As we get older our skin does not produce enough oil and becomes very dry, add in menopause and all of a sudden the wrinkles, lines and visible signs are aging are prevalent. The Skin needs to be hydrated either internally or topically to be soft, supple and smooth.
Moisturizers have been found to help restore the skin barrier providing a protective layer on surface of the skin to trap water and prevent the penetration of irritants and allergens. An emollient cream is superior in trapping the moisture within the skin. There are five randomized controlled trials showing benefit to emollient use in atopic eczema.

Science Behind the Formula:
Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) in West Africa. High levels of natural anti-oxidants (A and E) and essential fatty acids (from stearic acid and oleic acid) found within the nut's buttery contents have proven extremely effective for moisturizing and repairing damaged skin. Vitamin A maintains the firmness and elasticity of the skin while Vitamin E is mainly moisturizing. In addition, Shea butter contains cinnamic acid that provides sun protection and heals skin inflammation.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin.
Apricot Oil is rich in is rich in omega – 9 ( oleic acid ) fatty acid, omega – 6 ( linoleic acid ), and Vitamin E which is why the oil is a powerful emollient and is useful to firm, tone your skin, and slow down the aging process. The oil’s fine texture allows more rapid skin penetration, which promotes more prompt healing and nourishment of sore or chapped skin without residue. Shirley Price, coauthor of “Aromatherapy for Health Professionals,” notes that apricot oil is also beneficial in relieving the itch and irritation of eczema-ridden skin as well as helps prevent and minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
