This fast-absorbing formula packs three powerhouse ingredients that support longer, stronger, smoother nails. Nutrient-rich Pomegranate Seed Oil promotes collagen production, aids in skin regeneration, and contains enough antioxidants to provide anti-aging benefits. Horsetail has traditionally been used to improve brittle nails, while anecdotal evidence supports the use of this silicate-rich herb to improve nail health and diminish brittleness. Finally, Myrrh essential oil promotes less ridged growth, and further strengthens nails.
Apply a tiny amount of cuticle oil to each bare nail bed (about one drop per hand) & allow to sit undisturbed for several minutes to partially absorb. Gently massage remaining oil into cuticles and nails, allowing oil to finish absorbing. Works best on damp skin with open pores, such as after a shower or bath.
What's in the Bottle
Myrrh has significant anecdotal evidence suggesting it promotes stronger, less brittle and less ridged nail growth, although reliable research on external use is scant. These properties are proposed to stem from myrrh's moisturizing properties and ability to combat bacteria and fungus, but more research is needed to confirm and quantify such claims.
Horsetail is high in silica and antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. It has traditionally been used around the world (internally & topically) to stop hair loss and improve nail growth. While some research exists supporting the efficacy orally ingested silica in improving hair and nail growth, and anecdotal reports support the use of topically applied horsetail in promoting less-ridged, less-brittle nail growth, there has been little to no research into either the efficacy of topically applied silica or topically applied horsetail
Pomegranate Oil is a highly hydrating oil with a medium absorption rate, primarily used for its softening, regenerating and protecting qualities. It is rich in polyphenols, which have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and DNA repair effects; deeply moisturizing essential fatty acids; and antioxidants, including a high dose of Vitamin C.
Sweet Almond Oil is an incredibly popular carrier oil because it penetrates deeply with a non-greasy finish. High in Vitamin A, D & E, essential fatty acids and zinc, it is antioxidant, strongly anti-inflammatory, reduces skin irritation, and reduces the appearance of scars. It is highly emollient and slightly occlusive.
Olive Oil is emollient and occlusive, meaning it softens and moisturizes within skin and forms a barrier on top of skin preventing moisture loss and protecting the skin from the surrounding environment. It is rich in squalene, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and rich in Vitamins A, D, E and K
Jojoba Oil is chemically so similar to sebum (skin’s natural oil) that the body responds to it as though it were sebum. This allows jojoba oil to penetrate quickly, easily and deeply into skin, pulling its humectant, (selectively) antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties with it.
