A super-rich, intensively moisturising, nourishing body butter with a unisex scent.
One of the main causes of skin ageing is excessive free radical damage caused by exposure to the sun and pollutants. Tropical oils have evolved to be sun-stable by way of a myriad of free radical busting antioxidants. This product is 95% organic tropical oils to halt free radical damage.
Dry skin also causes premature ageing and is completely preventable. Dry skin is caused by a failure of the skins natural outer barrier (the stratum corneum) to prevent excessive moisture escaping. The key to moisturising is repairing that layer with quality emollients and sealing moisture in. The epidermis draws moisture from the dermis below and from the air around it, so water in you moisturiser is only diluting the vital emollients.
The fatty acids that make up the natural plant oils in this body butter are the very same ones the skin uses to make its own emollient oils. Cheap mineral oils, derived from petrochemicals, form an occlusive seal, whereas plant oils are readily accepted by your skin and will be used to repair and maintain the stratum corneum without upsetting the ability to regulate moisture and temperature.
