Vitamin enriched skincare products are all the rage right now. But did you know that organic nut & seed oils are naturally rich in vitamins and antioxidants? Here’s the tea.
The Nutrient Rich Profiles of Our Favourite Nut & Seed Oils
Wild Certified Organic Rose Hip Seed Oil
The ultimate in healing & regeneration, Rose Hip Seed Oil is nutrient rich with high levels of vitamins C, E & A. Rose Hip also has very high levels of both linoleic acid and linolenic acids.
Certified Organic Evening Primrose
An extremely balancing carrier oil, Evening Primrose is rich in Linoleic Acids (Omega-6), γ-Linolenic Acid (Omega-6), Oleic Acid (Omega-9), Palmitic Acid, and Stearic Acid.
Certified Organic Sweet Almond Oil
Sweet Almond oil is full of vitamin E, and it's a great source of protein, copper & zinc.
Certified Organic Jojoba Oil
Another very balancing oil for all skin types, Jojoba contains Gadoleic Acid (Eicosenoic Acid), Erucic Acid, Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Palmitoleic Acid, Stearic Acid, Behenic Acid, Vitamin E, and Vitamin B Complex. Jojoba is the same molecular weight as our sebum (skin oils), making it easily absorbed and digested by the skin.
Bonus: Our Jojoba Neroli & Jojoba Rose Facial Oils combine the regenerative & protective benefits of these precious florals with the hydrating & balancing action of Jojoba Oil. Can anyone say dream team?
Certified Organic Tamanu Oil (Calophyllum Inophyllum)
Certified Organic Black Seed
A wonderful oil for skin types that do not typically tolerate rich oils, Black Seed has 8 of the 9 essential amino acids which are combined to create a “whole” protein. Black Seed is also high in B vitamins, copper and zinc.
Rich in vitamins E & B, Tamanu oil is extremely healing & hydrating to the skin. Tamanu also has a high content of essential fatty acids; oleic, linoleic, steric and palmitic.
Certified Organic Grapeseed Oil
Certified Organic Calendula Macerate in Olive Oil
Along with the calming, soothing and healing benefits of the Calendula Flower, our Calendula Macerate is made in a base of Olive Oil. Olive Oil is rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.
Grapeseed Oil is high in Vitamin C & E as well as Linoleic Acid.
Vitamins for the Skin
Used on the skin, Vitamin A speeds up healing of scars, stretch marks and impurities. It combats breakouts and helps the skin to hold moisture, giving a healthy ‘glow’.
Top Oil for Vitamin A: Rose Hip Seed
Vitamin B reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It assists in the clearing of acne & breakouts, combats hyperpigmentation and softens the skin.
Top Oils for Vitamin B: Black Seed, Jojoba
Used in skincare, Vitamin C increases the production of collagen and elastin, which both help make the skin full and healthy. The topical use of products rich in Vitamin C can help to decrease the signs of aging, smoothing and brightening the skin.
Top Oil for Vitamin C: Rose Hip Seed
Acids & Omegas
These elements are protective and hydrating to the skin. They balance the moisture in the skin while preventing and treating damage. The balancing effects of these components make these oils helpful for both dry and oily skin types; they will help to correct both types of oil imbalance.
Top Oils for Acids & Omegas: Rose Hip Seed, Evening Primrose, Jojoba, Calendula
Proteins in skincare play an important role in the texture and structure of the skin. They improve elasticity and help to prevent ‘sagging’, stretching and wrinkles.
Top Oils for Protein: Sweet Almond, Black Seed
Besides eliminating the mystery of the origin and processing of the vitamin isolates being added to your skincare products, applying them to the skin through nut & seed oils puts the vitamins into a ‘wholefood’ form that your body can easily absorb and use. It’s like eating a diet of wholefoods rather than taking supplements.
