First Aid for Skin
It’s amazing just how little most people know about their skins. For instance, did you know it is the largest organ in the body? Depending on height and weight, your skin weighs about nine pounds. It protects you from a lot of nasty bacteria and viruses that can cause diseases. As an endocrine organ, it manufactures hormones like vitamin D for the whole body, as well as steroids and thyroid hormones. In fact, it also makes many of the neurotransmitters and hormones found in the brain.
The skin’s vast network of nerves is vital to life, because it gives us our sense of touch, and sensations of pressure, itching, pain and temperature. The collagen in the skin provides firmness. And when the collagen is broken down, the skin wrinkles and sags. Women’s skin is thinner and drier than men’s, making it more apt to suffer damage from the sun. The skin also provides a handy covering for the muscles underneath. Basic Organics E-Ointment can help keep your skin healthy.
What is it about E-Ointment that makes it so effective? First of all, it contains vitamin E—a powerful antioxidant that’s involved in the metabolism of all cells. It protects vitamin A and essential fatty acids against oxidation, and prevents the breakdown of body tissues. E-Ointment includes Wheat Germ Oil, which in addition to being another source of vitamin E, is also a good source for protein, B vitamins, and the minerals iron, magnesium, manganese, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, copper and potassium. Finally, E-Ointment contains Aloe Vera, which is well known for its ability to heal wounds and burns, relieve itching, and keep the skin supple.
The combination of ingredients in E-Ointment makes it ideal for treating dry skin, wrinkles, and stretch marks. And its pleasant, natural fragrance makes it perfect whenever you just want to soothe and moisturize your skin.
