Understanding what are in products you choose to use is extremely important to keeping irritations and sensitivities at bay. Avoiding dehydrating alcohols, sodium laureth sulphate, artificial fragrances, petro chemicals and mineral oils will help you on your way to calming sensitive skin and irritations.
Just because a product is natural however doesn't mean it is right for your skin type. Different oils and ingredients target different skin conditions which is why we have explained below some of the most natural ingredients that can help care for and protect delicate skin types:
Organic Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a thick, short-stemmed plant that stores water in its leaves. This stored water provides a gel that is well know for its healing effects on the skin. It contains a high level of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants which help to hydrate, cleanse and soften the skin. We use this in a lot of our products at Skincare with Compassion as it's such a wonderful ingredient.
Cold-pressed from the nut kernels of the Sweet Almond tree, this oil is mild and gentle. It easily penetrates into the skin to nourish and provide moisture. Due to its high content of fatty acids and vitamins A, E and D, it protects the skin from drying keeping it smooth and supple.
Kukui oil is expressed from the nuts of the kukui nut tree, native to tropical countries. It is a natural botanical source of a-linolenic and linoleic acid, Omega 3 & 6. This unique blend of fatty acids helps control skin barrier functions and prevents excess transdermal water loss. It deeply penetrates leaving the skin feeling silky and smooth. Kukui has been used by Hawaiians for years to treat dry skin, sunburn, eczema, and even psoriasis.
Derived from the kernel of the fruit from the shea tree. This is a wonderful natural rich moisturiser which is full of vitamins A and E. Shea Butter is indispensable for nourishing and soothing sensitive and inflamed skin which is why we have used this in our Pure & Gentle Moisturiser which is great for calming eczema.
Derived from the fruits of the Olive tree. Olive oil penetrates deep into the layers of the skin providing instant hydration and nourishment. It improves the skins texture helping to regenerate skin cells. Olive is high in antioxidants which helps to protect skin, and is also an anti-inflammatory.
Sunflower Seed Oil is derived from the seeds of the sunflower plant. The main component of sunflower oil is Linoleic acid which is a polyunsaturated fatty acid with potent healing properties. Sunflower Seed Oil is rich in nutrients, antioxidants and extremely high in Vitamin E which is essential for preventing skin cell damage. This oil is very effective in skin care and improves the appearance of the skin helping to retain moisture and prevent the premature signs of ageing.
