Our Ingredients


Avocado Oil  (Persea gratissima)  –  Australia  –  Unrefined

Avocado seed oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, such as oleic acid (omega-9) and linoleic acid (omega-6), plus plant precursors to vitamin A, and vitamins B1, D and E. This nourishing oil helps to protect cells from damage and reduces inflammation, making it very popular in anti-aging products. While it is no replacement for sunscreen, this may include ageing caused by sun damage (Rosenblat et al. 2011, PMID 20978772).


Beeswax  (Cera alba)  –  Australia  –  Unrefined

Beeswax is a natural emollient and humectant, providing moisture to the skin and acting as a protective barrier against irritants. It can protect against irritant contact dermatitis, with a trial showing beeswax to be more effective than some commercial creams (Frosch et al. 2003, PMID 16295040). Our beeswax comes from our own hives; we love our bees, so they are not harmed during harvesting. Beeswax is the perfect ingredient to base our balms on, as it provides amazing protection to your skin.


Calendula  (Calendula officinalis)  –  Australia  –  Biodynamic Oil Infusion

Our calendula-infused oil is made from hand-picked, bio-dynamically grown calendula flowers. Calendula is an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic ingredient that contains high levels of antioxidants, such as flavonoids, and triterpenoids. These properties mean calendula is widely used to treat skin conditions such as nappy rash, dermatitis, acne and dry skin. It can also speed wound healing (WHO, 2004).


Cocoa Butter  (Theobroma cacao)  –  Ghana  –  Unrefined

Cocoa butter is the pressed fat from cacao beans, the seeds of the cocoa tree, which is left over from cocoa powder production. Rich in antioxidants and healthy fats, it is a nourishing moisturiser that can help in a wide range of skin complaints. Cocoa butter’s benefits may include anti-inflammatory, circulation- (and oxygen-) boosting abilities, which can boost collagen production and fight premature skin ageing (Scapagnini et al. 2014, PMID 25116848).


Coconut Oil  (Cocos nucifera)  –  Fiji  –  Cold Pressed

Coconut oil is a wonderful moisturiser, used as a base in our balms. Easily absorbed because of its smaller fatty acids, coconut oil has been found to improve hydration, protect the skin barrier and have mild antimicrobial effects. It is also an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, guarding skin cells against damage. Research has shown that it can be more effective than mineral oil in treating dry skin, even in many cases of dermatitis (Evangelista et al. 2014, PMID 24320105).


Cypress Oil  (Cupressus sempervirens)  –  Spain  –  Steam Distilled

Cypress oil is renowned for its antiseptic qualities, provided by the presence of camphene. Tests have found that it has strong effects against many common species of bacteria (Selim et al. 2014, PMID 24890383). Besides this, cypress oil is cleansing and soothing, with a fresh, woody, evergreen and mildly spicy scent.


Eucalyptus Oil  (Eucalyptus globulus)  –  Australia  –  Steam Distilled

Eucalyptus globulus, more commonly referred to as Blue Gum, is a woody eucalyptus with strong antiseptic, antibacterial & antiviral qualities. Besides helping to directly fight respiratory infections, it can provide symptomatic relief by reducing airway inflammation and mucus production (Lu et al. 2004, PMID 15719688).


Eucalyptus Oil  (Eucalyptus radiata)  –  Australia  –  Steam Distilled

Eucalyptus Narrow Leaf, or Eucalyptus Australiana, oil has a soft, fresh peppermint scent. Its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties make it a perfect addition to preparations for rashes and respiratory infections (Bendaoud et al. 2009, doi: 10.1002/jsfa.3585). We use this species of eucalyptus in our Baby “Bee Well Balm”, safe for babies from three months.


Evening Primrose Oil  (Oenothera biennis)  –  China  –  Cold Pressed

Evening primrose oil is rich in gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), which is necessary for collagen production. Its abilities to calm inflammation and relieve roughness may help in forms of dermatitis such as eczema, and it is a popular ingredient in preparations for these issues (Horrobin, 2000, PMID 10617999).


Extra Virgin Olive Oil  (Olea europaea)  –  Australia  –  Cold Pressed

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is sourced from our friends, Olive Grove, in the Grampians – just down the road from us. Olive oil is rich in oleic acid, and a range of antioxidants more potent than vitamin E. Studies have shown that olive oil can reduce inflammation and improve tissue repair, making it a great remedy for aged, irritated skin (Lin et al. 2018, PMID 29280987).


Ginger Oil  (Zingiber officinale)  –  Sri Lanka  –  Steam Distilled
Ginger oil gives a spicy, woody scent to skincare products. It has been found to possess anti-inflammatory abilities through several key pathways, which may have positive effects against issues like rheumatism. Ginger can also help stimulate digestion and relieve nausea (WHO, 2004). Our Ginger Oil is extracted from plants native to Sri Lanka and has undergone extensive testing to ensure its high quality.


