An all-over cream for everybody in the family, based in saturated fatty acids and pure Coconut Oil, with no unstable polyunsaturated (PUFA) oils. Containing cholesterol and Lanolin for protection against the elements, Urea and Niacinamide for supporting hydration and more youthful skin cell function, Naringenin to protect against and relieve UV damage, and Eugenol for its anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory benefits. It will leave your whole body glowing.

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride - Capric and caprylic acids are medium chain fatty acids derived from coconut oil. These specific fractions of coconut oil provide protection from moisture loss through the skin without the pore-clogging potential of whole coconut oil. 100% saturated fatty acids, stable with exposure to heat, light and oxygen.
Coconut Oil – The most highly saturated naturally occurring fat. Coconut oil is readily absorbed by the skin, supports hydration, barrier function, and fights skin infections, while also providing subtle protection from UV rays, without blocking the skin’s natural ability to manufacture Vitamin D.
Cholesterol – Derived from lanolin from sheep’s wool. Around 25% of the skin’s lipid layer that forms the skin barrier is comprised of cholesterol. One of the most reliable biomarkers of skin cell ageing is the amount of cholesterol in the skin cells. Cholesterol levels in the skin decline with ageing and applying cholesterol topically improves skin cell and overall barrier function. Read more (add link to our topical skin article)
Lanolin – also known as wool fat, from sheep’s wool, a waxy substance that forms a non-occlusive barrier (meaning it doesn’t smother skin, allowing it to ‘breathe’ and function), preserving the skin’s moisture levels and providing maximum protection from the elements.
Niacinamide - The amide form of Vitamin B3. Niacinamide easily penetrates the stratum corneum (outer layer of the skin). It is well proven to provide significant benefits to the skin, including enhancing barrier function, reducing the visible signs of skin ageing, protecting against UV damage, and relieving inflammatory skin conditions.
Urea - Synthetic. Part of the natural moisturising factor (NMF) of the skin. Urea in the skin decreases with age leading to dry and dull skin. It has both Keratolytic (exfoliating) and hydrating properties, reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Urea also has preservative, antibacterial and antiviral actions.
Eugenol – A unique compound derived from clove and sometimes cinnamon. It exhibits excellent antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic and antioxidant properties. Unlike many compounds extracted from essential oils, eugenol is not an endocrine disruptor, and may in fact have anti-estrogen effects. Its antimicrobial properties also adds to the preservation of our other ingredients.
Naringenin and other citrus flavonoids - Studies show skin benefits with topical use, including prevention of skin ageing, protection against UV damage, with anti-inflammatory, phyto-progestogenic, anti-fibrotic and anti-microbial actions.
Vitamin E – Has protective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Can improve UV related sun damage and promotes wound healing.
Coco-Caprylate/Caprate – An emollient made from a mixture of esters of saturated fatty alcohols derived from coconut. Supports the skin’s barrier by helping the skin retain moisture.
Glyceryl Behenate – An ester made up of glycerol and behenic acid (another fatty acid derived from coconut) that helps promote healthy skin by improving hydration and providing a protective barrier against the environment. It also emulsifies (brings together) our ingredients, and helps other key ingredients penetrate the outer layer of the skin.
Glycerin - Helps the skin to retain water and supports the recovery of the skin barrier function.
Glyceryl Caprylate – A mixture of glycerol and caprylate (fatty acid from coconut) that not only stabilises oil-water emulsions, but also has skin benefits of its own, helping to regulate skin moisture and restore natural oils. Has natural anti-fungal properties too.
Caprylhydroxamic Acid – An amino acid derived from coconut, that acts as a safe and effective preservative.
And of course water. Nothing else.
