Get to know your A, B, C’s of Skincare: Part 2

For part 2 of our A, B, C's of skincare, we're running through letters M to R, giving you everything you need to know about the ingredients we use as well as skincare knowledge to help you make informed decisions on your journey to your very best skin! 

MACADAMIA NUT OIL 

Rich in oleic acid, Macadamia oil is rich in antioxidants. It also contains Vitamin E, which is also great for the skin and it easily absorbs into the skin making it a great moisturiser. You can find macadamia nut oil in our bestselling Anti-oxidant Marine Cream.

NATURAL  

Using what is available in nature, natural skin care is toxin-free and gentle on the skin. For those that have had a poor experience with products containing chemicals, using natural skincare can help to reduce irritation and calm the skin.

OIL (ESSENTIAL) 

An essential oil is a highly concentrated liquid taken from plants. It is called ‘essential’ because it contains the essence of the plants fragrance. Our signature scent contains four essential oils; lavender, rose geranium, juniper berry and lemongrass. 

PEPTIDES 

Amino acids are found naturally in our bodies, Peptides are chains of amino acids which act like the building blocks of protein. Our skin is made up of protein and the peptides help to stimulate collagen production for example, and so feature heavily in anti-ageing products. 

QUERCETIN 

Known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, this plant pigment can be found in onions, green tea, apples and berries. 

RETINOIDS 

Derived from Vitamin A, they are used in anti-aging and anti-acne skincare products. With acne, the retinoids can help to keep the pores clear and reduce inflammation.
