Hemp seed oil is 80% essential fatty acids (EFAs), the highest amount of any plant. It contains the ideal ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 based on our cells needs. Hemp so closely matches our own skins lipids it is able to penetrate inside our cells and lubricate the surfaces between them, thus bringing the EFAs within our body. For this reason EFAs play a preventative role in skin ageing and help maintain a healthy moisture balance. The 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids is thought to be helpful in alleviating the symptoms of skin conditions like acne, psoriasis and ezcema. Hemp seed oil is also a good source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), rivalling flax seed oil and Evening Primrose Oil. Hemp seed oil contains a beneficial amount of amino acids, and vitamin E as well. It is a natural antioxidant, and is rich in Omega 9 keeping your skin supple and does not clog your pores. Potassium and calcium are also found in hemp seed oil, making it even healthier for our skin. Hemp seed oil contains ingredients that gives it unique anti-inflammatory properties that are not often found in other oils. This, added to its antioxidant properties, allows hemp oil to detoxify and clean our skin, as well as evening out skin tone.
Coconut oil skin care is a mighty first line of defense against a wide range of diseases. It's so potent, bacteria and other illness-causing organisms are crying foul in the sidelines. Those villainous microbes don't stand a chance. It has been common knowledge for several decades within the research community that it contains mostly Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) or Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs. These extraordinary fat molecules are the main reason why coconut oil is so amazing. MCFAs such as Caprylic acid (C~8), Capric acid (C~10), and Lauric acid (C~12) hate harmful microorganisms. They destroy bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites and yeast. When you use coconut oil on your skin, the benefits are profound and long-term. Once it completely penetrates the pores of your skin, it will eventually end up in your bloodstream for more health improving activities.
Mango butter comes from mango fruit, more precisely from seed kernel of the fruit. This exotic, tropical butter is relatively rare, but it has been used more and more in natural skin care due to its healing, moisturizing and rejuvenating properties. Mango butter is truly an anti-aging ingredient. It rejuvenates skin due to presence of antioxidants. It helps to neutralize toxins and to generate skin cell renewal. Some of the most valuable (for skin) acids in this butter are stearic, oleic (46%), linoleic acids (unsaturated Omega 6 fatty acid). It contains vitamins A, high amount of vitamin E, C, D, group B vitamins, folic acid, calcium, iron and magnesium. Mango butter protects skin from sun damage, so it has been used in UV protection lotions and creams. The butter is very versatile with a range of wonderful qualities ~ hydrating skin for a long period of time, lightening of age and sun damage spots, tightening skin and healing eczema, rashes, irritations and generally, bringing back a healthy tone to skin. Mango butter is also able to work deeper into the skin, soothing musclular aches and tensions.
Shea butter, also known as karite butter, is made from the nuts of karite nut trees (also called Mangifolia trees) that grow in the savannah regions of West and Central Africa. Karite trees, or shea trees, are not cultivated. They grow only in the wild, and can take up to 50 years to mature (they live up to 300 years!). In most parts of West Africa, destruction of the shea tree is prohibited because this little nut provides a valuable source of food, medicine, and income for the population. In fact, shea butter is sometimes referred to as “women’s gold” in Africa, because so many women are employed in the production of shea butter. Western countries are just beginning to recognize the considerable health and beauty benefits of shea butter, something Africans have known for thousands of years. Shea butter has been used to help heal burns, sores, cars, dermatitis, psoriasis, dandruff, and stretch marks. It may also help diminish wrinkles by moisturizing the skin, promoting cell renewal, and increasing circulation. Shea butter also contains cinnamic acid, a substance that helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays. Shea butter is a particularly effective moisturizer because contains so many fatty acids, which are needed to retain skin moisture and elasticity. Shea butter protects the skin from both environmental and free-radical damage. It contains vitamins A and E, and has demonstrated both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Shea butter is not recommended for people with nut or latex allergies.
Candelilla wax comes from Euphorbia cerifera or Euphorbia antisyphilitica, named the candelilla plant. These are succulents that are harvested in Mexico, especially in the northern states of Chihuahua, Nuevo Leon and Zacatecas. They also occur in the southern states of the USA, Texas, California and Arizona. The wax is deposited on the surface of the plants, and forms a protective coat preventing excessive water loss. Candelilla plants consist largely of hydrocarbons. It has now been found that candelilla wax possess substantial vasoconstrictive activity suitable for topically treating inflammation in humans or animals. Both Candelilla wax itself and the hydrocarbon fraction have been found to be therapeutically effective in treating inflammation of the skin, including acne. In addition to treating acne, the superior vasoconstrictive activity of candelilla wax makes it an effective anti~inflammatory treatment for skin disorders and other skin allergic reactions.
Camellia is a most penetrative oil. It is very high in Oleic acid (almost 82% of its fatty acid compositions), a mono-unsaturated Oemga 3 fatty acid, and rich in other essential fatty acids such as Omega 6 Linoleic acid. Its Oleic acid composition is the highest among all natural oils. Studies of Oleic and other fatty acids have proven that they are an excellent emollient, and a remarkable natural agent for the retention and enhancement of skin moisture. Studies have demonstrated that Oleic acid has unparalleled penetration power, capable of permeating deeply into the lower layers of the stratum corneum to greatly enhance the beneficial effects of collagen and elastin, rejuvenating cell growth to give skin support and flexibility. Oleic acid is known as an excellent transdermal carrier of cell rebuilding nutrients and bioactive compounds (collagen and elastin) into the skin to repair the damage caused by dryness, sun exposure and other factors. The result is restoration of the skin's elasticity and significant improvement in skin texture. It is very compatible with your skin. Oleic acid is the main fatty acid in human skin lipids, it is the main fatty acid produced by the human sebaceous or oil glands. As a result, camellia oil can be easily and effectively absorbed into the skin to work in synergy with the skin's own natural system to nourish cell membranes, replenish skin lipids and accelerate skin rejuvenation.
