Avocado Oil yields a rich and deep penetrating oil, rich in vitamins A, D and E, lecithin, as well as potassium – known as the youth mineral. It is an ideal ingredient for people with dehydrated, sun or climate damaged skin.
Jojoba is widely used in products for treatment of dry skin. The structure of jojoba closely resembles that of your own skin sebum, your skin’s lubricating medium, and because of this, it has a natural affinity to the skin. Your skin readily absorbs jojoba without making the skin feel greasy or tacky. Jojoba oil is well tolerated by people with skin problems and does not aggravate acne.
Shea Butter is an all-natural vitamin A cream. Shea Butter has shown to be a superb moisturizer, with exceptional healing properties for the skin. Many users of Shea Butter have reported that Shea Butter promotes and accelerates wound healing.
