Glyceryl Stearate (GMS 60) Emulsifier

Glyceryl Stearate, also known as Glyceryl MonoStearate, or GMS, is EcoCert certified,   natural glyceryl ester from stearic acid (glycerin and stearic acid) which offers skin conditioning, moisturisation and hydration due to the glycerin component.    Glyceryl Stearate is one of the best choices, for thickening and stabilizing, to use in combination with the lactylates, where it also functions as an emollient, and gives the emulsion more smoothness. Approved for Organic Products Glyceryl Stearate (GMS) Glyceryl Stearate, also known as Glyceryl MonoStearate, or GMS, is EcoCert certified. Glyceryl Stearate is the natural glyceryl ester from stearic acid (glycerin and stearic acid) which offers skin conditioning, moisturization and hydration due to the glycerin component.  Functions as a non-ionic opacifier, thickener, and formulation stabilizer, where it also imparts a softer, smoother, feel to your emulsions. Glyceryl stearate (GMS) is one of the most commonly used ingredients in personal care formulations. But it’s a material that is not well understood by most formulators. GMS is normally used as a low-HLB thickening agent in lamellar gel network (LGN)-based oil-in-water emulsions, often combined with fatty alcohols. LGN-based emulsions containing thickening polymers are the most common type of oil-in-water formulations sold globally. Why is it used in cosmetics and personal care products? Glyceryl Stearate acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It also slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. Glyceryl Stearate, and Glyceryl Stearate SE help to form emulsions by reducing the surface tension of the substances to be emulsified. Characteristics An interesting characteristic of glyceryl stearate is the ability to make the oils which are combined in the emulsion non greasy, so for example Sunflower can be combined, without adding greasiness to the final product, allowing creams and lotions to be produced which carry the properties of the oil without the greasiness. Glyceryl stearate can be used to pearlise shower gel, shampoo and hand wash if added in combination with glycerine. How to use Heat the glyceryl stearate to 60c – 70c within the oil stage of your formulations. Ensure the glyceryl stearate is fully dissolved into your oil stage (use agitation if required) in order to minimise the risk of graininess in your final formulation. Recommended Usage Level 0 – 6% Maximum Usage Level 40% Products to Use in Moisture Cream Moisture Lotion Body Butter Cleanser Face Mask Skin Peels Shower Gel Shampoo Conditioner Precautions At pure usage levels it can cause irritation to the skin. When blending always take the following precautions:   Use gloves (disposable are ideal) Take care when handling hot oils Wear eye protection Work in a well ventilated room Keep ingredients and hot oils away from children If ingested, seek immediate medical advice If contact made with eyes, rinse immediately with clean warm water and seek medical advice if in any doubt.

Virgin Black Cumin Oil, also known as black seed oil, is cold-pressed extracted from the seeds of the  Nigella sativa  plant. This virgin oil is 100% pure with a dark amber and a characteristic herbaceous aroma. Black cumin oil is widely used in nutraceutical formulations and throughout the nutritional supplement industry. It is a highly sought-after and reputable oil for its believed health benefits and personal care applications. Virgin Cold-Pressed Oil. Dark Amber Color Black Seed Oil Virgin Black seed oil is extracted from seeds which come from a plant scientifically called  Nigella sativa , and also referred to as fennel flower, nutmeg flower, and Roman coriander. An annual flowering plant, it’s native to south and southwest Asia, growing from about 8-12 inches tall. Flowers have 5-10 feathery petals and are usually pale blue and white. Balloon-like pods hold the seeds. These open in the shape of a five-pointed star, and over time, the seeds change from a pale colour to black as they dry and mature. Black Seed Oil Benefits Black seed oil has long been taken internally to help improve the condition of hair, skin, and nails. We now know that we can get a number of the same benefits by applying the oil topically. The one that really sticks out as being different from many other plant ingredients is the oil’s powerful ability to restore the natural health and vitality of skin.   Nourishes:  Black seed oil provides vitamins along with minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc, giving skin what it needs to recover and repair itself. Reduces acne:  Black seed oil has a reputation as helping to fight acne. If you’re struggling with stubborn, adult acne, you need to try this oil. Fights infection:  In addition to fighting the bacteria that causes acne, black seed oil also fights against other types of bacteria and fungus, keeping the face infection-free. Try it on eczema, skin boils, ringworm, and psoriasis scales. Moisturizes:  Like many natural oils, black seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids that provide deep, lasting moisturization for skin. These fatty acids also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fades scars and dark spots:  Regular application of this oil will help to fade dark spots and old acne and other scars. Vitamin A and amino acids together with fatty acids help to encourage skin regeneration. Tames redness:  If you have rosacea or other skin conditions that are leaving you with red skin, black cumin seed can help.

