When I first looked at the ingredient deck of OHA, there were some words that seemed kind of iffy. What is MSM? Is Tocotrienol some sort of medical emergency? Are these safe?
As you well know, OHA is teeming with beautiful essential oils, extracts and minerals, but what sets it apart is the concentration of those potent ingredients and the added bonus of skin-enriching nutrients. Now is as good a time as any to review why these nutrient-rich ingredients rock:
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane): “MSM is an organic sulfur-containing compound that occurs naturally in a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains and animals including humans. It …aids in sulfur metabolism, particularly in connective tissue.” Martha formulated this into most of her products because it supports collagen connectivity while also encouraging skin detoxification. It also helps skin repair itself.
Ester-C & Ascorbyl Palmitate: Both are Vitamin C supplements, which support collagen and protect Vitamin E and our skin cells from oxidative damage (aka “aging”).
Tocopherol & Tocotrienol: These are Vitamin E supplements which are potent antioxidants.
Hydrolyzed Oat Protein: Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles while drawing moisture to the skin.
Glyceryl Stearate: Made from glycerin and stearic acid (an emulsifier derived from vegetable fats), this little wonder helps skin stay hydrated throughout the day.
These ingredients sound intimidating but they support our skin in beautiful ways and keep our complexions looking fabulous. When someone asks you what makes OHA so great, you can tell them it’s made of unbleached and vibrant plant oils with skin-boosting supplements. Easy peasy.
