This moisturizer is not only for those looking to simplify their nightly application, but also for those who've wanted to try some of the aspects of Enlightened Oil and Retin Rose. This affords all the best of each of them in one price point. You will only need to use a small amount daily of this creamy formula. You will find it is softer than Stiletto or SHU Healing Moisturizer because we've used Cupuacu Butter as the base.
The Cupuaçu Butter is thought to be superior to Shea Butter at penetrating the skin and retaining moisture. It is known to absorb damaging rays even though it does not have a number of its own for SPF protection. Studies have been done with it in hospitals and by large skincare companies, all with fantastic results on stronger collagen, decrease in skin problems, and improved cellular water retention anti-wrinkle)
We have added a small amount of Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter to provide a good array of solid fatty acids for the skin to use.
From there we took Black Cumin Seed oil from the Stiletto Moisturizer- a very important part of skin aging because Black Cumin Seed Oil is so high in fabulous plant sterols that nourish skin (thymoquinone is the most studied of these sterols and it's benefits range across nearly ALL skin issues). It has been shown to be an effective treatment for pigmentation issues, acne, skin cancer, bacterial and fungal infections.
Still writing this full description but the rest of the ingredients are...
Camellia (Green Tea) Seed oil- high in vitamin E. Reduces sun damage and causes skin to digest extra melanin (age spots)
Avocado Seed Oil - very important in the skin's metabolism of extra melanin (age spots) and anti-inflammatory action as well as high in cartenoids, lecithin, Vitamin D and E
Sacha Inchi Oil - from the Amazon Basin, this is also known as "Incan Peanut" and is a beautiful nutty oil high in natural Vitamin E and alpha-linolenic acid (not a common omega fatty acid and one the body cannot make itself). Alpha-linolenic acid is a great free radical scavenger and is shown to be a great anti-inflammatory. Also a known for reversing and preventing photo-aging (aging from sun exposure)
Sea Buckthorn Oil - wowza! This one is such an intense babe. I can barely describe how dark red this oil is, it truly resembles blood and when you touch a drop, it stains the skin orange. If you use Retin Rose Serum, you know what I mean! Obviously, the content of beta carotene and other forms of vitamin A in this oil are very very high. But Sea Buckthorn is not just about vitamin A at all. It's got some plant components that are hard to find and STIMULATE HEALING of all kinds of skin issues. This gem of an oil is FAST AND EFFICIENT HEALER due to rare finds like Palmitooleic Acid and Gamma Linoleic Acid. It is an oil that is highly penetrative and gets it's nutrients deeply into layers of the skin to jump start all kinds of healing.
Rose Hip Seed Oil - This is where the ever-sacred Retinol comes from in this formula. This famous form of vitamin A turns over skin cells at a faster rate and, thus, not only heals older issues, but also creates a brighter complexion by making brand new skin cells faster.
