Thoroughly researched skincare products packed with skin-restoring natural ingredients that brighten, hydrate, and nourish your skin—that’s the Oceanic Gold promise.

So if you love how our products are easily absorbed by your skin or the luxe jars that they come in, you’re going to adore them even more when you find out what each of their powerful nature-derived ingredients can do for your skin.
Rosehip Oil – If you have dark spots, pimple marks, and scars dotting your face but are too hesitant to try brightening products because of your sensitive skin, then you’re in for a treat with rosehip oil. Extracted from the seed pods of wild roses, rosehip oil contains anti-inflammatory fatty acids that boosts the skin’s barrier and vitamins A and C that help refine the appearance of scars, pigmentation, and even fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also a great moisturizer, and because it’s a dry oil, it works perfectly for those with oily skin as it seeps easily into your dermal layers.

Sea Buckthorn Berry – The use of sea buckthorn berry to treat digestive and skin disorders dates back to Ancient Greece. Today, modern research has discovered that it’s an abundant source of fatty acids—including the rare omega-7—antioxidants, vitamins C and E, and other bioactive compounds. Aside from its hydrating properties, this skin superfood is also known for its anti-aging and protective benefits.

Conchiolin – That luminous radiance you see on pearls is courtesy of conchiolin, a type of protein secreted by mollusks that gives this semi-precious stone its characteristic pearlescent shine. Conchiolin is one of the nutrients found in crushed pearls or pearl powder, which is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine to fight inflammation and detoxify the body. While there is still no definite scientific proof to back up the skin benefits of conchiolin and pearl powder, a 2006 study published in the Journal of Cell Biology has found that conchiolin acts like the protein keratin and aids in hydrating skin cells, promoting cell repair and regeneration, and boosting circulation.
Australian White Kaolin Clay – Clay has been used for centuries for its healing and cleansing benefits. In skin care, it’s lauded for its ability to draw out pore-clogging dirt and toxins, sloughing away dead skin cells, improving circulation, and absorbing excess oil. Different types of clay can be added to skin care products, but kaolin white clay is known to be one of the gentlest and silkiest, making it safe to use for all skin types. Oceanic Gold USA uses kaolin white clay that is found in Australia, which is thought to be one of the most superior, whitest, and purest types of clay.

Jojoba – As far as natural skin care ingredients are concerned, jojoba is one of the best known and most widely available. And for good reason. Jojoba is packed with vitamin E, linoleic acid, and B-vitamins—to name a few—which make it particularly effective in refining early signs of aging, protecting from sun damage, reducing the appearance of scars and other blemishes, and moisturizing dry and dehydrated skin. Studies also show jojoba as having anti-inflammatory properties that can be beneficial in treating skin conditions like acne and wound healing.

Evening Primrose – Loaded with omega-6 fatty acids and linoleic acid, the skin benefits of evening primrose are as beautiful as this yellow flower’s name. Known in traditional medicine as a cure-all (it’s used to relieve headaches and muscle pain and improve appetite and immunity, among others), evening primrose is also prized for its soothing and moisturizing effects on the skin. As an anti-aging ingredient, it helps enhance the skin’s firmness and elasticity, refines wrinkles and fine lines, and evens out complexion. For those who deal with acne and frequent breakouts, evening primrose is also known to boost the skin’s healing process, diminish the appearance of scars and pimple marks, and calm inflammation.
Lemon Myrtle – Found in the subtropical rainforests of central and southeastern Queensland, Australia, lemon myrtle has long been used for its healing benefits and even as a flavoring ingredient in food. It’s also known for its antimicrobial and antifungal properties, making it an effective cleanser and disinfectant. In skin care, it’s often used as an astringent as it has the ability to shrink pores and keep sebum production under control. You can also find it in eye creams as its antioxidant and skin-brightening properties help in strengthening capillaries and reducing dark circles.

Grape Seed Oil – Here’s the number one reason we love grapes (and no, we’re not talking about a glass of rosé, although we love that too!): Grape seed oil. Packed with nutrients like vitamins C, D, and E, grape seed oil is a sought-after natural skin care ingredient because of its ability to help reduce scarring, speed up wound healing, and stimulate collagen production. It is also a popular anti-acne ingredient: It calms inflamed and irritated skin, contains astringent properties that help shrink large pores and active pimples, and improves the appearance of pimple marks.
