Product Reviews

There are many variety of products in Canaan Dead Sea series. Personally i'm using quite a few of the products currently. Well, like i mentioned, there are quite a lot of items and i've yet to try all of them. So i shall post my personal reviews on the products i'm using.


Face Mud Mask

This is one of my favourite! The packaging comes with a mini spoon (or applicator) to scoop out the mask. I'll usually transfer to my hands and apply on my face. This mask dries really quickly on your face. When i apply half of my face and wanted to touch up some areas, its dry already and i cant really touch up the mask. It's really amazing within 2 mins and even i want to put a lump of mud mask to touch up, i cant really do that. it just kind of wont stick on the face? When you use it, you'll know what i mean. LOL.


Anyway, drying up too much is not a disadvantage especially for lazy bumps like me. i don't really have to wait too long thinking what am i suppose to do when my mask is on. As per instructed, 2-3 mins will do. I can feel slight tingly feeling on my face. Perhaps its tightening my pores. Immediately after i've washed my face, i can really feel that my face are so soft and smooth. i'm not kidding or exaggerating. My colleagues who's using this mask also agrees. I've been faithfully using this at least once a week. I highly recommend this mask to people having normal to oily skin.

Must Buy!!



Mud Mask (Body)


When there's mud mask for face, surely there must be one for body too right? Thankfully there's really a mud mask for body where the results achieved are as good as the face mask! This product is really value for money especially those who loves DIY at home instead of splurging at spa salons. Each packet can last you for about 8-10 applications! It comes to about $3.30 each session? You dont have to fly to Israel or pay sky high price for the mud elsewhere. However, the process can be a little messy in your bathroom. How to apply? Rinse your body and just spread the mask all over your body. Do it when your body is damp but not too wet. You dont have to apply too thick.


"Apply evenly over entire body. Rinse off with lukewarm water after 8-15 minutes. Avoid bruised or infected skin." Well, 8-15mins can be a drag in the bathroom. What i usually do is to make use of this time to apply hair mask. hehe.. i like multitasking. Once your body starts to get dry, its time to rinse off the mask. I will still use my shower gel after this. Tah-dah! My skin feels smooth and radiant coz it's high in minerals and it effortlessly absorbs excess oils and dead skin cells.


Recommended!

Daily Silk Serum


For thirsty skin, this is for you. Just as the name sounds, silk serum. It makes my face soft and smooth. What i like about this serum, it absorbs quickly and it's light weight and have a light pleasant scent. It also gives you a glow on your face! The serum will hydrate my face without making my face oily.





Must Buy!!
















Here's some of the reviews and i will post more reviews on other products that i've tried shortly. Thanks for reading.

Introducing Canaan Dead Sea Products

Hi everyone, welcome to my BlogShop. As you may have noticed, dead sea products have been getting very popular in Singapore. I would like to introduce Canaan Dead Sea Products which is directly imported from Israel. The prices are definitely cheaper than other brands without compromising the effects. Maybe some brief introduction on the products first:

Canaan Skincare Energizer™ (CSE) Complex

The driving force behind our entire line, CSE Complex™ combines health-inducing Dead Sea minerals and powerful plant extracts indigenous to this captivating region.

It begins with a healthy harvest of powerful minerals from the Dead Sea, arguably one of the Earth’s most astounding natural spas. This ancient basin abounds in minerals and nutrients that have been forming in its waters and along its banks throughout the millennia. Located at the lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea region has by far the richest concentration of minerals on the planet. These moisture-enhancing gifts of the Earth have been clinically proven to be vital factors in stimulating the skin’s metabolism and natural hydration processes and contribute significantly to the creation of cosmetic applications that help to maintain a healthy complexion.

Rounding out our unique CSE Complex™ is a medley of powerful plant extracts that are indigenous to the Dead Sea region – specifically Plantain Leaf, St. John’s Wort and Marshmallow Root. The secrets of these desert plants have been well-known to the native tribes of the desert for centuries, who have harvested its goodness in the creation of a variety of effective medicines, tonics and balms. At Canaan skincare, we leverage their naturally effective ingredients to help hydrate, soothe and repair the skin.

The unique complex helps to heal, firm, nourish and moisturize your thirsty body skin and complexion, leaving your skin supple, relaxed and deliciously refreshed.

Active Ingredients in "Canaan's" Products

Minerals
Minerals from the Dead Sea
There is a 30 % concentration of minerals in the waters of the Dead Sea compared with a 3% concentration of minerals found in other oceans. This high concentration makes a significant difference in the potency and healing of the skin with the help of cosmetics containing salts and minerals extracted from the Dead Sea.

What makes the minerals from the Dead Sea so vital to routine beauty treatments?
The minerals are chemical elements found in the earth which play a key role in all the systems of the human body: building bone, teeth, skin and hair which are essential for the ongoing, healthy functioning of the body.
The human body cannot produce these minerals on its own, and therefore must supplement them with foods, vitamins and various additives such as those offered in the "Canaan" line of cosmetics.
The mud and natural salts found at the basin of the Dead Sea depths are rich in minerals such as: sulfur, sodium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, and work wonders on facial skin.

Sulfur - anti inflammatory, anti bacterial, healing and absorbent.

Magnesium - 70% of the body's magnesium is found in the teeth and bones, and is essential for the development of healthy bones and teeth. It activates many enzymes and plays a key role in the changing of blood sugar into energy. Magnesium also helps to regulate the body's temperature and accelerates the metabolism of the body's cells.

