Coconut oil- Helps moisturize sensitive eye area, lightens fine lines and dark circles. Prevents early signs of ageing.

- Pure Coconut oil – Moisturizes the skin and reduces wrinkles.
- 100% Vitamin E Oil or Vitamin E capsules- rich in anti oxidants, helps to lighten the skin and reduce fine lines.
