The other ingredients found in Palm Repair Cream also offer positive effects to the skin, so let’s briefly cover the properties of each one:

Olive oil

Since ancient times, olive oil has been used to soothe the skin and provide it with the necessary nutrients. This oil contains numerous mono- and poly-unsaturated fatty acids that protect the skin from harmful UV light and microbial pathogens.

For this reason, olive oil is described as one of the most potent antimicrobial oil on the planet.

Finally, olive oil moistures and hydrate the skin for individuals with scaly, dry skin.

Sunflower oil

Sunflower oil is rich in vitamins A, C, D, and E, which makes it extremely effective in countering the effects of inflammation and oxidative stress in the skin.

Additionally, the unsaturated fatty acids found in this oil nourishes the skin and provides a mechanical barrier against foreign pathogens.

Finally, sunflower oil can accelerate the process of healing after injuries by improving collagen deposition and the formation of scar tissue.


Arnica is a yellow-orangish flower that grows in the mountains of Siberia. As an active ingredient in our Dragon’s Blood Muscle Rub Cream, it offers the following health benefits:

  • Exerts anti-inflammatory action on the skin
  • Tempers down muscle soreness and aches after physical activity
  • Reduces bruising
  • Controls joint pain and swelling when used locally


Beeswax is the natural wax substance that gets produced in hives. This substance exerts positive effects on the skin and helps in the softening and healing processes.

Similar to olive oil, beeswax also protects against microbes, which decreases the risk of acne, dry skin, and eczema.

Shea butter

Shea butter helps the skin in three major ways:

Anti-inflammatory and healing properties

Shea butter contains compounds that counter the effects of cytokines and other anti-inflammatory substances.

Practically speaking, you can apply shea butter on your face to soothe inflammation and reduce redness.

Emollient properties

Shea butter also has healthy oils that soften the skin and provide a protective barrier against germs and damaging agents.

This effect lasts for hours after applying the product on your skin.

Anti-aging properties

Thanks to the properties cited above, shea butter gained some reputation in the field of anti-aging. The exact mechanism is thought to be mediated by the optimization of collagen production and reducing its breakdown.

The essence of bergamot 

Bergamot oil contains several compounds with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that treat acne.

This oil also relieves pain, especially when triggered by cysts and pimples.

Orange and lemon oil

Both of these essential oils protect the skin from microbes and optimize its texture by promoting radiance and smoothness.
