Oatmeal is a soothing, anti-inflammatory grain that helps calm dry, inflamed and sensitive skin and helps with the painful itching associated with eczema and minor skin irritations. Finely ground oatmeal, or oat flour, binds moisturizing emollients to your skin which helps dry skin.
White Kaolin Clay is one of the mildest and purest of all natural clays. It can be used on even the most sensitive skin. Since it does not draw oils from the skin, it can be used on dry skin and it gently cleans, exfoliates, and eliminates clogged pores, while improving circulation.
Castor oil is richer in vitamin E and fatty acids than most plant oils. It penetrates the skin and helps to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen and elastin, which can soften and hydrate the skin. Being especially rich in naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ricinoleic acid, castor oil has the advantage of a dual-action approach - it hydrates skin and fights bacteria at the same time, helping to end the cyclical nature of itching and irritation.
Pumpkin seed oil is rich in vitamin E, zinc, omega 3- and 6- fatty acids as well as antioxidants which helps the skin in retaining moisture, fighting free radicals and maintaining a youthful appearance. The high amounts of zinc and vitamin E also improve skin tone, help wounds heal more rapidly, fight acne and help with skin renewal. It has the ability to hydrate the skin but not leave an oily residue, leaving your skin looking fresh and clean.
Argan Oil soothes inflammation and irritation while reducing the appearance of scarring and balancing skin’s natural moisture and oil production, which makes it ideal for acne-prone skin. It is effective for diminishing blemishes and promoting the growth of new skin while boosting its suppleness.
Hazelnut Oil is high in oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid which is very hydrating and ideal for drier skin. Oils higher in oleic acid can help with dry and sensitive skin, reducing skin sensitivity as they work effectively to reverse the inflammatory response in various layers of the skin. It is quickly absorbing and non-comedogenic, which means it does not clog up your skin’s pores.
