Anti-inflammatory - calming & soothing.
Anti-microbial - prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus.
Here are just a few of our plant powered ingredients and their benefits:
ACAI FRUIT STEM CELL EXTRACT – These extracts increase ATP synthesis, decrease ageing lines and wrinkles and enhance collagen and elastin. They offer powerful anti-oxidant protection with natural sun protection. Considered very age-defying.
BETA GLUCAN (oat-derived) - Beta glucan is a form of soluble fibre made from the cell walls of oats. Used in skin care for centuries, oats help to relieve itching and pain, heal minor wounds and burns, moisturise and smooth the skin. Recent studies suggest that the molecules are small enough to penetrate the epidermis. When applied topically, oat beta glucan helps to reduce wrinkles.
BURITI FRUIT OIL (Mauritia flexuosa) – This fruit oil is an exotic wonder from the Amazon Rainforest, a product of the buriti palm tree which is known by the natives as the “tree of life.” The oil protects DNA, boosts collagen, increases Beta Glucan, stimulates immune cells, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Helps in lightening dark spots and also protects against damage caused by sun exposure. Restores skin elasticity. Helps to protect the membranes surrounding skin cells which keep the skin cells healthy longer. Its emollient properties help to rebuild, moisturise and rehydrate skin cells. Anti-inflammatory properties help soothe skin conditions such as redness, rashes, sensitive skin and irritation.
GOJI BERRY FRUIT EXTRACT (Lycium chinense) – High in antioxidant properties, Goji berry’s oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC) is 25,000 (compared to blueberries' 2,500). It is rich in calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, selenium, Vitamin B and Vitamin C. In a study done in China in 1991, it has been shown that the berries’ phytochemical helps to prevent the oxidation of DNA and restore damaged DNA. Some of the attributes of the Goji include aiding in sun protection, boosting collagen, reducing inflammation and promoting a healthy and youthful glow.
COQ10 – (Ubiquinol) – This is a powerful antioxidant produced naturally in the skin. Its functions are to increase cellular energy production, protect from and repair sun damage. It stimulates collagen and elastin production, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It is helpful in lightening and brightening the skin, supports wound healing and decreases inflammation.
PEONY ROOT EXTRACT (Paeonia tactiflora) - This extract has been used medicinally for centuries to boost microcirculation, treat inflammation and relieve pain. Studies have shown a significant decrease in hyper-pigmentation of the skin. Peony Root Extract optimises cell energy (increases ATP by 25%), Increases collagen III 53%, Increases epidermis thickness by 11%, Increases dermal fibres by 28%, Increases elasticity by 9%.
