Unrefined shea butter - 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. The refined version is depleted of many beneficial nutrients. Unrefined shea butter is one of the best emollient moisturisers available for 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 - 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 has been shown to stimulate collagen. It has anti-inflammatory properties, helps balance oil production in the skin, and reduces the build up of sebum in clogged pores.
Macadamia oil - Rich in palmitoleic acid, which is important in helping delay premature ageing, since the natural level of palmitoleic acid reduces with age. It is also rich in lineoleic acid, which has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity.
Coconut oil - Rich in saturated fatty acids, particularly medium chain fatty acids which have some anti-microbial activity, and in the antioxidant vitamin E.
Marula oil - This truly precious oil is extremely high in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory fatty acids, vitamin E and has anti-microbial activity.
Sea buckthorn oil - This precious oil is packed with vitamin E, beta-carotene and other anti-oxidants, and is one of the most powerful anti-oxidant oils available. It has a unique fatty acid composition, containing omega- 3,6,9 and 7 fatty acids. With both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activities, this oil is considered to aid skin regeneration and to be anti-ageing to the skin.
Borage oil - Rich in gamma linolenic acid, one of the essential fatty acids that is vital in the maintenance of cell membrane health, and frequently found to be poorly produced in dry and inflamed skin. Borage oil has been shown to be effective in reducing the inflammation associated with eczema and other inflammatory skin conditions and is also effective at reducing water loss through the skin.
Vanilla oil - extracted from the vanilla pod is rich in antioxidants, helping fight the actions of free radicals in the skin.
Rosemary leaf extract - A powerful antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and skin toning properties.
