What does that product actually do?

Have you ever looked at the description of a skincare product and felt clueless? What do some of those complicated looking words actually mean? "A great antioxidant," "rich in linoleic acid."

What are they?

Most of us just want to know what the product does in simple terms. Let's have a closer look.

1. Antioxidants

Substances that prevent or slow down damage to our skin cells

2. Anti-inflammatory

Reduces redness, puffiness and swelling.

3. Linoleic acid

Helps to make our skin stronger and healthier by protecting its barrier, keeping the moisture in and irritants out. Plant oils rich in linoleic acid include: avocado, rosehip, sunflower and evening primrose.

4. Omega fatty acids

Essential fatty acids like omega 3, 6 and 9 produce the skins natural oil barrier, these are important for keeping the skin hydrated, plump and fresher looking.

5. Non-comedogenic

Non-comedogenic products will not clog the pores in our skin; clogged pores can cause blackheads, whiteheads and acne.

6. Cold-pressed

Oils made without the addition of heat or chemicals, helping to maintain the essential nutrients and potency.

7. Free radicals

Break down collagen in the skin causing fine lines, blemishes, wrinkles, dark spots (basically everything we don't want!)

There are many more. If you have any questions about any of our descriptions or products and how they can help you, feel free to drop us a message using the chat icon below.
