organic Primrose Oil

Organic Rosehip oil Description

Probably one of the most well-known oils within the skincare industry and for a particularly good reason!

It also contains an oil soluble variant of vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate) and Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E). Both helping to improve Collagen synthesis and strengthening your cellular membranes improving their health and lifespan. More known as a dry oils to works best for skin conditions and dry / combination skin types.

Acidic Profile:

Omega 6: Linoleic Acid:

Concentration up to 55%

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.

Omega 9: Oleic Acid:

Concentration up to 18%

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 3: Alpha Linolenic Acid:

Concentration up to 38%

A polyunsaturated fatty acid (Better known as Omega 3). An organic compound produced by the Mitochondria within our body’s cells. The amount produced is minimal so the majority of ALA we need we consume from our food. Known for its powerful Anti-inflammatory benefits which calms the skin and can improve scar, pigmentation, and Blemished skin. Alongside the usual benefits of Linoleic acid content.

Natural Trans Retinoic Acid

While Beta-carotene can be turned into Retinol within the body, Trans Retinoic Acid is already in a state that can be fully used by the body, with all the same benefits of synthetic retinol. Improved skin cell renewal showing off your younger fresher skin while improving Acne and acne scars.

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.

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 C

Also known as Ascorbic acid (or in this case the oil soluble Ascorbyl Palmitate), an essential vitamin for the body that we can’t produce so have to absorb from our food primarily fruit. It is a powerful Antioxidant so helps protect the skin from Free Radicals such as pollution, smoking etc. Its most popular benefit is the bodies need of vitamin C to produce Collagen within the body which makes up 80% of the skins tissue. Low levels of Collagen lead to increased levels of wrinkles with increased risk of bruising and reduced elasticity.

Vitamin E (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 as the most interesting thing I saved until last… They’ve been shown to have much higher antioxidant activity with some tests showing levels almost 40 times higher!
