A huge variety of Essential Oils are used in the Saaf product formulations and all obtained from the most therapeutic parts of the plants, by a gentle two-step extraction process;
COLD PRESSED BOTANICALS – this method helps to preserve the natural anti-oxidant properties of the oils.
STEAM DISTILLED ESSENTIAL OILS – after cold-pressing, water is added to allow separation at lower temperatures, thus protecting the sensitive compounds from decomposition. This method also avoids the use of harsh extraction chemicals which can irritate sensitive skin.
Once we have created our precious formulations we preserve them using d-mixed Tocopherol – a natural form of Vitamin E from non-GMO Sunflower Oil. It’s also included for its beneficial effects on the skin as an anti-oxidant. Absolutely no artificial colours, preservatives or fragrances are used.
