Camellia Oleifera is a beauty

Camellia Oleifera is a beauty
Time to introduce another one of the plant oils that go into our Nourishing Face Oil - Organic Camellia Seed Oil or "Camellia Oleifera". ⠀

Camellia Seed oil is extracted from the seeds found on the flowers of Camellia Oleifera (tea plant.) It has a high amount of oleic acid and vitamin A, two powerful substances. ⠀

The oleic acid is an excellent carrier of cell rebuilding nutrients and bioactive compounds that help to repair damage caused by dryness and sun exposure. Meanwhile, Vitamin A in Camellia Seed oil is a form of retinol that stimulates the production of new skin cells! ⠀

Isn't nature amazing?!⠀

A Rosa Canina By Any Other Name...

A Rosa Canina By Any Other Name...

The famous quote from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet actually goes "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet..." Many people confuse the rose (Rosa Damascena) with the rosehip (Rosa Canina.) But they are very different.

The Rosehip fruit has been used in folk medicine for a long time to guard against the common cold and other illnesses, including gastrointestinal disorders and inflammatory disease.⠀ ⠀

Rosehip Oil is made from the seeds of the wild rose varieties which yield a rich, earthy-smelling oil. It is rich in vitamin C and has a high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids–which is why we love it in our Nourishing Face OilRosehip Oil also has antioxidant properties to protect against inflammation and oxidative stress (an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body).⠀

Clean first, last and always.

Clean first, last and always.
Maybe you’ve started to “clean up" your lifestyle and clean beauty is becoming increasingly important to you. Or maybe you’re just trying to figure it all out. Either way, we get you. Clean is everywhere these days, but what does it really mean and why is it important? 💁⠀

The skin is an organ that absorbs everything put on it, so it’s important for us to feature organic, plant-based ingredients in our formulations. 🌿 The same way we eat organic fruits and veggies to deliver powerful nutrients for our bodies, we apply organic plant oils to deliver powerful nutrients to our skin. ⠀

So, it’s really important to us that our Nourishing Face Oil is certified organic by the good people of Oregon Tilth. It's good to know that we can deliver a safe, high-quality product that delivers real benefits to our customers. 💚
