Lanolin is one of the most skin-loving ingredients around. It is derived from the grease extracted from sheep’s wool. Its molecular structure most closely resembles that of human skin lipids, and it’s a semi-occlusive breathable barrier, so it protects and absorbs at the same time. Once it penetrates into the skin, it holds up to 400 times its weight in water, so it’s a fantastic moisture reservoir for skin. Excellent for very dry, and even chapped skin.
Borage, aka Starflower, aka Bee Bread, contains high levels of calcium & iron, potassium, zinc, B & C vitamins, and beta carotene. It has very high levels of gamma linoleic acid, an important essential fatty acid. Borage is anti-inflammatory, helping with arthritis, and reduces itch & dryness associated with eczema & other skin disorders.
Borage is used to restore the adrenal glands to their natural balance, which in turn creates a calmer body & mind. Its natural soothing effects lifts the spirits & softens the nerves. Borage works well to ease depression & mood swings.
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E prevents water loss from the skin, and helps it to retain its natural moisture. Thus, it makes dull, dry skin look healthy and well-moisturised. If it is used for the purpose of deep pore cleansing of dry skin on a regular basis, it restores the normal oil balance of the skin.
Calendula (the Marigold flower) can treat and disinfect minor wounds. The antibacterial and immunostimulant properties of the plant make it extremely useful in treating slow-healing cuts and cuts in people who have compromised immune systems. The herb stimulates the production of collagen at wound sites and minimizes scarring. It is also known to brighten skin and protect from blemishes.
Chamomile is a great herb for its anti-inflammatory properties – it has been scientifically tested and proven to be highly effective for skin care conditions such as eczema. It is particularly suited to sensitive skins that are prone to inflammation. Chamomile is suitable for all skin types, and is used in skincare for babies for its gentleness.
