It’s ironic that lurking beneath a crocodile’s skin is an oil said to remedy extremely dry skin.
Irony aside, it’s also just a little bit freaky sounding right? Crocodile fat in our beauty creams to relieve our own scaly skin?
But experts want us to snap out of our reptilian preconceptions because their research points to crocodile fat as a skincare ingredient that can help psoriasis, eczema, inflammation and irritation. Their fat contains a frightening number of naturally occurring skin healing ingredients – in particular skin-repairing, anti-oxidant-rich, vitamin E and A, joint soothing linoleic acid, cell-regenerating oleic acid, skin-softening sapogens and antiseptic terpines.
Used for centuries, crocodile oil has only recently been documented as a powerful skincare treatment for infections, irritations and skin conditions – most notably for the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.
