Body Care: Skin Nourishment by Salts of The Seas

We have discovered the creams and other products by Salts of The Seas by accident, but we are really glad we came across their stall. Encouraged by the presentation of the body scrub, we bought a little sack of their goodies: just a little bit of the scrub applied on our hands (and washed with water after a little while) made them silky and soft. It was quite an amazing and instant result!
The products by Salts of The Seas (a Texas based company) are supposed to contain Dead Sea Salts, Organic French Sea Salts. Natural Oils and Extracts. They are aimed at dry, very dry and cracked skin.

The little bag we bought: Body Scrub, Goat's Milk & Honey Creme, Heeling Foot Creme, Nourishing Lip Balm Sealer, Cuticream Nail & Cuticle Moisturizer, a small pumice stone and a plastic spoon to be used with the creams. 
Pumice stone and the spoon - Quite a nice addition to all the goodies

The Body Scrub (no picture) was really great - was - as we used it quite quickly as a pampering addition to the bath time  - to treat our feet and heels, with really great results. The consistency of the scrub, enriched with the Sea Salts, noticeably improved the condition of the skin and made the feet smooth and soft. Great product!

Heeling Foot Creme complements the Body Scrub but can be used on its own too. Besides the feet, it can also be applied to elbows and hands. The cream is absorbed by the skin quite quickly, moistens it and  does not leave any greasy film.

Some of the ingredients:
Natural Oils & Extracts:
  • Beeswax;
  • Sunflower oil - smoothing properties;
  • Soybean oil - contains a lot of  linoleic acid which restores the skin moisture level;
  • Shea butter - good water-binding properties;
  • Aloe barbadensis - known for its skin healing properties (among others);
  • Hydrolyzed silk - moisturizing and protective properties. 

Nourishing Lip Balm Sealer - good to treat chapped lips. It smooths the cracked skin and makes the lips look much better.
The balm contains only natural ingredients:
Castor oil, Palm kernel Oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, aloe extract,
Carnauba wax (called also 'Brazil wax' as it is derived from the leaves of the plant which grows only in some parts of Brazil) - hypoallergenic and emollient properties
Candelilla wax - made of the Candelilla shrub leaves - a plant native to Northern Mexico.

Goat's Milk & Honey Creme - quite a beneficial body moisturizer. I tried to use it as a face cream too but some parts of my face did not like it. The allergy was not caused by the Creme fragrance which is quite neutral. Most likely it was some of the other ingredients - my face is quite picky :).
The Creme contains of (among thers - see the label below): Shea butter,  soybean oil, sunflower oil, hydrolyzed silk, Aloe barbadensis and goat milk extract.

Cuticream Nail & Cuticle Moisturiser - I am trying to put it on my nails (when they are not polished of course) and cuticles every day. Hopefully the treatment will strengthen the nails - the cream seems to be working fine but I have not been using it long enough to see any remarkable results. However, right now I can tell  the cuticles are in a better shape already.

If you happen to be at The North Texas Irish Festival next year, look around, maybe you will find the stall by Salts of The Seas there. It is worth stopping by and trying their products.
