Gnarly Joe® Face Serum works over the medium to long-term by hydrating your skin at a deep-pore level, increasing skin suppleness and elasticity. This is assisted by the following key ingredients:
Jojoba Oil is a great natural collagen and even though it’s referred to as an 'oil', it’s actually a liquid plant 'wax', with properties that very closely resemble your natural skin oils (sebum) and is therefore harmonious and naturally balancing. Jojoba is high in Vitamins E and B-Complex and is a natural antioxidant, which helps the skin to look younger by boosting collagen production, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is especially important as we get older, because our skin loses elasticity as we age. The careful blending of nutrient-rich Argan and Jojoba helps restore your skins suppleness and replaces that elasticity, making your skin look younger and feel smoother.
Argan Oil is a superfood for the skin. Often referred to as 'Liquid Gold', it’s a nutrient-rich oil that's extracted from the kernels of the Argan Tree, which is native to Morocco. Argan Oil is particularly effective in both moisturising and hydrating the skin. It contains high levels of Natural Vitamin E and fatty acid which absorbs easily. Argan Oil contains high antioxidant levels, which helps give skin a youthful glow whilst reducing the visibility of wrinkles. Argan restores suppleness and elasticity, making your skin feel softer.
Gnarly Joe® liquid African Black Soap is derived from an ancient Ghanaian recipe which has been used for centuries. It's been proven to hydrate, nourish and moisturise skin in the driest of environments. It’s also an active acne and spot-fighting formula.
African Black Soap contains the finest 100% natural ingredients and is now gaining popularity throughout the rest of the world as it works in harmony with your skin and hair: No Sulfates, No SLS, No Parabens, No Detergents and No Synthetic Ingredients, and no artificial colour. African Black Soap is naturally brown and thin in viscosity, and immediately lathers into a rich, luxurious cream.
Extracted from the nuts of the African Shea tree by crushing and boiling, Shea Butter is rich in vitamins A and E (particularly helpful for damaged skin), and vitamin F, which is an excellent natural skin-rejuvenator. Cocoa Pod Ash gives African Black Soap its dark brown colour, and also provides a gentle exfoliant: The ash helps to smooth the skin, eradicating small bumps, blemishes and imperfections. Made up of medium chain fatty acids, this healthy oil helps reduce dryness and allows your skin to retain moisture. Finally, Coconut Oil hydrates skin, making it softer to the touch, whilst smoothing and improving texture.
Eye Serum: Grapeseed Oil contains high levels of linoleic acid, which cleanses and reduces clogged pores, allowing the skin to smooth out uniformly. It balances out and equalises dry and oily patches, leading to softer skin. The fatty acids in Grapeseed absorb easily into skin and provide a slight tightening which, with medium to long-term use, helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, crows-feet and wrinkles around the eye.
Jojoba is high in Vitamins E and B-Complex and is a natural antioxidant, which means that it helps the skin to look younger by boosting collagen production. In turn, this helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles under your eye. This is especially important as we get older, because our skin dries and loses elasticity as we age. The careful blending of nutrient-rich Grapeseed and Jojoba helps restore your skin’s suppleness and replaces that elasticity, making your skin look and feel younger.
Olive Oil acts as a natural antioxidant. This means it helps to prevent oxidation; a process that produces free radicals (harmful chemicals that can damage skin cells). Antioxidants have major health benefits to help skin look more youthful and glowing. Olive Oil contains Vitamins A, D, E and K, which helps combat damaged and dry skin. It’s also antibacterial, and is a great natural skin moisturiser.
Pomegranate Oil stimulates Keratinocytes, which are the major cells in the outer layer of your skin (The epidermis). By regenerating these cells, your skin can repair damage inflicted in the past, to reveal a fresher and more youthful appearance. Due to its high levels of ellagic acid, Pomegranate possesses powerful skin-moisturising qualities and helps slow down the oxidation of DNA (the process that’s responsible for ageing your skin).
