      Prickly Pear Oil
      The Prickly Pear is a member of the cactus family, it can thrive through long droughts, producing fruit that contains small black seeds. Inside the delicious fruits of the prickly pear are seeds that contain the finest quality, precious oil carrying different types of fatty acids, phenols, and nutrients such as vitamin E, vitamin K, phytosterols, and antioxidants. This oil is extremely hydrating and skin softening. 

      Blue Spirulina
      One of the most nutritious ingredients on the planet is Spirulina. Spirulina is a blue-green algae (found in both fresh and saltwater) or cyanobacteria, which is a type of bacteria that lives in water; they get their energy through photosynthesis. 
      Spirulina is highly nutritious, it contains 8 essential amino acids, Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin B and Iron. It is also high in protein, which is necessary for cell repair and growth. That combined with being a rich source of antioxidants makes spirulina highly effective in the fight against free radicals.
      On top of that, Spirulina contains a rare fatty acid known as gamma-linolenic acid (known to promote the structural integrity of skin and decrease skin inflammation).

      Referred to by some as the Everlasting or Immortal Flower, the Helichrysum plant offers several benefits to the skin. With rejuvenating and restorative properties, Helichrysum oil has many uses, including reducing the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles thus providing a soothing sensation for the skin. Helichrysum essential oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties that may be useful in healing skin. 

      Baobab Oil
      Baobab is our hero ingredient as it is found in most of our products.
      Baobab (native to Africa) is often referred to as the “tree of life”. The powerful health and skincare benefits of baobab oil have been known and used by communities in Africa for centuries.
      Pressed from the seeds of the baobab tree, baobab oil is a luxurious (plant-based), nutrient-rich oil. Baobab oil is a one-ingredient powerhouse! It is an excellent moisturiser and works to improve skin elasticity – naturally. Rich in vitamins A, D, E and F, it also helps to restore the skin’s natural glow.
      Baobab oil is ideal to use on the skin because of its lightweight, smooth texture that absorbs quickly and isn’t greasy.

    Miracle balm

    This balm heals my dermatitis like nothing else. It is incredible. Applied in the evening, kept on overnight and the area was 90% healed the next morning.

    The Balm

    The balm is amazing. I had some really bad pimples worrying me at age 46 on my cheek.. I think perimenopause related.. felt like I was a teenager again :) ..after using the balm daily for a few days they seemed to have healed significantly.. im smiling now!

    Use during pregnancy

    The widely provided advice to me was that i must make sure i am using tissue oil while i’m pregnant. Initially I started of with that but with summer that came around i felt like i was overheating with the oil. Thankfully I remembered I had purchased The Balm. I’ve been using it for 3 months now on my bump, nipple area and butt and could not be more happier! Unlike the tissue oil i felt protected and cool at the same time. My belly hasn’t got any stretch marks so far- i’m due in two weeks. And i did not experience any itchy skin. By the evening my skin still feels soft and silky.
