Please read the benefits of each ingredient that is listed below.
Camellia Seed Oil
Camellia Sinensis~ A very light, easily absorbed, non-comedogenic oil from the Camellia Plant that provides the skin with protection from free radicals. It helps to rejuvenate, regenerate and soothe the skin, especially on the face, where it can also help to smooth out fine lines.
Olive Squalane Oil
A cruelty free, Olive-based, Luxuriously light and non-comedogenic oil that helps to safeguard the skin from pollutants and free radicals. It is a very stable, lubricating and silky soft oil that absorbs readily into the skin without a greasy feel. This oil also helps to replenish the delicate skin on the face, reducing the signs of aging.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil
A fine and exotic plant-based oil from the origins of Mexico and Morocco. This oil is highly prized for its abundance of vitamins K, E & A, high levels of oleic and linoleic acid, and phenols. It is purported to provide intensive protection against free radicals. This oil is richly textured, but light, easily absorbed and non-comedogenic. It has a fruity scent that comes from the seed source of the cactus. About a ton of fruit is required to produce a very small amount of this oil, hence the cost.
An ester of Beeswax, Polyglycerol-3 (Cera Bellina Wax), is a very common skin care ingredient that is used to thicken formulas without creating a tacky feel. In the case of our Prickly Pear Oil Gel, we include it in our formula because of the unique way that it turns our beautiful oils into a stable, gel-like serum for ease of application without the tacky feel that you could get from beeswax or other waxes. Polyglycerol-3 helps to impart a very smooth, glossy texture and light, buttery feel to this formula that you will just love!
Vitamin E is a very powerful fat-soluble antioxidant oil that provides stability and nutrient-dense properties to our Oil Gel. It nourishes and soothes the skin, and helps to facilitate healing, by reducing the appearance of scars and keloidal tissues. Vitamin E helps to prevent rancidity of our precious oils, and prolongs the shelf life of this product. We bottle our Oil Gel in 1 oz glass pump containers to prevent cross-contamination and wasted product, as a very little of the gel goes a long way.
Blue Tansy Essential Oil Powerfully aids in soothing irritated and inflamed skin and can provide cooling to areas of the skin that are damaged and/sunburned. Its gorgeous deep blue color called chamazulene, occurs during the careful and gentle heat-processing of the Blue Tansy's (Moroccon Blue Chamomile Flower) tops and leaves. Interestingly, "less is more" when using this herbaceous essential oil. Literal minute drops are all that is needed to impart the color, scent and benefits of this amazing oil in our gel. Please note that Blue Tansy is the only essential oil used to scent this product!
