Nail Repairing Oil:
In a busy lifestyle it’s just too easy to neglect the nails and cuticles, and yet we daily subject them to so much trauma – washing dishes, the weather, and the necessitated constant hand-washing and exposure to chemical sanitisers in recent times. All of this can have a drying effect on the nails and cuticles, resulting in dry, damaged cuticles and weak,brittle, flaky and breakage-prone nails.
What is the Nail and Cuticle?
The cuticle is a part of the skin which sits above the growth matrix (nail bed ) to protect it. The nail bed produces the nail plate, the visible part of the nail, and it’s made from a hard protein called keratin (same as the hair). If not cared for properly, the nail plate can dehydrate and become dry, brittle or damaged. The natural oils the body produces to care for the nail plate also tends to become less as we age, which can result in ridges, slow growth, and nails make the nails more susceptible to damage.
Why Use Our Natural Nail Repairing Oil?
Nail care doesn’t need to be a chore, and our natural Nail Repairing Oil takes just a few seconds to apply. Since oils are absorbed into the nails much slower than water it keeps them more flexible rather than soft. Plus oil evaporates or escapes much slower than water which helps to retain hydration. Our Nail Repairing Oil is an elixir of natural and essential oils specifically chosen for their ability to protect, reinforce, repair and regenerate the nails and cuticles.
Nail Repairing Oil is a perfectly balanced blend of sweet almond oil, olive oil, argan oil, lavender oil, lemon oil, orange oil and vitamin E.
How Does Sweet Almond Oil Benefit Our Nail Repairing Oil?
Sweet almond oil is soothing and moisturising and is loaded with antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamins A, B1, B2, and B6, as well as having one of the highest levels of vitamin E. Non-irritating, it nourishes and coats the cuticles and nail plate, protecting against cracking, peeling, dryness and breakage. It is a perfect lubricant to plump the cuticles and promote strong healthy nails.
How Does Olive Oil Benefit Our Nail Repairing Oil?
Jam-packed with vitamin E, olive oil is extremely healing and moisturising, and will soften hardened dehydrated cuticles. It helps in the process of calcification and thus promotes nail growth, in addition to strengthening brittle nails and making them more flexible to deter breakage.
How Does Argan Oil Benefit Our Nail Repairing Oil?
Rich in vitamin E and fatty acids, Argan oil is recognised for its amazing benefits for the skin, hair and nails. It helps to moisturise the cuticle, and smooth, fortify and regenerate the nail plate, providing strength and protecting against moisture loss and sun damage. It is the mainstay of many of the nail and cuticle oils found in nail salons and is the preferred oil by many manicurists.
How Does Lavender Oil Benefit Our Nail Repairing Oil?
Lavender oil is soothing and hydrating, and helps to moisturise and fortify the nails and cuticles, reinforcing strength and preventing further damage. It stimulates blood flow, thus ensuring the delivery of more nutrients to the cuticles, in addition to promoting keratin growth, thus encouraging longer, stronger nails.
How Does Lemon Oil Benefit Our Nail Repairing Oil?
Lemon oil also stimulates blood flow to provide improved nourishment to the nail bed and cuticles and helps to moisturise and fortify the nails and cuticles, eradicating dryness, peeling and addressing any damage, in addition to promoting growth. Its antibacterial and antifungal properties help to protect against infections. Lemon oil has a natural lightning effect and can reduce discolouration, add gloss and shine and eliminate dull-looking nails, as well as improving the smoothness of the nail.
How Does Orange Oil Benefit Our Nail Repairing Oil?
Very similar to lemon oil, orange oil works as a stimulant, increasing circulation and promoting growth. Likewise, it also possesses strong antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties to deter and treat any infection. It moisturises and fortifies the nails and cuticles and deters brittleness and promotes strong, healthy nails.
How Does Vitamin E Benefit Our Nail Repairing Oil?
Vitamin E is an antioxidant and soluble nutrient which is deeply hydrating and healing with strong antibacterial and antiviral properties. It increases blood flow to the nails, cuticles and surrounding area to increase the delivery of nutrients essential for healthy nail growth. Vitamin E repairs and protects against damage and provides a protective barrier. It can reverse damage to the nails and eliminate yellowing of the nails, and reduce ridging and brittleness.
How to Apply Natural Nail Repairing Oil
Apply a couple of drops to the nails and cuticles, massaging it in well. Don’t forget to rub any excess oil into the hands since the oils have great benefits for the skin too.
For best results soak the hands in warm water for a few minutes before application.
