Orange Flower Botanical Body Wash™

Naturally active ingredients

Oat Extract (Avena sativa)
Oats boast excellent emollient and skin-soothing properties due to the presence of avenanthramides, compounds that have a range of activity against irritated skin. We source our oats from the United Kingdom, where the extract is produced through extraction of dried oats.
Patchouli Essential Oil (Pogostemon cablin)
Patchouli has reviving and stimulating properties and is used by aromatherapists to help soothe skin and help calm stress. It is even reported to be a mild aphrodisiac! The sweet, spicy, heady odour of patchouli makes it a very popular fragrance ingredient.
Tree moss extract
Tree moss is the name given to the absolute produced from lichens collected from a variety of trees. It is a dark coloured oil with a woody, earthy odour that is used in fragrance blends. It is also a useful natural fixative in perfumery, this means that it is used to help maintain the fragrance of a blend for a longer period.
Sweet Orange Essential Oil (Citrus aurantium dulcis)
Orange is a member of the large family of citrus fruits and has a characteristic aroma that cheers and uplifts the spirits.
Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
This comforting, calming oil has been widely used since the late 16th Century. Renowned for its wonderful, calming aroma, recent research has shown the benefits of this versatile oil help induce a restful night’s sleep. We source our lavender from the Mount Ventoux area of France and Bulgaria, for their superb quality.
Geranium Essential Oil (Pelargonium graveolens)
Adored for its fresh, floral rose-like fragrance, we source our evergreen, perennial geraniums mostly from Egypt, where our pure essential oil is steam-distilled from the branches the plant.
Palmarosa Essential Oil (Cymbopogon martinii)
Palmarosa is a flowering grass that is native to India and is in the same family as Citronella and Lemongrass. The essential oil is distilled from the freshly dried leaves of the plant. It has a fresh, floral, sweet rosy scent similar to Rose Geranium and is often mistaken as such. Aromatherapists have used palmarosa oil for stress, nervous tension, grief and anger.
Orange Flower Water (Citrus aurantium v. amara)
Renowned for its delicate citrus fragrance, our orange flowers are sourced from Spain, where the exquisite floral water is produced as a by-product of the steam distillation process for creating neroli essential oil.
Glycerin
The glycerin we use is always vegetable derived. It is a humectant (attracts water), drawing atmospheric water onto the skin to aid hydration.
Tonka Bean Absolute (Dipteryx odorata)
Tonka bean absolute is produced from the beans of a large tree, native to South America, which grows over 120 feet high. Tonka bean has a soft sweet odour reminiscent of hay and coconut and is often used as a natural fixative in perfumery; this means that it is used to help maintain the fragrance of a blend for a longer period.
Yarrow Extract (Achillea millefolium)
Traces of this native European herb have been found in Neanderthal burial caves, suggesting its usage goes back 60,000 years. Yarrow was for centuries an indispensable medicinal herb. Native American tribes believed it could cure everything from sore throats and toothache to indigestion and bowel complaints. We use it for its astringent and soothing properties.
May Chang Essential Oil (Litsea cubeba)
May chang is the common name given to the fragrant essential oil from a small tropical tree native to China. The essential oil is produced from the tiny fruits, which resemble peppercorns. It is used as a perfumery ingredient for its sweet citrus odour which is similar to lemongrass but more refined.
Soap Bark Extract (Quillaja saponaria)
A gentle, yet effective natural cleanser, soap bark contains saponins, which are detergent compounds found in certain plants that foam when mixed with water. We source our soap bark extract from wild-harvested raw materials obtained from FSC certified forests in Chile.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol)
This antioxidant helps protect skin against free radical damage caused by pollution and the sun’s radiation. We only use premium natural source vitamin E which is up to three times more potent than the synthetic variety.
Lavandin Essential Oil (Lavandula hybrida)
Less floral than lavender, but still loved for its distinctive, herbal fragrance and calming properties, Lavandin yields between five to ten times more oil than lavender. Our pure essential oil is obtained by steam distilling the flowers and stalk of the cultivated shrub.
Rosemary Extract (Rosmarinus officinalis)
Used for its antioxidant properties, we source our rosemary from Spain, where the extract is filtered from the needle-shaped leaves of the plant.
