Tea Tree Oil

Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil
Native to Australia, the tea tree shrub is part of the myrtaceae family which contains approximately 230 plant species. Oil steam distilled from it's leaves has been used for medicinal purposes there for a long time, before gaining popularity worldwide. It is capable of killing many strains of bacteria, viruses and fungi while simultaneously calming inflammation, which makes it ideal for acne prone skin. The composition of tea tree oils sold are regulated by an international standard, which sets minimum and maximum standards, for 14 active components of the oil. It is especially important to choose organically sourced tea tree oil which ensures it’s been tested, meets all criteria and is free from chemical toxins, fillers and solvents.

Ravensara Oil


Agathophyllum Aromatica (Ravensara) Oil
The Agathophyllum aromaticum tree from which ravensara essential oil is made, was introduced to the island of Madagascar in the early 19th century from China. It is sustainably produced from the leaves by steam-distillation which captures the oil in its purest form. In Madagascar, ravensara has been nicknamed “the healing oil.” In fact, many native people have even noticed their allergic reactions to other substances are reduced when they have been exposed to it regularly. Ravensara was also used as a healing medicine by the ancient Egyptians and has been found in Greek, Roman and Middle Age pharmaceutical texts. Other names for it include havozo and hazomanitra. The pure oil can aid with faster wound healing by protecting from infections and facilitating the crowding of leucocytes and platelets in the affected area. It is also a beautifully fragrant oil that has very strong strong anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties in addition to being antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic. Its pleasant aroma is both relaxing and uplifting.

Fractionated Coconut Oil

Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride (Fractionated) Coconut Oil
This is simply coconut oil that has had its long chain fatty acids (mainly lauric acid), removed by gently heating and then removing the solid parts which would otherwise melt at a higher temperature. The result is a light oil that glides on easily, absorbs quickly and is suitable for facial skin as it will not clog pores. The fatty acids it contains such as capric, caprylic, myristic and palmitic along with natural antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E are what make this a highly beneficial skincare ingredient.

Wakame Cell Structure Extract

Undaria Pinnatifida (Wakame Seaweed) Cell Structure Extract 
This is a unique active derived from cultured wakame cells. A kelp, or species of brown sea algae with high levels of vitamins A, C and E, essential amino acids and minerals used for purifying and fortifying the body in many Asian cultures. Clinical studies (available upon request) prove this ingredient can increase cell metabolism and collagen synthesis while decreasing internal (ROS) reactive oxygen species...going way beyond simply using anti-oxidants to limit extrinsic oxidative damage. Due to the concentration and proximity of mitochondrial pollutants to DNA, they are thought to be just as much or more of a threat than external pollutants. The theory backed up by research, suggests these pollutants are formed as a byproduct of oxidative metabolism and cause the damage that leads to aging. These "leaks" occur within the mitochondrial inner membrane, thereby reducing cellular efficiency and leaving cells more susceptible to toxins. This unique extract can help minimize damage at the cellular level where aging starts.
