Turmeric is used as an antiseptic. It has been in very wide use by women for skin care, particularly to discourage facial hair and acne. Has scar fading and skin lightening properties.
Lemongrass Essential Oil is known for its invigorating and antiseptic properties. It can be used to help fight acne and greasy skin. Has scar fading and skin lightening properties.
Licorice root extract is loaded with anti-oxidants and can help reduce the appearance of age spots and dark areas of hyperpigmentation on skin. It contains an active compound called “glabridin,” which inhibits the enzyme that causes skin to darken in response to sun exposure. A natural skin whitening agent, glabridin helps decrease the production of melanin and rebalance skin cells. Licorice extract may also help diminish dark under-eye circles, and darkened areas caused by scars.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) produces results by affecting the levels of glutathione. Glutathione is considered a melanin inhibitor that controls the production of pigments. Higher levels of glutathione result in fair skin, thus it has a direct link to controlling hyperpigmentation and reducing dark spots.
Witch hazel-One of nature's best astringents, there is probably no better tonic or toner for skin care preparations. It is frequently used in products like after shave lotions, where it shows mildly styptic properties as well as helping to reduce razor burn and swelling through its cool soothing sensation. In skincare, Witch Hazel can be used as toner or in place of a cleanser. It is particularly beneficial for oil and problem skin through its more gentle properties.
Neem Oil-aids in the healing of topical skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, rashes, burns and acne.
Honey is reputed to have antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Honey Powder is also said to have anti-aging properties. It is a humectant, having the ability to attract and retain moisture, and to increase the amount of moisture in the skin without making it oily.
Tea Tree Oil is best known as a very powerful immune stimulant. It can help to fight all three categories of infectious organisms (bacteria, fungi, and viruses) and has been used to combat acne and oily skin.

Provides moisturization, while healing

White Willow Bark Extract is also believed to be an effective anti-bacterial agent.
