Macadamia Oil

According to The Purist Company, Macadamia oil is cold-pressed from the nuts of Australian macadamia trees. Macadamia oil is the 'creme de la creme' of nut oils. It is very similar in composition to skin sebum, and is therefore very gentle and absorbed rapidly into the skin, giving a silky luxurious feel.

Nature's Best Aromatherapy Products says the following:

"Uses: All skin types.  Contains the highest level of palmitoleic acid of any plant oil.  This is found in human sebum among the young, but the level dramatically drops in mature skin. For this reason Price suggests Macadamia Nut oil for the skin of older people.  Tones aged or dry skin, Skin-softening. wound healing.  Macadamia Oil penetrates the skin very quickly.  Price calls it a "vanishing oil".  In France Macadamia Nut Oil is used as an aid against sunburn. Macadamia's fatty acids are helpful in maintaining the skin's critical water barrier functions.  It is self-stabilizing and requires no antioxidants. In addition, it has an excellent safety profile that includes low order of oral toxicity. All of this suggests its usefulness in facial products, baby products, balms and lip glosses."

Mountain Rose Herbs.com says:  "This fine oil comes from the pressed nuts of the Macadamia tree. It is a priceless delight for the skin and has proven itself to be one of the best regenerative oils available.  It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, and closely resembles sebum (the oil naturally produced by ones skin to help protect it). Macadamia oil is a fabulous, protective oil with a high absorption rate and has been successfully used as a healing oil for scars, sunburns, minor wounds and other irritations."

Olive Oil

healthy-skincare.com describes the benefits of olive oil for skin as follows:

"Olive oil can be used in a skin care regiment in a number of ways.  As a skin moisturizer. Apply olive oil to dry skin on any body part (face, elbows, feet, etc.) to help the skin regain its natural oil balance. Olive oil can be added to many of the natural facial home recipes that exist.  Olive oil has antioxidant properties and thus protects the skin from those harmful and damaging free radicals. It is beneficial in slowing the aging signs such as fine lines and wrinkles.  Some research has indicated that applying olive oil on the skin after being in the sun may help reduce the damage caused by sun exposure.  Other potential benefits of olive oil as an olive oil skin care product include: treatment of - minor skin wounds, eczema, and psoriasis.  The vitamin E in olive oil makes it a great overall skin care product."

http://www.healthy-skincare.com/olive-oil-skin-care.html

 

At Hubpages.com, someone tells of their own experience using olive oil discovered that extra virgin olive oil is very good in soothing skin irritation and inflammation.

"As for skin irritation one time my legs is so itchy and since I can't find any ointment on my drawer I tried using extra virgin olive oil, and in a minute the itchiness is gone, I didn't even wash the affected area before I apply the extra virgin olive oil, but It works wonder.  Olive oil as body moisturizer, it contains powerful antioxidant that can help retain the beauty of your skin, help heal skin diseases, and make your skin tighter and firmer.  Olive Oil is considered a healthy oil because it contains monounsaturated fat (omega 9) and polyphenols (a potent antioxidant)."

Beeswax

According to exinearticles.com, "Beeswax works well in cosmetic products because of the "wax esthers" that exist in both beeswax and human skin. These compounds help to bind and emulsify ointments, lipstick and lotions. As a natural hydrating ingredient that increases skin essential moisture, beeswax is safe to use and commonly found in hand cream and body cream that help retain natural skin moisture and relieve itch from sensitive skin."

http://ezinearticles.com/?Uses-of-Beeswax&id=485762

 

ehow.com gives the following rave review for the use of beeswax for topical skin application:  "Beeswax locks in moisture, fosters cells and protects skin from damaging environmental factors. Honeygirlorganic.com reports beeswax effectively "softens your skin and creates a long-lasting protective coating against the elements. It also is a naturally nourishing moisturizer as well as being anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic and a germicidal antioxidant." According to Botanical.com, "Even after processing, beeswax still remains a biologically active product, retaining some anti-bacterial properties and also contains some vitamin A, which is necessary for normal cell development." The Mayo Clinic recommends lip balm made from beeswax for chapped lip care and prevention.  Because of the healing, softening and antiseptic properties associated with beeswax, numerous skin care lines incorporate it."

