Benefits:

Key Bioactives:

  • caprylic/capric triglycerides, derived from medium chain coconut fatty acids, have a light texture and are readily absorbed into skin without leaving a greasy residue.

  • squalane is a light and stable version of olive oil squalene. found naturally in the sebum of human skin, squalane helps to lubricate and protect the skin while being rapidly absorbed.  

  • kukui nut oil contains linoleic and linolenic fatty acids which are excellent for repairing the skin's barrier mechanisms and decreasing transepidermal water loss. it also contains oleic acid, which moisturizes and softens the skin. 

  • papaya seed oil, rich in fatty acids, penetrates and moisturizes the skin effectively.

  • blue yarrow essential oil has anti-inflammatory properties. its scent is sweet and fresh. when distilled, one of its constituents decomposes into chamazulene, which lends its entrancing, deep blue color.

  • yuzu essential oil is derived from the rare and prized yuzu fruit. it is traditionally floated in a hot ceremonial bath on the night of the winter solstice with the aim of protecting against colds, stimulating the skin, warming the body, and relaxing the mind.