Grape Seed Oil Virgin

Virgin Grape Seed Oil is easily absorbed, gentle oil that is light on the skin. Known in the cosmetics industry as a carrier oil, grape seed oil facilitates a wide array of commercially available creams and lotions. Grape Seed oil Virgin Grape seed oil is commonly referred to as its botanical name  Vitis vinifera . It is cold-pressed extracted from the seed of the grape as its name suggests.  It is unrefined and filtered with a dark green color and characteristic aroma and flavor. The oil is rich in essential fatty acids such as Oleic (C18:1) and Linoleic (C18:2) and has a relatively high smoke point.  Grape seed oil is widely used in cosmetic and culinary applications. In the cosmetic industry, grape seed oil is an ingredient in various skin and hair products for its emollient properties. It is applied topically to retain moisture in the skin, promote skin repair and elasticity, and treat damaged hair. Massage therapists often combine grape seed oil with other carrier oils because it is easily absorbed and smoothed over the skin. For culinary purposes, grape seed oil is used in salad dressings, baked products, and as a cooking oil. The naturally occurring high level of linoleic fatty acid makes it a preferred cooking oil for this added nutritional benefit. Benefits of Grape Seed Oil Wrinkle and Scar Reduction It’s no secret as to why cosmetic companies prefer to use grape seed oil as a base for their assorted creams, lotions, and ointments. In addition to an ideal viscosity, the oil is extremely rich in beta-carotene and vitamins D, C, E. It also happens to have a concentration of essential fatty acids like palmitic, stearic, and linoleic acid. These fatty acids have performed well in clinical anti-wrinkle trials. They have also proven to be effective at minimizing the prominence and size of scars. Prevention of Acne and Aging This nutrient-rich oil has found its way into myriad cosmetic products, especially products meant for the face and hair. Lip balms, face creams, conditioners, moisturizers and other products that contain grape seed oil are all rich in polyphenols. These polyphenols are anti-inflammatory antioxidants known to retard the aging process and prevent acne outbreaks. Consequently, a number of acne creams and toners use the oil as a carrier oil. Skin Balancing While it may seem counter-intuitive to use an oil to treat oily skin, that is exactly what grape seed oil is used for. The last thing you want to do with oily skin is dry it out. In fact, that oiliness is a reaction of skin that is too dry. Grape seed oil is light to the touch and never leaves skin feeling heavy with oil. Instead, it effectively moisturizes the skin, balancing both dry and oily patches. When used as a toner, grape seed oil can penetrate blocked pores and cleanse breakouts.

Ascorbic Acid

Active form of vitamin C as it occurs naturally. 99% pure (USP/FCC grade). pH 3 (0.5 % solution). White powder, ultra-fine, odorless. Easily soluble in water & alcohol. Potent antioxidant (shown to be able to protect skin from oxidative damages). Can improve appearance of aged and fragile skin. Widely used as add-on ingredient in skin-lightening products to correct hyper pigmentation and age spots. Antioxidant effect can be increased by combining L-ascorbic acid with L-ascorbyl palmitate and/or vitamin E. Used in Lotions, creams, sun care & after sun products, shampoos, makeup products (e.g. lipsticks).  Does not contain animal-derived components Country of Origin: China Ascorbic Acid 99% L-Ascorbic Acid, USP, Ultrafine powder is a water soluble antioxidant. Ascorbic acid, a potent, naturally occurring antioxidant is an important constituent of skin.  It plays a pivotal role in the prevention of dry skin and wrinkles, collagen synthesis and skin regeneration.  Ascorbate is found in all layers of the skin, but is more concentrated in the epidermis than the dermis.  However, it is readily depleted by about two thirds in cutaneous tissue stores with exposure to UV light. Biochemically, the body relies on ascorbate in the collagen biosynthetic pathway. It functions as a cofactor for two enzymes, lysyl and prolyl hydroxylases.  These are dependent on iron and Ascorbic acid prevents iron oxidation and thus inactivation of these hydroxylases, thereby maintaining their activity.   Ascorbic acid has been shown to be effective in increasing collagen deposits and also enhancing collagen lattice contractions, implying that exogenous.  Ascorbic acid application contributes to strengthening the collagen framework and maintaining a healthy dermis.  Topical application of Ascorbic acid has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Caused by mechanisms supporting collagen production, this leads to improving the appearance of the skin.  It has further been proven to reduce the severity of sunburns and age spots. Cutaneous levels of Ascorbic acid cannot be achieved well by ingestion, hence topical application is essential for preventing oxidative damage resulting from pollution, smoke and sunlight.  Its use has been shown to increase generation of stratum corneum barrier lipids and stabilize lipid profiles, in particular glucosphingolipids and ceramides.   The difficulty for the cosmetic formulator is that L-Ascorbic Acid is very unstable in aqueous solutions, as it starts to oxidize immediately, gradually producing color changes (orange/brown shift) and a reduction in activity as it converts to dehydroascorbic acid. For cosmetic use, it is best stabilized in an anhydrous lipid or silicone base, although some have reported increased stability with the use of Ferulic Acid as part of aqueous formulations. This product is an ultrafine powder, ready to use in anhydrous formulations without further grinding.  Our L-Ascorbic Acid meets USP specifications, but it is considered a cosmetic grade material once we repackage it. This is a cosmetic raw material and is meant for external use only in cosmetic formulations.  As with all of our materials, it should not be taken internally. Shelf Life:  The manufacturer’s stated “best use” date is two years from date of manufacture,  if the container is unopened and stored away from heat, light and air.  Over time, constant opening and closing of the container will eventually deplete the ability of the dessicant pack to adsorb moisture and the oxygen absorbent to absorb oxygen and allow the l-ascorbic acid to adsorb the moisture in the air and, in the presence of oxygen, it will begin to oxidize.  This will be noticeable as it takes on a yellow color in solution.