Vitamin E

Experts agree.  Vitamin e is a wonderful nutrient for the skin.  According to healthy-skincare.com,

Benefits of Vitamin e for Skin

In terms of skin health and skin care, vitamin e benefits are numerous. In fact, skin care products that contain vitamin e have become an essential part of healthy skin care.

Antioxidant

First of all, because of its antioxidant activity, vitamin e is vital in protecting skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution, drugs, and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals. It is believed that vitamin e is most effective in its natural alcohol form rather than its acetate form where it is a less effective antioxidant. Watch for this in the labeling of skin care products.

Regulator for Vitamin A

The benefits of vitamin e for healthy skin care also include its ability to regulate vitamin a in the body, which itself is important for healthy skin.

Anti-Aging Benefits of Vitamin E

Vitamin e added to lotions, creams, and other skin care products, as well as taken orally, plays a role in the anti-aging of skin. It helps skin look younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Also, free radicals are believed to play an important role in skin aging and therefore the antioxidant activity is quite valuable for this skin problem.  Vitamin e can aid in the treatment of various skin diseases or skin conditions. Topical applications such as those used to treat psoriasis is one of the benefits of vitamin e.

SeaBoost Cream Herbs

SeaBoost Cream contains 7 herbs that help to make it such a great product.

 

Coleus Amboinicus

 

According to Wikipedia, �The leaves have � had many traditional medicinal uses, especially for the treatment of coughs, sore throats and nasal congestion, but also for a range of other problems such as infections, rheumatism and flatulence.�

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coleus_amboinicus 

 

In the following article found at http://www.positivehealth.com/article-view.php?articleid=2543,  Anne McIntyre tells us of possible benefits of Coleus Amboinicus

Coleus forskohlii / Plectranthus barbatus: A Unique Healer

Although I have been in practice for over 25 years, I have only recently come across Coleus (which is now known under another name since it has been categorized in the genus Plectranthus. For the sake of ease, and because this is name that it is generally used, I will refer to it as Coleus!) So far the plant is rather a mystery to me. Most of the research has been carried out on an isolated constituent known as forskolin and since it is not a widely used plant, there is little anecdotal evidence on the use of the whole plant available. Potentially, Coleus is an incredible healer! As I introduce it into my practice, hopefully I will obtain knowledge gained from experience to verify what follows...

Coleus is an Ayurvedic herb, a small perennial member of the mint family which can be found growing in subtropical areas in India, Nepal, Burma, Thailand and Sri Lanka. It has tuberous roots and bright green leaves and has a distinctly camphor-like aroma. It contains labdane diterpenes (including forskolin) and essential oil.[1] Its taste is pungent and from an Ayurvedic perspective, it has the ability to balance all three doshas.[2]

For centuries, the leaves and root of Coleus have been a traditional remedy in India for digestive complaints, heart and lung conditions, asthma, insomnia, muscle spasm, convulsions and skin disease.[3] Since the 1970s Coleus has been the subject of extensive research, due to the fact that forskolin isolated from the roots was found to have some incredible therapeutic effects.[3] In 1974 research carried out by Hoechst Pharmaceuticals and the Indian Central Drug Research Institute in a search for sources of new drugs in the medicinal plant world, found that extracts of Coleus root reduced muscle spasms and lowered blood pressure.
They were led to the plant as it is related to Coleus amboinicus, a herb used in Ayurvedic medicine for colic, asthma, chronic coughs, calculus, strangury, epilepsy, fevers, convulsions, piles and dyspepsia. The fresh juice was applied round the eye to relieve conjunctivitis.[4] On further investigation, the chemical component known as forskolin was isolated from Coleus forskohlii, and thought to be responsible for these actions. Forskolin has now become available as a prescription drug and a supplement and is recommended in the treatment of hypothyroidism, allergies, asthma, eczema, psoriasis, obesity, glaucoma and for conditions associated with muscle spasm including spastic colon, hypertension, angina and bladder pain.[3]

