The big seven!

Cocoa Butter:

Cocoa butter contains a high amount of fatty acids, which make it well-suited as a primary ingredient in skin cream. Fatty acids help to hydrate the skin. The fat in cocoa butter creates a protective barrier that holds in moisture and prevents your skin from drying.

Shea Butter:

This ingredient is often found in scar-healing products, because its rich fatty-acid levels help to soften scar tissue and may speed up the scar-healing process. 

Kokum Butter:

Kokum butter is often used topically to alleviate skin inflammation caused by cuts, burns, and ulcerations. Some experts theorize that the moisturizing nature of the butter — along with the antioxidant and antimicrobial capacity of the compounds found in kokum fruit — may be the reason behind its strong potential for soothing various inflammatory skin conditions

Coconut Oil:

In addition to its effects on acne and inflammation, applying coconut oil to your skin can also help keep it hydrated. In addition to keeping your skin hydrated as well as improving wound healing, its antimicrobial properties may also prevent infection, one of the major risk factors that can complicate the healing process 

Olive Oil:

Olive oil does have some reported benefits to the skin. According to the International Olive Council, olive oil has many vitamins, including A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E.

Vitamin E:

Because vitamin E oil can moisturize and soothe dry, flaky skin, it may help to relieve the burning and itching that result from a tattoo.

Keeping skin well moisturized helps to prevent dry skin, and prevent symptoms such as itchiness.
