Silky Oil Grass

NATIVE EXTRACTS' innovation in CELLULAR EXTRACTION uses Biomimicry to deliver the first 'True to Nature' Silky Oil Grass extract. Silky Oil Grass offers an interesting combination of phyto-compounds that target a wide range of applications – teenage skin, collagen support, under eye area and an ideal partner to Vitamin C (ie.NE Kakadu Plum Cellular Extract). Silky Oil Grass is native to Australia, and belongs to the same Genus as Lemongrass. It has a place in traditional Aboriginal medicine and has been used in a variety of ways to treat a range of ailments, ie. the liquid preparation (when all solid matter is removed) has been used as a lotion for sore eyes and as a body wash.



  • Strong antioxidants;
  • Vitamin C and Flavone Glycosides work synergistically; stabilising the Vitamin C, inhibiting it oxidising and becoming a dangerous free radical. Flavone Glycosides intensify the antioxidant activity of Vitamin C;
  • Strengthens capillaries which reduces dark circles and puffiness in the delicate skin under the eye;
  • Anti-inflammatory defects, Orietin reduces the break down of collagen and elastin in the skin due to its anti-inflammatory effects;
  • Orietin stops the increase in oil production that can lead to acne, blemishes, as well as skin discoloration.


  • Helps get other vital ingredients absorbed into the skin;
  • Helps hydrate the skin by binding onto water molecules;
  • Provides potent antioxidant protection and supports healthy immune system function;
  • Supports healthy collagen production, the main component of connective tissue;
  • Strengthens capillaries which reduces dark circles and puffiness in the delicate skin under the eye.


  • Provides anti-bacterial activity and the lemon odour.
