Sea Buckthorn Berry – Signature Ingredient:

High in Vitamins C, A and E, Sea Buckthorn berry has been known around the world and across centuries for it’s healing and restorative properties. Most powerfully, it appears to promote cell tissue regeneration, providing skin with youth, elasticity and restored health. It is touted as a natural sun block and a wrinkle smoother. As a strong free radical scavenger for the skin, this fruit can enhance immune activity and heal damaged skin.

Safflower Oil:

Used as a lubricant with occlusive properties, meaning that it acts as a protective barrier to prevent water from leaving your skin. It works with your skin to soften dryness, smooth roughness and soothe some skin problems.

Grapeseed Oil:

The seed of the grape plant (Vitis vinifera) yields a fine textured, linoleic-rich oil which has been shown to have strong antioxidant and anti-degenerative properties. It is also one of several plant emollients that mimic the lipid content of the skin. It helps stabilize and maintain the structure of the skin’s complex inter-cellular matrix, preventing moisture loss and cell damage and promoting skin’s soft, smooth, healthy appearance.

Apricot oil:

Prized for its high levels of vitamin E and its skin softening qualities. Important for a facial cream, this oil easily penetrates the skin without leaving an oil feeling behind. Also rich in essential fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acid and vitamin A, apricot offers elasticity, clarity and suppleness to mature, dry and sensitive skin.

Sesame oil:

Sesame oil is known for its soothing and tranquilizing properties. Replete with vitamin E and B-complex, as well as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, sesame serves as a powerful antioxidant. It’s also a great protector shielding the skin from problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and blemishes and screening it from the sun’s rays.

Essential oil blend:

Neroli (Citrus aurantium – Orange Blossom): As already seen, this small tree is a member of the Rutaceae family. Whilst Sweet Orange oil is extracted from the peel of the fruit of Citrus aurantium, Neroli oil is extracted by steam distillation from the flower buds of the same plant. The oil is yellowish in colour and has a floral-citrusy aroma which is nothing short of heavenly and it takes one tonne of flowers rto obtain one kilogram of oil – hence, this is another of the more expensive essential oils.

Lavender: Antiseptic, antifungal and cleansing, lavender has long been touted for it’s relaxing effects on the nervous system.

Geranium: Geranium oil has a couple of very positive effects on the skin – it boosts circulation and also invigorates the skin, while having a general cleansing action, but also balances the production of sebum and helps to improve skin elasticity. It is a boost to the lymphatic system as well. Soothing dry skin, clearing complexions and balancing oily skin, geranium’s scent is calming to the skin and the mind.

All Glyceryl based ingredients are incorporated for their fatty acids and glycerin which act as lubricants to the skin to give the skin a smooth surface.
