An extraordinary oil, light and easily absorbed, yet rich and deeply nourishing. This oil is host to a range of five star ingredients in very meaningful quantities. Rich in antioxidants to halt damaging chain reactions caused by free radicals and a broad range of fatty acids that boost lipid content, bolstering skin barrier and helping the skin retain moisture. Rosehip Oil, Borage Oil and Baobab Oil all contain large amounts of essential fatty acids (the ones your body cannot make itself). Borage also contains GLA a fatty acid normally synthesised in the body but often not synthesised by sufferers of atopic skin conditions like eczema.
Lyonsleaf's homegrown and homemade, deep orange Calendula oil calms irritated skin and, along with the deep green (unrefined) Avocado oil, gives this product it's dark, rich, wholesome colour. But the star of the show is the Marshmallow extract - a very potent dose of it (Marshmallow macerated oil makes up a whopping 50% of this product). Marshmallow has acquired a reputation as a saviour of problem skin an anti-ager and rejuvenator, it improves a cells ability to hold moisture, plumping skin to erase fine lines. Marshmallow softens and restores the most tired and damaged skin. Lyonsleaf made this as a facial oil, but try it on chapped heels, elbows or hands damaged by water or gardening, it's ability to repair is remarkable, rejuvenating tissue that is irritated, chapped or inflamed.
The absence of water means the product is made with nothing but high performance ingredients and it is bursting with vitamins and beneficial compounds. Lyonsleaf have scented this oil with a light woody floral scent only from essential oils and rose flower extract, but there is also an unscented version for very sensitive types or skincare purists.
This product is made from 100% natural plant oils. The absence of water means it does not require emulsifiers or harsh anti-microbial preservatives (parabens, phenoxyethanol, formaldehyde etc). We naturally omit artificial colour and fragrance.
