Cocoa butter is an antioxidant powerhouse, anti-inflammatory and a rich moisturizer. Almond oil is rich in vitamin D, vitamin E (Tocopherol) and various minerals that help soothe the skin from irritation. Almond oil protects the skin from UV radiation damage and restore the skin’s moisture barrier. Arrowroot Powder can act as an excellent substitute for talc or cornstarch in cosmetic formulations.
