SKIN TYPE SUITABILITY Most Skin Types, Including: Normal, Dry, Combination, Sensitive
KEY INGREDIENTS SPOTLIGHT: Sunflower Oil - Contains high amounts of Vitamins A, B, D and E, minerals, and beneficial amounts of lecithin and unsaturated fatty acids. Is often used to help treat dry & damaged skin.
Squalane Oil – Non greasy emollient, and the stable form of squalene. It accounts for approximately 10% of our sebum composition, and in our bodies it protects our skin from lipid peroxidation. Our lab-made, nature identical, botanically derived squalane is a sustainable alternative to traditional olive and shark liver derived squalane. Ours is a mix of hydrocarbons isolated from olive oil that mimic the properties of olive squalane perfectly. The only difference between our squalane and conventional olive squalane is sustainability, and that is because it doesn’t rely on the agricultural supply of high demand extra virgin olive oil.
Acai Oil – Contains a robust nutrient profile with a combination of omega-3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids that support cellular structure, phytosterols, vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, E, and C, minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, and potassium, and essential amino acids. Rich in anthocyanins and phenols, which are powerful antioxidants. A green, thin, lightweight oil that absorbs quickly into skin without leaving a greasy feel on the skin. Ours is sourced by small shareholder indigenous, sustainably wild-harvested, pesticide free, and fair trade suppliers in South America.
Chia Seed Oil - Consists of the perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 essential fatty acids required for optimum skin health. Chia Seed oil is a rich source of antioxidants and phytonutrients, which protects the skin against the abuse of environmental elements and helps to reduce the appearance of aged skin. Chia Seed oil is an ideal ingredient for moisturizing formulations, as it reduces the water loss by protecting skin's moisture barrier, keeps the skin hydrated, and makes it look plump and radiant. Cold pressed, extra virgin and organic.
Blueberry Seed Oil - A nourishing and lightweight oil, made from upcycled blueberry seeds. 1kg of oil diverts 800,000 blueberries from food waste. Rich in omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, and an antioxidant-rich oil that shields the skin from blue light exposure. Rich in essential fatty acids and protective phytosterols, together with a standardized level of carotenoids, it protects against oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals and external pollutants. It's also a natural source of pro-retinol; making it particularly ideal for both anti-ageing and blue light protection, while leaving skin feeling silky smooth.
