So read on to find out more and get ready to fall in love with their natural goodness.

Aloe vera: Your multi-miracle plant

There’s no doubt you are familiar with this wonder plant. While it plays a key role in many of our products, we can’t claim credit for discovering this versatile plant. In fact, it has been used for centuries thanks to its medicinal and healing properties.

Originating from the Arabian Peninsula, but found around the world today, Aloe vera is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that nourish and hydrate your skin and hair, keeping them healthy and strong. If you’re looking for a natural way to improve your skin and hair health, consider having aloe vera in your self-care routine.

Betaine: Your true water supplier

This amino acid, derived from plants and naturally occurring in the body, is like a guardian angel for your skin and hair. It draws water into your skin, leaving it hydrated and plump. Known to be even less irritant than pure water, it's also a perfect calming agent for your skin! It helps to reduce inflammation and redness, while also promoting the healing of damaged skin. Additionally, it hydrates and conditions your hair, leaving it looking shinier and fuller.

Another trick up the sleeve of betaine is its anti-aging properties. It helps to stimulate collagen production, which is essential for maintaining the skin's elasticity and firmness

Squalane: Your anti-aging ally

Speaking of anti-aging, there is another natural ingredient that works wonders – Squalane, naturally-occurring oil in the skin's sebum. As the body's production of squalane decreases with age, using squalane oil can help replenish lost moisture.

It's a fantastic emollient that leaves your skin feeling hydrated and nourished, without any greasy residue. Additionally, squalane controls skin oil production and combats skin-damaging free radicals that lead to signs of aging. With a full pack of benefits, squalane is one of our secret ingredients that keep your skin looking youthful and radiant.           

Another key benefit of squalane is its ability to deeply hydrate and moisturize the skin. It is a lightweight and non-greasy oil that is easily absorbed by the skin, making it an ideal ingredient for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin.

Hempseed Oil: Your omega-rich natural protector

Yes, you guessed it right. Hemp seed oil comes from the cannabis plant. But with a content of less than 0.3 percent of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), if you wonder whether you can get high off of hemp seed oil, the answer is no. You can even eat it. Hemp is a versatile plant with a history. It was first used 50,000 years ago when it was spun into usable fibre. It’s come a long way since and is making waves in the personal care industry for its numerous benefits. 

This lightweight, yet powerful oil is high in omega acids 3, 6, and 9, all of which help repair the skin barrier, trap moisture inside, nourish the skin, and form a protective shield from environmental stressors. It's also great at staving off inflammation and soothing irritation. So, look for skincare products that leverage this multitasking performer.

Jojoba oil: Your natural oil-balancing friend

Where do we start praising jojoba oil?! It's a natural ingredient that has been used in skincare for centuries, and for good reason. Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant, which is native to the southwestern United States and Mexico.

Similar to sebum, an oily substance produced in the sebaceous glands, this unique ingredient mimics your skin's natural oils and helps smooth dry skin and reduce flaking. With its antimicrobial, antioxidative, and anti-itching properties, it is also an excellent choice for sensitive skin. For a non-greasy moisturiser that won't clog your pores, jojoba oil should be on top of your list.

Hyaluronic acid: Your hydration powerhouse

When it comes to continuous skin hydration, few ingredients can measure up to Hyaluronic acid. A key trick in its toolbox is that it can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, which helps to improve skin elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is also able to penetrate the skin's surface layers, which means that it can provide deep hydration and nourishment.

Another benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it can help to improve the skin's texture and tone. It promotes cell regeneration and collagen production, which can lead to smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

This hard-working ingredient doesn’t stop there and gives your hair and scalp a burst of energy as well. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the hair and scalp and reduces frizziness. In addition, it helps retain the proper balance of lipids, humectants, and proteins required for healthy hair.

Why you can't afford to miss these ingredients in your personal care! 

Well, they're simply the personal care equivalent of your morning coffee. All these six ingredients play a key role in the NET/ZERO natural blends to moisturise, nourish, soothe, and protect your skin and hair.  So if you want to integrate them into your routine, give a try of one of our top performers for your face, body, hands, or hair.
