The best natural ingredients for flawless skin
Without a doubt the most famous natural skincare product of all, and the most versatile. Coconut oil is known for its emollient, healing, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which help improve the healthy glow of natural skin.
Coconut oil is high in Vitamin E so when it sinks into the skin's pores it is an amazing moisturising experience. Coconut oil has even been found to be effective at fighting off skin diseases like dermatitis. This degree of potency and utility makes it the best natural ingredient for the skin in our book, not to mention the fabulous smell!

Used as one of the essential ingredients for flawless skin, rose water helps fight against acne and can cool and soothe irritated skin. It works as both a cleanser for oiling skin and provides moisture for dry skin. It has antioxidant properties that can regenerate skin tissue and fight the signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
Aloe vera is commonly used in cosmetic products due to its soothing, rejuvenating, and healing properties. If you want to get beautiful skin, aloe vera is one of the best natural home remedies especially, when treating oily skin. The plant is high in amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals that can help to improve skin complexion, fight off infections and give a healthy glow to your face.
Shea butter is full of vitamins and essential fatty acids, making it ideal for UV protection and collagen production. It contains loads of Vitamin A and Vitamin E—vitamins that promote healthy skin and vision and protect cells from free radicals. Shea butter can be used to treat a number of skin conditions such as dry skin, skin rash, blemishes and wrinkles, Eczema, and cold weather damage. Shea butter is particularly good in the fight to reduce the appearance and redness of acne scars, fading their impact over time.

Candelilla wax, because of its mositurising properties, can provide relief to dry and aging skin, diminishing the appearance of stretch marks, wrinkles and age spots. Tackling the appearance of stretch marks and supporting collagen production, it functions in a way similar to jojoba oil which is considered a liquid wax by guarding against loss of moisture to the skin. Candelilla wax also has anti-inflammatory properties that help to calm your scaly skin, if required.
Sweet Almond Oil
Almond oil is known as an emollient, which means it can balance the absorption of moisture and water loss. It can keep the skin hydrated because it is super lightweight and fast-absorbing. Almond oil rejuvenates the skin, improves skin tone, and reduces the appearance of scars or marks. Sweet Almond oil is rich in Oleic acid (Omega 9) which plays an integral role in the inflammatory response of the skin, the appearance and feel (texture and softness) of the skin, and the ability to act as a barrier (normal skin function).
