Over the rainbow and across the Atlantic, we searched both near and far to harness the powerful ingredients worthy of our latest fungus fighting blend. The main ingredient of this batch, Niaouli Oil, is a direct relative of Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree), and grows wild on the island of Madagascar.
Characterized by it’s anti-fungal + anti-microbial properties, it is widely used for its ability in killing gram-positive bacteria. Next, from the island of Hawai’i aka “The Big Island”, we sourced a healthy amount of ‘Ohi’a Lehua White Honey, a very special variation only harvested in Hawai’i by small privately owned apiaries and produced in very limited quantities. The naturally high viscosity of the Honey helps to provide a protective barrier, preventing infection and further stimulating quick wound-healing.
We then added yet another tier of antibacterial power with the addition of organic, California-grown Oregano oil and O’ahu-grown Kukui Nut oil (which also helps to rehydrate the skin). This is quickly followed up with a splash of fatty-acid rich, Almond Oil, which lends its sweet scent to the batch. Next, Aloe Vera Extract is infused to reduce inflammation while a generous pour of Champagne Extract is added, whose antioxidant richness has proven to be 20 to 50 times more powerful than vitamin C and vitamin E.
These Rainbow Warriors are finally rounded off with Menthol Crystals, designed to re-open pores and allow our bacteria fighting recipe inside to deep cleanse. Meanwhile, Crushed Rainbow Sea Sponge is sprinkled in to help exfoliate away any dead skin acquired during heavy training.
