KOVO's Hero Ingredients


At KOVO, we believe that a holistic and minimal approach to skincare is the key to long-lasting results and and restored wellness.


We work diligently with leading beauty chemists to create multi-tasking, plant-powered skincare products using potent and responsibly sourced ingredients that perform exactly as intended.


Let’s discuss a few hero ingredients of our formulations.


Cannabidiol (CBD) is in all of KOVO Essential’s products. This is because CBD has a multitude of benefits for our skin including calming irritation, relieving inflammation, providing moisture, balancing oil production, and protecting against free radical damage. Using CBD is also crucial as a delivery mechanism, as CBD helps to deliver other ingredients more effectively and more deeply into the layers of the skin.


Probiotics are often thought of as ingredients used to promote better gut health, but similarly to your gut health, probiotics help to balance bacteria in the skin. When the natural and healthy bacteria in the skin is balanced, your skin will fight off bad bacteria and free radicals, regulate the skin’s pH levels, reduce blemishes, and ultimately combat accelerated aging.


Turmeric is extremely rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. These help to heal scarring and blemishes while balancing your skin tone. It also is proven to help treat common skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The result? A dewy and luminous complexion.


Bakuchiol is the new plant-based alternative to retinol. Bakuchiol has proven to be just as effective as retinoids in your skincare routine, without the negative side effects that oftentimes come with using strong and chemically-based retinoids. Bakuchiol ultimately diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles, tightens the skin, and promotes quicker cell turnover and collagen production. It truly is an anti-aging must have.


Arnica helps to improve blood circulation to the skin, which helps with pain relief and reducing inflammation. It is also rich in anti-bacterial properties, helping maintain a balanced microbiome.

Jojoba Oil:

Jojoba Oil is rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties, making it the perfect ingredient for skincare. It is also a humectant ingredient, meaning that it draws water to the skin, leaving your skin moisturized. The makeup of Jojoba oil is so similar to our bodies natural oils, that your skin can’t tell the difference. This means that the jojoba oil will not build up on your skin, clogging pores and causing blemishes. Jojoba oil also has been proven to help stimulate collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as evening the skin’s complexion.


Our Plant-powered formulations are clean and effective, delivering nutrient-dense ingredients, exactly where the skin needs them.
