MATAHARI, translating to Sun, is a youth-preserving botanical facial oil. It contains superstar ingredient Prickly Pear from Morocco which has long been prized for its anti-aging properties. The challenging climate in which Prickly Pear grows stimulates the fruit to produce potent, nutrient-rich oils. It contains 150% more vitamin E than Argan oil.

Scent Profile: natural, earthy herbaceous scent with notes from passionfruit seeds, rosehip seeds and helichrysum/immortelle flower. Contains no fragrance or perfumes.
Increases suppleness, brightens the complexion, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps with hyperpigmentation, restores skin to uncover a radiant, youthful glow.
Passionfruit Seed/Maracuja: is a favourite in South America because of its excellent antioxidant properties. The Vitamin C along with lycopene are protective for the skin against environmental stressors, sun damage, pollution and collagen damaging free radicals.
Rosehip Seed: our Rosehip seed oil is virgin, organic and unrefined. This retains its characteristic bright orange complexion and the full benefits of the plant. Rosehip seed oil (in the right ratio) is great to help regenerate skin, even out skin tone and improve the appearance of scars and wrinkles. Although, you never want to use 100% Rosehip in a formulation as it may aggravate certain skin conditions.
Sea Buckthorn: is known in Tibetan cultures as "Life Oil". It has close to 200 bioactive properties and has been used in Asian medicine for centuries. Sea Buckthorn is rich in Omega 3, 6, 9 and contains the elusive Omega 7; which stimulates the regenerative processes in the epidermis. This oil also contains 15x more vitamin C than oranges and 3x more vitamin A than carrots.
Helichrysum: also known as Immortelle or Everlasting, is one of the world's most effective essential oils for aging skin. Much like Prickly Pear, Helichrysum grows organically in challenging climates where only rare plants thrive. It is also nicknamed Everlasting because the flower retains its bright yellow colour even when dried. Immortelle's main property is its ability to heal. It aids in skin rejuvenation, wound/scar healing, repairing sun damage, reducing the appearance of fine lines and more. This oil has an intense herbaceous aroma and is said to hold healing emotional properties.
