STAR INGREDIENTS


Kokum Butter

The Miraculous Kokum!
Kokum butter consists of many essential substances that prove wondrous for our hair and skin! It has 'garcinol', an ingredient that has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It is also rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and vitamin B complexes, making it a perfect remedy for all skin and hair troubles.
Kokum butter is extracted from the seeds of the kokum fruit. Apart from the aforementioned properties, another thing that makes it unique is the fact that it is one of the hardest vegetable butters at room temperature; however, it melts on contact with skin. Its texture, along with a power-packed combination of healthy fats and nutrients makes it ideal for cosmetic, culinary, and toiletry usage.

What makes it an ideal choice as an active ingredient in various creams, shampoos, lotions, and other toiletry and cosmetic items, is the fact that its texture is quite thick and dense. The absence of an overpowering smell makes it apt to easily mix with other elements, and enhance the overall effectiveness of the product. Experts at the Institute of Science and the Bhabha Atomic Research Center in Mumbai, India, suggest that the antioxidant activities of this fruit are stronger than many other spices, fruits, and vegetables. This only substantiates the potential of this ingredient when it comes to healing and nourishment of our body, both internally and externally. In fact, kokum is not only used for its butter, but the fruit itself is used to prepare various drinks and dishes, especially in areas where it is found. Kokum is native to the Western Ghats of India, which is why, Ayurveda practitioners have been using this fruit for healing various ailments such as arthritis pain, ear infections, sores, stomach ulcers, and the like.

We can go on and on about the countless benefits of this fruit, however, sticking to the main subject here―kokum butter―the following are the amazing benefits of using this ingredient through your everyday skincare products.

Heals Damaged and Chapped Skin
The antioxidant and emollient properties of kokum butter makes it ideal to be used as an active ingredient in lip balms and skin moisturizers. If you have chapped lips, cracked feet, dry hands, or dry and scaly skin, using this extract would prove to be highly beneficial. Not only does it repair the damage done to the skin, it also leaves the skin soft and supple, making it feel great and younger all over again! Application of kokum butter in rashes, wounds, and burns is also helpful.

Serves as an Anti-aging Formula
You did get the cue in the last point, didn't you? Yes, kokum butter has amazing anti-aging properties which improves skin elasticity and prevents the formation of free radicals. As mentioned earlier, the presence of the very essential vitamin E in this substance contributes to making the skin more flexible and elastic. It also consists of elements that help in the regeneration of skin cells. The bottom line is that you can say hello to a young, healthy, and wrinkle-free skin!

Helps in Combating Acne
What all would we not give to get rid of this ever-haunting skin problem? Well, now you just have to take in the help of the non-comedogenic kokum butter! Yes, being non-comedogenic means that a substance is not likely to clog the pores of your skin. Most of the skin problems that we encounter are a result of clogged pores, which occur either because we don't use many cleaning agents, or if we end up using too many of them. Most of the products are comodegenic in nature, meaning they tend to clog the skin pores leading to problems. Hence, kokum butter is a great solution!

Aids in Cell Oxygenation
All the "skincare" products claim to be skin friendly, but are they truly what they claim? Speaking of kokum butter, the essential fatty acids (EFAs) that it contains, including omega 3, 6, and 9, aids cell oxygenation. This means that the skin readily accepts or absorbs the nutrients present in kokum butter, thereby accentuating the effectiveness of the healing and restoring agents present in this ingredient.

Serves as a Cocoa Butter Substitute
Not only can you avail its benefits when it comes to hair and skin, but also use it as a substitute in your food. Although, it does not have a strong aroma like cocoa, kokum butter is just perfect when it comes to substituting cocoa butter, mainly because it is highly resistant to oxidation, which means, it remains solid at room temperature. It can easily blend with other components due to its almost-nil aroma and smooth and dense texture.

Excellent choice for those with extremely sensitive skin
The benefits of this heavenly extract of the kokum fruit are not confined to the aforementioned points only. The mild and soothing properties of kokum butter makes it an excellent choice for babies and those with extremely sensitive skin.


Prebiotics

UNICA feeds your good bacteria – not just your skin – by using Prebiotics.
Prebiotics encourage the growth of probiotics, the good bacteria, referred to as “the imminent revolution in skincare”, which make the skin less hospitable for harmful bacteria that cause skin disorders, acne and eczema.
Two studies that have demonstrated that prebiotic and probiotic products actually influence the appearance of the skin. One was published in the British Journal of Dermatology and showed that eczema improved when patients were treated with a prebiotic cream, and the other appeared in the Journal of Dermatological Science and demonstrated that the levels of bacteria causing acne could be lowered with prebiotics without influencing the levels of the good bacteria.
Prebiotics also play an essential role in keeping the skin young. When the balance of microflora is damaged, the skin becomes irritated. The body responds to this irritation by creating free radicals, which play a primary role in premature aging of the skin, and a collagen-digesting enzyme. Because collagen is essential to young-looking skin, the last thing you want is to destroy it.
Unica uses a natural prebiotic for the skin, derived partly from one of the constituents of the chicory root, namely inulin, and partly from the natural sugars that result from an enzymatic process.

Mafura Butter

There’s always something new to discover in the skin care industry as new products are being developed every day. But the most intriguing and worthwhile discoveries have actually been around for centuries or longer. They’ve been used by indigenous peoples as dietary and medicinal staples and are often the source of skin care products they use to resolve dry skin, eczema, blemishes, aging and just about anything else that can go wrong with the skin. Mafura butter is one of those ‘new’ discoveries, and definitely deserves a place alongside your other favorite natural skin care treatment. What is mafura butter? It comes from the fruit of the Trichilia emetica tree, also known as Mafura butter, Natal Mahogany, Cape Mahogany and Christmas bells, an evergreen grown in low altitude areas of South Africa. It grows clusters of fragrant creamy-yellow flowers, and fruit that contains six black and scarlet seeds. The oil is extracted from the seeds and solidifies at room temperature giving us mafura butter. Why is mafura butter great for the skin? It is rich in palmatic, stearic, oleic and linoleic acids: fatty acids that are vital for good health, and for natural skin care. In fact, many of the skin care products you see on the shelves today are sought after simply because they contain these acids. They are the ‘new’ anti-aging ingredients.

Shea Butter

Shea butter has antiinflammatory properties and it is used to treat stretch marks, smaller wounds, dry skin and skin infections such as eczema. It has excellent softening properties, protects the skin against dehydration and has a Sun Protection of 2-3. Contains Phytosterols, which stimulates the formation and growth of new cells.

Cocoa Butter

Gives softness, nourishment, protection, but the thing it is best known for is helping reduce stretch marks. Pregnant women will often use cocoa lotion to help ensure their tummies are soft and pliable and don't stretch too badly. After the baby is born it can also be used to help the skin recover.

Vitamin E natural

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, which protects against the destruction of the connective tissue caused by free radicals.

A 24-hour skin patch test should still be carried out to be sure that it will suit your skin because it is possible to have an allergy even to natural ingredients. Just rub a very small amount of cream behind one ear and leave for 24 hours; if there is no reaction, the cream is suitable for you.
