INGREDIENTS AND SKIN CARE GOALS

Jojoba Oil hydrates the skin and has antioxidant & anti-inflammatory properties. It is helpful in reducing redness and calming skin. As a wax ester, jojoba oil mimics natural sebum, so it helps condition & seal in moisture, softening and smoothing your skin. When combined with beeswax, it also helps protect the skin barrier, reducing trans-epidermal water loss and sealing in moisture.

Olive Oil is anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, with vitamins A, D, K & E, squalene & rich in fatty acids. Reduces water loss from skin.

Castor Oil helps repair damaged skin cells and nourishes and heals scars with consistent application. Castor oil is high in fatty acids that can penetrate deep into scar tissue, encouraging the healthy growth of other skin cells.

Gotu Kola contains active compounds that increase circulation and boost the growth of new skin cells, helping to repair damaged tissue.

Dandelion can help reduce inflammation, scar visibility and assist in healing of the skin. The roots of dandelions are rich in vitamins and minerals (Vit A, E & B complex).

Arnica has been shown in studies to help reduce the visibility of scars, and it has been used to assist with bruises, cuts, and other skin ailments

Rosehips is a natural source of vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that can help with everything from irregular pigmentation to collagen production. Not only can vitamin C help reduce acne-related inflammation, the powerhouse ingredient boosts collagen and elastin production to encourage skin cell regeneration

Lavender may help with visible  inflammation, and can be an effective way to help scars (including acne scars). Lavender oil has also been known to help with concerns such as pigmentation associated with aging, scarring, sun damage, and more. It contains potent antioxidants that can help against free radical damage and keep your skin looking brighter and more even toned.

Calendula is known for its wound-healing properties, as it can promote cell regeneration and tissue repair. This makes it an ideal ingredient for treating minor cuts, burns, and abrasions, as well as helping to improve the appearance of scars.

Chickweed has been used for miscellaneous scarring, fibrotic, and inflammatory skin conditions, and hypertrophic and keloid scars, all with good results.

Mango Butter offers antioxidants and provides moisture, without adding excess pore-clogging ingredients.

Moringa Oil  contains powerful plant hormones and fatty acids that may help minimize the appearance of stretch marks & scars, leaving skin soft & well pampered.

Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil can help reduce inflammation in the skin, prevent future flare ups, help to fade scars and promote an overall more even and smoother skin texture. The fruit oil contains omega 6 and the highly sought after omega 7, helpful for aiding in skin repair and regeneration. It’s fast absorbing and can help to soothe inflammation and reduce redness.

Frankincense Resin is excellent in toning, aiding in skin tone, as well as addressing scar tissue. It is antiseptic and acts as an astringent.  

Turmeric helps form healthy tissues and collagen to assist in healing wounds faster and reduce the chance of scarring.

Beeswax is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, and will help help seal in moisture without clogging pores.
