what it does:

why it works:
- castor seed oil is a skin conditioning agent which also helps to stabilize the texture and consistency of cosmetic products.
- beeswax forms a protective barrier when applied to the skin to hold in moisture to reduce dryness. as a humectant, beeswax also attracts water molecules to increase hydration. it is additionally a good source of vitamin A.
- camellia oil is an outstanding emollient which keeps skin soft and supple. it is rapidly absorbed into the skin and is non-comedogenic. it also helps to repair damage secondary to aging and dehydration.
- sunflower seed oil is high in vitamins A, E, and D. it's readily absorbed into the skin and is often used a carrier oil for essential oils.
- tocopherol (vitamin E) is an antioxidant which can help to prevent free radical damage to the skin, an anti-inflammatory, and moisturizer.
- peppermint contains vitamin A and is soothing to the skin.
