Crocodile oil (extracted from the fatty tissues of crocodiles) has been used as a natural remedy and a skin healer for centuries across numerous cultures including Ancient Egypt, Africa and Australia. Crocodiles are regarded as living fossils due to their resistance to evolutionary changes and believed to have the strongest immune system in the world. Crocodile oil is extraordinary for the high-penetration of skin, has the ability to keep out invading bacteria, counteract UV induced hyper-pigmentation of the skin and rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids known for its natural anti-inflammatory properties.
Beeswax has emollient, anti-bacterial, soothing and softening properties and helps the skin to retain moisture. It also contains vitamin A, which is essential for human cell development.
Coconut oil is very good at hydrating skin. It sinks in deep, conditions, moisturizes, and softens skin. Skin is kept clean by an oily substance called sebum. When sebum mixes with too much dirt, bacteria, and dead skin cells it can clog pores and lead to acne and other blemishes. Coconut oil naturally clears away dirt, grime, and dead skin cells.
Grapeseed oil can delay skin aging by minimizing the damage caused by free radicals due to its antioxidant properties. Grapeseed oil can provide protection against sun damage as well. It has astringent properties and therefore, can tighten the skin. The linoleic acid found in grapeseed oil can be very beneficial in skin conditions like acne, dermatitis and eczema. Linoleic acid can soothe and nourish the skin, and help it to repair.
Sunflower seed oil is great at retaining moisture in the skin. It also provides a protective barrier that resists infection. Its calming and emollient properties have been known for years. Sunflower seed oil contains an extremely high amount of vitamin E, which is crucial in the prevention of damage to sensitive skin cells by ultraviolet light, or UVA, from the sun.
