NZ Olive Oil - Olea europea - Olive oil contains potent antioxidants and hydrating squalene, it has an antibacterial effect on the skin and is also a natural anti-inflammatory. Our Olive oil is sourced from a boutique single estate grove in Hawke's Bay, dedicated to producing superior quality Extra Virgin boutiquein Olive Oil (EVOO). According to the International Olive Council, olive oil has many vitamins, including A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E. Vitamin E partly accounts for the anti-aging benefits of olive oil because it helps restore skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light. Hydroxytyrosol, a rather rare compound found in olive oil, also prevents free radical damage to the skin.
Coconut Oil - This all natural, edible oil is inarguably the best moisturiser out there, and the only one you’d ever need. Its antioxidant action reduces oxidative damage. It keeps the skin smooth and supple by promoting collagen formation.Coconut oil has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin. The triglycerides in the oil attract protein molecules, ensuring timely repair of the collagen layer.The antibacterial properties of coconut oil protect the skin from potential pathogens. More importantly, it can reduce the risk of bacterial infections and worsening acne. Using coconut oil regularly, for both moisturizing and deep cleansing, can keep the bacterial populations under control.
NZ Beeswax. When applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental assaults. Beeswax contains Vitamin A which improves hydration to the skin and promotes cell regeneration. Beeswax remains biologically “alive” even after it is processed unlike ingredients made from petroleum, however, beeswax does not “suffocate” the skin, and won’t clog pores. The anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory properties of beeswax can actually soothe easily irritated skin, making it one of the best skin care ingredients for those who suffer from allergies or other skin problems like rosacea or eczema.
