Benefits of Organic Sal Butter in Dry Skin Care

Updated: Apr 6, 2023

Sal butter is one of the best emollients in dry and sensitive skin care. In Ancient Ayurveda, it was used to treat dry skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and Psoriasis. It comes from the seeds of the Sal also known as the Shorea robusta tree.

It is composed of various chemical compounds that are beneficial for the skin. Here are some of the main chemical components of Sal butter and how they contribute to its skincare benefits:

  1. Fatty acids: Sal butter is rich in fatty acids, such as oleic acid, stearic acid, and linoleic acid. These fatty acids help to nourish and moisturize the skin, improve its texture and reduce dryness. Oleic acid is known for its ability to penetrate deeply into the skin and provide long-lasting hydration.

  2. Phytosterols: Sal butter also contains phytosterols, which are plant-based compounds that help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These proteins are essential for maintaining the skin's elasticity and firmness, which also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  3. Tocopherols: Tocopherols, also known as Vitamin E, are antioxidants that help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals can cause oxidative stress, which can lead to premature ageing and other skin issues. By neutralizing these free radicals, tocopherols keep the skin youthful and healthy.

  4. Triterpenoids: Triterpenoids in Sal butter reduce redness, irritation, and inflammation, strengthen the skin barrier and prevent trans epidermal water loss.

  5. Unsaponifiables: Unsaponifiables also provide the skin with moisturization benefits, create a protective barrier against pollutants and potential irritants and promote wound healing.

These compounds work together to provide a range of skin benefits that include moisturisation and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
