Nourishing and balancing facial oil to support your skin’s natural barrier.
Formulated to suit all skin types, this nourishing oil balances sebum production, supports the skin and promotes elastin and collagen production. With a blend of organic jojoba oil and nine skin-loving essential oils, it nurtures your skin’s natural barrier and adds radiance to your skin without feeling oily or overloaded.
Rich in skin repairing vitamins A, B, D and E, essential fatty acids, omegas 6 & 9 along with antioxidant properties to help balance out the skin, complete gaps between skin cells and protect against accelerated ageing.
Around 30% of the skin’s sebum (the oil that your skin produces) is a natural wax ester, helping to kill germs and bacteria whilst creating a barrier for locking in moisture and protection. We start to lose this natural wax ester over time leaving our skin looking dry, tired and dull.
Skin Elixir helps to replenish this natural wax using jojoba oil, which penetrates deep into the layers of the skin to replenish, restore and rebalance. It also works to help the skin create elastin and collagen - a must for bouncy, hydrated and healthy skin. These essential components of the skin naturally diminish as we age, so replenishing them is important.
The results? Balanced, luminous skin that radiates a natural glow.
Suitable for all skin types, especially menopausal or maturing skin.

The role of collagen and elastin in your skin
Collagen is a protein that makes up around 80% of your skin and it’s responsible for providing structure and connection of the skin across your whole body. It works with another protein called elastin. When combined, they work together to help give skin a supple, firm and bouncy appearance.
Over time your body naturally makes less collagen and elastin, which is why skin can start to look drier and less firm as you age. Your lifestyle, diet, smoking and sun exposure also make a difference to your natural collagen stores too. It’s a completely natural process that happens to everyone.
You can take measures to safeguard your natural collagen and elastin stores. SPF is a must when it comes to protecting your skin from damage, including damage to your collagen and elastin (known as oxidisation). The higher the SPF, the more protection for your skin. Antioxidants, such as vitamin C, can also help to limit skin damage. Keeping your skin moisturised is also an important part of fighting against the appearance of collagen loss.
Some lifestyle changes can also help to support your skin, as well as your overall health and wellbeing - which is also incredibly important. A good sleep schedule, healthy diet, exercise and skipping harmful habits like smoking can all make a huge difference to your skin and how you feel in yourself.
