Geranium oil is an astringent, and can tighten facial skin as well as tightening and contracting muscles.  Helping both muscles and skin elastic, it can help give you a more toned abdominal section. The powerful cicatrisant properties increase blood circulation right below the surface of the skin which further helps healing.  The antibacterial properties found in geranium oil can block bacteria from growing on the skin and can help fade the look of scars and other spots on the skin. Geranium oil also promotes cell growth by helping to recycle dead cells and support new cell regeneration.  In addition to being an anti-inflammatory agent, developing research suggests geranium oil has the power to help reduce nerve pain when applied topically, which can reduce pain from shingles as well as joint pain.  Its aromatherapy powers can improve mental functioning and uplift your spirits.  However, do you know who doesn’t like the smell of geranium oil… Bugs and insects!  Geranium oil is also a natural bug repellent and bug bite healer.

GLYCERIN

 

Glycerin can be applied directly to the skin and acts as a very effective moisturizer on the skin. It helps hydrate your skin by absorbing water from air reducing the dry and dull patches on your skin, as well as filling the cracks in dryer skin. It’s therefore very useful in winters as well. It adds hydration and health to your skin, while creating a layer that is critically needed to work as a natural barrier to protect your skin from pollutants and skin disease causing bacteria.

GOAT MILK POWDER

 

Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. This leaves new cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking. The alpha-hydroxy acids are so effective because they break down the bonds that hold the dead skin cells together. Removing dead skin cells will help many skin conditions by removing irritation. Water-based soaps may use harsh chemical acids to accomplish this, frequently with skin-damaging results. Particularly high in Vitamin A, goat milk is effective in repairing damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. It also contains important minerals for the skin such as selenium. Selenium can also help prevent damage to the skin from excessive time in the sun and is also believed by scientists to have an important role in preventing skin cancer.
