GINGER ROOT OIL
is credited for its anti-inflammatory properties and helps to reduce prostaglandins (the compounds associated with pain), to soothe aches
and discomfort. Rich in antioxidant properties, to prevent free radical damage, it protects skin ageing, evens the skin tone and improves elasticity.
is a natural substance found in every fat. During the process of saponifying vegetable oil, soap and glycerin are produced - therefore glycerin is an ingredient of hard soap (in other product formulations vegetable glycerin is an added ingredient). When used in skincare it regulates the absorption and release of water in the skin, and is also softening and smoothing.
is an emulsifer derived from vegetable oils, that prevents the liquid and oily parts of our products from separating. It also acts as an emollient that maintains skin moisture, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.
GLYCERYL OLEATE CITRATE
is a fatty acid derived from vegetable oils. We use it as an emulsifier, to prevent the liquid and oily parts of our products from separating, and as a surfactant (short term for surface active ingredient) that offers a mild cleansing action.
is derived from palm kernel, vegetable or soy oil and is also found naturally in the human body. It acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It easily penetrates the skin and slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. It also helps to protect skin from free-radical damage.
offers powerful anti-oxidant protection against environmental factors. Rich in naturally occurring chemical compounds, it has an anti-ageing effect - soothing, refreshing and moisturising the skin - whilst promoting detoxification, cellular turnover and skin rejuvenation. It also contains omega acids that nourish and firm the skin.
GRAPE SEED OIL
is extracted from the seeds of grapes, very light, quickly absorbed. It is highly moisturizing and acts as an antioxidant against cellular and tissue damage caused by free radicals. It helps to stimulate skin tissues regeneration and can also quicken the healing process of wounds on human skin. Other good benefits of grape seed oil for skin include the abilities to maintain the existence of collagen and elastin.
GRAPEFRUIT PEEL OIL
is high in anti-oxidants, particularly vitamin C, and has natural astringent properties that remove excess oils within the pores and on the surface of the skin. It works to detoxify and condition the skin, to leave it feeling toned and firm. With its antiseptic properties, it also clears congested skin.
GREEN TEA EXTRACT
is renowned for its powerful antioxidant properties that neutralise free radicals, protect the skin at the cellular level and shield from the effects of ageing. Green tea extract also contains methylxanthines, a bioactive compound that promotes circulation at the capillary level, helping nutrients reach the cells more easily to boost skin health and appearance. With anti-inflammatory benefits, it not only reduces inflammation, but also inhibits collagonese – an enzyme that breaks down collagen – therefore supporting and promoting skin suppleness and softness.
