Olive & Avocado Oils

I am careful what I use on my skin. What you put on the outside goes in, so as a general rule; if you wouldn’t eat it then you shouldn’t put it on your skin.

Some of my favourite things to eat are also some of my favourite ingredients!

Olive Oil

Olives and all of the products we extract from them are another one Mother Nature’s amazing gifts.

As a skin care ingredient it is emollient and conditioning; protecting the skin while at the same time letting it “breathe” and maintain its natural moisture levels. It is known to help neutralise free radicals and repair cell membranes. It is also rich in squalene - a naturally occurring substance found in plants, animals and humans which is often used in cosmetics as a moisturiser and to help regulate sebum. Olive oil also contains chlorophyll which can help to combat the signs of ageing and promote the healing of skin conditions and wounds.

With all of these talents it’s no wonder it’s such a special ingredient!

Avocado Oil

Avocado Oil is obtained from the pulp of the Avocado pear.

One of Nature’s true treasures it contains protein, amino acids, omega 3, 6, & 9 and is relatively high in vitamins A, D & E. It is easily absorbed into the skin, where its valuable properties reach even the deepest layer, making it an excellent choice for dry impoverished or aged skin. The sugars found in avocados boost collagen in the skin, which helps to make the skin firm and wrinkle free. It also helps fade out scars and other skin blemishes and is an excellent ingredient to include in formulations to help address skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
