Harakeke Seed Oil

Harakeke Seed Oil

Phormium tenax

Sourced in New Zealand

Harakeke is the Maori name for New Zealand flax, a luxurious botanical moisturizer that is packed with linoleic acid, which boosts the skin’s barrier layer, helping to seal in natural moisture. Au sources its Harakeke seeds from the Tasmin district of New Zealand, it is non GMO. Harakeke seeds are rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6, (EFA’s – essential fatty acids) making them super nourishing for our skin. EFA’s are not produced naturally within our bodies but they do play an important role in the health of our skin, EFA’s can help to regulate our skins cell function by aiding the control of trans-epidermal water flow. This in turn will thicken our skin and help to naturally improve our skins barrier function. EFA’s can also be a good solution in improving acne, by promoting healthy cell renewal and dissolving the fatty deposits that block our pores we help the skin to naturally repair and strengthen.

Ribrose

Ribrose

Riboxyl – zea mays

Sourced in New Zealand

Au Natural Skinfood uses Pure Ribrose which is a natural pentose obtained from corn seeds. Pure Ribrose is a key molecule present in all living cells necessary for the synthesis of ATP used in every cell metabolic reaction as a source of energy. Pure Ribrose – The sugar of life A sugar that occurs in all living cells. It restores energy to the skin for a global anti-aging action. Over time skin cells undergo various stresses (e.g. pollution, physical effort, tobacco smoke and ageing) which make the ATP reserves fall, thus altering cell functioning, leading to an acceleration of ageing process, appearance of wrinkles, loss of elasticity and dull complexion. Ribrose is a fundamental building block of the ATP molecule. To function efficiently, skin cells must keep their ATP content at a maximum level. By supplementing skin with Ribrose, cell energy recovery is accelerated by inducing faster ATP synthesis and providing optimum condition for skin cell to fight the signs of ageing.

9 Berries Extract

9 Berries Extract

Various

Sourced in New Zealand

Au Natural Skinfood has chosen this complex which is composed of 9 berries with complementary activities including deeply moisturising, antioxidant activity and restructuring activity. 1. Acai (Euterpe oleracea) Acai is a berry coming from an ornamental palm, with multiple branches, which can reach up to 25 m in height. The small round fruit is purple and born in bunches of 3 to 8. The fruit is highly nutritional and so is very valued by the Amazonians for use in wine or as a juice, and it is an important and popular dietary complement. Consequently, sportsmen traditionally used it too. Also, acai was known for its antioxidant, anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties. 2. Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) Vaccinium myrtillus is a shrub with permanent leaves. The fruit is a round and flat topped berry, very abundant in mountainous regions of North hemisphere. The bilberry was traditionally used as an anti-oxidant, astringent, antiseptic and tonic. Moreover, it is traditionally used to wash for sores and wounds, and for dry eczema. During World War II, British Royal Air Force pilots ate bilberry preserves before missions in order to improve their vision. 3. Strawberry (Fragaria vesca) Strawberry is a delicate, thin-leaved and perennial growing plant, with small, scarlet berries, cone-shaped and studded with tiny, brown seeds. The fruit has a specific fragrance and flavour very delicate and sweet. It is traditionally used as astringent and tonic. Also, strawberry is often utilized against acne and eczema. It largely employed for reducing superfluous flesh locally, and to whiten skin naturally, to remove freckles and to preserve complexion. 4. Cherry (Prunus cerasus) Prunus cerasus is a deciduous tree growing up to 6 m. Fruits are round and red, almost black, and very sweet. In Taoist Chinese medicine, eating cherries is recommended to treat sore throat. Then, in the Middle Ages, doctors and herbalists form the Salerne school in Italy employed it to clean the organism. It is traditionally used as antioxidant, astringent, anti-inflammatory and tonic too. 5. Black mulberry (Morus nigra) Black mulberry is small bushy-headed tree, with large, alternate, deciduous lobed leaves.

It has a long history of medicinal use in Chinese medicine for its numerous properties as antioxidant, antiseptic, astringent, analgesic, emollient... 6. Wild blackberry (Rubus fruticosus) Blackberry or bramble is a deciduous bush to 3 m, growing in many hedgerows. The fruit is bluish black at maturity in September and is formed from the aggregation of carpels modified and transformed into drupelets that remain adherent to the floral receptacle. Blackberry is traditionally employed for the treatment of skin rashes, wounds, ulcers, infections and to soothe inflamed mucosa. Then, the London Pharmacopoeia of 1679 describes ripe blackberries as excellent restorative. 7. Cranberry (Vaccinium oxycoccos) Cranberry is a creeping evergreen perennial shrub, growing to 0.1 m by 1 m, with edible berries of up to 13 mm in diameter.

Retinol

Retinol

Vitamin A Pamitate

Sourced in the United States

Retinyl palmitate is the ester of retinol (vitamin A) combined with palmitic acid, a saturated fatty acid and a major component of palm oil. The retinyl palmitate that we use in Au’s products is imported and is certified to be sourced from sustainable sources of palm oil, it is free from the risk of allergens regulated in the US, does not contain any alcohol or animal product and has never been tested on animals. It is not considered to be the same ingredient as retinol, although it is converted to retinol, and then to the active component of retinoic acid once it is absorbed by the skin after being topically applied. It belongs to the family of chemical compounds known as retinoids and is one of the most important vitamins for the appearance of the skin because of its small molecular structures. These tiny molecules could penetrate the outer layers of the skin and work to repair the lower layers where collagen and elastin reside (source). Retinyl Palmitate is an effective skin conditioning agent. It reduces flaking and restores suppleness, thus improving the appearance of dry and damaged skin. It is also an effective antioxidant improving collagen production and plumps skin, helping smooth out fine lines. Retinyl palmitate is found naturally occurring in our skin, where it works as an antioxidant, particularly helping to protect our skin from UV light exposure—though it does not replace the need for sunscreen.

Glycerin

Glycerin

Vegetable Derived

Sourced in New Zealand

Glycerin is a natural component of healthy skin, it is a clear, colourless and odourless liquid. Derived from vegetable sources it is hygroscopic which means that glycerine can draw moisture from the air around us and help keep that moisture in our skin. Research has shown that glycerin mimics what is know as skins natural moisturising factor (NMF), which is why it is compatible with all skin types, of all ages. Replenishing skin’s NMF is important because it becomes depleted as we age, are subject to exposure and use irritating topicals. A great benefit of glycerine is that it enhances the penetration of other key ingredients into the skin’s uppermost layers (stratum corneum) and at the same time has a cooling effect.
