- Red Aloe (Aloe ferox) has been used topically for centuries to support skin health. European sailors routinely used the sap for skin that was exposed to the elements, rope burns, and salt water exposure. Studies and research have also investigated Aloe ferox for its supportive benefits on skin health. Paulsen, E., Korsholm, L., and Brandrup, F. "A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of a commercial Aloe vera gel in the treatment of slight to moderate psoriasis vulgaris." J Eur Acad.Dermatol Venereol 2005;19(3):326-331.
- Extract of Nettle (stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) and/or dwarf nettle (Urtica urens)) is used topically to help support the skin and soothe common itchiness.(Van Parijs J, Broekaert WF, and Peumans WJ. "Urtica dioica agglutinin: a plant lectin with antifungal properties." Archives Internationales de Physiologie et de Biochimie 1988;96(1):31.)
- Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginianum) can be used to support the skin in the cases of non-serious insect bites and common sunburn and grazes. This herb has been the subject of numerous studies due to its potential to support the skin while soothing common itchiness and irritation. (Deters, A., Dauer, A., Schnetz, E., Fartasch, M., and Hensel, A. "High molecular compounds (polysaccharides and proanthocyanidins) from Hamamelis virginiana bark: influence on human skin keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation and influence on irritated skin." Phytochemistry 2001;58(6):949-958)( Gloor, M., Reichling, J., Wasik, B., and Holzgang, H. E. "Antiseptic effect of a topical dermatological formulation that contains Hamamelis distillate and urea." Forsch.Komplementarmed.Klass.Naturheilkd. 2002;9(3):153-159.).
- Marigold (Calendula officinalis) is known to support the skin and is an excellent skin tonic. Recent studies have investigated Marigold for its supportive capacity to soothe flustered skin. (Fuchs SM, Schliemann-Willers S, Fischer TW, Elsner P. "Protective effects of different marigold (Calendula officinalis L.) and rosemary cream preparations against sodium-lauryl-sulfate-induced irritant contact dermatitis". Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Friedrich-Schiller University Jena, Jena, Germany , Skin Pharmacol Physiol. 2005 Jul-Aug;18(4):195-200. Epub 2005 May 20.). (Della, Loggia R., Tubaro, A., Sosa, S., Becker, H., Saar, S., and Isaac, O. "The role of triterpenoids in the topical anti-inflammatory activity of Calendula officinalis flowers." Planta Med 1994;60(6):516-520)
- Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca laterifolia) has wonderful soothing and calming properties for the skin. Numerous studies have been conducted to investigate Tea Tree Oil for its effect on skin health. (Enshaieh, S., Jooya, A., Siadat, A. H., and Iraji, F. "The efficacy of 5% topical tea tree oil gel in mild to moderate acne vulgaris: a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled study." Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol 2007;73(1):22-25. ) (Koh, K. J., Marshman, G., and Hart, P. H. "Tea tree oil reduces histamine-induced skin inflammation." Br J Dermatol 2002;147(6):1212-1217.)
- Lavender essential oil is a sweet-smelling essential oil that also has strong supportive properties for the skin. Lavender oil is valued for its calming properties and is wonderful for soothing common discomfort and promoting relaxation of the spirit! (Ghelardini C, Galeotti N, Salvatore G, et al. "Local anesthetic activity of the essential oil of Lavandula angustifolia." Planta Med 1999;65(8):700-703.)
- Vitamin E oil is widely used to nourish the skin and encourage the body to resist free-radical damage. Many people use Vitamin E products topically to support optimal skin health.
