If you are over 50 and experiencing menopause or are post menopause then I bet you’ve noticed changes in your skin! Soon after turning 50 I noticed that my skin was drier, flakier and was beginning to look thinner and blotchy. It literally seemed overnight!
Now, more than ever, I realize the importance of being sure to keep my skin moisturized. If I can stress the importance of anything as a skin care manufacturer it would be to keep your skin moisturized! Thus, one of the many reasons I formulated my Evening Primrose Cream. I have been making this cream for over 15 years now and it has proven itself to be super moisturizing and nourishing for all ages and types of skin.
The main ingredients in Evening Primrose Cream are evening primrose oil and borage oil. Both contain a large amount of gamma-Linolenic acid, a.k.a. GLA, an Omega-6 essential fatty acid which is necessary for our skins health. Our body can’t produce essential fatty acid on it’s own so we need to add it to our diet and make sure it’s in our facial care products.
This cream also contains deep conditioning emu oil. Emu oil is transdermal and can carry nutrients deep into your skin. It has many skin healing qualities including amazing pain relieving abilities for which it is patented for in the U.S. (read more here).
Anti-oxidant rich Olive Oil is another ingredient. This vitamin packed oil protects your skin from free radicals that increase the signs of aging. Olive oil softens wrinkles, assists in removing dead skin cell buildup and strengthens skin cell membrane.
I also packed several skin loving essential oils into this cream. Precious oils of Turkish Rose, East Indian Sandalwood, African Frankincense, Egyptian Geranium, Patchouli and several others that have amazing anti-aging benefits including skin toning, balancing oil production, capillary health, and reducing redness and swelling.
This cream is best used at night while our skin is resting and rejuvenating. (read more about this process in this blog post).
So, no excuse! There is help for your menopausal skin, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg! Most skin care products are WAY over priced. Be careful to not base the effectiveness of a skin care product solely on it’s price. Look at the ingredients. My Evening Primrose Cream is a true example of a high quality, effective face cream without the unnecessary high price.

“I have been an avid spa product user for the past 10 years, and have tried many high-end facial regimens. I was using Aveda when my skin started getting very dry and red. I was pregnant and my midwife suggested I was experiencing rosacea related to pregnancy hormones. My skin started to flake and break out and was in a state of constant redness. I remembered a friend loved Natural Family Botanicals and decided to give them a try. My skin improved almost immediately. I have been using the Evening Primrose Cream, Lavender Geranium Facial Toner, and Organic Facial Cleanser for about six months now and I can’t recall having a single blemish or dry patch the entire time. My skin looks younger and firmer.” Nikki, OR
