All ingredients used in Natural AF handmade balms are sourced from Australian suppliers and carefully crafted together to create the amazingly smooth, luscious products you love. Below are all of our ingredients and what benefits they offer to you when combined into our special formulas...
Beeswax is a key ingredient in our products for many reasons, not just it's amazing smell! Including its anti-bacterial properties and its ability to lock in moisture, creating the consistency of our balms that you can't resist is just another benefit! We source our beeswax from Queensland local suppliers and filter it ourselves until we are happy with its creaminess!
Beeswax is rich in vitamin A which supports cell reconstruction, giving support to your skin to heal wounds, scars, stretch marks and many other skin ailments.
Not only that, beeswax is full of properties which promote collagen formation, firming and plumping the skin and improving the signs of wrinkles, fine lines and aging, as part of our balms it softens and soothes by locking in moisture behind a protective barrier, improving the symptoms of rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis and also keeping out irritants that can inflame skin sensitivities.
Beeswax is anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, all these properties make it an excellent ingredient for treating acne, pimples and many other blemishes. Combined into our incredible balms, beeswax is able to reach the layers of the skin where nourishment is most effective.
Coconut oil is the oils derived from the flesh of the coconuts. It is a botanical nut opposed to a tree nut which carries allergenic proteins not found in coconuts.
It is another widely used ingredient in Natural AF products for its many benefits. Sourced from certified organic suppliers, we only use unrefined virgin coconut oil.
Coconut oil offers a range of benefits to the skin including intense hydration and anti-inflammatory properties. It exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells and pollution from inside the pores to leave your skin feeling fresh, It also assists in evening skin tone, reducing dark circles and soothing redness, giving your skin a healthy, youthful glow. Coconut oil will hydrate and restore sun damaged skin, regenerating the moisture within the skin cells that the sun takes away.
We also love coconut oil as an ingredient in our formulas because of its anti-aging effects, even offering benefits as a primer. Its anti-microbial properties and essential vitamins and fatty acids support your skins ability to treat acne and improve elasticity.
Shea butter is the oils derived from the nut of the Shea tree. While a nut product, Shea is very low in the allergenic proteins which are the cause of irritation in other nut products.
It is a primary ingredient in our balms because not only is it amazingly beneficial to the skin for several reasons, but also because combined with our beeswax and cacao butter, it gives our balms their luscious creaminess.
Shea butter is an excellent ingredient to even skin tone, assist with correcting hyper-pigmentation and lightening of dark circles and patches of skin. Shea will also reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, sun damage, rashes and skin swelling.
With its deep nourishing and anti-inflammatory properties Shea butter assists with dermatitis and other irritations to the skin, delivering essential vitamins to the layers of skin where it's most effective.
