Aloe Vera Hydrating Skin Cream

The Nuns make a creamy skin lotion using Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe Vera Juice, Beeswax, Grapefruit Seed Oil, and Tea Tree Oil.  All ingredients are natural, no  perfumes or dyes are used.

Aloe Vera helps your skin retain moisture. It adds natural hydration and helps your skin feel plump, smooth and youthful — particularly if you have dry skin.

Coconut oil has a long history of use in dermatology and cosmetics, dating back to ancient times. It is a good moisturizer as it has powerful emollient properties which lends itself to skin hydration.

Almond oil is rich in vitamins A, D, E and minerals Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium and Zinc. It has a balanced fatty acid composition, and contains up to 30% of linoleic acid—an omega-6 essential fatty acid that results in better moisture retention, which is key to maintaining supple, healthy skin. Almond oil is both a moisturizer which provides hydration and an emollient which smooths the skin. It is non-irritating and light, and is safe for sensitive skin. Almond oil has been used medicinally for millennia to treat uncomfortable skin conditions and often provides relief from burning, stinging, red and itchy skin. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties and can help reduce redness and inflammation. When used as a face moisturizer, due to its emollient properties it is known to improve complexion and skin tone.  Do not use this product if you are allergic to nuts.

Shea butter is rich in vitamins A and E and is extremely moisturizing and hydrates your skin, leaving it soft and smooth.

Beeswax helps keep your skin soft and hydrated as it is a humectant, which means that it attracts water. It is also a natural exfoliator, ideal for sloughing away dead skin cells.  

We use trace amounts of Grapefruit Seed oil and Tea Tree oil. Grapefruit Seed oil is a natural fungicide and has antibacterial properties which promote good skin health and healing. Tea Tree oil helps to take away the redness and inflammation as it has anti-inflammatory properties. It won't irritate your skin or dry it out and will also help heal your skin.  

Gently massage Aloe Vera Hydrating Skin Cream into your skin and give it a few minutes to absorb and replenish you skins natural oils.  Soon your skin will feel soft and supple.
