BB cream is a multifunctional cream that is known as a Beauty Balm, Blemish Base or Brilliant Beauty.
BB cream could brighten skin like a lightener, even skin tone like a foundation, treat acne like a breakout treatment, hydrate like a moisturizer & protect like a sunscreen.
The concept originated in Germany in the 1960’s by a dermatologist that needed a product that would protect and sooth the skin of her patients after laser treatment, peels and surgery. In 1980’s the product became very popular for its lightning properties among Japanese and South Korean young television soap stars that were camera-ready with their porcelain white complexions that is very desirable in that part of the world. BB creams could be found in many combinations from 3-in-1 moisturizer, foundation & sunscreen to 10-in-1 with anti-aging and skin-perfecting elements.
The BB cream is a great option for women that do not have a lot of time or desire to apply several products in the morning. Our version of the BB cream is Sheer Tint Base. Made with a blend of antioxidants vitamin A, C, E & green tea extract, sheer tint base delicately covers flaws while providing skin with a sheer, healthy glow. Vitamin A is a powerful exfoliant, that decreases sebum (an oily secretion of the sebaceous glands) production and treats acne. Vitamin C improves skin elasticity, decreases wrinkles by stimulating collagen synthesis, promotes wound healing, and repairs sun damage. Vitamin E fights off free radicals that cause the signs of aging, repairs dry, rough skin. Green tea extract lightens skin, fights inflammation, rejuvenates skin cells and prevents skin cancer.
