Almond oil forms the base of this cuticle balm. Since this carrier oil is a moderately light oil, it doesn’t leave the hands feeling so greasy after application. It’s rich in vitamin E, oleic acid, and linoleic acid and is a power emollient to retain moisture around the nail area.
Vitamin E oil has been proven in dermatological studies to improve nail growth and contribute to a healthier nail color.
Jojoba Oil. is technically a liquid wax that closely mimics sebum, an oily, waxy substance that protects the skin. In addition jojoba draws moisture to the skin and helps the production of the acid mantle that protects skin from harmful bacteria.
Helichrysum oil adds a pleasant scent and contribute to the cream’s soothing properties. Helichrysum is a more expensive essential oil, but well worth having in any natural medicine cabinet. Some have nicknamed it “liquid stitches” because it heals damaged skin so quickly. It’s also naturally antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.
Citrus essential oils soften the cuticle and help the vitamins and nutrients from the other oils better penetrate the skin. The lemon essential oil significantly increased both water soluble and oil soluble vitamin absorption by the skin. They also found it increased vitamin E absorption by nine times.
