Oatmeal consists of key active ingredients such as beta glucan, which acts as a natural, deep penetrating moisturizer and avenanthramides, natural antihistamines that reduce skin irritations and itching. Also excellent exfoliating properties.
Chamomile is effective for all skin-types, acne, allergies, boils, burns, eczema, and inflamed skin conditions. Perfect for soothing sensitive skin.
Oatstraw is extremely nourishing to the skin. Oatstraw can help treat skin irritations, disorders, eruptions and burns.
Chickweed soothes irritated skin and soothes itch.
Cucumber is rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes essential for strong cell growth and repair. In addition, Cucumber Peel offers a natural source for a powerful antioxidant. Cucumber Peel Extract can be used to keep the facial skin soft. It also acts as a skin toner and can be used in astringents to revitalize stressed and tired skin, leaving it refreshed and radiant.
Zinc facilitates apoptosis, or programmed cell death, which is a natural part of your skin renewing itself. If apoptosis is delayed, as in the case of zinc deficiency, skin cells stick together instead of dying and sloughing off like they should, which leads to clogged pores. Zinc kills acne causing bacteria, reduces inflammatory response to bacteria when it invades a blocked pore which can cause severe irritation and reduces keratin (a tough protein that binds skin cells together. Too much keratin prevents cells from separating and leads to blocked pores, as is the case in acne. By reducing keratin zinc helps to keep skin pores open). Zinc is a DHT blocker, meaning it reduces the effect hormones have on the skin (excess sebum production). Zinc is also a powerful antioxidant.
