Best Skin Care Ingredients from Nature

  2. 2. Cupuassu Butter<br />Extracted from the seed of the cupuassu tree, found in the Tapajos, Xingu, and Tocantins river basins in the Amazon Rainforest -- cupuassu butter absorbs approximately 240 percent more water than lanolin, making it a fabulous ingredient for moisturizing products because it helps skin absorb moisture from the environment.<br /><br />
  3. 3. Blackberry Leaf Extract<br />The sweet, delicious blackberry fruit, which is found throughout the Western Hemisphere and South America, has a very powerful leaf. Historically the blackberry leaf has been used to quickly heal bleeding gums and mouth sores by chewing it, and to remedy scaly skin conditions and psoriasis due to its healing properties. And currently, an extract of it is being combined with other ingredients in skin care products to increase the production of elastin to help skin retain it's elasticity.<br /><br />
  4. 4. Lemongrass<br />Lemongrass, native to India, is known for its antiseptic quality and is commonly used as an essential oil to treat infections and skin conditions like acne. The oil can also be added to a bath to soothe sore muscles and aid in relaxation.<br /><br />
  5. 5. Pomegranate<br />The key component in this fruit, native to the Iranian Plateau, is antioxidants. While pomegranates have been cultivated since ancient times, only recently have studies shown that they have the ability to heal skin wounds. For those who love the sun, this is great news. The antioxidants in the fruit may be able to repair UV-damaged skin and might possibly have the ability to extend the life of skin cells that produce collagen and elastin -- the stuff that makes skin look young, fresh, and plump.<br /><br />
  6. 6. Soybean<br />While you may recognize soybean from all the Asian cuisine you've been eating , we must point out that it's not just a super food The soybean has been found to protect the skin from free-radical damage and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, plus studies have shown that soy can help brighten your skin tone, fade dark spots and even slow hair growth and you've got yourself a pretty powerful bean.<br /><br />
  7. 7. Tourmaline<br />While you may already wear your tourmaline as jewelry around your neck, this energizing crystal, which originates from Sri Lanka and became popular in Europe, is great for the skin as well. Its benefits are released when it's ground into tiny crystals that start to warm as they are rubbed onto the skin. This creates a positive and a negative charge that helps the skin absorb vital nutrients and stimulates skin cells to create a radiant glow.<br /><br />
  8. 8. Dill<br />It turns out that dill, the small herb that originates from Eastern Europe, isn't just good served on fish. For years it's been used for its disinfectant properties. Currently it's been introduced into skin care products where it is mixed with blackberry leaf extract in a rejuvenating moisturizer that is applied after a using a naturally charged biomineral concentrate. Together the system restores energy to elastin-deficient skin and recreates a more youthful appearance.<br /><br />
  9. 9. Acai<br />It's no wonder many of the Victoria's Secret models come from Brazil -- they have great figures and wonderful skin. Probably because of the benefits they get from fruits like Acai. Found in the Amazon Rainforest, this fruit is said to contain the highest concentration of antioxidants available in any fruit. It's been shown to improve digestion, fight cancer, and best of all -- fight the free radicals that cause premature aging.<br /><br />
  10. 10. Seaweed<br />Seaweed is teeming with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants -- just one more reason to keep our oceans clean. When used in skin care products, seaweed has healing and rejuvenating properties. The Vitamin A and C found in it work to maintain collagen, and the phytonutrients in it help increase blood flow to the surface of your skin causing a healthy glow.<br /><br />
  11. 11. Aloe Vera<br />Aloe vera, a plant that is part of the cactus family and likely originated in North Africa and the Canary Islands, contains a gel-like substance in its juicy fronds. This gel is known for its ability to heal burns, blisters, sunburns and many other skin ailments. It has been used for over 6,000 years to naturally cool, soothe, and soften skin -- so why stop using it now?<br /><br />
