Soraya did not set out to create Snowberry as a ‘100% natural’ skin care, she was inspired by uniting known natural bio actives with the advantages of clinically proven and scientifically-derived anti-aging compounds. Snowberry is created mostly from luxurious rainforest extracts such as Macadamia, Lingon and Cloud berry oils and New Zealand Native extracts like Kanuka Honey and Totarol. By combining the natural power of these with carefully selected anti-oxidants, enzymes and peptide complexes proven by modern skin science, Soraya has created skin care that is made from nature and boosted by science.
Kanuka Honey Extract
Crafted by the bees at Snowberry Gardens this rare honey extract is sourced from the New Zealand Kanuka Tree, also known as white tea tree a close relative to Manuka. Kanuka honey is a wonderful moisturiser and exhibits anti-inflammatory activity, making it an effective treatment for topical skin issues.
Totara Tree Extract
Totarol is a naturally occurring plant extract from heartwood of the Totara tree, a New Zealand native giant abundant in the North Island. These giant trees have been known to stand for over 1,000 years, their resilience attributed in part to the anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties of the wood. Totarol is sustainably sourced from deadwood, with no harm to living Totara Trees, and can be used in skincare as a natural preservative or to help neutralize free radicals linked to skin aging.
Macadamia Nut Oil
Macadamia nut oil is lightweight and nutrient-dense. Rich in essential fatty acids, powerful antioxidants and vitamins make it a superfood for your skin! This luscious hydrating oil has been shown to slow the signs of ageing and has also been used to improve the appearance of scars, sunburn and other minor skin irritations.
Cloudberry Seed Oil
Cloudberry is a vibrant orange superfruit that grows in the Nordics, withstanding up to -40 degrees celsius. The oil extracted from its many seeds is loaded with vitamin C, Omega 6, Omega 9 and vitamins A & E. These can help to maintain moisture and strengthen skin's protective barrier.
Lingonberry Seed Oil
Lingonsberry seed oil conatins exceptionally high amounts of antioxidants, plant sterols and essential fatty acids Omega 3 & 6. Helping to moisturize the skin, reduce wrinkles and improve elasticity.
Inca Inchi Seed Oil
Derrived from the seeds of the Inca Inchi, a plant native to the Peruvian highlands is a rich source of Omega 3 (alpha linolenic) fatty acids. These fatty acids help regulate oil production, keep skin hydrated and help keep skin elastic. Inca Inchi Oil is also contains anti-oxidants vital to healthy skin.
Plant Derived Squalane
Squalene actually occurs naturally in our skin as part of skins "sebum," which hydrates the skin. Age we age production declines. Which is why science is now encouraging the use of squalane oil as a potent anti-aging moisturiser. Plant derived Squalane from Olives, sunflowers, sugarcane helps preserve and maintain essential moisture, leaving skin exceptionally soft and smooth. It also powerful at fighting free radicals and reversing damage caused by the sun.
Vitamin EVitamin E is an oil based anti-oxidant that helps protect the skin from surface free radicals in our environment. Essentially, Vitamin E helps prevent the effects of air pollution which would otherwise accelerate signs of skin aging.
Copper Peptides are naturally occuring small protiens in the body. These proteins are composed of a small number of amino acids linked together. They are essentially the triggers that help skin replenish collagen levels. Skincare peptides found in facial moisturizers penetrate into the skin’s surface and are clinically shown to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is one of the most revered and hardest-working ingredients in skincare. Niacinamide delivers 5 main benefits including: improved moisture barrier, reduced appearance of large pores, fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots and regenerated surface skin.
