Organic Coconut, Jojoba, Olive, Castor, and Argan Oil. 100% Plant-Based Scent : Organic Essential Oils of Bergamot FCF, Blood Orange and Patchouli.
Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is beautifully hydrating but also cleansing due to its anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. A medium-chain fatty acid that shares the composition of sebum, (the oil naturally produced by our skin), coconut oil can help reinforce the skin's natural barrier while improving elasticity and restoring moisture. It is rich in antioxidants such as vitamin E, provitamin A and ferulic acid, all of which protect skin cells from damage and reduce fine lines and age spots. It is also rich in lauric acid, which has a history of being used to fight pathogens. It has incredible anti-microbial properties and studies have shown that its effective in treating acne. The vitamin E found in coconut oil also soothes eczema, sunburn and psoriasis, and its antiviral and antifungal benefits even help to treat bug bites. Each of the three fatty acids found in coconut oil, capric, lauric and caprylic acid, kill candida, a common cause of fungal infection on your skin.
Organic Olive Oil
Olive oil has been used in skin care since ancient Egyptian times. It contains three major antioxidants: vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols. Antioxidants, when topically applied, help protect the skin from premature skin aging. Vitamin E partly accounts for the anti-aging benefits of olive oil because it helps restore skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light. Hydroxytyrosol, a rather rare compound found in olive oil, also prevents free radical damage to the skin.
Organic Argan Oil
Argan oil is exceptionally healing as it is rich in vitamin A, vitamin E and is packed with anti-oxidants, omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid. Research shows that when applied to skin, it eases inflammation while moisturizing and the tocopherol from the vitamin E helps to boost cell production while promoting healthy skin and hair.
Organic Jojoba Oil
Like coconut oil, the composition of jojoba very closely resembles that of human sebum, the natural oils produced by our skin. It is rich in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid (omega 6) which has been shown to reduce and prevent acne as well as UV-induced hyper-pigmentation. It is packed with vitamin E, B-complex, copper, zinc, selenium, iodine, and chromium.
Organic Castor Oil
Used therapeutically since ancient Egyptian times, castor oil has incredible healing abilities. It is also known as "Palma Christi" or "Hand of Christ." Castor oil is a Triglyceride, comprised of fatty acids, 90 percent of which is ricinoleic acid, thought to be responsible for castor oil's unique healing abilities. Castor oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and is high in vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and omega 6 and 9 beneficial fatty acids. Its ricinoleic acid content helps increase circulation to the skin.
According to North Carolina State University, castor oil can also help to cleanse the skin of dead skin cells that are clogging the sebaceous glands, pulling out impurities in the pores. It is detoxifying and helps to break up oils on the face that clog glands and pores. It contains a compound called undercylenic acid, which can help to disinfect the skin and kill bacteria that cause skin conditions such as acne. According to Palomar Community College, it is an excellent skin emollient and even helps with skin conditions like dermatitis, which can cause severely rough, dry skin.
Native to the Calabrian region of Italy, Bergamot is an important staple in Italian folk medicine. In aromatherapy it is used to harmonize and brighten the spirit, and it has been shown in studies to be relaxing, lowering symptoms of anxiety and even lowering blood pressure. Bergamot has a cleansing effect on the mind and body. Bergamot oil is the only citrus peel oil with the distinction of containing up to 30% of the fruity-woody-floral ester linalyl acetate - a valuable antioxidant also found in Lavender. Like green tea and red wine, it is rich in antioxidant polyphenols. The "FCF" in our Bergamot means the sun-sensitizing elements have been removed, so it is safe for use in the sun :)
Blood Orange is native to the Mediterranean and Asia and is used traditionally to improve the mental state and ease anxiety. It is both calming to the nervous system and used to uplift the spirit. Studies have shown it reduces symptoms of anxiety. On skin, its powerful antioxidant properties are anti-inflammatory.
Used traditionally in folk medicine for treating skin irritations, and in aromatherapy for grounding, soothing and to bring peace. It has high anti-inflammatory and healing properties and promotes harmony. In studies, inhalation of Patchouli is shown to calm the nervous system.
