100% VEGETABLE GLYCERINE
Glycerine is a lubricant from palm and/or coconut oils. It acts as a humectant by moisturizing the skin through its ability to absorb water from the air. Glycerine also aids in the spreading ability of skin care products.
ORGANIC SUNFLOWER OIL has Oleic acids with high amounts of Vitamins A, D, and E, as well as beneficial amounts of lecithin and unsaturated fatty acids. Deeply nourishing and conditioning for the skin, it is highly recommended for recipes designed to treat dry, weathered, aged, and damaged skin. It has smoothing and moisturizing properties and is particularly good for lighter emulsions. Helps to reduce acne from excess oil and sebum clogging pores.
ORGANIC COCONUT OIL is used for its beneficial Lauric Acid in high quantities. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid, which is translated into monolaurin in the human or animal body. Monolaurin is the antiviral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride used by the human or animal to destroy lipid coated viruses such as HIV, herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza, various pathogenic bacteria including listeria monocytogenes and helicobacter pylori, and protozoa such as giardia lamblia.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is organic sulfur sourced from the oceans of the world. MSM occurs naturally in the human body. It makes up 5% of the human body and is essential for every organ, cell, tissue, hormone, enzyme, antibody, and function found in the body. This whole food is a beautifying mineral, and contributes to hair, skin, nail, and joint renewal and health. Bio-available MSM must be continually replenished for optimal youth, nutrition, and health.
ORGANIC KUKUI NUT OIL has been shown to be effective in soothing psoriasis and eczema. It does not leave an oily residue, and has a high linoleic and linolenic acid content. Kukui Nut Oil contains vitamins A, C, and E, providing antioxidants that help to protect the skin. This unique oil is able to penetrate into the deepest skin layers, while creating a protective shield that locks in moisture.
ORGANIC MACADAMIA NUT OIL is a priceless delight for the skin and has proven itself to be one of the best regenerative oils. It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, and closely resembles sebum (the oil naturally produced by one's skin to help protect it). Macadamia oil is a fabulous, protective oil with a high absorption rate and has been successfully used as a healing oil for scars, sunburns, minor wounds and other irritations.
VITAMIN E (Tocopherol) rounds out this wonder-scrub for natural preservation, free radical scavenging, antioxidant activity, and fat soluble skin cell food. This vitamin is a rich antioxidant and also has photo protectant qualities. When used as a moisturizer, it has important water binding abilities that improve the appearance of rough, dry and damaged skin.
