Hero Ingredients Set To Take Over The Beauty Industry This Year

Hero Ingredients Set To Take Over The Beauty Industry This Year

For those seeking to introduce new intelligent ingredients into their skincare routine, we have identified four skin saviours that we predict will take over the beauty industry this year.

Gotu Kola

This ancient herb is rich in antioxidants, amino acids and polysaccharides, making it a highly powerful multi-tasking ingredient in age-defiance. Gotu Kola contains a high percentage of ginsenosides, a compound that contributes to collagen synthesis to assist with maintaining a smooth, youthful complexion. The high antioxidant content acts as a free radical scavenger to reduce lipid peroxidation of the epidermis, reducing cellular damage to skin.

Incorporate this age defying ingredient into your daily ritual that multi-tasks in age-defiance and protects skin from oxidative stress with our Metamorphis Multi-Vitamin Cream.

Pomegranate Seed Oil

Containing a concentrated nutrient density and a high antioxidant profile, this regenerative oil provides a rare and unique plant based source of omega 5 essential fatty acids known as punic acids that act as powerful anti-inflammatory agents and free radical scavengers to strengthen the epidermis, thus helping the resolution of wrinkles and fine lines. As a plant emollient, the oil provides nourishment and moisturising properties to promote the regenerate of the epidermis and instantaneously smooth skin.

Discover the regenerative and moisturising benefits of pomegranate seed oil in our Papaya + Pomegranate Facial Oil.


With perfect affinity to the skin and the ability to mimic the skin’s natural barrier, squalane forms a natural component of sebum. Derived from the fruit olive, its antioxidant properties quench free radicals associated with UV radiation, aging and inflammation, thus reducing damage to the skin. With a high ability to penetrate the skin, it deeply hydrates and softens the skin to increase skin elasticity. Sometimes referred to as an oil-less oil, squalane is non-comedogenic making it excellent for individuals who suffer from blocked pores, oily skin and breakouts.

Experience the benefits of this skin identical lipid in our Elemental A+C+E Serum, which contains a vegan, vegetable derived form of squalane.

Panax Ginseng

This incredible plant compound rich in polysaccharides, amino acids and bio-minerals offers the skin an array of cellular restructuring and energising properties. Ginseng is a rich source of polysaccharides, which are recognised for their ability to accelerate the skin’s immune response to free radicals, a primary cause of fine lines, hyperpigmentation and dehydration. This powerful botanical also supports the biosynthesis of collagen and elastin, the tiny fibres of protein that ensure our skin bounces after making facial expressions. Over time elastin fibres become less flexible, causing wrinkles to emerge. However, this hero ingredient has been shown to prevent them from becoming rigid.

For those seeking to introduce this ingredient into their routine, our Green Tea + Ginseng Facial Oil combines hydrating plant oils with the antioxidant powerhouses of green tea and ginseng to promote smoothness and restore elasticity to fatigued skin.
