Quality skin care products should not only feel and smell great, but should protect and help heal your skin. The reason why Solarté Collections products work the way they do is because of the top quality and ethically produced natural ingredients we use with no parabens, no phthalates, no silicone, and no mineral oil or petroleum products.
Health Benefits from Nature
Shea butter is the key moisturizer in Solarté Collections products because it's simply one of the best natural moisturizers ever identified. Shea butter is produced from the nuts of shea trees grown in Africa. The moisturizers in shea butter are similar to those produced by your body's sebaceous glands.1 The sebum produced by these glands waterproofs and lubricates our skin while helping to protect us from infections.2 The compounds found in shea butter have also been found to help reduce inflammation naturally3, help skin recover from wounds4, and soften scar tissue.5
Shea butter Is a natural source of vitamins A, E, and F (linoleic acid). Studies have shown that topically applying these nutrients has provided benefits to the skin ranging from reducing wrinkles6 to protecting from sun damage7 to anti-inflammation.8 The numerous health benefits inherent to shea butter and its contribution to supporting our natural moisturizing factor (NMF) make it helpful in reducing the impact of such conditions as eczema,9 psoriasis, ichthyosis, and xerosis.10
In addition to Shea butter, Solarté Collections uses other quality ingredients such as glycerin11 and beeswax12 to improve moisture retention, vitamin C to help enhance the protective benefits provided by vitamin E13, and natural lavender14 and verbena15 to reduce anxiety and help improve mood.
