Beef tallow is full of Vitamins A, D, E, and K which harmoniously work together to tone our skin, protect against harmful UV rays, and prevent dark spots and wrinkles, so it’s no wonder beef tallow is a time proven ingredient for youthful radiant skin.
In its raw form shea butter is loaded with fatty acids and vitamins which are essential for maintaining skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles, fighting inflammation, boosting collagen production, and promoting skin barrier health for brighter, clearer, more hydrated skin!
Wild frankincense essential oil not only has a delightful spicy scent but it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties are a pleasing experience! Who doesn’t want help reducing their pore size, evening out their skin tone, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and even lightening dark spots and lessening the appearance of scars. This wonder of an oil is fit for a King and the perfect ingredient for such a luxurious moisturizer.
Yet another essential nutrient for skin health since skin care isn’t as simple as applying just one ingredient. Jojoba oil, like the rest of Pura Bonta’s ingredients, moisturizes the skin without clogging pores, and it absorbs easily and helps regulate our own skins oil production. The prevention of breakouts with its anti-microbial properties is something we all can appreciate whether prone to acne or not. Though I can’t list all of Jojoba’s benefits let’s not overlook its strong antioxidants which regenerate skin cells that fights the good fight against aging.
Emu oil has the gift of going deep as it is able to penetrate the many layers of our skin while bringing all the goodness packed in Pura Bonta along with it. This is highly beneficial to not only impact the superficial layers but to strengthen and thicken deep into the skin. I even read that it increased the thickness of the skin 2.5 times. Now that’s remarkable!
Have you ever heard of a super anti-oxidant? Well you have now and it’s called Virgin Red Palm Oil! The reason why anti-oxidants are invaluable for healthy skin is because they have the power to render free radicals (an atom or molecule that causes damage to your cells) ineffective.
Essential oils are all the rage right now but they’re not just a fad to be short-lived. In fact it’s quite the opposite as they’ve been around for thousands of years and the love of them has not diminished with time. These oils are highly beneficial to our health whether we apply them topically, inhale them deeply or both! I chose Ylang Ylang, which means “flower of flowers”, mainly for its scent but it also has some pretty wonderful qualities for our skin AND emotions. First of all it lifts your mood and encourages calmness at the same time. It also assists in balancing hormones (can I get a hallelujah!). And for the skin it helps to control oil production so our pores are not blocked by sebum resulting in acne so the result is clearer skin and proper moisture balance. Ylang Ylang, a truly marvelous oil in every sense of the word.
Hurray for this ingredient that can hold an incredible amount of moisture and even adjust the skin’s hydration level based on the humidity of the climate! This botanical form of hyaluronic acid is a strong assistant in repairing the damage dryness has done to our skin.
