Lecithin in skin cream for troubled skin conditions

Lecithin can be found in soybeans, wheat germ, corn, egg yolks, fish, legumes, and peanuts. It is a phospholipid composed of the amino acid choline and inositol. These are fats that are essential in all of the body’s cells, playing an important role in the function of cell membranes, regulating nutrients that enter and exit the cell.

Lecithin is used in Active Manuka Honey cream to act as an emulsifier, binding the oil and honey in a stable cream emulsion, it also helps to hydrate, replenish and repair the skin due to its essential fatty acid content.

When it is used in skin care products, or as an active additive in cosmetics, lecithin is used for softening, toning, and moisturizing, which will promote the restoration of the barrier function of the skin to prevent moisture loss from the deeper layers of the complexion. Lecithin is especially effective in combination with vitamins A, D, F, B1 and B6.

Lecithin promotes the deeper penetration of fat and biologically active substances such as Manuka honey into the epidermis. It also reduces inflammation and irritation in the skin – important in the case of eczema and dermatitis - stimulates cell regeneration, improves skin texture, and prevents the formation of wrinkles. The lecithin is an antioxidant, which also protects the skin from the negative effects of free radical damage.

Lecithin also works well as a thickener, stabilizer, and preservative, making it useful in a range of beauty products. Lecithin also helps fight dry and damaged skin, working effectively as a moisturizer, it can help to treat conditions such as eczema.

Thanks to these benefits, lecithin can be found in a range of beauty products, including cosmetics, moisturizers, and lotions. When used in conjunction with other ingredients, such as vitamins, antioxidants, and botanicals, lecithin can create healthier, softer, better moisturized skin with regular use.
