PRO Starflower • ANTI Petroleum

Plants can hydrate?! Yes, and this is proof!

Common moisturisers contain things that can irritate your skin over time such as; Propylene Glycol, Petroleum Oils, Silicones and so on… Instead we use a variety of plant-based oils which easily absorb into the skin, naturally.

a bit about it

Starflower, is the perfect nickname for Borage Seed Oil - the star of this show! It’s the highest natural source of GLA (an Omega-6 fatty acid), ensuring healthy skin cell walls, while hydrating, soothing and calming redness.

Oh, plus it’s infused with Coconut Oil, Liquorice Root, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, making a rich moisturiser your skin will drink up to its health - even the most irritable types.

We’ve left this moisturiser fairly scent-free. Because it stays on your skin for some time we didn’t want to add too many essential oils, give you a headache, take over your perfume, or worse cause a skin irritation. So we just added a little wild geranium, to cover the scent of our natural preservation method, containing hops (if you’ve been on a brewery tour you know hops doesn’t smell the best, so you’ll be glad we masked it).

directions

Suitable for both your face & body (myth busted!) Rub this cream on wherever you can reach and let it soak in.

ANTI

  • Petroleum Derived Oils, because the extraction of these is damaging to the environment.
  • Silicone in moisturisers are generally used as a filler ingredient and don’t have a tangible benefit to the long term health of your skin. They can build up on the skin leading to acne or more sensitive skin with irritations.
  • Fragrance or Perfume, synthetic scents can cause skin irritation just as some essential oils alone can (and why we mix small amounts of natural oils together)
  • Propylene Glycol is used to increase moisturiser retention in some moisturisers but it can be toxic, its effects can vary depending on the dose. As it absorbs moisture from anything around it and penetrates it deep into the skin it can harm the lipid barrier of your skin, causing irritation. Severe effects can include nausea, vertigo and even seizures.
  • Silicones don’t provide any tangible long term benefit for your skin (unless you’re dealing with a wound or burn), therefore they have no purpose in your moisturiser. They’re also difficult to wash off, but when you do wash them off they contribute to the build up of pollution in oceans and waterways. They create a barrier, so they can trap dead skin-cells, oil and dirt as well as block other ingredients from doing their job if you’re into skincare layering. 
  • Parabens, these nasty little ingredients can cause contact dermatitis or skin irritations. Some studies also state they can elevate cellular level damage caused by UV exposure leading to skin cancer and scientists have concerns they can also disrupt hormones harming the body.

"This moisturiser is essential to my daily skincare. It's super moisturising, smells nice and is very gentle. It also creates such a nice smooth, matte base for foundation. My skin has never been clearer using this range. "