Calcium - essential for the development and healthy functioning of the body. Calcium strengthens the cell's membrane and is an important component of the teeth and bones. It is essential for many of the metabolic processes.

Sodium - protects the intra-cell pressure by regulating the volume of the cell's fluids, and maintains the acid balance. It is essential for the transfer of nerve pulses and the contraction of the muscles. Sodium is found in most foods and is easily absorbed.

Potassium - essential for many of the body's functions, including maintaining normal heart beat, the balance of body fluids, storage and decomposition of carbohydrates as a source of energy.

Iron - an essential life element. The adult body contains 4 grams of iron, found in hemoglobin and in the red blood cells. Iron is an essential element for transporting oxygen throughout the body. A good source for iron is found in meat and particularly in liver. A lack of iron could cause anemia.

Zinc - plays a major role in the functioning of more than 200 enzymes. It is essential for the production of proteins, nuclear acid (the genetic material of the cells) and is involved in the hormone Insulin in the utilization of carbohydrates and the healing of sores and burns. The oxidization of zinc, because it soothes locally, is a widely used ingredient in many salves and creams used for the treatment of skin problems and hemorrhoids.

The minerals mentioned above are essential for adults, whose skin metabolism has depleted due to the diminishment of body minerals and waning renewal of cells over time. Therefore the body needs to supplement them with external reinforcements.


Plant Extracts- Active Ingredients in the CSE Complex™

The healing powers of plants have been known to man since time immemorial.
Up until 60 years ago, the source of almost all medicines recorded in medical books is from plants. Israel is blessed with more than 700 varieties of plants that have been documented that they contain medicinal healing qualities. There are medicines which are synthetically manufactured in the laboratory which imitate the chemical structure of these natural medicines.

The "Canaan" Series at Chic Cosmetic Industries Ltd. has researched and found three medicinal plants which are particularly effective in the treatment of facial skin:





1. Hypericum Perforatum
St. Johns Wort

This plant is known for its sterilizing anti-bacterial and soothing qualities. It helps in the restoration of the skin's cells and significantly reduces the skin's sensitivity.




2. Althea Officinalis
Marsh Mallow root (Alcea setosa)
> Creates a protective layer above the wounded layers of skins for example: a cut or bruise by mending and healing the skin, anti- inflammatory and anti- infection
> The membrane creates a layer of protection which maintains the natural moisture of the skin, and hence improves dry dull skin.






3. Plantago Lanceolata
Plantago Lea
> Rids the body of heat and poisons, anti inflammatory, relieves swelling, lymphatic edema and benefits the skin.
> Absorbs and stops bleeding. Anti allergenic, balances the immune system. Helps repair the skin and relieves pain.
> Protects and moisturizes the skin and its capacity to regulate itself in cases of natural dryness.
> Improves blood flow and the rate of metabolism and thereby regenerating skin cells.




Vitamins
Vita = life, as the name indicates. Vitamins are vital for the body and play a key role in the different bodily functions.
We derive most of the vitamins from external sources. Due to their complex and varied roles, and the limitations of the body's ability to produce them all adequately, (due to illness, medications or aging), the body suffers from a vitamin deficit which can hurt or impair an internal bodily function or the external surface of the body- the skin.

At The "Canaan" Series of Chic Cosmetic Industries Ltd. we have concentrated on adding to our line of products three types of essential vitamins to the skin: vitamins A, C and E.

Vitamin A
An anti oxidant, essential for the neutralization of free radicals. Active and important for the regulation and cornification of the skin, encourages the production of new cells, protects the level of natural moisture and reduces wrinkles.

Vitamin C/ Absorbic Acid
Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen, the protein responsible for the protection of the cell's membrane and neutralizes free radicals.
Many studies show that vitamin C also strengthens the immune system. This vitamin has been known for years as a very effective anti oxidant. Scientists believe that it functions to prevent damage and even repair the skin from the sun's rays.
Even prophylactic use of products containing vitamin C helps to significantly improve damage to the skin and the skin's texture.

Vitamin E
This powerful anti oxidant protects the cell's membrane as well as other parts. It is found in the body's important glands such as the lobes of the brain and the sexual organs. It has a regulating effect in situations of stress and tiredness.
The use of cream containing vitamin E before exposure to the sun and up to 8 hours after exposure neutralizes, to a great extent, the damaging effects of free radicals on the skin. Vitamin E is also found to be soothing for sensitive and irritated skin.

Vitamin B
Vitamin B belongs to a group of eight different vitamins, which are often found together in the same foods. Vitamin B5 / Pantothenic acid: Within the vitamin B group, part of the coenzyme A. Helps release energy in the cells.

Oils found in Products

The use of oils in beauty and health treatments, has been known to man for over 6000 years from the time of the bible. It was used for religious ceremonies, embalming kings, healing and perfumes.

Commonly used plant oils in "Canaan's" products are: avocado oil, carrot oil, coconut oil, choc ova oil, grape seed oil, sesame oil and almond oil.

Olive Oil

Active Ingredients in the Spa Products

Plant Based Oils

The definition of aromatherapy can be broken down into two parts:
Aroma = scent
Therapy = treatment, healing

Aromatic oils are derived from flowers, fruits, weeds, leaves, stems, roots, sap and tree trunks. They are used to relieve infection, pain and to soothe.
