Ylang-ylang is a yellow, star-shaped flower that grows on the cananga tree (cananga odorata). This tropical species is native to countries surrounding the Indian Ocean including India, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and parts of Australia. 

Ylang-ylang’s heady aromatic scent is fruity, flowery and rich, and therefore is used to make a variety of essential oils, via steam distillation. It’s nourishing and moisturising and can help tackle infections while its sebum-balancing, skin-renewing and moisture-retaining properties make it a powerful aromatic in skincare.

A tiny flower, known as the blue tansy (tanacetum annuum), has earned a lot of positive press in recent years, making it a popular ingredient in products such as acne creams and anti-ageing solutions. Originally a wild-harvested Mediterranean plant, blue tansy (actually yellow) is cultivated mainly in Morocco.

In skin care, the flowers and stems are gathered and steam-distilled. In the distillation process, one of the chemical components of the oil - chamazulene - is released. When heated, chamazulene turns deep blue.

Blue tansy has been clinically proven to help diminish the look of lines and wrinkles, smooth skin texture, increase glow, and firm, soften, nourish and moisturise. The camphor concentration in blue tansy oil has been shown to help repair damaged skin. That’s a lot of benefits for one tiny flower…

A rose is a woody perennial flowering plant of the genus ‘rosa’ in the family ‘rosaceae’ or the flower the plant bears. Garden cultivation of roses is thought to have begun in China around 5,000 years ago yet during the Roman period, roses were grown extensively in the Middle East and used as confetti at celebrations, for medicinal purposes and as an ingredient in perfumes.

Rose is bursting with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals and its oils are fantastic for tackling dry skin and soothing itchiness. It also offers astringent properties, making it an excellent combatant of acne, redness and inflammation. Rose’s antioxidants help to strengthen skin cells, supporting the regeneration of skin tissues and keeping the skin’s moisturise barrier strong. They also neutralise free radicals (providing anti-ageing benefits to the skin). Delicious and nutritious (for the skin).
