WHY WE LOVE THIS
Breakout-prone skin needs moisture too. Here’s one of the best serums for oily skin that both unclogs pores and puts back much needed nutrients to keep skin calm, clear and protected. Green tea, safflower oil and grapeseed oil sink in easily and help balance the skin. Pomegranate oil and evening primrose provide anti-aging and skin enhancing nutrients for softer, more youthful skin — and more than 12 active botanicals in this herbal infusion deliver antioxidants and vitamins deep down to help soothe inflammation, decongest and replenish moisture.
Blue Chamomile essential oil // Also known as German chamomile, this blue essential oil is one of the most powerful healing oils for the skin. Close in kin to blue tansy, or Moroccan chamomile, this version is high in flavonoids, terpenoids, oxides, and azulenes (chamazulene is what gives the essential oil its beautiful blue color). It has antioxidant, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties to help get rid of bad bacteria, it’s an anti-inflammatory and has powerful skin healing effects that work wonders on problematic skin.
Immortelle essential oil // Helichrysum, also known as immortelle or everlasting, is a small yellow flower with amazing healing and regenerative properties. It gets its name from the fact that the blooms never wilt! The essential oil extracted from it is a powerful healer and has cell regenerative properties. Used in synergy with blue chamomile, it creates a powerhouse skin healing combo, great for diminishing redness and speeding the healing of blemishes. This is a wonderful anti-aging and healing ingredient.
Tamanu oil // Pressed from the nut of the Ati tree, this exotic oil has skin-healing and regenerative properties. It’s also an antibacterial, is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it especially useful as one of the best oils for acne and for treating and other skin irritations.
Pomegranate oil // Useful for cell regeneration, anti-aging, and deep moisture. Pomegranate oil is high in flavonoids, antioxidants, and ellagic acid, which helps prevent UV damage. There’s also punicic acid (omega-5) which can calm and soothe inflammation and prevent moisture loss.
Grapeseed oil // This oil is cold pressed from the seed of grapes, which is rich in beta-carotene, Vitamins D, C, E, and essential fatty acids like linoleic acid. It is a lightweight oil that absorbs easily into skin and can help retain moisture, help skin repair itself and increase elasticity to help reduce signs of aging.
Safflower Oil Infusion // Not all safflower oil is created equal. We use a high quality oil that is extremely high in linolenic (Omega-3) and linoleic acid (Omega-6), both beneficial fatty acids. Research has shown that linoleic acid is effective in cell regulation, skin-barrier repair, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Linolenic acid helps speed up wound healing and reduce inflammation. Safflower oil is a light to the touch, but great for both dry and breakout prone skin. Our blend is infused with blemish-busting thyme and sebum-balancing green tea.
