• Baobab Fruit: Baobab has the highest antioxidant content of any fruit. Baobab fruit has twice the antioxidants gram per gram of goji berries and more than blueberries and pomegranates combined. Targets discoloration, and helps minimize the look of fine lines while providing protection from free radicals*.
• Clay: refines pores and accelerates healing of acne and blemishes. Removes excess oil and reduces pore size.
• Marula Oil: Contains a high antioxidant count and is rich in many skin-benefiting micro-nutrients and essential fatty acids, especially Omega 9. In addition to its protecting and regenerative effects, Marula oil also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, soothe redness and sensitivity and helps prevent free radical damage. High levels of Omega 9 - Oleic Acid (80%), palmitic and stearic fatty acids are critical for rapid penetration – meaning this oil sinks in quickly to promote intense repair and seal in precious moisture. Marula Oil is rich in Tocopherols, Tocotrienols, Flavonoids, Phenolic compounds and Phytosterols - these antioxidants help protect against free radicals and daily environmental stressors*.
• Aloe Ferox: Wild grown on the rocky slopes in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Cape Aloe has a higher level of the vital polysaccharides and is 20 times more potent than the aloe vera. Cape Aloe stimulates normal lymphocytes and possesses enzymes which stimulate the growth of new cells*.
• Jasmine: Provides a mood-enhancing scent and is a natural astringent with antimicrobial benefits.
• Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate: A stable, water-soluble form of vitamin C that functions as an antioxidant and is potentially effective for brightening an uneven skin tone*.
• African potato: A medicinal plant in the Hypoxidaceae family. It contains a high concentration of plant sterols. Researchers have found that plant sterols greatly enhance the functioning of T-cells, which control and regulate the immune system, and possess potent anti-inflammatory properties similar to cortisone, but without the side-effects. African potato also contains active antimicrobial and antioxidant-rich compounds which help to purify and protect the skin*.
• Star anise: Contains anethole which is extremely effective in detoxifying the skin. It also contains tannins which help tone the skin by strengthening the muscles' firmness, preventing sagging.
• Kigelia: Rich in antioxidants including flavonoids, steroidal saponins, phytosterols and quercetin. These antioxidants protect skin against damage caused by UV radiation and can inhibit some enzyme functions. Kigelia extract has proven skin tightening and firming properties, while reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
