Marshmallow root extract
Marshmallow root has excellent cooling and moisturising properties. It stimulates the skin cells to improve tissue regeneration. Marshmallow root contains natural hydrators that help promote the repair of the skin’s barrier. Marshmallow root is also high in mucilaginous polysaccharides which soften and moisturise the skin. They create a protective coating which soothes and protects irritated, dry, inflamed and sensitive skin. Marshmallow root stimulates the skin cells to improve tissue regeneration. The anti-inflammatory properties of marshmallow root have also been shown to be helpful in treating eczema.
Gotu Kola Extract
Gotu kola is known for its healing and anti-ageing benefits. It’s potent combination of amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids and phytochemicals is everything the skin needs to fight off the signs of ageing and to protect itself from environmental stressors. Gotu kola is rich in triternene saponins, a compound that helps keep skin tighter and firmer, and is also rich in antioxidants which protect against damage from free radicals. Gotu Kola promotes the formation of collagen and improves blood circulation. This helps the skin to maintain its elasticity and speeds up skin repair.
Shea Butter contains high concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins which help combat free radical damage. It promotes cellular regeneration and is a natural anti-inflammatory. This encourages skin healing, and boosts the protective layer of the skin. It helps to reduce stretchmarks and wrinkles, and eases eczema, psoriasis, rashes, and chapped skin. Shea Butter locks in water, so it really helps dry and damaged skin – it hydrates, moisturises, softens and smoothes.
Colloidal Oatmeal is a natural anti-irritant, and is perfect for very dry, irritated and sensitive skin. This is helpful for people who suffer with rosacea and eczema. Colloidal Oatmeal contains anti-inflammatory Vitamin E, cleansing Saponins, and anti-fungal Avenacin compounds, and is a fabulous emollient that soothes irritation and redness and relieves itchiness. The proteins in Colloidal Oatmeal stick to the skin improving its barrier function, and it attracts moisture to the skin’s surface before locking it in, creating deep and long-lasting hydration.
