what it does:
balances oily skin to regulate sebum production
helps to prevent irritation and sensitivities
may replenish natural oils lost during cleansing
why it works:
- almond oil is used to soothe and condition the skin by replenishing natural skin oils lost during cleansing.
- safflower oil contains a high concentration of linoleic acid (78%), which combines with sebum to clear pores, reducing blackheads and acne. linoleic acid also stimulates cell regeneration, renewing the surface of the skin to decrease the appearance of blemishes and scars.
- lavender is a highly fragrant flower which has been used to reduce scars, decrease pigmentation, and fight acne, inflammation, and infection.
- clary sage has been used for its exfoliating and hydrating properties.
- bergamot has antibacterial and balancing properties. be sure to use a sunscreen after applying products with bergamot oil, as it is a photosensitizer.
- tocopherol (vitamin E) is an antioxidant which helps to prevent free radical damage to the skin. It is also an anti-inflammatory and moisturizer.
