Le gel de lin

Team BeautyMix's favorite ...


Always on the lookout for the best cosmetic ingredients , the BeautyMix team wants you to discover its pearl: linen gel!

If we say linen to you, we all think of the material, soft and delicate. And yes, this material has been used for centuries, already in ancient Egypt, linen was used to make clothes. But this flower has many other uses, including food and pharmaceuticals.

But we are interested in cosmetics! Can be used on skin and hair, flax gel firming properties thanks to its tightening and moisturizing.

Perfect substitute for Aloe Vera , flax gel is a natural moisturizer. Its little extra: it is cultivated and extracted in France. A local product therefore, and just as effective as its exotic cousins.

It is known to have a so-called "viscous" consistency. This is due to the mucilage, a substance contained in flax seeds which thickens in the presence of water and gives it this particular texture.

What are the properties of flax gel?

We love it on the skin for its moisturizing , firming and reshaping properties, providing suppleness and firmness.

To be applied directly to the skin as a serum before its day cream, it can also be adapted to its problems and expectations by adding vegetal oils to make it a moisturizer that will give you back luminosity and a glow as we like them! Finally, we add it to his face cream recipe as a moisturizing active.

For hair, it is known for its fixing , moisturizing and anti-frizz properties. A single nut is enough to bring them shine and softness. Ideal for curly hair, it allows you to restore volume and redraw your curls!
