Organic Skin Food FAQ
Absolutely Pure Organic Skin Food is the whole-food of skincare, with a low PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid) and high SFA (saturated fatty acid) content.
Simple, straightforward ingredients make it suitable for all skins; whether yours is oily, combination, dry, dehydrated or sensitive and eczema-prone - you can customise it with a spritz of Skin Drink.
Hand-crafted with tallow from grass-fed UK cattle for its superior moisturising properties and ability to slow transdermal water loss - this is especially important to note if you have eczema as your skin may not produce much oil and will be less able to retain water.
Tallow is practically free of wrinkle-promoting, dna-damaging PUFA with its whopping 17% skin-healing stearic acid!
Skin Food will nourish your skin, balance sebum, improve hydration, strengthen and maintain the integrity of cells, reduce your risk of developing lipofuscin and the signs of premature aging as it is low in PUFA and naturally high in rejuvenating vitamin E (which has been shown in many scientific studies to play a vital role in reversing the effects of aging on the skin), along with vitamins A, B, D, K and the potent anti-inflammatory nutrient CLA (conjugated linoleic acid).
Only a tiny amount is required, you'll be amazed by how little you need, so run your finger across the surface of the balm rather than scooping it out of the jar.
Available unscented for sensitive skin and very lightly-scented with sweet orange or rose geranium; chosen for their uplifting, mood-enhancing aromas and non-phototoxicity.
Rose geranium is purported to hydrate dry skin, clear acne, reduce signs of aging, minimise the appearance of scars, soothe conditions such as eczema and rosacea and induce feelings of calm and relaxation.
Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory sweet orange is said to slow the rate of skin damage experienced from UV light exposure and pollution due to it’s high antioxidant content, vitamin C in particular.
All moisturisers and oils are best applied to damp skin to aid hydration; your skin needs water because it’s always evaporating.
Never use any facial moisturiser on dry skin.
It’s a waste of product and can actually have the opposite effect as it sits there, sealing in dryness, which could cause clogging over time.
You can use use tap water but the mineral content can be irritating and drying so delicately-fragranced Absolutely Pure Skin Drink would be a better choice.
