When you go to the drugstore, you will be overwhelmed with the multitude of ingredients on the packaging...preferably in Latin. At the same time, there are repeated reports about the harmful effects on the environment of some ingredients, such as palm oil.
That's why you want to know 100% about every fabric so that you only buy the best of the best, right?
In this blog we will show you which 6 power oils are in our products to do something good for your skin and hair.
Castor oil is obtained from the seeds of the miracle tree or shrub "Ricinus Communis". It is known for its high-quality ingredients, as it consists of 90% ricinoleic acid, vitamin E and essential fatty acids. The oil gives your hair moisture and suppleness and can therefore even help against dandruff. Castor oil is also soothing, so it can be a boon for an irritated scalp. The oil also stimulates the subcutaneous tissue to form collagen. Collagens are fat deposits under the epidermis that help keep your hair strong and elastic.
You will find a large portion of castor oil in our hair soap .
rapeseed oil/beet cabbage oil
Rapeseed oil benefits from valuable substances such as vitamin E, K, provitamin A, lecinith and fatty acids. Vitamin E and provitamin A prevent rapid skin aging because they protect your skin like a light sunscreen. Vitamin E also provides your skin with moisture and makes it supple. Lecithin also has a moisturizing effect. The seeds of the plant contain what is known as sinapinic acid, which is one of the phenolic acids and serves as an organic UV filter.
Olive oil is not only good to use in the kitchen, but also for skin care. Thanks to its antibacterial effect, the oil helps with wound healing and also with dry skin and even neurodermatitis. Vitamin E and antioxidants contained in the oil stimulate cell renewal in the skin and even small wrinkles are said to be reduced. Olive oil can also be a real miracle cure for hair care. With a treatment (e.g. together with our MSM powder ) or the daily massage of a small amount of olive oil into your hair ends, it works against brittle and brittle hair.
Incidentally, castor, rapeseed and olive oil form the basis of our natural soaps and ensure that you are moisturized from head to toe.
Jojoba oil comes from the seeds of the jojoba bush and is actually liquid wax. The main components of the oil are vitamin E, provitamin A, vitamin B6 and various minerals. Vitamin B6, for example, regulates the flow of sebum in the skin. The fatty acids in jojoba oil are also moisturizing, which helps against dry skin.
Almond oil also contains valuable vitamins (A, B7, D, E) and minerals that make the skin supple and moisturizing. These ingredients can reduce or even prevent hair loss and prevent skin aging. Almond oil also acts as a light sunscreen.
You can find these two great oils in our lip care sticks .
Babassu is an American species of palm. Similar to coconut oil, the oil only liquefies when it comes into contact with the skin, giving it a soft skin feel. Babassu oil benefits from the fact that it is quickly absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin and at the same time moisturizes. The anti-inflammatory effect of babassu oil helps with blemishes and even acne. This oil forms the basis of our deodorant stick.
