About Evening Primrose Oil:
One of the common names for Evening Primrose is "kings cure all", and this name reflects the wide range of healing powers ascribed to this plant. The oil is extracted from the seeds and is rich in GLA (gamma linoleic acid.) It has been shown to have anti-aging, antioxidant properties and also acts as an anti-inflammatory, helping to reduce redness and discolouration. Research suggests that the oil may help in treating skin disorders like eczema, adult acne, etc.
About Peach Kernel Oil:
A light yet rich, fine-textured oil, easily absorbed and with wonderful revitalising, nourishing, regenerative and moisturising properties. It helps prevent dehydration, smoothes wrinkles and encourages elasticity and suppleness in all skin types. It is especially beneficial for sensitive or inflamed skin, such as eczema or psoriasis and is also good for delicate or mature complexions. Its regenerative and tonic effects help to cleanse and tighten the pores of the skin. This oil contains vitamins E & E and is also high in essential polyunsaturated fatty acids.
About Grape Seed Oil:
Light, fine and non-greasy, this oil penetrates easily and quickly. The oil is water dispersible and is suitable for all skin types. Extremely soothing and an excellent emollient, it is ideal for delicate and mature skin and is finer even than sweet almond, and therefore absorbs more quickly, leaving the skin feeling satiny soft. Its slightly astringent nature may also help tone the skin. High in vitamin E, as well as other vitamins, minerals and proteins, it is a natural antioxidant. It also contains a high percentage of linoleic acid, (omega 6) an essential fatty acid.
