A mild facial cleanser that does not dehydrate or cause skin irritations, and removes even the most persistent makeup. Its astringent and anti-inflammatory effect is due to the use of organic witch hazel water, while the macadamia nut oil, enriched with vitamin E, nourishes and moisturises, helping the repair process of cells and tissue.

Harsh alkaline soaps and cleansers with sulphates, expose skin to inflammations, disturb the skin’s natural PH, and may lead to irritated skin. When replaced with natural, mild surfactants, mainly derived from natural sources such as fructose and coconut oil, skin irritations are reduced since they have gentle cleansing abilities that do not remove our natural oils from the outer layer of the epidermis. They are excellent emollients, they help soften and soothe the skin.
This ingredient is derived from renewable raw ingredients such as, coconut oil and fructose, and is fully biodegradable. It does not consist of any elements that are aggravative for the body such as, parabens, diethanolamides, lauryl sulfates, laureth sulfates, and formaldehyde. It has powerful cleansing properties and enhances the skin’s hydration.
Organic Macadamia Nut Oil
Organic Macadamia Nut Oil is rich in fatty acids such as, palmitoleic acid, which helps prevent the premature aging of the skin.It is also rich in oleic acid, which blocks Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL), making it ideal for hydrating dry, sensitive skin. Its high concentration in phytosteroles, which protect the cellular membrane, helps in the proper function of the epidermal barrier.
Organic Hamamelis Water
Hamamelis Blossom Water is a powerful anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and astringent ingredient. These properties help firm and cleanse the skin’s pores. It is highly recommended when dealing with acne, psoriasis and eczema.
Organic Orange Water
Orange Water actively promotes blood circulation and helps skin look rejuvenated and radiant. It also helps against skin dryness.
Organic Aloe Vera
Aloe contains more than 75 nutrients, including 12 vitamins, 20 minerals and 18 aminoacids. It constitutes a real “storage” of valuable ingredients since it contains vitamins such as Α, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, E, as well as folic acid. It contains trace elements such as, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, molybdenum, selenium, potassium, and iodine, as well as other aminoacids.
Organic Lavender Oil
Its main active compounds are terpenic alcohols: linalool, a substance well-known for its antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, and neurotonic properties. It also has a powerful antiseptic effect, since it is used to clear eczema and acne, and other antibacterial properties used against many viruses and bacteria (e.g streptococcus, pneumococcus, staphylococcus E.coli).
Panthenol (provitamin Β5) is easily absorbed, it has an incredible healing effect and can maintain high levels of hydration for the skin. It contributes in cell proliferation and the composition of intracellular proteins.
Our skin’s microbiome, which is the ecosystem of our organism’s bacteria, is disrupted on a daily basis from environmental pollution and exposure to sunlight. When the delicate balance between good and bad skin bacteria is disrupted, it creates sensitivity and various types of inflammation, such as atopic dermatitis, staphylococcus, or extremely dry skin. A classic approach in skin protection focuses on preserving the skin’s natural barrier, ignoring the need to protect the skin’s microbiome, which is of the utmost importance!
It has been clinically proven that adding prebiotics to skincare products help the skin’s microbiome become more tolerant to the environmental “attacks” it undergoes on a daily basis.
Prebiotics (inulin and fructose) nourish the beneficial microbial flora, creating a natural defensive shield against all environmental polluters, while protecting and reinforcing the skin’s healthy appearance. In this way, we preserve the health of our good bacteria and preventthecolonisationofbadbacteria, andwardoffinfections. The prebiotics we use are clinically proven to be extremely effective, reduce itchiness, and soothe irritated skin.
