Of special note

(Note that oils used for skincare are often treated in order to overcome their impurities but manufacturers are under no legal obligation to mention this on the label).

About the ingredients
Apricot Oil (obtained by cold pressing the kernels) contains essential fatty acids, specifically, oleic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid and linolenic acid amongst others. These have been proven to prevent water loss and create a smooth, silky finish to the skin.
Jojoba oil acts as an emollient, increasing the feeling of softness and smoothness of skin. It forms an effective barrier preventing water loss, while enhancing the restorative properties of the skin. Its moisturizing effect is thought to be due to its penetration into the upper layers of the stratum corneum thus increasing skin hydration. Indigenous Americans used jojoba oil to help heal wounds. It is an anti-inflammatory. It is the closest natural product to wax esters in human sebum.
Safflower Oil is easily absorbed on the skin and its emollient action helps to keep skin soft and smooth. The oil also contains essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linoleum acids, which can help make dry skin look and feel better.
Neroli 5% Essential Oil
Neroli 5% Essential Oil (cold pressed from orange blossom) is a delightfully aromatic oil with therapeutic properties that come from its many beneficial components.
Rose Geranium Essential Oil
Rose Geranium Essential Oil is a delightfully aromatic oil that is prized for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities.
How we make our Facial Oil 01
To prepare this facial oil we hand blend the five different oils in the correct proportions and pour the result into small, violet, Miron glass bottles, which aid preservation.
Nowadays, manufacturers have become so frightened of litigation that their products come with dire warnings and super cautious advice. We won’t be left out of this! If you swallow this product contact a poison centre or doctor, immediately. Ditto if you splash it in your eye. However, just so you know, the ingredients are all plant based and – in the quantities present – pretty unlikely to cause any health issues. If you get some in your eye the first thing to do (before you start calling the poison centre/doctor) is to bathe the afflicted area with water. If you spill some by accident we advise swearing, as it is too valuable to waste.
