Essential Oils

Elaine Kennedy

 

As the owner and producer of Hawthorn & Rose, it is incredibly important to me that that my customers are fully informed in terms of what you are putting on your skin. A previous post, Our Ingredients - No nasties, explained about INCI names and their purpose. As well as requiring ingredients to be listed on product labels by their INCI name, some of the natural components of essential oils must also be listed. That’s because some of these natural components are known allergens which can cause reactions in susceptible people. It is important to remember that even the mildest natural ingredients can cause sensitisation in certain people and we recommend using a small amount of product for 24 hours to check for any reactions. However, the quantity of essential oils used in our products falls well within safe usage recommendations and our recipes have been carefully formulated to produce mild products.

Our Ingredients - No nasties

All Hawthorn & Rose products are made from 100% natural ingredients. However, a quick glance at our product labels may make you doubt this and you may struggle to recognise any of the ingredients listed. Thats because ingredients must be listed by their INCI name on all products. INCI names were introduced to ensure that consumers have a consistent means of identifying the contents of cosmetics using a common language. So for example Shea Butter will be listed as Butyrospermum Parkii. To add to the confusion, the components of essential oils must also be listed. Therefore, while Lavender is listed as Lavandula Angustifolia, its components Geraniol, Limonene and Linalool must also be listed.

To make it easier, here is a list of our most commonly used ingredients and their INCI names:

 
 

Butters & Oils

Shea Butter - Butyrospermum Parkii

Apricot Kernel Oil - Prunus Armeniaca Kernal Oil

Wheatgerm Oil - Triticum Vulgare Germ Oil

Mango Butter - Mangifera Indica Seed Oil

 

 

Castor Oil - Ricinus Communis Seed Oil

Rosehip Oil - Rosa Canina Fruit Oil

Beeswax - Cera Alba

Some brands go to great lengths to highlight products free from synthetic ingredients such as parabens, but often its what they don't say that matters. At Hawthorn & Rose we’re proud to say that our products are made from 100% natural ingredients. Water based moisturisers must contain a preservative in order to inhibit the growth of bacteria. All of our products are made from an oil base and contain no water. As a result, it is not necessary to use a preservative or any other any other synthetic ingredient for that matter.

That means no nastiesfull stop.
