Every day your skin is subjected to a variety of outside stimuli that can cause it damage; sunlight, pollution and changes in temperature can all compromise the skin barrier, causing inflammation and oxidative stress on the skin cells.
In ideal circumstances, your skin will do a pretty good job of maintaining a barrier against the outside world, but the effects of time and the environment do compromise it, leading to skin thinning, loss of elasticity, roughness, wrinkling and dryness. And facial skin - being delicate and constantly exposed to the elements - suffers more than most.
If you want to fortify your skin’s defences, you need something that will help maintain the integrity of the skin barrier while also fighting inflammation and oxidative stress on the skin cells. Luckily, you don’t need complicated chemical formulations to achieve this - simple oils derived from plants will do an excellent job without any of the hazards of artificial fragrances and preservatives.
Face Food has been formulated to nourish your face with all the reinforcement it needs to keep up its defences. It’s naturally rich in linoleic fatty acids (which help maintain the skin’s water barrier), tocopherols, carotenoids, triterpenes, flavonoids and phenolic acids, which all protect against the ravages of oxidative stress and assist with tissue repair. It also contains an abundance of anti-inflammatories to soothe irritation, reduce redness and restore your complexion and skin tone.
These oils - derived from seeds, fruits and flowers - not only nourish your skin but impart a spiritually grounding, woodsy aroma.
