After Sun Care
100ml Airless Pump Dispenser
Soothes, cools and moisturises all in one. Soothing Aloe Vera and Cucumber with calming Evening Primrose, Calendula and Lavender plus added Vitamin A and E. A little goes a long way, spreads easily & absorbs fast - crucial for sunburnt skin!
Gently massage lotion on all areas previously exposed to sun including face. Also soothes skin after shaving and waxing.
Water - We have only added water so that this lotion is light and quickly absorbed. It is not added to bulk out the ingredients. The rest of the plant oils are all organic.
Organic Aloe Vera - has passed the inspection of the International Aloe Science Council. The Toxin "aloin" is removed by flash pasteurisation leaving the beneficial qualities which are water, lignin, saponins, anthraquines, carbohydrate glucomannans (of particular importance is acemannan), tannins, steroids, enzymes, growth hormones, aloin, glucommannans, salicylic acid, and fatty acids. Aloe Vera also contains twenty amino acids (including all eight essential amino acids), at least nine minerals i.e. calcium, sodium, iron, potassium, zinc, chromium, magnesium, manganese and copper, and a number of vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, A, C, E, folic acid, and choline - all for healing and soothing.
Organic Cucumber Glycerol Extract - Fresh, whole organic cucumbers are extracted by a proprietary process approved by the Soil Association and it results in a sparkling, clear extract, which is not as sticky. It is sterilised by filtration so no preservative is necessary. Contains ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and caffeic acid to sooth, cool and reduce puffiness.
Organic Calendula - UK-grown flowers cold macerated in Organic High-Oleic content Sunflower Oil (origin: Holland) with 0.1% Rosemary Antioxidant. Promotes soft, smooth and supple skin. High in calendulin, carotene, waxes, tannins, phosphorous and vitamins A and C, a good wound healer and works well in treating scarred, damaged and irritated skin.
Organic Rosehip Oil - The only vegetable oil which contains natural tretinoin, the acid form of vitamin A also known as all-trans-retinoic acid or ATRA. Grown in Chile but processed in the UK, the processing of which is approved by The Soil Association. For skin infections such as acne, pimples and boils. Also useful in the repair of damaged skin tissue caused by scalds, burns, varicose veins and skin over-exposed to sunlight, and for treating oily skin, sensitive skin, and reducing or healing fine lines around the eyes, wrinkles and scars. Rosehip is amongst the best vegetable oil source of Omega 3 and is also a good source of Omega 6, both essential fatty acids collectively known as Vitamin F, involved in cellular membrane and tissue regeneration and normalising skin with large pores.
Organic Evening Primrose Oil - Exceptionally high content of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), a substance the body needs to create prostaglandins. The skin needs prostaglandins as deficiencies will cause dryness, loss of suppleness and wrinkling. The skin will age more quickly and be less tolerant to sunlight and any damage to the skin will take longer to heal. Penetrates down and into the skin, which as a result becomes softer and is less prone to eczema and acne. It has a moisture-retaining effect, prevents drying of the skin, increases the cells’ ability to absorb oxygen and to withstand disease.
Organic Jojoba Oil - A dry, thin oil, which is cold pressed from seeds. An excellent source of Omegas 3 & 6 essential fatty acids (also known as vitamin F). Helps to reduce the size of the pores
Organic Glycerine - Non Palm, sourced from the nut oil of the Karanja tree. Used here to thicken.
Organic Orange Fruit Water - Blended with the above Glycerine and Sugar Esters to create the emulsification.
Sucrose Laurate (Sugar Esters) - Sugar esters are made by combining sucrose with a fatty acid via an esterification reaction. Used for emulsification.
Natural Vitamin E - Alpha, beta, gamma and delta tocopherols which are 100% natural. Vitamin E is a classic antioxidant, which protects against the destruction of the connective tissue caused by free radicals. Non-GMO.
Vitamin A - Used in products for dry and mature skin and skin infections. Nourishes and counteracts inflammation, protecting cell membranes and other structures within the cells from the damage caused by free radicals helping to prevent skin disorders.
Xanthum Gum - A polysaccharide, which is produced by fermenting glucose used here to thicken.
Preservative (Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Glycerine, Sorbic Acid) - We are sorry to add this but have to by law as it prevents the buildup of bacteria, yeast and mould which would NOT be pleasant. It is a broad spectrum system approved by ECOCERT & COSMOS. It is non-paraben, non-formaldehyde and non-isothiazolone.
Organic Essential Oil of Lavender - Angustifolia variety, flowers from France harvested at high altitudes. When lavender is grown at over 1400 meters, the plant produces more esters. If the oil is also distilled at high altitude, there is a lower air pressure so a lower temperature can be used & therefore more of the very volatile chemicals come through from the plant to the oil. It is more than worth all the effort as this is a superb oil.
The list of properties for lavender is one of the longest of all the aromatherapy oils. Here it is used for its calming, soothing affect & it seems to work best in small amounts.
Organic Essential Oil of Lemon Scented Tea Tree - Related to Manuka, this lemon scented tea tree works really well at calming irritated skin.
