WHY WE LOVE THIS
Prickly pear seed oil, sea buckthorn berry oil, and pomegranate oil give skin a trifecta of antioxidant protection, vitamins, and fatty acids to brighten, and rejuvenate the skin. Tamanu and tea tree oils fight blemish-causing bacteria. Sugar extract very gently exfoliates to decongest pores and make skin more vibrant. Blue chamomile and immortelle essential oils can calm inflammation.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil // Also known as barberry fig oil, this luxurious and nutrient-dense super oil is a powerhouse. It has a higher Vitamin E content than any other oil on the market, making it a potent antioxidant. There is also Vitamin K, known to brighten the skin, belatains (a super-antioxidant), and essential fatty acids such as linoleic acid (omega-6). Prickly pear oil is easily absorbed into the skin, protects against free radicals, refines uneven texture, helps prevent premature aging, provides nutrients, and brightens a complexion.
Sea Buckthorn Oil // This cold pressed oil has a deep amber color because of its rich content of the antioxidant beta-carotene. It is also loaded with skin-loving, free radical fighting compounds such as vitamins A, C, E, fatty acids like Omega 3, 6, 9, the very rare Omega 7, phytosterols, and flavonoids. Some research has shown that sea buckthorn can help reduce sebum production, reduce the occurrence of breakouts, and speed up healing.
CoQ10 //A naturally occurring substance present in human cells. When applied topically it works as a barrier to keep free radicals at bay and enhances the skin's ability to regenerate itself.
Sugar Extract // Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, a superior exfoliant that helps slough away dead skin cells to help reveal a brighter, more youthful complexion.
Blue Chamomile essential oil // Also known as German chamomile, this blue essential oil is one of the most powerful healing oils for acne. 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-inflammatories, which makes it especially useful as an essential oil for acne and treating 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.
HOW TO USE
Massage a few drops of this nutrient-packed clarifying oil into the skin after cleansing and toning. If you prefer a lighter application, mix it in your palms with one of our toners to create an emulsion. This serum works as both a serum and moisturizer, so there is no need to follow with a moisturizer.
Note: Sea buckthorn oil is a magical oil, but it’s deep orange hue can stain fabrics (not skin!). We recommend letting this serum sink in for at least 15 minutes before going to bed or face planting on a pillow.
