    BOTANICAL ACTIVES

    Kakadu Plum has been prized by Aboriginal people in Australia for centuries as an incredible superfood. Kakadu Plum has the highest level of Vitamin C of any fruit in the world, 75 times that of oranges. Natural antioxidants in the form of Vitamin C and polyphenols stimulate the synthesis of pro-collagen to help promote smoother, more supple skin and protection from free radicals.

    Cacay Oil has three times the Vitamin A levels of Rosehip Oil and 50% more Vitamin C than Argan oil. Cacay is rich in linoleic acid, with Vitamin A for cell rejuvenation and E for elasticity as well as vitamins and essential fatty acids. Cacay provides long lasting hydration, and protects the hydrolipidic outer layer of our skin from drying out. With anti-inflammatory properties, Cacay absorbs quickly, brightens skin tone and may also lighten hyperpigmentation with consistent use. Excellent for reducing scars and healing blemishes.

    Argan Oil is rich in Vitamin E, omega fatty acids, linoleic acids for soothing skin nourishment and boasting an amazing host of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. A well known skin active, Argan oil also helps to regulate sebum production which helps prevent breakouts, and its high concentration of Vitamin E can help fade scars and smooth skin texture.

    Black Cumin Seed Oil / Nigella Sativa has been used for centuries to soothe troubled skin. With exceptionally high in antioxidants and excellent for mature skin and dry, irritated skin conditions, Black Cumin’s anti-inflammatory, skin hydrating and anti-aging effects have been scientifically proven.

    Acai is an anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and anti-acne super-active with high antioxidant levels, protective and moisturising fatty acids, and vital minerals and vitamins. Acai Berry Oil is rich in powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe skin and limit moisture loss while its impressive combination of Omega 3, 6 and 9, make it deeply nourishing for dry skin and especially dry, irritated skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

    Red Raspberry Seed Oil is packed with antioxidants Vitamins A and E which aid skin cell regeneration, and essential fatty acids to fight oxidative stress (with the highest concentration of alpha linoleic acid of any fruit seed oil). Red Raspberry helps inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, rosacea and psoriasis.

    Super soothing and gentle, Jojoba is anti-inflammatory, anti microbial and can aid in acne prevention. Jojoba Oil has many striking similarities to the sebum naturally produced by the skin, allowing it to penetrate at a deeper level. Deeply moisturising and easily absorbed. Along with antioxidants, Jojoba is naturally high in Vitamins A, D and E and nutrients to create glowing skin. This gentle oil balances oily skin, soothes sensitive skin and hydrates dry and aging skin.

    Offering high levels of Vitamin A and C, Rosehip oil has anti aging properties and can brighten and even skin tone due to antioxidants. With anti-inflammatory properties, Rosehip Oil has astringent properties helping to tighten skin and pores, and contains moisturising nourishing fatty acids and vitamins A and C for a deeply nourishing effect on ageing and dehydrated skin. It's useful for dry, damaged and irritated skin and helps to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Rosehip oil can also lighten or fade scars and blemishes.

    Squalene is the skin's main lipid, a built-in moisturiser, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Over time as natural levels decrease with age, Olive Squalene acts as a natural lubricant and moisture barrier to help prevent dry skin and keep it supple by preventing water loss.

    A power packed infusion of New Zealand native Kawakawa brings together the anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, antioxidant and antibacterial properties of Apricot Kernel Oil with the skin-soothing and nourishing properties of Kawakawa.

    Antioxidant rich Vitamin E fights free radicals and supports skin elasticity - it provides exceptional benefits when combined with Vitamin C (as it is here), and also acts as our natural preservative.

    Your Questions Answered

    Are your facial products suitable for all skin types?

    Yes, they are 100% natural
    and formulated to be suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin.

    Whenever you add a new product into your skincare routine we do recommend that you always patch test first before use.

    Our Bakuchiol Rejuvenate
    Serum includes 1% of a high-potency Bakuchiol extract.

    Scientific studies have shown .5% Bakuchiol extract in a formulation is as effective as .5% retinol at
    improving hyperpigmentation and fine lines when used daily for 12 weeks, all without the skin irritation common with retinol. Keep in mind bakuchiol won't
    be comparable to stronger retinoids such as retinaldehyde or retinoic acid.

    Bakuchiol is a gentle
    alternative to retinol, but it is a potent botanical active so we recommend patch testing first and building up use if your skin is sensitive. Please message us if you'd like more specific recommendations.

    Is your beauty range safe for senstive skin?

    All our natural skin care range was developed with sensitive skin in mind.

    In fact many of our botanical actives actively reduce inflammation
    and skin irritation.

    Do you have products suitable for blemish-prone skin?

    Yes we do! Our Kawakawa Cleansing Bar with Chlorophyll has had great results as a gentle, balancing cleanser for those suffering with acne due to the anti-bacterial properties of the Kawakawa Chlorophyll extract.

    We recommend pairing this
    with Bakuchiol Rejuvenate Serum which includes 1% bakuchiol extract known to exhibit anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and balance sebum (oil) production.

    One study* found that a formulation with 1% bakuchiol extract applied twice daily reduced acne by 57% after six weeks.

    Management of Acne-affected Skin. (Chaudhuri R, Marchio F., 2011)

    Are your natural skin care products effective?

    Absolutely. Nothing but good goes into our natural skin care and all our beauty products are free from nasty chemicals, skin irritants or synthetic fillers.

    Are your hair care bars safe for children too?

    Absolutely. Our hair care bars are designed with all the family in mind.

    How should I store my hair care bars?

    When not in use, store your bars away from water - e.g. outside the shower - on a well-draining soap dish to make it last as long as possible. A saucer with pebbles is a nice DIY soap dish idea.
