Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E Oil is a plant derived by vacuum distillation from vegetable fats, like Soya bean oil, Sunflower oil, etc. Vitamin E Oil is a mix of Tocopherols and Tocotrienols versus synthetically made Tocopheryl Acetate.
Sea Starz uses natural vitamin E in our handcrafted soaps - it is a powerful antioxidant that blocks production of harmful free radicals. Its hydrating and moisturizing properties benefit the skin.
Vitamin E Oil promotes healing, boosts collagen production, and prevents premature aging.
Additionally, when it is used in making soap, producing creams, lotions and other beauty products it also works as a natural antioxidant that prevents the oils and butters turning rancid and, in this way, naturally prolongs shelf-life of beauty products.
A powerful antioxidant, vitamin E helps protect your body against damage from environmental toxins. Fruits are not generally as rich in Vitamin E, but you can boost your dietary intake of Vitamin E by including these fruit varieties in your diet - avocado, mango, kiwifruit and papaya. Wonderful papaya is in abundance in Fiji all year around.
Remember, beautiful appearance is also to be maintained from inside! Eat healthy and look beautiful and healthy. Good food sources of Vitamin E are vegetable oils, nuts and seeds and green leafy vegetables.
Loofah is a plant in the cucumber family. It is a vine with lovely beautiful yellow flowers that is very much loved by bees. A fully developed fruit is very fibrous and is used as a natural body sponge.
The plant grows at our home in the Fiji Islands. All Loofahs are hand-picked, hand-cleaned and washed and dried under the Fijian sky in the warm sunshine.
A Loofah sponge's coarse texture helps with skin polishing.
