Let's get natural
A cheat sheet to the high-efficacy, naturally-derived ingredients infused into our formulations:
Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate
Heard the story about how rice wine brewers have ageless, smoothened hands from constant contact with a fermented liquid found in the creation of the beverage? This natural yeast in the form of Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate is a byproduct of fermentation, and has been hailed as a HG ingredient. Why? It’s packed with yeast protein, peptides, amino acids polysaccharides, to infuse skin with vitamins B1 and B2, glutathione, CoQ10, ceramides, and enzymes.
Benefits: Brightening, wrinkle prevention, anti-pigmentation, deep hydration and oil control
Himalayan Red Rice
Red rice is naturally resilient, with a high tolerance for growing in tough climes . What doesn’t kill you, well, could make you more gorgeous. And the ingredient has been made all the more potent through a patented process: Red rice is stressed through exposure to ozone, after which its phytochemical-laden stem cells are extracted. Clinical tests have shown a boost in hydration and skin barrier function, and pore size reduction, in just 60 days.
Benefits: Antioxidant, fights wrinkles, plumps up skin, strengthens skin barrier function, improve hydration
Coconut has long been used in natural skincare. But it might not be as much of a miracle ingredient as it seems. In fact, pure coconut oil is likely to clog pores, which could trigger breakouts. Instead, we use a non-comedogenic, ECOCERT ingredient that is naturally derived from coconut, to cleanse and purify even sensitive skin types. Our micellar water is also free from PEG - an ingredient found in large volume in leading micellar water formulations.
Benefits: Purifying, non-comedogenic cleansing agent that is 100% naturally derived
Traditionally used to heal dry and cracked skin, our Pure African Marula Oil is extracted by the local farmers using simple pressing and filtration techniques. No solvents are used, giving it a high purity for cosmetic applications. Marula Oil has also been found to significantly improve skin hydration and smoothness, showing that it is absorbed well through the skin. And guess what? Marula Oil contains four times the vitamin C found in oranges — an antioxidant crucial for radiance and erasing hyperpigmentation. It is also high in oleic acid, which is essential for locking in rich moisture for healthy, smooth skin.
Benefits: Anti-ageing, antioxidant-rich, moisturising
