It was first discovered and used by the Indigenous to heal snake bites and condition skin and hair. Today it's well known for its abilities to heal acne, moisturize skin and create a protective barrier from pollution. It even contains a small amount of UV rays. The most popular benefit is its ability to protect collagen and elastin in your skin. Along with these many benefits it also provides the skin with the following vitamins;
