Today's blog post is simple, just like the ingredients that I use in the lotions and scrubs. It's been a while since I have talked about the oils used in our scrubs and lotion so I thought I would share the short list of all the benefits of the oils used.
Does your skin itch? Is it irritated? Do you want it feeling smoother and softer? Is there redness or inflammation?
Below is the short list of benefits in each of the oils we use and what each one provides to soothe and care your skin.
- Shea Butter: Rich in vitamin A, E, and F; Provides Relief To Itchy And Peeling Skin; Restores elasticity of the skin; Reduces razor irritation and bumps
- Jojoba Oil: Moisturizing- humectant meaning it seals the skin and keeps in moisture; Non-comdeogenic, Hypoallergenic, Anti-Oxidant.
- Emu Oil: Anti-aging properties, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, helps with wound healing, helps with hair and nail growth!
- Aloe Vera Oil: Anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, and rich in vitamin C and E, keeping your skin young and happy
- Canola Oil: This oil is also rich in vitamins E and K, and reduces skin problems and aging signs like fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and spots. It also can help with acne.
- Coconut Oil: This oil is not only good for moisturizing which helps skins elasticity and anti-aging, but rich in fatty acids and anti-oxidants like vitamin E that help protects from free-radicals.
- Grape-seed oil: This oil is high in linoleic acid, promotes moisture retention, soothes acne, moisturizes, won't clog pores.
- Olive Oil: Has anti-oxidants, anti-bacterial effects, moisturizes, and contains Vitamins A, D, and E
- Non-GMO Soybean Oil: Last but not least, soybean oil has a nourishing, softening and moisturizing effect on skin, hair and nails. It replenishes skin lipids and restores suppleness and flexibility. As a skin care ingredient, soy is said to diminish wrinkles, help reverse sun damage and even tighten sagging skin.
The benefit of these oils work synergistically, which means they are even better together!
