MAGNESIUM

 

Every cell in our body needs magnesium in some way, and it is vital for bone, tooth, muscle and joint health as well as for optimal sleep and stress control.  Magnesium oil can help relieve psoriasis, eczema, acne, burns and wounds.  It is also capable of maintaining youthful skin, relaxing your body and aiding general healing.  When applied topically, magnesium enhances skin barrier function, decreases inflammation, speeds wound healing, and promotes skin cell hydration health and vitality.

MALLOW ROOT

 

“Marshmallow” is a plant that has been in use since ancient Egyptian times.  It has healing, moisturizing and soothing properties that make it highly effective for revitalizing both skin and hair.  There are significant differences between extract from the plant and its root.  FRSC products use the root in our healing line, which is significantly different than the plant’s.  The root is high in mucilages, which are used to coat and prevent irritation, as well as bind to the proteins to make strands look thicker.  Marshmallow root, specifically, also has low concentrations of ceramide precursors, a natural hydrator and helps with repairing the skin barrier. For hair, mucilage binds to the proteins to make strands look thicker.
 

MEADOWFOAM SEED OIL

 

Meadowfoam seed oil is moisturizing and antioxidant rich.  Like jojoba oil, meadowfoam seed oil is slightly waxy and closely resembles human sebum. When used in skin care, it naturally helps your skin to effectively form a barrier to lock in moisture and deliver nutrients deep into your epidermis.

MENTHOL EO

 

Because of its powerful cooling effect, menthol essential oil is often applied topically to reduce the perception of heat to the skin as it helps to ease the burning feeling caused by muscle exertion and strain or sunburns.  Although it does not actually change the temperature of the skin, it provides a cooling effect which may act as a numbing agent.
