Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima oil)
The Spaniards claim to have “discovered” avocados in the 17th century but of course the benefits of this fruit were reaped for thousands of years prior to their discovery. Avocado oil promotes skin healing and regeneration. Due to high concentration of Vitamins A, D and E and Omega 9 fatty acids it provides protection against ageing.
Cupuaçu Butter (Theobroma grandiflorum seed butter)
‘Capuaçu’ directly translates to “food for the gods” and is native to Brazil’s Amazonian region. It is valued for its taste and benefit of providing relief for various skin conditions. It allows for long-lasting moisture retention, making it ideal for dry skin. This magic ingredient is packed with phytosterol, antioxidants and flavonoids, which hold countless benefits for the skin due to their ability to soothe dry skin and reduce wrinkles by increasing skin elasticity.
Mango Seed bio-extract (Mangifera indica seed bio-extract)
For centuries mango seeds derivatives have been used to cure sunburned skin, stretch marks and even scars. This beautifully smooth bio-extract is softening and soothing to the skin. Its rich content of essential fatty acids as well as Vitamin A and C, makes it extremely useful for revitalising and improving the appearance of the skin.
Vitamin A is essential to cell production and growth. It stimulates cells in the connective skin tissues to produce collagen and other fibres. It helps to promote healthy and youthful skin by keeping it firm and smooth.
This is a powerful anti-oxidant. It blocks free radicals, helps skin fight environmental aggressors and promotes skin’s elasticity which is crucial for preventing premature ageing.
Vitamin D is an all-round skin care ingredient. It promotes collagen production and encourages more radiant, and even toned skin. Having enough of it in our skin helps to minimise acne.
Calcium supports the skin on a cellular lever, helping skin cells to become stronger and absorb more nutrients. It helps to strengthen skin cell walls. Calcium is widely used to increase skin firmness and combat over-sensitivity and to help sensitive skin become more resistant to environmental aggression.
Iron provides skin with life-giving oxygen, thereby improving the appearance of skin and giving it a healthy, radiant glow.
This is used for its anti-inflammatory properties and moisture retention capacity.
This is one of four most common minerals in the cells. It’s essential for the optimisation of skin functions. It helps to protect skin from inflammation. Magnesium is also essential for preventing premature ageing of the skin.
Omega-9 Fatty Acid- Oleic Acid enhances the ability of active ingredients to penetrate deeply into the skin. At the same time, because it is high in saturated fatty acids, it leaves a soothing, non-greasy film on the skin that reduces trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL).
Essential Fatty Acids in the form of Omega 6 will aid skin recovery and repair. Omega 6 strengthens the protective barrier. In addition to protective functions it has ability to increase hydration, skin’s softness and elasticity.
Zinc has powerful healing properties and a history of being used to treat burns and scars. We used it due to its ability to strengthen the immune system of the skin. Zinc promotes skin tissue rejuvenation. It helps to prevent breakouts by regulating the activity of the oil glands. This universal ingredient is an anti-oxidant which promotes youthful looking skin by helping to reduce the impact of free radicals on the skin and promoting collagen production.
