Homepeel has gone to enormous effort to research, source and select ourkey ingredients.We learned very quickly that the quality of 
ingredients can mean thedifference between a product being effective or ineffective.Below is a brief summary or story if you will of each of our keyingredients and the trials, tribulations and reason we have chosen them.
Camellia Oil is one of the best kept Asian secrets. It has been used by the peopleof Asia for centuries to aid in their skin care. It really has only been the last fewyears that western societies have embraced the amazing properties of CamelliaOil. Extracted from the Tea Plant (from the seeds), Camellia Oil is grown mainly inChina and boasts the following gorgeous properties;Due to Camellia Oil’s structure being very similar natural human sebum (skinsnatural oil) it is one of the most rapidly absorbed oils
It has good disinfecting and germicide effects
Contains Vitamins A,B,C,E,K & P
It contains over 90% unsaturated fatty acids
Also contains minerals such as Phosphorus, Calcium, Iron, Manganese andMagnesium
Is rich in plant collagen
Homepeel has taken great time, expense and effort to make sure we obtained thebest Bladderwrack possible. Homepeel acquires its Bladderwrack organically fromFrance.
Is an antioxidant with water binding properties. Water binding propertieshelp keep moisture in the skin.
Bladderwrack is a sea botanical very high in natural vitamins and minerals.To name just a few; 12 Vitamins (including A, B1, B2, C, D and E),Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Potassium, Iodine, 21 Amino Acidsand over 60 trace elements.There is no better example of the importance of quality of ingredients than withour herbs.In the early stages of our research and development, we hit a brick wall. Aftermuch trial and error along with seemingly endless research involving herbalists,scientists and potential consumers, we discovered that the quality of the herbswas crucial. We needed our herbs to be from the best sources and prepared in thecorrect manner in order for them to retain their active ingredients.This meant we had to start again, (plus purchase herbs at a much higher price!),straight away we started getting the desired results.There are hundreds of vitamins and minerals present in the ingredients in our herbmixture. Along with hundreds of active substances, to name a few:
Horsetail contains flavonoids, calcium, magnesium and vitamin C. Horsetailhas a strong effect on skin cell regeneration.
Marigold contains flavonoids, fatty acids, malic acid, vitamins K, C, E andmanganese. Marigold improves skin circulation and encourages lymph flow.
Ribwort contains amino acids, citric acid, vitamin C, provitamin A, Vitamin K,calcium and Zinc. Ribwort is detoxifying and regenerating.
There are many people who believe that using salicylic acid in skin peels is thesuperior choice. One of the main reasons is the fact that salicylic acid causes farless irritation than members of the AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) family. Salicylic acidis derived from White Willow Bark. Salicylic acid is a very effective anti-inflammatory.Salicylic acid peels exfoliate both the surface of the skin and within the poresthemselves. It is able to penetrate into the pore because it is oil soluble. This isgreat news for people who wish to rid themselves of years of dry, dull skin buildup.Using salicylic acid is a safe and effective way to improve the look of sun-damagedand aging skin. It’s also beneficial in reducing the appearance of mild acne scars.Salicylic acid loosens the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum is the mostupper layer of skin. It as made up of tightly compacted dead skin cells. Thisstratum corneum is what gives the skin it’s dull, slightly leather look. These deadcells will shed, revealing the new cells underneath. This results in an improvementin the smoothness and radiance of your skin. The salicylic acid accelerates theskins natural exfoliation process. The Haberlea Rhodopensis is also known as the Resurrection Plant because it has aquite unique property that makes it a very useful addition to skin moisturisers. Itis a hardy plant that can dry out completely and survive extended waterlessperiods. Upon the re-introduction of water, the plant can completely recover.The Resurrection plant has this amazing ability through its cosmotropic properties.Cosmotropic substances have the ability to stabilise the structure of surroundingmolecules from breaking down, leading to a structured biochemical environmenthttp://www.cheshamchemicals.co.uk/articles/jul04.htm
