Borage Oil: borage oil is nature’s richest known source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) - an Omega-6 Fatty Acid thought to be missing from the sebum of blemish-prone skin. Borage Oil, with an impressive 18% concentration of GLA, has been shown to reduce inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions on the skin.
Passion Fruit Seed Oil: this feather-light oil is wild-crafted in Brazil and cold-pressed from the seeds of the exotic passion fruit. Rich in Linoleic Acid, this oil works to restore the lipid layer and boost hydration, increasing the softness and suppleness of the skin.
Evening Primrose Oil: second to Borage Oil in GLA content, Evening Primrose Oil is thought to speed up wound healing and promote the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Grapeseed Oil: one of the most lightweight and fast-absorbing carrier oils available, our cold-pressed organic grapeseed oil is an important source of Omega-6 Fatty Acids, known to nourish and protect the skin, leading to improved texture and a more even tone.
Acai Berry Oil: cold-pressed from acai berries and wild-crafted in the Amazon basin, our acai berry oil has a remarkable nutrient profile, delivering skin with a combination of Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9 Essential Fatty Acids to support cellular structure, and Vitamins E and C, plus a range of B-Vitamins to rejuvenate and revitalize tired, troubled skin.
Blue Tansy: this ocean-blue oil gets its deep, inky-blue color from the aromatic compound chamazulene. A chamomile derivative, blue tansy helps to soothe irritated skin, reduce the appearance of redness, and rebalance oily or troubled skin.
Petitgain: petitgrain, an essential oil steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree is said to encourage a balance in the skin’s natural sebum levels. For those with oily skin, petitgrain oil may reduce excess sebum production, leaving skin that is well balanced and hydrated.
Tea Tree: tea tree essential oil is naturally anti-bacterial and clinically proven to reduce blemishes and breakouts. We source organic tea tree oil to ensure that the anti-bacterial properties inherently found in tea tree aren't minimized by the use of pesticides during the growing process of conventional farming.
Apply 4-6 drops to freshly cleansed skin over your moisturizing creams and serums to lock in ingredients. Lightweight and fast-absorbing, our Ultra-Clarifying Facial Oil wears beautifully under makeup; allow 3-5 minutes for the product to absorb before applying.
