The Best Chafing Cream Isn't Just for Stopping the Chafe
Our Movement Balm Anti-Chafing product combines some of the world’s most effective anti-inflammatory and antioxidative compounds to stop skin irritation and accelerate healing.
Let’s see how each ingredient will help your skin:
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.
Olive oil also moisturizes and hydrates the skin for individuals with scaly, dry skin.
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.
Calendula helps the skin in several ways, including:
- Protecting against harmful UV light
- Accelerating wound healing
- Controlling the severity of acne vulgaris, psoriasis, and eczema
These benefits are due to Calendula’s antimicrobial and antiseptic properties that cleanse the skin from foreign pathogens.
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.
Propolis offers a myriad of health benefits to the entire body even when applied topically. We covered these benefits in great detail in this blog post.
Lemon essence helps the skin shed the layers of dead cells, which could help patients with psoriasis and dandruff.
The main way that lemon essence exerts its action is by modifying skin PH due to the rich content of citric acid.
