Cucumber Seed Oil
A natural source of silica which is essential for maintaining healthy bone and connective tissues. Silica can be found in every cell of the body, including cartilage, blood vessels and on the surface of the skin.
The natural silica in Cucumber seed oil is responsible for the cross-linking of collagen in the connective tissues of the skin.
Silica is key to keeping the skin healthy by reducing the chances of skin damage, caused by the usual extremities in life, such as pollution, excessive sun exposure, wind and rain. Cucumber Seed Oil also helps ensure elasticity of the skin, thanks to the abundant amount of phytosterols that strengthen the skin’s lipid barrier, ensuring that your skin receives the right balance of moisture. A reduction of silica in the skin’s connective tissues may result in a loss of moisture and suppleness.
Made up of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs).
The body’s natural oil, sebum, is made up of medium chain fatty acids/medium chain triglycerides creating an anti-microbial layer that protects our skin & scalp from Bad bacteria and prevents infections. If your skin is dry – then putting an oil high in medium chain fatty acids/medium chain triglycerides will protect against dryness.
An odourless, colourless, very stable light moisturiser that resembles human sebum secretion and discourages blemishes. Golden Jojoba is an ideal lubricant for the skin.
Japanese Camellia Kissi
Rich source of plant collagen that helps to prevent keloids and/or unsightly scar tissue – great for stretch marks. Camellia Kissi oil is rich in Oleic Acid (Omega 9) and as such is a very stable oil that resists rancidity. This emollient of unsaturated fatty acids is important to the formation and maintenance of the skin’s lipid barrier.
The key to using our cleansing oil is to make sure your face and hands are dry.
Use clean dry hands and massage 5 drops of cleansing oil into your palms. Spread it all over your face and neck than gently massage.
Drape a clean, very warm/hot, wash cloth over the treated area(s) for a few minutes. The steam from the wash cloth will open your pores and release the impurities.
Wipe away the oil with the cloth and rinse your skin with luke warm water.
