Key ingredients and their function:
Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Distillate – Extracts of this delicate flower may be used on all skin types but are often included in products for dry, sensitive and mature skin. Containing a complex array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, rose essential oil has excellent emollient properties for moisturizing dry skin; it also offers antiseptic and astringent properties to treat acne skin, as well as anti-inflammatory properties that help treat redness and inflammation. Rose oil can also help refine skin texture, controlling skin diseases such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. Rose essential oil can help heal wounds, as inhaling it inhibits water loss in the skin and lowers the concentration of cortisol (a stress hormone) in the body.
Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed – Possesses strong antiseptic, germicidal, antibacterial, fungicidal and anti-viral properties and also acts as an antioxidant. Its antibacterial property protects against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria including Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus Aureus. Its fungicidal property protects against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus niger.
Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract – Antioxidant, astringent, soothes and heals skin.
Titanium Dioxide- is found in the majority of physical sunscreens because of its high refractive index, its strong UV light absorbing capabilities and its resistance to discolouration under ultraviolet light. This advantage enhances its stability and ability to protect the skin from ultraviolet light. Sunscreens designed for infants or people with sensitive skin are often based on titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide, as these mineral UV blockers are believed to cause less skin irritation than other UV absorbing chemicals.
Zinc Oxide-Broad spectrum protection from, UVA and UVB exposure.
