Bridging the gap and building the dialogue between empirical evidence-based western methodology and the holistic, natural healing principles of eastern medicine.
Amanda was first impassioned to an interest in skin and sensitivity issues, when her 3-month old son developed a serious skin reaction resulting in hospital treatment after his immunisations. The pursuit of safe, natural remedies, triggered the decision to learn acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine skills from which dermatology became a principle interest and her extensive career in holistic healing began furthered by a developing passion in enhancing beauty.
The Amanda Shayle Collection is the result of years of expertise working with some of nature's most powerful healing actives, and formulated with the same evidenced based approach for visible results in damage reversal and lasting rejuvenation.
Derived from Squalene which our bodies produce as part of our sebum –
the skins natural oil, Squalane is a more stable version of Squalene, used
in formulating. Traditionally often obtained from shark liver - as an ethical
brand we only use fish-friendly plant-derived Squalane made from olives.
Squalane is non-greasy making it ideal for use on all skin types. It is
naturally antibacterial, powerfully antioxidant providing defense against
free-radical damage and helps promotes cell growth.
MORINGA SEED OIL
Moringa oil comes from the seeds of the Moringa
Oleifera tree - a healing tree native to India that has been used in traditional medicine
Antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial Moringa provides essential
defense against the growth of disease-causing microbes. Moringa seeds
include a natural antibiotic, known as pterygospermin, that can be used to
treat or control infection and research backs up evidence of Moringa’s
curative behaviour in wound healing, wound closure rate, and reduction
in the scar area all in addition to potent anti-inflammatory properties.
BORAGE SEED OIL
is obtained from the seeds of the Borage flower also
known as Star flower due to its distinctive star-like petal formation.
Borage oil is rich in Omega 6 gamma-linoleic fatty acids (GLAs). These are
potent compounds that support the hydration of the skins cellular matrix -
improving its barrier function so that skin is not only able to more
efficiently retain moisture but thereby also improving the skin’s vital
function as the body’s largest organ protecting it from foreign invaders
such as bacteria and harmful toxins.
