The bountiful protein of our youth, collagen is the key to a plump, glowing complexion. As we age, so too does collagen production1, but nature has a way of giving back, from seed to skin. With biodynamic* farm grown ingredients the natural alternatives to help promote collagen production.
FARM GROWN BENEFITS
Since 1985, we have been growing, cultivating and harvesting ingredients on our biodynamic* farm in the unspoiled Adelaide Hills, in South Australia. Biodynamic* farming is an organic farming method with a focus on enriching the biology of the soil and vitality of our plants. Free from harmful synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers, our biodynamic* farm grown botanicals are transformed into our signature skincare.
CLEAN SKIN CARE HEROES
Clean air, clear water, rich soil. Active farm grown plant extracts may help to improve skin elasticity and hydration, and help prevent the advanced signs of skin ageing.
A herb that grows in tropical and subtropical regions, Spilanthes extract is obtained from the seeds of plants grown on our farm. Traditionally, it has been prized for its healing properties2. Studies suggest that Spilanthes may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties2, both important in wound healing.
Horseradish is a perennial plant species also grown on our farm, its roots commonly used in traditional medicine by Ancient Greeks, Romans and physicians of the Middle Ages3. Horseradish root is also a source of antioxidants such as vitamin C3, an essential co-factor in collagen production4.
Both Spilanthes and Horseradish extracts can be found in our Nutri-Define range.
