The Newly Discovered Skincare Benefits of Horsetail Extract

When we think of “horsetail,” the first thing we think of is, literally, the hairs from the tail of a horse! And when we think of “horsetail” and “skincare” in the same sentence, we might get some pretty funny ideas. Thankfully, we’re talking about something entirely different when we refer to the health aspects and skincare benefits of horsetail.

“Horsetail” is actually a type of weed. It might not be that well known to the layman, but this weed has been around for a long time and it’s been in use for a long time too. In fact, horsetail plants have been used in medicine for thousands of years. And you may have actually seen this plant at some point too, and just not recognized it as a holistic medicine plant. For example, if you’ve ever strolled through any wetlands region in North America, you’ve probably seen horsetail plants on the edges of marshes and ponds. It looks kind of like a horse’s tail, hence the name.

Horsetail is a part of the fern family and is sometimes colloquially referred to as “bottlebrush,” “mare’s tail,” “scouring rush,” and “shave grass.”A favorite in the holistic remedies of Native American medicine men, Roman healers, Greek doctors, and ancient Chinese medical experts, the medicinal benefits of horsetail are certainly not a new discovery. But only recently are scientists figuring out what about horsetail gives it its healing properties. For example, it was recently discovered that this indigenous plant is rich in bioavailable silicon. The silicon-rich nature of horsetail is the primary element within the plant that gives it its healing properties.

What is Bioavailable Silicon?

New studies indicate that horsetail contains the trace mineral silicon in the form of silica and silica acids. In fact, not only does horsetail contain more of this substance than any other known herb, but it contains the element in a form that is highly absorbable by the human body. That’s why this funny-looking weed is often sought after as a health supplement.

To be clear, Silicon1 is not silicone. Silicon is a mineral essential to human health, while silicone is a man-made substance derived from silicon.

Bioavailable silicon is rich in nutrients like calcium, iron, manganese, and antioxidants. Those properties, in turn, make silicon a natural anti-microbial, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory.

Because of its intrinsic properties, horsetail offers a wide variety of health benefits. According to WebMD2, horsetail can be used to treat conditions like:

  • Tuberculosis
  • Jaundice
  • Hepatitis
  • Brittle fingernails
  • Joint diseases
  • Gout
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Frostbite

While most of the health benefits of horsetail have been known for some time, it wasn’t until recently that the skincare benefits of horsetail were discovered. Horsetail can treat skin wounds and burns when applied directly to the skin in the form of a topical cream. The extract of the plant can also soothe and relieve dry, irritated, red, and itchy skin conditions. The plant’s healing properties are best-utilized when horsetail extract is synthesized into a skin lotion or face cream, as that is how one gets the maximum benefits of the plant while using the least amount of it.

Horsetail and Your Skin

The primary reason why horsetail extract benefits the skin is because the plant’s bioavailable silicon promotes the growth and retention of collagen. That slows the effect of the aging process on the skin. When applied as a cream, horsetail extract can enhance the luster and shine of the skin, giving it a full, youthful texture and glow.

  • When used as an organic skin lotion, horsetail extracts also have antioxidant properties. That further reduces skin aging.
  • Horsetail is an excellent additive to topical skin moisturizers because of the anti-microbial nature of the extract. Such a characteristic serves to clean the skin while also moisturizing it.
  • The anti-inflammatory nature of horsetail is perfect as a psoriasis lotion or eczema cream. That’s because most skin problems such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema are usually the result of chronic inflammation3.

Horsetail extract is not just a fantastic skincare remedy either. An article on Stylecraze4 talks about how horsetail supplements, creams, and ointments can also:

  • Control hair loss
  • Treat kidney stones and diarrhea
  • Strengthen nails
  • Heal wounds
  • Promote better bone health
  • Prevent blood clotting
  • Reduce inflammation

Next time you’re shopping for an organic face moisturizer, consider buying one that has horsetail extract as one of the primary ingredients. The benefits of this ancient weed make it a must for anyone’s skincare regimen!

Exploring the Benefits of Organic Sunflower Oil

Known for being an excellent cooking oil, new studies are informing the general public of the fascinating benefits of organic sunflower oil as a natural solution to skincare.

For example, did you know that the most abundant nutrient in organic sunflower oil is vitamin E? That alone makes the oil very helpful when processed into an all-natural skin cream, not only for moisturizing but also for protecting the skin. And that’s just one of the ingredients.

