Not all ingredients are equal
You have probably heard the phrase “you are what you eat”. We at nudco think that not only healthy nutrient food provides the foundation for a healthy body. We think that it also matters what you put on your skin, especially when it comes to your intimate areas.
That is why we use various superfoods in our pleasure care products. If you are not yet familiar with our oat-based intimate care goodies, here are listed all the superfood ingredients, such as caprylic/capric triglyceride, blackcurrant seed oil, and essential oils, that we have picked just for you and your body.
Caprylic/capric triglyceride: natural alternative
Caprylic or capric triglyceride is a compound of glycerin and naturally occurring fatty acids from coconut oil. Compared to synthetic chemicals found in topical skin products, caprylic triglycerides are usually found as more natural alternatives. In order to obtain the purest possible natural version of the products, a chemical process must be used to separate the oily liquids. Their high fat content, structure and antioxidant properties make them particularly useful in our massage and body oil and intimate oil, without causing a sticky feeling on your skin after usage.
Caprylic triglyceride helps smooth the skin and acts as an antioxidant. The emollients in caprylic triglycerides form a protective layer on the skin that binds moisture and prevents the skin from drying out. On top of that, caprylic triglyceride is packed with antioxidants that help preserve your skin and help you feel younger. These natural antioxidants help your skin to fight against toxins you are exposed to daily in your environment.
Blackcurrant seed oil: powerful antioxidant
Compared to blueberries, blackcurrants have double the amount of antioxidants like anthocyanins. In fact, according to studies, blackcurrant seed oil is also a natural source of antioxidants, gamma-linolenic acids, Vitamin E and Vitamin A.
Blackcurrant seed oil contains gamma-linolenic acid, which is a fatty acid that suppresses the inflammatory mediators to calm the skin and reduce redness. It also includes fatty acids, such as omega 3, 6 and 9, that nourish skin cells without making your skin feel greasy. So if your skin has been traumatized by sun or you suffer from skin condition (you name it), quercetin derivatives in blackcurrant seed oil act as a treatment for them thanks to their anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects.
Because it is rich in gemma-linolenic acid, it is ideal for improving skin elasticity. It also reduces wrinkles, general dryness and promotes rapid skin cell regeneration and collagen synthesis. According to some doctors, essential fatty acids can help moderate menopausal symptoms and alleviate PMS symptoms.
Blackcurrant seed oil contains the most powerful skin vitamins. In numbers, it has over 34% alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E), which helps reduce dark spots and protect your skin, as well as Vitamin A that promotes natural moisturising and maintains healthy skin. Just for this reason, we have also added extra Vitamin E to our intimate oil and personal moisturiser/lubricant.
Essential oils: aromatherapeutic booster
The essential oils are 100% natural, concentrated plant extracts and can be used as ready-to-use massage oil blends or a base for mixing your own aromatherapy massage oil, if desired. Many essential oils have been used for nearly 6,000 years to improve one‘s health or mood. For example, orange oil seems to have an anxiety-reducing effect whereas lavender has relaxing effects.
The benefits of essential oils and massage are becoming more and more visible. In fact, according to a study made in 2005, essential oils have been found to have varying degrees of antimicrobial activity and have been shown to reduce heart disease and several skin conditions.
Since bodily tensions, mood, stress and menstrual pain all play crucial roles in sexual wellness, we have added grapefruit essential oil, sweet orange, rosemary, mandarin, cedarwood and lavender to our unique pleasure care formula, which are all suitable for intimate areas too. Especially our massage and body oil is designed specifically for relaxation.
