The newest addition to my ReNew line of skincare is my ReNew Pomegranate Organic Lip Balm. Made with 100% organic ingredients this healing and protective balm is a year around must. Here in a list of the ingredients I use and way:
Pomegranate Seed oil is a therapeutic ingredient in lots of high end / high priced skin care. I use a CO2 extract of organic Pomegranate Seeds. The CO2 extracting presses gives use a light oil with all the healing properties of the whole seed. Extremely high in antioxidants and lipids (good fatty acids) including the rare “pucinic acid. Pomegranate seed is known to nourish and moisturize the skin, helps to improve elasticity and preventing aging. It is also known to help with sun and ultraviolet damage.
Organic Avocado Oil: Contains: vitamins A. B1, B2, Pantothenic acid, Vit. D, E, protein, lecithin, fatty acids Very penetrating and a superb emollient. Nourishing for dry and dehydrated skin, eczema, solar keratosis, improves elasticity. Avocado oils moisturizing and skin softening properties make it a valuable addition to anti-wrinkle, anti-aging and mature skin blends.
Organic pure Shea Butter: Traditionally processed Shea Butter retains all of the botanical riches such as Vitamin A compounds, allantoin (found in aloe and comfrey), and circuminoids (anti-cancer compounds found in cumin) and catechins (anti-oxidant flavenoids found in green tea.) Shea Butter has been tested and proven effective at diminishing various signs of aging, skin regeneration in cases of sunburns and scars, wrinkle reduction, and both helping to prevent and reversing sun damage.
Organic Cocoa Butter: Rich and creamy and redolent of the chocolate that is its source, all natural Cocoa Butter is the ultimate skin conditioner.
Organic Coconut Oil: Traditionally Coconut oil has been used in Polynesia as both a hair and skin moisturizer and conditioning treatment. Coconut oil has long been used in skin care for its antimicrobial properties and as a moisturizer.
Sea Buckthorn Berry and Calendula CO2 Extracts: known for millennia for their skin healing benefits.
Local Beeswax: this is what helps to keep the balm solid. It also helps put up a barrier between your skin and the elements.
Baobab Oil: Rich in vitamins A, E, and F and sterols, baobab oil absorbs quickly and is a wonderful oil to use in dry skin treatments and products designed to moisturize.
That’s it, that’s all the ingredients. And unlike the $30 Pomegranate balms out there that are over 50% fillers / waxes every ingredient has a purpose and every one is a “active” ingredient. 1/2oz tube $4.99.
