In addition to its phenolic properties (similar to AHAs – alpha-hydroxy acids) which help to gently exfoliate the skin Quandong extract also contains naturally derived Vitamin C to help brighten the skin.

(Vitamin B3) – An anti-inflammatory that minimises redness & blotchiness. Improves uneven skin tone, balances oil production. An excellent ingredient for acne-prone and sensitive skin types because of how it supports the skin’s delicate barrier by protecting it from dehydration and inflammation. Importantly, we use a premium grade that reduces the unpleasant sensations of heat on the skin that many other niacinamide powders can cause. This higher-grade also helps us to keep the pH level at a healthy 5.5 in the finished product.
White Willow Bark Extract
Used topically to calm redness and irritation due to its proven anti-inflammatory properties. It also has excellent antimicrobial efficacy. The natural salicylates found in White Willow Bark increase the rate of cellular renewal, ensuring that dull dead skin cells are exfoliated. The photoactive white willow bark used in the formulation is a standardized active with proven efficacy and the usage of 2% helps to stimulate the natural cell renewal process of the skin. It also acts as a natural preservative in the finished product.
(Palm Free) – Derived from corn sugars, this is a great natural alternative to Propylene glycol. It has a non-sticky feel on the skin and has two functions in this formula: as a preservative booster & as a humectant which is the process where water is drawn to the skin which makes Propanediol an excellent skin moisturiser and ideal for sensitive or dry skin.
Oats Beta Glucan
A natural polysaccharide derived from oats. A potent humectant that attracts and locks moisture into the skin. Clinically proven to penetrate deep into the epidermis. The molecules link together and form a very thin film, which then boosts the skin’s natural barrier protecting the skin from daily environmental stress and damage. Oats Beta-glucan has the ability to strengthen the skin’s immune response by guarding the skin against microbes such as bacteria and pathogens which disrupt the skin’s barrier.
Lemon Myrtle Extract
An Australian active ingredient, specially designed to improve control of oily skin caused by environmental aggressions like pollution. This extract is clinically proven to reduce the overproduction of sebum & shine and protect skin from oxidative stress. It has excellent antibacterial and fungicide properties.
Quandong Fruit Extract

These function similar to an AHA, which works to exfoliate the uppermost layers of skin.
