Science Behind the Ingredients:
Bentonite Clay Powder Pharmaceutical Grade
It nourishes skin by balancing oil production, removing dead skin cells, clearing clogged pores, and fighting bacteria.It's known for its healing properties and used to treat a variety of skin ailments including acne, blemishes, cuts, and burns.
The theory is that bentonite clay adsorbs materials by sticking to their molecules or ions. As the clay leaves the body, it takes the toxin or other molecules with it.
Scientists believe that bentonite clay works by adsorbing oils and dirt from the skin. It’s adsorbent power can help remove sebum, or oil and bacteria from the skin’s surface which can help remove impurities from the skin to help reduce acne or the risk of pimples and skin infections.
Bentonite clay forms from volcanic ash. It gets its name from Fort Benton in Wyoming, where it occurs in large amounts.
Himalayan Sea Salt:
Himalayan salt, also known as Himalayan crystal salt, is a type of rock salt best known for its striking pink color which comes from the natural presence of several trace minerals, including magnesium and iodine. Himalayan salt is unrefined and hand-mined from caves in northern Pakistan. It is rich in magnesium and calcium, which improves hydration by strengthening the barrier function of the skin
It is great for use on the face since:
- it promotes pH Balance
- helps to reduce the appearance of fines lines with its ability to help the skin retain water. The minerals in the salt are hydroscopic, meaning they attract water, so when you put them on the skin, they actually draw moisture and nutrients from the deeper levels of the skin up to the epidermis.
- Is a natural antiseptic
Peppermint Oil:• Antiseptic -an antimicrobial substance that reduce the possibility of infection
• Astringent- to minimize pore size and clean out the dirt
Tea Tree Oil:
Antiseptic/Antimicrobial - Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions has been thought to destroy Propionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria that is involved in the development of acne.Vitamin D3: Wound healing
Vitamin D is indispensable to the health, beauty, and longevity of the largest organ in the body - your skin. If adequate amounts of vitamin D are not available, your epidermal cells won’t form a watertight barrier that locks in moisture and keeps your skin soft and supple. As a result, the outer layer of your skin may become thinner and more fragile. It begins to sag from lack of adequate support. Dryness and wrinkles set in as moisture is gradually lost to the outside.Vitamin D3 regulates the expression of cathelicidin (LL-37/hCAP18) , , an antimicrobial protein that appears to mediate innate immunity in skin by promoting wound healing and tissue repair.
