Unrefined shea butter - Shea butter is obtained from the nut of the karite tree, a long-lived tree which grows wild in savannah Africa. The unrefined form of shea butter is rarely used in skin care in the west but has been used for centuries by African people for its healing effects and in cooking. The refined version which is favoured by most skin care manufacturers is pure white and odourless, and unfortunately depleted of many beneficial nutrients. Unrefined shea butter is one of the best emollient moisturisers available, and is better than mineral oil at forming a waterproof barrier to the skin. It is rich in vitamin E, antioxidants and has strong anti-inflammatory effects making it extremely useful in treating eczema and other inflammatory skin conditions. In clinical studies it has shown to be anti-ageing, probably because of its anti-protease activity which inhibits breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin.
Camellia oil - Derived from the seeds of the plant that gives us tea, camellia oil is extremely rich in pholyphenols which have potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties. It is also thought to reduce UV damage to the skin and reduce collagen breakdown.
Jojoba oil - Jojoba oil improves the skin's ability to form a barrier as well as to heal from damage. It has been shown to stimulate collagen production and help the skin protect itself against UV light damage. It has anti-inflammatory properties, helps balance oil production in the skin, and reduces the build up of sebum in clogged pores.
Macadamia oil - his beautifully light and readily absorbed oil has a good ratio of the anti-inflammatory linoleic aand oleic acids. It is also rich in vitamin E, and contains anti-inflammatory phytosterols.
Coconut oil - This beautiful cooling oil is light on the skin and a wonderful emollient. Rich in saturated fatty acids, particularly medium chain fatty acids which have some anti-microbial activity, and in the polyphenol antioxidant ferulic acid which is a more powerful antioxidant than vitamin E.
Sandalwood essential oil - This precious organic oil is extracted from Western Australian sandalwood. Unlike the Indian variety which is almost extinct as a result of unsustainable harvesting, Australian sandalwood is a well managed and renewable resource. Australian sandalwood is best known for its ability to induce a state of calmness, improve mental clarity, aid relaxation and promote a meditative state. It is a highly effective anti-bacterial agent, active against a range of bacteria, and has also recently been shown to have anti-inflammatory activity on a par with the Indian variety.
Vanilla essential oil - This luxuriously fragrant oil extracted from the vanilla pod is rich in antioxidants, helping fight the actions of free radicals in the skin. Its fragrance is also known to act as an anti-depressant.
Rosemary leaf extract - A powerful antioxidant which helps prevent oxidation of the oils in the product, and also provides anti-oxidant benefits to the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and skin toning properties.
