Severe dry skin saviour. Every affliction, whether it be tightness, cracking, or rough and scaly patches can benefit from the topical application of lanolin.
It’s lightweight, forming a non-occlusive barrier that doesn’t smother the skin.
It’s healing, with emollient properties that work to soften and repair aggravated areas by forming an oily layer - effectively incubating the top of the skin.
It’s hydrating, retaining twice it’s molecular weight in water, while mitigating trans epidermal water loss by up to 30%.
It’s synergetic, amplifying the moisturizing properties of other ingredients it’s paired with.
It penetrates the moisture barrier of the lips, as opposed to just sitting right on top - making it an excellent option for healing severely dry, chapped lips.

A sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin - which accounts for half of your body’s total output. As an ingredient, it’s primarily made by bacteria in a lab via a process called biofermentation.
It’s hydrating. It’s unique function is its capacity to retain moisture - holding over 1000 times its weight in water.
It regulates collagen production. It binds water to collagen, helping to stimulate its production more efficiently. Hydrated skin is functioning skin. Functioning skin is healthy skin.
It plays a key role in wound healing. Concentrations in the skin increase when there is damage in need of repair. It helps wounds heal faster by regulating inflammation levels and signaling the body to build more blood vessels in the damaged area.
It’s anti-aging. Your body’s turnover rate of hyaluronic acid is dynamic - it renews itself after less than a day. Due to aging, that turnover rate slows - resulting in a degradation of the principle molecule responsible for binding and retaining water molecules. This equates to a loss of skin hydration, diminished elasticity, restricted production of collagen and elastin, and a compromised skin barrier.
It’s also known as a postbiotic - an ingredient that naturally occurs as probiotics found in skin's microbiome break down, helping to rebuild your skin’s unique microbiome.

It’s a glutamic acid polypeptide.
It’s a hydration powerhouse. A humectant that holds over 4 times as much moisture as hyaluronic acid - nearly 5000 times its weight in water. It also increases the production of your body’s natural moisturizing factors carboxylic acid, lactic acid, pyrrolidone and urocanic acid.
It works synergistically with hyaluronic acid. It helps your body maintain an efficient production of it by inhibiting the action of the enzyme hyaluronidase that breaks down Hyaluronic Acid as we age. Hyaluronic acid reduces the effects of wrinkles and aging by improving skin hydration and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

It’s a fat that’s extracted from the nuts of the shea tree. It’s rich in fatty acids, including linoleic, oleic, stearic, and palmitic acids.
It’s moisturizing. When applied topically, these oils are rapidly absorbed into your skin. They act as a “refatting” agent, replenishing lipids and rapidly creating moisture. This contributes to the restoration of your skin barrier, moisture retention and a reduced risk of dryness.
It’s non-greasy. Linoleic acid and oleic acid balance each other out - allowing for an efficient absorption of shea that leaves your skin smooth but not slick after application.
It’s anti-inflammatory. When applied to the skin, it’s plant esters trigger cytokines and other inflammatory cells to slow their production. This may help minimize irritation caused by environmental factors, such as dry weather, as well as inflammatory skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.
It’s antioxidant. It’s rich in vitamins A and E, two nutrients with strong antioxidant activity. Antioxidants are important anti-aging agents. They protect your skin cells from free radicals that can lead to premature aging and dull-looking skin.
It’s antimicrobial. Topical application can help combat acne-causing bacteria on the skin.
It’s antifungal. It helps to fight skin infections caused by certain fungi - such as ringworm and athlete’s foot.
It’s anti-acne. It’s fatty acid content mimics your skin’s production of it’s natural oils, helping to regulate production and clearing it of excess sebum. The result is a restoration of the natural balance of oils in your skin - which can help stop acne before it starts.
It boosts collagen production. Shea butter contains triterpenes - naturally occurring chemical compounds thought to deactivate collagen fiber destruction.
It reduces the appearance of stretch marks and scarring. It stops keloid fibroblasts — scar tissue - from reproducing, while encouraging healthy cell growth to take their place.
It’s naturally sun-protectant. While it can’t be substituted for a sunscreen alone, it does contain a naturally occurring SPF of 4.

Oil derived from the kernels of the argan tree. Another dose of antioxidants, but paired with a robust concentration of fatty acids.
It’s a natural source of polyphenols and Vitamin E. It helps balance the production of free radicals, protecting against environmental stressors and oxidative stress.
It moisturizes and nourishes the skin. It softens its texture and appearance. It’s occlusive properties help mitigate trans-epidermal water loss, sealing in hydration and preventing further damage.
It’s anti-inflammatory. It soothes skin and placates redness. It alleviates acne and acne-scarring.
It’s lightweight, non greasy and non-comedogenic.

A moisturizing oil with impressive antioxidant properties that helps support the function of the skin’s protective lipid barrier.
It’s synergetic, working with other antioxidants in the skin to neutralize the damaging oxygen molecules generated when skin is exposed to pollution, UV rays and other environmental stressors..
It’s anti-inflammatory, with emollient properties that soften and smooth the skin while placating redness and evening skin tone.
It’s lightweight, non-comedogenic, and suitable for all skin types.
It’s extremely hydrating. A compound we naturally produce that locks in hydration by creating a lightweight yet protective barrier on the skin's surface.
It regulates oil production by mimicking our skin’s natural sebum production. It’s recognized by other lipids present in skin such as ceramides and cholesterol, where it works to visibly repair the skin barrier.

Conceived by nature. Revered by science.
Aloe embodies 75 bioactive constituents. This includes vitamins and minerals. Fatty acids and amino acids. Enzymes and Sugars. Salicylic acids.
It’s a playground of skin-supportive activity that ranges from antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, and antimicrobial to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticancer.
Its compounds accelerate wound healing. It treats both burns and lesions. It prevents redness and itching. It fights infection.
It’s anti-aging. It stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid. Of collagen and elastin fibres.
It’s anti-acne. Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties help pacify acne-prone skin, while salicylic acid elements gently exfoliate, promoting skin-cell turnover.
It’s hydrating. Beyond its water content and the induced production of hyaluronic acid, its natural sugars - mucopolysaccharides - work hard to retain the moisture delivered to the skin.

An effective humectant that draws water to the skin and prevents it from evaporating.
It mimic’s some of the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factors, all of which degrade and require replenishment as we age.
It improves skin barrier function and skin mechanical properties. It protects against irritants. It accelerates the wound healing process. It improves skin resiliency. It even has mild antimicrobial properties.
