Ingredients Glossary

All beauty and skincare formulations are created using botanical, active, functional and essential ingredients. Our philosophy is to use the fewest number of ingredients at effective amounts to deliver the best possible results and the least impact on our environment.

Botanical Ingredients

A botanical ingredient is a constituent of a personal care or cosmetic product that originates from plants such as herbs, roots, flowers, fruits, leaves or seeds. Many botanicals have incredible healing and rejuvenating properties that work wonders for a range of skin issues.


A natural ingredient rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Its moisturising properties help to nourish and hydrate the nails, reducing dryness and brittleness. It also has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties which help to prevent infections and soothe irritation, promoting overall nail health.


Rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, its nourishing and moisturising properties can help protect and condition the nails reducing the risk of brittleness. Its antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties help to prevent infections and promote healthy nail growth.


Active Ingredients

Active ingredients are the ingredients contained within skincare products that actually work to address the skin concern the product is meant to target. They are the ingredients that have been scientifically proven to actually have the desired effect, meaning the product will do what it says it will.


A UV absorber that helps to protect nails from harmful UV radiation, which can cause damage, discolouration, and fading of nail polish. Its antimicrobial properties help to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi.


A popular ingredient in nail care products due to its moisturising properties which helps to hydrate and nourish the nails preventing dryness and cracking, as well as promoting healthy growth.

Functional Ingredients

An ingredient that does not affect the appearance of the skin but is necessary for product formulation. This includes bases, emulsifiers, emollients, fragrances, etc, which are vital to creating a beautiful texture and sensory experience. All our functional ingredients are vegan and non-toxic.

Water has been referred to as 'the universal solvent' in cosmetics. In combination with emulsifiers, water can be mixed with 'thicker' ingredients, such as butters and oils, to facilitate the formation of emulsions used to create creams and lotions. [COPIED FROM GOOGLE]

Essential Ingredients

An ingredient that does not affect the appearance of the skin but is necessary for product preservation. You'll find most skincare products are formulated with more than one type of preservative to achieve broad spectrum activity. All our essential ingredients are vegan and non-toxic. They create an environment that isn’t conducive 
for bacteria to thrive, rather than killing them.
