Our hero ingredient
The basis of all our products is mangosteen, a tropical fruit that we source from a select number of sustainable farmers in far north Queensland, Australia.
The magic of the mangosteen is that it possesses xanthones – plant compounds with healing properties that are unique to the fruit. Xanthones have been proven to be antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and to have antioxidant properties – a combination rarely found in just one ingredient in nature. When we discovered all of the outstanding things this fruit could do, we knew we’d found our skincare hero ingredient.
Our potent formula has a high concentration of mangosteen extract, meaning you’ll have to refill less often. Better for you and better for the environment.
Mangosteen is rich in vitamins and minerals. Naturally occurring vitamins in our hero ingredient include vitamins A, B-6 and C. Vitamin A helps to speed up healing, prevent breakouts and support the skin's immune system. It also promotes natural moisturising – giving skin a radiant glow. Vitamin B6 has been found to reduce sebum levels and limit the area of oily spots. And vitamin C aids collagen production and antioxidant levels in skin.
Minerals found in the mangosteen include calcium, magnesium and potassium as well as thiamin, niacin and pantothenic (in very small amounts). Calcium supports the skin's creation of sebum, protecting skin from drying out. Magnesium can help to protect your skin from external damage and potassium balances pH.
What does the mangosteen do for your skin?
The mangosteen holistically works for all skin types
Mangosteen has unique plant compounds called xanthones that protect your skin from harmful microorganisms which are often the cause of skin infections like acne and eczema. They do this by boosting the skin’s natural microbiome after cleansing.
Mangosteen extract has been scientifically-proven to stop inflammatory processes which means reduced redness and puffiness. It is also a natural healer that has been used to treat skin conditions like acne, eczema and rosacea among other health conditions for many years.
Enriching and protective
Mangosteen contains highly active anti-oxidants that aid the repair of sun-damaged skin. The antioxidants also protect skin from the stress of harsh modern environments, like exposure to air pollution, and replenish your skin with every application.
