Vitamin C

Textrahexyl Ascorbate

The type of Vitamin C you use is key. We use Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate because it easily penetrates the skin due to its fatty acid constituent. Its oil solubility delivers Vitamin C gently yet effectively into both the epidermis (upper layer) and dermis (deepest layer). It converts into L-Ascorbic Acid within the skin, allowing a recorded 50x stronger efficacy over other versions at the same percentage. Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate suits even sensitive skin, and is extremely shelf stable – so there’s no need to use the product within three months, or worry that the Vitamin C is now inactive.

Pomegranate Seed

Cold pressed Pomegranate Seed oil is extremely high in antioxidants, Vitamin B, C and E and punicic, linoleic, oleic and palmitic essential fatty acids. At 78%, the extremely high level of punicic acid has been called a superfood CLA, conjugated linoleic acid, a type of omega 6 fatty acid. Pomegranate Seed oil is wonderful for dry, red and inflamed skin, as it soothes and treats the lipid barrier, particularly suitable for sensitive skins. Its Vitamin C component fades dark spots and hyperpigmentation while fighting the signs of free radical damage like wrinkles and crepiness. Pomegranate Seed oil powerfully boosts collagen production and ceramide creation encouraging strengthening and elasticity in the epidermis.

Salix Alba

Willow Bark Extract

Willow Bark is the source of our salicylic acid – an oil-soluble beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that penetrates the skin’s epidermis (upper layers). Salicylic acid works on a deeper layers of the skin to treat acne, whiteheads and blackheads by unclogging dead skin cells. It’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, which soothes and minimises irritated skin, acne lesions and red, inflamed pustular skin. By dismantling the ‘glue’ that holds skin cells together, it deeply exfoliates, gently diminishing problematic skin and reducing pore size. It can also reduce the visible signs aging by increasing collagen and elastin fibre levels.

Psoralea Corylifoli

Bakuchiol

Known as nature’s retinol, this plant-derived compound has become a very popular skincare ingredient recently. Bakuchiol is found in the seeds of the Babchi plant (Psoralea Corylifolia) native to East Asia. While it has the same beneficial effects of retinol, Bakuchiol is far gentler, without the side effects of irritation, redness and dryness. Bakuchiol boosts the skin’s production of collagen and works on signs of ageing, such as lines, wrinkles, dark spots and pigmentation.

It can smooth skin texture while restoring elasticity and helping skin to ‘glow’. Long used traditionally in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, bakuchiol is well tolerated on sensitive skin, anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants. The calming and alleviating properties of bakuchiol allow retinol to stabilise and its effects to amplify.

Centella Asiatica

Gotu kola

Known in the Brahmi language as ‘greatest of the great’ – Gotu Kola has roots in traditional Chinese, Indonesian and Ayurveda medicine for healing wounds and wellbeing. Packed with Vitamins B, C, flavonoids, fatty acids, tannins and polyphenols, Gotu kola has a unique ability to penetrate deeply into the dermis, transporting strengthening and repairing nutrients to the cells. Gotu Kola contains terpenoids – chemical compounds that encourage collagen synthesis, speed up skin’s healing processes and support cell building, making skin tighter and
firmer.

Uniquely, the plant improves blood circulation which increases antioxidant levels in newly formed tissues. This combination of deep penetration and circulation, can dramatically reduce scarring, stretch marks and varicose veins, while also helping to shrink the fat cells that bind together to create cellulite. The plant extract is also deeply hydrating, keeping water levels high in the epidermis and dermis, which protects the skin’s barrier.

Undaria Pinnatifida

Bioactive Wakame Seaweed

Our New Zealand native brown Wakame Seaweed is naturally extracted, traceable and sustainably harvested in the pristine Marlborough Sounds. Marine plants have evolved to withstand complex ecological stresses, including temperature extremes, changes in pressure and pH levels, UV exposure and dehydration. They respond by producing protective structural and bioactive compounds, including polysaccharides (alguronic acid and fucoidan), carotenoids (fucoxanthin) and phenolics.


Carotenoids like Fucoxanthin are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory pigments that protect the cells of seaweed against sun damage. The bioactive components we use are maximised during non-chemical/solvent extraction, and tested to be free from pesticides and GMOs.

The way these bioactive compounds and micronutrients are captured creates a unique ingredient proven to protect skin cells and decrease wrinkle depth. Packed full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and polysaccharides, Wakame Seaweed is celebrated to detoxify, moisturise, soothe and rejuvenate the skin by deeply penetrating the epidermis, forming a moisturising barrier and delivering its anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing properties.
