Using natural, skin-loving, earth-friendly ingredients on your skin has almost endless benefits, but here's a quick run-down:
Using coconut oil on your lip and skin is great for a number of reasons. Coconut oil leaves skin feeling soft and moisturized, keeping dryness and flakiness away because it actually strengthens skin tissue and helps to eliminate dead skin cells. Coconut oil leaves a wonderful softness to your skin, absorbs quickly and can soothe eczema, sunburn, and psoriasis. Coconut oil also helps keep wrinkles from creeping up, because it contains Vitamin E, which is known to protect skin cells from damage.
Beeswax is normally used as a hardener in natural body products, helping to bind the oils and butter into something tangible that you can hold onto, but it's also great as a protectant, keeping a very thin layer on your lip & skin to combat irritants. It will sink into the skin just as the coconut oil will.
Organic Shea Butter
Shea Butter contains vitamins, minerals and fatty acids that are beneficial to skin. Shea Butter soothes, hydrates and balances your skin, and is wonderful to use on chapped lips, cracked heels, and basically, anywhere your skin is dry and needs some love. Shea butter is also a natural anti-inflammatory, which can help heal cuts and scrapes, lighten scar tissue and ease the pain of muscle fatigue. It's also a fantastic wrinkle reducer, because the vitamins in shea butter help maintain skin's elasticity and suppleness, while also leading to brighter, healthier skin from the inside out.
Organic Cocoa Butter
Cocoa Butter has a very high percentage of antioxidants. which makes it great for skin care. When used on the skin, cocoa butter can reduce the signs of aging (meaning wrinkles and age marks are less noticeable!), help lighten the appearance of scars, and protect your skin from environmental irritations and damage. Another great option for helping to soothe eczema, psoriasis, and rashes, cocoa butter is full of rich fatty acids, which is great for reducing inflammation.
Vitamin E is a nutrient and an antioxidant, which helps neutralize free radicals and protect skin. By helping to block those free radicals, Vitamin E oil aids in preventing the formation of wrinkles. It's a collagen production booster and helps support new skin cell growth, which in turn speeds up cell regeneration. Vitamin E oil can help in lightening age and sun spots on your skin and is great for your cuticles!
