(We always have some new formulations brewing in our lab kitchen, so over a period of 4 months we had this particular moisturiser tested by a group of lovely ladies and gentlemen. We are so pleased that we had generally fantastic feedback ranging from 'fabulous on my irritated skin', 'no more flakey patches' to 'halluluja, finally a product that doesn't sting and cause breakouts'. These results are the single most important reason to launch a product and to make sure it gets received well. A big thank you you to all the participating testers!).

Kukui Nut Oil
The kukui nut tree was first brought to Hawaii by early Polynesian settlers. It quickly adapted, and is now Hawaiis official state tree. Kukui means ‘enlightenment' in Hawaiian. The common name is candlenut, as the ancient Hawaiians used the nuts for light, burning them on stone lamps. Kukui nut oil was and still is used in skin care and traditional massage, protecting infants from sun, salt and all weather conditions. It gives immediate relief to really dry skin and is especially suited for very sensitive skin. Kukui nut oil is rich in Vitamin A, C and E and is also anti-inflammatory. It helps alleviate skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema and rosacea and is easily absorbed into the skin.
Shea Butter is rich in vitamins, plant sterols, vitamins and softens, protects against drying and nourishes the skin. It prevents moisture loss, protects against the elements and helps renew cracked, aged and damaged skin and can help with soreness, skin rashes and itching, acne, sunburn, scars. Shea butter gets to work deep in the skin and leaves it feeling soft, smooth and refreshed.
Aloe Vera has been used for centuries and it is more popular today than ever. It is cultivated around the world as a crop for its colourless jelly-like leaf parenchyma known as 'aloe gel'. It is used for a variety of purposes in food, food supplements, herbal remedies and cosmetics. Aloe vera leaf parenchyma (aloe gel) may be effective when used on the skin against psoriasis, burns, frostbite, and sores caused by the Herpes simplex virus.
Evening Primrose Oil was used by the North American Indian medicine men to make an infusion for healing wounds. Where evening primrose oil is used as a carrier medium for essential oils, it is important to note that it is an exceptionally fine textured oil which is easily absorbed, with high levels of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). It has superb moisturising properties and is indicated as being effective in helping with eczema, psoriasis, reddened skin and very quickly restores the skins barrier function.
Oat Extract is a superior soothing ingredient for sensitive, dry, flaky skin and atopic skin conditions. It is known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, and moisturising characteristics with a high linoleic acid content. Phospholipids contained in Oat Extract support the barrier function helping to keep the skin in healthy condition.
Alpha Bisabolol is the major active component of Chamomile. It has long been used in cosmetics for its anti-inflammatory, healing & soothing, anti-microbial properties and stimulating collagen production. It is particularly suited for sensitive skin where it protects from daily stress and the effects of pollution. Hyperpigmentation is reduced as Bisabolol helps to inhibit melanin production which is responsible for age spots.
Vitamin A promotes enzyime activity in the skin, counteracts inflammations and protects from the damage caused by free radicals and in this way helps to prevent skin disorders. It can regenerate skin prematurely aged by photodamage.
