Pure excellence from such simple things.
We’ve been caring about ingredients long before it became fashionable. We started 15 years ago developing the finest in Natural skin care products for the beauty world, with No parabens, petrol-chemicals, alcohols, perfumes or gimmick ingredients. Just honest skin care...naturally of course!
Our products use only botanical plant ingredients. Some brands may claim to be botanical but simply use one or two % blended into a mixture of petro-chemicals - rendering the plant extracts virtually inactive. In order to get the maximum benefits from anything natural we blend these ingredients with only natural bases, so you get what you are paying for - a natural product.
Are the most wonderful of natures materials they contain the very things that are protecting the skin from free radicals including the skin cancerous UVA light, which is what spf’s don’t prevent and UVA light is the most ageing of free radicals.
These protectors are called antioxidants (mentioned above) and they come from plant oils. Vital oils are full of them they also contain vitamins, omegas and are the kick start of amino acids, the very building blocks of creating new cells and rejuvenating current ones...including building collagen. It’s no secret that olive oil is extremely good for our health in food and olive oil is from the family of vital oils.
Aromatherapy oils have been giving health benefits to hundreds of millions of people around the world. We use them for that very reason, blending in the world’s most expensive undiluted types i.e. ones not messed about with only pure which makes a huge difference. Then we combine them with protein rich plant extras for the nourishing, nutritious health benefits to the skin making a product so special and incredibly effective.
That is why our naturopathic range gives results that you will not get anywhere else!
Preserving natural products ...
Phenoxyethanol can be found naturally but can also be synthetically produced in a laboratory.
Phenoxyethanol is an anti fungal compound and derived from a form of a natural alcohol in fact it’s the reason why so many plants live. The phonel part is a 3 molecule compound of hydrogen /carbon /oxygen which really is the makeup of the human body, we don't actually use it to preserve our water based products, it’s in there to protect the preserving system itself because it’s so delicate thus the amount is almost untraceable its was actually recommended by the original professor would condemned parbens as a potential risk many years ago and it’s used by most natural and organic brands.
Water can breed bacteria and if you don’t prevent bacteria from growing in a product it can make you very ill or even life threatening so it has to in there by law to stop bacteria from growing.
The world heath authority, governments and most societies like the eczema society will not recommend a product without it using a recognised preservative which can last a reasonable time and show a cross spectrum of bacteria inhibitor, therefore you should really think twice about using things which don’t have one as in real scientific terms you don’t really know what could be lurking in such a product ie water even carry things like e coli
(We also don't need to preserve oils so it’s not in the main ‘stay on’ part of our products anyway)
used as an emollient that softens skin when used in appropriate amounts. it is derived commonly from coconut oil or palm oil. They can maintain skin's moisture balance and don't create greasiness if used properly. Theirs basically two forms of this ingredient: the synthetic type and the plant derived type (we use the plant derived version). A fatty alcohol (meaning it is an alcohol which comes from fat). It does not behave like a 'real alcohol' like for example ethanol or propanol . It can be used in water-in-oil emulsions, oil-in-water emulsions, and anhydrous formulation (cream, lotion, ointment, body butter, salt scrubs).
