Ingredients used in our Cacao Cleanser are shown to:
Tamanu: Tamanu Oil comes from the kernel of the nut of the fruit of the Tamanu Tree. This oil is precious, as it takes about 100 kilograms of fruit to create just 5 kilograms of cold pressed oil. This is the amount the tree produces annually. This oil is amazing for sensitive skin, but is an amazing anti-aging oil as well as it helps promote healthy, younger looking skin. It is rich in antioxidants which protect the skin against environmental stressors & also stimulate the regeneration of new skin cells as it speeds up the healing of wounds and scars. Tamanu is also a great source of fatty acids including, but not limited to, linoleic & oleic which help nourish, plump & smooth the appearance of the skin.
Camellia: Camellia Seed Oil is also known as Tea Seed Oil. The seeds of the Tea plant undergo a cold pressing to extract the concentrated oil. Thus, Camellia Oil benefits from many of the same antioxidant compounds as tea, but also has an extremely high level of unsaturated fats as well as other minerals & nutrients. This benefits of this oil are attributed to its high levels of oleic acid, linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, stearic acid, Vitamin E, calcium, potassium, triterpenes, saponins & squalene. Its beneficial components help it to smooth skin as it locks in moisture. It can also minimize the appearance of wrinkles & keep your skin feeling young & healthy. It is very strengthening & conditioning when used on hair.
Macadamia: Macadamia Oil is a thick oil but readily absorbed in the skin. It infuses skin with moisture & firms it while giving skin a youthful glow. It is rich in palmitoleic acid, an acid that naturally occurs in skin, but decreases as you age contributing to the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. Macadamia Oil is also high in monounsaturated fatty acids, including oleic acid. These acids have anti-inflammatory properties as well as very moisturizing, regenerating & softening to the skin.
Cacao: Having one of the highest measured antioxidant capacities, Cacao helps protect & repair the skin from damage & premature aging. As a potent anti-inflammatory, it soothes redness & blemishes, improving the skin's complexion. It contains healthy omega-6 fatty acids which gives the skin a healthy dose of soothing rejuvenation. It also increases circulation which stimulates new blood flow to the surface of the skin, keeping it healthy & glowing. A potent skin healer.
