Four Ingredients To Look For In Your Skincare

It can be difficult to navigate the array of ingredients you find on skincare products, and know which ones will truly nourish and care for your skin, so here are four ingredients to look for in your skincare. They will give your complexion the most rejuvinating, gentle and effective goodness it needs to glow, and are especially effective for those with oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin.

JOJOBA OIL

Jojoba oil is extracted from the seed of the scientifically known Simmondsia chinensis, indigenous to parts of South America and Mexico. The oil is chemically structured very similarly to human sebum (our own naturally produced oils), so it is thought that use of jojoba oil can intensely moisturise your skin while also helping to balance oil production. It is also non-comedogenic, meaning that it will not clog pores so is perfect if you have acne-prone skin. It contains vitamin goodness such as vitamin E which which is known to help promote healthy and clear skin. We love it so much you can find it in our Fix Me! Repairing Serum, Face Base Face Balm and Take It Away! Gel Cleanser.

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is a real skin saviour, working as an antioxidant to fight free radicals which can cause inflammation.  It can also help in boosting skin’s collagen levels, improving elasticity and reducing discolouration. You can find Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil in our Take It Away! Gel Cleanser, designed to remove everyday impurities without stripping away your skin’s natural oils. Plus the natural orange scent smells divine and is perfect for using morning and evening.

GLYCERIN

Derived from vegetable oils, glycerin works to moisturise the skin by absorbing moisture from the air. It can keep your skin hydrated by keeping the outer layer of your skin intact, therefore protecting your skin from daily pollutants and filling in the microscopic gaps which occur in dry skin. As glycerin is non-toxic and not harsh, it is perfect for sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin. We use it in our Cleanser, Toner and Balm.

LAVENDER OIL

Lavender oil (Lavandula Angustifolia Oil) doesn’t only smell incredibly beautiful and relaxing, it also has a balancing effect on sebum production, making it great for oily skin. It works as an antibacterial, meaning it can inhibit bacteria on the skin and treat acne as well as psoriasis, cuts, scrapes, burns, and sunburns. We use organic Lavender oil in our Balancing Toner, which is designed to return your skin back to its optimal pH level and leave you feeling refreshed.

Other ingredients we love include: Pomegranate Seed Oil (Punica Granatum) which improves skin’s elasticity and eases sensitive skin, found in our Balancing Toner and Face Base Face Balm and Aloe Vera, which acts as a moisturiser and helps towards producing collagen and makes skin smoother. You can find Aloe Vera in all of our products.