Millions of people have used sunflower oil in their kitchens as an alternative to olive oil. However, the use of organic sunflower oil in skincare is a relatively new approach. But thanks to recent scientific data, this vitamin E-enriched oil has been proven to be highly beneficial for treating anything from dry, irritated skin to advanced eczema to even acute, sun-damaged skin.

Organic Sunflower Oil – A Natural Skin Remedy

An article on Stylecraze1 says that, “When topically used, sunflower oil can have excellent anti-inflammatory effects. The oil also improves the skin barrier. This way, it further enhances skin health.”

That article cites a peer-reviewed research paper published at the U.S. National Library of Medicine2. Thanks to the vitamin E nutrients in sunflower oil (combined with unsaturated fatty acids for maximum absorption into skin tissue), this elementary yet nutrient-rich oil is ideally suited for repairing damaged skin. And because sunflower oil can be produced in nutrient-rich creams and lotions as well, organic sunflower oil is now an essential ingredient for anyone’s skincare regimen.

Sunflower oil is also high in linoleic acid. According to an international, cooperative research effort3 put together to improve skin health in third world countries, the naturally-occurring abundance of linoleic acid in sunflower oil makes this substance ideally suited for enhancing the skin barrier and for protecting against sun damage. In fact, sunflower oil came out on top in multiple trials when tested against other oils. Sunflower oil proved to be a better skin protectant than other vegetable oils like olive oil, mustard oil, and soybean oil.

The Nutrient-rich Nature of Sunflower Oil

Organic sunflower oil is made up of a long list of healthy and naturally-occurring nutrients. Case in point, this oil is rich in both vitamins A and E. Vitamin A promotes skin health thanks to its powerful antioxidant properties. For more details, see this article at NDTV Food4.

For a quick summary, vitamin A is known to:

  • Regenerate damaged skin cells
  • Remove acne-causing bacteria
  • Moisturize the skin without blocking pores
  • Treat dry, sensitive skin

And thanks to the vitamin E-rich nature of sunflower oil, some research even suggests that the topical application of sunflower oil could help prevent certain skin cancers. The research is still underway, but the tentative results are promising so far. One study titled, “Vitamin E in Dermatology,”5 says that,

“It (vitamin E) protects the skin from various deleterious effects due to solar radiation by acting as a free-radical scavenger. Experimental studies suggest that vitamin E has antitumorigenic and photo-protective properties.”

Given that sunflowers have both vitamin A and vitamin E as naturally-occurring nutrients within the plants, people who use the oil reap the benefits of two highly beneficial vitamins when they add sunflower oil to their daily skincare.

Using Organic Sunflower Oil in an All-Natural Face Cream or Skin Lotion

One of the benefits of sunflower oil that has nothing to do with its ingredients is the “transmutable nature” of the oil. What that term means is that organic sunflower oil, even in its liquid, oil form, can be processed into an all-natural skin cream. And furthermore, we can process the oil into a skin cream without losing any of the inherent health benefits of the oil. That makes organic sunflower oil ideally suited for people who:

  • Spend a lot of time outside and who want to avoid potential sun damage
  • Need a pure, organic, and plant-based lotion for dry, red, itchy, or irritated skin
  • Require a fast-acting eczema cream or a psoriasis cream that does not block skin pores
  • Need to find an effective face moisturizer that enriches the skin without increasing skin oils

For the above reasons and many others, organic sunflower oil is a must in skin care.

Five Benefits of Organic Coconut Oil – The Miracle Ingredient in Your Skin Care Regimen

While coconuts and coconut oil have been essential food staples for centuries, western civilization only just recently began exploring coconut oil for its health benefits. For example, some studies show that coconut oil can improve the moisture content of the skin. Thanks to coconut oil, people have been able to reduce symptoms of eczema and psoriasis with a simple, daily application of a coconut oil lotion or cream. (More on that later).

And that’s just one benefit. As scientists continue to study and experiment with coconut oil, more benefits are revealed. Currently, not only is coconut oil being used as a dietary additive and cooking oil, but the market for coconut oil as a topical remedy and skin aide is soaring. From dry skin relief to retaining healthy, youthful, and glowing skin to addressing severe skin conditions, coconut oil is helping millions of people improve their skin health.

But what about coconut oil makes it beneficial? Why is coconut oil good for you?

