Following are the reasons these ingredients are the ones included in Edye’s Face & Body Butter’s formula.
Shea Butter: nourishes the skin with vitamins A, E, and F. Vitamins A and E help maintain the skin and keep it clear and healthy. They’re particularly helpful for sun-damaged skin, and they help prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines. Vitamin F acts as a skin protector and rejuvenator. It soothes rough, dry, or chapped skin and helps soften dry or damaged hair. Shea butter is high in unsaponifiables, and that high level is one of the properties that make shea butter so invaluable in treating the aforementioned conditions. Also, shea butter easily penetrates the skin—without clogging pores. It allows the skin to breathe. It has a high level of cinnamic acid, a natural sunscreen. And shea butter is anti-inflammatory.
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil: Olive oil contains a variety of antioxidants—including vitamins A and E—but the most potent compound is hydroxytyrosol, a very rare but potent antioxidant that prevents free-radical damage and absorbs deeply. Olive oil also moisturizes by forming a protective barrier that traps moisture on your skin.
Avocado Oil: The sterolins found in avocado oil reduce blemishes, repair damaged skin, and increase collagen production naturally. A few of the vitamins found in avocado oil for skin rejuvenation are vitamin A; various B vitamins, including B1 and B2; and vitamins D and E, as well as beta-carotene, potassium, and lecithin.
Coconut Oil: Contains the most lauric acid of any substance on Earth. Your body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, a monoglyceride that can actually destroy lipid-coated viruses and bacteria. Coconut is composed of medium-chain fatty acids that are easily digested and readily cross cell membranes. Coconut oil has powerful antioxidants and never goes rancid.
Mango Butter: The natural emollient properties of mango butter help in wound healing and regenerative activity. Mango butter has been traditionally used for its skin-softening, soothing, moisturizing, and protective properties; to restore skin cells’ flexibility; and to reduce skin cell degeneration. And it has a protective effect against ultraviolet radiation. Mango butter is used for the treatment of wrinkles, and most who use it notice decreased signs of aging and the disappearance of lines and wrinkles within four to six weeks of daily use.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil: Distilled from the seeds of wild carrot, also known as Queen Anne’s lace. The oil has high carotol content that rejuvenates skin. The oil is also taken orally for regeneration of liver tissue and is regularly used as a digestive tonic.
Organic Rosemary Antioxidant: Organic rosemary oil antioxidant is a natural preservative that contains healthy quantities of rosmarinic acid, which is essential for stabilizing the shelf life of body care products.
