Black sand: a concentration of the power of the volcano. The black sand extract with volcanic origins contains minerals and micro-elements that make it a functional ingredient for the sunscreens: it helps the skin after the sun exposure, remineralising and toning it.
The Myrtus communis is one of the most common shrub of the Mediterranean scrub and, in Sicily, it grows spontaneously. From Black Myrtle’s leaves, we obtain an extract enriched with tannins and vitamin C. Its formulation makes the myrtle an active ingredient, invigorating and antioxidant for the skin.
*From organic farming
From Opuntia ficus indica seeds we obtain a precious oil, enriched with polyunsaturated fatty acids that give nourishment and elasticity to the skin. It was Christopher Columbus that imported prickly pear plants in Europe. Over the centuries, the plant was widespread in the Mediterranean and, above all, in Sicily where it became rapidly a symbol of the Sicilian identity. Its centuries-hold cultivation has developed thanks to the warm sun and to the salty air that wind brings into the hinterland. The plants shape and colour Sicilian landscape, protecting and preserving it from wind and erosion.
From grape seeds (Vitis vinifera) we have extracted an oil enriched with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, polyphenols and vitamin E. This oil has a nourishing, soothing and anti-ageing action and it helps to keep the skin radiant.
Sicilian mint grows spontaneous but also horticultural. Largely used for food preparation, it is recognizable thanks to its intense and characteristic aroma. In ancient times, it was used for its beneficial effects.The Mentha piperita essential oil, extracted from the leaves, has refreshing and invigorating properties.
