NS Moisturises are formulated synergistically with natural active ingredients without petroleum-based ingredients. The skin recognizes the Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF) and readily absorbs the cream, providing superior moisturisation. Petroleum based products simply coat the skin forming an occlusive barrier. NS is Natural Dermatology.
It is the scientific process whereby carefully selected ingredients (in the case of NS - natural ingredients) work together to enhance each other’s performance so that the outcome is far greater than each ingredient could deliver on its own.

Phenoxyethanol is an ingredient used to ensure that there is a robust preservative system at work in our NS products. Phenoxyethanol ensures that no bacteria, fungus or mouldgets into our products, which can in turn and negatively affect your skin. It is critical that our products are 100% safe for you to use and so an effective preservative system is essential, especially for NS products because they contain a high percentage of highly active ingredients. Phenoxyethanol is used at low levels in our products (it is only ever used at less than 1%). Some preservatives need to be used at higher levels, which can adversely affect the skin, while some natural preservative systems can be prohibitively expensive, which would make our products unaffordable. Plunkett’s uses Phenoxyethanol in NS products to achieve an effective and affordable preservative system, so that our products have a 3-year shelf life, and do not require refrigeration. NS products give you peace of mind because our products are safe to use.
