You may wonder why we call our fabulous Metro Man’s moisturiser “Shock Absorber”?
Wikipedia explains that “A shock absorber is a mechanical device designed to smooth out or damp shock impulse, and convert kinetic energy to another form of energy (usually thermal energy, which can be easily dissipated).” We at The Summit liken this description to the action that happens when you use our Shock Absorber to counter the sometimes painful effects of razors, or to provide a barrier for your skin’s protection from the wind, or simply so your skin feels soft to your partner’s touch. It can be used as an all over skin moisturiser creating an effective energetic feeling of the skin.
The Shock Absorber hydrating and healing range is created with a Canarium Nut (nangai) Oil base emulsified with Sandalwood Water, and nangai nuts have their own set of great emollient properties. Canarium indicum (known as Nangai nuts in Vanuatu) is among the oldest and most important tree crops in Melanesia. Its oil contains healthy fatty acids which give it excellent emollient properties, penetrating your skin deep down. We combine this with the antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory skin care benefits of Sandalwood Water and infuse it all with a generous dollop of Sandalwood Oil to leave your skin refreshed, firm, healthy and hydrated all with the romantic and mysterious aroma of sandalwood.
