    Coconut (Cocos nucifera) Oil – 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).

    Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) Seed Oil – 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 aging. Jojoba may also aid absorption of other active skincare ingredients (Pazyar et al. 2013, PMID 24442052).

    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.

    Extra Virgin Olive (Olea europaea) Oil – Grampians, 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).

    Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima) Oil – 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 aging caused by sun damage (Rosenblat et al. 2011, PMID 20978772).

    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).

    Grapeseed (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 antiaging properties. Besides boosting hydration, grapeseed oil may also protect our skin and aid tissue regeneration (Lin et al. 2018, PMID 29280987).

    Kakadu Plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) - Australia Kakadu plum is one of our 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, and it has been used for centuries in indigenous medicine (Konczak et al. 2014, PMID 24423529).

    Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos flavidus) – Australia 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 antiaging world, as it significantly reduced wrinkle depth and neck sagging in female volunteers (Attia et al. 2018, doi: 10.1016/j.jid.2018.03.1474).

    Marshmallow Root (Althaea officinalis) 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).

    Calendula (Calendula officinalis) – Australia 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).

    Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) – Australia – Steam Distilled Eucalyptus 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).

    Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Oil – 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, hayfever or sinus congestion.

    Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia Oil) – 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, antifungal 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).

    Lemon Oil (Citrus limonium) Oil – 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).

    Lavender (Lavender angustifolia) Oil – 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).

    Sweet Marjoram (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).

    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).

    Vitamin E (Tocopherol) – Australia Vitamin E is a soothing, protective antioxidant that can help fight premature aging, 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).

    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).
