Bridget’s education and experience as a naturopath led to formulations based on a combination of traditional use (history) and research (clinical studies). Sustainability is a core value at Clémence Organics and so ingredients are never ‘faddish’, nor are they on any threatened or endangered species lists, but rather plants which have been used effectively for skin care for centuries.
Each formula has at its core a key ingredient, as illustrated on the packaging:
Rosehip is at the core of our facial range due to its potent rejuvenative and anti-ageing properties. These benefits are due to a combination of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids, as well as high levels of vitamins A, C and E. Vitamin A in particular in indicated for ageing skin due its ability to convert to the highly prized retinol. Rosehip helps promote a richly moisturised complexion with increased skin elasticity and even skin tone.
Lavender is a key ingredient in the body range due to its long history of use as a relaxant, both mind and muscle. It was also chosen for its ability to promote new cell growth, encourage healing of burns and wounds, and soothe eczema and psoriasis.
Jojoba is essential to our lip products because of its ability to provide long-lasting moisture. Jojoba is also excellent for soothing inflamed skin due to a combination of vitamins A, D and E, which provide both anti-inflammatory and healing benefits.
Calendula is a key ingredient in the baby products due to its potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits. This assists in reducing skin inflammation, soothing irritations and promoting wound healing.
Just as important as what is in our products, is what is not. Here is a list of ingredients you will NEVER find in any of our products:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Ammonium Laurel Sulfate (ALS)
