Consumers have a desire to use products with ingredients that are raw, meaning they have not been placed through any unnecessary processing. Beeswax, coconut oil, aloe vera, and french clay are just a few examples of raw and untouched ingredients that add both value and usefulness to your products.
Aloe vera isn’t just for sunburn relief! It actually provides anti-inflammatory properties to reduce swelling and calm itchy skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. Aloe vera can even minimise dry skin and nourish with antioxidants.
Coconut oil has a particular fat composition that makes it a nourishing addition to hair products like conditioners, masks and treatments. A natural antifungal and antibacterial, these properties make coconut oil excellent for eczema and dermatitis and other itchy and irritated skin conditions.
French clay is a treasure trove of minerals like magnesium, calcium, and silica that absorb the impurities and toxins from the skin, making it the perfect choice for face masks, poultices, and mineral-based cleansers.
Beeswax has been used for thousands of years, it’s a versatile and non-toxic raw ingredient that has so many uses. When beeswax is added to creams, balms or lotions it creates a barrier on your skin to seal in moisture. Combined with coconut oil it helps stabilise formulations as coconut oil has a low melting point and beeswax is hard at room temperature.
