Precious & Nourishing Facial Oil Palmarosa • Step 4
Rich in antioxidants, these intensive oil treatments aid the skin's ability to protect against UV rays and fight free radical damage as Step 4 in our 5-Step Facial Regimen. Antioxidants are known as free radical scavenging substances, helping to protect the skin from oxidation, and therefore improving its resistance to environmental damage. Easily transported into the epidermis, these nutritious cellular regenerators can often have a greater effect than a moisturizer alone.
Our Palmarosa Oil is ideal for normal to dry skin. This oil is highly concentrated, and makes an excellent treatment applied immediately after spraying the skin with a Crystal Radiance of choice.
Apply 4-6 drops Antioxidant Facial Oil immediately after spraying with Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir. Massage into the skin evenly with fingertips.
If the oil becomes solid, run the bottle under hot water to liquefy.
Customers tell us a .5 oz bottle lasts 4-6 months, depending on usage.
The Precious & Nourishing Antioxidant Facial Oils: Palmarosa, Geranium, and Anti-Inflammatory were developed to address environmental harm associated with depleted, unhealthy skin and aging.
Antioxidants have long been reputed to fight free radical damage, with regards to targeting cell oxidation. It was therefore my inclination to create a formula that focused on protection through delivering nutrients further into the dermis of the skin to address free radical elimination.
With this in mind the quest was to find nutrients in the botanical world that have antioxidant protection and anti-oxidizing effects often caused by the atmosphere, including but not limited to UVA and UVB rays.
Protection then is described as something that assists the skin’s ability to receive and utilize nutrients that further its longevity and survival level, as opposed to conventional protection, meaning to a cover the skin with a mineral or chemical block. Such products blanket the skin with a barrier to keep the sunrays from penetrating and are commonly known as a Sun Protection Factor.
Instead, the Precious & Nourishing Antioxidant Oils deliver a synergy of botanical nutrients that enhances our immunity and skin strength to combat degradation at the cellular wall. Otherwise, we are only preventing burning and not considering what lies beneath.
Evidence has shown that these chemicals can be dehydrating to the skin’s early and rapid aging process, hence contributing to the breakdown of the skin’s longevity, strength and endurance. All of which are renewed with specifically formulated nutrient-rich synergies, with the addition of bioavailable antioxidants.
It is important to note that although we do not incorporate SPFs, evidence has shown that with the use of our Precious & Nourishing Oils, the sun is less able to burn the skin and cause redness. This is due in part to their natural antioxidant filtering effect.
For prolonged outdoor exposure use our Defense & Repair Elixir, Defense & Repair Oil and Defense & Repair Crème from the Ombra Del Sole Series of Benedetta preparations.
