-A Word about Argan Oil-

Argan oil is advocated as moisturizing oil in the treatment of wrinkled or scaly dry skin

This oil also has medicinal uses against rheumatism and the healing of burns.

Social Impact

Much of the argan oil produced today is made by a number of women's co-operatives. Employment in the co-operatives provides women with an income, which many have used to fund education for themselves or their children. It has also provided them with a degree of autonomy in a traditionally male-dominated society and has helped many become more aware of their rights.

Funding has enabled technical support for the production and marketing of argan oil and for technical, professional and personal development of the women involved in the co-operatives.



‘Essentia’ Ingredients Details

Glyceryl Stearate

Glyceryl Stearate is derived from palm kernel oil and is also found naturally in the human body. It acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It easily penetrates the skin and slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. It has been shown to protect skin from free-radical damage as well.  Chemically, Glyceryl Stearate is used to stabilize products, decrease water evaporation, make products freeze-resistant, and keep them from forming surface crusts.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera)

The Aloe barbadensis leaf, or aloe vera as it is more commonly known, can be crushed down to form a liquid. This liquid is called aloe juice. The aloe plant has long been regaled for its medicinal properties, and the juice that comes from its leaves known to soothe and help speed healing of a variety of conditions and ailments.

Stearic Acid

Stearic Acid - is produced from palm oil. It is used to help bind and thicken lotions and creams.

 

Helianthus Annus seed oil (Sunflower Seed Oil)

Sunflower seed (Helianthus annuus) oil is one of several plant-derived emollients that mimic the lipid, or fat, content of the skin. This delicately textured oil helps stabilize and maintain the structure of the skin's complex inter-cellular matrix, preventing moisture loss and cell damage, and promoting skin with a soft, smooth, healthy appearance.

Cetyl Alcohol

Cetyl alcohol locks moisture into the skin and forms a protective barrier that water can't penetrate, preventing dry and parched skin.

Panthenol (Vitamin B5)

Panthenol cream, also known as vitamin B5, is highly soluble and can easily be absorbed into the skin. Panthenol cream helps skin maintain natural moisture balance, keeps the skin smooth, reduces inflammation and irritation and can even counteract surface bacteria.

In some cases, panthenol is used in medications that treat skin disorders and afflictions. The skin afflictions could range from eczema to the treatment of scar damage. Unlike many other ingredients that have a range of side effects, panthenol doesn’t have any negative side effects.

Panthenol cream is essentially vitamin B5, so if the body receives it in excess, it will simply be released as waste. When panthenol penetrates and absorbs into the skin as a moisturizer the ingredient is converted into pantothenic acid, which is a B complex vitamin.

Simmondsia Chinensis seed oil (Jojoba Seed Oil)

Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil) acts as a moisturizer and emollient agent to improve the skin elasticity and suppleness, containing natural tocopherols to minimize oxidation and lipid peroxidation.

Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil)

Sweet almond oil is extracted from the dried kernels of sweet almonds. Sweet almond oil is extracted from the fruit of the almond tree, rich in nutrients such as Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6 and extremely rich in vitamin E.  A good moisturizer for all skin types, simply because it is easily absorbed. One of the most important sweet almond oil benefits is that for dry and chapped skin. Using sweet almond oil will surely make your skin soft and supple. If your skin is itchy or inflamed, you could apply this oil to ease your discomfort. Applying sweet almond oil is a natural beauty treatment. You can use almond oil for dark circles. It will also rehydrate the skin and reduce the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Almond oil massage will help to get rid of dry skin, wrinkles, impurities, dead cells. It soaks easily in the skin and gives a glowing touch to it. The benefits from using sweet almond oil include reducing discoloration on the skin, adding moisture to chapped or chafed skin and lips, improves the overall complexion and prevents dry or flaking skin. Since almond oil features vitamin E, it also helps to reduce inflammation and irritation of the skin. Improves complexion and retains glow.

Hyaluronic Acid

This acid is often termed as the “key to the fountain of youth” as it has the ability to enhance the appearance of dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness.  In the skin, the hyaluronic acid sits in between collagen and elastic fibers so that your skin looks firmer, youthful and even more radiant.

Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E)

Tocopherol Acetate, or vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin is a naturally occurring antioxidant.

Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil (Argan Oil)

Argan oil helps in reducing the wrinkles and softening the skin. It has also shown to increase the elasticity and tightening of the skin. Benefits of argan oil for skin include regeneration of the skin by revitalizing the cell functions that prevent early skin aging due to sun, pollution and stress.

Argan oil has a sebum regulating action on the oily skin that reduces the oiliness. Argan oil health benefits for the skin include reduction of skin irritation and inflammation. If you are suffering from acne or chicken pox scars, application of argan oil has been known to reduce these blemishes. Pregnant women can apply argan oil to prevent the onset of stretch marks. Argan oil is also known to hydrate the skin, neutralize free radicals, treat acne, eczema and psoriasis.

The argan oil used in ‘Essentia’ comes from Morocco.

Ethyl Macadamiate

Ethyl macadamiate is a plant-derived (from macademia oil) alternative to synthetic silicones. It is especially non-greasy and non-sticky with excellent spreadability. It helps make the skin feel soft and healthy.

Glycerin

Glycerin is a humectant: it has the ability to draw water from the environment and the dermis (the lower layers of skin) into the outer (surface) layers of the skin. It also helps keep the skin’s natural barrier intact. Because of this, Glycerin helps keep skin moisturized and soft, preventing dryness.


Phenoxyethanol

Phenoxyethanol is an organic chemical compound.  It is a preservative.  The activity of the phenoxyethanol retards microbial growth.  It is effective in inactivating challenge doses of gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms as well as yeast.

Ultra Pure Water

Our blending, packaging & quality control plant is in Illinois.

The water system in our plant is very sophisticated. It is free from organic and inorganic particulate and soluble contaminants.  It is treated with UV irradiation for sterilization.

Sodium Hydroxide

Sodium Hydroxide is used to adjust and hold a neutral pH.

Essentia
Anna Burrill (Middletown, RI) 1/17/2013 7:57 AM
This cream is amazing. I have rosacea; creams often irritate my skin or do not provide enough moisture. Essentia hydrates my skin and is fully absorbed. I live in a climate with high winds and cold weather, so creams have to protect and saturate my skin; Essentia does both. I am a proud and true Essentia user.

I live in a dry climate and am in an industry where I have to continually wash and sanitize my hands making my skin dry much of the time. I have tried almost every hand lotion on the market. This all natural creme is great!!! Very light, not greasy, easily absorbed and I am hooked! I keep some in my desk and in my car so I have it with me always!! I will definitely recommend to all my friends. Thanks for a great product MADE IN THE USA.

I Love this product. My skin seems to just drink it in! No sticky or greasy feel, just soft skin. When they say fragrance free, they mean it. I love that there is no animal testing and that all the products are natural. I was reluctant to use it on my face but once I did I really liked the supple soft feel of my skin. Now I use it all the time, No more $100+ face creams for me.

Essentia - thank you
Sandra Rempert (Johnsburg, IL) 12/2/2012 3:30 AM
During the last 6 months I've spent more time flat on my back, in a hospital bed, due to major back surgery, than I care to think about. The result is dry sensitive skin; and an ongoing quest to prevent bed sores. When my doctor decided I was strong enough to begin my chemo treatment of Xeloda there was the added irritation of the drug reaction to the skin on my feet. Luckily the irritation is relatively mild; lasting only the last three days of the chemo treatment; but the swelling, itching and tiny blistering is still aggravating. I've tried hydro cortisone cream and Eucerin lotion, and while they work, they each leave an irritating residue because neither is completely absorbed into the skin. Your cream, Essentia, is completely absorbed into the skin, relieving the heat of the swelling, and the itch from the skin lightness. The tiny blistering just isn't happening; and because of the complete absorption the skin on my heals are better protected from friction bed sores. Your all natural cream, Essentia, is a blessing to anyone who for any reason, has dry sensitive or irritated skin. Especially for bed confined persons. Thank you for developing such a great product; and for introducing it to me. P.S. You may use any or all of this review to advertise this product, Essentia cream.

My daughter has eczema on her hands, feet and legs. This product not only soothes away her symptoms but it doesn't sting or irritate her cracked skin. I apply daily and I have not seen the eczema since.
