The information in this post is based on individual studies and anecdotal information.
Solid Coconut Oil
It is already known that Coconut Oil has TONS of wonderful benefits. For this recipe, coconut oil makes a great moisturizer that will leave your skin healthy and nourished. Moreover, it has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat acne and other face or skin ailments.
For skin that needs soothing and hydration, Almond Oil is the key! It is rich in vitamins A, B, and E that help promote healthy skin. Known to treat dry skin, reduce irritation, stretch marks and scars, and improve skin rejuvenation, Almond Oil is definitely a perfect addition to this recipe.
Zinc Oxide for skin? Is it safe? Zinc Oxide forms a soothing protective physical barrier on the skin that blocks harmful UV rays that can ultimately cause skin damage and quicken aging (here’s the recipe for an All-Natural Sunscreen). Zinc oxide provides protection from the sun and from irritation and various other skin conditions. With this ingredient, your cream will surely make your skin even-toned and healthy!
Camphor Essential Oil
Camphor Essential Oil has a pervasive penetrating, medicinal scent that will naturally boost and uplift your mood. With the added essential oil, this cream will not only benefit your skin but your emotional wellness as well. Also, as mentioned above, Camphor Oil helps reduce bodily aches and pains. And together with Zinc Oxide, it strengthens this recipe’s ability to soothe irritation and other skin conditions.
