Our choice of name Elaeagnus for our face oil is due to the profound properties of sea buckthorn, a plant of the Elaeagnaceae botanical family. With a wide range of healing benefits, the seeds and leaves of this plant are very rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids (including vitamins C, B, and E, as well as omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids). Sea buckthorn’s wonderful healing qualities also include protection against UV exposure, promotion of skin elasticity, prevention of skin dryness, and especially healing around the eyes: a ‘must have’ ingredient for our luxurious face oil.
Highly treasured as a secret beauty ingredient in Japan, this beautiful scented oil rich in omega 9 essential fatty acids, helps to maintain and replenish the skin barrier. Often described as a dry oil, camellia oil is well absorbed into the skin, with no greasy residue. Among its many benefits is its richness in vitamin A, which encourages skin cell production. It also contains vitamin E, a natural antioxidant which moisturises and softens your skin, making it less prone to fine lines.
Rosehip seed oil
Exceptionally rich in vitamin C, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, rosehip oil is not only anti-ageing, but is also praised for its ability to facilitate healing of scars, age spots, sun damage and other blemishes, making it an essential ingredient in our face oil.
Thanks to its richness in omega 6 essential fatty acids, passionflower oil nourishes and restores the skin’s important barrier function. It is also high in vitamin A, which can support collagen production, helping to reduce fine lines. It also protects against damage from excessive sun exposure, enhances skin healing and reduces acne.
Lemongrass essential oil
Lemongrass essential oil brings a refreshing and uplifting touch to our Elaeagnus face oil. In addition to its bright, mood-enhancing aroma, lemongrass essential oil is particularly useful for oily or acne prone skin, thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial actions. It naturally inhibits any bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Lemongrass has the added benefit of also being high in antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from free radical damage caused by environmental pollutants and excess sun exposure.
Frankincense essential oil
One of the most well known and potent anti-inflammatories in herbal medicine, frankincense essential oil is a key ingredient in our face oil due to its ability to improve circulation and blood flow, thereby brightening and improving the tone of the skin. Through its toning, rejuvenating and wound healing action, it works to reduce the appearance of blemishes and lines.
Lavender essential oil
Beyond its beautifully calming scent that relaxes and soothes the nervous system, lavender essential oil has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties. It addresses bacterial infections, unclogs pores and reduces inflammation, soothing the skin and helping to prevent and heal any blemishes.
Helichrysum essential oil
Helichrysum essential oil is widely used in skincare to prevent and reduce fine lines, scars and blemishes. It supports skin healing and regeneration and prevents damage from environmental stressors thanks to its richness in antioxidants. It has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which make it helpful in reducing any allergic rashes and in preventing infection in skin wounds.
Rose geranium essential oil
Rose geranium is relaxing and soothing. It promotes a healthy circulation and helps cleanse the skin. Despite its sweet and floral aroma, it also has potent antiseptic properties that help prevent any infection. Rose geranium brings a radiant glow to the skin.
Patchouli essential oil
Extracted from the leaves of the fragrant patchouli plant, patchouli essential oil can help reduce wrinkles, blemishes and skin imperfections, and promote a smooth and glowing complexion. It calms redness, prevents any infections and softens the skin.
Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant, which helps protect the skin from various adverse environmental factors, including air pollution and solar radiation. Moreover, it speeds up the healing process and reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation, whether it be acne scars, age spots or any other imperfections.
