Dates: from Mediterranean cuisine to your skin
Dates originate from South-East Asia and North Africa and have been a common ingredient in Mediterranean cooking and baking for centuries. Did you know that the date tree, the date palm, is also known as the tree of life? This would explain its beneficial properties for our body and skin.
Dates are strongly scented and flavoursome dried fruit. They are rich in sugars, vitamins A, B, C and D, magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, as well as antioxidants and glutamine. These characteristics make them effective at delaying the signs of skin ageing and reducing cellular oxidation, counteracting the damage caused by free radicals.
The stone inside dates is also useful in the cosmetics industry, highly regarded for its anti-ageing properties thanks to its content in phytosterols, isoflavones and vitamin E, which help prevent oxidative damage. Along these lines, at Depilève you can find two products formulated using the stones from dates, the fruit of paradise, such as our Tamer Wax in roll-on and strip wax versions.
Both formats are perfectly suited for extensive areas including the legs, arms, chest and back, and are not only effective at hair removal, but also work as a skin-rejuvenating treatment.
