ARMOR Eczema Relief Balm Oil Base: EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL is a skin care treatment that gives you healthy, glowing, and even-toned skin. Olive oil for skin care has been used by ancient civilizations and is still widely used in the Mediterranean and Middle East. So it is time to dispel the ugly rumors that all oil is bad for the skin and learn some of the skin benefits that olive oil has to offer.
Extra virgin olive oil is the best for skin care application because it comes from the first (extra virgin) cold press, retaining almost all of the fruit's nutritional and antioxidant benefits.
We use Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Armor because it helps dry skin. Whether it is a year-long battle or only plagues of dry skin during the fall and winter, it is a natural skin softener and moisturizer. Beyond that, one of the surprising olive oil benefits is that is acts as a sealant. What this means is olive oil not only moisturizes and softens, but it helps the skin retain moisture as well which is essential for those who suffer with Eczema.
Coconut Oil: benefits skin tissue by receiving high levels of antioxidants. Coconut oil also promotes the aging process by combating free radical levels. In addition, a natural derivative of coconut oil is Vitamin E. This vitamin strengthens skin tissue while retaining optimum condition. The antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties in coconut oil (lauric and caprylic acid) ward off skin infections.
Healing Oils: The soothing and anti-inflammatory power of Vitamin E, a nourishing vitamin, along with the potency of Elderberry Extract and the Calendula Flower Extract, which gives your skin the antioxidants, anti-bacterial and moisturizing qualities it needs for healthy and happy skin—eczema and psoriasis free. Eczema, an itchy skin condition generally thought to be the result of an overactive immune system, needs nourishing care—from the inside and out. Seventy-five percent of all toxins are detoxified through our largest organ, the skin. When our inner systems become overactive, it leads to external inflammation, hardening and dry skin. When we are unable to release toxins from the inside, eczema on the outside becomes worse. Healing the skin tissue allows toxins to escape.
