Oils on Your Face

Today's Hamilton Spectator carried an article entitled, "Oil up - your face will thank you" (link http://www.thespec.com/living/style/article/497810--oil-up-your-face-will-thank-you). The gist of the article is that oils are GOOD for your face.
Well, on that point, eScential Wellness was ahead of its time. My best seller is my Facial Serum...a blend of 13 natural carrier oils, specifically chosen for their skin enhancing qualities. All of the oils are high in naturally occurring antioxidants, and/or GLA (gamma linoleic acid; a key component in cell wall structure.) All of the oils are light weight, easily absorbed, and do not have a greasy feel. For the majority of normal/combination skins, I recommend my Sheer Facial Serum. This is the original serum diluted with organic aloe vera gel. Aloe vera gel alone has been implicated in hydration, healing, and is a terrific anti-inflammatory. That's why it's so renowned for sunburns. In addition, there is speculation that aloe vera gel may enhance natural collagen production.
One thing the above article does not mention is that according to the book "Do it Gorgeously" by Sophie Uliano, "A major concern about commercial skin care products is that they can be full of all kinds of chemicals that actually have an adverse effect on the skin." Furthermore, almost the entirety of commercial moisturizer ingredients exist in the product to make it, the product, feel nice, smell nice, or keep it preserved. Not to improve your skin. The vast majority of moisturizers have very little, if any, active skin care ingredients. And, often, if there is some excellent ingredient promoted on the product, it is often present in such a small amount that it is not able to do any good.
eScential Wellness' Refresh and Rejuvenate Facial Serum has no less than 4% of any ingredient. As it contains no water, it needs no preservatives. Carrier oils, especially ones high in antioxidants, are naturally long lived. There is no added color, and, it is lightly scented with natural, plant derived, gas chromatograph tested essential oils.
Check out this article and book for yourself. Then check out eScential Wellness Facial Serum. Make your own decision.
