Allantoin: Allantoin has soothing, moisturizing and healing properties. It moisturizes the skin to prevent dryness and irritation and is wonderful for sensitive skin because of it's non-irritable nature. It helps in shedding dead skin cells to keep the skin smooth, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. This intensely soothing ingredient is known for healing irritated skin, wounds & retains water in the skin cells to make your skin feel plumper & softer. Furthermore, allantoin stimulates collagen production to tighten & firm the skin from oxidation damage!
Retinyl Palmitate: While all retinoids are all vitamin A-derivatives with similar benefits, they're definitely not identical. The main benefits of using retinoids are promoting skin cell turnover, improving skin tone, helps unclogging pores & helps thicken the dermis to slow down the formation of wrinkles. Because retinyl palmitate is the least irritating of all four retinoids, it's a great option for almost all skin types and anyone who want to keep their pores clear and skin youthful! It causes the cells on the epidermis—the outermost layer of the skin—to rapidly turnover and die, resulting in smoother, more radiant skin with less discoloration and overall more even tone. In speeding up cell turnover & acting as an exfoliant, it also helps unclog pores and keep them clear. Retinoids also hinder the breakdown of collagen & thicken the deeper layer of the dermis, where wrinkles begin to form.
Squalane: Harvested from plant sources like olives, wheat germ oil, and rice bran, this super hydrating ingredient is a highly-effective emollient and natural antioxidant. Using squalane in skincare can reduce wrinkles, eliminate scars, reverse UV damage, lighten freckles and erase skin pigmentation, all while fighting free radicals.
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein has been shown as one of the most effective pore minimizers in modern skin care, providing the porcelain look when utilized in facial cleansers, toners, serums & moisturisers. It is an excellent tensor and film-forming properties that increases firmness of the skin, it retains moisture in the skin protecting it from drying out, making it soft and conditioned, & is found to reduce the appearance of wrinkles!
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is an essential nutrient required for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body, including the skin. As an antioxidant, one of it's main functions is protecting the skin. Normal cellular processes, as well as environmental factors like UV light & pollution, create free radicals in the skin. By scavenging these free radicals, vitamin C protects the skin, keeping it healthy and improving visible signs of aging. It also plays an important role in collagen synthesis & is effective in lightening unwanted brown spots or decreasing hyperpigmentation by blocking the pathway of pigment synthesis.
Papaya: Improves your complexion courtesy of the active enzymes present in it, such as papain. It helps reduce pigmentation, controls acne breakouts & wrinkle formation. Papaya is rich in antioxidants, such as lycopene, that can help fight free radical damage, improve the elasticity of your skin & minimize the appearance of wrinkles. The enzymes papain and chymopapain in papaya can decrease inflammation. Papain exfoliates the skin & reduces acne by removing dead skin cells that can clog pores. The enzymes, beta-carotene, vitamins & phytochemicals in papaya have lightening & softening effects on hyperpigmentation & scarring.
Gotu Kola: Gotu kola should definitely be on your top most wanted list. It contains asiatcoside which supports collagen function, acne and wound healing. It is also rich in various alkaloids, glycosides, phenolic compounds, flavonoids, triterpenoids and saponins. Research has linked this incredible herb to improving skin firmness, elasticity, improving circulation & reducing the appearance of scar tissue. Gotu Kola acts as an antioxidant to help reduce inflammatory conditions and protect cells.
Gingko Biloba: Highly concentrated with flavonoids and terpenoids, such as ginkgolides and bilobalides, gingko biloba extract is considered to be one of the most advantageous cosmetic ingredients for skin care. Gingko biloba benefits for skin have been suggested to include potent antioxidant protection, skin-soothing effects, increased skin-hydration, and significant anti-aging defense. Gingko biloba’s high concentration of antioxidant compounds-polyphenols and flavonoids- play a role in neutralizing free radicals that are present in the environment. Furthermore, its ability to reduce levels of oxidative stress advertently contributes a soothing effect that may help to alleviate problematic skin.
