Shea Butter boosts skin moisture, it works as an emollient that softens and hydrates skin.

Cocao butter is a decent source of vitamin E, which benefits your body in many ways. Vitamin E supports vision, reproduction, and the health of your brain, skin, and blood. Cocoa butter contains a high amount of fatty acids, which make it well-suited as a primary ingredient in skin cream.
Almond Oil improves skin's overall appearance and luminosity, almond oil also contains some vitamin A, also known as retintol. “This can help even out skin tone, texture, and prevent wrinkles,” says Rabach, making it a more natural solution to a fresh, brightened complexion.
Coconut oil helps bolster your skin's protective barrier layer, trapping moisture inside and keeping skin supple and hydrated. Reduces inflammation. Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory properties, making it beneficial for irritated, chafed skin. Increases collagen production.
Frankincense oil is a natural astringent. This means that it's good for skin care as it can help heal skin imperfections and conditions like acne and wounds.
