About the Ingredients
Organic Shea Butter
Organic Shea Butter is fat that’s been extracted from shea tree nuts. It’s off-white or ivory-coloured and has a creamy consistency that’s easy to spread on your skin. Most shea butter comes from shea trees in West Africa.High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using shea butter on your body, especially your face, can condition, tone, and soothe your skin. Some benefits of Shea Butter on skin are
Anti-inflammatory and healing propertiesShea butter has been proven to have extensive anti-inflammatory properties. Redness and swelling on your face may be calmed by applying shea butter products.
Emollient propertiesThe rich tree-nut oils in shea butter can soak into your skin, creating a smooth and soft barrier that seals in moisture. This moisturising effect can last several hours.
Anti-ageing propertiesShea butter has also been reported to have anti-aging properties. If true, the exact mechanism isn’t well-known and may be related to promoting collagen production or decreasing the breakdown of collagen that’s already present
Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it’s often touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture.
Sunflower has been demonstrated to be effective in alleviating a number of skin conditions including dryness, acne, sun damage, and premature ageing. Its efficiency comes from a compound called beta-carotene, which is commonly found in fruits and vegetables.In addition, sunflower oil is rich in antioxidants that help in the elimination of free radicals and toxins responsible for certain skin issues due to cell damage.
Prevents Premature Ageing Earlier signs of ageing usually occur on the face and are characterised by fine lines and wrinkles. These signs occur when the cells of your skin get damaged due to free radicals and toxic compounds.Sunflower contain compounds that protects collagen and elastin (skin’s connective tissues) giving a more youthful appearance.
Fights Acne Acne is mostly caused by the excessive production of sebum by sebaceous glands. It occurs when oil, sweat, and other impurities get blocked and infected by bacteria.Sunflower Oil will help create a protective layer essential in preventing bacteria to come in contact with your skin and thus prevent acne flare ups.Sunflower oil is also loaded with vitamin E and fatty acids for nourishing your skin while offering protection at the same time.
Prevents Sun Damage Exposure to sunlight and environmental conditions accounts for most skin problems that people experience. It’s very unfortunate because the environment contains large quantities of free radicals responsible for triggering certain types of cancer, including skin cancer.The good news is that by applying sunflower oil topically on your skin, you will create a protective layer to shield environmental toxins and harmful rays of the sun.
