Ingredients – what’s in it?
All ingredients are pure natural & vegan and all have a clear function, there is nothing in them that is superfluous. This may seem like a long list for a natural product at first glance. However, it’s all the ingredients that are really needed plus the so-called subingredients, such as all the components of the natural essential oils used. If you have a question about an ingredient, take a look at the FAQ or contact me. I like to be completely transparent.

It is rich in palmitoleic acid, vitamins A, B, E and minerals. It resembles human skin fat and is therefore well tolerated. Macadamia oil absorbs quickly into the skin and, unlike many other oils, does not leave an annoying fat film behind. Extra good for dry, flaky and sensitive skin. The skin becomes supple, smooth and richly cared for.
