Why it works
Squalane is a gentle and non-comedogenic but highly effective anti-oxidant which helps to minimize pigmentation and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Almond oil is used to soothe and condition the skin by replenishing natural skin oils lost during cleansing.
Elderberry is an anti-oxidant with anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory activity. Its bioflavonoids help to prevent wrinkles, reduce pigmentation, and increase collagen production. Elderberry also contains high levels of vitamins A, B6, E, and C.
Tulsi, also known as holy basil, is known for its antiseptic and soothing qualities, and is frequently used in acne treatments.
Turmeric contains curcumin, which has repeatedly been shown in scientific studies to possess anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidative properties. It is a key ingredient in many acne and facial treatments.
Rose oil tones the skin. Rosewater, which is the distilled essence of rose petals, is not only astringent, but also has anti-inflammatory and anti-septic properties. The powder of dried and crushed rose petals also provides an astringent effect.
Neem has been used for centuries to cleanse and disinfect the skin. It is traditionally used as an extremely effective acne treatment and to tone the skin.
Sandalwood has long been prized for its anti-septic, soothing, and moisturizing properties.
