Calamansi is a citrus fruit, a hybrid 🤞🏻 between a mandarin and lemon, that is found in the Philippine Islands. Calamansi is gaining greater exposure in Asian markets, as it functions as a natural bleaching agent . It also contains a lot of Vitamin C (one of our personal favourites 💓). Calamansi is believed to give a shiny and silky appearance to hair as well, we love a multipurpose ingredient😏
Ghee is a clarified butter derived from cow’s milk that is rich in carbonyls, lactones, and free fatty acids. Ghee also has high amounts of linoleic acid, and less lactose than regular butter👍🏻
Avocado is a pear-shaped fruit that contains a mix of fatty acids that includes omega 3 and omega 6. Topical application of avocado itself has been found to give anti-inflammatory benefits to skin, help maintain a strong barrier function 💪🏼 , boost wound healing and also protect the skin from UV light ☀️ . Avocado oil extracted from avocado is very popular for dry skin, as it has has super nourishing properties.
Ah Hydrolats, I love hydrolats, and still remember Megan’s face when I first recommended them to one of our clients “WTF is that😱?”. Hydrolats are created during the distillation process of essential oil extraction. They contain the water soluble chemicals from the plant while essential oils contains the non water soluble chemicals . Therefore hydrolats are lower in intensity than essential oils, making them perfect for sensitive skin 👶🏼
