Skin Care Products So Pure You can Eat Them


We are avid ingredient readers, and we hope you are too. We know that anything you put on your skin can be absorbed into your tissues and even into your blood stream.

A 2010 study by a Swiss research team confirmed this with some scary findings. The team tested the breast milk of nursing mothers and found that 85% of the samples contained dangerous chemicals commonly found in commercial cosmetics and sunscreens.

Since none of these women were eating their makeup or sunblock there is only one way the compounds got into their bodies: through their skin.What does this mean for the health of these mothers or, even more importantly, the babies drinking their milk? At this point, no one really knows. What is known is that many of these same chemicals are known to be carcinogenic (cancer causing), and can also disrupt our endocrine system by interfering with hormone activity.

Shea Butter is the oil extracted from the African karite tree, which grows wild on the savannahs of West and Central Africa. Shea butter is abundant in natural tocopherols (vitamin E), cinnamic esters, unsaponifiable fats and offers unparalleled moisturizing properties. Shea butter also serves as natural UV protection, helping to prevent premature aging.

Shea Butter has a long history of successful application in alleviating and dramatically improving numerous conditions of the skin, including itching, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, soreness, wounds, burns, scarring and stretch marks. Sunfood Shea butter is raw, cold-processed, unfiltered and unrefined so it retains all of its inherent beneficial properties.

Cacao butter is the pure oil of the cacao bean. When applied to the skin, cacao butter is a powerful natural moisturizer and can help repair chapped skin and lips and to prevent dry, itchy skin. The antioxidants in cacao butter help protect the skin from free-radicals that can damage skin at the cellular level.

Cacao butter can penetrate deep into the skin, through the top layer (epidermis) to the middle layer (dermis) where it can help to reduce scar tissue. Cacao butter also has the incredibly delicious smell of chocolate and makes an epic massage oil.

Coconut oil has many health giving properties as both a food and a skin treatment. It is abundant in medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) which help the skin retain moisture and make it smooth to the touch. The saturated fats in coconut oil, such as capric acid and lauric acid, are naturally disinfecting and anti-microbial which can help to protect the skin and fight off infections.

Coconut oil also contains vitamin E, which promotes the growth and repair of skin, and helps to prevent aging and wrinkling.Pure coconut oil can help to protect and beautify from the inside out, and the outside in.
