A little about each ingredient in this wondrous formulation…hold tight it’s a long list!
Hemp CBD is the new hero of skincare, it’s anti-aging, an anti oxidant and anti inflammatory. CBD provides a particle that a free radical can bond with, which stops it from going on to cause DNA damage delivering a power packed anti oxidant. Skin aging and inflammation are partners in crime and CBD combats oxidative stress. CBD delivers directly to your receptors, meaning your body is always ready and waiting to absorb the benefits it brings.
Hempseed oil is nothing new to our range, and you’ve all been beaten about the head from us regarding it’s benefits previously. It’s the perfect daily hydrator and moisturiser, rejuvenating and tightening your skin while leaving it plump and luscious with it’s high linoleic acid content. It combats redness, discolouration, dull oily skin, evening out skin tone and reducing pigmentation. This oil balances your own oil production, teaching your skin how to stay hydrated longer with each and every use.
Moringa and it’s oil was an ingredient that I was alerted to in Jamaica, and you’ll notice we use Moringa leaves in the eco dying of our organic Hemp bedlinens so it’s no real surprise it’s been added into this formulation. Moringa softens dry skin and maintains moisture, it’s beneficial for conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. It is high in antioxidants, fights free radical damage that cause skin tissue damage, plumps line and wrinkles and prevents sagging, The cytokinins promote cell growth and delay damage, whilst high in Vitamin C stabilising collagen and repairing damaged skin, dark spots and pigmentation and is naturally antiseptic and anti inflammatory.
Red Raspberry seed oil is high in Vitamin A and Vitamin E and essential fatty acids, linoleic, alpha linolenic and oleic acids all assisting to protect while replenishing moisture content. Wonderful for sensitive skin and rich in antioxidants giving a youthful glow to the skin you’re in. Studies also show absorption of UV-B and UV-C ranges and with a broad spectrum UV protectant so it’s SPF is yet another benefit.
Prickly Pear oil will be another oil you’ll be hearing a lot about in the skincare industry in the next few years, it has exceptional hydrating and anti aging qualities. It contains the highest Vitamin E of any oil available 150% more than the much loved Argan oil and the highest ratio of fatty acids (88%) making it a powerhouse for your skin health. It’s also high in Betalains super antioxidants with powerful anti aging properties.
Pomegranate seed oil stimulates keratinocytes (major cells that are found in the outer layer of your skin) it assists to reverse damage and revive your skin. It contains punicic acid and omega 5 fatty acid that fights inflammation and it’s yet another one of the included oil that provides protection against sun damage, something we all need to be very aware of here in Australia. Fabulous for oily skin and all skin types it creates a lasting moisture without residue and controls breakouts, reduces scarring and soothes.
Passionseed oil also known as Maracuja oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, Vitamin E and A carotenoids and our favourite linoleic acid helping to slow the signs of aging and particularly strong in reducing inflammation, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Olive Squalane - as one of the first skincare businesses to use this wonder in our formulations we are of course including this in our Ritual Serum. It’s positive effects on uneven skin pigmentation, scare and age spots is second to none. Much like retinol (but so much kinder) it fights free radicals caused by UV rays. Squalane fades these spots over time and as it penetrates so deeply it boosts natural collagen adding yet another layer of anti aging punches to this intentional formulation.
Hyaluronic Acid (a naturally occurring substance) plays a crucial role in skin health remembering it’s ability to hold in moisture at 1000 times it’s own weight. It’s what’s known as a ‘smart nutrient’ as it adjusts it’s own moisture absorption rate based on the humidity. It protects your skin from the UV-B rays which can cause sun spots, increases skin smoothness, the flattening and plumping of wrinkles and significantly improves elasticity.
Our use of essential oils in our formulations is so much more than just a pretty scent, we use exclusively organic permaculture oils in line with our ethos and love of all things Mother Nature provides and in the Ritual Serum we have chosen these for specific reasons.
- Clary sage oil – hormone & oil regulating, reduces lines, wrinkles & inflammation.
- Frankincense oil – improves elasticity, fades pigmentation, scars and age spots.
- Patchouli oil – promotes new cell growth, reduces lines and wrinkles, antiseptic.
- Sandalwood oil – improves circulation, reduces dryness, anti inflammatory, calming.
Ecoistic ‘High-er Ground’ anti aging Ritual Serum is best applied as a small amount (3-5 drops) on a damp face, neck and chest. This application method facilitates penetration and absorption. Use morning and night and in place of a moisturiser and/or primer under cosmetics. Before using, give the bottle a good shake to mix the organic and active properties.
