Clarifying Facial Oil
For easily irritated, acne-prone skin, I have crafted this lightweight oil, infused with healing herbs and potent botanical extracts. I created this blend of oils especially for easily-congested skin. High linoleic safflower has a fatty acid profile that is fantastic for acneic skin. I have deeply infused it with yarrow, an ancient healing herb often used to cleanse and treat wounds. To that I added a series of high quality plant oils including tamanu which is excellent for clearing the skin. White willow bark ferment, a natural source of BHAs and probiotics, algae extract, plant-based ceramides, and elderberry extract round out this luxurious formula. Tea tree essential oil offers its antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory powers. Yarrow is an excellent vulnerary and skin healer with anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties, making it excellent for congested and inflamed skin.
**Argan oil is high in both oleic and linoleic fatty acids. These can improve the skin’s permeability and reduce inflammation and increase skin moisture levels, respectively. It is also full of antioxidants, and vitamins A and E.
**Hemp seed oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory regenerative aid. It can help to calm inflammation and irritation while both soothing and moisturizing. Additionally, it can minimize the appearance of fine lines and work to prevent new ones from forming.
**Rosehip seed oil is loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids. It also contains phenols that have been shown to have antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Its high levels of vitamins A and C can encourage skin renewal and overall radiance.
**Jojoba oil contains high levels of iodine, which can fight harmful bacteria growth that leads to breakouts. It is high in antioxidants, which can slow the signs of aging. Because jojoba oil mimics our skin’s own sebum so closely, it is able to deeply moisturize and balance the skin’s own oil production.
**Sugar cane and olive-derived squalaneoil is a highly effective emollient and antioxidant that also carries other ingredients deeper into the skin and prevents the loss of hydration that leads to fine lines and loss of suppleness. Especially great for sensitive skin! **Yarrow-infused high linoleic safflower oil is naturally astringent calming and balances the skin's sebum production.
**Tamanu oil is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial and can be excellent for congested and acne-prone skin.
**Willow bark ferment contains beta hydroxy acids to deep clean the pores and clarify the complexion. It leaves the skin glowing and bright!
**Algae extract can easily and deeply penetrate the skin for instant soothing and moisturizing. It is especially good at smoothing and tightening the appearance of skin.
**Nothing enhances the functionality of the skin's moisture barrier like ceramides. Ours are plant-derived and are excellent at moisturizing and improving the skin’s ability to maintain and effective lipid barrier against dehydration, bacteria, and environmental stressors. They are formulated in a biomimetic matrix of plant sterols and fatty acids for optimal performance.
**Elderberry extract is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Bioflavonoids provide gentle skin-tightening and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Please remember to keep all of our preservative-free products free of water and to use with clean hands to prolong their shelf-life.
