Licorice root extract – Used by Ayurvedic practitioners for many years, this botanical brightener naturally helps to inhibit the formation of melanin, effectively minimizing hyperpigmentation while brightening dull and uneven skin tone.
Ascorbic acid 2-glucoside (AA2G™) – This unique form of vitamin C is shown to help promote the synthesis of collagen by human skin fibroblasts, thereby increasing the suppleness of the skin.
Babassu butter – This rich, luxurious moisturizer is harvested from the seeds of the babassu palm. Similar to coconut oil, this fat-soluble butter melts at body temperature and absorbs into the skin quickly, penetrating deep beneath the skin’s surface.
Clerilys W – Formulated with cucumber seeds, white mulberry bark and hibiscus flowers, this whitening ingredient may help to minimize pigmentation three-fold by inhibiting the synthesis of melanin, the storage of the pigment and enhancing cell turnover.
Axolight – Clinically proven to inhibit melanogenesis, it supports luminosity of the skin by helping to reduce melanin quantity and preventing UV-induced coloration.
BioVera Oil – Containing soothing Aloe Vera extract, this natural ingredient helps to hydrate the skin after exposure to sun or other harsh elements.
Jojoba oil – Extracted from the beans of the dessert shrub Simmondsia chinensis, this golden oil has a similar composition to human skin oil and can help to balance oil production.
Grape seed oil – This power-packed antioxidant locks in moisture while helping to improve skin health. It is rich in natural vitamin D and has been shown to support damaged skin, making it especially suitable for our Day Cream with Natural Whitening.
Introducing the Kanapa™ Blend
Our unique Kanapa™ blend is designed to support the skin's natural ability to repair itself, and help you maintain skin with a youthful glow while helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Kanapa™ is rich in replenishing oils, including omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9, to replenish, strengthen and protect the skin.
Moringa Oil – Moringa oil is an extremely light and easily absorbed oil used for health and beauty for centuries, with the moringa tree also called the ‘Miracle Tree’ and ‘Tree of Life’. Moringa oil is obtained by pressing the seeds of the Moringa oilefera tree to produce a clear, odourless oil packed full of antioxidants to support healing and collagen.
Copherol - This natural form of vitamin E is a valuable antioxidant that supports the skin and helps resist the breakdown of collagen and elastin, the two proteins that keep our skin taut, supple and resist the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Phytaminol – The second in our trio of power-packed antioxidants supports the skin’s ability to maintain healthy cells while helping to support circulation, preserving moisture and supporting healthy inflammation management in the skin.
Astaxanthin – This natural antioxidant is derived from algae and is naturally pink in colour. It helps to manage oxidative damage and combined with copherol and phytaminol, it helps to manage free radicals to resist the signs of premature aging.
Harakeke Oil – Harakeke is the Maori name for a common New Zealand flax and is one of nature’s super skin hydrators. It is high in linoleic acid (approximately 70%), which forms part of the natural composition of the skin barrier. Adding extra linoleic acid supports the skin’s hydration level. It also includes valuable oleic acid and phytosterols which help to maintain healthy turnover of skin cells.
BioVera™ Oil – This unique plant extract is from the multi-purpose aloe vera plant and is used to assist in hydrating after exposure to sun and other harsh elements. It is also a skin conditioning agent that also supports skin health and relieves skin irritation.
Mamaku Gel – Mamaku is a Native New Zealand tree fern which produces a unique healing extract used by Maori for centuries to soothe and bring new life to skin cells. It is also used for hydrating the skin to promote health and rejuvenation, leaving skin feeling smoother, softer and more radiant.
Lipolami™ Milk Thistle – Formulated in France, Lipolami™ is a soft-touch oil obtained from milk thistle offering light-weight hydration from nature. It is high in ethyl esters (approximately 90%) of natural fatty acids and is easily spreadable, leaving skin soft and silky to touch.
