10 top botanical ingredients from our range
Number 1: JUNIPER BERRY
The coniferous evergreen shrub lies along the ground, bursting with purple-black berries. These Juniper beans have been used through the ages to naturally treat skin irritations, and we include them in our products to provide astringency and aroma.
Number 2: PETTIGRAIN
Bitter, Seville, Sour or Marmalade - the oranges from these citrus trees burst with juice and yield rich, deep peel. We find steam distilled oils made from mid-season flowers and leaves.
Number 3: CYPRESS
The small, rounded, woody cones of youthful evergreen Cypress trees are decorated in summer with delightful tiny flowers. From the leaves and twigs we distill Cypress oils, known as a natural antibacterial oil which helps to naturally stimulate the nervous system, remove toxins and tighten skin because of its astringent properties.
Number 4: ALOE VERA
Aloe vera, a generously juicy succulent, is a soothing cooling moisturiser for the skin. It's light, fresh cucumber scent lingers lightly, providing a wrap around of gentle decadence for your skin.
Number 5: (SAFFLOWER) SEED OIL
This thistle, grown in rain-starved climates, produces stunning flowers and delicate oils. Thistle Oil is one of the highest natural sources of Oleic acid making it great for repairing and renewing dry skin. It is also an excellent source of Omega 3 and 6, Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, B6, Vitamin E, linoleic acid and minerals.
Number 6: SOAPBARK TREE
First described in 1782 the Quillaja saponaria was noted to produce a soap like substance from its bark. This wonderfully natural extract is used in our products as a natural alternative to the harsher chemical forms of soap.
Number 7: PEPPERMINT
Nestling alongside stream beds in Europe or worldwide in plantations, the vibrant peppermint bursts with flavour, colour and vitality. It's shoots grow wildly and just as the flowers begin to show, our growers pick, steam and press the buds to release fresh oil. Peppermint oil has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. We love peppermint oil as it helps reduce itching and has stunning aroma.
Number 8: SEA BUCKTHORN OIL
What makes Sea Buckthorn so fabulous is the unbelievable abundance of skin boosting bioactive components that make up its composition. It has 6 different fat-soluble vitamins, 22 essential fatty acids, 42 kinds of lipids and 36 different flavonoids. It is one of the richest natural sources of Vitamin A and Omega 7 making Sea Buckthorn a Kairn skincare essential. Vitamin A, Provitamin D, Vitamin E & Vitamin K. Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Zinc.
Number 9: LAVENDER
Since Roman times lavender has been used to bathe in due to its antimicrobial and antioxidant characteristics. When steamed, the delicate flowers yield pale yellow oil droplets which our growers capture and store for our balms. It's sweet-smelling rich oil is simply sublime, and is the signature of our skin balm and skin oils.
Number 10: FRANKINCENSE
Frankincense, native to the Arabian peninsula, sheds it's bark a bit like we do our skin. Paper-thin sheaths come free throughout the year, as the tree grows and seasons change. On steep slopes, buttress roots reach like fingers into rock, exposing more tree surface to the air. Steam distilled from bark resin, Frankincense, has the ability to strengthen skin and improve tone and elasticity.
