Cocoa Butter is an ingredient that makes quality chocolate taste so delicious, but did you know that it also does wonders for the skin? A stable fat extracted from cacao beans, cocoa butter is rich in antioxidants and is a superb emollient that softens and protects chapped skin, relieves irritation, and diminishes signs of wrinkles and stretch marks.
Beeswax has healing powers that have been known and cultivated for centuries. Produced by bees and stored in the cell walls of honeycombs, beeswax is a natural emulsifier that helps to nourish, moisturize and protect the skin. These wonderful properties make it a popular ingredient in many skincare products.
Avocado Oil is widely-praised for its ability to penetrate deep into the skin’s surface and provides long-lasting, skin-enhancing moisture. In a study done at the Department of Food Engineering and Biotechnology, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in 1991, avocado oil was found to significantly increase the amount of collagen in the skin—an essential component in preventing the development of wrinkles. Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids, vitamins A, B1, B2 and D, lecithin, potassium and vitamin E, and also contains a concentrated amount of plant steroids that help the skin absorb nutrients. The amazing hydration properties of avocado oil make it ideal for excessively dry, dehydrated or mature complexions, as well as for people seeking relief from the dryness and itching of psoriasis, eczema and sun damage.
Peanut Oil is often used for medicinal purposes and in cooking—particularly in Southeast Asian cuisine. Extracted from peanuts (Arachis hypogeae), peanut oil has come into prominence due to the numerous health benefits it provides from treatment of diaper rash to relief for flaky scalp. When combined with other natural substances, peanut oil can help prevent the development of acne marks and blackheads.
Lactic Acid and the healing powers it contains have long been documented. Cleopatra is said to have regularly bathed in milk to pamper her skin. Modern science has isolated the key ingredient: lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy that accelerates the sloughing off of dead skin cells and reveals the healthy, smooth pink skin underneath. As we age, our skin’s ability to shed the dull-looking outer layer decreases, making lactic acid an essential ingredient in any skin-care regimen. Regular use of products containing lactic acid reduces the development of acne, helps the skin better absorb sunscreen and moisturizers, and provides a smooth, even surface for cosmetics, resulting in a reduced need to reapply makeup. Gentler than glycolic acid, lactic acid is ideal for those with sensitive skin.
Cucumber Extract is famous for its astringent and soothing, anti-inflammatory properties, and commonly used in facial creams, lotions, and cleansers. The extract has softening properties that are extremely beneficial on areas of hard,rough skin, such as knees, elbows and feet, and has also be shown to tone and tighten the skin.
Bearberry Extract (Arbutin) is an edible fruit that grows on shrubs and got its name because bears love to eat them. Studies have shown that bearberry extract (arbutin)—which is taken from the leaves, not the berries - effectively inhibits the production of melanin in the skin by shutting down tyrozinase, an enzyme that affects pigmentation. The lightening benefits are often compared to hydroquinone—without the side effects. Regular use of products containing bearberry extract can lead to a clearer, more uniform complexion.
Vitamin C plays an important role in the health and beauty of your skin. A report by the American Academy of Dermatology showed that Vitamin C can inhibit the production of the melanin, the pigment which gives the skin a dark color. When melanin production is blocked, lighter and brighter skin will emerge. Vitamin C has also been shown to reduce UVB damage and is essential in the synthesis of collagen, which helps skin heal and reduces scarring and the dark areas that often develop as a result.
Mulberry Extract
This tyrosinase inhibitor is isolated from the roots of paper mulberry plants grown in Korea. It is non-irritating and is most effective when combined with other skin lightening ingredients, such as bearberry extract and kojic acids.