Refined Beeswax Pastilles

High quality, refined beeswax. The perfect raw ingredient for use in your cosmetics and other DIY projects. As the beeswax comes in pellets it is much easier to melt and measure than a bar of wax. White refined beeswax is a versatile product used in a variety of areas around the home from waterproofing to candle making. Beeswax can be heated and reused and rarely goes rancid. Beeswax Pastilles Our Beeswax pastilles are cosmetic grade beeswax that have been bleached and filtered to remove any impurities,  then shaped into small pellets for easy use. These Beeswax Beads are 100% natural and are refined through physical processes, and no chemicals are used. The natural wax is melted and filtered through active carbon to remove its scent and color, which may vary from white to off-white. These beads are then used in formulations where a cream base or end product is fragrance-free and white in color, but to which color and fragrance can later be added. Beeswax pastilles can be used in lotions, creams, balms, body butter and even soaps. They provide body and stiffness to formulations and assist as an incomplete emulsifier or thickener. For candle making, natural beeswax burns cleaner and longer than petroleum-based paraffin waxes. It does not smoke as with petroleum-based paraffin. Made of 100% pure refined beeswax, this slow-burning wax is preferred when making aromatherapy-grade candles. Caution:  The melting point of this wax is between 62° and 67° C (143° to 152° F). Overheating this will impact its scent and color. Please melt at as low a heat as possible while stirring gently, and use it as soon as it is melted, as it will cook and render poor-quality results such as a cooked or burnt odor, and off-white color. This product has been fully filtered to remove all debris and results in a clean beeswax material. This versatile all-natural product is used in a number of applications including candle-making, formulating cosmetic goods such as lip balms, and even used as polishes or lubricants in industrial applications. Beeswax blocks are also sought after for their waterproofing capabilities and can be applied topically to outerwear, footwear or furniture for weather protection.

