Our Face Serum is packed with a number of fantastic ingredients, but the main ingredient is the Kalahari Melon Seed Oil.
The Kalahari Melon is a prehistoric, evolutionary ancestor of the common watermelon. It is native to the Kalahari desert – one of the driest places on earth – and serves as a vital lifeline for the local San people who rely on this fruit to be a crucial source of water. In fact, the San only cross the Kalahari in melon season, as they know that without it they won’t survive.
The oil pressed from the Kalahari Melon seeds contains one of the highest concentrations of Linoleic Acid, an omega-6 essential fatty acid with well known benefits for healthy living. It is a natural component of the skin barrier, and is well known to have exceptional skincare benefits. It promotes healing, is anti-inflammatory, and is proven to improve senile dryness and skin atrophy (thinness). KMS oil is an incredibly user friendly oil. It is one of the least greasy oils and therefore doesn’t clog pores as it penetrates the skin exceptionally quickly.

Why Natural Skin Care is Best
At Wynnya we only use pure and natural ingredients and this is why:
Natural skin care products work with your skin instead of against it.
No Peculiar Side Effects
Parabens are used in most shop-bought health and beauty products. It is used as a preservative to extend the shelf life of products. However, parabens are synthetic and mimic your body’s natural hormones. Many people worry that this can alter the functions of your body’s endocrine system. Artificial ingredients like parabens may help a product do one thing well, but there could be possible side effects that are still being uncovered. Natural health and beauty products use natural preservatives. And while some people have allergies to a few natural ingredients, the effects are less severe than the ones from synthetic ingredients.
Milder Over Time
Many natural products work better than their chemically loaded counterparts because they don’t contain excessive fillers or irritants. And while some unnatural products may seem to work better with the first try, over the long-term, the harmful chemicals that made your skin feel cleaner or your hair feel smoother may actually cause damage.
Chemicals, artificial colours, and fillers in skin care products can cause redness, irritation, and breakouts. Many people are allergic to chemicals commonly found in shop bought products.
Save Your Nose
Artificial fragrances are designed to cover up the smell of other chemicals used in normal health and beauty products. The effect is that you have a chemical to cover up another chemical, and all those chemical smells can cause headaches in many people. Natural health and beauty products smell like their natural ingredients, not a cocktail of chemicals. Natural health and beauty products scented with natural essential oils can even provide aromatherapy.
Products made from conventionally produced ingredients can have a negative environmental impact. The manufacturing of chemical-heavy health and beauty products puts those chemicals, and many more, into the air and water, and even more go down your drain in your own home. When ingredients for natural health and beauty products are farmed and manufactured organically, fewer chemicals are put into the air and water. Frankly you won’t have to worry about chemicals going down the drain because there won’t be any in the bottle.

Wynnya … “all is good in joy and harmony.”
Being thick skinned is more than a metaphor; having a thick skin is your best defence against sensitivities.
Your skin is continually working hard, even though you cannot see it. The uppermost layer works the hardest and has the toughest job. This layer is there to form a barrier against external threats passing through, and to protect all that lies within. Any weakness in this barrier is the underlying cause of sensitive skin. Strengthening the top layer of skin is the key to reducing skin sensitivity. Think of it as a coat of varnish on a beautiful piece of wooden furniture; as long as the varnish remains strong the wood will stay beautiful.
We’re composed of 75% water, but this percentage reduces with time and we dry up as we get older. Ultimately the key is hydration. Pale skin is more prone to external damage as the skin barrier is thinner.
If your skin barrier is healthy, it will preserve a good hydration balance by efficiently retaining water.
Healthy skin contains the right amount of lipids, it is resilient yet supple, and will look radiant as a result. Unhealthy skin will look dull, dry and possibly scaly. This means that toxins can penetrate easily and cause inflammation which presents itself as skin sensitivity such as stinging or redness. This can be aggravated after the use of certain skincare ingredients.
The struggle to keep skin hydrated is real. Once you’ve had a bad reaction to a product, the uppermost layer of your skin is compromised, potentially leading to more problems.
Steroid creams that are prescribed to treat skin irritations, eczema and allergic reactions, while reducing the inflammation, cause thinning of the skin which leaves you susceptible to further irritants.
Seven ways to strengthen your skin
- Go back to basics
Scrutinise your beauty routine. Throw out all products with astringents like alcohol and witch hazel. Don’t use foaming cleansers which strip away your skin’s natural oils.
- Be skin-wise when you shop
Read the labels before you buy products to make sure you’re not buying something that will do more harm than good.
- Pay attention to your PH
Detergents that contain Sodium Laurel Sulfate must be avoided. They strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving the outer layer exposed and susceptible to irritation. They also throw off the skin’s PH because of their alkalising effect.
Instead of using these damaging products you could use coconut oil. It is a natural product with many health benefits, made from one of the true wonder plants of the world.
Wynnya coconut soap is made purely from coconut oil.
Another natural alternative is Wynnya body butter and lotion. They are made with Avocado butter and oil, which is a great moisturiser which relieves dry, itchy skin. It also increases collagen production which helps keep the skin plump and decreases the effects of aging.
Glycerine, a vegetable based humectant, is used to treat conditions like acne, skin infections, wrinkles and fine lines. Glycerine attracts moisture to your skin.
Aloe Vera gel is a great remedy for skin conditions such as burns, sunburn, frostbite, psoriasis, cold sores, itching and inflammation.
- No Scrubs
Rather avoid exfoliation. Too often we use brushes or exfoliators that are too harsh for our skin and this leads to other skin concerns.
- Don’t stress
“Your skin is your biggest organ and needs to be looked after from inside and out,” Says Sarah Brown. “Make sure you’re using the right products that protect and repair your skin barrier, but also look at your diet and stress levels. Stress is proven to slow down the skin healing process, including skin barrier recovery. So, daily stress or poor stress management can leave the skin barrier in a permanently weakened state.”
- Eat your way to healthy skin
“The healthier you are generally, the better your skin will be,” Says Dr Murad. “Eat omega-rich foods such as cold water fish, flax seed and walnuts; when you eat well, those omegas eventually go to the surface of the skin. It’s about making every cell in the body as healthy as possible.”
- Wear sunscreen
Wearing sunscreen every day is one of the easiest ways to care for your skin. Choose a sunscreen that is rich in antioxidants so that it not only protects your skin from the sun’s damage but also from other environmental stressors.
Wynnya Sun Protection is made from sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, wheat germ oil, avocado butter, bulbine frutescens botanical extract, glycerine and zinc oxide. These ingredients combine to give you a sunscreen that is mild, hypoallergenic, and safe for sensitive skin. It contains antioxidants, is light in texture and easily absorbed. It has mild astringent qualities which help to tighten and tone skin. The lotion is high in vitamin E essential fatty acids which promote the formation of new cells, improves circulation, and helps repair sun damage to the skin.
You can love the skin you’re in when you know that it is forming a healthy, protective barrier between you and the potential threats that it faces in our everyday environment.
When you use Wynnya products you can rest assured that the care and nourishment that you give your skin is pure and natural and therefore safe for all skin types – even the most sensitive.
Now, with the onset of winter, when dry, sensitive skin is more likely, treat your skin to some extra-special care with the Wynnya skin care range.
