- Aloe Ferox - known for its medicinal qualities and has been called "A pharmacy in a plant". Aloe Ferox's gel-like flesh has been used in the traditional healing practices of KhoiSan people of Southern Africa for centuries. It is known for its superior moisturizing, antiseptic, cleansing, and anti-inflammatory properties. It improves skin's elasticity, promotes regeneration, helps heal chapped skin and helps reduce the forming of wrinkles.
- Marula Oil (Tree) - One of the most valued indigenous wild fruit trees among the tribes of Southern Africa. For years, women in the rural areas of Africa have cracked the nut of the marula fruit to extract the precious kernels from which the oil is made. This healing oil is used as a cosmetic, massaged into the skin of their face, hands and feet. Across the generations it has proven to protect against dry, chapped, cracking skin. Easily absorbed, high proportions of oleic and essential linoleic fatty acid combine to make the oil ideal for topical application. Marula oil has also shown to improve skin hydration, skin smoothness and reduce redness.
- Griffonia Seed Extract - Since the plant is constantly under intense UV exposure, it developed a means to protect itself from UV damage in the form of 5-HTP. 5-HTP inhibits UV-induced cell death or extrinsic damage caused by UV radiation. In addition, it induces collagen synthesis and promotes skin elasticity.
- Honeybush - native to the Cape of South Africa, this soothing shrub contains an eclectic collection of actives, including quantities of bio-available magnesium, calcium and potassium along with bioflavonoids known for their antioxidant properties. In addition, it strengthens, repairs, softens and protects skin.
- Organic Fair Trade Shea Butter - derived from the African Karite Tree. It is one of the classic emollients, considered to be the most respected and well-known of all the butters for its intense moisturizing, soothing and balancing skin properties. Shea Butter promotes skin renewal, assists with the prevention of wrinkles, helps protect the skin from harsh elements, accelerates healing and is rich in Vitamins A, E, and F along with minerals.
