White Willow Bark, Salix alba, is a common tree in wetlands and near watercourses. It contains a high amount of salicylic acid (a natural Beta Hydroxy Acid used in aspirin) and mild antimicrobial constituents. Salicylic acid works by causing the cells of the epidermis to slough off more easily, helping to prevent pore congestion and allowing room for new cell growth. Salix alba is a useful ingredient in skin care in which pore congestion and acne are an issue. In addition, Willow naturally and effectively supports skin clarity while helping to calm redness.
The argania tree, also known as the Moroccan ironwood tree, is a thorny evergreen tree native to southwestern Morocco and grown for its plum-sized fruits. Inside the fruits large seeds containing highly esteemed oil are found. The seeds are pressed to obtain argan oil, an expensive and highly useful cooking oil with a nutty flavor. Argan oil is very emollient (similar to peanut oil, but without the allergen) and rich in naturally occurring antioxidants such as flavonoids and tocopherols that have anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, it contains 56 mg/Kg of polyphenols, double the amount of tocopherols (620 mg/Kg) than olive oil (320 mg/Kg), and linoleic acid comprises 34% of its total fatty acid content. Its anti-aging and skin restructuring properties coupled with a high vitamin A and vitamin E content make it a wonderful skin and haircare product ingredient.
