Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) Essential oils
The CPTG process certifies that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in essential oils that would reduce their efficacy. Essential oils have been proven to have antimicrobial properties and hence have been used in cosmetics to reduce the need for adding synthetic preservatives. (dōTERRA International, 2017)
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO) contains 100% medium chain fatty acids which gives it the property of being readily absorbed through the skin, leaving skin feeling less greasy than other oils. The high fatty acid concentration of FCO also means that it can stand against oxidation very effectively and therefore has a very long shelf life.
Fractionated Coconut Oil is composed predominantly of Capric and Caprylic acid giving it antiseptic and disinfectant properties. FCO is soothing to the skin which helps reduce the symptoms of psoriasis, eczema, chapped lips, dry skin and skin inflammation (Organic Information Services, 2016).
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Olive oil is an antioxidant which combined with the effects of FCO enrich the antiseptic benefits and long shelf life (self-preserving) properties of this cream. Olive oil has also been used in the treatment of infant dermatitis and its use has been linked to statistically significant improvements in neonatal dermatitis symptoms (Al-Waili N.S 2005, p160). Its beneficial effects in treating infants who have dermatological problems of infancy when combined with beeswax and other natural products include properties which are antibacterial and antifungal.
Beeswax in this product is used as its primary thickening agent and contributes to the cream’s semi-solid smooth composition. Beeswax forms a barrier to the skin where it is applied and has been proven effective in preventing infant nappy rash and has been used to treat dermatitis, eczema, fungal infections and inflammation (Fratini, F. et al 2016, p. 839). The addition of beeswax as a thickening agent enables the product to remain on the area of skin where it is applied for a longer duration. The antibacterial and low allergenic properties of beeswax also enhance the properties of substances containing beeswax.
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Eucalyptus Oil
Eucalyptus essential oil has been used to reduce symptoms of coughs, colds, and congestion and to relieve muscle and joint pain. It acts as an expectorant for loosening phlegm and easing congestion. The oil of the eucalyptus leaf has been found to have antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant and immune building properties. It may also reduce inflammation. A study published in Clinical Microbiology & Infection suggests that eucalyptus oil aids in reducing the bacteria that contribute to Haemophilus influenzae and some strains of streptococcus. (Nordqvist, J 2017)
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Lavender Oil
Lavender oil also has a long-standing history of use as an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antiseptic agent. Its use for symptom reduction for persons with dermatitis, chapped skin, skin infections and skin irritation are well documented (Rose, J 1992).
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Tea Tree Oil
Also known as melaleuca oil, this oil has traditionally been used by Aboriginal people for management of skin wounds and fungal infections. It is thought to have antibacterial and antifungal effects. (Nordqvist, J 2014)
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Sandalwood Oil
The health benefits of Sandalwood essential oil can be attributed to its properties as an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, emollient, expectorant and sedative.
When applied to the skin, it protects wounds, sores, boils, and pimples from developing infections or from becoming septic. It provides relief from all types of inflammation. As an antispasmodic it enhances relaxation and muscle spasms which cause aches and coughing.
As an emollient, sandalwood oil soothes the skin, relieves it from inflammation and irritation, cures infections and keeps you feeling fresh and cool.
Sandalwood essential oil behaves as an expectorant and is particularly effective in treating coughs. It also fights the viral infections which initially cause the coughing, cold, flu, mumps, or any other illness.
Sandalwood oil has antiphlogistic properties and gives relief from inflammation resulting from fever and viral infections.
Its sedative properties mean that it reduces inflammation, anxiety, fear, stress, and restlessness. Furthermore, it induces relaxation, calmness, concentration, inner vision, and positive thoughts.
