ORGANIC INGREDIENTS

At Lewin & Reilly, we believe provenance is key.

It’s the foundation to environmental sustainability, ethical trading and ensuring the utmost quality is delivered to you.

That’s why we focus on sourcing organic ingredients grown in New Zealand, Australia and the islands of the South Pacific, blending these into concoctions you will never want to live without…

Aloe Vera – Certified Organic

Certified organic freeze-dried aloe vera.

Aloe naturally contains polysaccharides which bind moisture into skin. It also has amino acids that increase suppleness. Aloe can penetrate 7 layers of human skin and does so 4 times faster than water.

Bentonite

Bentonite clay is superb at detoxifying. Upon contact with water, its electrical components change, allowing it to absorb toxins. It has a beautifully fine, velveteen texture and is prized for its ability to remove environmental pollutants and impurities.

Cacao Butter - Certified Organic (Theobroma Cacao)

Harvested in Vanuatu, our cacao butter grows naturally in the wild. Cacao butter contains anti-oxidants such as vitamin E that contribute to its long shelf-life of 2-5 years. It also has stearic acid, which helps skin retain moisture by providing an occlusive layer. Cacao butter has an exotic rich cocoa aroma, evocative of the islands of the South Pacific.

Cetearyl Olivate – Certified Organic

The first component of our emulsifier (the very thing that helps meld our oil and water components), cetearyl olivate is composed of cetearyl alcohol and fatty acids derived from olive oil. It’s a wax-like substance with ECOCERT approval for use in organic formulations. It helps to increase your skin’s barrier function against external elements, therefore preventing trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL).

Coconut Flavour – Certified Organic (Cocos Nucifera)

Coconut flavour is a proprietary concoction of beautiful smelling natural ingredients that evoke a tropical island hideaway. We blend it into our tonic, for that stunning coconut aroma.

Coconut Oil – Certified Organic (Cocos Nucifera)

Organic, cold pressed virgin coconut oil. Grown on Tanna Island, Vanuatu, where coconut trees thrive on family farms at the edge of the sea and the foot of a live volcano. Our supplier's coconut oil is 100% natural, 100% handmade, and created with a 100% renewable energy source – DME (Direct Micro Expelling). This process uses coconut shell and husk as fuel so that nothing goes to waste. They are also in the process of earning organic certification with Biogro NZ. Tanna Farm's oil is a far superior quality as it’s cold pressed from the fresh meat of the coconut, not the dried copra. This results in higher levels of caprylic and lauric acids (7.5 % more and 54% more respectively).

Coconut oil has exceptionally high levels of lauric acid, proven to fight bacteria better than benzyl peroxide; a commonly prescribed acne medication.

Distilled Water

Pure natural glacial water, fresh from the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Contrary to popular belief, water is not a ‘filler’ in skin care but an essential part of any well-made, moisture delivering product. Our combination of oils, melded together with this glacial born water help to seal moisture in, as well as attracting it from the atmosphere into skin. This results in a beautifully hydrated, dewey complexion.

Frangipani Essential Oil – Wild Crafted (Plumeria Alba)

A supremely precious oil evocative of the islands of the South Pacific. Frangipani's intoxicating aroma is one of only a few considered osmically balanced. Meaning that without blending it with other scents, it naturally has a top, middle and base note. Our frangipani is extracted without hexane, a solvent that can affect the flower's aroma; floral, buttery and with hints of pineapple, hay and coconut nectar.

Glycerin is a clear, gel-like substance that acts as a humectant; drawing water from the atmosphere to your skin. Ours is derived from rapeseed. It is also found naturally occurring in your skin, making it highly compatible with skin. Our glycerin is used during the extraction process of all of our plant extracts to help aid in preserving them.

Green & Red Native Seaweed – Wild Harvested (Codium Fragile Subsp. Novae Zelandiae and Aoedes Nitidissima)

Native New Zealand green and red seaweed have high levels of beneficial minerals and glycans. Glycans are sugar molecules on the surface of the skin that send messages to our skin's layers, telling them to produce collagen. Over time we see a decline in how effective they are at sending these messages, and our skin appears to lose elasticity. Replenishing inefficient glycans with healthy new ones found naturally in seaweed, ensures collagen production continues. Glycans also keep skin plump by attracting water to skin cells. Natural seaweed glycans are highly compatible with human skin, making them the ultimate choice for any skin care ritual.

