Kawa Cream – Skin Soother
Our skin is the largest organ of our body and serves as a protective barrier between our external and internal environments. A complex structure that is made up of three distinct layers, it is the outer layer, or epidermis, that we are most familiar with.
The epidermis performs several important functions.
Firstly, the epidermis is responsible for making new skin cells. It is continually shedding dead skin cells and replacing them with new ones which are formed at the epidermal base and take around a month to reach the surface.
Secondly, we get our skin colour from melanocytes in the epidermis that produce the pigment melanin. Melanin is also what gives us freckles and a suntan.
Lastly, the epidermis contains a strong and protective protein called keratin. Keratin is responsible for the elasticity, firmness and waterproofing of our skin.
So, as we can see, this outer layer, or armour, of our precious body is complex and vitally important. We need our skin to be healthy and functioning optimally in order for it perform the functions it is designed for. If our skin is compromised due to wounds, infections or diseases, we need to nourish and repair it using the best nutrients nature has to offer us
Earth Energies Kawa Cream is a gentle blend of oils and herbs that can assist with skin healing while also supporting the body’s natural immune responses.
Kawakawa is known as New Zealand’s native first aid herb and is ideal for helping treat skin conditions where there is discomfort and inflammation. We’ve infused our kawakawa leaves into a nourishing base of organic grapeseed oil and further enriched this with Lavender, Manuka and Kanuka oils to provide gentle antimicrobial, analgesic (pain relieving), anti-inflammatory and healing qualities.
Kawa Cream is readily absorbed and soothing, and can be used on areas where there is:
- Irritation and inflammation, especially for the face (eczema and psoriasis)
- Itchiness (insect bites or hives)
- Dryness or cracking (heels, elbows)
- Boils or lesions
- Burns and sunburn
- Abrasions and minor wounds
- Shaving rashes and irritations
- Facial blemishes
- As a general facial or body moisturiser
Apply Kawa Cream to problem areas at least three times daily or use morning and night as a facial moisturiser.
