our ingredients…

Organic Sugar

(Sucrose)

Our Scrubs use organic granulated sugar as their base – the benefits of using sugar within skincare have been known for years but are often forgotten.

A natural source of glycolic acid, sugar gently exfoliates the skin and encourages skin cell renewal whilst drawing moisture from the environment, thereby hydrating and softening your skin naturally.  Sugar feeds your skin and (unlike salt), does not strip it of its natural oils.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil

(Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil)

Sweet Almond Oil will naturally soften, nourish and revitalise your skin.  It is rich in Vitamin E and offers long lasting protection for your hands.

Natural Vitamin E

(Tocopherol (70%), Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil)

The natural Vitamin E we use is mixed with a little Sunflower Seed Oil and is of the highest concentration and quality we can find.

Vitamin E is easily absorbed by the skin, is an anti inflammatory and will condition and protect your skin.

Organic Bergamot Oil

(Citrus Aurantium Bergamia Fruit Oil)

Bergamot essential oil uplifts and refreshes, soothes and relaxes – a great all rounder.

Organic Blood Orange Essential Oil

(Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Peel Oil)

An essential oil favourite, our organic Blood Orange adds a warm note to the blend whilst uplifting and soothing the skin.

Sandalwood Essential Oil

(Santalum Austrocaledonicum Wood Oil)

Our Sandalwood has similar properties to the traditional Mysore Sandalwood, but is from a sustainable source.  Sandalwood is a warm, relaxing and deep fragrance that soothes, rehydrates and tones the skin.

Organic Green Mandarin Essential Oil

(Citrus Nobilis Peel Oil)

Mandarin is a sweet and fruity essential oil, and is the perfect partner to Sandalwoods’ deep notes.  It offers a gentle and soothing effect to the skin.

Organic Frankincense Essential Oil

(Boswellia Carterii Oil)

Frankincense is a warm, deep and spicy fragrance that will help to calm and rejuvenate you.

Organic Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

(Cananga Odorata Flower Oil)

A sweet and exotic fragrance that will soothe and relax you.

Organic Lavender Essential Oil

(Lavandula Angustifolia Oil)

Lavender is one of the mildest (and most popular), essential oils, it is very effective at restoring and balancing you and your skin.

Preservative

(Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin)

These are the most natural preservatives in regular cosmetic use, they are paraben free and are included in the Scrubs as they are a broad spectrum preservative against bacteria, yeasts and mould – allowing your Scrub to last longer.

Rose Absolute

Rosa Damascena Flower Extract

Our Rose Absolute is produced from the Rosa Damascena petals, also known as the Damask Rose.   It has a rich, red-orange colour and deep, sweet but fresh aroma which blends very well within skincare products. Rose petals are harvested by hand, before sunrise and processed the same day.

Rose Absolute is beneficial for all skin types especially those with dry and sensitive skin.

Organic Patchouli Essential Oil

Pogostemon Cablin Oil

Another ancient essential oil that is wonderful to use in skincare products as it can help to regenerate skin cells and rehydrate dry skin.

Our organic Patchouli essential oil has a rich, exotic, musky aroma yet it is also sweet, fresh and spicy. A really relaxing, uplifting and sensual oil.

 

Organic Grapefruit Essential Oil

Citrus Paradisi Peel Oil

Our organic Grapefruit essential oil is a refreshing and stimulating oil that energises the mind and body. A good ‘all rounder’ it cleanses the skin and uplifts the mind.

It has a sharp, refreshing aroma that is not too sweet.

Organic Ginger Essential Oil

Zingiber Officinale Root Oil

Our organic Ginger essential oil is strong, earthy, warm, woody and spicy. It has a soothing and warming effect on the skin and although it is a strong smelling oil, once blended with Grapefruit you are left with a wonderful uplifting aroma.

Organic Peppermint Essential Oil

Mentha Piperita Oil

Our organic Peppermint essential oil uses a plant that is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint. It feels cooling, refreshing, cleansing and invigorating on the skin.

Wonderful to use after gardening, cooking or when in need of a little ‘pick me up’.

 

Organic Cedarwood Essential Oil

Cedrus Atlantica Wood Oil

Our organic Cedarwood essential oil provides the calming woody base note and balance to the blend.

Extracted from the Atlas Cedarwood tree is said to have a soothing effect on the mind and body.

Organic Mandarin Essential Oil

Citrus Nobilis Peel Oil

Our organic Mandarin essential oil uses the peel of the Mandarin Orange which has a sweet, zesty and uplifting aroma.

It can relieve stress and digestive problems but is mostly used to increase circulation to the skin, where it can reduce fluid retention.

Organic Lime Essential Oil

Citrus Aurantifolia Oil

Our organic Lime essential oil is fresh, sharp, zesty and mouthwatering and is distilled from the whole fruit.

It has a really ‘clean’ aroma, which can help lighten the mood. Lime essential oil can help fight cellulite and will tone the skin in general.

Green Coffee Oil

Coffea Arabica Seed Oil

A really wonderful ingredient within our Body Scrub, the cold pressed green coffee beans deliver a deep, rich ‘nutty’ green oil.

The whole coffee beans are not roasted so there is no impact from heat processing, so all the nutrients are left in their purest form with higher volumes of fatty acids and vitamins.

A great antioxidant, easily absorbed by the skin and a highly moisturising oil.

In addition, the oil balances the natural moisture levels of the skin, increasing the production of collagen. It is becoming increasingly popular in cosmetic formulations.

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, specifically a fraction of fatty acid from coconut oil. Within the cosmetic industry it is usually used as an emollient and dispersing agent.

We include it as an emollient as it quickly conditions the skin and provides a lightweight, non-greasy lubricating barrier; and as a dispersing agent, it helps to enhance the delivery of vitamins and the active ingredients contained in the Scrub so that they become evenly spread and fully absorbed by the skin.
