As an effort to keep our production as transparent as possible, get to know our key ingredients below.
Marula Oil (Sclerocarya Birrea):
Our virgin, non-GMO marula oil comes from Namibia and is a treasured, luxurious oil that absorbs quickly into the skin. It is rich in antioxidants, lightweight, hydrating and promotes elasticity.
Sunflower Oil (Helianthus Annuus):
Our organic sunflower oil comes from France and it is light but powerful. It is rich in oleic acids and vitamins A, D, and E. It absorbs quickly on the skin and is nourishing.
Argan Oil (Argania Spinosa):
Originating in Morocco, our argan oil is rich in skin-loving nutrients. It's easily absorbed into the skin, feels light and feels luxurious when applied.
Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis ):
Sourced from the USA, Jojoba oil is chemically very similar to the natural oils produced by our skin. It is non-toxic, non-comedogenic, non-allergenic and does not feel greasy when applied. Because of it's nature of being more of a liquid wax than a true oil, Jojoba oil may become cloudy and solidify as temperature drops. This is normal and is the reason why our oils should be kept at room temperature.
Camelia Oil (Camellia Oleifera):
Our camelia oil comes from Denmark and is a highly nourishing and hydrating oil. It feels light on the skin, aids in giving a bright complexion and is a great moisturizer. It can also be used on dry skin and hair as it helps restore moisture.
Apricot Oil(Prunus Armeniaca):
Originating in Turkey, our apricot oil is one we absolutely love because it's a gentle oil that is suitable for sensitive skin and is easily absorbed. It's moisturizing properties make it an exquisite ingredient to add to our formulations.
