Vegetable Glycerin is a non-toxic colorless and odorless liquid produced from vegetables. It has emollient and lubricating properties and helps to moisturize the skin. Glycerin has anti microbial effects, helps to heal wounds and also restore skins elasticity.
Guar Gum is an all natural nontoxic emulsifier that binds to liquids. It is made from the guar gum plant, Cyamopsis tetragonolobus, also known as cluster bean and Siam bean, which is grown in the arid areas of India. It is used not only in all natural safe cosmetics but also in the food industry for Gluten-Free foods.
Ethyl Macadamiate is derived from macadamia seed oil. It is an exceptionally mild skin conditioner with unique penetrating and spreading ability. It is natural alternative to silicone where a botanical, nonvolatile and/or lipid-soluble substance is preferred. Macadamia is excellent oil that protects and heals skin blemishes such as scars, sunburn, minor wounds and other irritations. Because of its high absorption rate it has great moisturizing properties.
Squalane (Olives) is derived from Squalene but is much more stable, both come from olive oil. Squalane moisturizes your skin and is absorbed quickly. Your skin will feel supple, look plumper and wrinkles will be less apparent. Of course just like Olive Oil it is completely safe for pregnant and nursing moms.
Rosa Rubiginosa (Rose Hip) Seed Oil helps to assist the skin with hydration. It improves tone and texture and replenishes moisture. Rose Hip Oil also helps with wrinkles, sun-damage, spots, scars and acne. It is suitable for babies and those with sensitive skin. This oil is safe for pregnant and nursing women.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract acts as a natural barrier and shields skin from dangerous toxins. It heals skin by helping to destroy bacteria that try to invade cuts and wounds. It also proves helpful in removing dead skin cells. Aloe moisturizes the skin and helps to provide oxygen to the skin cells which in turn increases the strength and synthesis of skin tissue. It is considered safe for pregnancy and nursing when used topically.
Aspalathus Linearis (Red Tea) Extract has many skin care benefits and is used for a variety of skin problems such as eczema, diaper rash, acne and anti-aging. It is a natural antioxidant; it has antimicrobial properties and is also an anti-inflammatory. Red Tea has shown to relieve colic in newborns. It is used frequently in holistic medicine and is commonly recommended to women to help increase iron levels while pregnant.
Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Extract is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals, protects against photo-aging and photo-damage cause by ultra violet rays. It also helps to bring down inflammation that sun damage has caused. Studies have found that green tea was able to rejuvenate old skin cells that were at the end of their life cycle. Many world renowned dermatologists recommend the use of topical green tea during pregnancy.
Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the body and its benefits are well known as an effective anti-aging skin care treatment. One key factor is hyaluronic acids ability to retain water which contributes to the skins youthful appearance. As you age the levels of hyaluronic acid decreases and thus adversely impacts the skin’s ability to retain moisture which leads to wrinkles.
Triple blend of Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate and Ascorbyl Glucoside)
Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is another form of Vitamin C that is considered stable and gentle. It is absorbed into the skin first then is converted to Ascorbic Acid. Due to this fact it is thought to be good at treating acne because it is not an irritant when applied, like Ascorbic Acid can be. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate can stimulate collagen and is also a highly effective skin brightener.
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a great skin lightener and brightener. It is also effective for UV protection and repair. It is a potent antioxidant that is non-irritating and is also an anti-inflammatory.
Ascorbyl Glucosideis a new type of stable vitamin C that is not easily oxidized. This form of Vitamin C shares the same physiological activation as L-Ascorbic Acid, but because it is less degradable it has a sustained action on improving skin brightening and discoloration. It will also stimulate collagen production to help prevent aging.
The blend of these three types of Vitamin C’s make a dynamic combination of superior antioxidants without irritation. This trio represents a soothing anti-inflammatory formulation that is excellent at boosting collagen production, reducing hyperpigmentation and helps with overall anti-aging.
Tricholoma Matsutake Singer Extract (Japanese Mushroom) has effective brightening qualities and effectively helps to fade away dark, pigmented spots. There have been many studies to show outstanding digestive benefits of this mushroom and now many studies to show very promising skin brightening properties. This mushroom is also a free radical scavenger. Mushrooms are a great source of vitamin B and Zinc which is essential for pregnant and nursing moms.
Glucose, or commonly called sugar, is an important energy source that is needed by all the cells and organs of our bodies. Combined with the following two ingredients (Lactoperoxidase and Glucose Oxidase) make a safe, effective and natural anti-microbial, antioxidant that gives our product “preservative free” protection.
Lactoperoxidase is an enzyme that is known to have antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. According to research published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology, it has antibacterial properties that are helpful for the skin and can eliminate acne-causing bacteria.
Glucose Oxidase is a natural enzyme derived from honey. Honey contains many anti-aging benefits to the skin as well as anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil has been proven to be effective at reducing scarring and help repair damaged skin; as well as preventing acne by dissolving fatty deposits in clogged pores. Almond oil contains many fatty acids which are beneficial for reducing acne flare-ups. It can be used to reduce the effects of ultraviolet rays and to give skin a healthy glow. Almonds contain folic acid and are great snacks for pregnant and nursing moms.
Citrus Sinensis (Sweet Orange) Oil replenishes dry and sun damaged skin. It has traditional medicinal uses for coughs, colds and digestive conditions. It is a natural scent in our product.
