After a long cold winter spent indoors, skin can become dry and de-hydrated. Extremes of indoor/outdoor temperature can affect skin when exposed to air-conditioning and then cold winter winds.
The solution is close at hand with Nature's Care all new Paw Paw Balm and Lip Balm, now re-formulated with a smoother texture that absorbs easily into the skin to give an instant hit of hydration to where you need it most.
"Our customers love our all-natural paw paw range and told us they would prefer a smoother textured balm to enhance their moisturising experience and a creamier lip balm with increased paw paw flavour. We have released a new, smoother balm formulation enriched with natural oils and nourishing vitamin E, which is even more hydrating than ever before. We have also enahnced the delicious all natural paw paw flavour of our popular Lip Balm to give a more intense yummy fruity flavour," said Michael Wu, general manager, Nature's Care Australia.
Made with real paw paw, this rich, nourishing skin care range is designed to moisturise skin and lips to provide relief and protection from dryness from top to toe.
"Paw Paw has been used for centuries in natural medicine and is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and healing qualities. It is rich in Omega nine and is full of antioxidants, particularly the 'skin vitamins' A and C. Papaya seed oil contains the enzyme papain, which gently removes dead skin cells to help speed up cell renewal," said Mr Wu.
Nature's Care Balm 30g is made with real paw paw seed oil in a newly forumlated premium base of beeswax, sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E, the combination of paw paw and the natural oils in this rich soothing formula delivers a beautiful hydrating balm straight from the hands of Mother Nature.
Beeswax is a natural wax produced in the hive of honey bees. It is known to lock in moisture and protect the skin from damaging enviromental factors. It softens the skin and protects it from the elements.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect and repair the skin and assist with anti-ageing. Antioxidants neutralise free radicals and prevent cellular damage from occuring.
Sunflower Seed Oli is rich in beta-carotene, essential fatty acids and vitamin E. It contains omega 6 fatty acids, which have soothing anti-inflammatory properties, and helps to promote cell renewal to give healthy, glowing skin.
"The combination of these rich moisturies combined with paw paw makes for a powerful, all-natural hydrating formulation to keep skin looking and feeling hydrated," said Ms Wang.
Use Nature's Care Balm on legs, elbows and hands - anywhere you need to moisturise and protect skin, keeping it soft and supple. Use after the bath or shower and pop some in your handbag for instant hydration on the go.
Nature's Care Lip Balm 10g prevents chapping and sooth dry lips with this super-hydrating lip balm. It features paw paw seed oil in a sumptuous blend of natural oils and waxes: sunflower oil, castor oil and beeswax. Free from petrochemicals, it has a lovely natural paw paw flavour and slides smoothly onto lips with the built-in applicator. It has a pleasant taste and leaves a subtle layer of gloss, keeping lips looking and feeling soft and moist.
Soothing Holiday Skincare For The Whole Family
The summer holidays are finally upon us and it's time to take a long break and enjoy some time with the kids. Whether you're off to the beach, on a camping trip or out and about at the park or a BBQ, there's nothing like sunburn, mozzie bites or itchy skin to spoil a family day out.
That's when it's best to think ahead, and pack your -emergency kit' of supplies, says Christine Kininmonth, Ausmumpreneur of the year and mother of four. Christine recommends:
Sunscreen – choose an all-natural 50 plus sunscreen specifically designed for children's sensitive skin. Make sure it is waterproof and re-apply often. Zinc cream is a great choice.
Hat and sunglasses – we often remember to put a hat on our kids' heads but forget about sunglasses. The Cancer Council does a great range of children's sunglasses with UVA and UVB protective lenses.
Long sleeved tops – you can't go past a cool cotton top, or a rashie if by the water.
Water bottles - always fill them up and pack them, one per person, before you go.
Insect repellent – stay ahead of the game and prevent bites with an all-natural insect repellent. It will mean less risk of itchy wakeful nights and a better sleep for the whole family, plus it minimises the risk of skin infections.
Soothing balm – if skin has been over exposed to sun and has that tell-tale redness and stingy feeling, or if the mossies got there before the repellent, then choose a soothing balm such as Nature's Care Paw Paw Balm. It's made with real paw paw and contains vitamin E, to calm and relieve the skin. Nature's Care Paw Paw Balm 30g, is priced $5.99 and is available from Woolworths and Priceline stores.
