Pure, clean ingredients selected for maximum efficacy

Learn more about the quality, natural ingredients that are the core of what we do…

Selecting the best ingredients for our range isn’t as simple as just picking from a list. The ingredients used in Nuasan products have been carefully selected and validated by our formulation chemists. Each product in the range contains Natural Active Ingredients, meaning they are biologically active and have a beneficial effect on the body. These ingredients are not here for show, they each have a role.

 

"When developing our formulations, we first consider what benefits we want to convey to the body. Then we research what plant actives can convey these benefits and their optimum concentration to have the best effect."

It’s not just the active ingredients that make Nuasan so effective, but it’s what we don’t include that ensures it’s gentle on the skin.

Sulphates (e.g. SLS and SLES) have long since been used as a cleansing detergent in cosmetic products, included to lather up and rinse away oil and dirt. The problem with sulphates is it they can remove too much natural oil from the skin. If your skin is sensitive, they can leave it feeling dry, itchy and irritated. The cleansers used in our products are naturally derived from glucose and coconut, which are gentler alternatives.

Nuasan products contain paraben-free naturally derived microbial growth inhibitors which stop bacteria from forming while being kind to the skin. Not only are they better for the skin but also better for the environment because once they wash down the drain, they break down easily in comparison to synthetic components.

None of the ingredients we use or our formulation are tested on animals nor do we use any animal derived ingredients so all our formulations are vegan friendly (yay!).

Check out some of our key natural actives below:

 

Arnica


Arnica is well known for its ability to reduce swelling and offer pain relief. It is frequently used by people suffering from sprains, strains, fractures and other injuries to help with swelling, bruising and pain. Studies have shown that applying arnica after exercise results is less pain and muscle tenderness. Arnica montana flowers contain helenalin (a sesquiterpene lactone) that has anti-inflammatory action and soothes and renews skin after exposure to stress.

Bamboo


Bamboo is a natural astringent which means it has the ability to tighten pores and reduce redness. It is also an antioxidant and delivers moisturising and skin softening benefits without exposing the skin to osmotic stress.

Magnesium


Magnesium is a mineral that is essential to the correct functioning of over 300 biochemical processes in our bodies. It is essential for muscle function, energy production and for allowing absorbtion of calcium for maintaining bone strength. Providing the ideal amount of magnesium means your body will be more supple, will resist fatigue for longer and will better repair itself. Magnesium also improves skin barrier function, which helps retain skin moisture.

AHA


Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) which can be found in sour milk. AHAs encourage the skin to slough off its old, dead skin cells by breaking down the “glue” between cells meaning the healthy skin cells below are revealed. Lactic acid works on the surface of skin and causes less irritation than some of the other AHAs. It softens skin, improves skin tone and helps control oil production and breakouts. It also modifies the pH of our formulations making them closer to the pH of our skin. By promoting the natural pH of our skin, we can help our body naturally restrict colonisation by pathogenic microorganisms and encourage the persistence of a healthy skin microbiome.
