Polawax NF - is a general purpose emulsifying wax composed of vegetable-derived emulsifiers and stabilisers.
Cetyl Alcohol NF - Cetyl alcohol is made by heating coconut oil with a strong base (for example lye - sodium hydroxide). This process is the same process used to make soap (saponification)
Acid - a naturally-ocurring saturated fatty acid that is
in many natural oils like palm, coconut, and butters.
Organic Hempseed Oil - is made up of 80% essential fatty acid, the highest amount of any other plant. It prevents moisture loss on a physiological level; it does not just merely "coat" the skin as do other oils. It contains the ideal ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 based on our cells needs. Hemp Seed Oil so closely matches our own skin's lipids that it's able to penetrate inside our cells and lubricate the surface between them, allowing the EFA's to enter our body. For this reason EFA's have been proven to provide a healthy moisture balance and play a preventative role in skin aging.
Murumuru Butter - Oleic acid (also known as vitamin K) is an omega-9 essential fatty acid that has been shown to be an excellent emollient, which moisturises and softens the skin while aiding moisture retention. It also permeates the skin deeply, enhancing the effects of collagen and elastin, repairing damage caused by dryness, sun exposure, stress and other factors. It helps to restore skin elasticity, skin texture and can reduce and even eliminate fine lines. The unique composition of essential fatty acids and Pro-Vitamin A help restore elasticity to damaged and aging skin and makes a highly suitable ingredient for use in anti-aging formulations.
Argan Oil - This Morrocan oil is lauded
for being naturally rich in
antioxidants, essential fatty acids, carotenoids, ferulic acid,
sterols, polyphenols, vitamin E and squalene. Together, these elements
help to heal skin, reduce inflammation and fend off free radicals.
Argan is considered an effective anti-aging oil due to properties such
as the high levels of vitamin E /tocopherols (anti-oxidants help
neutralise free radical damage, which is important for skin exposed to
polluted Western environments) and saponins (skin-softening agents).
Besides cooling and soothing inflammation, it is also reputed to help
reduce wrinkles by restoring the skin`s hydro-lipid layer.
Aloe Vera Juice - contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Giberellin in aloe vera acts as a growth hormone stimulating the growth of new cells. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring. As we age, everyone begins to worry about the appearance of fine lines and the loss of elasticity in their skin. Aloe leaves contain a plethora of antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E that can help improve the skin's natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated.
Silk Amino Acids - are a non-animal protein source. Some study’s have shown that SAAs have antioxidant effects and have been shown to combat wrinkles. Is a naturally hydroscopic material. (Adj. of a substance; tending to absorb moisture from the air.) it provides excellent moisturizing and conditioning qualities. SAAs can give the skin a very soft, smooth velvety feel when used in things like lotions and hand creams.
Hydroxy Acid - Alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids
hydroxy acids are exfoliants — substances that remove the upper layer
of old, dead skin and stimulate the growth of smooth, evenly pigmented
new skin. Alpha Hydroxy Acids, or “AHA’s”, these naturally occurring
acids from plants and fruits like oranges, They reduce fine lines and
wrinkles, renew skin cells more rapidly, lighten age spots and even
skin tone' They reduce acne by cleaning pores and exfoliating the skin
and increase collagen production for firmer, younger looking Skin
Geogard - ECT Preservative is a unique
combination of 4 components
E - Vitamin E is a
strong antioxidant that prevents premature
aging. Wrinkles come from age, free radical damage, improper skin care
and poor habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol in excess. Vitamin
E oil prevents the formation of wrinkles by blocking free radical
damage. It treats wrinkles by boosting collagen production, a
connective tissue that keeps skin elastic. Vitamin E oil also treats
wrinkles by supporting new skin cell growth and speeding up cell
