Anti-aging & Skin Care Bonuses of Organic Palm Oil- Part I

Organic Palm oil is one of nature's purest and strongest anti-aging ingredients.  It is most commonly used in organic body care soaps and shampoos because it easily removes dirt and oil from skin and hair. This botanical oil also contains a refatting agent that replenishes skin and hair's natural oils.  It is also used in organic skin care products specifically for its wonderful anti-aging properties, as well as for its ability to moisturize.  
One of the most nourishing and beneficial anti-aging properties contained in organic Palm Oil is its innate beta carotene.  This powerful antioxidant attacks free radicals that lead to aging of the skin by destroying healthy skin cells.  Additionally, organic Palm Oil is a bonus source of Vitamins A, C, and E, which also contain strong free-radical-fighting properties.

Perhaps the finest anti-aging component of organic Palm Oil is its rare toctrienols, members of the Vitamin E family.  The most commonly found type of Vitamin E, tocopherol, is well known for its benefits in treating many common skin ailments. Vitamin E is a another strong antioxidant  that aids in fighting free radicals that damage the skin and cause fine lines and wrinkles.
Interestingly, Dr. Betty Kamen, PhD, aserts that toctrienols are a more powerful antioxidant compared to tocopherols.  These anti-aging miracle workers have been proven to be measurably more effective in preventing damage from free radicals and the effects of aging that follow. When Palm Oil is used topically in organic skin care cleansers, soaps, moisturizers and other products, its toctrienols penetrate the skin's layers deeply to speed healing and protection.
