An Introduction to Herbivore Botanicals Facial Oils.

Did You Know 🌿 The smaller oil molecule of carrier oils used for facial oils (such as jojoba seed, rosehip seed, apricot kernal, grapeseed, and more) can penetrate into the skin and nourish it much more deeply than moisturizer can. 

Carrier oils are vegetable oils used to dilute essential oils so they are safe to apply to the skin. The best carrier oil is cold-pressed and made from plants. Cold-pressed oils hold onto more of their beneficial properties since they are not subjected to heat. It’s also best to choose unrefined oils that have no additives. Herbivore Facial Oils each uses a different carrier oil 

The Herbivore Botanicals Face Oils are intensive, 100% natural, skin-nourishing treatments made with a blend of rich antioxidants. The full line includes three different blends depending on your skin type: Orchid (Coconut Oil/Youth Preserving/Normal Skin), Phoenix (Jojoba Seed Oil/Cell Regenerating/Mature/Sensitive), and Lapis (Squalane Oil/Oil Balancing/Acne/Combination Skin).

  • Rosehip Oil: Comes from the fruit of the wild rose plant, naturally rich in essential fatty acids Omega 3, 6, and 9 that regenerate skin cells and repair damaged tissue. Rosehip is also high in trans-retinoic acid which aids in preventing premature aging. 
  • Sea Buckthorn Oil: The richest natural source of Beta Carotene available. Beta Carotene is a natural form of Vitamin A that penetrates deeply into the skin to restore and revitalize from within. 
  • CoQ10: An important naturally occurring substance that assists in producing biological energy within the cells. After the age of 30, the body produces less CoQ10 each year which in turn decreases the skin's natural collagen production and ability to regenerate skin cells. Nourishing the skin with natural CoQ10 can increase the skin's collagen production, leading to greater skin elasticity and less fine lines and wrinkles. It also boosts the skin's ability to regenerate itself. CoQ10 is a very small molecule that can easily penetrate into the skin. 
  • Chia Seed Co2: An excellent natural source of Alpha Lipoic Acid to smooth fine lines and decrease inflammation while increasing skin's natural glow and radiance. It is also the richest source of Omega 3 found in nature which makes it extra nourishing to the skin.
