About the Ingredients in Chafe Not:
Not only is coconut oil proven to help prevent skin from losing moisture increasing skins glide and reducing susceptibility to skin disturbances like rash or hives, it also is a top-notch provider of lauric acid which is a natural and gentle antimicrobial, preventing bacteria from damaging skin.
Beeswax works so well as a skin protectant because it rests on top of your skin. While having oils like Coconut, Cocoa and Shea absorb into your skin, it is also beneficial to have ingredients made to sit on top of your skin, sealing your skin?d moisture in and keeping irritants and chafing out. Beeswax also reduces irritating friction.
Lanolin is a lubricant that reduces friction and roughness while also acting as a moisturizer that is longer lived than many other commonly used moisturizers. Lanolin has also proved helpful in wound healing by accelerating the growth of skin cells.
Cocoa butter is rich in emollient proprieties and has a lovely texture. It contains a high proportion of saturated fats including approximately 35% stearic acid (emulsifies and adds to the texture of a moisturizer), 35% oleic acid (emollient and emulsifier) and 27% palmitic acid (reinforce skin’s healthy barrier function and smoother skin surface.) It?s natural level?s of antioxidants also increase shelf life of a product.
Along with the benefits of a high level of fatty acids, shea contains a varying range of phenolic antioxidants that we think might help skin?s ability to regenerate.
The fruit of the Sea Buckthorn is one of the highest sources of Vit C in the plant kingdom. Russians have been using the fruit and a treatment for radiation burns for decades but no certain proof of it?s efficacy exists. However, personal testimonials abound. I place it in almost all of me healing salves because the smell, color and texture of Sea Buckthorn Oil ?feels good? While feeling good isn?t a scientifically sound reason to believe in something, I chose to follow my instincts on this oil since it highly doubt its inclusion will do harm.
I include Neem because I believe it has great antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral abilities explaining its long history as one of the top medicinal ingredients in India and other countries. While I am neither a doctor or scientists, I have had such great experiences with Neem Oil (always diluted with other ingredients) that I highly recommend others to experiment with using it externally. I include it in this salve because a bad rash can begin with simple chaffing or rubbing but once skin is irritated it becomes vulnerable bacteria, yeast, and if you have one, a viral outbreak ? especially in damp and less then pristinely clean environments. Neem and it?s sister oil Karanja are no greater then other oils at preventing chafing but I think it will help fight any secondary microbial challenges your skin might be facing.
I also included Karanja Oil because is has very similar benefits as Neem above but with a more pleasant smell.
Anytime I am concerned with keeping bacteria, fungus and viruses away, I also include tea tree. Plus, I found that tea tree seems to sooth the itchiness caused by rashes and skin distress.
Like the three other ingredients above, oregano seems to be a powerful (and strong) antibacterial and antifungal. A little of this goes a long way.
ESSENTIAL OILS OF WINTERGREEN, SPEARMINT, LEMON EUCALYPTUS, PEPPERMINT EUCALYPTUS AND ROSEMARY
I chose these essentials oils for their ability to give the sensation of cooling, pain reducing and further antibacterial impact.
While it is well known that Vit E is good for the skin, few people realize it is also added to many salves for its ability to extend the shelf life of a product.
Contains Neem and Karanja oils which are great at fighting bacteria while providing glide. Also contains beeswax and lanolin for water resistance and staying power. Essential Oils, fight fungal infections, bacteria and yeast while cooling the skin.
