With indigenous plants complexes including: Pequi, Kpangnan, Ximenia, Buriti and Shea.
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.
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.
Pequi (Caryocar brasiliense): The Pequi tree is found in Brazil and Paraguay. Pequi is a tasty edible fruit, popular in some areas of Brazil where it is used by the population for food, cosmetics and medicine. Pequi oil possesses a unique combination of essential fatty acids; it is rich in vitamins A and E, and has important bioactive components widely reported as potent antioxidants. It has excellent anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, reparative and anti-microbial properties. It bears a quintessential tropical fruit scent.
Buriti (Mauritia flexuosa): The Buriti Palm grows in Amazonia and is used by indigenous population to treat sunburns as well as animal bites. It is considered the richest natural source of beta-carotene, one of the most powerful antioxidants, which supports cell renewal and is an excellent natural peeling. It is a potent anti-aging agent thanks to its ability to absorb radiation in the visible and ultra-violet light spectrum.
Soy Lecithin: Only certified organic lecithin from non GMO soy is being used. This ingredient brings wonderful benefits to the skin as it is a penetration enhancer, prevents moisture loss and bears a range of antioxydants.
Vegetable Glycerin: Only certified organic vegetable glycerin is being used. This ingredient used in small concentrations has shown a great capacity to regulate skin cells renewal, maintain water balance and improve the suppleness and glow of the skin.
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.
Use Apply a tiny amount directly on lips or on top or your lipstick as often as needed. In cold weather, rub it first between your fingers to gently melt it.
Caution For external use only.
Allergies Contains tree nuts, kernel and unrefined virgin seed oils as well as soy lecithin. 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.
