Native to Central and South America, ucuuba butter is a natural butter cold pressed from the seeds of the ucuuba tree and resulting butter is often brown to yellow in colour. It is known to have anti-aging, anti-
inflammatory and antiseptic properties and can be used to help moisturise and tone dry & mature skin
Commonly used in Asian cuisine for its flavour and colour, turmeric also a common ingredient in traditional skincare applications. Rich in essential oils such as termerone, curlone, curumene, cineole, and p-cymene, turmeric is also high in antioxidants such as curcumin. This yellow root makes for an effective aid in combating acne and assist in rebalancing skin.
Packed with anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols and essential oils like zingerone, shogaol, farnesene, and small amounts of β-phelladrene, cineol, and citral, the humble ginger rhizome has been in use for centuries for its anti-inflammatory, carminative, anti-flatulent, and anti-microbial properties. It can help prevent damage from free radicals while detoxifying the skin and then reinvigorate it.
Lemongrass, a herbeceous grass, is commonly found in South and East Asia and is rich in not only folic acid but also pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) and thiamin (vitamin B-1). Its primary chemical compound is citral or lemonal which has strong anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties (it helps to ward off bacteria and other nasty bugs!). Lemongrass oil is often used in massage theraphy as a muscle and skin toner.
Another rhizome that is common in Asian cuisine, galangal is rich in healing and detoxifying compounds such as beta-sitosterol, galangin, emodin and quercetin. Because of its antibacterial properties galangal has been commonly use to revigorate skin tissues and heal skin infections (such as eczemas). It makes for a great antiseptic and cleanser as well.1 likes
