Why all natural ingredients are important in skincare for boys
When looking for a skincare product for boys, we want to know we're buying something that will be gentle on teenage skin.
It’s so important to know what we are putting on our skin, especially for growing boys where their skin is changing daily depending on hormones, diet, seasons and sport.
The ingredients we have chosen are natural, fruit enzyme based to fight bacteria and microbes and balance the skin’s Ph and oil levels. Our products are gentle enough to use twice a day even on sensitive skin. Most importantly of all they actually work!
So here are some of our signature ingredients and their benefits.
In our Clean Face gel cleanser for boys we have:
Papaya – it has exfoliating, repairing and hydrating properties. It also removes dead skin cells and provides hydration.
It is rich in Vitamin A, B, C and antioxidants, which help to fight off the effects of environmental damage. Papaya is know for it's anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties so is commonly used in natural products on the market – usually exfoliants and blemish treatments.
This ingredient offers those with oily and problematic skin an opportunity to rejuvenate and refresh.
Pineapple – is great for soothing sensitive & inflamed skin as it’s a natural anti-inflammatory. It also is an exfoliant to remove dead skin cells.
White Willow Bark – exfoliates the skin, removes dead skin cells and clears the pores.
Licorice root – is soothing to sensitive skin and helps even out skin tone & discolouration.
Lilli Pilli – is very high in vitamin C so a good antioxidant and skin protector.
Vitamin E – is an antioxidant that protects the skin and hydrates it.
Our moisturiser also has the enzyme extracts of papaya, pineapple, white willow bark and licorice, with the addition of these very important ingredients -
Aloe vera – it is very healing and soothing to inflamed & sensitive skin.
Rose Hip Oil – is a natural moisturiser, brightens the skin, fades scars & hyper pigmentation.
Kakadu Plum – is antibacterial, hydrating & full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that reduce the likelihood of blemishes. The Kakadu Plum fruit has the highest known vitamin C concentration of any single natural food source in the world.
Green tea – contains antioxidants which fight free-radical damage and is anti-inflammatory to improve the complexion.
Quandong – otherwise know as native peach, behaves like AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and exfoliates, provides a rich source of vitamin E, folate, magnesium, calcium which all reduce redness and hydrate the skin.
We use natural essential oils for their therapeutic benefits but also their fresh scents.
In our gel cleanser and moisturiser we use orange oil to balance skin oils & promote skin regeneration, lime oil is anti-microbial & anti-bacterial, bergamot oil is good for balancing oils and is good for blemishes, juniper oil cleanses & detoxifies the skin and helps heal acne.
We hope the carefully selected ingredients can give you peace of mind that you have chosen a natural & effective range for the growing boys in your life.
