Ingredients: Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Mango Butter, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Beeswax, Vitamin E Oil, Organic Evening Primrose Oil, Organic Plant Collagen, Organic Vanilla Essential Oil, Organic Lavender Essential Oil, Vanilla Fragrance
BENEFITS OF EACH INGREDIENT:
Golden Jojoba Oil - Known to be one of the more expensive oils, Jojoba oil acts like second skin, providing protection and emolliency while still allowing the skin to breathe. Can help control acne and oily skin or scalp since excess sebum actually dissolves in jojoba. Anti oxidant, may help extend the life of other oils.
100% Pure Virgin Coconut Oil - Coconut oil is famous throughout the world not only as an edible oil and hair tonic, but also as an excellent massage oil and "smoothener" for the skin. As an exfoliant, including coconut oil as an agent with other exfoliating or grainy materials like salts and sugars can vastly improve the effects. You will successfully scrape off excess dead skin and clean out whatever substances have blocked the pores without leaving the skin feeling irritated. The natural soothing nature of the oil combines with the grainy, exfoliating material perfectly, and leaves your skin with an even color, closed pores, and a soft texture.
Mango Butter - Derived from the rain-forests of the world, the deliciously sweet fruit of the mango is full of moisture. Mangoes not only nourish the body internally, but they also provide skin with sweet treats. These include moisture, and vitamins A, C and E, which work to combat free radicals. Free radicals are found in the sun's rays and air pollution. When applied to the skin, mango butter has the ability to protect it from the sunburn as well as sooth sunburned/damaged skin.
Cocoa Butter - Because of its natural make-up, and its nutrient and fatty acid content, cocoa butter is amazing for dry skin and can actually penetrate further than the top layer of the skin, meaning it moisturizes deep-down and really nourishes the skin. Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, meaning it can penetrate deep-down into the skin and hydrate from within. Cocoa butter can also be helpful for many skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and skin irritation.
Shea Butter - Shea butter contains vitamins such as vitamin A and vitamin E. Vitamin A helps in the reconstruction of skin cell damage and vitamin E is an antioxidant to keep skin safe from harmful free radicals. In addition, the skin readily absorbs the shea butter without leaving an oily surface on the skin.
Beeswax - In its natural state, beeswax is firm but pliable. Melted and combined with other ingredients, beeswax adds body to skin care products, making creams thicker. Like other beehive products, including honey and royal jelly, beeswax offers anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits, making it potentially beneficial for treating minor skin irritations. When added to skin care products, beeswax acts as an emollient and a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin and sealing it in. Beeswax also contains vitamin A, which may be beneficial in softening and rehydrating dry skin and in cell reconstruction.
Vitamin E Oil - Pure vitamin E oil is extremely versatile. Vitamin E oil promotes healing and is an active ingredient in many products available for skin and nails. Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that prevents premature aging.
Evening Primrose Oil - Primrose oil helps in adding moisture to the skin and promoting healthy maintenance of collagen, it improves skin elasticity and prevents premature sagging as well as wrinkles and fine lines. Primrose oil is also known to maintain a balance of moisture in amazing ways, providing it a young and glowing look. This oil also boosts cell repair and leaves you with a fresh and radiant look. Many factors tend to damage the skin cells which make the skin dull and patchy due to deposition of dead skin cells. Therefore, there should be continuous production and repair of new cells to replace the old ones. Primrose oil helps in regeneration of new cells as well as repairing of damaged cells to provide you with an everlasting glow from within.
Plant Collagen - Plant collagen is contained in cosmetics simply because it can exist at room temperature. It is made by modifying polysaccharides through fermentation of yeast, which is heated and denatured simple proteins in the form of gelatins, also known as hydrolyzed collagen. Clinical studies have shown that hydrolyzed collagen can actually inhibit fibroblast production of collagen and collagen formation. Products advertised as collagen in cosmetic creams and lotions, are just simple proteins which hydrate the skin, and are biologically inactive in human skin.
Vanilla Essential Oil - Vanilla is a good source of B-vitamins like niacin, thiamin, Vitamin B6 and pantothenic acid which play an important role in the maintenance of healthy skin. The antioxidant properties of vanilla protect your skin from damage caused by environmental pollutants and toxins.
Lavender Essential Oil and Buds - Lavender is great for skincare due to its antiseptic and antifungal properties which help to reduce scarring and speed up healing. Lavender essential oil is used to treat various skin problems. This herb is widely used in beauty products and fragrances due to its various skin benefits. Lavender is also widely knows to cure various sleep disorders, heals burns, controls hair loss, treatment of insomnia, depression and anxiety, cures headaches and relieves nausea and aching muscles.
