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:
Wow Botanical Face Lifting Moisturiser is made with:
Plant oils - naturally packed with vitamins and omega oils to nourish, condition, rejuvenate and protect the skin.
Walnut oil - This is sourced locally from Granary Oils, Warwickshire. Here walnuts are 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. Walnut oil is great for nourishing maturing skin.
Macadamia oil - organically produced in Italy. Has a high content of plamitic acid which is vital to slow skin's aging process. As it is a fatty oil it also protects skin against elements.
Pumpkin seed oil - organically produced in UK. Has a lifting effect on skin.
Red Raspberry seed oil - produced in UK. Naturally high in Vitamins. Helps skin retain moisture.
Plant extracts and actives - give the skin that extra boost!
Pseudo-collagen, called this because it mimics the action of collagen in the skin and very importantly, it's from a non-animal source. It is actually extracted from yeast cells and is very effective as a collagen replacement. It help the skin retain moisture so giving it a more supple and 'plump' appearance.
Acmella flower extract has a remarkable ability to visibly firm and smooth the skin, so giving it a lifted appearance. It has been hailed by some as botox in a bottle! The extract is 100% natural and extracted from the buds which are harvested by hand so the plant is preserved. It is grown in South Africa by a co-operative of farmers in a bid to develop the local African economy.
Hyaluronic acid is 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 – Frankincense, Geranium and Patchouli, all of which are organically produced. Chosen to soothe, tone and balance maturing 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.