Coconut Oil – Nature’s Favorite Fat (And Yes, it’s the Good Kind of Fat)

We know coconut oil has lots of benefits. But why? What about coconut oil makes it useful for our health? According to an article on Healthline1, “Coconut oil is high in healthy saturated fats that have different effects than most other fats in your diet. These fats can boost fat burning and provide your body and brain with quick energy. They also raise the good HDL cholesterol in your blood, which is linked to reduced heart disease risk.”

And while coconut oil might be a relatively new health discovery in Western civilization, there is plenty of historical precedent from other parts of the world where coconuts have been boosting health for centuries. Again quoting Healthline, “In some parts of the world, coconut (loaded with coconut oil) is a dietary staple that people have thrived on for many generations. The best example of such a population is the Tokelauans, which live in the South Pacific. They used to eat over 60% of their calories from coconuts. When studied, they were found to be in excellent health, with very low rates of heart disease.”

So not only has coconut oil been in use for countless generations, but the research continues to indicate that this substance is highly beneficial for internal health and external, skin-related health.

Five Benefits of Coconut Oil

Entire dissertations have been written on the benefits of coconut oil. But for the sake of brevity, here are five quick benefits of this fantastic, all-natural health aide.

  1. In one study,2 coconut oil was found to be beneficial in reducing symptoms of dermatitis. Coconut oil was found to increase skin moisture retention, helping prevent dryness and itchiness.
  2. And in this study,3 coconut oil was found to help control and reduce symptoms of xerosis, a common skin condition. Xerosis is a dermal condition which includes itchy, dry, rough, scaly skin symptoms. The use of coconut oil products was able to reduce such symptoms.
  3. Another benefit of coconut oil is in its oral application. Called “oil pulling,” the use of coconut oil in the mouth has the advantages of killing harmful bacteria and improving dental health. Check out this study in the Indian Journal of Dental Research4 for more information.
  4. Some research also suggests that coconut oil benefits the hair and nails. People who use coconut oil for their skin will sometimes rub coconut oil products into their scalp and onto their nails. Hair and nails that have been treated with organic coconut oil maintain a shiny, lustrous appearance. One research article even says that coconut oil is the best natural nutrient5 for healthy hair.
  5. Another study6 cites coconut oil as having the ability to create a barrier on the skin. Such a barrier protects the skin from external forces, such as dry air, dusty conditions, etc. This barrier also prevents moisture from leaving the skin, keeping the skin adequately hydrated. Furthermore, coconut oil has an anti-inflammatory effect, according to the same study.

Keep in mind that the use of coconut oil as an organic face moisturizer and general skincare supplement is relatively new. We don’t know everything there is to know about the benefits of this fascinating, natural substance. What else can organic coconut oil do? Or maybe a better question to ask is, what can’t it do?

Cocoa Butter – How Cocoa Beans Make More than Just Great Chocolate!

When we think of cocoa butter, the first thing we think of is our favorite tasty treats, be it candy bars, hot cocoa, chocolate cake, or chocolate chip ice cream. And yes, cocoa is a crucial ingredient in all things chocolate. But did you know that cocoa butter also has properties that promote healthy skin? That’s right, some versions of cocoa butter go on the skin.

And perhaps best of all, this is a type of cocoa that won’t make you gain weight!

Cocoa Butter and Your Skin

Let’s define this miracle of tasty goodness and skincare. Quoting healthline1:

Cocoa butter is a type of fat that comes from cocoa beans. To harness cocoa butter, the beans are taken out of the larger cacao plant. Then they’re roasted, stripped, and pressed to separate out the fat—the cocoa butter. The remnants are then processed into cocoa powder.

– Healthline.com

While the cocoa powder goes on to make much of the chocolatey goodies we all know and love, the remaining cocoa butter can be used for a variety of purposes. More recently, researchers found that cocoa butter has unique properties which promote healthy skin.

There are two prominent reasons why cocoa butter is now used in organic face cream and all-natural skin cream.

  1. The first benefit can be summed up in one word: phytochemicals. Cocoa butter helps promote blood flow to the skin, and cocoa butter also helps protect the skin against damage from the sun’s powerful UV rays. The key to these protective features is the phytochemicals found in cocoa beans. Phytochemicals are potent substances that enrich skin tissue, pump blood to the skin (a healing component there as well), and generally boost the skin’s own protective layering.
  2. Cocoa butter is also high in fatty acids. Fatty acids provide the nourishing, hydrating components of the butter. The fatty acids are why this substance is often used in natural face moisturizer, eczema cream, psoriasis lotion, body cream, etc. It’s the fatty acids that hydrate, improve elasticity, reduce scarring, smooth wrinkles, and minimize stretch marks.