Honey Myrtle Essential Oil - Naturally Grown/Spray Free (Melaleuca Teretifolia)

Grown in Western Australia by a family owned farm, our honey myrtle oil has a bright citrus top note with a beautiful warm undertone of amber/honey. Minimal sprays are used so that the environment is respected. The owners have an especial focus on nurturing a diverse array of Australian native trees and plants, to create rare essential oils. This oil is from the melaleuca variety of tree. Of this variety, it contains the highest levels of citral (up to 70%), shown to be anti-microbial.

Jojoba - Naturally Grown/Spray Free (Simmondsia Chinensis)

Jojoba is a desert plant that ripens under hot arid conditions. It thrives on the red soils of the Australian Outback. We use the golden variety, grown and cold pressed in Australia where no pesticides are used in the plantations. Jojoba is structurally similar to your skin’s sebum, meaning it can mimic the way sebum functions. It is non-clogging for pores, and technically speaking a liquid wax-ester, not an oil.

Kakadu Plum Extract – Certified Organic (Terminalia Ferdinandiana)

Sourced from the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and harvested by the indigenous Bardi people. Kakadu Plum has been used for generations by Indigenous Australian People in the Northern Territory for food and traditional medicine.

Kakadu Plum has the highest natural levels of vitamin C in the world: 3150mg/100g of the fruit, compared with rosehip 2000mg/100g, and even oranges 50mg/100g.

Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant. It helps skin to produce collagen, the building blocks of new cells. This makes skin smoother and more supple, reduces the appearance of pigmentation, and helps fights free radicals.

Sandalwood Essential Oil – Certified Organic (Santalum Spicatum)

A prime Australian-grown ingredient, prized the world over for its wonderful, full-bodied woody aroma that stimulates the olfactory senses. Ours is grown organically on the outer skirts of the Kimberley region, WA. It can benefit blemish-prone and sensitive skin due to its anti-inflammatory properties, and may help to balance an uneven complexion.

Australia now leads the way in terms of production. Sandalwood trees take up to 50 years to reach maturity, making it a very long term investment for farmers. The essential oil is extracted from the heartwood which only starts to develop at the age of 10, making this is a very expensive oil to produce, but well worth the wait.

Together with cetearyl olivate, sorbitan olivate forms a liquid crystal structure which enhances the glide of our moisturisers and cream cleansers. It also provides superior hydration by releasing up to 80% of its water, helping to reduce TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss).

Tamanu is a luxurious, bottle green oil that helps in reducing inflammation. It contains calophyllic acid & calophyllolide, fatty acids that are unique to this oil.

Ours is grown in Vanuatu, where the nuts are cold pressed after they have naturally fallen to the earth. This results in a sustainable environment, whilst contributing to the Ni-Vanuatu people’s economy.

Turmeric – Certified Organic (Curcuma Longa)

Turmeric has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that stem from curcumin; a natural component that gives turmeric its vibrant yellow/orange colour. It is a must-have ingredient for acne sufferers, as they tend to have higher levels of inflammation and low levels of anti-oxidants compared to those with clearer skin.

Human trials have demonstrated turmeric’s ability to help treat psoriasis, an often painful condition whereby the skin becomes dry, flaky and irritated. In fact, it has been proven to be a more effective treatment than the commonly prescribed drug calcipotriol.

Hand-blended into:

Purity Mask

Vitamin E (Tocopherol)

Vitamin E is a natural anti-oxidant, superb at halting oils from turning rancid. We use the natural variety of mixed tocopherols (alpha, beta, delta and gamma), as it is more readily absorbed by skin. When applied topically, vitamin E acts as an anti-inflammatory, helping to reduce redness and inflammation. It is also beneficial when applied post sun exposure at helping to reduce the appearance of pigmentation.

Zeolite

Zeolite is a mineral, and the form we use is a fine powder-like substance. The oldest deposits of zeolite in the world can be found in Australia. The conditions under which it formed, coupled with the age of the deposit (around 350 million years old) make for the finest, purest quality.

Zeolite helps to remove toxins by attracting them into its cage-like structure. It swaps these positively charged toxins for healthful, negatively charged minerals such as potassium. It's one of the best natural exfoliators available because it is so gentle on skin. A must-try!
