Your skin is an outward reflection of what’s going on inside your body.
Most people tend to lather creams, lotions and potions on their skin, put expensive treatments on their hair in the hope to bring it back to life and use nail products full of chemicals to strengthen their nails, without ever realising that most of these problems come from within.
Omega 3’s are essential nutrients that most people in western society are deficient in. This is due to the poor dietary choices and the consumption of highly processed foods.
Lack of these essential fatty acids (EFAs) in your diet from fish or plant sources can lead to significant health problems. The organ that often suffers most is the skin.
Omega 3 deficiency can cause dry, itchy, flaky skin. It can lead to fingertips that crack and hair to become dry, tangled and lack luster.
Just like an engine needs a balanced supply of oil, so does your skin! Your skin needs a regular intake of omega 3 and omega 6 fats to maintain its integrity and stay supple and moisturised.
Udo’s Oil is specially formulated to contain the perfect ratio of 2:1:1 of omega 3,6 & 9 fatty acids. These EFAs are essential for the optimum health of each cell in our body as they are the building blocks to each cell membrane. Healthy fats found in oily fish, avocados, eggs, olive oil provide the foundation for long term skin health with the added benefit of knowing you are nourishing your joints, brain and heart.

It is antibacterial, anti-fungal, hormone balancing and helps the absorption of vitamins A and E which are essential for the healthy growth of skin, hair and nails. It’s a win-win!
