A neutral cream to be used as mask or finishing cream and as a base for essential oils. Contains peach kernel oil and Vitamin E.
VITAMIN E's substantiated capabilities include: Protecting the epidermis from early stages of ultraviolet light damage; Increasing the efficacy of active sunscreen ingredients; Reducing the formation of free radicals upon skin exposure to UVA rays and other sources of skin stress; Preventing the peroxidation of fats, a leading source of cell membrane damage in the body; Reducing transepidermal water loss from skin and strengthens the skin's barrier function; Protecting the skin barrier's oil (lipid) balance during the cleansing process; Reducing the severity of sunburn. 2002 and 2008 studies both reported that vitamin E had protective antioxidant effects on the skin. The 2002 study demonstrated effects in people with vitiligo, a skin disorder. It concluded that vitamin E can provide protective effects to skin but may not affect vitiligo. The 2008 study noted that vitamin E has antioxidant effects on the skin, especially in the form of alpha tocopherol. It also noted that vitamin E can protect against "photoaging."
PEACH KERNEL OIL can be a beneficial alternative to nut oil. Moisture rich, lightweight and non-greasy the oil absorbs readily into the skin making it suitable for all skin types. Light, non-greasy and nourishing to dry skin, peach kernel oil is hypoallergenic for those with sensitive skin.