Further studies have revealed that the main action behind the effects of forskolin is the activation of an important enzyme that raises levels of cyclic adenosine monophosphate, (cAMP). CAMP is a very important cell-regulating compound which acts as a 'second messenger' altering a variety of membrane transport proteins and thereby activating many other enzymes involved in a whole range of cellular functions including hormone activation. By increasing cAMP, forskolin has been shown to have a wide array of benefits particularly in the circulatory system, the respiratory tract, the digestive system, the immune system, the skin and eyes.

In the circulatory system forskolin inhibits platelet activity, decreasing the risk of blood clotting; it increases the force of the contraction of heart muscle thereby improving heart function, making it worth using it for patients with angina and congestive heart failure. By relaxing arteries and other smooth muscle, it can help to lower blood pressure by dilating blood vessels.[3]

It has an immunomodulatory effect, activating macrophages and lymphocytes. As a potent platelet aggregation inhibitor it has been found to inhibit the melanoma-induced platelet aggregation, and tumor colonization, suggesting that Coleus could be a useful herb in the management of cancer by inhibiting tumor metastases.[5]

Coleus has great potential in the treatment of allergies because allergic conditions such as asthma, eczema, and hay fever are associated with low cAMP and high platelet activating factor (PAF) levels. Forskolin reduces histamine release and has been shown to inhibit production of substances that trigger the inflammatory response. It is recommended for treating inflammatory skin problems including eczema and can also be helpful in
psoriasis, which seems to be partly related to the low levels of cAMP in skin cells [2,3]. It is potentially an excellent herb for treating asthma through its antihistamine action and its antispasmodic action on smooth muscle, giving it a bronchodilatory effect. Many drugs used for asthma apparently increase cAMP by inhibiting enzymes that break it down. So Coleus could be useful when weaning patients off conventional asthma treatments.

The relaxing effect of forskolin on smooth muscle means that Coleus can be used to treat conditions such as muscle tension and cramp, convulsions, muscle cramping and bladder pain.[3] It is used for colic caused by spasm in the GI tract and also has the ability to enhance secretion of digestive enzymes and promote good digestion.

Forskolin has also been shown to stimulate the release of thyroid hormone, relieving many symptoms associated with hypothyroidism, such as depression, fatigue, weight gain and dry skin. [3] It increases fat metabolism and insulin production, and improves energy. It has become a popular remedy for helping in the management of obesity. Interestingly obese people tend to have low levels of cAMP. By improving neurotransmitter function it may be useful in relieving depression.

Papaya Fruit Extract

At dermaxime.com they say the following about Papaya:  Most people know papaya as a tropical fruit, yet are clueless about the wonderful effects it can have on the skin - assisting with wound healing and healing to clear up skin problems. This fruit contains the enzyme papain, which has wonderful exfoliating properties - removing dead skin, and specifically damaged skin. REF 505 & 506  This particular property of papaya has extensively been used in medical conditions to debribe the skin from abnormal skin growth and skin diseases. Not only does it have great antibacterial and wound healing abilities REF 511 but is also extensively used in wound care REF 512 & 513 and is of particular help in removing damaged and dead skin. REF 514 - 516

http://www.dermaxime.com/papaya.htm 

 

ehow.com states the following:  "The enzyme papain not only helps internal functions, placement on the skin overnight has also been known to help some skin disorders. The same protein-dissolving enzymes that soothe indigestion can also dissolve unwanted skin growths,"

http://www.ehow.com/about_5114512_benefits-papaya-extract.html

 

At carensblog.com the following is offered:

