PLEASE NOTE: All natural products should be patch tested on a small area of skin to check for allergies first. This is even more important for people with known allergies. We hope you enjoy this beautiful feeling nut free cream we created especially for people with nut allergies that still want to use natural products.

|Aqua||When we were told that we have to call our purified water “Aqua” we thought they were kidding. But we can’t fight bureaucracy. So we aren’t trying to be fancy, but we do need to call our water “Aqua” sometimes.|
|Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil||Wonderfully healthy for the skin. So many benefits, it might be best to Google "Olive Oil Skin" instead.|
|Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM Organic Sulfur)||MSM is an Organic Sulphur compound which is present in every cell of the body. MSM has been proven to be a great skin softener and soothing compound for irritated skin.It is often used in many anti-ageing cosmetic applications. It is non-toxic and promotes healthy skin for all types.|
|Cetearyl Alcohol (Food Grade Emulsifier)||Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.|
|Squalene (Olive)||One of our favourite moisturising oils. It helps leave your skin moisturised and dewy. It is good for all skin types, including acne prone skin.
Our body produces a small amount of squalene, but the amount diminishes when we get older, starting in our twenties. Squalene is required for our skin to keep it moisturised and fight aging. It is also a unique antioxidant from olives that protects our skin from free-radical damages.
Since Olive squalene's composition is very similar to human sebum, it can penetrate our skin very quickly to help our skin to fight dryness. It enhances skin elasticity and moisture retention.
|Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil||This is exceptionally fine textured oil and has superb moisturising, emollient and anti-irritant properties. Prized for its ability to work wonders on dry aging skin.
Evening primrose oil is exceptionally high in fatty acids, especially in gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and is one of our favourite moisturising and soothing oils.
|Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E)||We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic.
Vitamin E has antioxidant action as well as free radical scavenger properties. Abundant assortments of researchers from diversified medical fields have theorized that this can slow the aging process. (Sources: Skin Pharmacology and Applied Skin Physiology, November-December 2001, and Free Radical Biology and Medicine, October 1999).
|Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera)||Most people already know the soothing benefits of Aloe Vera. We loved it before we made skin care, and we love it in our creams.|
|Allantoin||Comfrey has long been associated with soft,healthy skin. Allantoin is thought to help maintain healthy skin by encouraging the removal of dead skin cells. It is also promoted for preventing lines and wrinkles by assisting skin repair.|
|Piroctone Olamine||Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient. Non-irritating, it helps keep the cream free from bacteria and mould.|
|Polysorbate 60 (Food Grade Emulsifier)||A lot of our customers are small. So small in fact that they have sometimes mistaken the creams their mums or dad’s put on the nappy change table for food. So we always choose the most edible ingredients we can. Polysorbates are used in a lot of foods like Mayonnaise, Ice-cream etc to hold the cream and water together. We use them to help with the same thing.|
|Mel (Honey)||Honey is great for the skin and a natural anti-bacterial. However, we love it most for the balance it gives to the Apple Cider Vinegar which we also use. This makes for a beautiful smelling cream without fragrance.|
|Acetum (Apple Cider Vinegar)||We added this originally to lower pH to that of the skin. But we also love the smell of the cream with this and honey.|
|Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride (Guar Gum)||The Guar bean is a legume. We use a modified guar ingredient sometimes called Guar Silk. It helps make the skin nice and smooth after using our creams.|
|Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract||Cosmetic creams need to stay pure from yeast and mould. That is why ingredients like Parabens etc are used by a lot of companies. These work great at achieving their aim, but a lot of our customers are young children and this is why we aim to make our as food like as possible. We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hop Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural and edible anti-bacterial system into our creams.|
|Pyrus Communis (Pear) Extract||We have learned over the years that although Essential Oils can be great for some people, some people are highly sensitive. For this reason we tend to avoid them in our creams. We add Pear Extract instead. This is especially to help parents who use our creams on their children. They tend to be much more willing if they like how something smells.|
Generally people with nut allergies are not allergic to the oils, but to the protein. Even so, we understand that people with severe nut allergies may not want to be in the same room as a nut. This cream uses Evening Primrose Oil which is the next best oil after Sweet Almond Oil that we use in our other creams. We have also removed the Raw Coconut Oil to make it totally nut free.
