The magic ingredients of Aqua A’s Blue Beauty Trio
Let’s take a deeper look into the magic ingredients of our new Retinod Renewing Serum Aqua A.
Blue Tansy (also known as Moroccan Chamomile), is a rare and prized ingredient, growing only in the most optimal conditions in Northern Morocco. Its texture is rich, and its color is a jewel-like indigo — reminiscent of the deep blue sea.
Its signature blue hue comes from the natural chamazulene formed when the plant material is exposed to heat during distillation. Chamazulene is what makes Blue Tansy so magical at helping to calm and soothe skin irritation — reducing inflammation and redness almost instantly. It has a very distinctive scent — sweet like apples with a strong herbaceous aroma that immediately evokes a sense of peace and relaxation.
Rainforest Blue Essential Oil
Rainforest Blue Essential Oil is highly unique and treasured oil harvested from the sub-tropical Australian rainforest and distilled in the Northern Rivers Hinterland of New South Wales. It’s derived from the native Australian Rose Mahogany Tree — so named for the bark’s lovely rose fragrance — and collected ethically from naturally fallen timbers.
Just like Blue Tansy, the rosewood oil’s brilliant blue color emerges in the distillation process, caused by a natural compound called guaiazulene. Naturally antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, guiazulene is a powerhouse antioxidant ingredient that helps calm the skin and bring blemishes under control.
