First, it’s important to note that our products are natural and chemical free, which indicates that the ingredients have a lot benefits not only for your skin, but also your overall health. These ingredients are known to help soothe and refresh your skin, keeping you as clean as possible, which is why we choose to incorporate them into our products. There are five main ingredients that we use in our wipes: aloe, citric acid, chamomile, lemongrass and tea tree oil. Without further ado, here are the main benefits that come from using each of these ingredients on your skin.
Aloe is one of the plants that has the most benefits for the human body, because of all of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fatty acids, among other things it contains. There have been over 75 active components identified in Aloe, which make it amazing to include in any sort of product to be consumed or used on the skin. One of the properties which makes Aloe so popular, is its ability to help soothe and heal minor wounds and burns. It prevents inflammation, and acts as a moisturizer, while also being antibacterial and antiviral, which helps prevent any type of infection. In addition, Aloe acts as a cleanser and is very soothing to the skin. It is often used to treat sun burns, but can also have several more purposes, as it’s very good for your overall health.
Although you might not expect citric acid to be an amazing ingredient in skin care products, it actually plays a very part in them, because of its many properties, among which allow it to balance PH levels. Citric acid helps reduce inflammation, and heal the skin, while also acting as an exfoliator, meaning that it removes dead skin cells, which in turn improve the overall texture of the skin. In addition, it contains vitamin c, which in turn, produces collagen. As you probably already know, Collagen is very good for the skin, because it keeps the skin strong and firm, by helping cells and blood vessels grow. Vitamin C also helps the skin repair itself and acts as an antioxidant, protecting the skin from free radicals.
Chamomile has been used for centuries, because it has a lot of benefits for the body, whether it’s consumed or used externally. This flower’s predominant benefit is its ability to heal and soothe irritated skin. Chamomile is known to reduce inflammation and swelling, while also moisturizing the skin; therefore, promoting the healing process of any sort of wound or irritation. Because of this, it has often been used in baby products, because it won’t cause any irritation, even on very sensitive skin. In addition to this, Chamomile is antibacterial and antiseptic, which allows it to help treat infections and at the same time, cleanse the skin, without causing any sort of irritation.
Lemongrass, generally found as an oil, has a variety of vitamins and minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, zinc, vitamin C and vitamin A, which allow it to have a lot of benefits in the body. Iron, for example, is very helpful in the skin, leading lemongrass to have a good use in skincare products. First, it acts as a cleanser, because it is antiseptic, but it also is antimicrobial, which helps fight and prevent infection. What’s interesting is that it can treat both internal and external infections, depending on how it’s used. The fact that it is also anti-inflammatory allows it to be soothing on the skin. This particular oil is also an antioxidant, meaning that it helps prevent the growth of bacteria and yeast, and also can be good to cure acne, which makes it a very good choice to use in any product that is for the skin.
TEA TREE OIL
This oil has been used for a very long time, thanks to its many healing and antiseptic properties. Tea tree oil is known to kill certain types of bacteria, viruses and fungi, which is why it’s often been used to treat all types of infections. At the same time, it doesn’t irritate the skin, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, and its ability to soothe irritated skin. For this reason, it’s been used to treat eczema too. Another thing that adds to this oil’s ability to heal infections is that it leads to an increase in the activity of white blood cells, which helps heal and fight off anything that could be harmful to your body. All these properties combined, have caused this oil to be included in a lot of modern beauty and skin care products, as it helps fight any infection, while also healing the skin. It’s especially been used to treat acne, but can be beneficial for a variety of products in this industry.
