What woman doesn’t want youthful, flawless, radiant skin? After all, most of us know that you can cake on layers of makeup onto your face, but true beauty starts with a healthy complexion. Nowadays the choice of how to attain immaculate, glowing skin is vast. You can opt for simple facials, chemical peels, Botox, filler injections, micro-dermabrasion, laser treatments and even surgery. But why go the drastic route when you can simply apply a cream that promises incredible results?
Gigi Amar, a Montreal woman, swears by her recently launched cream Frequence. “After using my cream for just one week my co-workers asked me if I had undergone a cosmetic procedure,” said an enthusiastic Amar when we sat down for a cup of coffee, outside the hair salon she works at in Montreal, “they said that I was glowing and I felt I was.”
The creation of Frequence actually happened accidentally. Essentially out of despair and need. Amar had an irritating rash, which no dermatologist could cure. After too many sleepless nights she had had enough. Amar rushed to Home Depot where she purchased an Aloe Vera plant. She threw it in the blender with some other natural products she remembered were stashed in a drawer. She applied the concoction to the rash and was instantly relieved of the pain. And to her surprise the rash was gone by the next morning.
A native of Morocco, Amar recounts how her grandmother and mother had been avid users of their country’s natural resources, especially of Argan oil. Extracted from Argan trees that thrive in the South West of Morocco Amar explains that “Argan oil, one of the carrier oils in my cream, is and has been revered as the most powerful, most precious oils by the Berbers, the native people of Morocco.”
In her youth Amar had disregarded the benefits of Argan oil and the other natural ingredients, such as rose water or Frankincense oil. But with her pain alievated and rash gone Amar had a change of heart. Maybe her grandmother and mother were onto something?
Amar started researching the ingredients highly praised by her female ancestors. Soon she discovered scientific evidence that proved their incredible abilities. Over the course of time, while continuing her research, she added and mixed more ingredients into her initial concoction. “I was like a chemist, building on that first batch, adding more ingredients. I bought books and read more and more,” Amar stated.
After 25 years in the making, she came up with what is now Frequence, which she used to sell privately to clients.
In a world saturated with beauty products one wonders what makes Frequence different from the myriad face creams that one can chose from?
Whereas seventy percent of the cosmetic industry uses distilled water in their products, which ultimately dilutes their effectiveness, Frequence uses seventy percent therapeutic organic hydrolates, such as rose and orange blossom flower waters and Aloe Vera (also considered a water). These waters are advantageous because they contain active ingredients that penetrate the skin and supply moisture directly to the tissue. They not only provide extreme hydration, but also have softening and cooling abilities and anti-inflammatory properties.
The use of seven carrier oils in Frequence also distinguishes it from other products on the market. Carrier oils transmit oil onto the skin. They hold powerful antioxidants that are high in essential fatty acids. Frequence’s carrier oils include: argan, apricot kernel, grape seed, palm, coconut, evening prime rose and avocado oils.
On top of carrier oils Frequence contains a mixture of twenty-four essential oils. Amar likes to refer to these as the “plant’s lifeblood” as they are extracted through distillation or expression. Essential oils are effective because they’re small enough in molecular size to quickly penetrate the skin’s cell membranes. This results in increasing the skin’s oxygen levels by 21% within 20 minutes of application. Essential oils also contain powerful and natural antioxidants that gobble up free radicals. “Basically they stop the aging process,” explained Amar.
Myrrh oil and Frankincense are two very important essential oils in Amar’s cream, “they go beyond being physically beneficial for the skin. They have ingredients that directly effect the hypothalamus, pituitary and amygdale glands.” These are glands that affect our emotions. According to Amar these oils help focus the mind and overcome stress. And there’s more. In Biblical times Myrrh and Frankincense were used by the highest of priests before entering temples. Therefore, their quality goes beyond the tactile. They possess a spiritual property and perhaps, as Amar avidly believes, a powerful beauty secret.
Amar chose to name her cream Frequence because each essential oil can actually be measured in either Megahertz, which measure the bioelectrical frequencies in humans, foods and plants. Amar explained that “at 68 Megahertz the body is healthy, but starting at 58 Megahertz it’s not.” Essential oils carry a frequency between 50 to 320 Megahertz and create an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus and fungus can’t live. “Each oil has a frequency and each of our organs and body parts has a frequency. The frequency of an oil is attracted by a like frequency within the body,” she explained.
The ORAC text, which stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity, is another method of measuring essential oils. The higher the ORAC score in an essential oil the more capable that particular oil is at destroying free radicals, thus delaying the aging process.
Using the power of natural products Frequence is a unique cream with a plethora of benefits. As Amar likes to put it, “from improving elasticity and tone, to nourishing and energizing the skin on a high frequency energy level.” So what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a jar of Frequence. Your skin will thank you for it.
