With indigenous plants complexes including: Marula, Kpangnan, Kalahari Melon, Baobab, Shea, Ximenia, Passion Fruit and Macadamia.
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, 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.
