Naturally active ingredients

Blue Seakale Extract (Crambe maritima)
A member of the cabbage family, sea kale is a perennial halophyte (salt-loving plant) perfectly adapted to the nutrient-poor conditions of coastal sand and shingle where it is found in the wild. While Crambe maritima is native to our island home, it is a rare and protected species on the Isle of Wight. The seakale we use is harvested from sustainable plantations of seakale in Brittany, France.
Patchouli Essential Oil (Pogostemon cablin)
Patchouli has reviving and stimulating properties and is used by aromatherapists to help soothe skin and help calm stress. It is even reported to be a mild aphrodisiac! The sweet, spicy, heady odour of patchouli makes it a very popular fragrance ingredient.
Cedarwood - Virginian Essential Oil (Juniperus virginiana)
This essential oil has a woody odour reminiscent of pencil sharpenings. It is widely used in fine fragrances and aftershave lotions.
Geranium Essential Oil (Pelargonium graveolens)
This essential oil provides a wonderfully uplifting fragrance. Pelargonium graveolens, known as rose-scented geranium has a powerful rose-like odour. This luxurious oil is most commonly used in aromatherapy for its toning and balancing properties.
Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis)
The gel found in this cactus-like plant’s fat juicy fronds contain active ingredients to help cool, soothe and soften the skin. Aloe vera has been used for more than 6000 years to treat a variety of skin ailments, including sunburn, blisters and burns.
Abyssinian Seed Oil (Crambe Abyssinica)
The Crambe Abyssinica is an oilseed crop belonging to the family of Brassicaceae. It is an annual plant with a higher resistance against drought in comparison to other oilseed crops due to a long tap root.
Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus limon)
Lemon essential oil is cold pressed from the peel of the fruit. The oil is contained within glands in the outer layer of the peel. The oil is used in aromatherapy and has a refreshing and uplifting effect, and is sometimes referred to as 'the sunshine oil'. Studies have shown that dispersing lemon oil into the atmosphere helps improve concentration; in Japan it is used in this way and is said to reduce typing errors in the workplace.
Sweet Orange Fruit Extract (Citrus aurantium dulcis)
Juice, frozen and fresh, is the primary commercial product made from the fruit of the sweet orange. From honey and marmalade to sweets, all parts of the fruit are used in cuisines around the globe. Sweet orange fruit extract’s inherent acidity helps to flatten the cuticles of the hair shaft leaving hair shiny and smooth.
Vanilla Extract (Vanilla planifolia)
Responsibly sourced from Madagascar, the flowers have to be pollinated by hand and when harvested, the seedpods are carefully cured for around 6 months to produce the distinctive rich, warm scent. Our fragrance house’s goal in Madagascar is to secure supply, ensuring full traceability and high quality through an exclusive partnership with 14 villages. The programme also includes actions on education, with 4 schools built in 4 different villages, and food crop autonomy.
Apple Fruit Extract (Pyrus malus/Malus x domestica)
Belonging to the rose family, these pomaceous tree fruits are related to pears and quinces. More than 15,000 named varieties of apples have been developed over centuries of cultivation, but only around 100 are commercially grown. Apple extract is used for its inherent acidity in our Haircare range. This helps to flatten the cuticles of the hair shaft leaving hair shiny and smooth. Idared, Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples are the source of our extract.
Kalahari Melon Seed Oil (Citrullus lanatus)
The biological ancestor of the watermelon. It is native to the semi-arid zones of the Kalahari Desert as it requires long periods of heat and dryness for optimal growth.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol)
This antioxidant helps protect skin against free radical damage caused by pollution and the sun’s radiation. We only use premium natural source vitamin E which is up to three times more potent than the synthetic variety.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil (Daucus carota)
The carrot’s umbrella-shaped clusters of small, white to green-yellow flowers are followed by small, oval, dull brown fruits commonly referred to as seeds. The oil obtained from these seeds has a distinctive sweet-spicy, earthy fragrance and is commonly used in chypre and oriental perfumes.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil (Limnanthes alba)
Meadowfoam is a wildflower native to the interior valleys of Central California. Identified as a potential crop for plant-based, renewable-source raw materials, meadowfoam is also used for crop rotation to help farmers fallow their fields whilst generating income. When in flower the fields take on the appearance of a mass of white foam. The oil helps to condition and smooth the hair shaft.
Rosemary Essential Oil/Extract (Rosmarinus officinalis)
This renowned and once sacred herb has been used for centuries in beauty preparations. Rosemary essential oil has a fresh pungent aroma and is very invigorating and stimulating. The extract has beneficial antioxidant properties.
