Organic White Peony Root Extract
All our products are made with our own Organic White Peony Root which is grown and harvested from our organic farm in the Dove Valley in Nelson. Every year in Autumn we harvest the White Peony Root following the British Pharmacopoeia Standards. Root samples are then sent to Cawthron Institute for testing where they determine the amount of active ingredient Paeoniflorin present in the root. We then send our White Peony Root to Alaron Natural Products Manufacturer in Nelson to make our extract and prepare our cremes. Alaron are a world class, GMP Certified, Natural Products Manufacturer.
Avocado Oil & Cocoa Butter
Our cremes are made with two carrier oils.They are designed to really hydrate your skin and have their own unique properties. Avocado oil is extremely good at hydrating and softening your skin, is it also often recommended as an effective treatment for acne, eczema and other forms of skin inflammation. Cocoa butter will help by softening and moisturizing your skin, it will smooth out the tone and texture of it, making scars look less noticeable. Furthermore, applying cocoa butter topically on a daily basis can help facilitate repairing damaged skin.
We use a naturally certified preservative called Geoguard 221 to keep our creme fresh and make it last for the 2 year shelf life it is certified for.
