DRAGON'S BLOOD RESIN
Obtained from the Dragon's Blood Tree, It’s actually a resin, with some seriously impressive science-backed skincare benefits. It has the ability to soothe, hydrate and plump up skin. It’s also thought to minimise redness and calm sensitive skin.
Studies show that dragon’s blood has a significant effect on wounds. Research also shows that Dragon's blood has a pro-collagen effect on the skin therefore minimising the signs of ageing.
Bakuchiol possesses antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. According to clinical studies, Bakuchiol is comparable with retinol in its ability to improve photo-aging (wrinkles, hyperpigmentation) with a better skin tolerance. It works through the same receptors that retinol uses, which is why many refer to it as a natural retinol alternative.
Rosehip oil is harvested from the seeds of rose bushes, which are commonly grown in Chile & that's exactly where our Organic Rosehip Seed oil is sourced From. Rosehip oil is loaded with vitamins A.C.E which helps in increasing skin cell turnover.
