Key ingredients and aroma

Key ingredients and aroma

Aloe Vera

Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Extract


Beyond its extraordinary healing properties, soothing powers, and antioxidant qualities, skin-friendly Aloe Vera has a low risk of causing allergies, sensitivity or reactions, making it suitable for all skin types even the most sensitive. The natural gel from the plant has a high-water content as well as polysaccharides making it an excellent hydrator for parched skin.




Oligopeptides, also known simply as peptides, are powerful cellular communicators, meaning they can send key messages to skin cells to prompt certain activity. Peptides are supremely effective for anti-ageing concerns as they are small enough to penetrate the skin where they can create changes by telling the skin to produce collagen, or repair or regenerate itself resulting in stronger, firmer skin.

Finger Lime

Citrus Australasica


Small but mighty, the Finger Lime is a powerhouse of bioactives bursting with skin refining benefits. The natural AHA gently exfoliates dissolving dead cells to reveal renewed and glowing skin. With three times the Vitamin C found in a mandarin, the complexion is brightened and restored through increased collagen production and the neutralising of free radicals.


Rose Myrtle

Archirhodomyrtus beckleri (Rose Myrtle) Extract


An aromatic flora, Rose Myrtle is naturally anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. Found in our backyard this native soothes and calms redness and inflammation. Recommended for acne and blemish prone skin types, Rose Myrtle significantly reduces sebum without stripping the natural moisture barrier and improves the appearance of oily skin over time.
