Buriti Oil

born out of the Amazon rainforest

Buriti oil is naturally rich in beta-carotene, with 5 times more of it than carrot oil. This robust antioxidant is known for cell renewal and skin elasticity, making it a secret weapon for aging. Its rich, unsaturated fatty acids also help to rebuild and moisturize skin cells at any age.

Buriti means "tree of life" in Brazil. No wonder it has the innate ability to revitalize sun-damaged skin, protect against free radical damage, and quench our skin cells.

Kakadu Plum

born in open woodland across Northern Australia

Kakadu plum extract brings both a high concentration of vitamin C and soothing anti-fungal properties to the table. This fruit’s natural antioxidants get to work quickly by helping the skin flush out toxins. So, while it works for all skin types, it’s most loved by blemish-prone skin.

These benefits have been researched and associated with the treatment of acne scars, anti-fungal issues, wrinkles, dryness, eczema, stretch marks, and ingrown hairs. It’s undeniably earned the nickname “green gold”.

Bakuchi has been called upon to tackle tough skin issues from vitiligo to eruptions to eczema and even dermatitis and ringworm. It comes from the seeds and leaves of the plant informally known as babchi. With a key role in ayurvedic medicine, it’s been touted as a natural take on alternative to retinol.

While it’s not a direct retinol substitute, bakuchi has been shown to have soothing, anti-aging, and tone-improving properties.

tetrapeptide molecule watercolor


In essence, peptides serve as the building blocks of the skin’s fundamental protein (think collagen or elastin). In your skincare routine, peptides can lead to firmer, fresher skin.

While peptides come from the body, most that you’ll find in skincare products are synthetically made. But, not all are created equal. One we love is diaminopropionyl tripeptide. This outstanding, newfangled peptide has been shown to prevent UV damage, minimizing the effects of aging by reversing and preventing skin cell damage inflicted by our harsh climates.

Choose me for UV damage repair and anti-aging. Found in Deep Hydration. Gel Balm.

Polyphenols are micronutrients that serve as tenacious antioxidants. They’re found in natural sources including peanuts, mulberry, knotweed, and wine, just to name a few.

Plus, polyphenols are fast-acting and can produce visible results in a matter of weeks, because who needs patience as a virtue?
