Phyto-5 complexe is a blend of extracts from five plants (or 'phyto') known to exhibit healing properties and that have been used for millennia to help with skin healing and protection. Wildcrafted in Ontario, Canada*, these plants benefit the skin most by acting in concert, which may help reduce trans-epidermal water loss, boost collagen, potentially calm inflammation and deeply nourish the skin.
*With the exception of rosehip seed oil from Chile.
Sunflower seed oil (Helianthus Annus): Extremely high in Vitamin E, carotenoids (vitamin A precursors) and Vitamin D, as well as polyunsaturated fatty acids (including lineoleic acids) that can help the skin get rid of acne, and anti-oxidants that can help neutralize free-radicals and may help reduce premature signs of aging, this oil is perfect for aging gracefully (Source). This oil has been known to exhibit a super-light texture that is non-pore clogging, and fast absorbing, which may help improve skin's moisture and moisture retention capacities, while potentially smoothing and softening skin instantly.
Orange blossom hydrolat: Orange Blossom hydrolat is known to exhibit anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anti oxidant activity (source 1, source 2, source 3), and may provide skin with a fresh feel, balance the pH with it's natural acidity, may soothe redness and irritation from sun exposure or sensitivity, may help brighten and unify uneven skin tone, soften and refresh a dull complexion, giving a radiant glow. It may also help in restoring vitality and suppleness to the skin and it's soft scent is a sensorial delight.(source 1, source 2, source 3)
Unrefined Mango seed butter (Mangifera Indica): Known to exhibit anti-inflammatory, regenerative, protective, softening, soothing and moisturizing properties, this non-greasy feeling, antioxidant rich, lightweight butter contains essential fatty acids and vitamins A,C, and E, which can make it a wonderful choice for dry and mature skin.

(source) It may be instrumental in helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots, and help tighten skin for a firmer appearance. (source)
Its high vitamin content protects skin against harsh environmental stressors and damages caused by overexposure to harmful UV radiation which may make it excellent for cold, weather conditions.(source) The myriad benefits of this rich and nourishing, lightweight butter may be beneficial to those with eczema and psoriasis.
Colloidal oatmeal: A simple, miracle ingredient that helps protect and soothe dry, itchy skin, colloidal oatmeal has been used to heal and soften skin for centuries. (source) Colloidal oatmeal has long been known to be beneficial in atopic dermatitis. It has been recognized as acting, in part, through normalizing skin pH to its usual acidic range (source). Studies show that thanks to avenanthramides, a group of plant chemicals found in oat kernels, inflammation causing proteins in the body called 'cytokines', are reduced helping to inhibit an inflammatory response. (source) A high anti-oxidant profile may also helps combat oxidative stress. (source)
This unsung hero of the grain world is bursting with vital nutrients such as manganese, phosphorus, copper, biotin, vitamin B1, magnesium, dietary fiber, chromium, and zinc. (source)
Shea butter (Botyrospermum parkii): This healing, miracle butter/oil, has been used since time immemorial to support skin health.

(source)
Vitamin E (mixed Tocopherols *non GMO): A fat-soluble essential nutrient with anti-inflammatory properties, Vitamin E is known to help support the immune system, cell function and skin health (source).
