Our products solve skincare problems naturally and effectively. All our products are packed with nature’s most powerful antioxidants, anti-aging and medicinal ingredients. Our proprietary formulations have been tested and refined over a decade. Our prices reflect our mission to make high quality organic skincare available to everyone.
Hyaluronic acid: Natural compound produced by your body that aids in keeping your skin moisturized and youthful. As we age the body’s production of hyaluronic acid decreases year by year and your skin and as a result becomes drier and fine lines and wrinkles begin appearing. Using hyaluronic acid products help hold in moisture, stimulate collagen production and helps plump your skin which aids in filling in of fine lines and wrinkles leaving a more dewy and youthful complexion. HA also aids in skin tissue repair from sun, wind and environmental damage. We also use high molecular weight HA (vs low molecular weight like some other brands) which help retains MORE moisture. In addition unlike other serum formulas that have HA just sit ON TOP of your skin our natural carrier oils help HA absorb directly into your skin.
Vitamin C: Prime ingredient of stimulating collagen production. Stable collagen production fights wrinkles and ensure evenness in skin’s tone, texture and reduce dark spots. It is also a super antioxidant as it is able to protect the skin from free radicals. Unlike other formulas containing vitamin c with absorbic acid which is unstable and therefore deteriorate quickly (which is why those serums change color) and can also irritate the skin, our formula contains a more stable form which greatly extends the shelf life and is non-irritating.
Argan oil: Often referred to “liquid gold” is extremely rich in nutrients which makes it highly beneficial for hair and skin as it is also easily absorbed. Argan oil is also a super antioxidant and anti-aging ingredient as it restores elasticity to skin and reduces inflammation. The vitamin E and fatty acids are excellent for repairing dry, damaged skin or other conditions such as eczema, stretch marks and promotes healing. A few drop on affected areas helps speed up the dealing process.
Rose oil : We use Bulgarian rose oil made from rare Bulgarian roses that have been cultivated over many years. Bulgarian rose oil is considered the most potent rose oil in the world and is known for its high content of antioxidants. Bulgarians are experts at harvesting, processing and cultivating them at the right time so the beneficial properties are transferred to the oil in the highest concentration possible. The oil is an anti-inflammatory and tissue regenerator loaded with therapeutic benefits for the skin. Great for sensitive skin as it reduces redness and calms the skin. The oil tends to be expensive as it takes tens of thousands of rose petals to produce one ounce but it is extremely potent so only a tiny amount is needed.
Rosewater: This is a must in every skin regime and why it’s often found in every Indian household. It has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that reduce redness and helps healing acne, dermatitis and eczema. It is also an astringent so removes oil and dirt accumulated in pores. The antioxidant properties help to strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues.
Jojoba oil: Rich in vitamins and minerals including vitamin e + complex and is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and comedogenic. It is extremely beneficial for hair, face entire body. Since this oil is very similar to oil body creates naturally its quickly absorbed into skin. Helps reduce under eye dark circles and stretch marks.

Propolis: Known as “bee glue” is a resin like substance made from collected tree resins that are processed by bees. Has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It’s a strong antiviral, antibacterial and healing ingredient with lots of vitamins for healthier skin.
Aloe water: Herbal remedy since ancient times that accelerates skin’s natural healing process by speeding up cell production . Anti-inflammatory (equivalent to 1% hydrocortisone) and antibacterial properties. Rich in vitamin c + e and beta carotene. Helps reduce pore size.
Volcanic ash (bentonite) clay: Powerful acne treatment. Harvested from soil made from volcanic ash. Packed with minerals (iron sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium). Clay has negative electric charge which in turn removes toxins from skin. Since many toxins have positive charge the clay bonds to them. When it comes into contact with a toxin, heavy metal, chemical or other impurity the clay gobbles up the toxins. Clay also pulls hydrogen from cells allowing room for oxygen.
