Cocoa Butter has been called the ultimate moisturiser and has been used to keep skin soft and supple for centuries. It is one of the most stable, highly concentrated natural fats known, and melts at body temperature so that it is readily absorbed into the skin. Cocoa Butter is often recommended for treatment of skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. When applied topically, it creates a barrier between sensitive skin and the environment and also helps retain moisture.
Cocoa butter contains a large proportion of minerals including calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper and iron, all of which are in a highly bioavailable form. Cocoa butter is a great source of antioxidants, which help combat free radicals and help save your skin from the inevitable signs of aging and environmental stressors.
Cocoa butter is widely noted to help reduce stretch marks.
Jojoba oil is known as the oil that mostly closely resembles human sebum, so the uses and benefits to skin and hair are high. Because of its affinity for the skin Jojoba Oil is deeply moisturising – it has the ability to penetrate the skin further than most oils.The remarkable thing about Jojoba Oil is that it has the ability to regulate oil production by the skin. And while it may seem counter intuitive to put oil on oily skin the fact is that applying Jojoba Oil to the skin can actually reduce excess oil production that might lead to spots.
