Strawberry Seed Oil
Strawberry seed oil comes from the strawberry plant, a plant used throughout historic times for medicinal purposes. While strawberries are known for their high vitamin C content, the seed and resulting oil are very rich in fatty acids, containing about 35% Omega-3, 45% Omega-6, and 20% Omega-9 fatty acids. The seed also contains ellagic acid, a polyphenol, known for its antioxidant properties. When the skin is deficient in essential fatty acids (Omega-3, -6), it can become dehydrated through transepidermal water loss, with itching accompanied by desquamation (skin shedding). Topical application of these essential fatty acids can reduce the water loss, restoring hydrophobicity to the skin. This oil is light green in color, demonstrating the purity of the extraction and lightly fragrant.
Apple Seed Oil
Apple seed oil is an ultra-lightweight oil that is high in oleic and linoleic acids, which will help restore the hydrophobic nature to skin. It has a light, sweet smell.
Avocado oil is a lubricious oil rich in vitamins A, D, E and other essential fatty acids. The balanced composition makes it suitable for sensitive skin and provides a luxurious skin-feel. The specific free fatty acid composition is highly compatible with skin, restoring the hydrophobic barrier to leave skin feeling moisturized. The vitamin content of the skin (A, D, E) are essential to skin health. Avocado, unlike the other oils, comes from the flesh of the fruit.
Jojoba seed oil is a highly oxidatively stable, liquid known for its non-greasy skin feel. It has been documented for use to enhance skin and hair appearance since the early 1700s. Has a similar feel to skin sebum and is excellent for lightweight hydration of skin. Jojoba Oil is unique from all other vegetable oils, as it does not contain any triglycerides.
Cucumber Seed Oil
Cucumber seed oil is an organic, cold-pressed oil, containing more than 60% linoleic acid and up to 20% oleic acid. This helps bring tonus (tonicity) to the skin. It also helps to restore the hydrophobic nature of the skin. This oil is also impressively rich in phytosterols, which participate in the structural and functional integrity of cell membranes. It helps make skin feel more elastic and rejuvenated. Phenylalanine also helps promote a brightening effect of the complexion. Made mostly of water, cucumbers are known for their hydrating and cooling effect. The oil is lightweight, absorbing quickly into the skin.
Pumpkin Seed Extract
Pumpkin seed extract is an extract from the pumpkin plant seed that is known for its mattifying properties on oily skin as a result of its peculiar optical properties. It is extremely high in sterols and squalene, which help provide a relipidifcation of the skin barrier. A restored skin barrier is a sign of healthy, calm skin!
Ximenia Seed Oil
Ximenia seed oil originates from the African savannah, and is rich in unsaturated fatty acids like oleic, ximenynic and nervonic acids. This helps protect, moisturize and restructure the skin. The fatty acid composition is also responsible for the lightweight, lubricious feel the oil offers to the skin without feeling greasy or heavy. Experiments have shown that Ubuntu Ximenia is useful for dry skin prone to early aging.

AHAs are known for their anti-aging benefits, as they weaken the bonds between dead skin cells to improve exfoliation. This blend will help brighten the skin and shed the dullness. Sunflower Seed Oil is the carrier oil for the extracts
