Tips and Advice


Hyaluronic acid is one of the hottest trends in beauty, but what exactly is it and how does it work? Discover how this intensely hydrating ingredient moisturises and plumps your skin, and how we extract the natural hyaluronic acid that enriches our iconic Vitamin E creams. WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID? Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in our own bodies that plays a big part in moisture retention for our skin cells. It’s like a sponge that soaks up then locks in the moisture we give to our skin. As we age, our natural production of hyaluronic acid slows down. Luckily, we can get it from natural sources, such as biofermented wheat. IT LEAVES SKIN FEELING FRESH AND LOOKING PLUMPER Hyaluronic acid intensely hydrates your skin by helping it retain more moisture. When your skin is highly hydrated, it helps it look plumper, softer and hydrated. IT HELPS REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES Using hyaluronic acid in your routine to keep skin hydrated and plumped with moisture improves its surface and texture, which helps hydrate the skin in the delicate eye area.

It’s most important to keep the delicate skin around your eyes nourished with moisture. It’s up to 10 times thinner than the skin on the rest of your face, which means it can show the signs of fatigue more easily.

How the Shea Butter is obtained?

Shea butter is also called karite butter. Shea butter is obtained from seeds of stones of fruit of Shea tree (Karite). It is naturally rich in A, E, D, F vitamins and cinnamic acid. It also provides natural protection against UV (SPF around 6). The tree has first fruits when it reaches age of 20. It bears fruit fully only when it is 45 and does it for almost 200 years. It grows in East Africa, North Uganda and South Sudan. Step by step: - The nut has to be cracked out of its shell
​- It has to be washed and left to dry
​- Then it has to be crushed into little pieces
​- Small pieces of nut are now roasted and ground into paste of dark chocolate colour
​- Some water is added and it is whipped to be mixed well
​- Later on, the paste is cleaned by being rinsed with distilled water
​- A mass obtained in this way has to be heated so fats are separated on the top and oils at the bottom
​- Then the fat is collected and remaining oil is left until its get hard – it is our shea butter. Application: It is perfect for looking after dry sensitive skin prone to allergies. It delays ageing, protects from harsh weather conditions, brings back firmness and elasticity thanks to the content of A, E, F vitamins.
Fat acids which are included in it are almost identical with fat acids present in the corneal layer of epidermis what makes it so easy to absorb by skin. Recommended also for pregnant women who wish to avoid stretch marks.
Shea butter provides perfect care for damaged hair. By regeneration process it smooths hair and gives it gloss while preventing frizziness.

Glycerin Soaps, What it is ?

Glycerine soap cleans, softens, and moisturizes dry skin. It gets rid of the sensation of tension by soothing irritations and can be applied on sensitive skin. All this is possible because of glycerine's trait of penetrating corneal layer of epidermis thanks to which it goes deep down into spaces between cells of skin and ensures long-lasting and intensive effect of moist and smoothness. Glycerine is a natural transparent liquid of rather sweet taste. Its primary source are vegetable fats. Before technological processing it resembles fat syrup-like liquid to the touch. Its main feature is hygroscopicity i.e. the ability to hold water thanks to which it intensively moisturizes and soothes dried dull skin with no elasticity. Glycerine soaps manufactured by Stara Mydlarnia are hand made natural products which result from traditional recipes. Apart from glycerine base consisting of natural components one shall find in them: - essential oils and natural aromas to which they owe their extraordinary scent; - other additives making the soap even better e.g. plant extracts, peeling particles; ​- a lot of passion and inspiration by nature. Production of our soaps is a carefully planned process consisting of several stages. Thanks to it we achieve the most interesting patterns. At stage I we make small soap elements in the moulds of fancy shapes, which have to cool down and are later immersed in soap mass to create complete composition.
