Aloe Vera is an all natural moisturizing agent. Aloe vera consists of 75 nutrients, 20 minerals, 12 Vitamins, 18 amino acids and 200 active enzymes. Aloe Vera contains Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6 and B12, Vitamin C and E, folic acid and Niacin. Minerals found in Aloe Vera include copper, iron, sodium, calcium, zinc, potassium, chromium, magnesium and manganese. Aloe Vera not only cures the skin, it also contains salicylic acid and its salts salicylates; it helps to curb inflammation. Salicylic acid is like aspirin and has the potential of reducing inflammation by destroying the bacteria that cause inflammation.
Bergamot is a natural disinfectant. This antibacterial action makes the oil great for those with acne, as it helps to kill the bacteria on the skin before it can react to create blackheads and pimples. Bergamot has an added property of helping to control excess oil production in the skin, attacking acne from two sides. Bergamot is also an antiseptic, meaning that it encourages wound healing and skin regeneration. If you have old acne scars, this oil can help the skin heal faster. Even better, it can help prevent new scars and fade old ones. In fact, Bergamot is a reputed treatment for scars and stretch marks, as it helps regulate the distribution of skin’s natural pigment—melanin—while evening out skin tone.
Witch Hazel is one of nature's best astringents. There is probably no better tonic or toner for skin care preparations. It is particularly beneficial for oil and problem skin through its more gentle properties.
Honey is reputed to have antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties and has been used to treat a variety of ailments such as cuts, wounds and burns. Honey is also said to have anti-aging properties. It is a humectant, having the ability to attract and retain moisture, and to increase the amount of moisture in the skin without making it oily; hence, it can be used as a skin softener and in anti-aging products.
Grape Seed Oil is an important source of antioxidants, nutrients that traps the free radicals generated by the skin lipids. The high contents of omega 6 fatty acids can assist with skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. It is rapidly absorbed by the skin, but light and dry. There are some good phytosterols in this oil, all of which help with barrier repair, reduction of inflammation, and reduction of itching. With a high content of linoleic acid you'll get some barrier repair, moisturizing, and reduction in trans epidermal water loss. It is a great choice for any formulation that would deal with damaged and stressed skin. Also has mild astringent qualities and a drier oil making it beneficial for acne-prone skin.
