Now, here’s a word that’s often thrown around in the natural skincare world! If you’ve ever wondered, an active botanical is an ingredient in your skincare product that targets specific skin concerns. In the Oma Organics world, it is a “plant” that contains an active ingredient that targets skin concerns. These are ingredients that have been proven (with data behind them), to be effective at improving the skin in some way. Our products contain several active botanicals like;
Baobab powder, rich in Vitamin C to improve signs of ageing (present in our Brightening Baobab mask);
Willow Bark extract, with salicin to help fight acne and improve skin texture (present in our Resolve System) and;
Turmeric which contains Curcumin, a proven anti-inflammatory that not only neutralizes free radicals (highly reactive, unpaired atoms or molecules that attack healthy cells) but also boosts your body’s own antioxidant enzymes to soothe and calm skin (present in our Dew Serum)
Raw ingredients found in nature, potent and effective at targeting skin concerns, and often without the side effects of their lab created counterparts. We say every ingredient serves a purpose, and we mean it. No fillers, no toxins, no artificial ingredients, just clean skin food, derived from nature. Because it’s all GOOD within!
