Protective Day Oil
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are crucial to building and maintaining healthy skin from the cell membranes to the natural oil barrier. The right balance of omega-6/omega-3 oils applied topically will help prevent inflammation. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a special type of omega-3, prevents wrinkles by blocking UV- induced enzymes that destroy collagen. Spectra tests on PROTECTIVE DAY OIL show high levels of UV protection in the long wavelength, UVA range, probably due to its high carotenoid content.
• Kiwi Seed and Chia Seed Oils: Provide hard-to-get omega-3s from plant sources.
• Algae Oil: High in epa, moderates inflammation while blocking uv-induced enzymes that destroy collagen.
• Olive + Sesame Seed Oils + Helichrysum Essential Oil: Anti-inflammatory.
• Pomegranate Seed, Tomato Seed and Broccoli Seed Oils: Provide special antioxidant protection from carotenoids and sulforaphane (a compound with sun protective properties).
• Astaxanthin and Red Raspberry Seed Oil: Provide environmental protection because they help absorb uv rays.
