Remember when you were a kid and you played the “What’s the one thing you’d take on a desert island?” game with your friends? Depending on how old you are right now you may have said either Tamagotchi, Gameboy, iPhone (for all you Gen Z’ers), or if you were the responsible one in the group you probably said “matches, duh.”
Let’s imagine for a moment you had to choose just one skincare product to take with you. Would it be sunblock? Maybe a face cleanser? Or perhaps a deodorant? All great choices, but if you ask us, we’d go for a product that had more than one use! A multi-purpose nourishing balm that is! Like our new BOTANICAL Care Multi-Purpose Skin Healing Balm!
Easy answer! Since it is multi-purpose, this gorgeous balm can be used for nourishing and protecting your skin. Chapped lips? Check. Dry hands? Check. Shaving bumps? Check. Tattoo care? Check! You get the point!
So let’s learn a bit more about this all over face and body care product and the ingredients that will definitely make it one you’ll be rushing to add to your skincare arsenal ASAP!
Why are botanical ingredients so important in your skincare routine?
So many beautiful, useful, and healing plants exist on our planet; all of which come with their own set of superpowers! Here at Rustic MAKA we use only the highest quality herbs, plant butters and other body-loving ingredients that help your skin thrive and yield positive results! Let’s learn a little more about why these plant-based ingredients can often be superior to conventional (lab created) ingredients.
- Plant-based skincare products are full of antioxidant-rich ingredients and vitamins that work to strengthen, repair, and support your skin through their free radical combatting properties.
- Plant butters are full of essential fatty acids that work to smooth and hydrate the skin while reducing inflammation and irritation. Essential fatty acids are your secret weapon to dewy, glowing skin.
What ingredients are in the BOTANICAL CARE Multi-Purpose Skin Healing Balm?
Apricot Kernel Oil
Extracted from the kernels (seeds) of apricots, apricot kernel oil is something every skincare lover needs in their beauty ritual. Like jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil closely resembles the skin’s own, natural sebum meaning your pores readily drink it up where it provides beautiful, deep-down hydration thanks to the high concentration of oleic and linoleic fatty acids.
With regular use you will notice an improvement in the health of your skin as this oil aids in tissue repair, fights inflammation and moisturizes like nobody’s business!
Organic Primrose Oil
Primrose oil is a must for all skin types, particularly sensitive skin thanks to its healing concentrations of fatty acids, including Omega 6. Studies show that topical application of omega 6 is associated with less skin dryness because it improves the skin’s barrier function and prevents trans-epidermal water loss through the pores.
It is excellent for soothing troubled skin as it reduces inflammation without ever over drying the skin as some conventional ingredients may.
This beautifully rich butter, obtained from the fruit of the Sal tree in India, will help to instantly relieve parched skin while reducing inflammation and improving the skin’s elasticity.
Organic Calendula Flowers (Origin: Michigan and Egypt)
The beautiful vibrant red-gold of Calendula flowers can be attributed to a powerful class of antioxidants called carotenoids. Carotenoids protect against environmental aggressors, like sun, wind and air pollution, all of which may increase the signs of aging. Calendula will help to keep the skin youthful thanks to these potent antioxidants, which may also help to promote collagen production for firmer, plumper skin.
It doesn’t end there! Calendula is known for its anti-inflammatory effects that will calm and soothe while promoting a beautiful glow.
Organic Chamomile Flowers (Origin: Egypt)
We have come to know of chamomile as the tea to turn to in times of trouble thanks to its calming and relaxing effects, but did you know that it is just as calming for your skin?
There are three natural compounds in chamomile, namely bisabolol, chamazulene and apigenin which is a flavonoid. These compounds give chamomile its reputation as a wonderful soothing healer of skin conditions.
Plantain Leaf (Origin: Bulgaria)
Plantain helps to soothe insect bites and rashes thanks to potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It will take the itch and sting right out of a rash while aiding the healing process. Sensitive skin adores this ingredient.
Organic Lavender Flowers (Origin: Michigan and France)
Another must in our balm as it helps to soothe and calm the skin.
Organic Lemon Balm Leaf (Origin: Bulgaria)
Lemon balm tea, along with lavender and chamomile, are our three top choices for anxiety and emotional distress, not to mention insomnia. However, these same properties can be carried over to the skin when lemon balm leaf is applied externally thanks to anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Organic Sage Leaf (Origin: Egypt)
Sage is wonderful for healing and repairing chapped skin, as well as for Athlete’s foot and acne.
We hope you are as excited to try this beautiful balm as we are to tell you about it!
