vegan unscented lotion with avocado oil + apricot kernel oil
Designed with facial care for sensitive skin in mind, this product has become popular as an after sun lotion, or more “high end” hand and body lotion. This lotion is also helpful for treating mild cases of eczema.
Avocado oil is rich in vitamins A, D and E, as well as potassium, proteins, beta-carotene and numerous essential unsaturated fatty acids. It also contains a high quantity of sterolins, which is reported to help reduce age spots, help heal sun damage and scars. Avocado oil is furthermore said to increase the amount of collagen in the skin, which facilitates regeneration, particularly in the case of skin that is dehydrated or otherwise affected by difficult climates (i.e. Winnipeg’s dry winters). Some claim that avocado oil can even help to relieve the dryness and itching of psoriasis and eczema.
Apricot kernel oil has a high content of vitamins A, C, and E, as well as fatty acids such as oleic and linoleic acid. It is considered gentle enough to be used in products for babies, and is thus also suitable for mature and sensitive skin. It is well absorbed without leaving a greasy feeling, and can be helpful in calming the discomfort associated with conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
Aloe vera gel is a powerful moisturizer that simultaneously helps to remove dead skin. It also stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin and is known to have a healing effect on burns and other wounds, all of which translates into assisting regeneration.
This product is handcrafted without the use of artificial preservatives. Please store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight for maximum longevity.
*** As noted above, this item involves the same formula used in the facial moisturizer for normal/sensitive skin, tattoo after care, hair smoothing lotion and as a general hand/body lotion that may benefit those with mild cases of eczema. These items are bottled with different names to better serve those looking for particular items. Customer feedback has also indicated that it helps to avoid confusion with the other facial moisturizers, which include a range of additional ingredients. ***
