The skin looks better nurtured and softer, improving its youthfulness, elasticity as well as its overall appearance.
Avocado oil has high levels of Vitamin A, D and E, making it highly nurturing for the skin.
It works anti-inflammatory, soothing and protecting the skin against infections and it is highly hydrating.
Furthermore, Avocado Oil can smooth the look of wrinkles and diminish blemishes thanks to its antioxidant, regenerative capacity. As an ingredient in cosmetics, it adds an astringent property. This means that it causes the contraction of skin cells and other body tissues, which makes the skin appear less oily.

Oat Extract

Oats have a long-standing tradition in Europe as a source of food product. The crop needs a lot of water which makes Denmark with its often rainy weather a perfect place for growing oats. Besides having many nutritional health benefits, oats also offer numerous nurturing properties for the skin. They have a high concentration of silicic acid and minerals, work as an antioxidant, smoothen the skin and moisturize it

Bilberry Extract

The wild bilberry is not to be confused with the cultivated American blueberry variety that we mostly find in supermarkets. Although both have a good taste and health benefits, we only use the common Danish bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) as a signature ingredient from our home country. Bilberries offer various health benefits such as being antioxidants and anti-inflammatory.