The definition of ‘natural’ according to the English Oxford Dictionary means ‘existing in or derived from nature; not made or caused by humankind’ . Coloured micas are made from ingredients formed from mineral rocks and we can probably all agree that rock from the Earth is natural. Of course to put these crushed rocks onto your face or in your cosmetic products without refining and purifying them first would be totally irresponsible practise not to mention extremely painful! How Are Coloured Micas Formed? They must go through a complex manufacturing process involving mica flakes, occasionally titanium dioxide and iron oxides or ultramarines depending on the end colour, to become the stunning colours that we have all come to know and love. For cosmetic use, coloured micas must then go through an extra process to refine and purify them even further which brings them to cosmetic grade standards for use in all products defined as cosmetic. What Can Coloured Micas Be Used In? Mica  are used in a wide variety of applications including decorative paints such as for car paintwork, wonderful effects can be achieved on the artists canvas as well as caligraphy. They are also used in card making, candle making (normally to decorate the surface) and of course cosmetics including soaps. Cosmetic grade coloured micas are  most famously known for their use in mineral makeup and are the preferred choice for colouring mineral eyeshadows, lip products, blushers, etc. They are also used by nail enthusiasts in nail polish and have gained incredible popularity as a natural alternative to colour soaps.  Are All Coloured Micas The Same? No. The colour range of coloured micas can cover the whole spectrum and beyond! Within that spectrum, you will then find certain colours can be metallic in nature, others iridescent, there are colour shifters as in chameleon and so many more. Then there is the system for size grading of coloured micas and in fact most mineral ingredients, this is done in microns. With coloured micas, generally the lower the micron size, the more inclined they will be to shimmer rather than sparkle and the coverage will be heavier . The higher the micron size the more sparkle they will have and less coverage.  To Dye Or Not To Dye Coloured micas coated with artificial dyes can bleed somewhat in soap, so when buying coloured micas for soap making, it is always best to check with your supplier on which type of micas they stock.  We choose not to stock coloured micas containing artificial dyes as we prefer to keep our products as close to ‘natural’ as we possibly can. Coloured Micas In Cosmetics Add them singularly to pre-mixed eyeshadow bases for stunning eyeshadows or  make up your own tailor made colour blend by mixing a few together. They are not limited to eyeshadows either,  some of the more muted pinks, lilacs, peaches and browns can be added to blusher bases to give a very pretty effect. Mica can also be used as eyeliners,  just dampen your eyeliner brush, tip a little out of your container into the lid or on to the back of your hand, dip in and draw – as simple as that! Remember, not to dip your wet brush into any containers of mineral powders, tip a little out first and use. Either way, in formulating mineral makeup we need these beauties like an artist needs his palette! Note:  It is important to remember that you should never grind your coloured micas unless you want them to lose their lustre.  Coloured micas are very sparkly and when used in M&P their vibrancy and sparkle is magnified even more. When mixed into the opaque batter in cold process soap they loose much of their sparkle but still retain their colour but less saturated. When used to decorate the surface, using many popular techniques such as mica oil swirls, our colours will really make your products stand out from the crowd. The coloured micas that you see in this category are the most popular colours used regularly in CP soap by our wonderful community of soapers. Suggested usage rates:- CP Bases – 1.0% to 5.0% calculated by total weight depending on the desired colour intensity. Opaque M&P Bases – 1.5% to 2% calculated by total weight. This equates to 3tsps to 5tsps of Coloured Mica per 500g of base depending on the desired colour intensity. Clear Translucent Bases- 0.25% to 0.5% calculated by total weight. This equates to  ½ tsp to 1tsp of Coloured Mica per 500g of base depending on the desired colour intensity.

Activated Charcoal Powder

“Activated charcoal” is made by manufacturers heating common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop internal spaces or pores that allow activated charcoal to trap chemicals.  It is for this reason that activated charcoal is often used to absorb toxic substances. Activated Charcoal Powder Activated charcoal, granular activated carbon, granular active carbon – all different terms which just so happen to refer to one specific type of charcoal. Or, more accurately, it is charcoal reheated and oxidized, making the charcoal highly porous. Even though charcoal on its own is known for being a fairly porous substance, when oxidized (or, in some cases, carbonized with other inert gases) the amount of porous spaces increases significantly. Activated Charcoal Uses One of the common utilizations of this porous carbon is to filter gas. Not as in fuel, but the gaseous substances that are either naturally produced or expelled from various machinery. Take, for example, air filters. Air is technically a gas, and when the air contains impure elements, a purifier in the form of a filter will help remove these impurities. In a slightly different form, the activated charcoal will perform the same function with water—a use common in fish tanks. Activated carbon attracts and holds organic chemicals from vapor and liquid streams cleaning them of unwanted chemicals. It does not have a great capacity for these chemicals, but is very cost effective for treating large volumes of air or water to remove dilute concentrations of contamination.  Can I Make My Own Activated Charcoal? We would not suggest trying to make your own Activated Charcoal. There are tutorials on the web to do so, but many instructions are unsafe in many ways. One of the reasons to come to a carbon expert is due to the strict testing that goes on before, during and after manufacturing. If you were to make your own charcoal and consume it, sure you may not feel immediate side-effects, but the wrong process could have a long-term negative effect. Why risk your health when one bag could last you a lifetime? What Is Activated Carbon Made From? Here at General Carbon, we carry activated carbon made from bituminous coal, lignite coal, coconut shell and wood. How Is Activated Carbon Made? There are two different ways to make activated carbon but for this article we will provide you with the more efficient way that will create higher quality and purer activated carbon. Activated carbon is made by being placed in a tank without oxygen and subjecting it to extremely high temperatures, 600-900 degrees Celsius. Afterwards, the carbon is exposed to different chemicals, commonly argon and nitrogen, and again placed in a tank and superheated from 600-1200 degrees Celsius. The second time the carbon is placed in the heat tank, it is exposed to steam and oxygen. Through this process, a pore structure is created and the usable surface area of the carbon greatly increases.

