Why We Love Wildcrafted Snowflower Seed
If you have been following us for some time you would know that we LOVE Australian wildcrafted extracts and their unique ability to ramp up the antioxidant profile of your skincare routine. One of the therapeutic wildcrafted natives we frequently in our products is called the Snowflower Seed. Derived from the tea tree species, this is a unique botanical producing beautiful white fluffy flowers with an abundance of beauty-loving vitamins.
Snowflower Seed is a must-have ingredient in your skincare regime as it:
- Reduces Pigmentation. Strong anti-inflammatory actions and an abundance of vitamin C means the Snowflower Seed works wonders at targeting age spots and pigmentation. Kaempferol, a flavonoid glycoside present in Snowflower Extract also provides depigmentation and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Enhances Collagen Production. The Snowflower is abundant in a specific type of antioxidant called catechins which are 100 times more potent than vitamin C and 25 times more potent than vitamin E. These catechins work to enhance collagen production, improve skin hydration and increase and restore the luminosity of the skin after sun exposure.
- Brightens & Reduces Redness. Vitamin C along with Quercetin, found in the Snowflower Extract, reduces histamine production thereby reducing inflammation, working to brighten the skin, reduce redness and reduce skin sensitivity.
- Protects Against Photo-Ageing. Quercetin is a potent antioxidant which neutralises free radicals and reduces some of the damage they cause. Catechins and Kaempferol glycosides also inhibit skin photoaging induced by UV radiation which makes the Snowflower Extract a potent anti-ageing and photo-protective ingredient.

One of the key benefits of wildcrafted ingredients is that they are found growing in some of the most remote and untouched parts of the world. In this case of our skincare range, this is Australia. This means they have a very rare antioxidant profile. Their exposure to near-constant and extremely harsh conditions forces them to develop a highly efficient self‐defence mechanism in order to survive. This defence mechanism is created in the form of an abundant and diverse range of antioxidants which protect the plant but provide us with a power house of unique nutrients which nourish the skin. This means we are provided with incredibly powerful anti-ageing ingredients which protect our skin from external and internal damage whilst also repairing and rejuvenating our skin.
