This soothing oil contains ingredients that mimic skin's natural membrane structure, providing protection of skin cells, literally filling the gaps, and allowing it to function correctly. Furthermore, we have added organic botanical extracts of Marshmallow, Dandelion, Calendula, Plantain and Arctic Oat for their advanced moisturising and calming properties for delicate skin.The result is an immediate increase in your skin's moisture levels and decreased erythema.

Sunflower Lecithin - Lecithin is an emollient, which is a softening and soothing agent. Its powerful moisturizing properties help to keep the skin hydrated, making it an excellent additive for restorative creams, or for products designed for dehydrated and overworked skin. It also has the unique ability to deeply penetrate the skin, and carry substances deep into the dermis. It is composed of phosphoric acid, choline, fatty acids, glycerol, glycolipids, triglycerides, and phospholipids.
Ginkgo Biloba - Extremely rich in quercetin, a natural flavonoid and antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties, Ginkgo is a powerful free-radical scavenger and an anti-aging active. Very beneficial for oily skin and clogged pores as well as for people with sensitive skin.
Plantain - Plantain's natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties make it great for speeding recover of wounds, itching or pain associated with skin problems.
Liquorice root - Liquorice contains various naturally-occurring compounds, including glabridin and liquiritin. Glabridin have been found to be successful at lightening the colour of skin. Studies have shown that glabridin also prevents UV-B induced pigmentation and exerts anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Liquiritin is particularly useful for treating melasma.
Dandelion Leaf - Dandelion is one of the richest sources of Vitamins A, C, and E. This group of vitamins together acts as powerful antioxidants. They help in arresting skin cell degeneration while also boosting collagen synthesis and general skin health.

Lemon Balm - Lemon balm is naturally rich in caffeic, ferulic and rosmarinic acids, which are potent antioxidants. It also contains powerful natural astringents called tannins. Besides, it also possesses important antibacterial properties. These make lemon balm highly effective for acne prone, oily and sensitive skin.
Perilla Seed Oil - One of the most beneficial oils for sensitive skin. Very high in linoleic, omega 3 and rosmarinic acid it is a strong anti-inflammatory, rich in antioxidants and an effective cleansing oil which is fabulous for clogged pores.

Arctic Oat CO2 Seed Extract (in sunflower oil)- Very beneficial for its anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and soothing properties. Ideal for a variety of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, acne and dry, itchy skin.