Wheat Germ Oil Refined

Wheat germ oil is also very high in vitamin E (255 mg/100g), and has the highest content of vitamin E of any food that has not undergone prior preparation or vitamin fortification. Wheat Germ Oil Refined Add a nutrient-rich, age-defying boost to your skincare routine by incorporating wheat germ oil into your regimen. Whether you take this oil as a supplement, add it to your recipes or use it topically, this type of oil offers numerous benefits, ranging from softening and moisturizing your skin to boosting its regenerative powers. If you’re interested in natural ways of supporting a healthy, glowing complexion, wheat-germ oil is worth investigating. Wheat Germ Information Wheat-germ oil is derived from wheat germ, which is considered the “heart” of wheat since it’s found at the center of the wheat berry. It feeds the wheat plant with nutrients to help it germinate and grow. Wheat germ is the most nutritious component of the wheat kernel and contains 23 different nutrients, including protein, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, iron and calcium. Its dense nutritional benefits make it a healthy addition to your diet. The oil is also nutrient-packed, which makes it particularly well-suited to moisturizing and soothing your skin. Wheat Germ Oil Benefits Wheat-germ oil is readily absorbed by your skin, which makes it an effective moisturizer and an appropriate topical treatment. When applied to your skin, wheat-germ oil delivers a healthy infusion of vitamin A, vitamin D, B vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids. These nutrients not only moisturize and heal dry or cracked skin, they also help prevent scarring. In particular, wheat-germ oil is a rich source of vitamin E, which helps reduce skin damage, fight free radicals, support healthy collagen formation and maintain even skin tone. How to Use Wheat-Germ Oil If you’re using wheat-germ oil topically, it’s best to use it as part of a blend. Because of its strong aroma, add no more than 10- to 15-percent wheat germ oil to your mixture. Also try base oils, such as jojoba or carrot, and essential oils, such as sandalwood, geranium, cedarwood, fennel, lavender and patchouli — all of which support healthy skin. In addition to using the oil topically, you can also drizzle it on vegetables or salads, or incorporate it into other dishes to give your recipes a nutritious boost.

