Coconut Oil - Rich in lauric acid, caprylic acid, capric acid, proteins and vitamin E. Lauric acid is highly prized for its anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties while caprylic acid is a natural anti-fungal agent. These fatty acids create a micro-thin barrier, locking in moisture for longer, while naturally occuring proteins and Vitamin E aid in boosting skin renewal and regeneration.
Vitamin E - An antioxidant superhero, Vitamin E is skin’s number one friend, smoothing scars and protecting skin from damaging free radicals. Enhances the protective function of skin and decreases the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scars by keeping cells hydrated. Vitamin E is the most widely used active ingredient in Personal Care. Its central role is that of a strong antioxidant, capturing free oxygen radicals generated by exposure to UV-light or pollution and preventing further damage. Generally the addition of vitamin antioxidants (E and C) improves the photoprotection provided by formulations as a second line of defense against UV induced premature aging.
Tahitian Monoi Oil - Made from soaking the petals of the Tiare flower in locally sourced Coconut Oil and extracting the fragrance. Dubbed the ‘Sacred Oil’ by Polynesian cultures, Monoi Oil has been used for centuries by islanders to keep hair and skin moisturised and protected from environmental elements.
Shea Butter - Sourced from the Karite tree, originating in the African Savannah. African cultures have used Shea Butter for thousands of years as a natural cure and to protect the skin & hair from sun, wind, heat and saltwater.
