New Skin Care Line Feeds Nutrients To The Skin Instead Of Toxic Chemicals
With 100% natural African shea butter and equally natural essential oils, Synergistic Living finds no need for synthetic chemicals. Raw shea butter alone has considerable healing power, without introducing potential toxins into the body.
The public has a growing awareness of this "toxic chemical" problem. Recent news reports have catalogued a litany of chemicals in personal care products, many with demonstrated toxicity. Up to 60% of these toxins are absorbed through the skin into the body. Dozens of these chemicals have been found both in the blood and in body tissues, and even in newborn infants after in-utero exposure.
The toxic substances in skin care products include chemicals such as ammonium laureth sulphate, benzene, and the glycols (propylene, ethylene and diethylene, found in most skin and hand creams), along with thousands of other toxins. It's been estimated that 60% of the 10,000 or more chemicals found in skin care products are toxic.
Shea Butter is a fatty substance extracted from the nut of the African karite tree. It contains some of the most effective moisturizers found in nature, similar in composition to the sebum produced by our own sebaceous glands. While coconut oil and cocoa butter are also intensely moisturizing, shea nut butter has the advantage of being non-comedogenic, meaning it doesn't clog pores or promote acne. (Coconut oil and cocoa butter both have comedogenic ratings of 4 on a scale of 5, whereas shea butter has a comedogenic rating of zero.)
Shea butter penetrates all layers of the skin rapidly, providing deep and lasting hydration and maintenance of the skin's barrier function.
Another advantage of shea butter over other natural oils is its very large healing fraction (much larger than any other seed oil), containing at least eight identified anti-inflammatory compounds. From a 2010 paper published in The Journal of Oleo Sciences: "The biological activities of triterpene acetate and cinnamate esters, together with the exceptionally high levels of these triterpenes in shea fat, indicate that shea nuts and shea fat (shea butter) constitute a significant source of anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor promoting compounds."
Shea butter also contains a large collection of other nutrients, including vitamins, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients. All of these work synergistically to protect the skin and heal a variety of skin conditions.
Refining shea butter removes a large portion of the nutrients, and with them the healing power. Therefore, Synergistic Living has formulated its entire Shea ScentSations product line with raw, unrefined shea butter.
For their additional therapeutic value and their wonderful aromas, the Shea ScentSations line includes scent variations that blend essential oils with shea butter.
A customer writing a review of Shea ScentSations' shea butter, posted on Amazon.com, said this:
"My skin had become so sensitive that even my dermatologist had run out of suggestions for products. Every moisturizer or cream that I used would burn like fire for a few minutes after I applied it. My Shea Butter does not burn at all. It soothes my skin, and the effect lasts so that when I apply my makeup it doesn't sting either. I love the way it feels on my hands, arms and legs. The effect is amazingly long lasting. I think my quest for a skin cream has come to an end! Thank you, Synergistic Living. And just a note: This company provides the greatest customer service ever! They were so gracious to me and so generous in helping me solving a problem I had with my choice of creams. I will definitely be a repeat customer."
All Shea ScentSation products currently come in 16 ounce jars, and the entire product line is sold on Amazon.com.
