Apricot Kernel Oil – acts as a non-greasy emollient, high amounts of essential fatty acids maintain the balance of moisture and fill in gaps between skin cells to leave skin silky and hydrated. Oleic, linoleic and linolenic acids are friendly fats that fight off acne, inflammation and dryness while locking in moisture. LinOleic Acid strengthens the skin’s barrier function and Oleic Acid is a common emollient and emulsifier used in cosmetics to soften and heal the skin. High doses of vitamin E boosts the skin’s ability to retain elasticity and clarity. Antioxidant vitamin E combats free-radical damage and inflammation. The oil’s unsaturated fatty acids enhance elasticity by making cell membranes more flexible. Antioxidant vitamin C promotes collagen production, which gives skin extra stability and suppleness. Vitamin C, alongside vitamin E, also masks ageing marks by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Similarly, the vitamin A in Apricot Kernel Oil repairs UV-related skin damage and smooths skin to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and rough skin. Apricot Oil is one of the oils that has a lipid content similar to that of your skin.

Also beneficial in relieving the itch and irritation of eczema-ridden skin.
Sunflower Seed Oil – The fatty acids found in Sunflower Seed Oil help to restore the natural barrier of the skin. A 2013 study examined the effects of Sunflower Seed Oil on the adult skin barrier and found that the oil preserved stratum corneum integrity, did not cause erythema, and improved hydration in the volunteers. The stratum corneum is composed of corneocytes (dead skin cells) held together by a lipid barrier. In addition to fatty acids, the barrier consists of ceramides and cholesterol. A deficiency in these essential lipids can lead to a weak or damaged barrier, which can subsequently allow harmful things like allergens, bacteria, and irritants to pass through the skin. This results in symptoms of dryness, itching, and irritation, and may lead to the development of skin conditions like acne, eczema, and even signs of ageing. Using ingredients that replenish the skin’s barrier, such as Sunflower Seed Oil, can help to prevent these problems.Sunflower Seed Oil provides anti-inflammatory effects due to its high composition of linOleic Acid. LinOleic Acid hydrates the skin and improves elasticity, and also has an effect on certain inflammatory mediators. The anti- inflammatory properties of Sunflower Seed Oil make this an excellent ingredient for those with symptoms of dry, flaky, or irritated skin. Rich in nutrients such as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and vitamins A, K and E, it is used effectively against inflammation and general irritations of the skin. Being very high in vitamin E, it acts as an emollient which traps moisture and keeps skin well hydrated. It also helps prevent damage to cells by ultraviolet light and aids against premature ageing of skin by protecting the collagen and elastin content.Sunflower is a source for beta-carotene which is converted to vitamin A with benefits of protection from sun damage and free radicals. Omega-6 (linOleic Acid) which is found in Sunflower Oil, assists with cell development and treating disorders such as eczema, acne and scarring.
