|Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil||High in the types of fatty acids needed for troubled skin.|
|Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil||Wonderfully healthy for the skin. So many benefits, it might be best to Google "Olive Oil Skin" instead.|
|Cetostearyl Alcohol (also called Cetearyl Alcohol)||Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.|
|Squalene (Olive)||One of our favourite moisturising oils. It helps leave your skin moisturised and dewy. It is good for all skin types, including acne prone skin. |
Our body produces a small amount of squalene, but the amount diminishes when we get older, starting in our twenties. Squalene is required for our skin to keep it moisturised and fight aging. It is also a unique antioxidant from olives that protects our skin from free-radical damages.
Since Olive squalene's composition is very similar to human sebum, it can penetrate our skin very quickly to help our skin to fight dryness. It enhances skin elasticity and moisture retention.
|Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera)||Most people already know the soothing benefits of Aloe Vera. Because most people only use a small amount of cream, just adding normal Aloe wouldnt do much. So we use a very concentrated extract (100:1) to maximize the benefit.|
|Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract||Matricaria chamomilla extract contains active Flavonoid and Essential Oil compounds, which are particularly advantageous in the care of sensitive skin.|
|Centella Asiatica Extract||Centella asiatica promotes skin rejuvination.|
|Piroctone Olamine||Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient that we add to make sure the natural products are properly preserved.|
|Polysorbate 60 (Food Grade Emulsifier)||We always choose the most edible ingredients we can. Polysorbates are used in a lot of foods like Mayonnaise, Ice-cream etc to hold the cream and water together. We use them to help with the same thing.|
|Allantoin||Comfrey has long been associated with soft, healthy skin. Allantoin is one of the skin conditioners that have been purified from comfrey. Allantoin is thought to help maintain healthy skin by encouraging the removal of dead skin cells.|
|Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E)||We use natural Vitamin E. Its antioxidant action as well as free radical scavenger properties, help to keep the oils in our cream and on your skin, fresh and stable. |
|Xanthan Gum (Food Grade Thickener)||Xanthan Gum is used in a lot of foods and we use it to help keep our creams stable using food based ingredients.|
|Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract||Topical creams need to stay pure from bacteria,yeasts and mould. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We think Hops are a great natural preservative, and some people can smell Hops in our creams.|
