Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Almond Oil and Coconut Oil – These are packed full of vitamins, essential fatty acids, proteins, amino acids, lecithin and antioxidants which are essential for skin regeneration and maintaining youthful skin.Natural Vitamin E Oil – Scientific studies have shown that topically applied vitamin E has numerous skin care benefits.It is a very effective antioxidant and protects the skin from environmental pollution and oxidative stress.It has a protecting action against UV radiation –  although it cannot be classed as a sunscreen. It is an excellent moisturiser.It contains a powerful anti-inflammatory action which prevents premature ageing (inflammatory conditions in the skin are a leading cause of skin ageing).It also has excellent wound healing properties.Argan Oil – This is nutrient rich and contains essential fatty acids, vitamin E, polyphenols, carotenoids, ferulic acid and triterpenoids.These components are important in making the body healthy, particularly the skin.The fatty acids help restore the skin’s integrity and natural barrier, and the antioxidants protect and reverse the effects of environmental damage on the skin.Ferulic acid in argan oil helps neutralise free radicals and protect the skin from UV damage.Moreover, because of the presence of triterpenoids that protect from outside elements, argan oil can keep the skin well-hydrated, smooth and increase elasticity.Extensive scientific research has revealed that argan oil restores the skin’s water-lipid layer.It also increases the amount of nutrients and oxygen in the skin cell, neutralises free radicals, and protects connective tissue.Ferulic acid is the most abundant phenolic compound found in argan oil.A study in 2004 showed it to be more effective at fighting free radicals than vitamin E, vitamin A or vitamin C.A more recent study at Duke showed that when ferulic acid was added to a mix of vitamin C & E, it doubled the already impressive 4-fold UV protective qualities of the vitamins to an amazing 8-fold.Our formula contains both vitamin C (rosehip oil) and vitamin E. This super antioxidant has even been found to increase its antioxidant activity when exposed to UV rays.Not only can it help protect your skin from future damage, but also help heal damage from the past.Those acids are a great tool in fighting photo ageing. They are, in fact, active antioxidant compounds that are perfect UV scavengers.A study published in a 2009 issue of “Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry” studied the effects of applying different levels of polyphenols on the skin.Participants applied either 92 or 20 percent tea polysaccharides or 98 percent polyphenols on their skin.After frequent application, participants were measured for moisture absorption, retention, sunscreen and building new skin cells.The results found that the polyphenols applied to the skin protected it against ultraviolet radiation and enhanced skin cell growth.Argan oil contains phytosterols, which lend anti-ageing benefits by promoting new collagen production that is lost from sun exposure and ageing.One of the contributing factors in the ageing of the skin is the breakdown and loss of collagen (the main component in connective skin tissue) and sun exposure is a major contributor to the problem.As the body ages, it is not able to produce collagen as it once did.The National Institutes of Health reports on a study out of Germany in which various topical preparations were tested on skin for 10 days.The topical treatment that showed anti-ageing benefits to the skin was the one that contained phytosterols and other natural fats.It is reported that phytosterols not only stopped the slow-down of collagen production that can be caused by the sun, it actually encouraged new collagen production.Kiwi Seed Oil – Studies have shown this contains among the highest levels of Omega-3 stearidonic acid of any oil.It is also rich in other essential fatty acids such as omega 6 gamma linolenic acid, tocotrienols, vitamins C, A and E and minerals.Quercitrin and kaempferol 3-O-rhamnoside are main components of kiwi fruit seed oil.They are anti-inflammatory and by reducing inflammation they reduce the effects of ageing (ageing skin is caused by inflammation).Results from clinical trials show that when applied topically, vitamin C promotes collagen formation and mitigates the effects of free radicals, helping to maintain firm and youthful skin.It possesses excellent healing, skin balancing and elasticity restoring qualities. It is a very light oil that nourishes the skin from within and rebuilds its elasticity over time.Skin studies have shown that it improves skin condition & protects against moisture loss.Kiwi seed oil is excellent for treating sensitive and oily and large-pored skin as it helps to rebalance the skin.It is useful in the repair of damaged skin tissue, varicose veins and skin overexposed to sunlight, and reducing or healing fine lines around the eyes, wrinkles and scars.Gamma Linolenic Acid (Omega 6) – Healthy skin depends on adequate amounts of lipid, in particular certain polyunsaturated fatty acids called essential fatty acids (EFAs), for moisture, suppleness and smoothness as well as to prevent skin disorders.The most important polyunsaturated fatty acids for maintenance of healthy skin and for the alleviation of skin disorders are the essential fatty acids of the omega-6 family, namely linoleic acid (LA) and GLA.Both LA and GLA are critical for healthy skin since they are structural components of cell membranes where they ensure fluidity and stability.The proper functioning of the cells of the skin depend upon healthy membranes since they act as “gate-keepers” which maintains epidermal barrier function that keeps moisture locked in while keeping toxins out.This reduces the irritation caused by noxious substances.Thus, essential fatty acids help to ensure the integrity of the epidermal layer of the skin, maintain the skin water barrier system and regulate moisture loss.GLA is also the precursor for potent, short-lived, hormone-like compounds called eicosanoids, such as prostaglandin E1, which helps modulate normal skin physiologic processes by improving blood flow and reducing inflammation, as well as reducing water loss.Inflammation is one of the main causes of skin ageing.Stearidonic Acid (Omega 3) – Stearidonic acid reduces skin inflammation by suppressing the release of arachidonic acid, amongst other cell activities.Therefore by reducing skin inflammation you will reduce the skin ageing process. other cell activities.Rosehip Oil – This has been clinically proven to improve the skins appearance by regenerating skin cells.It is rich in topical trans-retinoic acid (vitamin A) and vitamin C and is used by dermatologists to increase collagen production in the dermis.Dermatologists say retinoic acid is the ‘Gold Standard’ in anti-ageing skin care.Research published in the Journal of Dermatological Science reported that treatment with retinoic acid restored the elastic fibres that keep skin taut and reduced the appearance of wrinkles.

