The Active Ones

Our products contain oodles of yummy ingredients but lets discuss the Active ingredients and how they work. 

 

Quandong  Quandong is super high in antioxidants. In fact it’s the second- highest antioxidant fruit ever measured. The highest is kakadu plum, Quandong is high in Rutin. This is a strong antioxidant which works particularly well in partnership with Vitamin C. Rutin intensifies the antioxidant power of Vitamin C. It’s also a great anti-inflammatory. This clever fruit acts like an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) naturally exfoliating dead skin cells.

Papaya Papaya contains an enzyme called papain, which digests away dead and unhealthy skin cells." The effect? Brighter, smoother skin, clearer pores, and less pimples. In fact "Papain is very beneficial for preventing and treating acne."  "Papaya is also rich in vitamins A and C, which have antioxidant benefits."

Kakadu Plum Vitamin C is essential for glowing skin; it firms skin, helps fade dark spots, can help fade acne scarring, and improves the way skin responds to UV light.  So we consider Vitamin C a skincare essential, and Kakadu Plums contain a whole lot of it. In fact, it’s estimated that a single Kakadu plum contains more Vitamin C than an orange—55 times more, to be exact.  Kakadu plums are used by local indigenous people as medicine—and it’s especially known as a traditional antibiotic and anti-inflammatory. This means that, when applied to skin, it can reduce swelling, redness and even help get rid of bacterially-induced acne.

Hyaluronic Acid - There are two main sources of Hyaluronic acid the first being animal extracted (from Rooster Combs typically) and the second being bacterial fermentation. Our product is from bacterial fermentation using glucose that is corn derived to create hyaluronic acid in a bio fermentation process. 

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance found naturally in our skin that holds water and helps keep it hydrated and plump. The molecule holds a thousand times its weight in water to not only retain all that moisture in our skin, but also prevent all that moisture from evaporating into the air

If you’re applying hyaluronic acid to a very dry face, it can actually end up drawing moisture from the deeper levels of your skin, which in turn will cause more harm than good and leave your complexion feeling tight and uncomfortable.

It’s a problem that usually occurs when humidity levels are extremely low – meaning there’s a lack of moisture in the air. 

The best way to apply your Hyaluronic acid is with damp not wet hands and then over layer it with your moisturiser. 

Desert Lime The Desert Lime is a thorny shrub or small tree wild harvested from bushland of the semi-arid regions of Queensland, New South Wales & South Australia where it is relatively common. The Australian Desert Lime is packed with tiny pearls of potent actives that support collagen production, sunscreens, psoriasis, eczema and skin repair.  It contains a rich concentration of Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant to help rejuvenate the skin, enhance skin firmness, even out patchy skin tone & revitalize skin tissue.

Green Tea Apart from healing, green tea is a great antibacterial agent, which can be used to treat skin problems like acne, pimples and uncloging pores. The presence of antioxidants such as Polyphenols help in fighting infection and bacterial membranes, which help in treating acne.

Pomegranate Being rich in antioxidants, pomegranates neutralise the effect of free radicals in our body. The anti-ageing plant compounds in the fruit also help in stimulating keratinocyte cells (skin cells) and help in cellular regeneration thereby keeping wrinkles and sagging skin at bay.

White Willow Bark Willow bark contains salicylic acid, derived from salicin, which helps to fight acne and is an all natural, gentle exfoliant. White willow bark helps to exfoliate your skin by sloughing off dead skin cells, making way for fresh, bright and radiant skin.

It is also beneficial when your skin looks dull and sallow from poor diet or too much alcohol ecobeech pink clay mask is also infused with several healing herbal powders such as Chamomile Candendula and Aloe Vera 

Calendula Calendula Extract is a botanical ingredient that comes from the common marigold. This ingredient has several properties that make it an essential in any skin care regimen.  Calendula is a plant extract that's been proven beneficial to skin.

Vitamin C As far as your skin is concerned, vitamin C is "a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin C aids in your skin's natural regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells."

Peptide - By stimulating collagen production, peptides can give your skin the appearance of being more "plump." Strengthens skin barrier: When peptides help amp up your skin cells, they also help strengthen your skin barrier, Ecobeech Peptide cream contains Hydrolyzed Rice Protein which is a peptide that simulates cell propagation also improving collagen renewal.

Snowflower extract -  Strong anti-inflammatory actions and an abundance of vitamin C means the Snowflower Seed works wonders at targeting age spots and pigmentation. Kaempferol, a flavonoid glycoside present in Snowflower Extract also provides depigmentation and anti-inflammatory properties.The Snowflower is abundant in a specific type of antioxidant called catechins which are 100 times more potent than vitamin C and 25 times more potent than vitamin E. These catechins work to enhance collagen production, improve skin hydration and increase and restore the luminosity of the skin after sun exposure. Vitamin C along with Quercetin, found in the Snowflower Extract, reduces histamine production thereby reducing inflammation, working to brighten the skin, reduce redness and reduce skin sensitivity. Quercetin is a potent antioxidant which neutralises free radicals and reduces some of the damage they cause. Catechins and Kaempferol glycosides also inhibit skin photoaging induced by UV radiation which makes the Snowflower Extract a potent anti-ageing and photo-protective ingredient.
