Include oils such as sesame and avocado to promote skin repair and healing
Many cosmetic ingredients can be synthetic and sit on the surface of the skin. By working with waxes, butters and oils, the combination carries the oils which are the most healing deeper into the skin.
Sesame and Avocado contain essential fatty acids and antioxidants that work to stimulate cellular activity deep beneath the skin surface resulting in a higher turnover of cells working their way to the surface which result is newly, rejuvenated skin.
Use arnica under your eyes
Arnica is more commonly known for sore muscles, bruising or swelling of the skin. All of these things can be found underneath the eyes, or at least tiredness can show through with puffiness and dark circles. Arnica aids in relieving swelling under the eyes (we put it in our concealer).
Is a natural preservative that is derived from the Korean dish Kimchi, which is fermented radish root. It acts as a natural preservative and has immense capability to kill bacteria. Using its properties in skincare help ensure bacteria is kept at bay.
Keep it organic and natural
This is more in relation to using less synthetics as those only sit on the surface of the skin, like wearing a mask. When using natural and organic botanicals, the skin is working with these ingredients in harmony to regenerate cells from the inside out.
Use a higher percentage of natural ingredients
From an ingredient standpoint there are studies done on certain raw materials, butters and oils that really do benefit the skin. We usually are using a higher percentage and this in turns benefits the skin in addition to all the other botanicals used in the product. They work together.
Ingredients which encourage healing
Waxes include: Beeswax, Candelilla, Carnauba – which all hold the oils and butters and help them stay in place.
Butters: Coconut, Shea – are great for healing and moisturizing the skin at its surface.
Oils: Avocado, Sesame, Rose Hip – antioxidant oils that are carried by the butters to a deeper layer of the skin where they provide more moisture and cellular repair which works its way back to the surface for fresh skin.
Transparency is essential so the consumer knows exactly what they are getting.
