Make Time for Some Lime

User Rating:  / 0

The disbelief that people still have for natural skin care products may possibly be due to the fact that many of the ingredients are just SO common. These common household ingredients can’t POSSIBLY make a difference, can they?

Take the ever-common lime. You would be hard-pressed to find someone who can’t draw or describe what a lime is, unlike more exotic ingredients like Jojoba Oil. How can something you’ve used for cooking, in your drinks and perhaps in your beer … how can the lime even be that effective for skin care?

Lime actually has 3 very specific benefits for your skin:

  1. The Natural Medicines Comprehensive database indicates that limes are great antiseptics. The high acidic content actually prevents infection by inhibiting bacterial growth.
  2. The very specific citrus scent produced by expressed lime oil also make them optimal as a fragrance component, which means artificial chemicals do not have to be included, in order to provide your skin care product with a fresh clean scent.
  3. Limes are also used to even out skin tones and discolouration, especially in susceptible areas like your knees or armpits. The natural juices have whitening properties that can be as effective as chemically-heavy products.

The only thing people have to be careful of is that fair-skinned individuals can suffer some photosensitivity. A Japanese study published in Medline entitled “A study of the phototoxicity of lemon oil” has indicated that in the presence of light, lime oil can cause some sensitivity, but only in concentrated amounts. As long as you practice moderation in your application, adverse reactions can very easily be avoided.

Don’t fret! 1 Skin’s Lime Thyme Body Wash uses a gentle amount of lime to ensure that it does not dry the skin and allows fair-skinned individuals to enjoy the product, as well. Of course, we’ve done our research to ensure that the products we produce for you leads to a better, healthier you!
