Cocoa has been used in medicine for almost 3,000 years. Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which help to nourish, hydrate and improve elasticity of the skin. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture. Cocoa butter is also rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals, which work to improve blood flow to the skin and protect against damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Cocoa butter can aid in smoothing scars and reducing skin blemishes.
The jojoba plant (Simmondsia chinensis), is a shrub that grows in the deserts of Arizona, California, Mexico, and, more recently, in Australia. For centuries, indigenous Americans have been using the oil from jojoba seeds as a remedy for skin wounds and sores. Once the oil is extracted from the plant’s seeds, the remarkable plant keeps growing and lives for more than one hundred years, continuing to produce its oil as it grows older. The plant grows quite easily with minimal effort, thrives in extremely harsh growing conditions, and is thought to be the most eco-friendly ingredient that is currently used in cosmetic products. Whereas most plants produce glyceride oils (where fatty acids are connected to a glycerol molecule), jojoba oil doesn’t contain any glycerides or glycerol, making its molecular structure more similar to human sebum than conventional vegetable oils. Rich in Vitamin E.
Peppermint is an antispasmodic and a strong analgesic, bringing relief to injuries, tendinitis, sciatica, rheumatism, headache, and neuralgia, while its anti-bacterial properties soothe itchy or irritated skin.

Vitamin E is a group of eight composites, four tocopherols and four tocotrienols, that provide distinctive benefits for the health of your body and skin. This powerful combination of antioxidant abilities has the capability to decrease the damage caused by free radicals and fight inflammation, and, as a result, assist in the protection and preservation of aging skin cells.
