When we spotted a certain well-known haircare brand extolling the virtues of 'Inca Inchi Oil' during the ad break on TV the other night, we realised one of Elemental Herbology's most prized secret ingredients was finally getting the attention it deserves. And rightly so given its many remarkable properties. Elemental Herbology has long believed in the rejuvenating, protecting and restorative effects of this wonderful raw ingredient. So much so that we have incorporated it into a vast array of our products including Purify & Soothe, Cell Plumping and Botanical Body Repair to name just a few.
Elemental Herbology discovered Inca Inchi Oil (or Sacha Inchi Oil as it is also known) when researching sources of the essential fatty acids that are so vital for keeping skin healthy. Finding this remarkable oil felt like striking gold when we discovered that this humble raw ingredient is in fact nature's most concentrated source of omegas 3, 6 and 9, all of which play a crucial role in safeguarding the skin. But as well as protecting it, Sacha Inchi Oil helps to improve the skin's texture, enhance cellular regeneration and preserve its lipidic balance. And the good news doesn't end there. Entirely organic and produced according to traditional agricultural methods, our Sacha Inchi Oil is sourced from Peru through a fair trade programme that supports Amazonian reforestation. It is immensely rewarding to work with a raw material that nourishes not only your skin but also the communities that produce it.
