Using our Organic Facial Oil is like eating this beautifully green, nutrient-rich salad (picture by Hemsley & Hemsley); packed full of essential fatty acids, proteins, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, it’s a superfood salad for your skin! Sarah has blended the very finest certified organic, cold-pressed, plant-based oils to create a facial oil which is not only super nourishing but is light and easily absorbed. It’s all down to these powerhouse ingredients (all listed up-front on the label; nothing more, nothing less):
Organic Almond Oil is our winner for smooth, flawless skin. Almond oil is naturally rich in the highly potent antioxidant vitamin E, which protects skin from oxidative stress and UV radiation damage. It also keeps skin soft and smooth. Hoorah!
Organic Apricot Oil is for long-lasting nourishment. Apricot oil is light in texture and percolates deep into the skin and, once absorbed, it provides long-lasting nourishment. Skin is instantly softer and smoother. Just what we need in these wintery conditions!
Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil is our collagen-boosting buddy: Pumpkin seed oil is rich in fatty acids and acts as an outstanding anti-inflammatory; it helps to calm and soothe redness, keeping skin hydrated and firm. The science part: the oil encourages cell turnover and aids in maintaining collagen levels, resulting in more youthful-looking skin.
Organic Argan Oil is our all-round skin hero: We love argan oil because it locks in moisture and balances the amount of sebum (natural oil of the skin) our skin produces. This hand-gathered oil is ethically sourced from a cooperative of Berber women in Morocco, which ensures they're paid a fair wage.
Organic Evening Primrose Oil keeps skin soft and supple: The light and delicate ‘top note’ of our blend, this oil contains a rare, special fatty acid (GLA) that penetrates deep into your skin, helping it stay hydrated, soft and supple. It’s anti-inflammatory properties also help reduce redness and rashes on the skin.
Vitamin E is the ultimate skin saviour: Vitamin E is key to your skin’s antioxidant defences and helping to protect against UV damage, because it absorbs free radicals. It promotes healthy skin and is great in our Organic Facial Oil because it helps the other ingredients maintain their freshly-blended purity and active properties. (Vitamin E cannot be obtained via organic farming methods, but is 100% natural, GM-free and derives from the soy bean.)
