Why Fresh Ingredients Are So Important

Here at Dahliana we talk about using fresh, raw ingredients a lot so you may be wondering why this idea of “fresh” is so important. We all enjoy fresh food or a fresh wardrobe for the new season, but why freshness is associated with our skincare can be confusing. There are several benefits provided by fresh fruits, vegetables, and even flowers that have us constantly sourcing the best ingredients to ensure they are of optimal quality for our products.

One of our main goals is to provide chemical-free skincare by reducing the need for what are commonly known as secondary ingredients. These are generally found when something is made with a natural ingredient that requires preservation. For example, aloe is found in many beauty products. However, because it is an organic compound, aloe requires chemicals to preserve it and ensure it stays fresh within a product. When a company utilizes aloe in their products, they buy the aloe from a supplier that has already preserved it. This makes it unnecessary to list the secondary ingredient(s) used to ensure the aloe’s stability.

By using fresh ingredients here at Dahliana, we are able to eliminate the “pickling,” that unnaturally extends an ingredient’s shelf life because the product gets to you sooner than if our ingredients were to be processed before getting to us. Furthermore, we are able to choose what secondary ingredients we use in our products to ensure we use the highest quality additives that do not sacrifice our core values, and we always list them.

Another benefit of fresh, raw ingredients is that they contain more nutrients and naturally beneficial components for your skin that would otherwise be eliminated by the preservation process. For example, our resveratrol is made from fresh-pressed organic grapes and our antioxidants are acquired from several fresh-pressed juices and extracts to ensure maximum potency while being able to source these benefits naturally.

At Dahliana we believe in providing the best skincare for all skin types and a key component to that is eliminating chemicals and harsh additives. By using fresh, raw ingredients we are able to provide you with the highest quality natural skincare without sacrificing these beliefs.  

WHY VEGAN + RAW BEAUTY PRODUCTS

In a world of so many chemicals, I've craved for so long to have a raw, transparent, natural line available. Having worked with dermatologists and prescription skin care, I've realized that there are way too many chemicals in skin care products today. It felt unnecessary. I kept a positive aspect in my skin care line by incorporating 100% effective ingredients without the chemicals. Natural and raw ingredients that have been freshly juiced right in our lab and thus giving our end-users the most amount of micro nutrients! I believe our skin just loves food with Nutritional ingredients!

DAHLIANA FRESH PRESSED

Eating fresh raw ingredients has a vast amount of benefits, people know this but taking this concept to skincare is still considered a fresh idea by some. 

We at Dahliana pride ourself with a one year shelve life. Shorter shelf life equals more active ingredients and a more powerful product for your skin. Super healthy raw products offer sexy & fast results which offer a smart alternative to the main stream skincare on the market today. Cold-pressed Juice is Exemplary
Cold Pressing juices leaves the precious enzymes intact creating an enzyme stimulated base. Cold-pressed juices contain more vitamins, minerals and enzymes than those made with a traditional centrifugal machine. We also use organic cold-pressed oils instead of mineral oils or artificial oils. The amount of oil the producer can extract chemically is proportionally higher -- and results in a less expensive product -- than mechanical processes. 

The new Farm to Face approach. The Entire Dahliana Skin Care Collection is Raw. 

EYE CREAM ALERT

Our Eyes and surrounding area have the most delicate and sensitive skin on our bodies. The skin surrounding the eyes must be treated like a precious gem, as it is four times thinner than anywhere on the rest of our bodies. Our Eyes are very active, subjected to airborne pollutants and blink on the average of 8 -10 times per minute, placing a strain on our under-eye area and making it a top priority to prevent and protect your skin daily.

Here a few tips that will help you achieve the best results:

  • To optimize results, begin using Dahliana "Eye Renew" creme as early as in your twenties.

  • The under eye areas are very delicate and any make-up removal or applications should be performed with the gentlest of strokes and tools.

  • Apply "Eye Renew" creme twice daily, in the morning and evening after cleansing your face.

  • Apply "Eye Renew" creme before applying any other products.

  • Apply "Eye Renew" creme with gentle outward tapping and the lightest of pressure. Pat one pump along the top of each of your cheekbones.

  • Always choose natural and chemical free ingredients that soothe and hydrate the skin and are not too oily or rich in texture.

  • Be sure to source humectant type ingredients such as Evening Primrose Oil, Shea Butter, Grape seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Micro Algae, Peptides, Eyebright Extract, Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract and Collagen boosting ingredients like Co-Enzyme Q10 for best results.

  • Hint: Excess "Eye Renew" may also be applied above upper lip to help prevent upper lip lines.

  • Less Squinting equals less under eye wrinkles. Use sunglasses to prevent squinting.

  • See and experience amazing results by using Dahliana "Eye Renew"creme every day.

A NEW PARADIGM OF AWARENESS AND SUSTAINABILITY

We need to think of our skin as needing nourishment and nutrients. Cosmetic skin care strayed so far to the other extreme with added artificial ingredients like acrylics (plastics) and many other unnatural ingredients, one has to ask themselves: "Is this what my skin really needs"? 

Over the last 20 years, my experience and expertise in medical skin care, has helped me to discover that natural ingredients are far more superior and powerful than synthetics. 

