The Quality Of Slow
We believe that creating something truly special takes time. Our unique processing methods slowly infuse the plant’s broad-spectrum of nutrition using minimal-to-no heat; this allows us to work with rare natural ingredients in a way that maintains their efficacy and integrity, delivering nutrients to your skin in their rawest, most active form.
Our ingredients are sourced from producers and growers who have a shared responsibility to the planet. We actively work with our local suppliers and partners on our environmental objectives and are always developing new ways to minimise our ecological impact.
We use 100% recycled medical-grade amber glass jars and bottles to protect against UV light and eliminate the need for harsh preservatives. Glass is infinitely recyclable. We use a natural uncoated FSC-certified paper stock across all our inserts and transport our products in minimalist packaging made from natural, fully recyclable materials.
more with less
Our skincare philosophy centres on offering multi-correctional, mixable formulations, with the belief that if one product can deliver a whole host of benefits, fewer products are then needed, fewer are then produced, and less of our precious natural resources are used. We use minimal-to-no water in our formulations and instead focus on concentrated high-performance ingredients proven to deliver results. This focus on cleaner, more active and less irritating formulations is not only better for your skin, but better for the planet, too.
Only the finest
We sustainably source more than 130 region-specific ingredients from across the globe — including 89 high-performance bioactive botanicals — each selected for their purity and unique benefit to the skin. With a focus on quality over quantity, this means no mass-produced ingredients — only the finest raw materials from the earth.
Cruelty-Free, Plant-Based, & Free-From Nasties
All of our products are 100% vegan, not tested on animals, and contain no animal derived ingredients. We are committed to ensuring each product is free from toxic and hazardous ingredients including genetically modified ingredients (GMO), sulphates, parabens, synthetic fragrances and colours, glycols, silicones, PEGs and phthalates.
We believe we can all make a difference, which is why with a passion to protect our precious natural environment we set out to create Project Wild, where every product purchased goes towards supporting and shaping initiatives around the preservation of the natural world. For every product sold, we donate to WILD, who are working to help protect and conserve the wonders of the natural world and the wildlife that inhabit them
Ethanol Ethanol is a proven aid to preventing transmission of infectious agents and widely accepted as one of the most important infection control measures to prevent infectious disease transmission. The antimicrobial activity of ethanol can be attributed to its ability to denature and coagulate proteins. The microorganism’s cells are then lysed, and their cellular metabolism is disrupted. The activity is broad and immediate. Ethanol [the most common alcohol sanitising ingredient], appears to be the most effective against viruses.
D-Panthenol D-Panthenol is the provitamin—a precursor, or substance that the body can convert into a specific vitamin—for B5. When panthenol is applied topically, it’s quickly converted into vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid. B5 binds to and holds water effectively, moisturising the skin and helping it maintain softness and elasticity. Panthenol has also been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect and to boost skin barrier function.
Vegetable Glyerin Glycerin is hygroscopic — meaning it can draw moisture from the air around us and help keep that moisture in skin, thus minimising trans epidermal water loss [due to evaporation]. Research has shown that glycerin mimics what’s known as skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF), which is why it’s compatible with all skin types, of all ages. Replenishing skin’s NMF is important because it becomes depleted as we age, are subject to environmental exposure, and use irritating ingredients.
Sandalwood Sandalwood is very mild but still has a powerful effect on the skin. Due to its antiseptic properties it prevents rashes, heals itching and inflammation, cools and soothes skin and moisturises and tones the skin with mild astringent action. In aromatherapy, inhaling the aroma of sandalwood oil or absorbing it through the skin is thought to transmit messages to parts of the brain involved in controlling emotions, known as the limbic system. These messages are believed to affect both an emotional and physiological response.
Carrot Seed The benefits of carrot seed oil include antifungal and antibacterial qualities, due to the bioflavonoids it contains. Rich in vitamins A, C, B1, B2 and various essential fatty acids, carrot seed is incredibly skin-repairing to dry and damaged skin. It also contains a large amount of vitamin E, which is great for adding and retaining moisture in the skin.
Patchouli Oil Patchouli oil, which contains several mono- and sesquiterpenoids, alkaloids, and flavonoids, is thought to possess significant anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities.In fact, it is reputed to impart antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic effects, and is also known to protect the skin barrier function. Studies have found that patchouli oil exerts significant antibacterial activity against staphylococcus bacteria. Patchouli is commonly used in aromatherapy for its ability to calm depression. It encourages the release of serotonin and dopamine; two hormones which ease feelings of anger and anxiety.
Lavender Along with the other benefits commonly found in botanical ingredients [anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial], lavender is unique in its proven ability to boost blood circulation. This enables more brightening oxygen and nutrients to reach the skin’s surface. It can also protect and promote the skin’s natural barrier, plus balance its pH levels. Aromatically, this oil, rich in esters and alcohols, is useful for when fighting depression as well as anxiety and stress, helping to relax the mind, proving to be interesting in its application at a time of increased tension.
Clove Bud Clove owes its medicinal benefits to its antimicrobial, anti-fungal, antiviral and stimulating properties, and is one of the richest sources of antioxidants. Clove oil contains a chemical called eugenol that acts as an antiseptic and antibacterial agent. With the help of these properties it can treat cuts and wounds and fight against fungal infections. Clove bud essential oil is used in aromatherapy to stimulate circulation and arousal of the mind and body allowing you to achieve mental clarity.
Bergamot Thanks to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, bergamot is a natural cleanser. It can help to tone the skin, soothe skin irritation, and heal cuts and scars. Bergamot is also rich in polyphenols that have strong antioxidant effects to help protect the skin from free radical damage. Aromatically, bergamot is one of the best oils to support the central nervous system — it’s known to be calming to the spirit.
