Cocos nucifera oil
Derived from coconut oil’s fatty acids, cocos nucifera has anti-bacterial activity and has anti-inflammatory benefits, which can also be beneficial for irritations. In addition, cocos nucifera helps against dry skin.
Due to its high concentration of vitamin E, jojoba oil is a real powerhouse for skin care. Due to its anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic activity, it can help limit free radical damage and reduce irritation and redness. Jojoba oil has a chemical similarity to human sebum (oil produced by the skin). It also provides a non-greasy film on the surface of the skin, which retains moisture and balances the overproduction of sebum.
