The main active (star) ingredient, African Potato extract (Hypoxis Hemerocallidea), has high phytosterol content and has been used for centuries by African traditional cultures for its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The combination of nourishing evening primrose, coconut and avocado oils deeply hydrates and restores damaged skin. Evening Primrose and Wheat Germ oil promote skin healing. Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, protects against environmental aggressors. Avocado oil nourishes and relieves itching. Camphor oil is a natural antispasmodic and provides relief from spasms and cramps, while cooling the skin. Aloe adds additional anti-inflammatory properties to soothe pain, heal inflamed skin, and relieve discomfort. It also absorbs easily, drawing in the beneficial qualities of the other restorative ingredients.
