THE GOOD STUFF
Organic Aloe Vera Juice
Aloe vera is quite an incredible medicinal plant full of benefits. Aloe Vera contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It also acts as a great conditioner and leaves hair all smooth and shiny. It promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair – it’s super gentle for little one’s skin and also a powerful cleaner!
Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, pink grapefruit can provide an array of benefits like softening skin tone and fighting off free radicals. We use it for it’s delicious scent and softness to the skin.
Organic Coconut Water
Beautiful and nourishing our organic coconut is rich in essential fatty acids and is a beautiful emollient to the skin.
Organic Avocado Oil
Avocado Oil is highly effective in smoothening up the skin stature thereby maintaining a silky skin tone. It is the high level of Vitamin E that prevents the skin from inflammations and itchiness thereby helping skin to maintain its health and softness. The antioxidants present in avocado oil is also found to be capable of soothing even sunburned skin. Research works have proved that avocado oil is highly effective against skin related diseases like eczema. We love it in our Sleepy Head Bath Wash as it’s super gentle on kids skin!
Organic Evening Primrose Oil
Evening Primrose Oil is extracted from the seeds of Evening Primrose flowers. The oil that is extracted is unrefined, and has high contents of essential fatty acids. Topically, it is also known for treating common skin complaints such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea and dermatitis. We love it as it’s super healing for skin and leaves hair silky and soft.
Organic Lavender Essential Oil
We are obsessed with organic lavender essential oil. We feature it in almost all of our products because it benefits almost every body system. Lavender essential oil smells divine and is an excellent tonic for the nervous system soothing and relaxing and supporting healthy nervous tissue function. Brilliant for anxiety, migraines, headaches, depression, nervous tension and emotional stress. Lavender is one of the three essential oils which most powerfully stimulate the growth of healthy new cells – Tea Tree and Neroli are the others. Lavender has numerous active constituents but above all, it is primarily the balancing and normalising action of the oil which makes it so beneficially versatile.
Organic Olive Leaf Extract
Olive Leaves have different antioxidants, all of which help protect the skin from environmental stressors. Olive leaf oil also has good levels of Vitamin A and E and is a beautiful and gentle emollient on the skin. Olive leaves contain several beneficial flavonoids, including quercetin, rutin, and kaempferol. We love how gentle and effective it is on keeping kids skin smooth!
Organic Calendula Extract
Calendula is a great healer! Because of calendars’ anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties it’s great for sunburn, rashes, insect bites and other mild skin issues. Calendula can also help soothe contact dermatitis from environmental causes!
Organic Chamomile Extract
Chamomile has so many powerful skin properties such as anti-inflammatory, anti fungal antiseptic and contains antioxidants. Additionally it is highly hypoallergenic and helps reduce skin irritants by neutralizing free radicals. We LOVE how it makes our Sleepy Head Bath Wash smell!
Organic Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil
Lemon myrtle oil is used for it’s astringent and cleaning properties on the skin. It has a high tannin content making it a beautiful skin cleaner. It also smells amazing!
A rose hip is the fruit of a rose. Reship extract contains polyphenols and anthocyanins, which are believed to ease joint inflammation and prevent joint damage. It’s also rich in vitamin C, which has antioxidant properties.
**Our Natural Preservatives**
Anytime you have water in a product you must have a preserving system. Otherwise the product grows bacteria and mould. To have a certified organic product the preserving systems we are allowed to use to pass the ACO (Australian Certified Organic) certification process is extremely limited. Without a preserving system we don’t have a product.
There are only two preservatives we are allowed to use and still be ACO certified. Potassium sorbate is approved by Australian Certified Organic (ACO) for use in organic skincare products. It is mainly used as a food preservative, but it can also be used in organic skincare products. Potassium sorbate inhibits moulds, fungus and only some bacteria, so it is best to be combined with another preservative. The potassium sorbate in our products is a natural organic compound. It is mild, non-toxic and non-sensitising. I would never be okay with this preservative being in foods and it would be my preference to not use ANY preservative in this product but that would be actually really unsafe and would put kids at more risk than not inhibiting the bacteria.
The second one we use has to legally be known by either the term ‘fragrance’ or ‘perfume’ Boy did I battle with this as I LOATHE those two words. However I researched the source thoroughly and I was comfortable with it’s use. This organic preservative is a broad-spectrum anti-microbial vegetable-based preservative sourced from almond and vanilla – which also acts as a preservative. It inhibits bacteria, mould and yeasts. It is approved for use in organic skincare by ACO. (Australian Certified Organic) Board and can only be known as ‘fragrance’ or ‘parfum’
Confusing, isn’t it? There are times when ‘fragrance’ or ‘parfum’ on a label is OK and other times that it is not OK when it represents something synthetic and nasty! In our product ‘parfum’ is a vegetable based natural preservative and not a synthetic one. You cannot have an Australian Certified Organic Product and use synthetic ingredients. Our Handshine has passed the Australian Certified Organic Certification Process and is an Australian Certified Organic approved product.
