Acidic Profile:

Omega 9: Oleic Acid:

Concentration up to 86%

A Monosaturated fatty acid (better known as Omega 9). Loved for its deep skin absorption into the Dermis, due to be a heavier oil it is incredibly powerful for oil-based Hydration, making the oil it is concentrated in have the benefits to improve dry and mature skin tones from softening to plumping the skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

While it’s always good to have a combination of Oleic and Linoleic acid-based oils the usual rule is high Linoleic oils for Oily skin and high Oleic acid for dry skin.

Omega 6: Linoleic acid:

Concentration up to 30%

A Polyunsaturated fatty acid (better known as Omega 6 or vitamin F). Our bodies can’t produce Linoleic acid, so we must get it primarily through food consumption. With its light texture and primarily concentrating on the Epidermis, it works to improve the skin’s Lipid barrier. This helps to lock in moisture while balancing Sebum levels. Linoleic acid is known to be good for most skin types, but its primary benefit is for oily skin due to its ability to balance Sebum levels usually caused by too high a concentration of Oleic acid.

While it’s always good to have a combination of Oleic and Linoleic acid-based oils the usual rule is high Linoleic oils for Oily skin and high Oleic acid for dry skin.

Phytosterols:

Usually branded by the skincare industry as “Plant Sterols” while being found in small concentrations in all plant-based oils, known for their Epidermal moisture retention alongside mild UV protection of Collagen synthesis. Works to maintain Elasticity and soften skin, reduces inflammation and is very well known for its high absorption rate.

Magnesium:

Magnesium is a naturally occurring Alkaline Macro mineral, there is a direct link between a deficiency in Magnesium and reduced healthy Sebum and Collagen levels. When this happens, you are likely to have dry and uneven skin tones that eventually lead to an increase in fine lines and wrinkles.

Potassium

Potassium has a few benefits for your skin, starting with how it regulates the water content within your skin cells meaning a lack of Potassium will lead to dry skin and potentially skin disorders. It is also identified as an Electrolyte, so its electric charge is used to help your cells function normally.

Zinc:

An essential mineral for the skin primarily in skin healing, it has multiple benefits branching from it anti-inflammatory benefits that are shown to benefit skin issues such as Acne, Eczema and Rosacea. It improves Hormonal Imbalances such as the production of Sebum. A skin produced oil that excretes from hair follicles and skin pore, essentially preventing the production of overly oily skin.

Provitamin A:

Also known as Beta Carotene, used, and converted by the body to produce vitamin A. A vitamin with a reputation for maintaining and revitalising your skin. Usually added to skin creams for its improved skin cell turnover in the upper skin layers, essentially rejuvenating your skin giving you a younger fresh look. Also containing the benefits of being an Antioxidant while evening skin tone and improving acne prone skin.

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B6 (Pyridoxine)

  • B1 Bolsters the immune system, potentially improving the clearing of Free Radicals keeping skin cells in healthier conditions for longer.
  • B2 Improves Cellular turnover helping the skin stay young and youthful while improving Collagen maintenance.
  • B6 helps regulate skin hormones such as Melatonin (sleep hormone), Norepinephrine (stress hormone. High levels of stress and inadequate sleep have shown to increase skin Inflammation while reducing Skin Cell Regeneration essentially internally causing the same damage as Free Radicals.

Vitamin E type: (Alpha-Tocopherol)

Vitamin E has 8 different types split into two classes of varying chemical differences. Tocopherols and Tocotrienols, both having variations of Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta. They all have certain similar benefits of improving and protecting both your Epidermal and Dermal layers cellular membranes, while all being Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory based.

They are different from each other. With Alpha-Tocopherol being the most potent of Antioxidants within Tocopherols, Gamma-Tocopherols being shown to inhibit the formation of Cytokines! Tocotrienols are naturally more permeable (absorbing) through cellular membranes improving absorption and nourishment within your skin!

There are very few plants oils that contain Tocotrienols, which been shown to have much higher antioxidant activity with some tests showing levels almost 40 times higher!
