Our simple, natural ingredients explained:
Cocoa Butter Research shows that cocoa butter, a pure natural fat extracted from cocoa beans, has a lot of potential benefits for skin nutritionally. It’s used to smooth scars, wrinkles and other marks on the skin. Women use cocoa butter during and after pregnancy to prevent and minimize the appearance of stretch marks. Research suggests that cocoa butter has the potential to prevent and treat skin diseases and rashes from conditions like eczema and dermatitis as well as protect the skin from damage that leads to premature aging. Here are six reasons it plays a starring role in our lotion stones:
1. Rich in Fatty Acids: Cocoa butter is high in saturated fats, primarily stearic and oleic acids. These fatty acids make cocoa butter a thick, rich substance that provides deep hydration to the skin.
2. Emollient Properties: Cocoa butter acts as an emollient, forming a protective barrier on the skin's surface. This barrier helps to lock in moisture, preventing water loss and keeping the skin soft and supple.
3. Vitamins and Antioxidants: Cocoa butter contains vitamins E and K, as well as antioxidants. These compounds help protect the skin from oxidative stress, promoting overall skin health and potentially reducing the signs of aging.
4. Collagen Production: Some studies suggest that cocoa butter may stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is crucial for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness, contributing to a youthful appearance.
5. Scar Reduction: Cocoa butter is often used to diminish the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Its moisturizing properties, combined with its potential to support collagen formation, can help improve skin texture and reduce the visibility of scars.
6. Aromatherapy Benefits: The natural aroma of cocoa butter can provide a pleasant and comforting experience. This sensory aspect can contribute to a positive overall skincare routine and is one reason I opted to stick with organic, unrefined cocoa butter. Unrefined cocoa butter is the best for skincare benefits, as some processing methods may strip away some of its natural compounds.
Babassu oil derived from the seeds of the babassu palm tree native to Brazil, is used as an emollient in skincare. It can be used on the face, body, and even as a natural remedy for dry scalp or hair. It contributes to softer, smoother skin. Skin naturally contains lauric acid, which also occurs in over 50% of the fatty acids in babassu oil. This helps give the skin plumpness and plenty of moisture. Plus, lauric acid helps reduce skin irritation! Here are six of the reasons we chose to include it as one of the few ingredients in our stones:
1. Light Texture: Babassu oil has a light and non-greasy texture, making it easily absorbed by the skin. This allows for quick moisturization without leaving a heavy or sticky residue.
2. Emollient Properties: Babassu oil acts as an emollient, helping to soften and smooth the skin. It forms a protective layer on the skin's surface, preventing moisture loss and promoting hydration.
3. Rich in Fatty Acids: Babassu oil is rich in lauric and myristic acids, which are saturated fatty acids. These fatty acids contribute to the oil's moisturizing properties and help to improve the skin's overall texture.
4. Antioxidant Content: Babassu oil contains antioxidants such as vitamin E, which can help protect the skin from oxidative stress and free radical damage. This contributes to maintaining the skin's health and preventing premature aging.
5. Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Some users report that babassu oil has anti-inflammatory effects, which can be beneficial for soothing irritated or inflamed skin conditions.
6. Suitable for All Skin Types: Babassu oil is generally well-tolerated by various skin types, including sensitive and oily skin. It is non-comedogenic, meaning it is less likely to clog pores, making it suitable for individuals prone to acne.
Macadamia nut oil resembles the oil that skin naturally produces. It can be used on the face, body, and even as a natural remedy for dry or damaged hair. Here's six ways macadamia nut oil helps contribute to moisturizing human skin:
1. Rich in Fatty Acids: Macadamia nut oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, particularly oleic acid. These fatty acids are similar to the skin's natural oils, making macadamia nut oil a good moisturizer that is easily absorbed by the skin.
2. Palmitoleic Acid Content: Macadamia nut oil is one of the few plant oils that contain palmitoleic acid, a fatty acid that is naturally present in the skin's sebum. This makes it particularly nourishing and helps to maintain the skin's moisture barrier.
3. Antioxidant Properties: Macadamia nut oil contains antioxidants, such as tocopherols (vitamin E) and squalene, which help protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. This can contribute to the prevention of premature aging and skin damage.
4. Non-Comedogenic: Like many plant oils, macadamia nut oil is non-comedogenic, meaning it is unlikely to clog pores. This makes it suitable for various skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin.
5. Emollient Properties: Macadamia nut oil acts as an emollient, softening and smoothing the skin. It helps to lock in moisture, preventing water loss and keeping the skin hydrated.
6. Reduces Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL): Macadamia nut oil has been shown to reduce transepidermal water loss, which means it helps to maintain the skin's natural moisture by preventing water from evaporating through the skin. This is also a property that beeswax provides, but we don’t like the drag that comes with it.
MCT - Medium-Chain Triglycerides oil is a type of fatty acid derived from coconut oil or palm kernel oil. While it is more commonly known for its use in dietary supplements and as a cooking oil, MCT oil also has potential benefits for the skin. Here's six way MCT oil contributes to the skin moisturization properties of our Stones:
1. Light and Non-Greasy: MCT oil is known for its light and non-greasy texture. This makes it easy to apply to the skin without leaving a heavy or sticky residue, providing quick absorption.
2. Antimicrobial Properties: MCT oil exhibits antimicrobial properties, primarily due to its content of caprylic and capric acids. These properties can be beneficial for the skin by helping to prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms on the skin's surface.
3. Moisturizing Effect: MCT oil acts as an emollient, helping to soften and smooth the skin. It forms a protective barrier on the skin's surface, reducing water loss and helping to retain moisture.
4. Suitable for Sensitive Skin: MCT oil is generally well-tolerated by various skin types, including sensitive skin. Its hypoallergenic nature makes it less likely to cause skin irritation or allergic reactions.
5. Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Some research suggests that MCT oil may have anti-inflammatory effects, which can be beneficial for individuals with skin conditions characterized by inflammation.
6. Collagen Support: MCT oil may contribute to collagen production, similar to rice bran oil. Collagen is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and preventing the formation of wrinkles.
Rice Bran Massage Oil Rice bran oil is praised for its potential benefits in skincare, including its moisturizing properties. Here are six reasons why I chose rice bran oil for the stones:
1. Rich in Fatty Acids: Rice bran oil contains a high concentration of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids. These fatty acids play a crucial role in maintaining the skin's natural barrier function, preventing moisture loss, and promoting hydration.
2. Vitamins and Antioxidants: Rice bran oil is a good source of vitamins such as tocopherols (vitamin E) and other antioxidants. Vitamin E is known for its skin-nourishing properties and its ability to protect the skin from oxidative stress, which can contribute to premature aging.
3. Non-Comedogenic: Rice bran oil is non-comedogenic, meaning it is less likely to clog pores. This makes it suitable for various skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin, as it provides moisture without causing breakouts.
4. Light Texture: Compared to some heavier oils, rice bran oil has a relatively light texture, making it easily absorbed by the skin. This helps to moisturize without leaving a greasy or heavy feeling.
5. Anti-Inflammatory Properties: The presence of compounds with anti-inflammatory properties in rice bran oil may help soothe irritated skin and reduce redness, making it suitable for individuals with sensitive or inflamed skin conditions.
6. Collagen Support: Some studies suggest that rice bran oil may promote collagen formation in the skin. Collagen is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and preventing signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines.
