kisthos the arrin" according to Theophrastus, and "kistos" or "kissaron" or "kistharon" according to Dioscurides. In Minoan civilization there it was found that they used labdanum as cosmetic and healing herb, while there are references from Herodotus as well. Dioscurides refers to labdanum and its astringent and softening properties well as its ability to provoke warm. The Egyptians used labdanum in mummification process and for Orthodoxy is one of the 40 components of the Holy Myrrh. In the Middle Ages labdanum was used against plague. Today in Northern Crete, and especially in Sises area in the Municipality of Mylopotamos and Municipality of Malevizi, Cretans continue the tradition (which lasts for many centuries) of gathering labdanum. In Chalkidiki, cistus is used as poultice.
Cistus has the particular ability to destroy the free radicals that cause oxidation in the body and they are a key factor of premature skin aging.
Tests that have been carried out by the Professor G. Wiese have proved that labdanum improved the skin appearance of 61 out of 95 patients suffering from neurodermatitis, which in previous years its treatment was unsuccessful. The secret of the amazing effects of labdanum is vitamin P.
