Often times we forget that the foods we put into our body are also good for our skin. There are numerous superfood ingredients you can eat, as well as apply to the skin to reap their benefits. Below are just a few!

Colloidal Oatmeal

Colloidal Oatmeal is simply the fine grinding of oatmeal into a powder. It's considered to be an emollient, a substance that softens the skin. Colloidal oatmeal has been used as a salve for itchy, dry or irritated skin. Oatmeal is packed with fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals which are both beneficial to your skin, and your diet!

Colloidal Oatmeal is found in our: Restorative Hand and Body Lotion

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil has numerous health benefits mostly due to its high content of antioxidants and healthy fats. Whether consumed or applied topically, it works to improve skin and wound healing with vitamin E and A. Avocado oil can be consumed cold, and is stable at high heat making it a versatile oil for the skin and cooking.
