Ingredients that are not refined or bleached:
Certified Organic is an assurance of safety not quality. We have sourced not only the safest ingredients but also with guarantees the highest quality. RBD (refined, bleached, deodorized) products have ultimately been stripped of some of their vital nutrients after RBD processing. We avoid using these RBD products.
Aloe Vera (powder)
Grown in North Africa and mainly in Morocco, the Argan tree grows wild in semi-desert soil, and is extremely well adapted to drought. Argan Oil is produced from the kernels of this plant, and it is considered to be one of the rarest oils in the world due to the small and very specific areas in which it is grown.
It is rich in antioxidants and omega 6 fatty acids, and contains twice as much vitamin E as Olive Oil. This oil supports the hydration of the skin and helps to soften it, thereby minimizing the appearance of fine lines. It can also be used used to improve the texture of acne-prone skin, helping it to maintain a youthful, glowing appearance. Helps treat burns, wounds, eczema, brittle fingernails, and dry hair.
Beet Root (organic, powder)
Blackcurrant Seed Oil
It is believed to be very rich in antioxidants and gamma-linolenic acid, which makes it a highly effective soothing agent. Studies have shown it to be a good treatment for rheumatoid arthritis.

It can also be used to slow premature aging.

Grapeseed oil (cold-pressed, extra-virgin)
Extracted from the jojoba bean in a process that optimizes quality rather than maximizing yields, certified organic jojoba oil is a liquid wax ester that very closely resembles skin sebum. This results in a natural affinity to human skin, allowing it to be easily absorbed. Because it is not actually an oil, it doesn't contain triglycerides (fats), which are fragile and easily broken down. As a result, pure jojoba oil doesn't oxidize or turn rancid easily. Prized for its humectant and lubrication properties, certified organic jojoba oil is completely compatible with sensitive skin.
Helps restore the normal oil balance of the skin; anti-inflammatory; emollient; prevents moisture loss from the skin plus draws moisture into the skin.
Our jojoba is also expeller pressed avoiding high temperatures....it is 100% pure, unrefined, first-press golden jojoba.

Sea Kelp Bioferment - A natural kelp extract from fermentation of Sea Kelp using Lactobacillus, the same bacteria that produces yogurt. Fermentation breaks down the cellular tissue of the kelp leaf, thereby increasing the bioavailability of the naturally occurring polyphenols and essential fatty acids in kelp. Naturally occurring algin, the mucilaginous intercellular material found in kelp thickens this product to a gel consistency. Our sea kelp is harvested from the Atlantic coast of North America.
Sesame seed oil (cold-pressed, organic)
Shea Butter Originating from the seeds of the African karite tree, unrefined shea butter contains up to 8% unsaponifiables, which are natural fats, oils and waxes that provide moisturizing and conditioning.

Fights Inflammation and provides deep hydration.

Squalane (EcoCert)- Our Squalane is 100% derived from plant sugars using biotechnology in a sustainable way. Until recently squalane was a luxury skincare ingredient harvested from shark livers. Later it was and still often is harvested from olives but is not very eco-friendly or reliable. Squalane is Nature's best moisturizing molecule also found in human skin but with varying levels with age!
Hemisqualane - Also derived from plant sugars using biotechnology. It is an innovative lighter moisturizer with very high spreadability. Often called Squalane Light.
Sunflower seed oil
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C ester)
Incidental ingredients - Some of the botanical extracts are supplied to us in a mixture with sunflower seed oil, glycerin, or fractionated coconut oil. Some are supplied mixed in water in which case the supplier adds preservatives in very tiny percentage like potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, chlorphenesin, propylene glycol, sodium dehydroacetate. Their final percentage in our products is insignificant. The only preservatives we add are a radish root complex and antioxidant vitamin E.
