Pledge of Purity from The SolKine Ohana
We hold integrity as one of our top corporate values. As both consumers and product innovators, we understand the importance of taking a stand for ethical practices involving our health and the environment.
The SolKine product line up is made with the highest quality organic oils, butters, and botanicals, with non-nano zinc oxide (nano particles are absorbable by living organisms, causing irreparable damage to living systems, like reefs, turtle eggs, fish, and your skin!). We stand by our products and proudly provide you this list of ingredients and their function for the SolKine base formula:
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
The “tree from heaven” in Sanskrit: this superfood, super oil, penetrating, extremely moisturizing, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, emollient oil is grown in abundance in the tropics.
Used for its water shedding abilities, it puts the Kine in SolKine. J Also an excellent emulsifier – keeping all the oils together as one beautiful product.
A highly emollient skin softening butter from the pressed nuts of the vitellaria, or karité tree. Excellent for after-sun care as well.
Derived from the cocoa bean, this butter has long been revered for its potent anti-oxidant properties, and you can’t deny its chocolaty scent and moisturizing qualities.
This plant-based powder touts benefits that include skin tone evening and cooling. Thanaka is also a physical ray blocker in our suncare line up.
Used as a natural colorant, our powders are raw and of the highest quality. Also having anti-oxidant properties, the addition of cocoa powder makes our sunscreen good enough to eat …if it weren’t for the zinc (we don’t recommend eating it!).
Frankincense Essential Oil
Used since biblical times, we love that frankincense is a friend to environmentally damaged or mature skin and accelerates the healing of skin blemishes.
Pomegranate Seed Oil
This ingredient has a unique polyunsaturated oil called “punicic acid”, an omega-5 fatty acid, which has strong anti-inflammatory properties. The oil also has strong antioxidants that combat premature aging, and it additionally provides protection against sun damage.
Vitamin E (gamma-enriched)
Why enrich for gamma tocopherol? This is why it’s great to have a medical advisor on board. Gamma tocopherols are the most potent and powerful antioxidant version for our purposes of all the mixed tocopherols (alpha, beta, gamma, delta), preventing spoilage, which happens to not only be great for our product ingredients, but benefits our faces too!
