Good things in…
We look to nature for our inspiration, and our cream contains active natural ingredients:
Vitamin E is a powerful natural anti-oxidant which means that it can protect cells from being damaged by "oxygen free radicals" which have been linked to aging and skin cell damage. Vitamin E works by neutralising free radicals produced from sources like air pollution and ultraviolet radiation.
Aloe vera derives its name from the Arabic word 'alloeh', which means bitter. The Aloe plant is a miraculous natural remedy well known for its skin soothing and healing properties, and has been used since ancient times by the Egyptians, Arabs, Africans and Indians. When combined with Vitamin E it helps to keep the skin supple, moisturised and soothed.
Shea Butter is a most effective natural skin moisturiser and protector. Its excellent moisturisation qualities are due to its high content of natural fatty acids and vitamins. Shea butter is gentle, light and completely absorbed into the skin without clogging pores or leaving a greasy residue, it retains moisture and skin elasticity, and for this reason is a popular ingredient in anti-wrinkle preparations.
Cocoa Butter is well known for its skin softening, smoothing, and cleansing properties. It acts as a natural emollient against skin irritations, itching, and dry skin.
We are firmly against cruelty to animals and our products have not been tested on animals.

Bad things out…
At Halo skincare we avoid harsh chemicals. Halo Light Moisturising cream does not have: synthetic fragrances, artificial colourants, parabens, lanolin, PABA-sunscreen, Formaldehyde, Urea, PEG's or DEA.
Fragrances are often used in skincare products to cover up the chemical smell of the other ingredients in the preparation. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), fragrance is the number one cause of allergic reactions in cosmetics.
Because Halo LMC contains no added perfume and because we use active natural ingredients, the fragrance of the product is only of the ingredients themselves.
In addition, Halo is ideal for those looking for a no perfume cream suitable for Hajj or Umrah.
Artificial colours may sometimes cause allergic reactions in people with sensitive skin. We do not believe that we need to tint or mask the colour of our products.
We do not use parabens in our Light Moisturising Cream. Parabens are widely used in skin care products, but they can be irritating to the skin and eyes and can cause allergic reactions. In addition, recent research has shown that there is some evidence that parabens may disrupt the body’s hormone systems, by mimicking the effects of oestrogen.
