BARRIER BUILDING INGREDIENTS
Moisturisers are necessary to hydrate the skin and to maintain the skin's barrier function. The usual everyday moisturiser is usually an emulsion, a mix of water, oil and humectant, held together by an emulsifier, heated to 75 degrees and mixed + preservatives when applied to the skin the water evaporates leaving a thin layer of oily ingredients to create a protective and moisturising barrier.
We prefer to use a cold process method when creating our moisturisers, keeping all the heat sensitive, unrefined raw botanical ingredients protected.
Our Barrier Building moisturiser, specifically formulated for skin barrier protection uses skin identical phospholipids creating a phospholipid bilayer to protect the skin from epidermal water loss. (Available soon)
Our oil blends and Face oil elixirs are truly potent concentrations of plant goodness that contain barrier building essential fatty acids that can also be used as a moisturiser,
a little dab of Smooth Cleanser and a squirt of oil Elixir and a splash of water, you have your own individual blend to suit your need; you’ll be amazed at the results
RITUALS OVER ROUTINES