"Papaya is also beneficial to skin care and repair and is an effective and nonabrasive exfoliant. The green papaya contains an enzyme called papain that helps to remove impurities and dead skin cells. You'll find papaya extract in Skin's Fruity Face facial scrub, giving the scrub a boost of effectiveness like a mini, all-natural facial peel. Or make your own facial treatment in your kitchen.  Mashed papaya flesh makes a great facial mask or the inside of the papaya skin can be applied directly to the skin. Papaya is excellent in helping to reduce the signs of premature aging. Regular use can even help to fade acne marks and sun damage. Said to speed up the healing process, papaya is also used in the treatment of cuts, rashes, stings and burns. The active ingredient, papain, is found in the leaf as well as the fruit. Papaya leaf extract is sometimes referred to as the "biological scalpal" for its ability to attack dead skin cells and leave alone the living ones. No need to restrict its wonderful skin benefits to the face. Alaffia's Mango Citrus body lotion's main ingredient is papaya leaf, making it perfect for eliminating dry, scaly skin cells."

Sea Minerals

Much is being said about the benefits of Sea Salt these days, and companies are rushing to include Unprocessed Sea Salt in their cosmetic and food products.  SeaBoost Cream uses a liquid sea salt in which approximately 99% of the sodium has been removed, without removing the rich array of micro-nutrients.  This is yet another reason that SeaBoost Cream nourishes your skin with each application.  Our Ionic Sea Minerals possess all 90 natural elements in the Periodic Chart of Elements:  http://www.ag-usa.net/OT,%20Ocean%20water%20elements.htm

 

healthfree.com makes the following observations:  "Trace elements, found in minute quantities in sea water and therefore in natural unrefined sea salt, seem to absent in an Organic Health regime but they all work together to assure and maintain proper function of the body's systems. If any one of them is left out -or even just diminished- a link will be missing, and the whole organism will suffer as a result. Stated another way, if any of our internal oceans are shortchanged of trace nutrients, the body will lack the triggering bio-electrical impulses and the mineral building blocks necessary to function at full efficiency or to renew its systems properly."

"Humans need whole, clean ocean salt; medical and biological facts support that. Genuinely healthful sea salt is composed of minerals from the ocean waters which have been transformed by microorganisms, algae and plants into organic nutrients; these in turn are bioavailable to animals of the sea and land.  The ocean contains the precious minerals our body requires for optimum function."

Benefits of Sea Salt

By Jill Turpin, http://www.deskjockeyfitness.com/Articles/NL0604/Jill.html

Sea salt is beneficial to the skin. Skin absorbs sea salts, vitamins and any other substances it comes into contact with. It is universally accepted that sea salts can have a wonderful effect on circulation and metabolism.  Sea salts contain many minerals beneficial to the body. Magnesium is important for both combating stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging and calming the nervous system. Calcium is effective at preventing water retention, increasing circulation and strengthening bones and nails. Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish after intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for lymphatic fluid balance (this is important for the immune system).

 

tjclark.com proposes benefits of the following minerals found in SeaBoost Cream.  http://www.tjclark.com.au/colloidal-minerals-library/mineral-functions.htm

 

Mineral Functions in the Body

 

Ionic Sea Minerals contain all of the following minerals.

 

Arsenic is essential in trace amounts. Arsenic deficiency depresses growth and impairs reproduction.

Boron appears to affect calcium and magnesium metabolism and membrane function. It is essential for efficient absorption of calcium in the body and was found by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to significantly reduce the loss of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in post-menopausal women. It may also be helpful for ischemic heart disease and other forms of cardiovascular disease. Boron deficiency signs may be related to the level of vitamin D and possibly other nutrients in the diet.
Deficiency Symptoms: Osteoporosis, Arthritis.

