How we formulate our natural skin care
When we formulate products we start with our key values – the ingredient must be natural and effective. We select a large group of natural ingredients of different types (e.g. oils, peptides, antioxidants, vitamins etc). Then we scrutinise each and everyone to see what research there is and how robust it is. The effect of an ingredient should be well documented in peer review articles to be selected for the second round.
When the vetting is complete we have a short list of ingredients. This is when the creative aspect of formulating starts. It is like creating a beautiful dessert. What oils will work together to give the desired texture? Which combination of active ingredients will meet the functional criteria? What combination of essential oils will give an indulgent yet edgy scent? We mix and try different combinations until we find the optimal formulations to offer you
