Passion Fruit Oil (Passiflora Eduli): From the seeds of the tropical fruit, this oil contains flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamins E, F and K and vegetable squalene.
Avocado Oil (Persea Gratissima ): In its unrefined form, this oil is very rich in unsaponifiables and phytosterols.
Marula (Sclerocarya birrea): The Marula tree is related to the mango; it is drought resistant and most commonly found at low altitudes in open woodlands in Southern Africa. Marula oil is a high potency antioxidant, is easily absorbed and contains high proportions of oleic acid and linoleic fatty acid.
Mongongo / Manketti (Schinziophyton rautanenii): The Mongongo tree grows in dry areas of Sub-Saharan Africa and fares particularly well in the deep sands of the Kalahari. Its oil has a unique composition very high in eleostearic acid.
Papaya Oil (Carica Papaya): Besides a range of Vitamins and minerals as well as Omega 6 and essential fatty acids, it contains a unique enzyme called papain.
Pomegranate Oil (Punica Granatum): With polyunsaturated and antioxidant punicic and ellagic acids, tocopherols and phytoestrogen.
Yangu Oil (Calodendrum Capense): Also called Cape Chestnut, this plant, originating from the Southern African region, it is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants.
Shea (Butyrospermum parkii): The Shea tree grows wild in the equatorial belt of Central Africa, between Gambia and Sudan. This ingredient effectiveness depends on its percentage of unsaponifiables, including vitamins A. D, E, F, cinnamid acid and kariten, a component in latex, which are best preserved when unrefined.
Ximenia Oil (Ximenia Americana): Also known as African Sour Plum and originating from the Southern Africa Savannah, this oil has a unique honey-like consistency. Ximenia oil contains Ximenynic acid, and an exceptionally long fatty acid composition.
Use Keep it close to reach for a dry application as often as needed. For a wet application, mix with a drop of water or better leave the balm next to your soap and incorporate in your hand & feet hygiene routine. On soap washed wet to damp hands & feet, spread a tiny amount in washing hand motions and leave to air dry or towel dry.
Caution For external use only.
Allergies Contains tree nuts, kernel and unrefined virgin seed oils. May have been in contact with bee and dairy products. Shea butter contains kariten, a component of latex. People allergic to latex should test first or seek medical advice. To limit the occurrence of allergies, it is recommendable to reduce sources of allergens at home (ambient perfumes, deodorizers, scented candles, harsh detergents, humidity and molds, smoke, etc) and test for food or contact allergies.
No waxes, keep cool to avoid melting! Store in a dark, dry and cool place. Use before expiration date (24 months).This is a natural product subject to small variations in color, scent and texture.
Almost all NadiaZ solid products are made without waxes to improve their penetrability. They can therefore melt if not stored in cool temperatures. Melting does not affect product quality in anyway; neither does the apparition of grains. Shea and other butters tend to develop a grainy consistency when cooling. This is easily corrected by melting the products at low temperature (30°C) and solidifying them again rapidly in cold temperature, in a fridge for example. Because the temperature of the butter is cooler in the areas in contact with the glass recipient than in the center, most NadiaZ solid products will present a small sinking of the butter in the middle, which does not by any way imply any flaw from surface or physical contact.
Recycle glass and paper.
NadiaZ uses Miron Glass, a precious and elegant violet glass, which can be traced back to the Ancient Egyptians who used it to store their medicinal products. It ensures the utmost preservation of fragile plant ingredients, thus reducing the need for any preservatives.
Miron glass is eco-friendly as it is 100% recyclable. You can discard it with your local glass collector or send it back to NadiaZ or your local representative.
This is what Miron Glass does: Sunlight enables all plants to grow. If they continue to be exposed to the sun after reaching maturity, the effect of the light changes and accelerates the molecular decaying process. Miron violet glass works like a natural filter that only lets the sunlight that protects and improves the quality of premium and sensitive substances. Miron Violet glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of the violet part. At the same time it allows a certain part to be permeable for radiation in the spectral range of UV-A, and infra-red light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency of products.
