Active Key Ingredients
So, what’s in our products? Why are these botanicals so exceptional?
At Body Pure we specialise in producing small batch natural artisan skin care. Every single ingredient has a specific purpose and benefit. The combination of ingredients in Body Pure products work in specific synergy with each other. Carefully formulated to work to maximum effect in our precise compositions. The following information gives an explanation of skin beneficial properties for our key ingredients.
Peptides ~ As collagen reduces with age skin can become thinner and develop fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is a protein and Peptides are mini proteins - chains of 3 to 6 amino acids linked together. They act as a signalling system to the cells in skin to activate collagen production to plump the skin and reduce fine lines. The peptides used in Body Pure products are all plant based.
Jojoba ~ The structure of Jojoba oil is very similar to the skins’ own sebum and is naturally high in rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E. Vitamin A is great for easing the appearance of wrinkles and vitamin E along with being an antioxidant, helps reduce the appearance of blemishes on the skin.
Moringa is rich in oleic acid to deeply moisturize and nourish. Moringa oil absorbs easily into the skin, improving the appearance and radiance of skin. It has skin healthy nutrients like vitamin A and C helping to build collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, along with the healing and anti-inflammatory benefits of vitamin E. It softens dry skin and maintains moisture in the skin, it’s good for conditioning dry, chapped lips and is beneficial in treating rough, dry skin conditions.
Retinol / Vitamin A is essential in promoting luminous, radiant youthful looking skin. As skin is exposed to more sun we loose the natural stores of vitamin A in our skin. This needs to be replenished regularly in at a cellular level in our skin. Vitamin A is key in repairing skin and promoting the renewal of new and healthy skin cells to maintain a healthy glow.
Baobab helps to maintain normal colour of skin by balancing out melanin pigment, topically. It helps in early wound healing and is quick to absorb into skin with exceptional conditioning properties. It is non-comedogenic meaning it does not clog pores.
Poppy Seed Oil is high in linoleic acids, oleic acid and palmitic acid, minerals and proteins. High in vitamin E, and has no narcotic properties. Poppy seed oil is notable for being especially high in tocopherols (antioxidants) and is especially effective in hydrating skin and improving skin elasticity.
Vitamin C The skin needs vitamin C to produce collagen to firm, tighten and tone the skin. As a active ingredient in our skincare vitamin C helps protect skin from free radicals and damage from UV ray exposure. It improves not only the appearance of skin but also the feel and more even smooth texture of skin.
Vitamin E helps in caring for the skin. It is soothing as well as moisturising and is especially effective at calming minor skin irritations. Vitamin E has substantial antioxidant properties beneficial to protect skin from free radicals in the environment.
Raspberry Seed is high in carotenoids which are strong antioxidants that play a crucial role in the health of our skin. They inhibit UV damage and stimulate cell repair. Raspberry Seed Oil has 83% essential fatty acids which contain benefits such as being anti-inflammatory, regenerating skin cells and helping to bring moisture to the skin.
Cactus Flower is a light and easily absorbing oil. It tightens pores for a smoother and refined skin texture preventing fine lines and wrinkles. It reduces dark spots and under-eye shadows. This is a remarkable ingredient which has amazing regenerative effects on the skin. This ingredient has a high concentration of Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and essential fatty acids (Omega 6). This oil contains more Tocopherol than almost any other oil.
Sodium ~ sea salts are excellent natural and biodegradable exfoliates, they include Mediterranean, Pink Himalayan, Hawaiian and Dead Sea Salts. These salts have different trace minerals that help to promote circulation, reduce inflammation and are detoxifying. As a natural detoxifier, sea salts help to draw unwanted toxins out and away from the skin. The trace minerals include iron, potassium and calcium. They are great for exfoliating dry skin as their abrasive edges smooth the rough skin on the body. The salts have muscle relaxant properties which act as a therapeutic benefit to the skin. Our salt scrubs are best followed up by one of our deeply moisturising body butters.
