Vitamin A (0.1% Retinal)
A+ for great skin
In sunny South Africa, pigmentation ranks very high as a skin concern. Our warm climate means lots of time spent in the sun - the result: issues with UV damage and pigmentation. Fortunately, Vitamin A can help! It inhibits the melanin-producing enzyme tyrosinase, interferes with pigment transfer and speeds up cell turnover rate through potent exfoliation.
Ancestral beauty in a nutshell
We love this lightweight, golden oil sustainably harvested from kernels of Marula Fruit cultivated in South Africa’s northern Limpopo province. Fatty acids present in our Marula oil are very similar to those present in your epidermis. This velvety biomimetic oil is one of Africa’s best kept ancestral beauty secrets.
White willow bark
White Willow Bark naturally contains salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is an aromatic compound that helps skin to shed dead cells from the top layer. In addition, salicylic acid helps to decrease redness, swelling and the number of spots that form.
