Is a naturally occurring inorganic compound. In skin care products it has been used to combat a variety of skin conditions and is known for its ability to create a barrier. It is non-irritating, non-allergenic and doesn’t block the pores of the skin.
We use zinc in our Baby Bottom balm and Clear Zinc in our lip butters, Sun Protect moisturiser and Day Shift handcreme to provide and SPF15.
Clear Zinc Oxide is made from nanoparticles (particules smaller than 100 nanometers) that have been fused together into larger particles called aggregates. After the particles are fused together, no detectable nanoparticles remain. The result is that you get less whitening properties of nanoparticles with safety and efficacy of larger particles.
Zinc Oxide stays on the top of your skin making it a very effective screen for UVA and UVB rays.
Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii)
Sourced from the nut of the native African tree. Shea nut butter contains high levels of Oleic acid and Stearic acid. It is rich in vitamins in A & E and offers exceptional moisturising and protective properties along with anti-inflammatory benefits.
It penetrates the skin easily and results in a softer, plumper texture. The phenolic compounds found in Shea butter provide anti-aging benefits and the phytosterol, triterpene & cinnamic acid offer natural sun protection. Great for dry and sensitive skin.
Jojoba Oil (ho-ho-bah) is extracted from the bean like seeds of the desert shrub Simondsia. It is a liquid wax used for its moisturising, anti-inflammatory qualities and contains natural collagen, which is almost identical in structure to the collagen in our skin.
Jojoba oil is a hypo allergenic plant oil rich in Vitamin E and a powerful anti-oxidant. The chemical constituents of Jojoba oil are very similar to those of the human sebum making it a great choice in skin care.
Research also indicates that Jojoba oil is beneficial in the treatment of certain skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema.
A great natural moisturiser for all skin types and is known for its ability to not clog the pores.
