- Antarcticine: Sourced from Antarctica, it is a glycoprotein* that has demonstrated many unique benefits when used in skincare formulas. With superb dryness preventing properties whilst shielding against free-radicals. The organic substance thrives in the most extreme environmental conditions as a result of the cryoprotective (protection against freezing) properties of the molecule. *A glycoprotein is a macromolecule composed of a protein and a carbohydrate (an oligosaccharide).
- The Imperata Cylindrica: This plant thrives in dry, excessively saline environments and is native to many of Earth’s deserts, but is especially prolific in the Australian Outback. Imperata Cylindrica’s roots contain high concentrations of potassium which provides an immediate and lasting hydrating effect. It is believed that indigenous Australians of centuries past used the desert plant as a substitute for salt, due to its high saline content.