The dual nature of cocoa butter’s phytochemicals and fatty acids also work together within the skin, combining to relieve unpleasant skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, dry skin, red skin, itching skin, etc.

There’s even research that suggests that cocoa butter has the potential to prevent and treat skin diseases. Such healing properties have been hinted at for a long time, ever since archaeologists found evidence that ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations2 from more than 3,000 years ago used cocoa butter for medicinal purposes. (They even used cocoa as a currency!)

And now we have preliminary scientific research3 which suggests that cocoa butter could be used to prevent and heal skin disease.

Combining Cocoa Butter with Other Active Ingredients

At Avera Organics, we created a wonderful Face & Body Cream, an organic face moisturizer and lotion for dry skin that has countless benefits. Cocoa butter is a prominent ingredient in our Face & Body Cream, but it is just one of many. Our natural face moisturizer and skin cream also has:

The Benefits of Vitamin B5 – A Key Ingredient in Organic, All-Natural Face Cream

Did you know that there are eight different B vitamins?1 And each one has a range of healthful benefits and positive effects for the human body and its various systems. The eight B vitamins are:

  • Thiamine (B1)
  • Riboflavin (B2)
  • Niacin (B3)
  • Pantothenic acid (B5)
  • Pyridoxine (B6)
  • Biotin (B7)
  • Folate (B9)
  • Cobalamin (B12)

Each B vitamin has its own strengths. None of the B vitamins should be ignored in one’s pursuit of healthy living. With that in mind, a great way to get the most out of the B vitamins is to take a daily B vitamin, (also called a multivitamin), in the form of a dietary supplement. Taken once per day with food, such supplementation can provide the body with most of the benefits of B vitamins.

However, there is one B vitamin that stands out, one that should be utilized differently. This is speaking of course of vitamin B5, the incredible B vitamin that promotes healthy skin growth.

Vitamin B5 – Nature’s Gift to the Skin

Vitamin B5 is probably best known for its ability to help the body process food. Vitamin B5 assists in metabolizing fats, proteins, enzymes, carbohydrates, etc. Some experts even suggest that vitamin B5 can help boost energy levels,2 simply by aiding the body in metabolizing food.

But vitamin B5 does a whole lot more than just break down food. Vitamin B5 also promotes the growth of healthy skin, hair, and nails. B5 even benefits the eyes and liver, two organ systems that sometimes need extra nourishment.

This fantastic little vitamin is usually administered via a dietary supplement. We also see the vitamin crop up in several food types, such as eggs, milk, yogurt, cabbage, kale, avocado, cheese, nuts, broccoli, liver, kidneys, and apples. However, to capitalize on Vitamin B5’s benefits for healthy skin, the vitamin is best administered in the form of a topical cream. And for maximum benefit to the skin, some experts recommend a combination of topical application and daily B5 supplements.

One study3 even found that the use of vitamin B5 supplements helped patients with mild to moderate acne. In the study, the daily use of B5 supplements helped reduce acne lesions. But imagine the potential added benefits of utilizing daily supplementation along with a soothing, calming, itch-relief, and dry skin-relief topical cream?

And not only does vitamin B5 (when used in a topical cream) promote healthy, youthful, glowing skin, but it can also be used to remedy unpleasant skin conditions in addition to acne. According to healthline,4 vitamin B5-infused skin cream can be used to treat baldness, dandruff, dry skin, flaky itchy, or red skin, damaged hair, eczema, and even diaper rash.

And while it is true that Vitamin B5 can provide some of these benefits when taken in the form of a dietary supplement, this is not necessarily the best way to use the vitamin. For maximum results, most people prefer taking vitamin B5 in the form of a psoriasis lotion, eczema cream, or natural face moisturizer.

Vitamin B5 and the Avera Organics Face & Body Cream

Vitamin B5, or pantothenic acid, is one of the key ingredients in the Avera Organics Face & Body Cream. By adding B5 to our natural face moisturizer, this useful cream now helps stimulate healthy, lustrous skin. Vitamin B5 is already a fantastic dietary supplement. Why not order a cream that maximizes the benefits of this fantastic vitamin for facial, topical use?

Avera Organics figured out how to take vitamin B5’s healing properties and maximize them in a topical cream. And in addition to B5, our signature face moisturizer is chock full of more than two dozen essential vitamins, ingredients, supplements, oils, and emollients. Order a jar of our Avera Organics aloe vera cream today, and experience the best organic face moisturizer yet! And as always, if you have any questions about our skin cream, contact us! We’re always happy to talk with our customers!

