Wether you are talking about the ancient Aztecs, ancient Chinese, ancient Indians or ancient Aborigines – since the dawn of civilization, people have turned to the power of plants for their healing purposes, but one folk medicine in particular seems more popular than ever: essential oils.

Today, there’s renewed interest in using essentials oils in skincare products due to the fact that it is a natural product, not tested on animals, alcohol free and free of chemicals often found in modern-day synthetically made or laboratory prepared skincare products.  

No longer niche, these little vials of plant essence are a billion-dollar industry, favoured by celebrities and grandmas alike, all in the pursuit to find “that” Silver bullet anti-aging serum or skin renewal cream.

When essential oils are applied to your skin, the compounds are absorbed deep down into your skin from where they do the work they have been doing best for centuries.

But wait – what is “essential oils”, where do they come from and how do the get “made”?

Our anti-aging face serum, aftershave serum and hand serum is honest and simple. We were once again able to successfully blend ancient oils with modern science giving your skin youthful radiance, radiance and plumpness and giving you the confidence to age gracefully. Using our multi-generational approach to product formulations our serums pack a mean push and are full of:

  • Anti-microbial ingredients
  • Anti-inflammatory constituents 
  • Anti-oxidants
  • Vit C, E and A
  • Omega 6 & 7
  • Natural collagen production stimulants

Question Time!

What is the “special ingredient” in both our face serum and aftershave serum?

Squalane! What makes Squalane so special? Squalene (with an “e”) is a lipid produced naturally by your own skin cells. Unfortunately, the amount of squalene your body produces declines with age. Peak production of this natural moisturizer occurs in the teen years, with production slowing down in your 20s or 30s.

It is import to add Squalane oil to your skincare routine as it balances oil production, providing just enough moisture to keep the skin clear and healthy. Squalane oil too has powerful anti-aging properties and will help the skin age gracefully. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory benefits help with skin conditions such as acne and eczema.

Why is the colour of my serum often different from a previous bottle of serum I bought? 

The constituent makeup of essential oils will vary from batch to batch, as they are drawn from plants that vary from country to country, field to field and even within the same plant from morning to evening. The major components will always be there, but the relative concentration will vary.
