Safety of Essential Oils

Safety

All the oils used in the body mask have a good safety profile. None are irritant to the skin at the concentrations used. Risk of sensitisation or an allergic reaction is negligible and no oil is photo toxic, carcinogenic or teratogenic. The following is a list of the Essential oils used in the mask and their benefits in brief. Within the mask the oils impart a combined synergistic anti-bacterial, deodorizing and cleansing property.

The essential oil mix in the mask helps to dissolve the bond between the dead skin cells and the healthy skin layer beneath. Thus, it helps removal of this dead skin layer on peeling (safe exfoliating).

Benefits

The essential oil mix also acts as a solvent to dissolve the excessive oil(sebum) on the skin and its removal off the skin and deeper layers on peeling of the mask.

In addition to the physical actions of the mask in binding with the dead skin cells,plugs in pores and blackheads, the mask is a unique delivery vehicle for the essential oils with which it is fortified.The mask is designed to deliver its active ingredients(Vitamin E, Tea tree oil and other essential oils). As the gel dries,it releases the active essential oils in to the skin.

These penetrate into the skin with relative ease at an effective and safe concentration for the required period of time to aid the eradication of skin bacteria,condition and moisturize the skin and reduce any redness within the pores.

The plastic film that forms as the mask dries forms an occlusive layer over the skin and enhances the penetration of the essential oils to the site of action for a much better performance than would be achieved by just applying the oils on to the skin.

In addition to imparting beneficial actions on the skin the essential oil mix also generates a state of relaxation and well being during the drying process.

Tea Tree Oil is widely known to help eradicate bacteria. DEVINAS CHOICE® PEEL OFF BODY MASK contains 2% TEA TREE OIL and is a sufficient concentration to help eradicate spot causing bacteria.

Tea Tree Oil is extracted by Steam distillation of the leaf of a tree called Melaleuca alternifolia which is found in Australia. Tree Tea oil is an all Natural product and is used in the manufacture of many healthcare products including Shampoos, mouthwash, Face wash, Creams and Toothpaste.

The safety of Tea Tree oil in these products is well documented.
The oil itself has been used in the past to treat Acne, Athelete`s foot and as a Deodorant.

The absence of side effects when compared to a lot of Chemical based antiseptics has made Tea Tree oil very popular in recent times.

The Anaerobic Bacterium Propionibacterium acnes is linked to the cause of Acne. This Bacterium can populate the pore of your skin and grow there. The Bacterium secretes enzymes that can break down dead Skin and other proteins and produce chemicals such as Fatty acids that can be Immunogenic (they can produce a local allergic reaction).

This can lead to over growth of other Bacteria such as Sthaphylococcus aureus that is normally resident in and on the skin. This process leads to a blocked, inflammed pore that is called a MICROCOMEDONE and can lead to an Acne lesion.

This is where Tea Tree oil comes in. The oil has a strong antiseptic action on the Bacterium Propionibacterium acnes and can destroy the Bacterial population on the skin and within pores.

This natural Antimicrobial action of Tea Tree oil is very strong at around 2% strength (as in the mask) and there is no Bacterial resistance against it as is found to be the case with a lot of Antibiotics used to treat Acne. A concentration of 2% when used in an occlusive mask (as in Devina`s Choice) is safe and effective.

Any stronger usage can lead to irritation, redness and dryness of the skin.

In addition to the physical actions of the mask in binding with the dead skin cells,plugs in pores and blackheads,the mask is a unique delivery vehicle for the essential oils with which it is fortified.The mask is designed to deliver its active ingredients(Vitamin E,Tea tree oil and other essential oils).

As the gel dries,it releases the active essential oils in to the skin.These penetrate into the skin with relative ease at an effective and safe concentration for the required period of time to aid the eradication of skin bacteria,condition and moisturize the skin and reduce any redness within the pores.

The plastic film that forms as the mask dries forms an occlusive layer over the skin and enhances the penetration of the essential oils to the site of action for a much better performance than would be achieved by just applying the oils on to the skin.

In addition to imparting beneficial actions on the skin the essential oil mix also generates a state of relaxation and well being during the drying process.
