Don’t just cleanse your skin – protect and nourish your body’s largest organ with Frownies Honey Citrus Body Wash!
Your skin is your first line of defense for your immune system. Healthy skin provides a physical barrier against the outside world. Healthy skin is smooth, hydrated, and glowing; While dry, cracked skin anywhere on your body can allow for bacteria, viruses, or fungi to get in causing infection or serious illness.
Take your morning routine beyond simply cleaning your skin and begin hydrating and healing right in the shower with Frownies Citrus Honey Body Wash loaded with thoughtful, healthy ingredients!
Organic Aloe Vera - Unlike other body washes where the main ingredient is water, our body wash starts with an aloe vera juice base. Aloe vera is known for its skin healing properties. It is widely used to soothe irritated, itchy skin and aid in the healing of minor cuts and abrasions. Aloe vera is easily absorbed into the skin, making it ideal for all skin types from oily to dry.
Organic Apple Juice - Apple juice contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which is known to have multiple skin-related benefits. AHA acts as a gentle exfoliant and helps to remove dead surface cells from the skin improving the overall tone and texture. AHA in apple juice is also thought to brighten skin and promote collagen production.
Willow Bark - Willow bark has a host of skin benefits as it is rich in salicin, the compound that salicylic acid is derived from. The salicin in willow bark is a potent anti-inflammatory and reduces irritation and redness on the skin. Willow bark is also a gentle exfoliator and antimicrobial which helps leave your skin clean and radiant.
Honey - Honey is a superior natural moisturizer and a powerful antimicrobial. Honey is unique in that it can penetrate deep into the skin’s layers due to its specific enzymes; therefore, it hydrates from within by drawing moisture past the skin’s surface. As an antimicrobial and gentle exfoliant, it clears the skin of dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria. It cleans pores and reduces acne and blemishes all over the body.
Citrus Essential Oils - The essential oils of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, and mandarine not only provide natural fragrance, but these essential oils are known for their mood-boosting properties. Citrus essential oils are thought to decrease stress, ease anxiety, and increase energy levels – The perfect way to start your day! These specific essential oils are also known to be natural antimicrobial agents
Vitamin E - Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that is known to reduce free-radical damage to the skin caused by UV sun exposure. It may improve the appearance of stretch marks and scars.
Just as important as what’s IN our body wash, is what we left OUT! Frownies Citrus Honey Body Wash is free from synthetic fragrance, toxic preservatives, and harsh surfactants that strip the skin of natural oils and moisture.
