Okay, so we don't use ONLY green ingredients. But our non-toxic formulations are inspired by the cleanliness of green and the bounty of ingredients offered by Mother Nature. Here, we outline the incredible benefits of some of our key ingredients (of all colours!).
Citrus Limetta (Cold Pressed Lime) essential oil
Lime essential oil has antiseptic properties, which can help to fight and protect against infections and work as a disinfectant. This essential oil also helps to prevent signs of aging by toning the muscles, tissues, and skin, as well as preventing the ageing symptoms such as wrinkles, age spots and muscle weakness.
Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Peel (Orange) essential oil
Orange essential oil is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory which makes it an ideal ingredient for your skin and hair routine. This oil isn't just for acne-prone skin though: It's been shown to increase the ability to absorb vitamin C, collagen production, and blood flow, all of which are essential for anti-aging.
In addition to having a gorgeous aroma known to help calm nerves and reduce stress, Clove offers real benefits to the skin as well. Filled with antibacterial and antiseptic properties, Clove is useful for fighting bacteria and swelling in the skin, as well as helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Rose petals are the ultimate in a luxury bath experience thanks to their beautiful fragrance and aromatherapy qualities, including stress and tension relief and relaxing the mind. They can also help remove excess oils from skin, leaving your skin fresh, regenerated and clean.
Cinnamon is one of the most popular spices in flavouring and medicinal uses. The main components of cinnamon bark are tannins and essential oil which mainly contains cinnamaldehyde. The health benefits of the cinnamon stem from its antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, astringent, and anti-clotting properties. The spice is rich in essential minerals such as manganese, iron, and calcium, while also having a high content of fibre.
Cuminum Cyminum (Cumin) seed essential oil
Cumin seed essential oil is known for its warm and nutty smell. The oil has benefits of hydrating, soothing and smoothing the skin when used topically, as well as helping to minimise blemishes and promote the skins overall complexion.
Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice
Aloe Vera is often used to treat skin lesions because of its emollient and soothing actions, which are mainly due to its mucilage content. Mucilages are hygroscopic – they absorb and retain water under certain conditions – a property that makes them useful moisturising agents. Aloe vera provides wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation.
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) oil
Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins that actively fight the free radicals that cause damage. It contains 90% saturated triglycerides, which are fatty acids hydrogenated form. The oil also contains essential simple esters, inorganic and sulfated salts, and fatty alcohols.
It’s packed with rich fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants which help fight damage-causing free-radicals. Also, coconut oil molecules are quite small which helps with the absorption of amazing conditioning and moisturising benefits.
Prunis Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond) oil
Almond oil helps to keep your skin cells healthy, protects your skin from UV radiation damage, and helps your skin to look smooth, soft and line-free. The fatty acids help your skin to retain moisture and can help to help chapped and irritated skin. May also assist with minimising acne.
Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) leaf extract
Green Tea Extract is derived from the leaves of Camellia sinensis. It contains anti-oxidant ingredients, mainly green tea catechins.
