Our sunflower seed oil is cold pressed and organic for the ultimate in skincare. Sunflower seed oil is non-comedogenic and therefore does not clog the pores (which can create break-outs).

Native to southern Arizona and California, jojoba oil has been used in skincare for centuries. Extracted by cold pressing the jojoba seed, jojoba oil, whilst called an oil, it is actually a liquid wax ester. Another non-comedogenic oil, jojoba oil is so alike to the skin’s own naturally produced oils (sebum) that it is readily absorbed without any oily residue and will consequently help regulate and balance excessively oily skin. Rich in vitamins A and E, and omega-6 fatty acids which are essential components of the skin’s barrier. This barrier protects on the skin’s surface and combined with the anti-inflammatory effects of the vitamin E, allows the skin to heal and regenerate its cells. It also acts as a humectant, meaning it works to retain moisture in the skin.
For the uplifting, astringent boost we’ve added organic orange and grapefruit essential oils.
Orange essential oil boosts the mood and is an anti-depressant and even an aphrodisiac. It is excellent for the skin with its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties making it ideal for acne, dermatitis and uncomfortable skin conditions. It even aids the reduction of dark spots, thanks to the vitamin C content. Orange essential oil promotes circulation whilst simultaneously reducing enlarged pores and firming the skin.
Grapefruit Essential oil is mentally uplifting & stimulating citrus oil that is anti-oxidant, antiseptic and anti-microbial which makes it perfect for cleansing the skin. With its anti-viral properties, it boosts the lymphatic system so can help with freeing the body of toxins. Oily skin can benefit from grapefruit as it helps reduce the overproduction of sebum. Excess sebum is oily skin. By aiding the skin to regenerate, grapefruit can help maintain youthful and glowing skin.
