Not All Balms Are Created Equal

Posted by Pauline Prescott on

It’s widely known that facial balms made with oils benefit our skin and help to keep it supple and moisturised, however not all oils are created equal and those included in Tri-Balm’s formulation have been selected for their high potency and specific healing and nourishing qualities. There has been no time or expense spared to ensure that we created a facial balm that is full of skin benefiting nutrients ……I like to call it topical nutrition for your skin. Let’s have a look at some of the botanical oils we included that really pack a punch…

Firstly Seaweed Oily Extract includes a potent mix of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants. The antioxidants in seaweed help prevent free radical damage to the skin and protect against skin ageing. Any products promoting Antioxidants are offering anti-ageing benefits and we all need to be using as many antioxidant rich ingredients in our skin care as we possibly can.

Wheatgerm Oil is readily absorbed by your skin, which makes it an effective moisturiser. When applied wheatgerm oil which has 21 skin enhancing benefits including a healthy infusion of vitamin A, vitamin D, B vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids. These nutrients help moisturise and help heal dry or cracked skin. Wheatgerm oil also contains a rich source of vitamin E, which helps reduce skin damage, fight free radicals, support healthy collagen formation and maintain even skin tone. Again lots of anti-ageing benefits can be drawn from this miracle oil when its applied to the skin.

Poppy Seed Oil improves the skin penetration of other oils. It sinks into the skin very quickly leaving no residue and young skin benefits from the rich supply of antioxidants protecting the skin from free radical damage. This is of course a major benefit to mature skin as well and it has a strong effect that revitalises tired looking skin.

Apricot Kernel Oil, rich in the essential fatty acids, oleic and linoleic acid, and known for its ability to penetrate the skin without leaving an oily feel. An ideal oil for thirsty dry skin.

Olive Squalane is a fine non greasy blend of Olive derived emollients that give skin an amazingly soft feel and a natural bloom, and also helps to reduce moisture loss by strengthening the skin's natural barrier function. Despite being an oil, it's lightweight and noncomedogenic, meaning it won't clog your pores. It improves skin cellular level and its anti-inflammatory properties reduce redness and swelling.

Oat E Lipid, a natural lipid complex extracted from the oat kernel with naturally occurring antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant properties makes it an excellent choice for anti-ageing serums and anti-allergenic creams and ointments.Oat Lipids are incredibly healing and soothing to the skin and so we included Oat lipids in Tribalm for that reason.

Rice Bran Oil, rich in Vitamin E and fatty acids, deeply penetrates into the skin, nourishing it from within, making it very soft and velvety. It also helps it improve skin's elasticity, making it appear more youthful and plump. Rice bran has been used for centuries in Japan as a key ingredient in cleansers, masks, toners, and bathing powders to keep skin smooth and supple. It effectively reduces signs of ageing while soothing, hydrating, and protecting the skin, simultaneously cleansing, softening, moisturising, nourishing and smoothing the skin. It slows the look of ageing and brightens the complexion and also protects the barrier function of the skin.

Soline Bio is an oil-based active ingredient made of organic sunflower seed oil. After a single application, it provides immediate and long-lasting hydration that lasts over 24 hours. Soline Bio is a lipid-replenishing moisturiser that boosts ceramides and cerebrosides. Ideal for all skin types but especially for mature skin or dry or dehydrated skin.

Mandarin Essential Oil in skincare gives you that fresh, tangy scent that is perfect for waking you up in the morning, plus it also has antibacterial and toning and firming properties that help revitalise and awaken skin. Even the essential oils have been chosen for their skin care benefits.

Geranium Essential Oil has been shown to decrease sebum production and return the skin to a normal balance, as well as its function as an astringent, which makes the skin, tissues, and blood vessels contract. Thus, geranium oil used alone or as an ingredient in skin care products can prevent sagging, loose skin. Moreover, its astringent benefits can help prevent wrinkles from forming. The inclusion of Geranium oil makes this balm an excellent cleanser for teenage skin that needs help regulating sebum production or for oils skin that could benefit from a normal sebum balance.

Rapeseed Oil successfully treats redness and irritation of the skin caused by conditions such as acne and eczema. Extremely effective as an antioxidant able to protect skin from the damaging effects of the environment and pollution.

Borage Oil or starflower oil as it is commonly known is a little-known secret for keeping your skin healthy. It is a natural oil that not only restores moisture and smoothness to dry and damaged skin but also provides relief to people who suffer from chronic skin disorders such as eczema and atopic dermatitis.

Abyssinian Oil, last but by no means least is a botanical which offers some outstanding and unique properties. It is hydrating and protective, with a velvety, non-greasy texture; an active lubricant and emollient and natural alternative to mineral oils and silicones, promoting soft skin and a protective barrier to prevent skin dryness. It has a molecular structure not found in any other plant oil and is very resistant to oxidation, unlike many plant oils, and contains a high percentage of omega fatty acids. It promotes skin softness, plumpness, and is naturally anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory, and as such is excellent for soothing and calming red, irritated and sensitive skin. It reinforces the skin’s protective barrier, preventing dehydration, and adds radiance to a dull complexion, instantly giving the skin a more revitalised, youthful complexion.

So, choosing the right product for your skin needn’t be difficult. With Tri-Balm we have done the hard work for you by including the very best and most powerful oils full of natural goodness to cover all bases and skin types. Used as a cleanser, moisturiser and moistening face mask, this mighty miracle compact multitasking facial balm really does it all.