Grapeseed Oil  (Vitus vinifera)  –  Italy  –  Cold Pressed

Grapeseed oil is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants such as vitamins and phenolic compounds. One antioxidant is the famous resveratrol, known for its potential anti-ageing properties. Besides boosting hydration, grapeseed oil may also protect our skin and aid tissue regeneration (Lin et al. 2018, PMID 29280987).


Hemp Seed Oil  (Cannabis sativa)  –  Australia  –  Cold Pressed

Hemp Seed Oil is a magical carrier oil that works to rejuvenate and strengthen the skin. It contains skin-loving fatty acids such as linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). The combination of Linoleic acid and ALAs is also known as Vitamin F, a compound with many benefits for the skin. Vitamin F helps to protect the skin’s barrier that locks in moisture and keeps irritants out. GLA is an omega-6 essential fatty acid and is beneficial for soothing redness and inflammation associated with dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.


Jojoba Seed Oil  (Simmondsia chinensis)  –  Australia  –  Cold Pressed

Jojoba oil (pronounced ho-ho-ba) is a nutrient-rich wax that we use in all our balms. It penetrates easily into the skin, suits all skin types, and is rich in vitamin E, B vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids. A review of research suggests that jojoba may be anti-inflammatory, promote wound healing and act against premature ageing. Jojoba may also aid absorption of other active skincare ingredients (Pazyar et al. 2013, PMID 24442052).


Kakadu Plum  (Terminalia ferdinandiana)  –  Australia  –  Oil Infusion

Kakadu plum is one of our favourite native Australian superfoods, infused into most of our balms. As an antioxidant, it is 13 times stronger than blueberries (Konczak et al., CSIRO). This is due to its high levels of vitamin C, which are many times greater than oranges, as well as other antioxidants such as ellagic acid. In fact, Kakadu plum is a uniquely rich source of ellagic acid. These may give the fruit strong antiaging and antiseptic properties (Konczak et al. 2014, PMID 24423529).


Kangaroo Paw  (Anigozanthos flavidus)  –  Australia  –  Oil Infusion

Kangaroo Paw is an Australian native wonderful for attracting bees. Research published in 2018 also suggests that kangaroo paw may become a new star in the anti-ageing world of skincare, as it significantly reduced wrinkle depth and neck sagging in female volunteers (Attia et al. 2018, doi: 10.1016/j.jid.2018.03.1474).


Lavender Oil  (Lavender angustifolia)  –  Australia  –  Steam Distilled

Lavender oil is widely known and used for its calming and soothing properties, both on the skin and psychologically. Infections, burns, bites and damage from weather or age are popular indications. A number of trials have shown it may be effective in anxiety, insomnia and even pain (Koulivand et al. 2013, PMID 23573142).


Lemon Oil  (Citrus limonium)  –  Italy  –  Steam Distilled

Lemon oil is an antiseptic, antibacterial essential oil. Its fresh, uplifting aroma can help to soothe headaches, as well as boosting alertness and clearing cloudy minds (Jimbo et al. 2009, PMID 20377818).


Manuka Honey  (Leptospermum scoparium)  –  Australia

Our active Australian Manuka honey has an MGO (methylgloxal) rating of 263+, a medium-strength antibacterial honey. Manuka honey is produced when bees feed on the Leptospermum (Manuka) plant, and indigenous peoples from Australia and New Zealand have been using it in traditional medicine for many years. While ordinary honey has antimicrobial properties from high sugar and low (acidic) pH, Manuka honey is far stronger due to high levels of the naturally occurring chemical methylglyoxal (MGO). MGO is produced during dehydration of a phytochemical in Leptospermum flowers, and can be present in Manuka honey at over 70 times the level of ordinary honeys. Manuka honey is increasingly popular at home and in medical practice, to speed the healing of inflammation, wounds and infections (Carter et al. 2016, PMID 27148246).


Manuka Oil  (Leptospermum scoparium)  –  New Zealand  –  Steam Distilled

Like its honey sister, Manuka oil also has strong antiseptic, antibacterial effects; these may be effective against a wide range of bacterial species, including some that affect the skin (Wicaksono et al. PMID 27676607). As a soothing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, Manuka oil is wonderful for those with sensitive or mature skin. It has a woody, earthy and balsamic aroma.


Marshmallow Root  (Althaea officinalis)  –  Oil Infusion

Marshmallow root is a wonderfully soothing agent, providing relief from a range of irritations. Thanks to its high mucilage content, it has soothing, hydrating properties, and so may help to relieve sunburn, eczema and dermatitis (Dawid-Pac, 2013, PMID 24278070).


