Emulsifying Wax

This enables water and oil to mix together.

GeoGard Ultra

It’s commonly used in beauty products for it’s ability to act as a preservative.

Helichrysum italicum

Helichrysum essential oil contains special properties that make it an antioxidant, an antibacterial and anti fungal.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint is used to cool and soothe the skin to prevent excess itching with the added benefit of keeping the mosquitoes away!

Lavender Essential Oil

Relieves skin inflammation and itching. Lavender helps to heal burns, scars and insect bites.

Manuka Hydrosol

Hydrosols are produced by distilling plant materials through steam. When producing essential oils, some essential compounds are dissolved, and the condensed fragrant steam becomes hydrosols.

The hydrosols contain some drops of the essential oil and water-soluble plant properties. These agents are all non-irritating and anti-inflammatory, which makes them good on sensitive skin and can be used for both pets and humans.

Manuka hydrosol is ideal for animal care. The Manuka plant’s natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties help with the healing of cuts, rashes, infections and abrasions. It also helps repel some flying insects from the affected area. Please note that Manuka and Kanuka Hydrosol is not suitable to be used on cats.

Manuka essential oil is full of natural compounds that make it so desirable in the treatment of a broad spectrum of conditions, studies have proven that Manuka contains the following properties:

  • Antibacterial
  • Anti-fungal
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antiseptic
  • Antimicrobial

Patchouli oil

Has long been used in traditional Asian medicine, especially in Malaysia, China and Japan. It is used to treat skin and hair problems, such as dermatitis, eczema, acne, dry chapped skin, dandruff, and oily scalp. It also has wound healing and scar reducing properties.

Sesame oil

Is rich in essential fatty acids like linoleic acid and palmitic acids. It is linoleic acid that gives both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties for sesame oil.  Sesame oil is rich in antioxidants, hence they are easily absorbed into the skin, nourishes it from deep inside and promotes skin softness.

Titanium dioxide

Inert earth mineral used as a thickening, whitening, lubricating, and sunscreen ingredient in cosmetics. It protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered no risk of skin sensitivity. Because its gentle, titanium dioxide is a great sunscreen active for sensitive, redness-prone skin. Titanium dioxide is considered safe.
