Our key ingredients and why we use them

At PLSC, we have six product ranges for you to choose from. Our:

  • Active range
  • Enzyme range
  • Native range
  • Botanical range
  • Superfood range, and
  • Essentials range.

Each range is best suited to different skin conditions.

Our Active range is most beneficial for mature and ageing skin.

Our Enzyme range is most beneficial for people with oily, blemished and/or problematic skin.

Our Native range is most beneficial for people with dry and/or dehydrated skin.

Our Botanical range is most beneficial for people with sensitive, stressed and/or delicate skin.

Our Superfood range is most beneficial for people with dull or polluted skin.

Our Essentials range suits all skin types.

Today we want to walk you through the key ingredients found in our Active, Enzyme, Native, Botanical and Superfood ranges, why we use them and how they work on the skin.

Hyaluronic Acid (Active range) 

Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced by our bodies. As we age, our body begins to produce less and less of it, resulting in the skin becoming dehydrated and wrinkled. This is why many products aimed at people with mature and ageing skin contain Hyaluronic Acid.

Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin look plump, smooth, hydrated, firm and ‘elastic’. It also has antibacterial properties, helps to protect the skin from environmental exposure, aids in water retention and encourages skin cell renewal.

Although we say that our Active range (of which Hyaluronic Acid is the key ingredient) is most suited to those with mature and ageing skin, the ingredient is suitable for all skin types. It’s antibacterial properties also make it beneficial for those with sensitive and acne prone skin. Given it’s lightweight properties, it also makes a great moisturiser for those with oily skin.

Papaya (Enzyme range) 

Papaya (yes, the fruit!) has exfoliating, repairing and hydrating properties. It reduces wrinkles, regulates collagen production, evens skin tone, removes dead skin and provides hydration.

It is rich in Vitamin A, B, C and antioxidants, which help to fight off the effects of environmental damage and ageing. A lot of natural products you find on the market that contain papaya (or papain as it’s sometimes called), are marketed to as exfoliants and blemish treatments (thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties).

This ingredient offers those with oily and problematic skin an opportunity to rejuvenate and refresh. It’s also great for those with ageing skin (thanks to its high antioxidant content).

Kakadu Plum (Native range) 

The Kakadu Plum is a native superfood that comes from Northern Australia. It has antiseptic properties; is full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins (in fact, it contains more than 50 times the amount of Vitamin C found in oranges!); detoxes the skin and fades scarring.

The high levels of Vitamin C found in the Kakadu Plum feed and nourish the skin, reduce the likelihood of blemishes, refresh, provide hydration and improve elasticity. It is for this reason that we include Kakadu Plum in our Native range and recommend it for those with dry and dehydrated skin.

The Kakadu Plum is suited to all skin types though, and it’s antibacterial and medicinal properties make it healing for those with oily, blemished and problematic skin and nourishing for those with dry and ageing skin.

Jacaranda (Botanical range) 

Did you know that the flowers of the beautiful Jacaranda tree have potent healing properties? They are antibacterial, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help in the treatment of skin conditions like psoriasis, condition, firm and plump (just to name a few of the benefits!)

We suggest the Jacaranda Plant (and thus the products in our Botanical range) for people with sensitive, stressed and/or delicate skin, due to its gentle, soothing and healing properties.

Wheatgrass (Superfood range)

Our Superfood range, which includes the key ingredient wheatgrass, is most suited to those with dull or polluted skin. Its detoxifying properties reinvigorate the skin, flush out impurities and toxins, and ‘bring it back to life’.

Coming from the grass of wheat, this superfood regenerates the cells, slows down the ageing process, prevents breakouts, and reduces scarring. It’s also thought to help in the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.

PLSC is very particular about which ingredients they include in their products. A lot of time is invested into researching where they come from and their efficacy, and they undergo rigorous in-house testing.

When you start your own brand with PLSC you can rest assured that your products have been intentionally and professionally formulated and designed with different skin types and needs in mind, with the highest quality ingredients.
