We think it's valuable to know what you are putting on your skin, why it's included in the product and how it was produced:
Protect Pomegranate Botanical Moisturiser for Men is made with:
Plant oils - naturally packed with vitamins and omega oils to nourish, condition, soothe and protect the skin.
Rapeseed oil - This is sourced locally from Granary Oils, Warwickshire. Here oil seed rape is grown and cold pressed on the farm just a few miles away from where the cream is made. Visit www.granaryoils.co.uk to find out more about their oils and production. Rapeseed is good for nourishing and conditioning the skin.
Broccoli seed oil - organically produced in UK. Brightens skin and gives it a healthy glow.
Olive oil - organically produced in Spain, it is naturally high in vitamins (such as vitamin E, A and betacarotene) and other constituents (such as polyphenols and squalane) which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and moisturising properties. This makes Olive oil ideal for drier/sensitive or mature skin and also skin that is dry or sore after shaving. It is a fatty oil that is deeply conditioning and nourishing and protects skin from the elements. Ideal for male skin.
Marshmallow root (macerated in Sunflower oil) - organically produced in UK. Very soothing and calming on skin.
Plant extracts and actives - give the skin that extra boost!
Pomegranate extract - produced organically, is high in ellagic acid and polyphenols which encourage healthy skin growth and help the skin stay hydrated. Great on skin after shaving.
Rosehip extract - produced organically, is high in Vitamin A and omega 3 fatty acid and nourishes, soothes and brightens sensitive skin.
Hyaluronic acid - commonly known as the 'fountain of youth'. It binds water so hydrates the skin giving it fullness and volume, It is key in many products intended to make you look more youthful. The hyaluronic acid in this cream is of botanical origin, made by a yeast, glucose and soy bio-fermentation process. It is also Ecocert approved for use in natural and organic cosmetics.
Pure Essential oils – Cedarwood, Frankincense and Petitgrain chosen because they tone, balance and condition skin.
Vitamins – Antioxidants to promote healthy skin growth and keep lines at bay. The Vitamin E used is natural and extracted from non GM crops. Vitamin A doesn't occur 100% naturally but is derived from plant sources, usually palm oil. We are certain to only use Vitamin A derived from sustainable palm oil according to RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) certification.
Emulsifier – This is needed to 'hold' the oils and water together. In this cream it's derived from Olive oil and is silky on the skin and hydrating. It's also Ecocert certified for use in natural and organic cosmetics.
Preservative – Has to be included, otherwise the product would go mouldy in days. The one used in this cream is Ecocert certified for use in natural and organic cosmetics.
Ecocert is an international organic certification body for sustainable and ecological development.

RSPO is the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
They stress that sustainable production is the way to go, rather than boycotting palm oil altogether. Some very interesting reading and education.
