Hero Ingredient - Rosehip OilRosehip Oil is beneficial to the skin as 80% of its constituents are essential fatty acids, namely oleic acid, linoleic acid and linolenic acid. They are known as ‘essential’ fatty acids because our skin is not able to reproduce them yet they help to nourish and maintain skin health. Rosehip Oil also contains Vitamins A and C. It is a rejuvenating oil that helps to soothe and heal scars, burns and recurring dry skin complaints.
Hero Ingredient - Manuka HoneySome Manuka Honey has a ‘Unique Manuka Factor’ which refers to its level of antibacterial activity. This factor provides an additional potent anti-bacterial action on top of the usual antibacterial abilities of all honeys. It has also been shown to diffuse deeper into skin tissues.
Manuka Honey is tested for its level of activity and issued with a number. So a rating of 10 indicates the same level of antiseptic potency of a 10% solution of Phenol (Carbolic Disinfectant). The higher the rating, the higher the activity level is, and therefore the greater the healing ability. All Manuka Honey included in our products has an activity rating of 16+.In addition to its antibacterial abilities Manuka honey has been shown to be deeply penetrating and hygroscopic (attracts moisture to it), and therefore, very hydrating. It has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties and has demonstrated the ability to accelerate tissue repair, aiding in skin repair and the reduction of scarring.
