Why We Like It
Nourishes aging skin. Reduces irritation and inflammation in sensitive, red, or rosacea-prone skin. Improves barrier function and moisture retention. Restores suppleness. Imparts soft, dewy, smooth skin. Softens wrinkles.
How It Works
When therapeutic oils are applied to the skin without the
interference of waxes, they can be absorbed directly into the
top layers of the epidermis, where they instantly go to work to improve lipid barrier function. By replenishing the oils youÕve lost due to natural attrition and exposure, you enable your skin to properly do its job: hold moisture in and keep the elements, like sun and wind, out.
Leave it to nature to create a stunning contradiction like the helichrysum. Its antibacterial and antifungal properties have been used for centuries to fight infection, but itÕs also a soothing anti-inflammatory that heals wounds and minimizes scarring.
Pomegranate Seed Oil:
A rich, highly-prized oil thatÕs off-the-charts high in anti-oxidants that fight free radicals and skin aging. ItÕs also filled with punicic acid, a specific fatty acid that has potent anti-inflammatory benefits.
Grape Seed Oil:
Not only is this light, easily absorbed oil blessed with the fabulous anti-oxidant polyphenol, it offers a hefty concentration of essential fatty acids, which weÕre huge fans of given their proven ability to combat wrinkles. ItÕs also a fabulous source of nutrients like beta-carotene and vitamins D, C, and E.
