OUR INGREDIENTS

Do you know that even when we rinse the products off, it’s ingredients get absorbed directly into our Ecosystem?

Knowing that a single shower could result in 100,000 microbeads entering the water system, we really ensure that along with being beneficial for the skin, the ingredients we use do not pollute our water and marine life when flushed down the drains.

Moreover, we really believe in complete transparency & want to help consumers make informed decisions about what goes on their skin and into the environment. Therefore, we decode all our ingredients into their common names along with their function and origin on our website. We understand that comprehending INCI List (scientific names) into their common names can be confusing, non-transparent and time-consuming.

 

We design our products keeping the health of our skin and planet in mind

Function/Properties

Carrot seed oil is rich in beta-carotene and Vitamin A. It is believed to stimulate cell renewal, repair and tone the skin, increase elasticity and reduce the appearance of scars & wrinkles. Promote a clearer, brighter, evenly toned complexion. It is one of the best oils for dry and mature skin. We utilise left-over raw materials by collecting lots of discarded carrots from local suppliers.

The upcycled carrots are grown and harvested in the UK, but a large proportion are rejected as they don’t meet the specification for food use. We rescue the nutrient-rich seeds from going to waste and landfill. And then cold-press them into the beautiful antioxidant rich oil for use in our formulation.

According to research, squalane also has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce redness and swelling.
