Is your skin crying out for something extra during the cooler months?
You are not alone! Many women add our rich day and night creams in their skin care routines during winter to keep their skin looking amazing.
Daily Defence cream is a decadent moisturiser for the delicate skin on your face. Especially during winter, many women find that their skin needs something extra to nourish and deliver the hydration it requires. Our formulation is a powerful combination of essential oils, plant based oils and butters, and luxury oils, all designed to hydrate and revitalise your skin.
Daily Defence provides a triple threat as it offers SPF protection, anti-aging support and a unique combination of essential oils that are beneficial for your skin's health and have immunostimulant properties to boost your immune system. Perfect for the winter months!
Our moisturisers do not contain any water. Many moisturisers on the market today list water as the first ingredient followed by a number of thickeners and stabilisers. Research has shown that these water based products only provide temporary moisture to your skin. Many women find that their skin feels tight and dry soon after applying these types of creams.
We believe that you deserve to put high quality products on your face, that will make a difference to your skin for the better. We source ingredients of the highest quality and potency to use in our creams. You will notice that you need only the smallest amount of our day cream to effectively cover your entire face- meaning this 30g pot will last you a long time!
The most common feedback we receive about our skin creams is that you need less than you think! Women are used to 'scooping' their face creams out, where in fact a couple 'dots' on your skin is more than enough.
How to use this product:
Use clean fingers to apply a small amount of cream to face and neck using gentle upward strokes. Apply every morning after your regular skin care regime- cleanse, botanical mist and facial oil. The facial oil will deliver the essential active ingredients to your skin so it is still recommended that you apply a light layer of facial oil as usual, then your Daily Defence cream over the top.
* If you are planning on prolonged exposure to the sun it is recommended to also apply My Essential Alchemy Sun Cream.
Store below 30⁰C in a cool, dry spot out of direct sunlight.
In the unlikely event of skin irritation please discontinue use.

Despite the pure nature of our products, some people react or are allergic to entirely natural substances- for example lavender essential oil or Australian jojoba oil.
Whilst allergic reactions are extremely rare and unexpected, My Essential Alchemy cannot be responsible for allergies to products and resultant ailments if any. We strongly suggest that you patch test* (see below) any new product before its continued usage. If any redness, itching or discomfort occurs do not continue use.
Apply a small amount of new product to clean skin inside the elbow, inner wrist or behind the ear. Leave for 24 hours. Human skin changes daily and is affected by emotions, diet, hormones, and the climate. As with all cosmetic products, what suited you yesterday may not today, even though our formulae and ingredients have not changed.
It is especially important to undertake this patch testing if you are prone to sensitive skin, eczema, and psoriasis to avoid flareups.
We personally change our skin care regime throughout the year and suggest that you choose a product to suit the season, i.e. a richer, more protective butter in the winter, a lighter oil in the summer.
Variation in natural products
You may notice a slight variation in the colour or consistency for some of our products. These batch-to-batch differences are due to natural fluctuations of colour from the raw ingredients and seasonal adjustments. We never use synthetic colourants in any of our products. Our formulae are tweaked to suit the changing of the seasons and to provide a sublime end product for our customers.
At My Essential Alchemy, our hand crafted products and raw ingredients are carefully selected due to their natural, safe and effective properties. Despite this, caution must always be taken when handling ingredients in their raw state such as fine powders and undiluted essential oils. Take appropriate precautions for your project, such as wearing gloves, a face mask or working in a ventilated room to preserve your health.
As always, if you experience any irritation, sensitivity or discomfort discontinue use.
When making your own homemade products or storing raw ingredients please ensure that bottles/bags/jars are stored correctly, clearly labelled and kept out of reach of young children.
Our recipes have been tested and trialed a number of times to ensure their accuracy and effectiveness. If you add your own flair to these recipes please use your common sense as to the safety, cleanliness and effectiveness of the final product. My Essential Alchemy will not be held responsible for any products made using our recipes, loss or injury that may occur from making/using our recipes or failed attempts to follow the DIY recipes.