Castor Oil USP

Castor oil is often overlooked as a health and beauty treatment and is often only thought of as a remedy for constipation, but it has a long history of being used for many other healing and beauty enhancing treatments too. The oil is derived from the seeds of the Castor plant ( Ricinus communis ) or it also has another common name – the seeds of the Palma Christi plant, also known as the palm of Christ and documentation of its use for medical purposes can be found as far back, as 1550 B. C., when the ancient Egyptians used it to treat eye irritation Castor Oil USP History of the Castor Seed:  Ricinus Communis Castor oil comes from the castor seed 1 ,   Ricinus communis , which has a very unusual chemical composition. Castor oil is a triglyceride, comprised of fatty acids, 90 percent of which is ricinoleic acid. This unique fatty acid is found in lower concentrations in a few other seeds and oils (0.27 percent in cottonseed oil and 0.03 percent in soybean oil) and is thought to be responsible for castor oil’s unique healing properties. The castor seed plant is native to India. Centuries ago, the plant was referred to as “Palma Christe” because the leaves were said to resemble the hand of Christ. This association likely arose out of people’s reverence for the plant’s healing abilities. It was later adopted for medicinal use in Ancient Egypt, China, Persia, Africa, Greece, Rome, and eventually in 17 th  Century Europe and the Americas. Castor oil is now widely used in industry. The stem of the plant is used in the textile industry, particularly in Russia, where castor oil is known as “Kastorka.” The oil has a very consistent viscosity and won’t freeze, which makes it ideal for lubricating equipment in severely cold climates. Modern non-medicinal uses for castor oil include: Food additive and flavoring agent Mold inhibitor Ingredient in skin care products and cosmetics (lipstick, shampoo, soap, and others) Used in the manufacturing of plastics, rubbers, synthetic resins, fibers, paints, varnishes, lubricants, sealants, dyes, and leather treatments; the lubricants company Castrol took its name from castor oil The oil was first used as an aircraft lubricant in World War I. So, it has a number of handy industrial uses. But did you know that the castor seeds from which castor oil is made can be DEADLY? Part of the Castor Seed Heals—But Another Part Kills! The potent toxin ricin 3  is made from a protein in the castor seeds that, if ingested (orally, nasally, or injected), gets into the ribosomes of your cells where it prevents protein synthesis, which kills the cells. Ricin is made from the “mash” that is left over after processing castor seeds into oil. Just 1 milligram of ricin is fatal if inhaled or ingested, and much less than that if injected. Eating just 5 to 10 castor seeds would be fatal. Once poisoned, there’s no antidote, which is why ricin has been used as a chemical warfare agent. Even though such a toxic component is also derived from this seed, castor oil isn’t considered dangerous. According to the International Journal of Toxicology’s Final Report on Castor Oil 4  , you don’t have to worry about castor oil being contaminated by ricin, because ricin does not “partition” into the castor oil. The oil has been added to cosmetic products for many years, without incident. For example, castor oil and hydrogenated castor oil were reportedly used in 769 and 202 cosmetic products, respectively, in 2002. The U.S. FDA gives castor oil a “thumbs up, ” deeming it “generally regarded as safe and effective” for use as a stimulant laxative. The Joint Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)/World Health Organization (WHO) Expert Committee on Food Additives has established an acceptable daily castor oil intake of up to 0.7 mg/kg body weight. This amounts to, roughly, one tablespoon for adults and one teaspoon for children. Taking castor oil orally usually results in a “purging” of the digestive tract in about four to six hours. According to the International Castor Oil Association  5 , studies in which people were dosed with castor oil at dietary concentrations as high as 10 percent for 90 days did not produce any ill effects. In spite of the fact that U.S. FDA and the International Castor Oil Association have pronounced castor oil to be safe, if you are going to try it, as I’ve mentioned previously, proceed with extreme caution because a number of negative side effects have been reported.

Refined Grape Seed Oil

Grape Seed Oil is a natural oil. It’s an easily absorbed, gentle oil that is light on the skin. Known in the cosmetics industry as a carrier oil, grape seed oil facilitates a wide array of commercially available creams and lotions. Extraction: Solvent Extracted, Clear Light Yellow-Green. Odorless Refined, Bleached, Deodorized (RBD) and Winterized Grape Seed oil Grape seed oil is commonly referred to as its botanical name  Vitis vinifera . It is cold-pressed extracted from the seed of the grape as its name suggests.  It is unrefined and filtered with a dark green color and characteristic aroma and flavor. The oil is rich in essential fatty acids such as Oleic (C18:1) and Linoleic (C18:2) and has a relatively high smoke point.  Grape seed oil is widely used in cosmetic and culinary applications. In the cosmetic industry, grape seed oil is an ingredient in various skin and hair products for its emollient properties. It is applied topically to retain moisture in the skin, promote skin repair and elasticity, and treat damaged hair. Massage therapists often combine grape seed oil with other carrier oils because it is easily absorbed and smoothed over the skin. For culinary purposes, grape seed oil is used in salad dressings, baked products, and as a cooking oil. The naturally occurring high level of linoleic fatty acid makes it a preferred cooking oil for this added nutritional benefit. Benefits of Grape Seed Oil Wrinkle and Scar Reduction It’s no secret as to why cosmetic companies prefer to use grape seed oil as a base for their assorted creams, lotions, and ointments. In addition to an ideal viscosity, the oil is extremely rich in beta-carotene and vitamins D, C, E. It also happens to have a concentration of essential fatty acids like palmitic, stearic, and linoleic acid. These fatty acids have performed well in clinical anti-wrinkle trials. They have also proven to be effective at minimizing the prominence and size of scars. Prevention of Acne and Aging This nutrient-rich oil has found its way into myriad cosmetic products, especially products meant for the face and hair. Lip balms, face creams, conditioners, moisturizers and other products that contain grape seed oil are all rich in polyphenols. These polyphenols are anti-inflammatory antioxidants known to retard the aging process and prevent acne outbreaks. Consequently, a number of acne creams and toners use the oil as a carrier oil. Skin Balancing   While it may seem counter-intuitive to use an oil to treat oily skin, that is exactly what grape seed oil is used for. The last thing you want to do with oily skin is dry it out. In fact, that oiliness is a reaction of skin that is too dry. Grape seed oil is light to the touch and never leaves skin feeling heavy with oil. Instead, it effectively moisturizes the skin, balancing both dry and oily patches. When used as a toner, grape seed oil can penetrate blocked pores and cleanse breakouts.