Cranberry: These nutritious berries are also a natural source of flavonoids (an antioxidant) and salicylic acid (a beta hydroxy acid or BHA). Each of these ingredients has astringent and antiseptic properties that reduce sebum, clear pores and minimize the look of pimples. Additionally, Cranberries have trace minerals of potassium, manganese, and anti-inflammatory properties, which help prevent collagen break down and can blunt breakouts for those prone to adult acne. Vitamins C, B3 and arbutin also contribute to improving the appearance of problem skin by brightening the look of scars and dark marks left behind by breakouts.
Maracujá (Passionfruit): Maracujá is rich with some wonderful vitamins and minerals, a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and the B vitamins riboflavin and niacin. It also has a high content of essential fatty acids, calcium and phosphorus. This delicious oil readily penetrates the skin to deeply moisturize and reduce dry skin. Thanks to the high fatty acid content, it penetrates the skin to bring moisturizer much more effectively than other oils. The high content of the antioxident lycopene helps to improve skin tone and works with vitamin C to help promote collagen production. Passionfruit oil balances the skin’s moisture and helps to reduce oily skin, reduces inflammation to help treat acne, rashes and other skin conditions & scavenges free radicals with its antioxidant properties, preventing damage while helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Kalahari Melon Seed: Kalahari melon seed oil is a great choice for a natural facial cleanse. The oil is super-rich in linolenic acid; which makes up between 50% and 70% of its entire content.

Kalahari melon seed oil is really rich in both Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids These stimulate skin cell growth, prompting regeneration and giving skin a much plumper, fresher appearance.
Red Raspberry Seed: When looking for the best natural ingredients for our Komorebi Range, I chose red raspberry seeds. They contain high levels of essential fatty acids, particularly omega 3 and omega 6 which help to promote the skin's health and appearance. The red raspberry seeds also provide a natural source of vitamin E, which helps to prevent damage caused by free radicals from environmental stressors. They high level of natural vitamin E, increase hydration, barrier function and integrity, due to high levels of essential fatty acids. This incredible fruity oil is also a natural defence against free radical damage from environmental stressors, such as UV radiation or pollution.
Sea Buckthorn: Used in Chinese Medicine for over 1000 years, sea buckthorn is incredibly rich in vitamins & minerals. This fruit contains an exceptional concentration of natural anti-aging Vitamin C, which is 12 times higher than that of an orange! It contains over 190 nutrients and phytonutrients, and high amounts of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein, making it a powerful superfood. Sea buckthorn contains more vitamin E than any other plant-based oil known at this time, beta-carotene, omega-3, omega-6, omega-9 & is extremely powerful in promoting cell regeneration. This oil is therefore best used for skin prone to aging, breakouts, rosacea, inflammation, eczema & psoriasis.
Panax Ginseng: Ginseng is the most precious yet widely consumed ingredient in Asian traditional medicine. No matter what your skin type is or what your concerns with your complexion may be, ginseng can assist you. That's because ginseng is a natural skin balancer. If fine lines & wrinkles are your focus, ginseng can help boost the circulation of your skin's smallest blood vessels, in turn ramping up the synthesis of collagen. It's antioxidant properties protect your skin from free radicals and other environmental aggressors that could trigger the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. For those dealing with dullness, ginseng's coffee-like energizing factors will help brighten and revitalize your complexion. Hyper-pigmentation is no match for ginseng either, as it helps inhibit melanin production!
Medicinal CBD: CBD oil plays a vital role in keeping your skin hydrated & healthy. It has antioxidant properties that reduce the visible signs of aging on your skin. Hemp plants that produce CBD oil contain two fatty acids, Omega 6 and Omega 3, that stimulates the production of collagen and thus preventing excessive water loss. This magical oil has a perfect balance of nutrients and substances that will nourish and moisturize your skin. It helps to stop the peeling of the skin & rough patches and has amazing anti-inflammatory & healing benefits.
