Our Ingredients

A Partial List of Plant Constituents in Our Products

Vetiver

Unlike other grasses whose roots grow horizontally, the roots of vetiver grass dig deep into the earth producing sharp edged leaves, tiny flowers, and aromatic roots that are rich in a wide palette of naturally occurring healing sesquiterpines. The thick amber oil is extracted from the root via a steam distillation process. Vetiver oil speeds up the eradication of scars, promoting the growth of new skin cells, while helping skin to appear smoother and more uniformed.

Tamanu

Indigenous to tropical Southeast Asia, tamanu trees are grown in Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, and the Polynesian islands. The tree blooms twice annually with fragrant, white, flowers, which later yield clusters of yellow round fruit. Within the fruits contain an embedded nut which is the dried in the sun for two months until it turns sticky, with a dark, thick, rich oil. This sticky oil is then cold pressed to yield a potent anti inflammatory that aids our skin in the quick healing of wounds, excema, and acne. It does so effectively by nourishing and accelerating the skins ability to regenerate new skin cells quickly.

It takes 100 kilograms of tamanu fruit, the amount that one tree produces annually, to yield just 5 kilograms of cold pressed oil.
