About the ingredients:
Hemp seed oil is rated at zero on the comedogenic scale, meaning it will not clog pores. Not only is it an excellent moisturizer for acne-prone skin, but it can also be used to treat acne. It is a dry oil and its anti-inflammatory properties reduce redness and irritation, and promote healing. And its anti-oxidant properties help with protecting skin from free radical damage.
Jojoba oil is a botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree. Technically it is not actually an oil, but what is called a wax ester. Out of all of the compounds in nature, this wax ester is the most similar to human skin oil (sebum). It is theorized that applying jojoba to the skin can “trick” the skin into thinking it is producing enough oil, thus balancing oil production.
Tamanu oil is one of the most effective agents in promoting the formation of new tissue, thereby accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin. This process is known as cicatrization in medical terms. Essentially, it means that tamanu oil is a powerful skin regenerator. Traditionally tamanu oil has been used to combat a whole range of skin problems and is highly beneficial as an antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
Vitamin E oil is a powerful antioxidant. It is nourishing for all skin types and plumps and firms the skin. It also prolongs the shelf life of the product.
Lavender essential oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and sedative properties that help to relieve pain.
Tea tree (Melaleuca) essential oil has antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antiviral and pain-relieving properties.
