Unlike the skin on the arms and legs, the face is delicate and also the most exposed part of the body. For these reasons we’ve thoughtfully created this Eye and Face cream that is rich, moisturising and gentle and non-comedogenic (non pore-clogging). Blends of fair trade and organic shea butter with organic jojoba, sunflower seed oil and lavender essential oil, this little jar of goodness goes a long way with only a pea sized amount per application required. Shea butter is the African treatment for skin conditions such as eczema, scarring sunburn, itching, insect bites & skin blemishes. Shea butter is the fat that is extracted from the nut from the shea (Karite) tree, mainly grown in West Africa. With its creamy texture it is a delight to apply to the skin. Scientific investigations have found that shea nut butter does not pose any known or likely allergy risk to consumers, including those with peanut or tree nut allergies. We use organic and fair trade shea butter which contains naturally occurring vitamins A, E & F, helping to maintain optimum skin health. Improving elasticity and abundant in fatty acids that help with collagen production, to help maintain youthful skin and with its mild SPF (thought to range from 4-6 SPF, naturally), anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reduce skin irritation shea butter is a true skin healer. Shea butter not only works on the surface of the skin, creating a protective barrier but it also penetrates deeply into the dermal layers of the skin to heal within. Native to southern Arizona and California, jojoba oil has been used in skincare for centuries. Extracted by cold pressing the jojoba seed, jojoba oil, whilst called an oil, it is actually a liquid wax ester. Another non-comedogenic oil, jojoba oil is so alike to the skin’s own naturally produced oils (sebum) that it is readily absorbed without any oily residue and will consequently help regulate and balance excessively oily skin. Rich in vitamins A and E, and omega-6 fatty acids which are essential components of the skin’s barrier. This barrier protects on the skin’s surface and combined with the anti-inflammatory effects of the vitamin E, allows the skin to heal and regenerate its cells. It also acts as a humectant, meaning it works to retain moisture in the skin. Rich in antioxidants and with high anti-bacterial properties, jojoba oil is excellent in promoting skin health and combatting the ageing process and of course fighting skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis. Our sunflower seed oil is cold pressed and organic for the ultimate in skincare. Sunflower seed oil is non-comedogenic and therefore does not clog the pores (which can create break-outs). Anti-oxidant rich sunflower seed oil helps neutralise free radicals which can damage our skin cells. Helping promote cell regeneration, this wonder oil is anti-inflammatory and is therefore ideal for many a skin condition where the skin becomes inflamed. The vitamin E that is naturally abundant in sunflower seed oil helps protect the collagen and elastin in the skin and is therefore considered anti-aging. This light and golden oil is also high in vitamin A which is a natural anti-oxidant and like vitamin E helps regenerate the skin cells. For an incredibly beneficial yet also beautifully scented eye and face cream, we’ve added a few drops of Lavender essential oil. The lavender flower is yet another of nature’s wonders with its healing benefits being seemingly endless. It is a naturally antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory oil so works to soothe the skin whilst also helping to rid the skin of acne, spots and blemishes and heal within. This also renders lavender oil excellent for acne, scarring, soothing and calming itchy skin, or indeed skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It is excellent on sunburnt skin and equally so for oily skin. It even acts as an insect repellent.