Calcium is an essential chemical element largely concerned with the structure and rigidity of bones and teeth; a small portion is involved in blood clotting, transmission of impulses from nerve to muscles, and regulation of the parathyroid gland. The 1% of the body's calcium circulating in body fluids maintains correct acid-alkaline balance and regulates the heartbeat amongst other vital functions. Lack of calcium in the diet leads to a form of "leaching out" of bone mineral content (osteoporosis) and when vitamin D is also deficient, the condition known as rickets occurs.

Chlorine (chloride) is essential in maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance which in turn enables nutrients to pass into cells and waste products to pass out of cells. It is a necessary component of gastric juices required for digestion of protein and minerals. Deficiency of chlorine can cause hair and tooth loss, poor muscular contraction and impaired digestion.

Chromium is required for normal glucose absorption. It appears to increase the effectiveness of insulin and its ability to regulate blood sugar levels. It may also be involved in protein synthesis. It is best absorbed when taken in compounds (complexes). In the majority of all chromium supplementation studies in the United States, at least half the subjects with impaired glucose tolerance improved with the addition of chromium, suggesting that the lower ranges of chromium intake from typical U.S. diets are not optimal with regard to chromium nutrition.

Cobalt is an integral part of vitamin B-12. Because all vitamin B-12 is derived from bacterial synthesis, organic cobalt is considered essential. Deficiency of cobalt may lead to pernicious anemia, retarded growth and nervous disorders. Vegetarians are particularly at risk of deficiency.

Copper is an essential nutrient for all vertebrates. There are a number of copper-containing proteins and enzymes, some of which are essential for the proper utilization of iron. Copper is involved in respiration and is an important blood antioxidant. It is also involved in protein metabolism, healing processes, maintenance of hair color, and formation of the myelin sheaths which protect nerve fibers. Elevated cholesterol levels, impaired glucose tolerance, anemia and heart-related abnormalities have been observed in some subjects with below-average copper consumption.

Fluorine (fluoride) The major tissues known to incorporate fluoride are bones and tooth enamel. Fluorine appears to increase deposition of calcium, thereby strengthening teeth and bones. Levels in drinking water artificially fluoridated with sodium fluoride can often reach toxic levels which then has adverse effect on many enzyme systems in the body Just like so called toxic metals like aluminum, chromium and arsenic are poisonous in the inorganic chemical form, but safe and even essential in their natural plant form.

Gallium modulates brain chemistry. Anti-tumor activity.

Iodine is unevenly distributed in the environment. In large areas, often mountainous, environmental levels are inadequate for humans and animals. Iodine is especially important for the thyroid gland which regulates the body's production of energy and metabolic rate, and is involved in the conversion of carotene to vitamin A, in protein synthesis and in synthesis of cholesterol, which is the building block for hormones. Deficiency of iodine can result in goiter (enlarged thyroid) and hypothyroidism (which in turn leads to weight gain, dry skin and hair, sensitivity to cold, sluggish metabolism, slowed mental reactions and hardening of the arteries). Deficiency has also been linked to breast lumps.

Iron is a constituent of hemoglobin, the component of blood which carries oxygen to every cell in the body; myoglobin, which supplies oxygen to muscle cells; and a number of enzymes. There are reports of reduced physical performance in iron deficiency even before anemia is present. Iron deficiency also has been associated with decreased immune function.

Lithium reduces aggressiveness, violence and self-destruction.

Magnesium is important to calcium and potassium homeostasis. Numerous biochemical and physiological processes require or are modulated by magnesium, including energy production, protein synthesis, muscle contractions and vascular tone. Extra-cellular magnesium concentrations are critical to the maintenance of electrical potentials of nerve and muscle membranes and for transmission of impulses across neuromuscular junctions. Magnesium deficiency is common since this mineral is refined out out of many foods during processing. Deficiencies have been associated with coronary heart disease, formation of clots in the heart and brain, calcium deposits in kidneys, blood vessels and heart, digestive disorders, depression and many other symptoms.

