Rosehip fruit oil, Apricot kernel oil and Evening primrose oil

Geek info

Our ANTI-AGE night cream contains multiple natural oils: Rosehip fruit oil, Apricot kernel oil and Evening primrose oil. These oils contain high levels of unsaturated fatty acids which have proven to interact very well with the skin, without clogging the pores. They provide excellent protective and hydrating properties, such as improving the skin barrier function, smoothing the skin and reducing transepidermal water loss. These oils also contain fat soluble vitamins (such as Vitamins A, D, E and K). Apricot oil has been documented as helpful for itchy or flakey skin. Evening primrose oil contains an important fatty acid called gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which is a precursor of the prostaglandins involved in anti-inflammatory pathways. Rosehip seed oil is rich in the essential fatty acid linoleic acid, which is important for skin barrier function and reducing skin water loss.