Peppermint Oil  (Mentha piperita)  –  Australia  –  Steam Distilled

Peppermint oil is an intense, fresh minty oil popular in personal care products. This useful oil has broad-spectrum antiseptic properties, and can help to open up the airways, making you feel refreshed and revitalised (Meamarbashi, 2014, PMID 25050303). These benefits can bring relief in cases of colds, flu, headache, hay-fever or sinus congestion.


Quandong  (Santalum acuminatum)  –  Australia  –  Oil Infusion

Quandong, also known as wild peach or native peach, is another prized native Australian superfood found in our Baby Beetanicals balms range. Like Kakadu plum, it is significantly higher in vitamin C than oranges, and contains many other antioxidants such as anthocyanins, flavonols and other phenolic compounds. It is 2.4 times more powerful as an antioxidant than blueberry according to one measurement; to another, it is 6.5 times higher (Konczak et al., CSIRO). Some antioxidants it possesses also provide antibacterial effects.


Roman Chamomile Oil  (Anthemis nobilis)  –  Hungary  –  Steam Distilled

Roman chamomile has been prized for centuries thanks to its range of health and beauty benefits. Its antioxidant and oil-rich, daisy-like flowers have anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, antibacterial and calming properties. Roman chamomile helps to relieve insomnia and irritation, and as it is one of the safest essential oils, we love to use it in our Baby Soothing and Chest balms (Ali et al. 2015, doi: 10.1016/j.apjtb.2015.05.007).


Rosehip Oil  (Rosa canina)  –  Chile  –  Cold Pressed

Rosehip oil comes from the seed and fruit ofRosa canina, the rose. It is high in the essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E and plant forms of vitamin A. The resulting antioxidant and anti-inflammatory abilities mean it may be regarded as a “miracle oil” in reducing signs of ageing, and may help relieve some forms of dermatitis (Lin et al. 2018, PMID 29280987).


Sesame Oil  (Sesamum indicum)  –  India  –  Cold Pressed

Sesame oil is an excellent soothing moisturiser, containing unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, B vitamins, zinc, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. Through its anti-inflammatory properties, sesame oil may help to soothe pain from limb injuries and irritation seen in rashes and UV exposure (Lin et al. 2018, PMID 29280987).


Shea Butter  (Butyrospermum parkii)  –  Ghana  –  Unrefined

Shea butter is taken from the nuts of shea trees, native to West Africa. It contains high levels of fatty acids, including oleic and linoleic acids, as well as vitamin E and other antioxidants. These contribute to its anti-inflammatory, protective properties, which helps reduce fine lines, regenerate skin, improve thickness by enhancing hydration, and relieve rashes (Lin et al. 2018, PMID 29280987).


Sorbitan Olivate  (derived from olives)  –  Australia

Sorbitan olivate is a natural emulsifier derived from olives. Emulsifiers keep ingredients blended; otherwise, oil- and water-based ingredients will separate and products may become less effective. It also brings its own moisturising properties to preparations (source: Britannica).


Spearmint Oil  (Mentha spicata)  –  Australia  –  Steam Distilled

Spearmint oil has a fresh, minty aroma that’s mild and sweet enough for younger children. Spearmint has been used for many years to calm the digestive system in cases of indigestion and travel sickness (Bone & Mills, 2013 –Principles and Practice of Phytotherapy). As a mint, it may also be antibacterial and ease symptoms of colds, flu and other respiratory complaints.


Sweet Marjoram Oil  (Origanum marjorana)  –  Spain  –  Steam Distilled

Marjoram means “joy of the mountains”, and has a spicy, woody and camphorous scent. An uplifting, calming oil, marjoram is used to relieve pain and spasms in the muscles, joints and respiratory system (Clarke, 2008 –Essential Chemistry for Aromatherapy).


Tea Tree Oil  (Melaleuca alternifolia)  –  Australia  –  Steam Distilled

Tea Tree Essential Oil is known for its fresh, earthy and herbaceous aroma, plus a range of medicinal uses. It has strong antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties. Clinical trials suggest that tea tree oil can help to relieve acne, dandruff and athlete’s foot. Its antimicrobial properties may make it a helpful remedy in respiratory infections if inhaled or used topically (Carson et al. 2006, PMID 16418522).


Vitamin E  (Tocopherol)  –  Australia

Vitamin E is a soothing, protective antioxidant that can help fight premature ageing, such as that caused by excessive sun exposure. It is also added to skincare products to keep them fresh for longer (Schagen et al. 2012, PMID 23467449).
