At Whitfords, we use efficacious botanical ingredients that are gentle on sensitive skin. We prioritise ingredients that are organic, a waste by-product of other clean companies (such as strawberry seed oil), obtained via fermentation processes or are lab-grown (like micro-algae).
Astaxanthin: A remarkable antioxidant derived from Haematococcus pluvialis, a green algae that has a unique ability to adapt to its surroundings. When exposed to certain conditions, the algae transform and create Astaxanthin, taking on a beautiful red hue. Known for its potent antioxidant properties, Astaxanthin is ten times more active than beta-carotene. This exceptional strength translates to your skin, helping to neutralize harmful free radicals and providing extra protection against the effects of UV radiation and environmental pollutants.
Pineapple Enzymes: These natural enzymes work to break down proteins that cause surface build-up on the skin. This gentle process of disintegrating excess surface cells results in non-abrasive exfoliation, leaving the complexion looking bright, refreshed, and with an improved skin texture.

Add a splash of warm water to transform the oil into a milky emulsion. Massage again, allowing the transformation to lift and wash away dirt and grime. Rinse off thoroughly with plenty of warm water.
