The Rabot 1745 collection is proudly based on harnessing nature’s powerful botanical ingredients. Think of them as the building blocks of the range with their naturally active properties.
Abyssinian [Crambe Abyssinica] seed oil
With a high percentage of omega 9 fatty acids, Abyssinian oil is an excellent moisturiser. It's easily absorbed so doesn't leave a greasy residue.
Almond [Prunus amygdalus dulcis] oil
Sweet almond oil softens skin and delivers a vitamin superboost, helping to protect against free radical damage.
Apricot [Prunus armeniaca] kernel oil
Apricot oil is rich in skin-soothing vitamins and essential fatty acids. It nourishes and hydrates without leaving a residue.
Argan [Argania spinosa] oil
Helping to retain moisture and improve skin’s elasticity, argan oil is also rich in omega 3 and 9 fatty acids and vitamin E.
Babussu [Attalea speciosa] oil
We love babussu oil. It moisturises, softens, smooths and strengthens - and has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties too.
Reputed to have aphrodisiac qualities, the bark from the Richeria grandis tree is used widely in the West Indies and Caribbean where it is revered for its almost mythical powers. We’ve extracted the essential oils and use it in our fabulous Wonder Balm, where its powerful moisturisers help soothe and moisturise parched skin, tame eyebrows and soften cracked cuticles.
Cacao [Theobroma cacao] seed butter
Cacao is the beating heart of our range. Inspired by the skincare treatments at our rainforest hotel on Saint Lucia, the Rabot 1745 beauty collection harnesses the power of cacao’s skincare ‘must haves’ - vitamins, fatty acids and hydration - in beautifully perfumed, easily absorbed form.
Coconut [Cocos nucifera] shell powder
Nature’s exfoliator. Ground-up coconut shells act as a fabulous skin polisher in our hydrating body scrub.
Coffee bean powder
Wake up whilst exfoliating - our blend of Arabica coffee bean polishes and sloughs away dead skin cells for smooth, silky skin.
Known for its ability to draw out impurities, we use kaolin to help clear clogged pores and refine the skin.
Lime [Citrus aurantifolia] oil
Antioxidant and antiseptic, lime oil’s astringent properties slough away dead skin cells, revealing soft, glowing skin. We love its uplifting, zesty scent.
Mango [Mangifera indica] butter
Vitamin-rich mango seed oil is wonderful for parched skin. Packed full of precious antioxidants, it helps retain moisture whilst protecting skin.
Nutmeg [Myristica fragrans]
Spicy, sweet and aromatic, nutmeg has an earthy quality that delivers a rounded warmth.
Rosemary [Rosmarinus officinalis] leaf extract
Cleanses, soothes and has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Improves the texture of lips.
Shea [Vitellaria paradoxa] butter
Shea butter is one of nature’s superheroes. Easily absorbed, it intensively hydrates dry skin whilst locking in moisture. High levels of oleic acid and powerful antioxidants make this one of our favourite anti-inflammatory botanicals.
