Jasmine, Turmeric and Honeysuckle
Gentle on sensitive skin; these oils contain properties to fade surface imperfections including scars and protect from sun damage. Dry and flaky areas are improved.
Each Face Elixir contains a particular set of complimentary properties. There are ten ‘carrier’ oils in each, seven essential oils, absolutes or resins and three botanical extracts. Common to all three are the supercharged: Rosehip seed, Pomegranate, Camellia kissi, Apricot kernel, Sweet almond, Jojoba and Vitamin E, for their outstanding overall performance in skincare. The essential oils and resins common to all three are: Frankincense oleoresin, Geranium bourbon, and Palmarosa. They are all well-tolerated by most skin types and have properties that help repair oxidative stress, tissue degeneration and improve skin elasticity.
The oils particular to the Jasmine, Turmeric and Honeysuckle include Hemp seed oil which has an impressive fatty acid profile and includes phytosterols to reduce itching and flaky skin. Kukui nut is used for its ability to penetrate deep down into the skin, strengthening it by improving the intracellular bonds. Pumpkin seed is rich in necessary vitamins A,B, C and E and includes zinc, which is very useful. Strawberry seed is another lovely oil with a great array of beneficial properties, it can also help the skin protect against UV light. This is enhanced by the honeysuckle extract which contains high levels of EGCG, similar to green tea, which helps both protect from sunlight and limit damage after sun exposure. It is high in vitamins, polyphenols, tannins and vitamin C which can improve collagen synthesis. Turmeric and Myrrh have been shown to have protective effects on skin exposed to sunlight.
Application: The elixir is well-balances, so should be absorbed easily, just a few drops are necessary, gently smoothed into your skin. If the skin has broken capillaries or scars, take extra care to apply the elixir softly her. Do not rub it into the eye area.
This can be used every day, for very dry skin, or twice a week as a skin treat.
