Centella Asiatica, commonly known as cica is a medicinal plant that has been used in folk medicine for hundreds of years as well as in scientifically oriented medicine. The active compounds include pentacyclic triterpenes, mainly asiaticoside, madecassoside, asiatic and madecassic acids. Cica is effective in improving treatment of small wounds, hypertrophic wounds as well as burns, psoriasis and scleroderma. The mechanism of action involves promoting fibroblast proliferation and increasing the synthesis of collagen and intracellular fibronectin content and also improvement of the tensile strength of newly formed skin as well as inhibiting the inflammatory phase of hypertrophic scars and keloids.
Figs (Tin fruit) can trace their history back to the earliest of times with mentions in the Bible and other ancient writings. They are thought to have been first cultivated in Egypt. Figs contain adequate levels of some of the anti-oxidant vitamins such as vitamin A, E, and K. Altogether these phyto-chemical compounds in fig fruit help scavenge harmful oxygen derived free radicals from the skin and thereby protect the skin from premature wrinkles, age spot, sun spot, and other skin degenerative problems. In the first Quranic verses in sura al Teen, the medicinal advantages of the fig are discussed the Quran says: "I swear by the Fig and the Olive". Fig plant is one of the fruits mentioned in the Quran, along with olives, grapes, pomegranate, banana and dates.
In 2000, it was mentioned that habbatussauda (Nigella sativa/black seed) could be used in cosmetics because of its aroma components. After that, it was noticed that sun protective factor (SPF) value for habbatussauda is more than 2, so it has some properties against the sun. That means we can use the oil in cosmetics. The most appealing benefits of habbatussauda is its antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties, which work to reduce clogged pores and control oil, as well as tame redness and soothe irritation, including eczema. This plant very popular in various traditional medicines such as Unani and Tibb, Ayurveda, and Siddha. It is the black seeds referred to by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), who once stated, “The black seed can heal every disease, except death”.
Olive oil contains tyrosol phenolic compounds such as oleuropein and oleocanthal and its derivative hydroxytyrosol are nature’s most powerful anti-oxidants. Research proves that applying olive oil to the skin can prevent signs of photo-aging and sun damage. Olive contains a good amount of vitamin E. 100 g cured, and canned fruits provide 1.65 mg (11% of RDA) of αtocopherol. Vitamin E is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant, required for maintaining the integrity of cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin by protecting it from harmful oxygen-free radicals. External use of olive oil softens the skin and eczema blisters, and is suitable for massaging. “Olive” in Quran, has been repeated six times. Also, Surah AlMumenoon, verse 20, pointed indirectly to a tree which gives oil and grows in Sina Mountain. The olive name alone has been mentioned twice, whereas it has been repeated five times with other fruits such as dates, grapes, and fig.
Syaquina wheat germ extract is a plant extract of Triticum sativum used in sensitive skin care products and contains oligoelements such as potassium, iron, calcium, zinc and magnesium and vitamins (A, E and B-group).

Pumpkin extract could affect melanosome transfer. This suggests potential hyperpig¬mentation-protection benefits. During the study, treatment of keratinocytes with the extract prior to UVB exposure enhanced their intracellular antioxidant system, activating Nrf2 signaling and therefore suppressing MS transfer stimulated by the ROS generated by UVB. Skin soothing, anti-inflammatory effects have also been attributed to pumpkin.
Grape is one of the most delicious fruits God created. In Holy Quran, grape has been mentioned eleven times in singular (Enab) and plural (Anab) forms. "And in the land, there are adjoining plots, gardens of vines, sown fields and palm trees in pairs and single that is watered with one water, yet we make some excel others in produce. Surely, in that are signs for a nation who understand". Grape seed extract contains powerful antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and fatty acids that work together to combat skin issues. Grape seed extract safe to use on all skin types since it's non-comedogenic, and has a mild scent. It also contains Vitamin E, which is hydrating and anti-inflammatory property.
Dates are the staple food of the middle east and very popular in Islamic countries. Dates were the most favored food of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who said “If anyone is fasting let him break his fast with dates. In case he does not have them, then with water.”Its health benefits and nutritional value are well known across the world due to the presence of rich high profile nutrients and their health-promoting properties including skin health. We extract date palm fruit (Phoenix dactylifera L. Arecaceae) from Arabian countries because these fruits are a rich source of sugars (glucose and fructose), vitamins (A, C, and B complex), fibers, minerals, and phenolic compounds having antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The Phoenix dactylifera L. fruit extract serves as a skin care ingredient that significantly improves characteristics important for perception of skin ageing and health.

Niacinamide, an amide of vitamin B3 (niacin), is a hydrophilic endogenous substance. Its effects after epicutaneous application have long been described in the literature. Given a sufficient bioavailability, niacinamide has antipruritic, antimicrobial, vasoactive, photo-protective, sebostatic and lightening effects depending on its concentration. Within a complex metabolic system niacinamide controls the NFκB-mediated transcription of signalling molecules by inhibiting the nuclear poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1). Niacinamide is a well-tolerated and safe substance often used in cosmetics.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble, essential nutrient with anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E helps support the immune system, cell function, and skin health. It’s an antioxidant, making it effective at combating the effects of free radicals produced by the metabolism of food and toxins in the environment.
