a potent natural antioxidant (Tocopherols). Through scientific testing, the Meadowfoam seed oil has proven itself to be extraordinary skin care ingredient.   “Instrumental techniques such as x-ray microanalysis, scanning electron microscopy, and polarized light microscopy have shown penetration and structural repair   of hair. Transepidermal water loss and stratum corneum hydratin measurements 
has shown moisturizing benefits   on the skin”.

MAGNESIUM SULFATE
Magnesium is the second most abundant element in human cells and the fourth most important positively charged ion in the body. Magnesium, a major component of Epsom Salt, also helps to regulate the activity of more than 325 enzymes and performs a vital role in orchestrating many bodily functions such as the elimination of harmful toxins. Such benefits include:

*Raising the body's level of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.

*Offsetting excess levels of adrenaline generated by pressure and stress; magnesium ions relax and reduce irritability by lowering the affects of adrenaline.

*Helping to regulate the electrical functions that spark through miles of nerves.

*Lowering blood pressure.

*Increasing energy and stamina by encouraging the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy packets made in the cells.
