Let's breakdown the benefits:
Egg yolks are rich in essential fatty acids which can lend moisture to the skin and create a radiant look. Applying egg yolks to your face helps to regenerate cells, and the presence of vitamin B3 is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Yolks are also high in Vitamin A, which is wonderful for acne prone skin. The proteins in eggs can help to improve elasticity. Contains Vitamins E and D.
Low in PUFAs
Our jojoba oil, grass-fed tallow, vitamin E, and essential oils are all low in PUFAs (Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids). This means that the ingredients are stable, and less prone to oxidation. In contrast, many food and beauty products are made with high-PUFA oils, which become rancid and create inflammation throughout the body. Not so here!
Calendula is rich in antioxidants, and is very nourishing to the skin. It can help to soothe irritation and reduce sensitivity, as well as decrease redness. Calendula’s skin-soothing benefits can likely be attributed to its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to limit trans-epidermal water loss. This can strengthen the skin’s defenses against potential irritants. Calendula is also particularly rich in linoleic acid, the most abundant fatty acid in the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Thus, calendula can help to maintain skin hydration and health.
Tallow is deeply nourishing and moisturizing. The fatty acids in tallow are much closer in molecular structure to the oils our own skin produces than the more commonly used plant oils. In addition, tallow is extremely rich in the same kinds of lipids present in youthful, vibrant skin. Being chock full of vitamins A, D, E, & K doesn't hurt either!
Beeswax is a humectant that can help the skin attract and retain moisture, as well as helping to form a protective layer. Contains anti-septic properties that can aid in healing, and Vitamin A which promotes regeneration.
The anti-inflammatory properties of marshmallow root may help relieve skin irritation caused by acne, furunculosis, eczema, and dermatitis, as well as aiding in wound healing. Marshmallow root may enhance the appearance of skin that has experienced UV damage.
Vitamin E oil
Vitamin E is antioxidant-rich and can improve your blood circulation. Its moisturizing properties can make your skin look firm and youthful, as well as helping to slow down the skin aging process. The combination of vitamin A (in things like egg yolks, beeswax, etc.) and vitamin E may help in removing acne-causing bacteria. Vitamin E can also reduce hyperpigmentation and scarring.
Turmeric is a strong anti-inflammatory and antiseptic agent that may be beneficial for areas of irritation and redness. Turmeric is believed to cleanse, clarify, smooth, calm, invigorate, and brighten the skin; generally supporting skin health. Turmeric may also diminish the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles.
Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense is a powerful astringent, which helps to protect skin cells. It can be used to help reduce blemishes and mask the appearance of large pores. Frankincense may also help to lift and tighten the skin.
Helichrysum Essential Oil
Much beloved for its many skin benefits, Helichrysum is known to have calming, soothing properties. Also called the 'Everlasting Flower', its oil is often incorporated into anti-aging skin aids. Helichrysum contains an anti-inflammatory substance called arzanol, which plays a part in healing wounds. Helichrysum can be used as a sun soother to calm irritated skin, as well as helping to promote healthy skin cell regeneration for a youthful glow.
I have combination skin so I only use it at night, I do my guasha routine with it and the skin feels so hydrated and soft the morning after. I like the subtle scent it has. Not irritating at all, a few drops is all you need if you hace oily skin.
I just put this on my face and thought to myself “ I hope I never run out of this !!!” I love the way it makes my face feel - and I have extremely sensitive skin. This serum nourishes my face and doesn’t feel oily at all. Praying that this will be in stock the next time I order something!!!
This is my favorite part of my morning skin routine! I get excited to put this serum on my face every morning! The smell is hard to describe but it smells divine and I can’t help smelling my hands after putting it on my face just to soak up the smell. It’s not greasy at all and makes my face feel like it just went to a spa! The ingredients are so beautiful and pure which is what I need for my sensitive skin. You won’t be disappointed with this serum!
