Why should you use a toner?

Our faces are vulnerable to the effects of our  environments. We all know things like cold and hot weather, dry conditions, humidity, air conditioners, dust, pollution, and UV rays influence our skins. They inflame and dry out our skins, especially on our faces. Toning facial mists can help you to cure that dry afternoon skin…

Facial toners prepare our skins for moisturizers and serums, ensuring that water is trapped in the skin. They also help to get rid of the last of the facewash, oil and stubborn dirt. They must also offer extra benefits like toning and moisturizing.

Let me explain to you the science behind Fynemist Toning Mist ingredients…

And for those of you who are like me – wanting scientific proof for everything, I have linked some of the studies – I could not do them all – there are too many…but if you are interested in the science behind our Toning Facial Mist ingredients just Google for research papers them. There are many! 


1. Hemi-Squalane

Research has shown that Squalane and Hemi-Squalane provide almost impossible to believe benefits to your skin:

  • Emollient that is quickly and efficiently absorbed deep into the cellular level of the skin, restoring suppleness and flexibility without leaving an oily residue. Improves skin’s roughness and reduce appearance of wrinkles. Its small particle size is used to piggyback other ingredients deep into the skin. 
  • Strong antioxidant to fight free radicals and  skin damage  to protect skin from ageing.
  • Antitumor properties, protecting your skin from carcinogens.
  • Detoxifies skin.
  • Regular use can also boost collagen production, resulting in firmer skin.
  • Anti-inflammatory that can reduce redness, swelling, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and rosacea.
  • Protects the skin from lipid peroxidation due to exposure to UV light and other sources of oxidative damage 
  • Non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores.
  • Even though it is technically oil, it does not have an oily feel.
  • Antibacterial – Used in treating skin disorders such as seborrheic dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, or atopic dermatitis.

2. Vegetable Glycerine

(For anyone interested in the more scientific mechanisms of this amazing skincare ingredient, I seriously recommend reading this in-dept analysis on the role and functioning of Glycerine in skincare)

Optimum formulation for Glycerine:

According to the above-mentioned research, the composition of the formulation is critical for the delivery of maximum glycerine benefit. The concentration of glycerine must be above 3% to be an effective moisturizer and skin conditioner. Glycerine must be mixed with water to become active and it is most effective in an oil-in-water emulsion compared to a water-in-oil emulsion. 

So, once again our Fynemist Facial Toning Mist ticks all the boxes!

Topical use of Glycerine:

            – Increases skin hydration in as few as 10 days.

            – hydrates the outer layer of the skin by drawing water from the air. 

            – glycerin is the most effective humectant in comparison with numerous others, including: AHAs, hyaluronic acid and urea.

3. Aloe Ferox Gel

Aloe Vera is a well-known ingredient in beauty and health products. In this case we have used our own locally harvested Aloe Ferox instead of the American Aloe Vera. This is not only because we always try to buy and support local, but also because Aloe Ferox is sooooo much better than Aloe Vera!

So, here is the long list of reasons that Aloe Gel is so good for the skin:

Lastly – it has no dermal toxicity or side-effects 

4. Witch hazel

Topical use of Witch Hazel:

  • Tightens pores through astringent action due to tannins it contain.

  • Protects Against Skin Damage

             – powerful antioxidant properties help protect skin against damage.

             – tannins act as a barrier, preventing inflammation-causing substances from entering skin                    cells.

  • Protects against cancer

            – helps neutralize harmful free radicals and prevents the spread of skin cancer cells

            – slows skin tumor growth in mice exposed to radiation.

7. Rosemary Essential Oil

Inhaling Rosemary oil:

  • Promotes thinking, concentration and memory –

            – significantly increased image and numerical memory

            – prevents the breakdown of acetylcholine, a brain chemical important for thinking, concentration and memory.

            – experiment – asked math questions, speed and accuracy increased. 

            – reported increased concentration and information recall on test.

  • Refreshes body and mind

            – subjects became more active and stated that they felt “fresher”. Their brain wave activity confirms the stimulatory effects of rosemary oil 

            – reported feeling about 30% more mentally refreshed and about 25% less drowsy compared to smelling a placebo oil. This increase in alertness                corresponded to changes in brain waves and increases in heart rate, breathing and blood pressure.

            – Applying diluted rosemary oil to your skin may provide similar benefits, as it can reach your brain via this route.
