London: Health and beauty guru Janet Ginnings of London’s Curzon Street has created Indian Infusion, a collection of skincare products based on recipes her mother taught her as a child, at home in India.
Born in Bhopal, India, Janet learned about skincare and beauty from a very young age with regimes passed from generation to generation and was making her own products as a very young girl.
As a child, Janet had her head massaged by her amma or nanny, and her skin cleansed with chickpea flour, yoghurt and creams made into a dough and moisturised with real cream.
This early introduction to beauty treatments and natural ingredients led Janet to a lifetime love affair with the beauty industry, culminating in her opening her own hugely successful hair and beauty salon in Mayfair, London. Now Janet brings the knowledge of these ancient Indian recipes and treatments to her own skincare collection Indian Infusion A range of unique skin care products based on the rich beauty heritage of India combined with Janets unsurpassed knowledge of a woman and her skin
This specialist luxury collection of 11 products with natural ingredients to nourish and feed skin is based on those ancient Indian recipes tried and tested for generations. The ingredients provide the nutrients required for cell renewal. Key to the range is the inclusion of Wheatgrass juice. Wheatgrass is the very young shoot of wheat with all its most health promoting ingredients and its possibly the closest thing to the fountain of youth man has ever harnessed in skincare.
Wheatgrass Juice is the secret ingredient that makes Janet Ginnings Indian Infusion range stand out from the crowd. It is the wonder component that contains 20 amino acids, which are the basis of DNA (and the creator of regular skin cell renewal) as well as 102 vitamins and minerals. The wheatgrass plant contains high concentrations of chlorophyll, active enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and other nutrients and is one of the richest sources of vitamin A and vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, sodium, sulphur, zinc, cobalt, and protein. But for the purposes of skincare Wheatgrass juice is extremely good for skin problems. It improves complexion, treats acne, and removes acne scars . Protein and amino acids are central to the action and results of Indian Infusion. Miracle ingredients like wheat grass is important in the anti-ageing process.
