About the ingredients:
Sunflower seed oil is used as a carrier oil and is rich in linoleic acid. These essential fatty acids can help maintain the skin barrier and decrease transepidermal water loss. They serve as a natural emollient for the skin, and can help to lock in moisture by forming a protective barrier. The fatty acids in sunflower seed oil don’t clog pores—they actually help dissolve the sebum that your skin produces, creating cleaner skin and pores, and helping to get rid of acne. Several studies have also suggested that sunflower seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties. Linoleic acid is the major lipid that converts to arachidonic acid, which leads to prostaglandin E2, an inflammatory modulator.
Meadowfoam Seed oil is great for aging skin because it absorbs quickly but leaves a light barrier that holds moisture in the skin. It is rich in Vitamins C and E and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Rosehip Seed oil is considered a “dry” oil, meaning that it soaks into the skin easily without leaving a greasy residue. It contains the antioxidant vitamin C, and the natural retinol vitamin A, making it ideal for protecting skin as well as increasing cell turnover. This unique oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin while reducing scars and fine lines.
Evening Primrose oil contains high levels of GLA essential fatty acids and is good for dry and mature skin. Evening Primrose is an anti inflammatory, so it is considered preventative to hyper pigmentation, age spots and scarring.
Vitamin E oil is a powerful antioxidant. It is nourishing for all skin types and plumps and firms the skin. It also prolongs the shelf life of the product.
Carrot Seed essential oil contains a high amount of antioxidants and vitamins C and E. It is healing and rejuvenates skin cells because of its ability to stimulate cell growth and repair damaged skin. Carrot Seed oil also helps to balance the skin, and it does not clog pores.
Cypress essential oil is slightly astringent, giving it a skin-tightening, pore-reducing effect; it is often used in facial and skin care formulations. Cypress also helps to alleviate poor circulation problems and relieve excess fluid retention.
Geranium essential oil aids in stimulating circulation for the regeneration of skin. It balances both dry and oily skin types and promotes even distribution of melanin, helping to even skin tone.
