Jojoba – Jojoba is chemically a wax, as opposed to an oil. Jojoba is nature’s own ceramides, a waxy lipid that is found in our skin sebum and essential to a healthy lipid barrier. ‘Ceramide’ means unit of measurement of wax and waxes are found throughout many whole plants. Jojoba is known for resembling our skin’s natural wax barrier more than any other plant; and unrefined raw Jojoba has the ability to restore a damaged skin barrier on its own.
Calendula – Calendula is a plant that is a true necessity for healthy skin. It is deeply restorative and healing on a cellular level, with an abundance of carotenoids and resins that our skin can use with ease. It is excellent for aiding the healing of skin damage. Cholesterol is another lipid found in our skin’s protective barrier, and Calendula mirrors that with its high phytosterol content. The Delicate Barrier process begins with seeding Calendula flowers at our partnering farms, and eventually leads to a 3-month infusion process. To ensure we are capturing the full range of phytosterols and the other beneficial constituents Calendula offers, we combine our proprietary maceration process with a Calendula whole-plant pressurized concentrate.
Pomegranate Oil – This is quite possibly the most beautiful oil that we work with. It is rich and thick by nature, but penetrates deeply and is incredibly healing to skin barriers that have been damaged over time by inflammation.
Evening Primrose Seed Oil – This California-made oil is freshly pressed and produced exclusively for our line. It reduces inflammation with its vast essential fatty acid profile, while also aiding in reducing the appearance of fine lines and scarring.
Cranberry Fruit + Seed Oil – Our Cranberries are delicately dried and cold pressed to create one of my favorite seed oils. Cranberry Seed Oil is high in resveratrol, polyphenols, and essential fatty acids 3, 6, and 9. It is a cooling anti-inflammatory, rich in tannins + strengthening minerals.
