Pomegranate seed oil is an exceptional cosmetic ingredient and aids in the production of collagen. It is full of antioxidants like Punic acid (Omega 5), Vitamin K, C, B6, Folate and Potassium, and helps heal blemishes and scars. It also revitalises dull, dry hair and protects it from pollution. It has excellent regenerative and anti-inflammatory benefits, making it a powerful healer for mature and dry skin.
Rich in vitamin E, almond oil protects the skin against oxidative stress. It also helps prevent acne and puffiness under the eyes.
Moringa oil has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties along with anti-ageing benefits. It also rejuvenates dull, tired skin. Extracted from the seeds of Moringa Oleifera, this oil is extremely rich in phytonutrients, light on the skin and makes for an excellent moisturiser.
With a long history of usage in folk medicine, the unique high-fatty acid and high vitamin content of sea buckthorn oil make it beneficial for skin, hair, and nails. It has high anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural moisturiser, cleanser and exfoliator for a golden glow.
