Our Botanical Extracts

Botanical extracts play an important role in our formulation as we incorporate their wonderful effects in delivering skincare solutions. Below is a list of some of the extracts present in our products.

Centella asiatica is traditionally used to support fast healing of small wounds, scratches, and superficial burns. It is also used as an anti-inflammatory ingredient for eczema, minor itching, and insect bites. Studies have shown that the main constituents of centella asiatica (asiatic acid, madecassic acid, and asiaticoside) increase collagen synthesis, which are essential in slowing down skin aging. Our centella asiatica extract is certified by ECOCERT Greenlife according to the COSMOS Standard.

The flowers of hibiscus have antioxidant properties and inhibit elastin degradation, helping to maintain the skin's elasticity and thereby offering anti-aging effects.

Due to its saponin and mucilage content, calendula has moisturizing properties making it ideal for dry, irritated, and delicate skin. It has long been used topically to treat skin ulcers, infected wounds, diaper rash, eczema, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, periodontitis, and conjunctivitis. Our calendula extract is certified by ECOCERT Greenlife according to the COSMOS Standard.

An enduring symbol of the Alps, edelweiss extract is a product of cultivated edelweiss plants grown at high altitude in the Swiss Alps, without pesticides or chemicals. Edelweiss extract also contains phytochemicals such as chlorogenic acid (antioxidant activity, radical scavenging), luteolin (hyaluronidase inhibition, antineoplastic activity), bisabolene derivatives (anti-inflammatory activity) and beta sitosterol (anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, bactericidal activity).

Our Plant Oils

In formulating each of our skincare products, we carefully incorporated numerous plant oils for the intended purpose of the products, that include but not limited to the following:

*Cranberry seed oil contains high levels of Vitamin A and Vitamin E and is a very rich source of tocotrienols, Omega 3, and Omega 6. It helps to improve skin firmness, strengthen hair and nails, and provides anti-aging support.

*Abyssinian seed oil is naturally high in erucic acid, up to 65%, and has excellent properties for the strengthening, gloss and manageability of hair, and the rehydration and protection of dry skin.

*Meadowfoam seed oil is well-known in cosmetics due to its long chain fatty acids, which provides properties such as easy skin absorption, extra emollience and moisturizing effect, and effective UV protection.

Jojoba oil has a similar molecular structure and composition to sebum, which the skin naturally produces for moisturization and is rich in Vitamin E. When applied to skin, jojoba oil mimics the skin’s sebum and balances out your complexion. Our jojoba oil is certified by ECOCERT Greenlife according to the COSMOS Standard.

Rose geranium flower oil stimulates the lymphatic and immune systems and relieves premenstrual and menstrual tension, circulatory problems, general infections, and eczema.

Ylang ylang flower oil enhances the relaxation and balance of emotions, which helps to reduce stress and promote positivity. The scent, nourishing and protective properties make it a perfect fit for our luxurious skin care products.
