Firmer skin with the Ucuuba routine
Natura Ekos showcases this ingredient originating from the Amazonian forest and advises how to firm your skin in three simple steps
In the Tupi language, Ucuuba means butter tree. This plant, native to the Amazon, only grows near rivers. The seeds of its fruit produce a dry-feel butter that is rich in trimyristine, a molecule that stimulates the skin's natural collagen and elastin production. These two proteins are essential for keeping our skin young, firm and elastic.
The products in the Ucuuba range have a sweet scent combined with gentle floral notes.
The Ekos Ucuuba butter rangeconsists of a creamy solid soap, a shower cream, a moisturising body butter, and a moisturising hand cream.
Regular use of the products in this range will improve your skin's elasticity in no more than 14 days and will make it firmer in 28 days (after testing this product, 96% of the women surveyed had firmer skin). To achieve similar results, we recommend a daily three-step firming routine. Here are our recommendations:
1. Prepare your skin
Begin your skin care routine by using an exfoliating soap. This prepares your skin to be hydrated.
2. Apply a moisturiser
To stimulate circulation in the skin, apply the moisturiser using circular movements and a light pressure. Focus on the arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks and thighs.
3. The perfect finish
Finish your routine by applying a repairing butter. This product deeply regenerates the skin and provides super-hydration for 48 hours. Also use it on drier areas such as knees and elbows.
