Herbal Amy is making the cream with Goat's Milk. Goat's milk has unique nourishing properties that make it the perfect ingredient to add to anything that touches your skin. Goat milk is enriched with huge amounts of protein, fat, iron, vitamin A, B6, B12, C, D, E, copper and selenium. These beneficial nutrients will help replenish and pamper skin gently. The vitamins it contains also means that goat milk has some anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce acne redness*. It has anti-bacterial properties which stunt the growth of pimple-forming bacteria in your pores*. Goat milk soap is wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It is both an anti-aging wonder and a lifesaver for dry and sensitive skin.
Herbal Amy now infuses Botanical Blend (Taraxacum officinale) and Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) in her combination skin health promoting oils. These oils are known for maintaining healthy skin. This new formula goes on smoother and provides more beneficial herbal properties than the original formula.
Herb 1 is known for being antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and has antibacterial properties making it useful in healing wounds, soothing eczema, and relieving acne*.
Herb 2 can be used to speed healing and reduce inflammation of acne*. Four grams of echinacea has roughly the same anti-inflammatory effects as 100mg of cortisone. In addition, echinacea based cream can be used to protect acne-damaged skin against sun damage*.
Herb 3 has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties that make it very effective in neutralizing acne causing bacteria in the skin*.
Witch Hazel leaves, twigs, and bark are used for their astringent, soothing properties, attributes which make it useful for helping reduce inflammation and tone injured tissue, speeding up the healing process*.
Zinc oxide can help by calming this inflammation and further protecting skin*. It helps soothe redness, decrease the size of breakouts/pimples/cysts – and helps to dry out oil production*. Its main job is as a skin protectant and acne prevention*. Zinc oxide also acts as a sun screen.
β-Caryophyllene from Copaiba Oil is said to activate the CB2 receptor and is a potential therapeutic strategy for inflammation, pain, atherosclerosis, and osteoporosis. The activation of CB2 receptors has been found to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems. CB2 receptors are also found in the brain and as such β-Caryophyllene may be neuro-protective in a similar fashion as CBD. We look forward to additional research to be performed here in the US. Chromatographic studies showed that the main compound among sesquiterpenes was β-caryophyllene (57.5%), followed by α-humulene, α-copaene, α-bergamotene, δ-cadinene.... all extracted from the Copaiba resin.
Properties of Copaiba oil.
These are actually the effects which it produces upon consumption, or application.
