Jojoba Seed Oil:
A natural emollient, Jojoba oil’s resemblance to sebum allows it to absorb easily and easily into your skin, making it a gentle, skin-soothing moisturiser for all skin types. In addition to acne, jojoba oil provides a treatment for several other skin infections, mainly due to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Jojoba is packed with vitamins and minerals that are essential for healthy hair and skin, namely vitamin E, B complex, copper, zinc, selenium, iodine and chromium.
Hemp seed oil:
Hemp seed oil is an excellent moisturizer because it is very penetrating, non-greasy and non-comedogenic (does not clog the pores), which in turn helps in the regulation of sebum (oil). Linoleic acid (62% composition) and alpa-Linolenic acids provide powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties for the treatment of acne, dermatitis and other skin inflammatory conditions. Hemp seed oil consists of 80% essential fatty acid, the highest amount of any other plant, it contains the ideal ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 based on our cell needs. Hemp is so closely similar to our own skin lipids (fats) that it is able to penetrate into our cells and lubricate the surface between them, bringing EFAs (essential fatty acids) into our bodies. For this reason, EFAs are said to play a preventive role in skin aging and a healthy moisture balance.
Calendula infused oil:
Our dining ingredient! This wonderful herb has been macerated in oil for many weeks to extract its powerful wound healing properties. Calendula is considered a mainstay in herbal medicine for the treatment of inflammation, to accelerate wound healing and as an antiseptic. It is a powerful botanical rich in Salicylic Acid that is a natural and gentle skin restorer. The Herb Research Foundation reports that test-tube research indicates that calendula contains antimicrobial compounds that can prevent the growth of certain strains of bacteria, fungi and protozoa. The antibacterial properties of calendula are believed to kill the bacteria trapped in the pores of the skin (which can lead to acne). High iodine, carotene and manganese, which promote the regeneration of skin cells, have also been found in the plant.
Grape seed oil:
Grape seed oil is a very moisturizing oil and seems to help in the recovery of the skin, as it has slightly astringent, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are essential for healthy, glowing skin. It is a great source of essential fatty acids and vitamin E. The linoleic acid in grape seed oil can be very beneficial for skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis and eczema. Linoleic acid can soothe and nourish the skin and help it heal. Vitamin E, on the other hand, keeps the skin firm and smooth.
Tea Tree Oil:
Tea tree oil is known for its powerful antiseptic properties and ability to treat wounds. Although data shows that tea tree has been used for thousands of years, we now have more than 327 scientific studies that refer to the antimicrobial prowess of tea tree alone, it has been documented in numerous medical studies to kill many strains of bacteria, viruses and fungi. It has unique disinfectant and soothing properties and, unlike other acne treatments, tea tree oil will not strip your skin of its natural oils and cause further damage.
In addition to a wonderful calming scent, lavender is credited as anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, antispasmodic, balancing, energizing and soothing. It is said to have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties to fight the bacteria that cause acne.
Why cold-pressed and unrefined?
Cold-pressed products go through a process of mechanical extraction (pressure) and low temperature controlled conditions to extract the oil from the seed, nut, etc. Unrefined means that the product has not had any additional refining/preservation/deodorising. These oils can also be referred to as ‘virgin’ or ‘extra virgin’. This process ensures the best quality product and makes the oil excellent for cosmetics. The unrefined/cold-pressed process helps the oil maintain a rich, strong smell and color that is true to its natural state, leaving the oil’s nutrients and antioxidants undamaged and unchanged.
