Over the last ten years we have sourced our naturally active ingredients from across the globe. These ingredients have undergone extensive research and development to ensure efficacy as well as skin and texture-enhancing properties.
Acmella Oleracea is a natural plant extract from La Réunion, considered a natural alternative to Botox. It contains splianthol which has a myo-relaxing effect on skin, i.e. it relaxes the muscle contractions that our constant facial expressions cause. This in turn makes the skin appear smoother, less lined and less ‘rough’.
Arctic Cloudberry is a natural fruit that can survive at -40ºC yet still maintains its moisture levels, proving its ability to plump and hydrate skin cells and protect against environmental damage.
Aurealis™ is extracted from Moroccan Bitter Orange Flowers. This sophisticated ingredient boosts the production of Hyaluronic Acid within the epidermis and also encourages the secretion of these newly formed molecules into the extra cellular matrix (the space surrounding our cells that also houses structural support proteins, such as collagen and initiates biochemical messages).
Bearberry Extract A powerful anti-oxidant that helps to boost skin’s collagen production and presents impressive skin-brightening properties.
Bidens Pilosa is an extract that has a natural retinoid-like effect similar to the properties found in Vitamin A. It is proven to increase collagen and elastin production, reduce lines, help address hyper-pigmentation and protect against ageing without causing irritation to the skin’s surface.
Blackberry Leaf Extract is rich in anti-oxidants and helps to boost skin’s collagen production, protecting against premature ageing and environmental damage.
Botanical Squalane Olive-derived and known as ‘nature’s facelift', it’s a botanical lipid that mirrors a human's in molecular structure and weight. This valuable lipid is extremely compatible with the skin and is safe for all skin types. It is a great choice for regenerative skincare and anti-ageing products as it boosts cell regeneration and oxygenation.
DayMoist is a complex of natural plant-derived active ingredients which instantly raise the hydration levels of the upper layers of the skin. A fast-acting plumping effect is achieved, which lasts for at least 24 hours.
Hyaluronic Acid Our super fine grade quickly absorbs into the deeper layers of skin and can hold 1,000 times its own weight in water to help skin instantly hydrate, smooth and plump from within.
Kaolin Clay A gentle clay to detox skin and draw out impurities.
Mica Natural light‑reflecting mineral tint.
Niacinamide Also known as Vitamin B3, it helps to even out skin tone by targeting pigmentation and redness. Niacinamide strengthens the skin's barrier to lock in moisture, and is renowned for its anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Oat Powder Gently exfoliates and known for its calming and soothing properties.
Pea Peptide Peas are a complete source of essential amino acids and naturally rich in protein. Our pea peptide is a world first anti-oxidant peptide. It harnesses the power of amino acids (the building blocks of human cells) to help restore the skin cell’s strength, as well as providing essential anti-oxidant protection to the skin from everyday stresses.
Spilanthes Acmella is a flower extract from South Africa which works to increase the dynamic properties of fibroblasts in the skin, which in turn support the collagen and elastin structure of the skin. By increasing the cellular dynamism it can tighten the protein fibre network and thus minimise the visible signs of ageing, i.e. wrinkles and lines.
Spruce Knot contains high levels of Vitamin E and anti-oxidants and is extracted from the resin of the Norwegian spruce. Renowned for its protective qualities it creates a barrier on the skin and is beneficial to women with hormone imbalances due to its low level of oestrogen content.
Titanium Dioxide This filter physically reflects the sun’s rays to help protect skin from harmful UVA and UVB damage, whereas synthetic sun filters rely on a chemical reaction on the skin’s surface to neutralise harmful rays (which can cause skin irritation and prickly heat). Our sun filter is particularly innovative as it is a 'water suspended in oil' formulation. This allows a better spread of the protection across the skin.
Tri-peptide This chain of amino acids – Glycine, Proline and Hydroxyproline – mimics broken down collagen molecules, tricking your cells in producing more. At the same time it blocks the enzymes that destroy collagen. This dual process make it a truly anti-ageing ingredient.
