Argan Oil (Argania spinosa kernel oil)
Argan oil’s exotic roots lie in Morocco, where it has traditionally been used in the treatment of dry skin as well as a number of other skin ailments such as acne, eczema, wrinkles and any skin inflammation.
This intensely hydrating oil is rich in essential fatty acids, including omega oils, linoleic acid and oleic acid, and vitamin E, an antioxidant. The oil helps skin become less sensitive and has skin balancing properties.
But the benefits of this oil are more than just skin deep. The sustainable, fair-trade production of Argan oil is creating a positive impact and empowering the women in Moroccan cooperatives, ensuring that they earn a fair price for their endeavours which in turn benefits their families and the entire village.
Vitamins A and E
Bursting with powerful antioxidants such as Vitamins A and Vitamin E-rich unsaturated Oleic Acid, Olive oil helps repair and renew damaged skin without clogging the pores. It has the natural ability to stimulate cells and return the skin to a firmer, smoother and healthier state. The use of olive oil for its moisturising properties dates back to ancient Mediterranean civilisations. With the help of biotechnology, we are able to use highly purified olive oil, which doesn’t clog pores but moisturises the skin perfectly.
Vitamin B Complex Vitamin C
Rosmarinic Acid bio-extract from Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis leaf bio-extract)
One of nature’s most powerful anti-oxidants, Lemon Balm dates back to early Roman recipes. Due to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, Romans used it to treat bee and even scorpion stings. Today we know that Rosmarinic Acid eliminates damaging free radicals 3.24 times more efficiently than Vitamin C and 1.6 times better than Vitamin E*. This rare, magnificent ingredient is difficult to obtain but it is the best active for an anti-oxidant rich product as it has anti-mutagenic properties, so it acts as a shield for DNA against solar UV and other ionising radiations.
Barley bio-extract (Hordeum distichon bio-extract)
Barley medicinal use dates back to 7000 BC. The unique combination of zinc and selenium found in Barley holds countless benefit for the skin. Zinc speeds up the body’s healing process while selenium preserves the skin’s elasticity and protects skin from free radical damage. Barley bio-extract has the ability to enhance skin’s elasticity giving your complexion more supple and toned appearance.
