Naturally active ingredients

Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
This comforting, calming oil has been widely used since the late 16th Century. More recently research has shown the benefits of this versatile oil to help induce a restful night’s sleep. We use a high altitude lavender from the Mount Ventoux area of France for its wonderful calming aroma.
East African Shea Butter (Vitellaria paradoxa nilotica)
This natural moisturiser comes from the kernel of the fruit of the East African shea tree: our kernels are sourced from a women’s collective group working in forests around Lira in northern Uganda. Shea butter enhances the barrier function of the epidermis, reducing the trans-epidermal water loss, retaining moisture and improving the elasticity of the skin.
Glycerin
The glycerin we use is always vegetable derived. It is a humectant (attracts water), drawing atmospheric water onto the skin to aid hydration.
Borage Oil (Borago officinalis)
Nicknamed the herb of gladness by the Romans because of its use in treating depression. The beautiful star shaped flowers of this plant give way to tiny seeds crammed with a health promoting plant oil. This oil is one of the richest sources of the essential fatty acid GLA (gamma linolenic acid), which helps to lock moisture onto the skin.
Pomegranate Extract (Punica granatum)
The pomegranate is a neat, rounded shrub or small tree that produces red apple-sized fruits, which contain fleshy pink seeds. The name pomegranate comes from the old French ‘seed apple’. Pomegranate extract is used in products for its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants neutralise free radicals.
Neroli Essential Oil (Citrus aurantium v. amara)
Also known as bitter orange oil, this floral scented oil comes from orange blossoms and is widely used in eau de cologne and perfume. Neroli oil has uplifting and restorative properties. For this reason aromatherapists use it to help treat depression, anxiety and insomnia.
Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima)
The flesh of the avocado contains nearly 50% plant oil. Highly nutritious, it is a good source of vitamin E, magnesium and linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid and leaves the skin smooth and soft.
Grapeseed Extract (Vitis vinifera)
Grape seeds are well known for their antioxidant properties which can help protect skin from damaging free radicals.
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.
Rosehip Oil (Rosa rubiginosa)
This oil is produced from the seeds contained within striking red rosehips. Considered a luxurious oil rosehip seed oil is a good source of essential fatty acids which help lock moisture onto the skin.
Cranberry Seed Oil (Vaccinium macrocarpon)
This oil is produced by pressing the seeds from cranberries. Rich in omegas 3, 6 and 9, it is an easily absorbed moisturising oil.
Chamomile Essential Oil/Extract (Anthemis nobilis)
This herb takes its name from the Greek kamai (ground) and melon (apple) because of the sweet apple-like fragrance it releases when trodden on. The essential oil is considered a gentle oil by aromatherapists and medical herbalists have used chamomile for soothing the skin for centuries.
