Oasis Moisture Balm Gentle Face Moisturizer – This rich and creamy fragrance free gentle face moisturizer is enriched with nutrient oils and Shea Butter. This gentle moisturizer contains skin soothing nutrients like avocado oil, aloe, and Shea butter to help heal and sooth your sensitive skin. Along with VitaBalm, this is a must for dry skin. Use as a day cream over VitaBalm and under your makeup or use as a night cream over VitaBalm. So rich, thick and effective that there is no need to keep reapplying, yet it leaves no greasy residue. This lotion is non-comedogenic (does not clog pores) and made for the face, but I use it all over (dry knees, elbows, arms, legs).  My “go to” product and a must for dry, winter weather. I keep a bottle of this gentle fragrance free face moisturizer on my desk, in my purse, in the bathroom and kitchen so my hands are never without it. It replenishes moisture, leaving your skin feeling soft and incredibly smooth.

Ingredients: Water, Butyrospermum Parkii (shea butter), Limnanthes Alba (meadowfoam seed) Oil, Persea Gratissima (avocado) Oil, Cocos Nucifera (coconut) Oil, Vegetable Glycerin USP, Emulsifying Wax NF, Vitis Vinifera (grapeseed) Oil, Stearic Acid (vegetable source), Aloe Barbadensis, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Hydroymethylglycinate Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol
Ingredients explained:*
  • Shea Butter is extracted from the fruit of the karite tree and is the main oil in this gentle face moisturizer. Shea butter helps in restoring elasticity to the skin and is know for its anti-inflammatory properties. It contains high amounts of Vitamin A and E. It is also non-comedogenic. Shea butter is a great first oil to have in a gentle lotion to soothe your sensitive skin.
  • Meadowfoam Seed Oil is extracted from the seed of the meadowfoam plant which was developed as an agricultural crop for its oil in the late 1950’s. The flowers of this plant look like the white foam blowing on the ocean. Meadowfoam seed oil stays on the skin, forming a moisture barrier to prevent moisture loss and a perfect oil for a gentle face moisturizer.
  • Avocado Oil is from the pulpy green fruit (not the seed) of the avocado. It is a rich oil that is easily absorbed and deeply penetrates dry skin. It is high in Vitamins A,D and E as well as lecithin. It makes a great hypoallergenic lotion for people with sensitive skin.
  • Coconut Oil is obtained from the inner flesh of the coconut. This oil is great for dry and flaking skin. It is a conditioning agent and very beneficial for chapped skin. It is not a know irritant and makes a great oil to have in a gentle face moisturizer.
  • Vegetable Glycerin USP is usually derived from corn, but not always. A by-product of soap manufacturing, glycerin has strong humectant properties and emollient qualities, which means its job in this gentle fragrance free face moisturizer is to help soften the skin and help it retain moisture by absorbing moisture from the air. Retaining moisture helps to keep skin looking healthy and in its best condition.
  • Emulsifying Wax NF. The blending of these waxes and the type of waxes used are proprietary (protected under trade secret laws) but are necessary to keep emulsions from separating into their liquid and oil components.
  • Grapeseed Oil is an abundant by product of wine making. Pomace is a highly concentrated source of linoleic acid, which is essential for the health of the skin and cell membranes. Grapeseed oil is very rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins. It also contains antioxidants and is non-comedogenic (will not clog pores) making it a great addition to this gentle balm. Grapeseed Oil locks in moisture without leaving you feeling greasy, because it is easily absorbed by the skin
  • Stearic Acid is derived from vegetable sources –generally palm bases. Some stearic acid is derived from animal fat, but Patricia Allison is a cruelty free company, so rest assured our source for stearic acid is always from vegetable sources. Stearic Acid gives this gentle face moisturizer its pearliness.
  • Aloe the “first aid plant” expressed from the leaf of the aloe historically is know to improve wound healing and skin inflammation. It also softens the skin and is a great addition to this hypoallergenic balm.
  • Xanthan Gum, produced from corn sugar used to thicken, emulsify and stabilize this gentle fragrance free face moisturizer.
  • Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate Phenoxyethanol is a preservative that helps prevent this fragrance free face moisturizer from growing bacteria that you definitely do not want growing in any gentle lotion.
  • Caprylyl Glycol is palm/coconut oil derived and used as a skin conditioner and preservative.
Oasis Moisture Balm Gentle Face Moisturizer is a fragrance free face moisturizer that also contains no added dyes or parabens and is sold by a cruelty free company.

    The scent is wonderful & it feels great on my skin. However, I would not recommend it for dry skin unless it was used in addition to another moisturizer.
