Flaxseed: Superfood for the skin

Flaxseed oil is derived from a beautiful blue-flowering flax plant and has been found to be a superfood for our skin! It is one of the key ingredients found in our WOTNOT baby lotion and has some superpowers that are pretty impressive!

The oil, which is pressed from the seeds contains a high amount of omega 3 fatty acid which can usually only be obtained from our food, especially oily fish. Omega 3 is essential for normal skin and body function but cannot be produced naturally by our bodies. Omega 3 applied directly to the skin has been found to protect our skin from the elements by increasing the natural oils in our skin, leaving it soft and protecting it from irritants.

This makes our WOTNOT baby lotion an ideal part of your baby’s bath time routine, after bath time treat your baby to a massage with the lotion to lock in the moisture from the bath and keep their skin supple and protected.

There is even some evidence to suggest that flaxseed will help to minimise the free radicals that are known to cause skin cancer, however it is always advisable to wear a UVA and UVB blocker such as WOTNOT SPF30 natural sunscreen when spending time in the sun.
