    The beauty of Bakuchiol is its ability to gently rejuvenate skin over a 12 week period without the irritation and redness common with retinol. Long used in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, Bakuchiol is the potent compound extracted from the seed oil of the flowering Babchi herb. We love it because it’s gentle and suitable for sensitive skin, giving those with problem skin the opportunity to enjoy collagen boosting benefits previously only available with retinol use.

    Cacay Oil is a Vitamin A superstar in its own right, supporting Bakuchiol by delivering three times the Vitamin A levels of Rosehip and 50% more Vitamin C than Argan oil. It is rich in linoleic acid which plays a key role in supporting and strengthening the skin’s barrier function. Cacay provides long lasting hydration by preventing the hydrolipidic outer layer of our skin from drying out, protecting that essential moisture barrier. 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.

    Hemp Seed Oil is soothing and restorative with a huge array of phytonutrients. It's rich fatty acids linoleic acid, y-linoleic acid and a-lineolic that help boost the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Hemp also offers anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties to support inflammatory conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

    Olive Squalene 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.

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

    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, Argan Oil is a well known anti-aging 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.

    Rosehip is a vitamin rich all-rounder delivering high levels of Vitamin A and C, antioxidants with anti-aging properties, working to brighten and even skin tone. With anti-inflammatory properties, Rosehip Oil is gently astringent so tightens skin and pores, and contains moisturising nourishing fatty acids and vitamins 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.

    Acai Berry Oil 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 has 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.

    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.

    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.