Is Aloe Vera Good for Dry Skin?: A Look at Professional Commentary and Scientific Studies on Nature’s Favorite Healer

A cherished healing remedy that’s been in use for thousands of years, Aloe vera is perhaps one of the most well-known household medicines for skin conditions. Many homes across America have Aloe vera plants in them, ready and waiting for a gentle pluck of a succulent leaf for use on sunburns, itchy skin, minor cuts, small abrasions, etc.

But is Aloe vera good for dry skin? And if it is, how can we best utilize this plant’s near-magical properties?

Aloe Vera – The Healing Plant

When people think of Aloe vera, they immediately think of everyone’s favorite remedy for sunburns and 1st-degree burns. But in truth, Aloe vera has a multitude of healing properties. Aloe is best-known for burn relief, yes, but that’s just the beginning of what this miracle-like plant can do.

For example, Aloe vera helps seal moisture in the skin1 when applied topically. For people with dry skin conditions, this is of immense benefit. Aloe vera works moisture back into the skin, helping to draw moisture into the skin and keep it there. And in cold, dry, low-humidity environments, an Aloe vera application acts as a natural protectant for the skin, preventing skin moisture from being sucked out by a low-humidity climate. This process is immensely beneficial for those who live in cold or dry climates, or for those who struggle with particularly dry skin no matter where they live.

Kim Chang, a licensed aesthetician with the Baylor Aesthetics Studio,2 was quoted in a Baylor College of Medicine news release on this subject. Chang spoke on the healing properties of Aloe vera, how this unique plant can do a lot more than just heal burns.

Chang said:

“Aloe vera has lots of uses. It contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C, and it is highly anti-inflammatory. It can help treat burns, acne, and dry skin.”

Because Aloe vera is a succulent plant, its moisturizing properties help relieve skin that’s been dried out by air conditioning, central heating, hot showers, cold weather, low humidity, eczema, psoriasis, thyroid disorders, etc. And since Aloe has vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidants in it, the plant does more than just moisturize! From dry skin to other, irritable skin conditions, millions of people use Aloe vera to relieve itchy, red, cracked, swollen, flaking, and otherwise unhappy skin.

There’s been a good bit of scientific research into the healing properties of Aloe vera as well. This research focused on the benefits of Aloe vera as a topical remedy. A peer-reviewed study published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine3 had this to say about the moisturizing (dry skin relief) nature of Aloe vera:

“Its moisturizing effects has also been studied in treatment of dry skin associated with occupational exposure where aloe vera gel gloves improved the skin integrity, decreased appearance of fine wrinkle, and decreased erythema. It also had an anti-acne effect.”

Aloe Vera by Avera Organics – Our Favorite Aloe Vera Skin Cream

Aloe vera is nature’s favorite healer. It’s also one of the oldest healing plants still in use today. We can trace the use of Aloe back to the medical techniques of the ancient Egyptians4 some 3,000 years ago.

But how do we best utilize Aloe? How can we create an efficient, easily-applicable form of the plant for daily use?

Aloe vera, when it is in its plant form, is comprised of about 95 percent water. But that other five percent is chock full of healthy enzymes, vitamins, and healing properties.

At Avera Organics, rather than selling Aloe vera plants, we capitalized on that five percent of the essential ingredients in Aloe that make it so immensely beneficial. We created a special cream, our Natural Face and Body Cream Moisturizer. This cream has organic Aloe vera as its primary, active ingredient. The cream condenses the five percent of the plant’s most beneficial ingredients into one, simple, easy-to-use skin cream.

And in addition to having everything we love about Aloe vera, our Natural Face and Body Cream Moisturizer is also chock-full of other healthy ingredients like Shea butter, organic Coconut oil, Jojoba oil, Vitamin B5, and organic Borage oil.

The Best, Organic Aloe Vera Face & Body Cream

After years of testing and experimenting, we feel strongly that our organic face & body cream is the best Aloe vera cream for dry skin. Now our customers can enjoy the multiple benefits of Aloe vera, plus all the added, healthful ingredients. We put all of that together into a sweet-smelling, easily-applied topical cream.

We still have our Aloe vera plants, and we love raising them! But there is no doubt that the Avera Organics Natural Face and Body Cream Moisturizer is the best organic face & body cream for dry skin relief. Order your own jar today, and shop with peace of mind thanks to our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
