Our Anti-Aging Avocado Facial Serum
is a unique blend of 100% organic and natural avocado, grape seed, rose, jojoba and primrose oil which have proven benefits for the skin.
It’s important to remember that individual results vary greatly depending on your skin type and other factors like good internal nutrition, but if your skin is at all sensitive or problematic, it’s highly beneficial to have one simple, natural oil to use as a face moisturiser, rather than trying to work out which of two dozen different chemicals might be causing your skin problems.
What are the actual benefits of our Facial Serum?
Cold pressed avocado oil is one of the richest sources of beneficial monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid. These fats are a great addition to your diet but can also have an immediate effect on the texture and appearance of your skin.
Not only is avocado oil extremely good at hydrating and softening your skin, is it also often recommended as an effective treatment for acne and blackheads, eczema and other forms of skin inflammation. It has even been reported a beneficial for diminishing age spots and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Grapeseed oil is a byproduct of winemaking. After wine is made by pressing grapes, grape seeds are left behind and the oil is extracted from these leftover grape seeds.
Many of grapeseed oil's beauty benefits may be derived from its vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acid content. Free radicals and environmental factors such as sun, wind, and pollution can do a number on your skin and may increase the signs of aging and cause dry skin and discoloration.
Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant and works by scavenging free radicals. In this way it may help improve your skin when consumed in your diet or when it's applied directly to your skin in the form of grapeseed oil.
Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are crucial to skin function and appearance. Omega-6 fatty acids are necessary for skin barrier functioning. The main omega-6 PUFA in grapeseed oil is linolenic acid which may also help reduce inflammation in the skin's middle and outer layers.
Rose naturally combats spot-causing bacteria, which makes it an excellent equaliser. It is renowned for its skin-soothing properties, is phenomenally calming and a common ingredient in redness, rosacea and eczema treatment. In a similar way that grape seed works, rose is brimming with the antioxidant vitamin C, also great at help fighting against ageing free radicals - providing protection from the everyday environmental onslaught, to keep skin young and beautiful.
Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is found in evening primrose oil, is known to have a multitude of skin benefits including smoothing wrinkles. “The potent level of antioxidants in evening primrose helps to neutralize free radicals, which protect the skin from oxidation in living tissue.
