I made this product because I fell in love with face oils, but I hadn’t found a commercially made oil that really worked for me. In researching the different components of the oils, I realized that different customers will be looking for different benefits in the oil mixtures. So, I created Bright for younger skin which may be blemish-prone, Balance for normal to dry skin and Moisture for those seeking anti-aging agents. The below information discussed what ingredients are in each formulation and why I chose them. Me? I use Balance because I love the qualities of avocado oil — anywhere, anytime.
Bright – grapeseed and jojoba oils, castor oil, tangerine and rosemary essential oils.
I chose grapeseed and jojoba as the base oils because they are ideal for oily or problematic skin. Grapeseed is a lighter oil which improves skin elasticity. Jojoba is an oil that creates balance between dry and oily, no matter the skin type. I add a little castor oil because it’s an anti-inflammatory and fights acne. Tangerine essential oil is an anti-oxidant which means it protects skin from UV exposure. Tangerine EO has anti-inflammatory and skin cell regeneration properties which helps fight acne. Vitamin C also brightens the look of skin.
Balance – avocado, rice bran and evening primrose oils, castor oil, neroli essential oil
The workhorse in this formulation is the avocado oil. It is a medium weight oil filled with vitamins and anti-oxidants, making it great for hydrating dry skin and protecting skin from environmental damage. I pair it with rice bran oil because rice bran is anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, which improve overall skin health. Evening primrose oil and castor oil are super-moisturizers and gently improve skin elasticity. The neroli essential oil has antimicrobial, antifungal and anti-oxidant qualities — and I just love the scent!
Moisture – Rosehip and jojoba oils, geranium, lavender and helichryseum essential oils.
Rosehip oil is an excellent anti-aging oil. Vitamin A & C in the oil promotes skin regeneration and improves skin texture. It also improves collagen production and reduces pigmentation on your skin. Jojoba oil is, again, a great moisture and balance agent for any skin type. Geranium essential oil is calming, reduces wrinkles and controls oiliness in skin. Lavender essential oil is another calming scent and it reduces wrinkles, soothes dry skin and de-toxifies skin. Helichrysum essential oil fights aging skin by promoting skin cell regeneration and protecting your skin’s collagen.
