Why Five Elements?

Five Elements products contain New Zealand-grown herbal extracts derived from five different plant species, carefully selected for their skin healing properties. They are what make Five Elements products unique. 

Powerful Healing Herbal Extracts

With benefits that have been known since ancient times, the effectiveness of these ingredients has been backed up by numerous scientific studies.

Ginkgo increases blood flow which assists with healing your skin. It also exhibits anti-inflammatory and calming properties and aids in the production of collagen and elastin, which keep your skin firm and youthful.

Olive oil can soothe, smooth, and nourish the skin, helping you appear younger and keeping your complexion brighter. Extra virgin olive oil is high in phenolic antioxidants which have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects.

Plantago is well known for its wound healing effects and has been shown to assist the recovery of normal skin without the formation of scars. It has shown anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticancer and antiseptic properties.

Rumex extract contains a highly effective inhibitor of tyrosinase. Inhibiting tyrosinase reduces the formation of new pigment, and results in skin whitening.

Its antimicrobial and antiseptic qualities make it beneficial in treating eczema, dermatitis, oily skin, and acne. Rosemary also stimulates the brain improving memory and mental clarity.
