Learn something new today: What is the Skin Microbiome and why should we protect it?

Hello Star Seedlings, it's Ed here, tuning into something quite exciting: the Skin Microbiome.

The wonderfully natural colours of our products, green, ochre & amber, come from nature's palette. For example, the green from Neem, Spirulina and Moringa Leaf are star ingredients in our day cream Forest Salve, Moringa is a powerhouse botanical that contains high levels of antioxidants, including vitamins C and B3 (natural Niacinamide), that help promote youthful-looking skin. The amber colour in our night cream Moon Salve comes from wild botanicals like Jojoba, Turmeric, Baobab Seed and Black Nigella Seed. The last-mentioned, rich in B vitamins and amino acids, helps reduce inflammation and has shown promising results on treating eczema, psoriasis, and dark pigmentation spots. Last and not least, one of the most powerful anti-oxidant in the world, the red algae Astaxanthin. This glorious carotenoid, a red pigment created by the algae, is the star ingredient in our Star Glow Serum helping protect the skin against oxidation and sun damage.
