Bakuchiol Oil - the plant based alternative to Retinol
DESCRIPTION There are seven different oils in this Bakuchiol Lip Oil blend. Each one has great benefits for your skin. We've formulated different blends to target specific problems we occasionally find that affect our lips. Here are the benefits of the ingredients in this little bottle.
BAKUCHIOL OIL - Retinol is used in skincare for collagen production and can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a fresher, plump appearance. But it can cause soreness on lips as the skin is much thinner than the rest of the face. So a safe plant alternative can help those fine lines, restores skin elasticity, and lightens pigmentation with none of the irritation caused by using Retinol
SAFFLOWER OIL - is a great oil for balancing the the sebum levels in the skin. This is important as too much leads to oily skin or acne and too little causes dryness.
SWEET ALMOND OIL - is very nourishing and moisturizing for your lips as it contains lots of vitamins and minerals. It's found in many skincare products as it also helps to improve complexion and skin tone.
GRAPESEED OIL - has a high concentration of antioxidants. These help to protect skin from free radicals (atoms that in excess can damage skin cells). It also is very nourishing and moisturising.
CASTOR SEED OIL - is a fantastic humectant. This means it helps retain skin moisture by preventing water loss through the outer layer of your skin keeping your lips hydrated and protected.
OLIVE SQUALANE- if your lips are already dry or chapped, Olive Squalane is great for helping repair and soothe them. It reverses the damaging done to your lips and then helps to keeps them soft and plump.
SEA BUCKTHORN SEED OIL - is used in skincare and medication for its great ability to fight dryness throughout the body. Its anti-inflammatory and cell-regenerative properties help to heal and prevent chapped lips and cold sores.
HOW TO USE Tip the bottle upside down and let 2 or 3 drops fall onto your finger. Gently dab onto lips. For extra nourishment massage for a little longer into surrounding skin. You won't need anymore than a few drops each time so these bottles last for ages. On first use the bottle might be slow to let the drops out but be patient its worth the wait!
GOOD TO KNOW We try to source as many organic and fair trade ingredients as possible. Our products are made regularly in small batches so colours of the oils may change from time to time.
We love to recycle and are always on the lookout for better packaging. These glass bottles and can be recycled once finished and rinsed out. The rest cannot be put into domestic recycling but TerraCycle does accept the full empty bottle. Alternatively you can always reuse even these little bottles in many alternative ways. See our blog about creative uses for them.
