We know what a difference good quality ingredients make in our food, but what about our skincare?
By sourcing our ingredients in Australia from trusted providers, we're ensuring our products are of the highest quality.
Alone, each ingredient can only do so much for the skin which is why we've combined our three power ingredients (along with a few extra, performance boosting essentials) in a silky, absorbent multi-tasking gel.
Aloe vera has been used in skincare products for many years, with its benefits being widely recognised.
While there are two distinct parts to the aloe vera plant itself, most skincare products utilise the inner leaf gel for its moisturising and anti-inflammatory properties.
The inner leaf gel is also structured in a way where it forms a protective film on the skin to encourage healing, making this ingredient a serious multi-tasker.
Hyaluronic acid comes in many shapes and forms. Besides the type that naturally exists in the body, there are two versions commonly used in skin care products - hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate.
We are big fans of sodium hyaluronate as it has a lower molecular weight than hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid. This means that it penetrates more deeply into the skin to rehydrate and promote water retention, preventing lines and damage.
Any type of hyaluronic acid becomes more effective when applied with moisuture - whether that be to damp skin, in humid environments or alongside other moisture-rich ingredients (see: vitamin B5).
Vitamin B5 functions in several different ways - both as a humectant, attracting water to and holding it in the skin, as well as an emollient, smoothing and softening the skin.
It is a powerhouse ingredient that increases the turnover of cells that are important for wound healing, while restoring optimal skin barrier function.
Vitamin B5 also has anti-inflammatory properties, with studies showing positive results after using it on UV-induced redness.
