Careful consideration goes into picking natural organic ingredients for formulations. We draw inspiration from the countryside and gardens around us in Yorkshire. Here are just some of our 'hero' oils and extracts that deserve to be shown off.
Lunaria Annua Seed Oil
Lunaria comes from the Honesty plant and is grown in the UK. Its beautiful purple and white flowers can often be found around garden borders.
As a skincare ingredient, it contains a rarer and more functional long chain nervonic acid which makes it an effective natural moisturiser.
Find Lunaria in our Botanical Serum.
Poppy Seed Oil
Poppies are a well loved beautiful botanical that can be found in many of our gardens.
A UK grown and processed oil. Its profile makes it a perfect ingredient to use on skin that is damaged from time in the sun. A fast absorbing oil that revives tired irritated and mature skin. Find it in our Botanical Serum.
Borage (Starflower) Oil
Another firm British garden favourite grown and processed in the UK. From the garden to your serum bottle!
Borage is rich in Essential Fatty Acids, making it another perfect ingredient for soothing dry and damaged skin. Find it in Botanical Serum.
Antioxident cold-pressed Hibiscus oil is used in our products. Not only for the wonderful benefits it provides for tired stressed skin, it also contains enzymes which mildly exfoliate the skin to help speed up cell turnover. This is why we include it in our Botanical Oil to Milk Cleanser and our Botanical Serum.
Raspberry Seed Oil
A by-product of the food and drink industry, this oil is regenerative with a rich fatty acid profile. Mild fruit enzymes increase cell turnover which make it an excellent choice for our Botanical Oil to Milk Cleanser.
A soft velvety oil which is wonderfully soothing for sensitive and damaged skin. Oats have been used for years in skincare to treat skin topically. We use oats in our Botanical Oil to Milk Cleanser to calm weather beaten skin.
Tomato Seed Oil
Part of our five a day! A wonderful oil that is a by-product of the food and drink industry. Tomato Seed oil is excellent for tackling free radical damage and promote skin recovery. It is particularly good for mature damaged skin. Find it in our range of Botanical Body Oils.
Shea Butter has been used for years to soften and soothe dry damaged skin. The oil is extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree. Due to its known properties of repairing and restoring, we use it in our body oils to combat the effects of the sun and leave your skin feeling soft and nourished. Find Shea in our Botanical Body Oils.
Squalane is naturally derived from Olives and matches the skin's natural sebum whilst giving the skin antioxidant protection. We love using it in all of our products as it helps calm inflammation and and soften the skin. In addition, it helps lock in moisture.
Coenzyme Q10 is found in almost every tissue of our body. As we get older, aging and stress slow down the CoQ10 creation process. Adding it to our skincare routine can help prevent and repair the damage caused by photoaging. It can help even out skin tone, firm up skin and protect it long term against environmental stress. Find it in Botanical Serum and Botanical Body Oils.
