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.
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.
Lavender infusion can help with lowering anxiety & stress, as well as issues sleeping. It helps reduce inflammation, dry skin, eczema, and acne. It promotes quick healing on small wounds & blemishes, and fights infection. It is a great all-over health-promoting skin tonic.
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.
Avocado Oil enhances the skin’s ability to generate collagen, which keeps your skin firm, smooth and rejuvenated, and shields the skins against age-related wrinkles, fine lines and other aging signs. It soothes dry, itchy skin as it is easily absorbed. Avocado oil can be used as a natural treatment for a multiplicity of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, and hastens the healing of small wounds.

Organic Unrefined Cocoa Butter
Organic unrefined cocoa butter gives you glowing, softer, smoother skin. Cocoa butter is amazing for dry skin and can actually penetrate further than the top layer of the skin, meaning it moisturizes deep-down and really nourishes the skin. Cocoa butter contains a number of different antioxidants which can kill-off a wide range of different free-radicals. In fact, cocoa butter contains a much higher antioxidant concentration then even blueberries and other superfoods. Cocoa butter is widely noted to help reduce stretch marks. Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, meaning it can penetrate deep-down into the skin and hydrate from within. Cocoa butter can also be helpful for many skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and skin irritation.
Aloe vera is traditionally used to help soothe angry skin – burns, wounds, and sunburn. It also helps calm dry, flaky skin, eczema, psoriasis, and it’s good for acne.