Manganese is an antioxidant, activates numerous enzymes and has roles in protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism. It is necessary for blood sugar regulation, healthy nerves and brain, sex hormone production, normal skeletal development, production of mother's milk and a healthy immune system. Signs of deficiency include poor reproductive performance, growth retardation, congenital malformations in the offspring, abnormal formation of bone and cartilage, and impaired glucose tolerance. Manganese supplementation has been found useful in treating multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis and diabetes.

Molybdenum plays an essential role in several enzymes including xanthine oxidase which aids in mobilizing iron from liver reserves; aldehyde oxidase which is necessary for oxidation of fats and sulphite oxidase. It modulates metabolism of calcium, magnesium, copper and nitrogen and may also be an antioxidant. Deficiencies can result from excess sulphites (common preservative of foods and drugs) or from refining of foods. Consequences of molybdenum deficiency include retarded weight gain, poor appetite, impaired reproduction, fast heartbeat, increased rate of breathing, visual problems and shortened life expectancy.  

Nickel is another element which has been shown by substantial evidence to be necessary in trace amounts. It is involved in hormone, lipid and membrane metabolism and cell membrane integrity and is an activator for some enzymes. Lowers requirement for vitamin B12. Nickel deficiency results in decreased growth, impaired liver function, changes in skin color and reproductive problems.

Phosphorus is an essential component of bone mineral and needs to be in correct balance with calcium for both of these minerals to be used effectively in the body. It also plays a role in almost every chemical reaction in the body. Phosphorus deficiency results in bone loss and is characterized by weakness, anorexia, malaise, and pain. Deficiency in the calcium-phosphorus balance may result in conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, pyorrhea, rickets and tooth decay.

Potassium is an important electrolyte in the body which is intimately associated with sodium metabolism. In the correct ratio, sodium and potassium help regulate water balance within the body; are essential for the transport of nutrients into each cell and waste products out of each cell and help normalize the heartbeat. Deficiency of potassium may lead to nervous disorders, insomnia, constipation, slow irregular heartbeat and muscle damage. In severe potassium deficiency, muscle weakness and paralysis may develop, leading to difficulties in breathing and changes in the heart.

Selenium is an antioxidant that works closely with vitamin E in actions like production of antibodies, binding of toxic metals like mercury, amino acid metabolism and promotion of normal body growth and fertility. Selenium protects the cell "machinery" that generates energy. It is also necessary for the production of prostaglandins, substances which affect blood pressure and platelet aggregation. It protects all membranes, reduces risk of cancer, enhances immune system, protects against heart disease. Deficiency of selenium has been associated with premature aging, heart attack, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, infertility and increased risk of cancer.

Silicon also falls in the "trace requirement" category. It is needed for the connective tissues of the body such as tendons, cartilage, blood vessels, nails, skin and hair. It works with calcium to make strong bones so it is an important factor in osteoporosis and can help with faster mending of broken bones. It has been found helpful for preventing cardiovascular disease. It is probably best known as the "beauty mineral" for helping maintain strong, healthy nails, hair and skin. Silicon deficiency first shows as brittle or easily broken nails and dry, splitting hair, and can eventually lead to structural abnormalities of the long bones and the skull.

Sodium is an essential mineral that plays a critical role in normal electrolyte metabolism. It works with potassium to equalise acid-alkaline balance of the blood and water balance in the body and well as transport of nutrients into and waste products out of body cells, muscle contraction and nerve stimulation. Sodium also keeps other minerals in the blood soluble so they will not build up as deposits in the bloodstream. It is necessary for the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach for digestion of protein and minerals and helps in the elimination of carbon dioxide from the body. Excessive fatigue, muscle cramps and weakness, intestinal gas, arthritis, rheumatism, neuralgia short attention span, and mental confusion can result from sodium deficiency.

Tin supports hair growth and can enhance reflexes. Deficiency symptoms include symmetrical baldness, reduced response to sound and loud noises and diminished hemoglobin synthesis.
