    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).

    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).

    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).

    Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) Oil – 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).

    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 aging (Scapagnini et al. 2014, PMID 25116848).

    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).

    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).

    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).
