Coconut oil has many benefits as a natural extract but at Nakin we do not believe that it has a place in facial skincare, and this is because it is a very fatty ingredient and is too greasy for the face area, plus it can clog pores with its comedogenic nature. As it is such a fatty ingredient it tends to find its way into lots of facial skincare products, however, at Nakin all of our natural skincare is free of coconut oil and this includes our Active Dew Face Cream. Our Active Dew Cream is a moisturiser for drier skin types, including dry skin, combination dry skin, normal skin and sensitive skin.
Coconut oil has had so much good press in recent years that many of us do not question it when we find it in a face cream. This has been changing in recent years as natural skincare becomes more and more evolved and sophisticated. We never use coconut oil in our face products, even though it can have an immediate hydrating and comforting feel. Instead, we use much higher quality plant oils and extracts, which are able to hydrate and nourish skin without the greasiness.
Our coconut oil free Active Dew Face Cream for normal to dry skin contains many high-quality nourishing ingredients, such as shea butter and plant-based jojoba oil, to provide your skin with long-lasting hydration. Shea butter helps to protect the skin from environmental damage while providing moisture and reducing inflammation. Jojoba oil is a natural emollient that helps restore the barrier of your skin to lock in hydration and keep out any irritating agents like allergens or pollutants. It also works to balance oil levels, preventing both dryness and excess shine.
The cream has a unique blend of botanical oils, including sunflower seed oil, argan oil, and baobab oil, which all work together to give you softer and more supple skin. Sunflower seed oil is particularly high in omega-6 essential fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation and restore the skin’s barrier function. Baobab oil contains gamma linolenic acid to help smooth wrinkles and improve skin elasticity. Argan helps protect against free radicals while retaining moisture and preventing dehydration, while jojoba oil also has antioxidant properties that keep skin looking youthful and healthy.
To top it off, our coconut oil free face cream for dry skin includes hyaluronic acid to hydrate and calm inflamed or irritated skin. Hyaluronic acid is an effective moisturiser with plumping properties and works with the plant oils to soothe dryness and any redness associated with dry skin. They also help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Please note that although this face cream is free of coconut oil, it may contain some coconut derivatives as part of its emulsifying blend.
Our Active Dew Face Cream is the perfect solution for those looking for a high-quality moisturiser.
