Peppermint Skin Repair Ingredients
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.
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.
