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: Comfort - Sensitive Skin Botanical Soothing Face Oil is made with:
Plant oils - naturally packed with vitamins and omega oils to gently soothe, nourish and replenish sensitive skin.
Rosehip - wild harvested by hand in Bulgaria. Really good for soothing sensitive skin.
Marshmallow root (macerated in Sunflower oil) - organically produced in UK. Soothing on skin and helps maintain moisture.
Calendula (infused in Sunflower) - organically produced in UK. Classic for soothing irritated skin.
Rice Bran oil - A by-product of the rice milling process. Origin Mexico. Excellent for nourishing and softening skin.
Jojoba oil - organically produced in Israel. Improves suppleness of skin.
Plant extracts – to give skin that extra boost!
Bisabolol - A constituent of German Chamomile but can be obtained from the Candeia tree. It's incredibly soothing and calming on the skin and helps other ingredients penetrate the skin better. Also known to lessen skin redness and irritation. The bisabolol used here is a copy of the natural ingredient but has the exact same properties. This is to preserve the Candeia tree which is native to Brazil.
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 dervived 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 – Rose absolute. Chosen for its beautiful aroma and suitability for sensitive skin.
Ecocert is an international organic certification body for sustainable and ecological development.See www.ecocert.com for more information.
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.See www.rspo.org for more information or follow on twitter.
