Ingredients

I have set out to create a beautiful, effective skincare range. I wanted to create products that were 100% natural, versatile, highly effective, but yet gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. I have removed all essential oils and known irritants. What you will find is the best oils, extracts, and herbs. The products have the natural aromas of the ingredients with nothing added.

Rose Hydrosol: 

Rose is one of the oldest and most loved ingredients.  The hydrosol is made through a process of steam distillation of the flowers.  Rose is very soothing and revitalizing.

 

Frankincense Water:  

Frankincense has the ability to strengthen skin and improve its tone, elasticity, and defense mechanisms against bacteria or blemishes, as well as to protect skin’s appearance as it matures. It may help tone and lift skin, reduce the severity of scars and acne, and heal wounds.  The water used in the Multi-fruit Elixir is recaptured from the oil extraction process used in the Sunrise Antioxidant Serum.

 

Prickly Pear Extract: 

This extract derived from the Oputina species of cactus that can detoxify, moisturize and protect the skin. Prickly pear is a desert plant that is unique in the fact that it can provide protection, moisture retention and detoxifying effects to the skin while also being rich in much needed vitamins and minerals.  Prickly pear is rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and potassium while also containing tannins, flavonoids, betanins and alkaloids. The high tannin content of prickly pear can act as a natural astringent, which is great for tightening, thus minimizing the appearance of the pores.

 

Crypthecodinium Cohnii Extract: 

Crypthecodinium cohnii is a species of dinoflagellate microalgae.  This extract is a revolutionary ingredient that activates the specific oxidant and toxin cleansing power of glutathione in the skin to slow down the rate of the aging process from within the cell.  It revitalizes the skin and provides protection against cellular and external environmental pollution.

 

Multiple Fruit Extracts: 

A unique blend of Pomegranate, Starfruit, Passionfruit, Kiwi, Mangosteen, Pineapple, Lychee, Indian Jujube and Guava extracts. During the extraction process, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and proteases are naturally isolated from the fruits. These components are capable of gently, yet effectively exfoliating the skin to deliver instant softening properties. AHAs are understood to loosen dead cell attachments and reduce cell cohesion at the lower level of the skin to promote cellular renewal. As new skin cells generate, older cells slough off to reveal a smoother looking skin. Factors such as sun damage, age and environmental stress cause this process to slow which results in the accumulation of dead skin cells. The use of AHAs can combat this problem by breaking bonds to increase cellular renewal.
