100% natural facial oil
An extraordinary oil, light and easily absorbed, yet rich and deeply nourishing. This oil is host to a broad range of fatty acids that really boost skin's lipid content, bolstering skin barrier and helping the skin retain moisture. Rosehip oil and borage oil contain large amounts of linoliec fatty acid (an essential fatty acid that your body cannot make itself). They also contain GLA (gamma linolenic acid) which is normally made in the body from linoliec acid but often cannot be made by sufferers of atopic skin conditions like eczema.
These fatty acids are essential for good skin barrier, but are not sun-stable, they will oxidise in the sun and create free radicals. Lyonsleaf have created this oil specifically for use at night to compliment our Beauty Balm which contains high levels of sun-stable tropical oils and is great for day-time use. We recommend using this oil in the evening after oil cleansing. It can be used daily, or a few times a week as required.
This facial oil also contains Lyonsleaf's home-grown soothing Calendula extract, but the star of the show is the Marshmallow extract - a very potent dose of it (Marshmallow macerated oil makes up a whopping 50% of this product). Marshmallow has acquired a reputation as a skin saviour an anti-ager and rejuvenator, it is known for improving a cells ability to hold moisture, plumping skin to erase fine lines.
But we love marshmallow because it softens and restores the most tired and damaged skin. We made this as a facial oil, but try it on feet, elbows or hands damaged by water or roughened by gardening, it's ability to soften and repair is remarkable.
Lyonsleaf have scented this oil with a light woody floral scent only from essential oils and rose flower extract.
