Aging gracefully with radiant skin has never been easier! This product contains silk peptides, so is not considered vegan.
Orange blossom water: This precious hydrosol helps balance, tone, reduce pore size, soften and smooth the skin, reducing redness and irritation by helping balance pH with it's natural acidity. Restores vitality and suppleness to the skin and is a sensorial delight.
Squalane (Sugar cane derived): A super-lightweight, non-greasy, quick absorbing, saturated oil, formed when squalene* undergoes a hydrogenation process, which turns it into a stable, fully saturated oil with a long shelf life called squalane. The squalane used herein, is derived and created from sugar cane squalene.
Squalane is excellent for preventing irritation. Clinically proven to be non-irritating, this non-comodogenic oil, it is particularly excellent for people with sensitive skin conditions, including acne, as it an help regulate excess oil production and is soothing for cracked, chapped, eczema prone skin too. A naturally antibacterial oil, squalane helps fight bacteria on the skin and protect from oxidative damage, caused by free radical that can accelerate age spots and premature aging.
*squalene is found in olives, sugarcane, wheat germ, rice bran, palm trees and shark liver. The squalane used in Kavana products, is entirely derived from sugar cane squalene.
Silk peptides: Hydrolized silk peptides are great for graceful aging because the large amounts of hydroxyl amino-acids they contain are known for their important role in regulating moisture content of the skin and water binding process. Serine in silk, helps form a protective barrier on the skin and lend their characteristic silk-like texture to this facial cream.
Allantoin: Allantoin is widely considered to be a versatile, safe, and effective skin care ingredient with many different benefits including smoothing, softening, and healing the skin, promoting the shedding of outer layers of the epidermis, cellular replication and healthy tissue growth. Most famously derived from comfrey's root mucilage, this emollient can also be chemically synthesized.
Panthenol/ Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): Panthenol/ Vitamin B5: This ingredient is a natural form of Vitamin B5 (aka pantothenic acid) and can be found in plants and honey! It acts as a humectant and emollient, that helps attract and hold moisture, and offers anti-microbial properties, helping to counteract bacteria and attract and hold moisture, helping skin appear softer and smoother.
Unrefined Mango seed butter (Mangifera Indica): An anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant packed, regenerative, protective, softening, soothing and moisturizing butter, this non-greasy, lightweight butter contains essential fatty acids and vitamins A,C, and E, making it a wonderful choice for dry and mature skin. Used topically, mango butter’s soft and long lasting emollience nourishes skin and boosts its elasticity as well as its suppleness. Reducing the appearance of fine lines and dark spots, it helps tighten skin for a firmer appearance.
Its high vitamin content protects skin against harsh environmental stressors and damages caused by overexposure to harmful UV radiation making it excellent for cold, weather conditions. The myriad benefits of this rich and nourishing, light orange bweight butter can even be beneficial to those with eczema and psoriasis.
Phyto-5 is a blend of extracts from five, healing plants that have been used for millennia to help heal, protect and restore the skin. Wildcrafted in Ontario, Canada*, these plants benefit the skin most by acting in concert to reduce trans-epidermal water loss, boost collagen, calm inflammation and deeply nourish the skin.
*With the exception of rosehip seed oil from Chile.
