Purslane (Portulaca oleracea) is an Australian native (also known as Pigweed and by several Aboriginal names, including Munyeroo). It is rich in vitamins A (as beta-carotene), C and E (alpha-tocopherol) as well as Glutathione, a power-house anti-oxidant that brightens skin. It also promotes the pro-aging enzyme telomerase which protects the cells' DNA repair function. Purslane has skin-soothing properties and is also a good source of potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous that feed healthy skin. Purslane is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids which help to regulate the skin's oil production.
Commelina (Commelina cyanea) is an Australian native that grows mainly on the eastern coastal areas. It is exceptionally high in Vitamin C. It was eaten by the first white settlers in Australia to alleviate scurvy caused by Vitamin C deficiency, hence its common name, Scurvy Weed.
Purslane and Commelina Gentle Balancing Toner also contains Gluconolactone, a gentle PHA (Polyhydroxy Acid) that mildly exfoliates and hydrates, and Tasmanian Mountain Pepper Berry (Tasmannia lanceolata) which is an instant anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory.
Formulated with organic Aloe Vera juice and mixed weight Hyaluronic Acid to create the perfect, non-astringent, non-drying, protective balancing toner.
This super gentle but effective toner protects the acid mantle and is suitable for all skin types including oily, sensitive or rosacea-prone skins.
