New isn’t always better.
In fact, your skin can benefit from natural ingredients that have been used for thousands of years.
Read on to learn more about these incredible ingredients.
1. Organic Grapeseed Oil.
A by-product of winemaking, grapeseed oil has been used as a medicinal and skin-care product for at least 6,000 years.
The Ancient Greeks recorded the benefits of grapeseed oil thousands of years ago when they mixed it with other oils and applied it to skin, hair and nails.
While some grapeseed oil is made using chemical solvents to extract the oil, BOOM! uses only cold-pressed grapeseed oil, which is considered much healthier.
2. Kukui Nut Oil.
The kukui tree (also known as the candlenut tree) is Hawaii’s official state tree, although it’s not a native: Early Polynesian settlers brought seeds across the sea to Hawaii between 300 and 800 CE.
The oil expressed from the nuts was used for centuries to moisturize skin constantly exposed to sun, wind and seawater.
The kukui nut oil used in Boom Gold is cold-pressed and sourced from Denmark and the Netherlands.
3. Organic Turmeric Essential Oil.
Indians have used turmeric as a medicinal supplement to treat joint, inflammatory, digestive and other ailments for nearly 4,000 years.
In Sanskrit, turmeric has many names, including bhadra, which means auspicious or lucky.
The turmeric essential oil in Boom Gold comes from India, which produces nearly all of the world’s turmeric supply.
4. Organic Frankincense Essential Oil.
Once considered priceless, frankincense is harvested from the resin of Boswellia trees.
Frankincense has been used in traditional medicine across the globe, including China and the Indian subcontinent, since at least 500 BCE.
Our frankincense essential oil comes from India and contributes a woody, spicy smell to Boom Gold.
5. Organic Sandalwood Essential Oil.
Sandalwood and its essential oil have been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years.
Esteemed for its sweet, woodsy scent, sandalwood essential oil is used to soothe nerves and promote relaxation, among other things.
Our organic essential oil comes from Australia’s native sandalwood trees.
6. Organic Tamanu Oil.
Boom Gold contains tamanu oil, an oil derived from the fruits or nuts of the tamanu tree, which is native to Southeast Asia and Polynesia.
This oil was used medicinally for hundreds of years by certain Asian, African, and Pacific Island cultures. In Fiji, it was traditionally used to treat dry, chapped and irritated skin, including diaper rash.
Our organic tamanu oil comes from Vietnam, where tamanu fruit is collected from the ground after dropping from the tree.
7. Raw Honey.
Humans have been using honey for at least 8,000 years—it’s even depicted in Stone Age cave paintings.
Honey is prized in modern skin care because it’s a natural humectant, meaning it helps your skin attract and retain moisture.
Our raw honey also contains naturally occurring royal jelly.
8. Organic Raspberry Seed Oil.
Cold-pressed from the seeds of organic berries, raspberry seed oil is nourishing and moisturizing.
Every part of the raspberry plant has roots in folk medicine.
Our organic oil, which comes from Chile, gives the skin a nourished, soft, silky feeling.
9. Organic Helichrysum Essential Oil.
Helichrysum essential oil is steam-distilled from helichrysum flowers, a member of the sunflower family.
From the ancient Greeks forward, people have used helichrysum in both culinary and medicinal applications.
The helichrysum essential oil in Boom Gold comes from France, where it’s a native plant.
