Benefits: This gorgeous balm includes the rare and precious Prickly Pear seed oil which is rich in antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids and contains even more vitamin E than argan oil (which we’ve also included).
One of the rarest beauty oils in the world, Prickly Pear seed oil is rich in antioxidants, amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamin E and vitamin K. This precious, nutrient-rich, fast absorbing oil is also high in linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that enhances elasticity and penetrates to the skin’s deepest layers to provide intense hydration for all skin types.
The high vitamin E and amino acid content stimulates collagen production and protects skin cells against free radicals whilst the very high level of vitamin K in this incredible oil helps eliminate dark under-eye circles.
Essential fatty acids hydrate skin and reduce oiliness by regulating cell membranes to keep water and vital nutrients in while flushing pore-clogging cellular waste and fats out.
Anti-ageing CoQ10 is important for the health of virtually all human tissues. This vital nutrient plays an essential role in the production of energy in your cells. It protects your skin from the damaging effects of free radicals, UV rays and pollution but around the age of 30, your body’s ability to produce it declines rapidly. Skin also loses the ability to hold water in its cells and as a result, begins to lose its firmness and elasticity. Applying CoQ10 to your skin can help restore the levels of this vital nutrient in your skin's cells, giving you a more glowing, youthful complexion.
CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that plays an essential role in the production of energy in all cells and also protects your skin from the damaging effects of free radicals and pollution.