Witch Hazel-Natural

Our Witch Hazel is pure and top quality.  It is a 14%  Natural Grain Alcohol  concentration which is the typical concentration for premium Witch Hazel. This highly stable liquid product is water, alcohol and glycol soluble and is a great natural base for a multitude of cosmetic formulations. Witch Hazel is easily incorporated in clear formulations as well as many creams and lotions. Application: -On skin, dab a cotton ball in the witch hazel and rub onto the affected area.  -For varicose veins, soak towel in witch hazel and put towel onto the affected area for roughly 20-30 minutes a day. Product of USA Witch Hazel Witch hazel is an extract from the leaves and bark of the North American shrub Hamamelis virginiana. It has a long history in various folk medicinal treatments. According to Drugs.com, there are more than 30 traditional uses for witch hazel including hemorrhoids, burns, cancers, tuberculosis, colds and fever. Its primary use through the years has been for the treatment of skin conditions, and scientists are just now beginning to understand how it works and how it can benefit the skin. Anti-inflammatory One of witch hazel’s most impressive properties is its anti-inflammatory effects on conditions such as diaper rash, razor burn and bug bites. Inflammation is caused by free radicals in skin cells, and scientists at Japan’s Shiga Central Laboratory studied 65 plant extracts for their potential anti-inflammatory applications as an anti-aging treatment for skin. Only two of the extracts exhibited active oxygen-scavenging effects and protective activity against cell damage, with one being Hamamelis virginiana. Antimicrobial Another traditional use for witch hazel is to soothe poison ivy, treat chicken pox and heal bruises and cuts, all caused or irritated by viruses and bacteria. A German study in 2002, abstracted by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, investigated the antimicrobial activity of a Hamamelis distillate on bacteria and fungi such as Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans and other organisms in vitro. The results showed a significant antimicrobial activity for the witch hazel extract, leading the researchers to conclude that it can be helpful in preventing the bacterial colonization that has a central role in the development of atopic dermatitis and intertrigo dermatitis, as well as other microbial skin conditions. Astringent Witch hazel is considered to be a potent astringent due to the high level of tannins in the leaves, according to Drugs.com. The tannins help to tighten skin proteins which then form a protecting covering to help promote skin healing and stop bleeding. This property makes it particularly useful for treating skin conditions like eczema, as well as restoring vessel tone in varicose veins and also soothing hemorrhoids. Moisturizer Women frequently use witch hazel to lock moisture into skin. A study at the University Hospital Luebeck Dermatology Department in Germany treated children suffering from skin disorders and injuries with a Hamamelis ointment and found that it was safe and as effective as dexpanthenol. Dexpanthenola is a prescription drug used as a moisturizer to improve hydration of the stratum corneum, or outer skin layer, to reduce water loss from skin and to maintain skin softness and elasticity. Sun Damage Another traditional use for witch hazel is to treat sunburn and prevent peeling and flaking. Two separate studies at the BioSkin Institute for Dermatological Research and Development in Germany looked at witch hazel’s sun-protectant properties. The first, in 1998, treated healthy patients with a 10 percent hamamelis lotion after exposure to UVB doses, and the second, in 2002, treated healthy volunteers with the lotion after exposure to UVA radiation. In both instances, the lotion produced a significant suppression of skin redness or burning on the skin after the radiation exposure. Source: Livestrong.com

