Our list of Ingredients
How and why we choose each ingredient
Keeping the ingredients list short and choosing natural and organic ingredients were key concepts that I learnt from my mother and grandmother. Along the way, I found that responsible sourcing is also just as important as choosing them for their properties and benefits.
Our skincare products are all about merging the lines between health and beauty. The ingredients we choose have beneficial vitamins and minerals that synthetic products might lack.
A lot of my time and effort is spent choosing and sourcing my ingredients. I’ve done extensive research to ensure that I am using USDA organic certified, ethically and sustainably-grown ingredients. For example, you may notice that I do not use palm oil in my products, due to the extensive deforestation that often results from its production. I meticulously pick and use natural ingredients that are minimally processed and still full of their beneficial properties. All of my ingredients are also plant-based, sourced from materials such as vegetables, fruits, flowers, herbs, seeds, nuts, stems, and leaves.
At BramiPure, the term “plant-based ingredients” lets you know that our products are made with pure plant ingredients - no synthetics. Sometimes products labeled “vegan” may include synthetic or petroleum-based ingredients. Our product line is free of fillers, preservatives, synthetic stabilizers, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes or pigmentation, chemicals, parabens, toxins, sulphates, and phthalates.
I am happy to share the full list of ingredients I use in our Summer Skincare Collection and the benefits they have:
Shea Butter is a very well-known skin moisturizer that many are already familiar with. It also restores skin elasticity and is suitable for all skin types.
Mango Butter is a very hydrating and nourishing butter. It helps to soothe skin irritations and inflammations that might come up in the hot and cold seasons.
Hibiscus is not just a pretty flower, it’s a powerful one. It’s a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids, which improve skin elasticity, help with skin exfoliation, and speed up cell turnover. It keeps your skin feeling firm and soft.
Rose Hip is very rich in Vitamin C. What does Vitamin C have to do with skin? It brightens it up! Rose hips are also great for hydrating and exfoliating your pores too.
Rose Powder is an even more versatile flower than even hibiscus. It’s a natural source of retinol, which helps reduce wrinkles and soothe aging skin, along with Vitamin A and C. The powerful antioxidants in it strengthen cells and encourage cell regeneration. It’s a great moisturizer for dry skin and helps to relieve irritations and redness as well as balance out your skin’s natural oils.
Aloe Vera is most famous for soothing burns and irritated skin. It hydrates your skin and contains beneficial compounds like Vitamins A and C and antioxidants. It also encourages collagen production to heal skin too.
Arrowroot Powder is great for absorbing excess oils and overall healing of the skin. It evens out skin pigmentation and reduces skin irritations.
