What’s in our Palm Melts?
Have you ever wondered what is in our products, and why they are all natural ?
Our palm melts and lotion candles only contains 7 ingredients! Yes you heard that right 7 ingredients that are very well known for skin health and are easy to read so you know exactly what you are putting on your skin!
1. Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil is one of the oils that is amazing for all skin types and is especially great for acne prone skin, this is because it is noncomedogenic, which basically means it does not clog your pours and is super light on the skin. In addition to that it also helps balance oily skin, this is because when your skin is excessively dry it starts to produce excess oils that tend to clog your pores leading to oily skin and acne, but with hemp seed oil it helps with skin dryness hence regulating the oil production from your skin causing less acne breakouts!
2. Shea Butter
Shea butter is amazing for stretch marks and helps reduce them, I highly recommend it for pregnancy to help with reducing the stretch marks on our growing bellies, it is also anti-aging and anti inflammatory meaning it reduces any
redness or inflammation on the skin ( which can help with eczema inflammations), and once again Shea butter is another oil that's amazing for acne prone skin and can also help with healing blemishes and breakouts, and on top of all that it is
super moisturizing to the skin!
3. Mango Butter
Mango butter is another great butter for being anti- inflammatory, your hands or skin gets super red and dry in the winter time this butter is perfect to help with that, helping with eczema, and also an amazing one for acne prone skin and blemishes. In addition mango butter is amazing for stretch marks, I've been using our palm melts on my growing baby bump and definitely have seen a huge difference with stretch marks. Lastly it provides great UV light protection, this is because mango butter contains salicylic acid and antioxidants, which protect from sun damage!
4. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is made up of medium chain fatty acids that help
reduce dryness, allowing your skin to retain moisture. It provides a
protective barrier, helping shield skin from environmental toxins
you're faced with everyday. It helps to diminish the signs of aging
when used on a regular. Coconut oil has a soothing, calming effect. It
can help reduce temporary redness. Lastly it is anti bacterial and
helps with acne prone skin as well.
5. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble, essential nutrient with anti-inflammatory properties. It helps support our immune system, cell function, and skin health. It helps fight all the toxicity around us. Vitamin E may be beneficial to reducing UV damage to skin. Used as an oil it is amazing for soothing your skin, especially in these cold winters.
Beeswax helps the skin by adding a protective layer on the skin. Beeswax is also humectant, this means that it attracts water. Which makes it have great qualities that can help the skin stay hydrated. Beeswax can also be a natural exfoliator, adding it to your weekly exfoliating for your skin helps take away dead skin cells. In addition, it's antibacterial element allows it to help add relief to certain skin issues such as psoriasis and eczema. In the past beeswax was used as an antibacterial to help heal burns and wounds!
7. Soy wax
Soy wax is an all natural wax that's safe to burn and Parabens free and Phthalates free, making it completely skin safe. In addition soy wax has amazing skin benefits because of it is creamy and soft helping to lock in moisture by adding a thin layer of wax to lock all the other oils in. It is also amazing to use during a massage, and best of all it's vegan!
