Natural glycerin helps serve as a substrate to allow skin to mature properly, helping people with diseases such as psoriasis and non-melanoma skin cancers.
Has a remarkable ability to retain moisture and is known as a “smart nutrient” because it adjusts moisture absorption based on humidity. Hyaluronic acid aids in tissue repair, strengthens the skin’s barrier, provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage, and reduces inflammation.
Acts as a natural skin conditioner, so it is readily accepted and tolerated by the skin, locking in moisture and creating a barrier. Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties to soothe and protect irritated skin.
Seabuckthorn Seed Oil
Dates back thousands of years and is well-known today for its healing and rejuvenating effects on the skin.
