Evening Primrose Oil’s therapeutic nature is primarily due to its essential fatty acid content which is highly beneficial to all layers of the skin. The topical application of essential fatty acids, primarily Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA), enhances the epidermal barrier and shows evidence of modulating inflammatory reactions in the skin. Its high level of antioxidants helps increase the skin’s elasticity, reduces fine lines and lightens dark circles around the eyes. This precious oil also regulates the functioning of the oil glands, helping dry, combination or oily skin regulate itself. It absorbs quickly and is non-comedogenic, so it does not block pores.
Argan Oil stimulates cell renewal and boosts elasticity while smoothing the skin. Its Vitamin E and fatty acids are excellent for repairing damaged skin and providing it with nutrients which will prevent further dryness and irritation, leaving it plumper and softer. Argan oil is nature’s protective and nourishing superfood for the skin, it seals moisture in and protects the skin from free-radicals and other damaging effects from the outside environment. Great on oily skins too, it works to rebalance oil production and it is non-comedogenic.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil is easily absorbed and helps balance the oil production of the skin. Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and antioxidants help in reducing the damage to the skin by the elements, making skin look and feel younger. It naturally helps your skin to effectively form a barrier to lock moisture in and deliver nutrients deep into your epidermis.
Apricot Kernel Oil’s high Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA) content enables your skin to maintain its moisture balance. GLA also helps tone and firm up your skin, while Vitamins A and E slow down the signs of ageing. The rehydrating properties in this oil, together with its anti-inflammatory properties, make it a natural moisturiser for any type of skin.
Rice Bran Oil is a natural, vital source of Vitamins A, B2, B12 and E, which help increase elasticity, promote collagen production and work to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks to its Squalane content, it promotes skin’s natural regeneration leading to younger, fresher looking skin. It is rich in Inositol, Gamma Oryzanol and Ferulic Acid: all potent anti-oxidants and nourishing deep-moisturisers. Antioxidants like Beta-Carotene and Lycopene protect from free-radical damage and enzymes like CoQ10 infuse the skin with active components that help it maintain its youthful glow.
Radiance Renewal is not a water based cream. We chose instead to pack it with highly active ingredients that truly nourish the skin: a little really goes a long way! Free from artificial binders, Radiance Renewal is subject to the environment so can change consistency over time – just give it a gentle stir to bring it back to its ideal texture.
Our advice is to use a very small amount of Radiance Renewal to start with and increase the quantity if your skin seems to need more. Oily skins usually want very little product; dry skins might need more and may absorb it quicker. Skin types change according to the weather too so you might experience oilier skin in the summer and dryer skin on windy days. No need for two separate products: just fine tune the quantity you use with the needs of your skin in that particular moment.
We recommend using a bit more product in the evening, right before bedtime as skin cell renewal rate is higher at night and the nourishing oils will help your skin regenerate itself, naturally.
If using our Gentle Purifying Cleansing Oil or Deeply Purifying Cleansing Balm in synergy with Radiance Renewal, you might notice your skin going towards a more neutral type as both products work to rebalance the skin’s oil production.
