Shea Butter is a creamy fat found in nuts, so it’s no wonder its superpower is adding rich moisture and suppleness to skin. It contains several types of fatty acids, including oleic, linoleic, palmitic and stearic, which all help to soften skin texture and improve skin’s natural barrier against damage from environmental pollutants. Shea butter also contains anti-inflammatory nutrients that help ease swelling, redness and irritation.
Chamomile is a natural anti-inflammatory and can help soothe blemishes, redness, rashes, irritation, itchiness, and rosacea, making it is especially sensitive skin-friendly. It’s been shown to have lightening properties, and may even possibly lift pigment from scars. Anti-oxidants may help skin regenerate and slow down signs of aging.
Avocado oil is chock-full of skin-loving nutrients like vitamins D, K, A, and E, antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin, and fatty acids including linolenic and lecithin. It can act as an emollient to help nourish the skin barrier, which in turn helps lock in moisture and hydrate for softer, healthier-looking skin. Anti-oxidants fight free radicals that can incite aging as well as helping to protect from sun damage. Oleic acid is believed to promote collagen production, while this oil’s healing tendencies help calm skin.
