KEY INGREDIENTS & WHY THEY WORK
Ashwagandha // Ashwagandha is a highly revered herb in the Ayurvedic pharmacopoeia. Sought after for its powerful adaptogenic properties, it strengthens the body's overall resilience to stress. It's known to be a potent antioxidant that protects against cellular damage caused by free radicals. Our ashwagandha root is certified organic and sourced from India.
Tulsi essential oil // The star essential oil in our essential oil blend, tulsi is also known as holy basil and is also a revered herb in the Ayurvedic pharmacopoeia. The essential oil offers adaptogenic properties and its aroma conjures a similar aromatic experience to the warming scents of cinnamon, peppermint, clove, and basil. It is considered to be a balancing and grounding herb. The essential oil found in the leaves has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and adaptogenic properties — both stimulating or sedative, depending on what your body needs. Our tulsi essential oil is sourced from India, is made from organically grown plants, and is GC/MS tested.
Lavender essential oil // We use pure essential oil of the plant Lavandula Augustifolia. The oil of this particular species of lavender is especially balancing and healing to the nervous system. Topically, it has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and general skin healing properties. Our Lavender essential oil is certified organic and GC/MS tested.
Evening Primrose oil // Evening primrose is a small yellow wildflower that only opens in the evening. The oil is pressed from the seeds and has soothing and emollient properties that make it an excellent moisturizer. It is a good source of omega 6, Vitamin E and is high in GLA (gamma linolenic acid) which promotes healthy, hydrated skin. Evening primrose oil is often recommended to use topically for skin ailments such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. Our evening primrose oil is certified organic, virgin, and contains a minimum of 10% GLA.
Olive Oil // A fatty acid rich oil that is pressed from the fruit of the olive tree. It works well to rehydrate dry skin and is high in oleic acid, palmitic and linoleic acid which all help seal in moisture and improve skin’s overall barrier functions. Our olive oil is extra virgin and certified organic.
Sunflower Oil // This lightweight, fast-absorbing oil is rich in linoleic acid, Vitamin E and squalene. It has been used topically to treat essential fatty-acid deficiencies and to help maintain the skin barrier and decrease transepidermal water loss. Several studies have also suggested that sunflower seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties. Our sunflower oil is certified organic.
Vitamin E // Vitamin E is made up of a group of eight compounds called Tocopherols. Tocopherol is a fat-soluble antioxidant that prevents oxidative stressors from damaging cells by removing free radicals. These oxidative stressors can either be from daily sun exposure or pollution. According to studies , when applied topically, Vitamin E has been shown to reduce redness and UVB-induced skin damage.
