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, which has been shown to improve blood flow in the skin. Due to the exceptionally long fatty acid composition of the oil, it is known for its anti-aging effects and has amazing nourishing and moisturizing properties, reducing inflammation and redness, and improving skin elasticity.
Andiroba (Carapa guianensis): From the heart of the Amazon, Andiroba oil is processed from the Carapa guianensis tree and is highly valued for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is an important resource for local communities, when exploited sustainably.
Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens): Cypress, a coniferous tree, has been revered through ages and by many civilizations from Hippocrates, to Ayurveda and Chinese Traditional Medicine. Its oil is astringent, anti-spasmodic, diuretic and therefore plays a role in favoring capillary vasoconstriction and reducing fluid retention.
Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens): An evergreen shrub, commonly found in America, it contains Methyl Salicylate, a natural form of Aspirin. The substance diffuses topically into the tissues and in the capillaries. It is used as a folk remedy for inflammation and poor circulation, although the concentration in this product has been kept at cosmetic level. Asthmatic people may be sensitive to Wintergreen, which is also common as a fragrance in products such as toothpaste and chewing gum.
Ahibero (Cymbopogon giganteus): This specie of Lemongrass, growing in tropical savannah and notably found in Madagascar, has a unique and distinct chemical profile to the commonly known Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) and does not bear its usual lemon scent. Its specific constituents have been studied for their potential use as an anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and fungicidal agent.
Mastic (Pistacia lentiscus): This relative of the Pistachio produces a beautiful resin that has been used as a mastic gum by Mediterranean civilizations to reduce stomach acid, freshen breath, and l to fight colds and flu. Its oil is mainly used to help relieve varicose vein pain and as a lymphatic decongestant thanks to its vasoconstrictive properties.
Tamanu (Calophyllum inophylum): Also known as Foraha, this oil is indigenous to tropical Southeast Asia and also found in Madagascar. Thorough research has shown the oil has a great ability to heal damaged skin, small wounds, cracks, blisters.
Cape Mahogany (Trichilia emetica): the source of Mafura Butter, it is a beautiful, slow-growing evergreen tree found across Southern Africa.
