Garcinia indica - Kokum Butter
Kokum butter is an oil derived from the seeds of a fruit-bearing tree called the kokum tree, is rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E and harbours antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Kokum butter is non-comedogenic (meaning it doesn’t block your pores). But, it’s also a natural humectant - which means it attracts and retains the moisture in the air nearby by drawing water vapor to the surface of the skin. Traditionally, Kokum butter has been used traditionally to treat infections, digestive disorders, and even arthritis.
Leptospermum scoparium - Manuka Oil (New Zealand )
The Manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium) is native to New Zealand. It’s been used for centuries in traditional medicine. Rongoa Māori (traditional Māori healing system) uses the oil of the manuka tree as an antiseptic, and seeds, bark and leaves to treat diarrhoea, pain, inflammation, wounds and burns
Kunzea ericoides - Kanuka Oil (New Zealand)
Kanuka oil is quite similar to that of manuka oil. However, kanuka oil does not contain triketones, and exhibits much higher levels of alpha-pinene. Both Kanuka and Manuka essential oils are both skin nourishing and calming oils that possess anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties, which aids in the treatment of inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, sunburns, insect bites and slight burns.
Lavandula angustifolia - New Zealand Lavender Oil
Lavender has been used for thousands of years for its healing, antiseptic and sedative properties. Lavender oil is used to treat various skin disorders such as acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammations. It heals wounds, cuts, burns and sunburns rapidly as it aids in the formation of scar tissues. Lavender oil is used to treat eczema. It is also effective against insect bites. The oil is also used to repel mosquitoes and moths.
