Organic Skin Care Products:
Only the finest exotic ingredients go into Rosa Y Fruta’s organic skin care products.
From white camellia oil to precious pearl, we’ve hand-selected the purest, most effective organic ingredients from around the globe. After carefully formulating each product, we package them in beautiful Miron violet glass to preserve the integrity of these delicate botanicals.
All our organic skin care products are free of parabens, dioxins, sulfate cleansers, synthetic colors, and fragrances, and are never tested on animals.
Our Primary Ingredients:
White Camellia: The basis of our collection, white camellia seed oil is the geisha’s secret to flawless skin and lustrous hair, and is know as the “beauty oil of Asia”. Extracted from the white tea leaf, this oil is rich in antioxidants, emollients, and soothing properties. It is one of the few oils that can be used on all skin types and will not clog pores (it actually helps clear your skin). Our premium certified organic white camellia oil is a cold-pressed, extra virgin oil for unrivaled purity.
Pomegranate: “The fruit of life”, pomegranate has been used in traditional medicine and beauty routines for thousands of years and is as healthy for your skin as it is delicious. It contains antioxidant polyphenols to prevent free radicals, natural anti-aging phytoestrogens to gently correct hormonal imbalances that cause wrinkles and dullness, and anti-inflammatory punicic acid for potent healing of sunburn, dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, and wounds. Our certified organic version is Co2-extracted to preserve its effectiveness.
Pearl: A symbol of elegance, pearl is a potent beauty tonic and is prized in Asian culture. The women of the island of Uta-Jima, Japan are still employed in the art of pearl diving. With 18 amino acids, crushed pearl repairs cells, grows new tissue, fight wrinkles, lifts, tightens, heals blemishes, fades discoloration, and enhances luminosity.
Sea Kelp: Harvested from kelp beds deeply below the surface of warm ocean waters, sea kelp is a treasured ingredient in skin care. Growing up to 20 inches a day, sea kelp is highly sustainable and environmentally friendly. Our sea kelp is specially fermented to break down the cell walls of the kelp, releasing its nourishing and moisturizing benefits.
Nilotica Shea Butter: The crème de la crème of shea butters, our Nilotica shea is a rare anti-aging shea butter harvested in the eastern region of Africa. Unlike waxy West African shea butter, Nilotica shea is soft and creamy. This organic, cold-crushed version enhances skin elasticity and softness, and protects and heals dry, damaged skin.
Kinetin: Very rare in skin care, kinetin is a plant growth factor that acts as a natural version of Retin-A. It fights free radicals, reduces wrinkles, improves sun damage, and shrinks surfaced capillaries.
Green Tea: Green tea is renowned for its numerous health benefits. In skin care, it acts as a powerful antioxidant to prevent free radical damage and protect the skin from UV radiation. You’ll see improved elasticity and fewer signs of aging.
Rose Jojoba Beads: Synthetic microbeads exfoliate for smoother skin, but are also damaging to the environment. Our all-natural rose jojoba beads are eco-friendly, and gently exfoliate without disturbing skin’s protective mantle.
White Willow Bark: White willow bark was used by Native American healers for centuries before Columbus landed. A natural beta-hydroxy acid, our pure white willow bark extract enhances cell turnover to improve wrinkles, roughness, and mottled pigmentation. Willow bark extract also contains salicin, a natural salicylic acid, to clear acne without the irritation.
Rosa Bourbonia: Rose traditionally represents passion and romance. It takes thousands of petals to make this precious aromatherapy oil, treasured for its ability to open the heart chakra and for its delicate scent. Our fair-trade rosa bourbonia essential oil is harmonically grown and extracted by master artisans in India. Rosa y Fruta is the only skin care company to import this precious rose oil in its purest form.
Wild Orchid: This beautiful flower only blooms twice a year. The exotic and fragrant wild orchid offers anti-aging and restorative benefits, making it one of the most prized botanicals among skin care products.
Stable Vitamin C: A potent antioxidant, vitamin C is popular in skin care for its ability to squelch free radical formation, mitigate the damaging effects of UV exposure, and brighten skin. It is one of the few ingredients clinically proven to boosts collagen production for anti-aging benefits. Unfortunately, vitamin C rapidly loses its effectiveness when exposed to the air. Our stable vitamin C does not oxidize and remains potent so that you experience all the benefits of this ingredient.
Olive Oil: This Mediterranean crop is unrivaled in its health benefits. Many of our products contain olive oil for its healing properties and natural anti-aging actives. Because it mimics your skin’s natural lipid structure, it acts as an environmental shield to reinforces skin’s natural barrier, prevent water loss, and enhance suppleness. It also forms a liquid crystal structure that promotes skin luminescence by mimicking Nature’s way.
Note: You may have heard to avoid ingredients with the word “PEG” in them. This is because PEG esters usually have been ethylated and contain carcinogenic 1,4 dioxin residue. You know us better than that! Our esters are derived from olive oil and there are no 1,4 doixin residues.
Natural Preservative: Rosa y Fruta uses an Eco-Cert approved natural preservative blend that is safe and effective. It is an expensive preservative system, but we feel it is the safest, and absolutely worth it.
Ingredients We Never Use:
We always avoid clearly harmful synthetic ingredients. However, there are also some natural ingredients that Rosa y Fruta specifically avoids:
Natural Vitamin E Oil: Derived from wheat, corn, and soy, this can be an allergen for many people. Rosa y Fruta sources an allergen-free vitamin E.
Algae Extract: Although algae such as carageenan can have a soothing effect on the skin, they are highly comedogenic- meaning they can clog your pores. The exceptions are sea kelp bioferment and Pepha-Tight: carageenan-free algae extracts that are non-comedogenic due to their low iodine content.
Grapefruit Seed Extract: Many natural skin care companies use this as a preservative, but tests show that it is ineffective.
Refined Stale Oil: Cosmetic grade oil, which is found in over 90% of skin care, is cheaply extracted is usually stale. This not only does little for the skin, but can actually contribute to free radical formation. We seek out only the highest quality, freshest, and safest certified organic ingredients.
