Hops Extract (Humulus lupulus)
This herbal extract comes from the pinecone-like fruit of the hop plant and has astringent and toning properties.
Horse Chestnut Extract (Aesculus hippocastanum)
This grand tree is easily identified by its distinctive leaves and conkers which are prized by children. Its use was first documented by herbalists in the 1500’s and extracts of the seed have astringent and stimulating properties.
Hazelnut Oil (Corylus avellana)
In folklore the hazel tree is considered to have magical powers. The tree is valued for its wood, twigs and nuts. Hazelnut oil is made from pressed hazelnut kernels. This light oil is used in aromatherapy massage and is said to be easily absorbed by the skin leaving it soft and smooth.
Haitian vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides)
Sourced from Haiti, the leading producer of vetiver, this light, golden oil boasts a dry, woody scent with earthy, smoky and nut inflexions. It is uprooted by hand after 1 year and taken to a local factory, where the roots are dried and cleaned before being steam distilled. Our fragrance house has initiated a new programme to improve traceability and environmental practices from root to oil, while also improving vetiver quality in the long term and supporting local communities.
