Ava has been getting requests for new organic, super-gentle, healing, regulating acne potions, and here are the violet-leaf-scented fruits of her labor: a lovely, green-tinted facial oil that is completely noncomedogenic, fully absorbent, refreshing, creamy-velvety, and antimicrobial in a virgin coconut–virgin jojoba oil base.
The scent is green, leafy, and grassy in a wonderfully refreshing way, from that exquisite violet leaf absolute plus French Provencal lavender (high altitude, no less).
Now, what does it do? Heals and prevents acne with thyme, regenerates skin cells and reverses wrinkles with rosemary verbenone, regulates oil secretion with clementine leaf and coconut oil, and reverses signs of aging with the lavender and violet. Violet leaf is this fascinating plant that acts both as anti-acne and anti-aging ingredient.
While this oil is not at all drying (or irritating) in the way many anti-acne products are, the coconut oil in it makes it very gently astringent. If you have oily skin areas, they will stay more matte and over time become more balanced in terms of oil production. If your skin is on the dry side but still acne-prone, you can use this oil just on the problem spots, or try using the oil as the first layer and following with a noncomedogenic moisturizer as the second layer.
Apply day and night or only at night all over the face or just on the oily or acne areas, or just as an acne spot treatment. The oil may be solid, semi-solid, or liquid depending on your home’s temperature. If it becomes liquid, stir it periodically to remix. Keep away from sunlight (such as in your bathroom cabinet) and excessive heat (above 80 degrees F) for maximum shelf life. Does not need refrigeration. An easy-to-use glass dropper will be included with your order to make for simpler application of this product when liquid.
For acne, acne-prone, oily, combination, post-acne, sensitive, damaged, and reddened skin types.
