Milk Thistle Oil: The active complex in milk thistle is silymarin, known for detoxifying, regenerating and stabilizing cell membranes. It has the ability to repair skin cells that have been damaged by UVB radiation and minimize age spots and discoloration. When used in skin care products, it supports and promotes a healthy radiant complexion with exceptional age-defying properties. Milk Thistle oil also protects against collagen and elastin breakdown and improves circulation in the skin at a cellular level by fighting an aging reaction in the skin called glycation, making the skin more supple and elastic and slowing wrinkles. Silymarin stands out amongst the other topical antioxidants available today as its anti-inflammatory and non-comedogenic properties help calm breakouts and its ability to control oil production, making it great for acne prone skin.
Squalane (Olive): Humans are born with Squalene in their skin. The skin’s sebaceous glands contain around 12% Squalene, forming part of our skin’s natural protective barrier that keeps the moisture in, and bacteria out. However, from the age of around 25, the skin’s Squalene levels begin to deplete, making it susceptible to dryness, dehydration and premature ageing. While many commercially available Squalene is sourced from shark liver, at Bodhi Tree we use the plant-based Olive Squalane, with the same properties for the skin. Squalane is nature’s replacement for the human skin’s squalene, protecting it from moisture loss and environmental toxins. Research studies have shown that squalane is critical in reducing free radical oxidative damage to the skin. A proven SPF booster, it removes the cell damaging effects of free radicals caused by UV exposure that causes premature ageing. Squalane shows several advantages for skin tissues, delivering key actives into the deeper layers of the skin, without leaving a greasy feel to it.
Macadamia Oil: The high concentration of palmitoleic acid in macadamia oil causes products containing it to mimic human sebum, making it beneficial for slowing down the ageing of the skin. Moreover, macadamia oil easily penetrates, softens, and influences the condition and proper functioning of the skin. It also enhances the absorption of vitamin C by the skin. It prevents or reduces dryness, irritation, and skin lacerations.
Calendula Infused Sunflower Oil: Calendula is an incredible flower that has been used for centuries by many cultures and traditions, including Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine.

Calendula contains flavonoids, saponins and triterpenoids, which are known to have an anti-inflammatory effect. Ideal for sensitive, oily, and acne-prone skin, it can help to banish dark spots, blemishes, acne, and acne scars. Its ability to increase blood flow and oxygen to the skin results in the skin function at its healthiest, restoring its elasticity.
