Lavender Flower – Lavender contains soothing, calming properties and helps give skin clarity.
Rhodiola – Used in cosmetics as an antioxidant, astringent and skin-conditioning agent. Studies have also shown that rhodiola enhances skin barriers to help prevent premature aging and wrinkling.

Grape Seed - Contain flavonoids (plant pigments that are beneficial to health) which provide potent antioxidant protection. Grape Seed also contains resveratrol, a substance that acts as an anti-inflammatory and provides antioxidant protection.
Hibiscus - The flowers of the Hibiscus have anti-oxidant properties and help to maintain the skin's elasticity and thereby offering anti-aging effects. Known for its skin conditioning properties, it is beneficial in skin care products.
Bladderwrack - Effective antioxidant with water-binding properties for skin. Bladderwrack is an edible brown sea vegetable which grows in Europe and the United States. Its name comes from the air-filled sacs or bladders which help keep it afloat in the ocean. Because it grows in the sea, it accumulates and concentrates various minerals and nutrients not readily found in earthbound plants, including iodine. It also contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and iron.
White Willow Bark - White Willow Bark is a natural astringent. The herb contains a natural exfoliate.
Witch Hazel Leaf – Excellent for addressing inflamed and swollen skin. Witch hazel is a natural astringent and contains cleansing constituents.
Coffee Seed - Loaded with compounds which help reduce the growth of bacteria, plus powerful antioxidants to neutralize free radicals that cause cell damage. Coffee and caffeine are both vasodilators, causing the surface of the skin to constrict and give it a smooth appearance.
Red Raspberry Leaf - A potent antioxidant with anti-bacterial properties, the red raspberry leaf has multiple cosmetic benefits. Used as an astringent, it aids in tightening up the skin, making it firmer and wrinkle-free. The leaves contain a high concentration of nutrients, including flavonoids, to aid in the regeneration of skin.
