Cotton…in a skin care product? If you’re thinking cotton was just something for t-shirts and padding, prepare to be dazzled. It’s actually being used a lot on skin care because of its valuable properties. Cotton is high in vitamin E, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, which are all anti-inflammatory, helping to soothe skin and calm redness.
According to LiveStrong, cotton seed oil provides a lasting, thick lather when used in soap, report soap makers at Saratoga Scents. Cotton seed oil also has emollient properties that can smooth and soften rough skin. Soap-makers recommend using soap that contains no more than 25 percent cotton seed oil because of its tendency to spoil. Like other oils used in soaps, cotton seed oil can leave skin soft and silky, report cosmeticians at Skin Care Tips.
Cotton seed is an inexpensive additive that can be added to soap to provide lather and oil, so it often provides a good option for those looking for inexpensive beauty products. Cotton seed, however, can contain high levels of pesticides if not treated sufficiently, and can cause skin irritation. Cotton seed oil often is found in all-natural products at health food stores and should not be used by people with sensitive skin.
Carita Ideal Cotton Cream is a wonderfully versatile skin cream which balances, soothes and comforts the skin. Restructured and stronger, the skin is less sensitive and ages less quickly. This makes it perfect with anyone with sensitive skin, blemishes or scars. We have also found it incredibly effective on mature skin or anyone who wants to slow down the march of time a little on their complexion.
The cotton cells make the skin less sensitive. The protectine, stemming from samphire, helps to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier. Sumptuous and light, this soothing cream reduces redness and calms sensations of discomfort.
