We think it's valuable to know what you are putting on your skin, why it's included in the product and how it was produced:
Wow Botanical Face Lifting Oil is made with:
Plant oils - naturally packed with vitamins and omega oils to nourish, condition, rejuvenate, hydrate and promote skin elasticity.
Walnut oil - This is sourced locally from Granary Oils, Warwickshire. Here walnuts are grown and cold pressed on the farm just a few miles away from where the product is made. It's great to work directly with the farmer. Visit www.granaryoils.co.uk to find out more. Walnut oil is excellent for nourishing mature skin.
Macadamia - organically produced in Italy. Has a high content of plamitic acid which is vital to slow skin's aging process. As it is a fatty oil it also protects skin against elements.
Pumpkin seed oil - organically produced in UK. Has a lifting effect on skin.
Argan - organically produced in Morocco. Stimulates, protects and regenerates, making skin soft, supple and elastic.
Baobab - organically produced in Kenya. Softens and rehydrates skin. Great for tackling wrinkles.
Plant extracts – to give skin that extra boost!
Acmella flower extract has a remarkable ability to visibly firm and smooth the skin, so giving it a lifted appearance. It has been hailed by some as botox in a bottle! The extract is 100% natural and extracted from the buds which are harvested by hand so the plant is preserved. It is grown in South Africa by a co-operative of farmers in a bid to develop the local African economy.
Rosemary extract is added as an antioxidant to naturally prolong the shelf life of the product. It's organically produced in the UK and often used in food.
Vitamins – Antioxidants to promote healthy skin growth and keep lines at bay. The Vitamin E used is natural and extracted from non GM crops. Vitamin A doesn't occur naturally but is derived from plant sources, usually palm oil. We are certain to only use Vitamin A derived from sustainable palm oil according to RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) certification.
Emollient – (Isoamyl laurate, isoamyl cocoate). This is included as it aids the rapid absorption of oils and makes the product less greasy. It has a silky, luxurious feel on the skin and is made from renewable natural sources such as sugar and coconut. It is Ecocert certified for use in natural and organic cosmetics.
Pure Essential oils – Frankincense, Geranium and Patchouli, all of which are organically produced. Chosen to soothe, tone and balance maturing skin.
Ecocert is an international organic certification body for sustainable and ecological development.

RSPO is the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
They stress that sustainable production is the way to go, rather than boycotting palm oil altogether. Some very interesting reading and education.
