Benefits of Shea Butter
Shea butter is a fatty oil extracted from the nuts of the African shea tree. One of the many unique traits of shea butter is that it won’t clog pores like most oils do, making it a great option for a face moisturizer. The palmitic, stearic, linoleic, and oleic acid present in shea butter restore lipids in the skin, creating and sustaining moisture all day long.
It’s antioxidants protect the skin, and it’s antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties make it a fantastic healing and restorative agent. It can be used to diminish traces of stretch marks and wrinkles and it can help soothe dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.

Kaolin Clay Benefits
We’re all going crazy for our clays because they are just so beneficial for our skin health. Kaolin clay is safe and gentle for practically all skin types, even sensitive skin types. It naturally exfoliates the skin while it works at attracting and drawing out any impurities from the pores. It also works at absorbing any excess oil from the skin, making it a great option for those with oily skin types, or as your number one summer skincare ingredient.
Candelilla Wax, Cornstarch and Baking Soda
Candelilla wax is similar to beeswax except it's an environmentally friendly vegan alternative. It acts as a binder to keep all your favorite ingredients together and has an impressively high melting point, helping the ingredients sync up and spread more evenly.
Cornstarch and baking soda are two gentle exfoliants that help remove dirt, bacteria and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Cornstarch can be used as an anti-chafing powder, to naturally thicken mascara, or to soothe a sunburn. Not to mention all the ways it can be used to remove stains and clean the house!
Baking soda can be used to make a natural toothpaste, added to your body wash as a natural exfoliant, as a face scrub, in your clarifying shampoo and as a dry shampoo.
Zinc Oxide Skin Benefits
Zinc oxide is probably most famous for its ability to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. It works as an astringent, absorbing excess oil and helps the skin maintain a healthy oil production. It can be used to treat acne, and can help reduce the chances of bacterial infections on the skin.

Benefits of Vitamin E oil
Vitamin E oil can help restore your body's natural moisture levels. If you’re experiencing dry skin and hair, it’s recommended to add a few drops of vitamin E oil to your favorite moisturizer or conditioner (if it isn’t in there already!) Believe it or not, it can also be used to cleanse the skin without disrupting the skin’s natural sebum production. It helps fight off the damage of free radicals, making the skin appear more youthful and even in tone. It can be used to soothe sunburns, chapped lips, and many believe it can aid in hair growth!

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
The antiseptic and antibacterial properties in ACV deeply penetrate into the pores removing any dirt, excess oil or environmental toxins. It’s a natural skin toner that may be able to shrink those pores. It can help treat scalp infections, remove foot and body odor, and treat bug bites and razor burn. It contains probiotics, beneficial enzymes, acetic acid, malic acid, and vitamins C and B which help strengthen and purify the skin.