Your skin absorbs products just like your body would food. It makes all the difference to feed your skin fresh ingredients and cold-pressed raw skin care. Our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it, so it’s just as important as the food we eat. People aren’t just falling for the hype, nor the candy-coated medical finding notices. Everybody is searching for a more healthy and well-nourished lifestyle these days and for this reason Dahliana Skincare has become very conscious of how we source our own ingredients. There is a very special energy when you stay in tune with being a natural human.

 

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION ABOUT RAW AND VEGAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS?

One big misconception about Raw and/or Vegan beauty products is that they can’t be as effective as an Rx brand or Medically endorsed products. That is simply untrue! For example: Most pharmaceuticals on the market are derived from Natural Plants of the Earth but doused in chemicals. With that said it is quite evident that most plant-based ingredients have an endless array of benefits to offer the beauty industry.  The skin is very sensitive and what better way to nourish it than with plant-based fresh products. By going vegan with your skin care products you are avoiding an endless list of chemical ingredients and animal by-products. Thus creating healthy and vibrant skin.

SKIN CARE MYTH UNCOVERD

It is a myth that you have to change your daily routine unless you are experiencing changes in your skin or climate. Powerful Antioxidants ingredients in your skin care products do not stop working even with long term use you achieve all the benefits. 

When you find the right Dahliana Skin Care routine you do not have to change your products to receive results.

Your skin cannot get immune to the use of good skin food and healthy ingredients. Keep enjoying your favorite skin care products.

GROW, EAT, LIVE WILD

I live surrounded by the most enchanted Sierra Mountains in California. Every day we are allowed to enjoy the tall forests of Cedars and Redwoods overhead and are comforted by the flowing Yuba river. My day trip on horses with my friend Alicia Funk (Author of the book "Living Wild" and CEO of the "Living Wild Project": www.livingwild.org includes riding our horses on a spring day high up in the mountains. The fields are full of Wildflowers and Golden California Poppies. The scent in the air is so fresh and healing to the soul that I started dreaming of capturing a skincare product with spring and wildflowers in a bottle. It felt to me like a Wildflower serum would be appropriate to capture the California spring! 

We needed to include a healing blend of fruits and flowery aromatherapy to give this serum the most aromatic natural hint of the colorful meadows. 

We rode home that afternoon with thoughts of flowers, the mountains and the fresh air of spring,  Rejuvenated and Young again!

Now we have created the perfect serum for you! Just opening the "Wildflower Youth serum" your skin will be soaking up the precious ingredients and inherent healing properties of of this serum. Enjoy!)

HOW TO SLOW THE AGING PROCESS

In my years of experience working in the medical Skincare field I have encountered many ingredients that have a profound effect on aging and work amazing for age prevention.

Dahliana is bulid around many of these ingredients:

1. Pharma Grade Co Enzyme Q102

2. Fruit Stem Cells

3. Hyaluronic acid

4. Resveratrol

Keep a few things in mind – we have a tremendous amount of control over how our skin ages. About 20% of skin aging is genetic and the rest is caused by the environment – sun, stress, pollution, disease, medication, our overall health, etc. Following smart skincare steps like protecting your skin from the sun on a daily basis, keeping your skin barrier intact in order to prevent skin disease and chronic inflammation to the skin, eating a diet rich in antioxidants, and not smoking will all help keep your skin looking good. If you follow all these steps does that mean your skin will never sag or wrinkle? Of course not, but if you follow a few simple steps everyday you can definitely help maintain your youthful glow and edge for longer. So keep in mind that when you use your Antioxidant serum every morning you are preserving your skin for the long run – building collagen and fighting inflammation in order to prevent the aging effects of chronic inflammation.

 

WINTER SKINCARE TIPS

We are stepping into the winter season... When summer & fall skincare was lighter & breezier and all about protecting your skin, the winter is the time to deeply repair, restore & rehydrate your skin. In short winter is the season to lavish your skin with good nutrients and vitamins to repair past summers sins:

Some of our Dahliana Skincare Products work great to repair your skin this winter:

Number one is our deeply hydrating Dahliana “Rice Hydro Peptide Serum”. It contains fresh apple juice and yes a little bit of Cannabis Sativa (Hemp oil). In all seriousness, however, Hemp oil is extremely hydrating and moisture balancing!

I also love to use the Rice Hydro Peptide serums on those gray days where I need the extra glow! It works instantly when it is applied! The Hyaluronic acid in our Rice Hydro Peptide serum creates an ideal environment for the generation of new skin cells and plays an important role in tissue hydration and cellular function. It’s unsurpassed hydrating properties result in a smoother, softer and younger look.

 

WELCOME TO DAHLIANA

My name is Carola and I am the founder of Dahliana Skincare. I have always had pretty good skin, but when I started being concerned about aging and wanted to use natural, organic anti-aging skincare products, I was left with nothing. I have tried and sold many well known brands of skincare over the years while working at Dermatologist offices and Med Spa clinics. We had received hundreds of promotional skincare products to try. Whenever I tried any of the skincare, natural or commercial, I always seemed to end up getting strange pimples and rashes. It was my body's way of telling me that there was something unnatural in the product that was irritating my skin. I was determined to find something that worked for my skin.

When we created Dahliana Skincare products we found out that other skincare companies don't include secondary preservatives in their ingredients list, they also were not bio-fermented and did not include fresh juices. Most of our Dahliana ingredients are sourced right here in North America for quality control. There are so many details that are rarely revealed in natural skincare. Your best bet is to educate yourself.

Dahliana makes sure you get the purest and freshest skincare!  Every ingredient is calibrated to insure the most profound cell renewal.
