INGREDIENTS
An ultimate blend of 22 precious oils.

Perilla (Shiso) oil
Extracted from the seeds of Perilla (Shiso, Japanese mint), which is the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. Perilla oil has multiple beneficial effects as it replenishes skin moisture, promotes down-regulation of inflammation and helps maintain healthy skin complexion.
Rice bran oil
Extracted from the germ of rice. It is rich in Vitamin B-complex vitamins, vitamin E and gamma oryzanol. Gamma oryzanol, a mixture of sterols and ferulic acids, is a potent antioxidant protecting skin from UV damage. It also has skin lightening properties. Phytosterols from the rice oil increase elasticity of the skin and keep it hydrated and soft.
Camellia oil
Camellia oil has been used for centuries by Geishas of Kyoto to moisturise and clean their skin leaving it supple and nourished. It has excellent protecting, emollient and moisturising properties due to the high amount of omega-9 fatty acid (oleic acid) and phytosqualene and its unique ability to permeate the lower layers of the stratum corneum. Camellia oil protects skin from harmful UV light by forming a thin shield against strong sun rays. Camellia oil has been used as an excellent illuminant to reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles and excessive pigmentation.
Squalane
Derived from Mediterranean olive oil, this botanical lipid mimics human skin lipids in molecular structure to help replenish their natural levels lost through the normal ageing process. Squalane nourishes and hydrates the skin, improves its elasticity and boosts the skin’s ability to naturally regenerate. It also acts as an antioxidant to protect the skin from damaging free radicals.
Rosehip oil
Contains vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, lycopene, beta-carotene, omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. Rose hip oil is rich in a natural source of vitamin A, known as trans-retinoic acid, which has the ability to help regenerate skin cells and to repair damaged skin tissue. Vitamin C promotes collagen and elastin production. It also helps diminish age spots and areas of discoloration. Although rosehip oil is an astringent, it does not dry out the skin. On the contrary, it keeps the moisture in and leaves the skin rehydrated, nourished and elastic. Rose hip oil is rich in a range of antioxidants, including beta-carotene and lycopene, which help to protect skin from premature ageing caused by damaging free radicals. Regular use of rosehip oil will help to reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles while improving skin color and tone.
