ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS:
Organic and Fairly Traded Shea Butter from a co-operative in Ghana. Soothing and extremely therapeutic, it helps renew cracked, aged and damaged skin and can help heal bruising and soreness. It has mildly antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, good moisture-retaining properties and protects the skin from drying out. Shea butter gets to work deep in the skin and leaves it feeling soft, smooth and refreshed. Rich in vitamin A, E and good for all skin types. It too is suitable for preventing or treating stretch marks during and after pregnancy because of the phytosterol content.
Our organic lavender flowers from France are harvested at high altitudes. When lavender is grown at over 1400 meters, the plant produces more esters. If the oil is also distilled at high altitude, there is a lower air pressure. This means a lower temperature can be used when distilling and more of the very volatile chemicals come through from the plant to the oil. It is more than worth the effort and extra expense. This is a superb oil. The list of properties for lavender is one of the longest of all the aromatherapy oils. Some people get confused what to use it for and one of the best things it does is to act as a synergist. Whatever the attributes of the other essential oils in a blend, lavender seems to make those oils work even harder by being included. The high altitude lavender seems to work better on the emotional aspects of a problem. Lavender is the number one choice to use on minor burns and skin problems. It is calming to the nerves and can assist with depression but works best in small amounts. It’s a good analgesic for muscular aches and pains especially sports related injuries as well as rheumatism and arthritis. It works very well with rose for mature skincare.
Jojoba oil helps promote healing of the skin in many ways. It has antimicrobial properties, which means it actually discourages the growth of some bacterial and fungal microbes that attack the skin. In addition, the chemical composition of jojoba closely resembles that of the skin’s natural sebum, so it is easily absorbed and rarely causes allergic reactions, even in the most sensitive individuals.
We use nrefined Avocado oil containing palmitoleic acid which is an excellent fatty acid supplement for mature skin care, contains vitamin A, B, & E, amino acids and phospholipid lecithin.
