Introducing Poko skin care
Welcome to Poko! We’re a natural skin care company harnessing the power of CBD for one goal: to transform your skin care routine. At Poko, we strive to deliver the best in holistic skin care by combining the innovation of cannabidiol with tried-and-tested, skin-loving natural ingredients. You’d have to be living under a rock to not know that CBD beauty is super trendy at the minute. But for us, it’s more than just a passing fad – it’s the key to making every day a ‘good skin day’. We use a solvent-free CO² extraction process to produce the highest grade CBD that has no harsh chemicals, pesticides or metals and is non-GMO.
As well as our high-quality CBD extract, Poko products are formulated using the best organic ingredients like aloe vera, plant antioxidants and botanical oils to give you happy, healthy, glowing skin. Poko products are free from silicones, phthalate, gluten, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dye, mineral oil, and palm oil. All of our products are also vegan and cruelty-free!
Regenerating Collagen Moisturiser
Collagen is one of the skin’s most important building blocks. As we age, our skin produces less and less of it – which is why it’s vital to supplement your routine with products that stimulate collagen production. Our Regenerating Collagen Moisturiser is formulated with powerful ingredients to stimulate collagen production and keep skin plump, fresh and rejuvenated. This moisturiser uses Matrixyl 3000, a synthetic peptide is known for its ability to fade fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. Topical CBD acts as a vasodilator to improve blood circulation in the outermost layers of your skin.
Experts say that between the ages of 20 and 70, blood flow to the skin reduces by 40%. Increasing circulation is one of the best ways to combat signs of ageing, and super-charge the skin with fresh blood full of oxygen and essential nutrients. Aloe vera juice helps to fight dehydration, which can exaggerate the appearance of fine lines and dullness. Aloe vera also contains potent antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E, to reduce the effects of UV damage such as age spots, fine lines and uneven skin tone. These antioxidants combat oxidative stress and damage to the skin caused by free radicals and environmental stressors.
Correcting Eye Cream
Eyes are not only the window to the soul, they’re also one of the first signs of ageing skin. Delicate under eye skin is particularly vulnerable to the elements and is often one of the first signs of stress, dehydration, poor nutrition and lack of sleep. All of these factors can contribute to premature ageing in the skin. Using a targeted eye cream packed with antioxidants and hydrating factors is one of the best ways to combat fine lines and dark circles.
Our Correcting Eye Cream is packed with plant extracts like green tea extract, raspberry extract and fig extract. Together, these botanical extracts work to brighten dark under-eye circles and fade fine lines thanks to their high levels of antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E. Hyaluronic acid keeps skin hydrated by attracting moisture out of the air, while botanical oils like avocado oil, olive oil and apricot kernel oil lock moisture into the skin. These moisturising plant oils work along with soothing CBD to reduce puffiness and keep delicate under-eye skin nourished.
Our Soothing Serum is specially formulated for oily and combination skin types, to fight acne flare-ups while still being gentle to skin. The antimicrobial properties of tea tree oil can help to fight acne-causing bacteria, while CBD works to soothe inflammation associated with break-outs. Studies show that CBD may also prevent future break-outs by regulating oil production in the skin.
Vegetable glycerin helps keep the skin moisturised, which prevents the production of excess oil that leads to acne flare-ups. Concentrated aloe vera powder is an excellent source of enzymes and antioxidants for protecting the skin against environmental pollutants. Active ingredients like CBD, tea tree oil and aloe vera powder to fight inflammation.
Ultra Hydrating Moisturiser
Our Ultra Hydrating Moisturiser is full of natural hydrating factors to keep skin hydrated. Aloe vera leaf juice made up of 99.5% water, and is intensely hydrating to quench dry and dehydrated skin. Botanical oils like apricot kernel oil, olive oil and sunflower seed oil lock in moisture. Apricot kernel oil is also high in omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids which help heal and maintain the skin’s acid mantle. Your skin’s acid mantle (also known as your moisture barrier) is like your very own ozone layer, which protects the skin from environmental damage.
Keeping your skin’s acid mantle in check is one of the most important factors of your skin care routine. Your acid mantle can be damaged by things like sulphates, harsh cleansers, over-exfoliation and sun damage. A damaged acid mantle can result in acne, irritation, sensitivity and premature ageing.
Our Ultra Hydrating Moisturiser contains both olive oil and apricot kernel oil which mimics the skin’s natural oils. These oils keep your skin balanced and hydrated without clogging pores and causing congestion in the skin. Olive oil also contains phenolic compounds, which work as effective antioxidants to heal the skin from environmental damage. The soothing properties of CBD also make this cream suitable for sensitive skin types that have a tendency to react negatively to certain products.
This cocktail of botanical oils is infused with the soothing goodness of CBD helps to help revitalise all skin types, from dry and dehydrated skin to acne-prone and ageing skin. Baobab oil, moringa oil and crambe seed oil are packed full of skin-loving omega fatty acids to keep skin happy and hydrated.
Derived from the seeds of the Adansonia tree, baobab oil is supercharged with vitamins A, D, E and F to help rejuvenate damaged skin cells. Baobab oil is also full of omega fatty acids to help fight free radicals and the signs of ageing. Thanks to its rich and silky finish, this oil is particularly beneficial for dry skin conditions to provide hydration without clogging pores.
Moringa oil is compromised almost 50% of monounsaturated fatty acids, with a particularly high percentage of oleic acid to help replenish moisture loss. It is also a rich source of vitamin E, which helps to reduce scarring and acne marks while keeping the skin moisturised and protected against environmental damage.
