Care is essential for dry skin. However, it is recommended to resort to natural solutions 
- vegetable oils are full of vitamins, antioxidants and fats, which provide deep hydration to dry skin.

Below are some of the best natural choices for dry and very dry skin based on research.

Coconut oil: nature's gift for dry skin

Coconut oil 🥥 has been a staple in beauty products all over the world for centuries. Various communities used it in soaps to wash hair and skin and as a skin moisturizer. Coconut oil is definitely one of the best choices for dry skin.

  • Coconut oil is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory [1], which is especially beneficial for dry skin that can lead to irritated skin, rashes, redness, and inflammation.
  • Research shows that coconut oil can accelerate wound healing and increase collagen levels [2].
  • It effectively moisturizes even atopic skin and softens breakouts [3]. A 2013 study found that coconut oil helps improve skin hydration in children with atopic dermatitis [4]. With coconut oil, we will improve and strengthen the weakened skin barrier.
  • Coconut oil is also pleasant to use, as it absorbs well and softens dry skin.

Olive oil: an ancient treatment for dry skin

Did you know that the oldest olive tree in the world is 4000 years old? 😲 The benefits of olive oil have also been known to mankind for a long time - olive oil has been pressed for at least 8,000 years. It was already used by the ancient Greeks - in combination with waxes, it was used as a cleanser and moisturizer for the skin - olive oil was applied to the entire body and hair.

  • Olive oil helps restore dry, sun-damaged skin [5]. Some research even shows that using olive oil after sun exposure protects against cancer-causing cells [5].
  • Extremely rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fats and vitamins such as A, D, K and E, olive oil can help inhibit premature skin aging [6].
  • Applying pure olive oil directly to the skin is not always recommended - in the case of olive oil, it is better to use it in combination with other oils or natural ingredients. Therefore, we prefer to use natural products based on olive oil and intended for the care of dry skin.

Shea butter: an African secret for dry skin

Shea is native to West Africa, where it has been used for centuries as a moisturizer for skin – especially dry skin. With the help of shea butter, we not only nourish and moisturize the skin, but also naturally protect it from the sun, wind, heat and salt water 🌊.

  • Shea butter is an emollient – that is, it helps trap moisture in the skin [7], prevents it from drying out and maintains adequate moisture. When caring for dry skin, emollients are a must! Also for skin problems such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, etc.
  • As it stimulates the formation of collagen, it also helps with wrinkles, scars and burns. [8]
  • The use of shea butter is recommended for eczema and dermatitis, as well as insect bites. A 2015 study found that shea butter can help relieve the symptoms of dermatitis and eczema [9].
  • The components in shea butter have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties [11], which is especially beneficial for dry skin.

Plant waxes for dry skin

Plant waxes can also be of great help in caring for dry skin. Among them we find, for example, carnauba wax, wax myrtle fruit wax, sunflower seed wax and - the most commonly used - candelilla wax.🌵

  • Candelilla wax is obtained from a desert plant whose leaves and stems are coated with wax to protect themselves from the hot, dry desert air. Similarly, candelilla wax also protects and smoothes dry skin on the body and face and prevents moisture loss.
  • In addition to smoothing scaly, dry skin, candelilla wax also helps smooth wrinkles!

These are also the reasons why we decided to use these very ingredients in the development of our natural care ointment.

We didn't just rely on the research above, we made several versions of the ointment, which were then tested by people with very dry skin or atopic dermatitis.

Together, we came up with the version that has the most beneficial effect on dry and problematic skin!

Can you guess what we added to the ointment in addition to the oils and butters listed above?

Of course - activated charcoal powder. 😊

This is an ingredient that is all too often forgotten when caring for problematic skin.

This "black pearl" has been known to mankind for thousands of years (it was already used by the ancient Egyptians, for medical and beauty purposes) and is extremely welcome in products for the care of problematic and dry skin.

Particles of activated charcoal behave like microscopic magnets that bind pathogenic organisms and bacteria that cause inflammation and other skin problems.

Activated charcoal is the icing on the cake that can help dry skin finally regain its balance.

Observations of users with regular use of the ointment:

  • reduced feeling of skin tightness and itching sensation;
  • the skin is softer and smoother to the touch;
  • the skin is less sensitive to external influences (cold, dry air, aggressive cleaners);
  • dry and cracked skin regenerates faster;
  • the skin is moisturized and nourished;
  • softens hard skin (elbows, soles).

A symphony of vegetable butters and oils with a magical scent that nourishes and softens even dry skin.

The ointment can be used for the whole body, face and also for the lips. It is applied as needed, and for very dry skin it is recommended to use it at least twice a day, especially in the evening before going to bed.

Karbonoir care ointment is 100% natural and does not contain preservatives, sulfates, silicones, parabens, PEG, gluten and SLS.


Natural cosmetics made with carefully selected high quality ingredients based on COCONUT ACTIVATED CHARCOAL

Activated charcoal is one of the most absorbent substances in the world - it binds to bacteria and dirt and thus removes them effectively, which is highly desirable if we want to remove plaque and prevent gingivitis. Activated charcoal is also used in medicine because it is so effective in removing toxins. Therefore, it is also ideal to provide your sensitive skin with additional protection against bacteria.
