Calendula Extract - ECOCert Certified Organic
is an aromatic annual plant belonging to the Asteraceae (Compositae) family native to the Mediterranean area, although it is widely spread throughout the world as an ornamental plant. The name Calendula stems from the Latin kalendae, meaning first day of the month, presumably because pot marigolds are in bloom at the start of most months of the year. Calendula oil is classed as a macerated or infused oil, where the plant material is infused in oil. The botanical material is later removed, leaving the oil with some of the properties of the botanical material. Calendula is used for its soothing and healing properties and to assist with circulation and collagen growth.
Chamomile Extract - ECOCert Certified Organic
is a common name for a daisy-like plant. Chamomile is one of the oldest favorites amongst garden herbs and its reputation as a medicinal plant shows little signs of abatement. The Egyptians reverenced it for its virtues, and from their belief in its power to cure ague, supposedly dedicated it to their gods. The extract contains active Flavonoid and Essential Oil compounds, which are particularly advantageous in the care of sensitive skin, while the powder wash will relax, soften and heal the skin.Glycerin
is a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture to your skin. Glycerin is a natural by-product of the soapmaking process and while commercial manufacturers remove the glycerin for use in their more profitable lotions and creams, handcrafted soap retains glycerin in each and every bar. Some of the extracts used have glycerin added to them during the extraction process.
Green Tea Extract - ECOCert Certified Organic
are herbal derivatives from green tea leaves (Camellia sinensis). They contain antioxidant ingredients and even exhibit stronger antioxidant protection for human body than vitamin C and vitamin E. Due to the high antioxidant levels of green tea extracts, it is hoped that they will be further developed as a natural food preservative.
Lavandula Officinalis (Essential Oil of Lavender)
is an aromatic
perennial evergreen shrub. Its woody stems bear lavender or purple
flowers from late spring to early autumn, although there are varieties
with blossoms of white or pink. The use of Lavender goes back thousands
of years, with the first recorded uses by the Egyptians during the
mummification process. Lavender was used as an after-bath perfume by the
Romans, who gave the herb its name from the Latin lavare, to wash. It
stimulates the growth of new skin cells, tones and balances the skin and
is a natural preservative from Active Micro Systems combining the current trends for alternative preservative systems and peptide technology. Derived from radishes fermented with Leuconostoc kimchii, a lactic acid bacteria that has traditionally been used to make kimchi, this product consists of an isolated peptide that is secreted from the bacteria during the fermentation process that has been shown to have antimicrobial benefits.
Natural water usually contains a number of microscopic contaminants, along with dissolved minerals such as calcium and iron. One way to remove these elements from water is to boil it until it changes to steam, a process known as distillation. When this steam is allowed to cool down and condense into liquid form again, the result is a purified form.
