Is Vanilla the Latest Anti-aging Skincare Super Ingredient?

"We're no strangers to vanilla in terms of scenting out homes and flavoring our food, but could the aromatic see pods soon be responsible for nudging established anti-aging skincare ingredients like retinol off our shelves? Or at least along a little bit?" MiNDFOOD January 2021
For us, vanilla is much more than a flavor. Along with soothing the palate, with its sweet, warm, rich aroma, the vanilla bean has also been found to contain certain compounds, which in their most concentrated form, can restore skin. Since 2016, Heilala has been tirelessly testing the anti-aging properties of their vanilla beans behind-the-scenes. After undertaking extensive research and independent trials, BIOBLUME by Heilala, a brightening facial oil featuring VanilleActiv2 was launched.
What is VanilleActiv2?
VanilleActiv2 (patent pending) is a lipid fraction scientifically extracted from Heilala vanilla beans clinically proven to reduce the visible signs of aging by improving collagen production stimulating cell repair, regeneration and renewal. Our skin trials measured the change in collagen chemistry that occurred on human skin cells when VanilleActiv2 (patent pending) was applied. Lipids are skin’s natural fats and play a crucial role in maintaining the strength of the skin’s protective barrier, which holds moisture, protecting the skin from damage aiding the skin’s natural repair process. The result? Increased production of collagen, cell regeneration, and renewal. Along with VanilleActiv2, BIOBLUME by Heilala also contains a powerhouse of supporting vitamin-rich plant oils which nourish deeply, promoting cell renewal, collagen restoration, and improved elasticity to support smooth, supple skin.
3 Ways with BIOBLUME
Along with applying BIOBLUME as a facial oil, there are multiple uses for the product.
Hydrating Hair with a weekly mask:
Rehydrate dry hair by mixing 2-3 drops of BIOBLUME oil into your conditioner. Apply generously to towel dried hair after shampooing. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse with cold water. For optimal results repeat 2-3 times a week for soft, silky and shiny hair. It’s also ideal to smooth flyaway hairs during the day.
Soften stretch marks and scarring with a daily massage
Rub 2-3 drops of BIOBLUME onto any area of your body that requires some extra love and attention. For best results, apply daily morning and night once you are showered and dry and enjoy brighter more luminous skin. Applying 2-3 drops to your growing belly during pregnancy also provides much needed moisture.
Soothe skin after time in the sun
