Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) anti-inflammatory and rich in antioxidants and minerals that help speed up the skin’s healing process.

Aqua (Water) required to bind many of the ingredients together. It is also necessary so that the water-soluble ingredients (such as Vitamin C) can be dispersed through the solution.

Argan Oil contains omega fatty acids, vitamin E, and linoleic acids which work to lightly moisturise, reduce acne, balance sebum levels and soothe skin. Think glow not grease.

Benzyl Alcohol a naturally occurring and synthetic ingredient (ours is natural), it’s used to preserve the formula.

Citrus Bergamia Fruit Oil (Bergamot) not just for adding a citrusy scent, bergamot has analgesic qualities which are fantastic for taking the pain out of aggressive spots.

Citrus Grandis Peel Oil (Grapefruit) full of vitamin C, vitamin A and lycopene, no wonder there’s always a jug of grapefruit juice at continental breakfasts. Those antioxidants will brighten skin a treat.

Cococaprylate gives formulas that silky soft slip without the need of synthetics. A miracle worker in our eyes.

Eugenia Caryophyllus Flower Oil (Clove) anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antibacterial – so anti it’s amazing and will stop infection and irritation running rife.

Ferula Galbaniflua Resin Oil (Galbanum) a toxin eradicator, it also slows down sebum production to leave skin smoother and acneic areas calmer.

Pelargonium Graveolens Oil (Geranium) fighting off infection with its anti-microbial make-up, this should be considered a bodyguard for your skin cells.

Pogostemon Cablin Oil (Patchouli) a go-to for regenerating new skin cells, this is a winning ingredient for keeping skin bouncy, tight and healthy. A bit like Spanx.

Punica Granatu, Oil (Pomegranate) – brimming with antioxidants that stop free radicals getting into skin and attacking healthy cells, it also repairs damage and reduces the breakdown of collagen fibres.

Rosa Canina Seed Oil (Rosehip) full of vitamin C that supports collagen production and wards off ultraviolet light damage caused by free radicals, this is also a mega hydrator.

Sclerotium Gum often derived from fermented mushrooms, this natural thickening agent makes products feel delightful on the skin. As an added extra it has skin-softening attributes to help create a dewy effect.

Vegetable Glycerin hydrating the skin by drawing water from the air into the skin’s outer layer, once there it’s on lock down, forming a protective coating that stops moisture loss. Magic.

Vitamin C fighting pigmentation, boosting collagen production and filling out fine lines, there’s a reason this antioxidant is on every derm’s list of essentials.

Xanthan Gum it’s important for formulas not to go icky and curdle and this is used to prevent oils separating as well as binding ingredients together.
