Glow

The final step to all scientifically sound skin routines is a good finishing oil.  The difference between a finishing oil and all other oils is it low viscosity or “thiness”.  You want your finishing oil to be almost water like so it sits lighly on the skin and penetrates deeply leaving you with soft, supple skin – instead ofa greasy oily mess.  A good finishing is worth its weight in gold!


Glow deep conditioning finishing oil is the ideal blend of premium oils, plant derived multivitamins, and antioxidants to give you a radiant, youthful glow! The non-comedogenic blend features a high concentration of diverse omega fatty acids, vitamins C & E as well as skin balancing squalane, argan and jojoba oil, with age defying CoQ10 - making this the perfect finish to your daily routine. Specially formulated for deeper skin penetration, when applied directly to trouble spots (like under the eyes, around the nose and lips) this facial oil will instantly treat you to supple, nourished, and silky skin! The essential oils of lavender, rosemary and chamomile are the perfect blend of soothing and calming while reducing overall inflammation and puffiness. Use this for a smooth finish after applying balance facial moisturizer.


The key ingredient in Glow is CoEnzyme Q10.  Lack of CoQ10 results in an impeded ability to produce collagen and elastin causing sagging and wrinkles. Also acts as a strong antioxidant and reduces wrinkles and “crow's feet.”  Squalane can help regulate excess oil production as well and is naturally antibacterial. Squalane also helps protect your skin from free radicals that can cause age spots and premature aging and over time may even help fade dark pigment.  

Vitamin C is necessary for collagen production and maintenance, also a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals in the skin. It helps even out skin tone. Our Vitamin C is oil soluable and does not oxidise readily.  Vitamin E blocks free radicals and replenishes lipids which slows down the aging process. It also helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Sea Buckthorn is thought to help heal burns, cuts, wounds, sunburn, rashes, and other types of skin damage. It is also sspected to help in cell regeneration.  The antioxidants found in Rosehip oil , which combat free radicals that cause damage, and vitamin A, combined with the oil's essential fatty acid profile, help improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation especially in sun damaged skin!


Many people have told us that the oil also allows them to use far less makeup and acts a great “prestep” to applying their  sunscreen and makeup. Finishing oils can also help block some of the pollutants in the air from penetrating your skin and getting into your bloodstream!
