FULLY UNDERSTANDING R/7'S FORMULA:

  • Butyrospermum parkii butter (shea butter): recommended for its protective properties against skin dehydration. Readily and durably absorbed by the skin.

  • Cocos nucifera oil (coconut oil): coconut oil is obtained by expression from the dried inner flesh of the coconut, Cocos nucifera. Coconut oil is high in protective antioxidants and antibacterial fatty acids. It suits all skin types and is light, non-greasy and rapidly absorbed giving deep hydration and conditioning to skin, scalp and hair. Research shows it can improve skin elasticity helping prevent premature ageing and wrinkle formation.

  • Sodium hydroxide: also known as lye, is an essential ingredient in the soap making process. When sodium hydroxide beads or flakes are mixed with a liquid, a lye solution is created. This solution, when mixed with fats and oils, will cause a chemical reaction called saponification: the lye and oil molecules combine and chemically change into soap and glycerin - sodium hydroxide will have then completely disappeared.

  • Rosa rubiginosa fruit oil (rose musk oil): considered an anti-aging ingredient because of its high Vitamin C content and its ability to boost skin regeneration and elasticity, it is also high in GLA, an essential fatty acid which helps to reduce fine lines and combat the drying effects of the sun, environment and climate. Other fatty acids found in high levels help healing and regeneration of the skin's cells.

  • Citrus aurantium leaf oil (bitter orange essential oil): orange essential oil is astringent, i.e. tightens pores to improve skin texture. It is also known to help the epidermis better withstand external aggressions and signs of ageing. Its vitamin C is known for activating microcirculation and toning the complexion, and for soothing dry, irritated skin as well as acne-prone skin.

  • CI 77491 (red iron oxide): iron oxides are gentle and non-toxic in cosmetic products placed on the surface of the skin, and just used for colouring purposes.

  • Rubia tinctorum root extract (common madder root extract): the roots of common madder contain a red colouring matter which is used for dyeing.

  • Tocopherol: isolated from vegetable oil, tocopherol is another name for vitamin E, a potent antioxidant or antiradical.

  • Geraniol: a fragrant oil component, geraniol is a natural compound of the essential oils of rose and palmarosa. Also present in essential oils of geranium, lemon and citronella.

  • Limonene: a fragrant oil component, limonene is naturally present in numerous essential oils (citrus rinds), pine oil and mint oil.

  • Linalool: an aromatic compound present in its natural state in the essential oils of lavender and lavandin, scots pine or peppermint, as well as many plant extracts.
