|| Purified water
|Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil
||High in the types of fatty acids needed for troubled skin.
|Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil
||Wonderfully healthy for the skin. So many benefits, it might be best to Google "Olive Oil Skin" instead.
|Cetostearyl Alcohol (also called Cetearyl Alcohol)
||Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.
||One of our favourite moisturising oils. It helps leave your skin moisturised and dewy. It is good for all skin types, including acne prone skin.
Our body produces a small amount of squalene, but the amount diminishes when we get older, starting in our twenties. Squalene is required for our skin to keep it moisturised and fight aging. It is also a unique antioxidant from olives that protects our skin from free-radical damages.
Since Olive squalene's composition is very similar to human sebum, it can penetrate our skin very quickly to help our skin to fight dryness. It enhances skin elasticity and moisture retention.
|Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera)
||Most people already know the healing and soothing benefits of Aloe Vera. We loved it before we made skin care, and we love it in our creams.
|Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract
||Matricaria chamomilla extract contains active Flavonoid and Essential Oil compounds, which are particularly advantageous in the care of sensitive skin. Anti-inflammatory properties due to the inhibition of histamine release anti-free radical action and inhibition of the super oxide radical synthesis.
|Centella Asiatica Extract
||Centella asiatica promotes healing
|Sage Oil Dalmatian
||Sage Oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Like a lot of essential oils, some practitioners do not recommended using pure Sage Oil in Aromatherapy when pregnant. For our eczema balm, we use a small amount and it is applied to the skin rather than inhaled or digested in tea. However, when pregnant we suggest doing your own research as peace of mind is the most important thing.
||Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient. Non-irritating, it also helps keep the cream free from spoilage.
|Polysorbate 60 (Food Grade Emulsifier)
||A lot of our customers are small. So small in fact that they have sometimes mistaken the creams their mums or dad’s put on the nappy change table for food. So we always choose the most edible ingredients we can. Polysorbates are used in a lot of foods like Mayonnaise, Ice-cream etc to hold the cream and water together. We use them to help with the same thing.
||Comfrey has long been associated with soft, healthy skin. Allantoin is one of the skin conditioners that have been purified from comfrey. Allantoin is thought to help maintain healthy skin by encouraging the removal of dead skin cells.
|Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E)
||We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic. Vitamin E has antioxidant actions as well as free radical scavenger properties. This helps to keep the oils in our cream and on your skin, fresh and stable.
|Xanthan Gum (Food Grade Thickener)
||Xanthan Gum is used in a lot of foods and we use it to help keep our creams stable using food based ingredients.
|Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract
||Cosmetic creams need to stay pure from bacteria,yeasts and mould. That is why ingredients like Parabens etc are used by a lot of companies. These work great at achieving their aim, but a lot of our sustomers prefer not to use these products as we aim to make our products natural and edible. We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hop Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural and edible anti-bacterial system into our creams.