Succumb to the awesome skin care benefits of argan oil and experience for yourself how this nutrient rich exotic oil from Morocco will rejuvenate your skin.

It will protect and moisturise your skin, reduce visible signs of ageing and tackle the appearance of wrinkles caused by stress, sun and wind.

Used for centuries in Morocco, argan oil is produced from the kernels of the Argan tree, endemic to Morocco, that is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties.

Our organic argan oil is a cold, first pressed oil, produced using a mixture of traditional and modern techniques to ensure a high quality product. No chemicals are used in the process.

All argan oil sold today is produced by a women’s cooperative that shares the profits among the local women of the Berber tribe.

The cooperative has established an ecosystem reforestation project so that the supply of argan oil will not run out and the income that is currently supporting the women will not disappear.

The money is providing health care and education to the local women, and supporting the entire community as a whole.

Hailing from the land of the Maori, kiwi seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins C, A and E and other nutrients and minerals.

Essential fatty acids will restore moisture to your skin, increases suppleness and regenerate your skin cells.

Healthy skin depends on an adequate amount of essentially fatty acids and by using this cream you will ensure your skin has sufficient amounts. Vitamin C will help combat collagen degradation and oxidative stress.

It is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen and a potent antioxidant that will help rejuvenate any aged and photo-damaged skin you may have, helping to maintain the firmness and youthfulness of your skin.

Kiwi seed oil also reduces inflammation. Since inflammation is one of the main causes of skin ageing, by reducing it you will reduce the ageing process.

Extracted from the seeds of wild rose bushes predominately from Chile, rosehip oil is rich in topical trans-retinoic acid (vitamin A) and vitamin C and is the dermatologists ‘Gold Standard’ in anti-ageing skin care.

It will restore the elastic fibres that keep your skin taut and reduce the appearance of any wrinkles you may have.
