See notice for more details.
Passion Fruit Oil (Passiflora eduli):
From the seeds of the tropical fruit, this oil contains flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamins E, F and K and vegetal squalene, helping protect against skin degeneration. It is a fast-absorbing, sebum-regulating, anti-etching, anti-rosacea and calming oil with a high content of linoleic acid that helps retain skin hydration.
Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima):
In its unrefined form, this oil is very rich in unsaponifiables and phytosterols, plant-based sterols which mimic the beneficial effect of cholesterol in human skin, increasing elasticity while reducing wrinkles and transepidermal water loss.
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 has a powerful free radical scavenging ability and is a high potency antioxidant. It is easily absorbed and contains high proportions of oleic acid and linoleic fatty acid, making it ideal for skin rejuvenation.
Shea (Butyrospermum parkii):
The Shea tree grows wild in the equatorial belt of Central Africa, between Gambia and Sudan. This ingredient is famous worldwide for its regenerative, anti-inflammatory and UV absorption abilities. Its effectiveness depends on its percentage of unsaponifiables, including vitamins A. D, E, F, cinnamid acid and kariten, a component in latex.
Ximenia Oil (Ximenia americana):
Also known as African Sour Plum and originating from the Southern Africa Savannahs, 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.
Macadamia (Macadamia ternifolia):
A readily absorbed anti-aging oil thanks to its palmitoleic acid normally found in human sebum, conferring it great affinity with the skin.
Cocoa (Theobroma cacao):
Highly emollient and rich in anti-aging polyphenols, Cocoa butter helps maintain the skin’s collagen levels.
Kpangnan/Painya (Pentadesma butyracea):
It is a tree native to Central and Western Africa, where it grows in the thick pluvial forests on riverbanks, and in swampy zones. Although Kpangnan and Shea butters have common characteristics, Kpangnan butter has a very unique composition with a high percentage of stigmasterol, a component rarely found in nature. Stigmasterol is a base material used in the creation of synthetic progesterone. It has been shown to lower the risk of certain cancers, and is anti-inflammatory.
Baobab (Adansonia digitata):
The Baobab tree grows across Africa in hot, dry lowland areas. It is common for Baobabs to live over 1000 years. Baobab oil is non-siccative and contains a high percentage in beta-sitosterols that have been shown to be a strong antioxidant, and to reduce DNA damage in cells. The oil also contains vitamins A, D3 and E. Vitamin A, which, in combination with the essential fatty acids, helps rejuvenate and renew cell membranes.
Kalahari Melon (Citrullus lanatus):
The Kalahari Melon is sustainably harvested from the wild by women’s cooperatives. Its oil is an excellent source of omega-6 essential fatty acids, giving it strong moisturizing and restructuring skin properties. With nearly 2% unsaponifiables, the oil also has a high sterol content, which helps maintain the skin’s barrier function. Its high antioxidant activity possibly helps the plant to survive in the harsh Kalahari Desert.
Apply every day preferably on the whole body or on targeted zones just after showering on damp skin. This will allow hydration to be retained in the skin while adding a protective layer to it. Repeat during the day.
For external use only.
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.
