So if you're one of those people who just tries every moisturizer on the market, hoping to find something that actually does what they claim it's going to do (I definitely was), then you must try pure plant-derived ingredients.
When a person applies lotions that contain lots of synthetics it smothers the skin not allowing the skin to breathe or get rid of toxins, it's kind of like wrapping yourself in plastic wrap. Many of these synthetic molecules will just sit on top of the skin, others, that are small enough, will penetrate through the pores and begin traveling throughout the bloodstream straight to the body's vital organs.
However, essential oils and other plant derived butters and oils, having a very small molecular structure, and containing lots of anti-oxidants, are able to quickly penetrate through the pores, and go deep down into the skin's layers. Plant oils and butters not only softens the skin, but protects it against damage, and gives skin a more youthful, healthy appearance. Because the oil is absorbed into the skin and into the cell structure of the connective tissues, pure plant-derived ingredients can even promote healing of damaged skin.
