PEA is a naturally occuring amide which works on the endo-cannabinoid system in our bodies. It has been shown to decrease inflammation and in particular, reduce the release of histamine by mast cells. Mast cells are part of our immune response, and when the body has an injury or is exposed to an allergen, it releases inflammatory mediators such as cytokines and histamine which causes blood vessels to swell and more blood flows to that area. By decreasing the amount of histamine that is released by mast cells, it can calm skin redness and inflammation.
We blend other oils such as Hemp Seed Oil and Sea Buckthorn Oil which have natural fatty acids such as Omega 3, 6 and 9 that help reduce inflammation, with hydrating and nourishing oils such as Avocado Oil, a rich source of vitamins such as Vitamin C, K, B5 and B6, folate, copper, zinc, potassium, and iron. Manuka Oil is also added in as our hero ingredient as it helps to decrease inflammation, helps heal sores and skin minor injuries, and has anti-oxidants which help to reduce free-radical damage.
Shea butter and Mango seed butter are added to give your skin that extra bit of lush hydration, nourishing your skin and leaving it feeling soft and pampered.