Grape Seed Oil Virgin Organic

Organic Virgin Grape Seed Oil is easily absorbed, gentle oil that is light on the skin. Known in the cosmetics industry as a carrier oil, grape seed oil facilitates a wide array of commercially available creams and lotions. Product of Chile Net 100ml View organic certificate Grape Seed oil Virgin Organic Grape seed oil is commonly referred to as its botanical name  Vitis vinifera . It is cold-pressed extracted from the seed of the grape as its name suggests.  It is unrefined and filtered with a dark green color and characteristic aroma and flavor. The oil is rich in essential fatty acids such as Oleic (C18:1) and Linoleic (C18:2) and has a relatively high smoke point.  Grape seed oil is widely used in cosmetic and culinary applications. In the cosmetic industry, grape seed oil is an ingredient in various skin and hair products for its emollient properties. It is applied topically to retain moisture in the skin, promote skin repair and elasticity, and treat damaged hair. Massage therapists often combine grape seed oil with other carrier oils because it is easily absorbed and smoothed over the skin. For culinary purposes, grape seed oil is used in salad dressings, baked products, and as a cooking oil. The naturally occurring high level of linoleic fatty acid makes it a preferred cooking oil for this added nutritional benefit. Benefits of Grape Seed Oil Wrinkle and Scar Reduction It’s no secret as to why cosmetic companies prefer to use grape seed oil as a base for their assorted creams, lotions, and ointments. In addition to an ideal viscosity, the oil is extremely rich in beta-carotene and vitamins D, C, E. It also happens to have a concentration of essential fatty acids like palmitic, stearic, and linoleic acid. These fatty acids have performed well in clinical anti-wrinkle trials. They have also proven to be effective at minimizing the prominence and size of scars. Prevention of Acne and Aging This nutrient-rich oil has found its way into myriad cosmetic products, especially products meant for the face and hair. Lip balms, face creams, conditioners, moisturizers and other products that contain grape seed oil are all rich in polyphenols. These polyphenols are anti-inflammatory antioxidants known to retard the aging process and prevent acne outbreaks. Consequently, a number of acne creams and toners use the oil as a carrier oil. Skin Balancing   While it may seem counter-intuitive to use an oil to treat oily skin, that is exactly what grape seed oil is used for. The last thing you want to do with oily skin is dry it out. In fact, that oiliness is a reaction of skin that is too dry. Grape seed oil is light to the touch and never leaves skin feeling heavy with oil. Instead, it effectively moisturizes the skin, balancing both dry and oily patches. When used as a toner, grape seed oil can penetrate blocked pores and cleanse breakouts.

This means the oil can moisturize like no other oil can because it  absorbs  so well into the skin. This moisturizing power is also said to be perfect for aging, rough, dry, and scaly skin. Antioxidants:  The powerful antioxidants in cranberry oil help protect the skin against environmental stressors. Because they’re absorbed so well, they are even more effective.   These unique nutrients working together also provide anti-aging effects, helping to protect the skin from the elements, while moisturizing and strengthening, helping firm and tighten your look.

Wheat Germ Oil Virgin

Wheat germ oil is also very high in vitamin E (255 mg/100g), and has the highest content of vitamin E of any food that has not undergone prior preparation or vitamin fortification.   Wheat Germ Oil Virgin Add a nutrient-rich, age-defying boost to your skincare routine by incorporating wheat germ oil into your regimen. Whether you take this oil as a supplement, add it to your recipes or use it topically, this type of oil offers numerous benefits, ranging from softening and moisturizing your skin to boosting its regenerative powers. If you’re interested in natural ways of supporting a healthy, glowing complexion, wheat-germ oil is worth investigating. Wheat Germ Information Wheat-germ oil is derived from wheat germ, which is considered the “heart” of wheat since it’s found at the center of the wheat berry. It feeds the wheat plant with nutrients to help it germinate and grow. Wheat germ is the most nutritious component of the wheat kernel and contains 23 different nutrients, including protein, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, iron and calcium. Its dense nutritional benefits make it a healthy addition to your diet. The oil is also nutrient-packed, which makes it particularly well-suited to moisturizing and soothing your skin. Wheat Germ Oil Benefits Wheat-germ oil is readily absorbed by your skin, which makes it an effective moisturizer and an appropriate topical treatment. When applied to your skin, wheat-germ oil delivers a healthy infusion of vitamin A, vitamin D, B vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids. These nutrients not only moisturize and heal dry or cracked skin, they also help prevent scarring. In particular, wheat-germ oil is a rich source of vitamin E, which helps reduce skin damage, fight free radicals, support healthy collagen formation and maintain even skin tone. How to Use Wheat-Germ Oil If you’re using wheat-germ oil topically, it’s best to use it as part of a blend. Because of its strong aroma, add no more than 10- to 15-percent wheat germ-oil to your mixture. Also try base oils, such as jojoba or carrot, and essential oils, such as sandalwood, geranium, cedarwood, fennel, lavender and patchouli — all of which support healthy skin. In addition to using the oil topically, you can also drizzle it on vegetables or salads, or incorporate it into other dishes to give your recipes a nutritious boost. Considerations In addition to wheat-germ oil’s dark color and strong, heavy fragrance, those with a wheat or gluten allergy or sensitivity should avoid using wheat-germ oil. Additionally, because of wheat-germ oil’s sensitivity to light, temperature fluctuations and oxidation, it’s best to store it in the refrigerator, where it can stay fresh, for a long while.
