8 Powerful Botanical Skincare Ingredients

Flatlay of plants, extracts and botanical skincare ingredients.

Plant power is by no means a revelation. In fact, plants have been used by indigenous people to treat wounds, heal ailments and even enhance beauty for thousands of years. Meanwhile in the western world, clinical studies are finally proving what indigenous people have known for millennia: how incredibly potent and powerful these botanical ​ingredients​ are. This, along with the global clean beauty movement, has created a worldwide interest in natural, botanical ingredients in skincare. But which botanical skincare ingredients are the most potent? And what do they actually do?

In this blog post, we’ll explore 8 incredibly powerful botanical skincare ingredients that are proven to enhance your skin, resulting in a plumper, firmer, more even appearance.

1) Aniseed Myrtle

Known for its liquorice scent, the aniseed myrtle was used by the Aboriginal people as a revitalising tonic for thousands of years. Today, we know that the aniseed myrtle leaf is a fantastic antioxidant and is rich in both vitamin C and vitamin E. This means it has anti-ageing properties and can protect the skin from pollutants.

2) Mountain Pepper

The mountain pepper leave is another powerful Australian plant that is rich in antioxidants. It also contains polygodial, a well-known active ingredient that works as an anti-inflammatory agent. This means botanical skincare products containing mountain pepper are perfect for combatting redness and sensitive skin.

3) Wild Rosella

Wild Rosella was traditionally used by Aboriginal people to treat wounds, ulcers and sores. Today, it is found in active botanical skincare thanks to its high concentrations of vitamin A, C and E – all powerful antioxidants that protect the skin from damage.

4) Kakadu Plum

This Australian super-ingredient has been used by indigenous tribes for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. It has powerful anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. That means that when applied to the skin, it can reduce swelling, redness and even acne. It also has anti-ageing properties and can protect the skin from environmental damage.

5) Australian Wattle

The Australian Wattle, or mimosa flower, has anti-inflammatory action thanks to a key component in the Watlle’s oil – Lupeol. Lupeol is one of the most potent active botanical ingredients used in skincare and also has antioxidant and anti-pigmentation properties.

6) Buriti Oil

The secret to buriti oil is beta-carotene, a type of plant pigment that is well-known for its anti-oxidant properties. It has been shown to prevent sun damage which, in turn, prevents wrinkles. Buriti oil also cools and soothes, which is perfect for tired-looking or aged skin.

7) Jojoba Oil

Jojoba works to form a protective barrier on the skin, locking in moisture and preventing it from dehydrating. It also has a high concentration of vitamin E as well as anti-microbial properties. This makes it perfect for acne treatment, wound healing and anti-ageing

8) Baobab

Baobab has the highest concentration of antioxidants of all superfoods – even matcha! This means that it is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient in botanical skincare. It also reduces redness, itchiness and dryness thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.
