Black Willow Bark in makeup?
Have you ever heard of Black Willow bark?
Most of us probably not. It is found here in North America. Willow bark contains salicin and other aspirin-like compounds. It is used to treat pain and inflammation, but does not have the stomach-irritating or blood-thinning effects of aspirin. Now you say ok Nicole why does this matter to me? Glad you asked! Now, imagine that you get breakouts. You know those that are red, painful, and puffy? Now how would you like to have a cream that has Black Willow bark in it and Aloe (which is a moisturizer) for your face? Thinking that this may help heal you skin instead of making it worse. Now I’m not a Heath Nutritionist or doctor (I have taken a nutrition class & read a lot) but I think that that combo may help.
Well those 2 ingredients are found in Sweet Minerals Moisture Prep. Along with some other very good ingredients.
