Are Natural Ingredients Actually Effective?

[social_share/]

According to a University of Louisville study called Innovations in natural ingredients and their use in skin care, natural ingredients are proven to be effective in topical skin care. Lucky for you, Martha has used the very best natural, organic skin care ingredients to nurture your skin’s natural healing abilities and conquer free radicals that age your skin prematurely.

“Certain ingredients, such as colloidal oatmeal and aloe vera, have been identified as beneficial in the treatment of psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, respectively, due to their anti-inflammatory properties”

Martha includes aloe vera in almost every formulation – Cleansing Milk, Hydrating Mist, Facial Sugar Scrub, Daily Moisturizer, Night Cream, Supercritical CO2 Gel Mask, Lip Line Treatment, Under Eye Therapy, Vitamin C Infused Hand Cream, and Shea Body Butter.

 

“For combating acne and rosacea, green tea, niacinamide and feverfew are considered efficacious.”

Acne and rosacea are common symptoms of internal inflammation. If these ingredients appeal to you, check out our Hydrating Mist, Daily Moisturizer, Night Cream, Lip Line Treatment, Under Eye Therapy, Supercritical CO2 Gel Mask, Shea Body Butter, and Vitamin C Infused Hand Cream

“As to hyperpigmentation and antioxidative capabilities, licorice, green tea, arbutin, soy, acai berry, turmeric and pomegranate are among those plants and compounds found to be most beneficial.”

Since this is from a scientific abstract, the writers decided to lump together two distinct ingredient actions : hyperpigmentation correctors and antioxidants. Licorice is a fantastic dark spot remover and is featured in the Vitamin C Infused Hand Cream. The rest of the ingredients listed are potent antioxidants, which you’ll find in high concentrations in the all of Martha’s formulations, but most especially in the Supercritical CO2 Gel Mask.

Coconuts: Not Just for Pina Coladas

[social_share/]

You could probably tell that we love coconut oil. It’s in over half of the OHA product line.

Cleansing Milk

Intensive Nutrient Complex

Lip Line Treatment

Daily Moisturizer

Night Cream

Vanilla Bean & Shea Body Butter

Virgin Coconut Oil has Vitamin E and antioxidant fatty acids that help our body retain and absorb nutrients. Coconut Oil is a uniquely beneficial ingredient. It provides nutrients and assists absorption of other nutrients because it contains medium chain fatty acid chains not present in other oils. This means it doesn’t take any extra energy from our bodies to absorb, use or store nutrients. Coconut Oil also has a long history of use as an emollient and healing moisturizer for the skin and scalp.

How Hydrosols Work for All Skin Types

[social_share/]

iStock_000009150487XSmallOur Hydrating Mist contains hydrosols, which are commonly called ‘floral waters’. Real hydrosols are actually the first products that result from the plant distillation process, followed by essential oils. Although it would be significantly less expensive to mix water and essential oils for a toning water (as most botanical skin care lines do), we use real hydrosols because all skin types, even the most sensitive, can absorb and benefit from them.

OHA uses rose and lavender hydrosols due to their immense healing and soothing properties. You can even use them on babies! Hydrosols are not as bioactive as other compounds but their ability to gently soothe and hydrate is well worth it.

Tea Tree: Anti-Bad & Pro-Good

[social_share/]

herbsOur Facial Sugar Scrub contains classic tea tree oil plus two additional, unique types of tea tree: lavender and lemon. Tea tree addresses breakouts and inflammatory responses by being antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.

Because tea tree is such a potent, healing oil, it was used on American Soldiers to alleviate gangrene in the Vietnam War and, to this day, Australians keep tea tree in their first aid kits. Tea tree also helps ward off head lice, heal itchy bug bites and diminish the appearance of cellulite.

While tea tree does all of this for your skin, it also offers a boost to your overall immune system.

Please note that tea tree oil can be irritating on chapped or burnt skin.
