Product Highlight - Facial Radiance
This facial oil is not just your ordinary skin brightener and conditioning facial oil. It is carefully formulated with the most potent and pure ingredients complementing each other in all the right ways.
Facial Radiance is packed with Vitamin C, Evening Primrose Oil, Camellia Seed Oil and Squalane. It brightens your skin, fights the signs of aging and deeply moisturizes.
Vitamin C is essential for many cellular and skin functions, including collagen synthesis, maintaining skin strength and integrity, wound healing and free radical and UV protection. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that is naturally and normally found in the skin in high concentrations. As an antioxidant, it oxidizes (neutralizes) free radicals in the skin. Free radicals, which are formed from things like the sun, pollution, stress and smoking, damage the DNA of the cell, which can lead to premature aging and skin cancer. Vitamin C also boosts collagen production and reverses cell damage, which helps keep the skin firmer and even helps fade and prevent brown spots and pigmentation.
Vitamin C comes in different forms—L-ascorbic acid, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, ascorbyl palmitate and sodium ascorbyl phosphate, among others—but not all of them are equal in terms of stability and absorption rate. Most serums on the market contain vitamin C in the form of L-ascorbic acid, but most experts prefer the ester form, called tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, which they believe can be more effective. PUUR Ingrid Facial Radiance contains tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate for this reason.
A facial oil or serum with just vitamin C is not enough, studies show that combining it with equally potent ingredients can heighten its efficacy. Adding in oils like Evening Primrose Oil, Squalane and Camellia Seed Oil makes for a much more potent antioxidant with added benefits.
Evening Primrose Oil has the ability to balance hormones, has emollient properties, and is antioxidant rich. Evening Primrose Oil’s high gamma-linolenic acid content aids with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even improves skin’s elasticity and firmness. Evening Primrose Oil benefits skin because it is gentle, making it a suitable choice for all skin types, and is a perfect match for sensitive and irritated skin that may be suffering from acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Camellia Seed Oil has many of the same antioxidant qualities that green tea does, which makes sense: they’re both derived from the same plant. The oil of the Camellia sinensis, the plant from which all tea is made, has been used in Chinese skin care for hundreds of years. Its powerful anti-oxidizing quality removes free radicals from the skin, reducing the signs of aging. It’s also antimicrobial and antifungal, so is particularly good for acne-prone skin. This amber-hued oil is also a lovely moisturizer because of its exceptionally high oleic acid (omega – 9) content; it both cleanses the skin and leaves it feeling smooth.
Hydrated skin is healthy skin. So, for that reason Squalane is added to our Facial Radiance. Squalane is a multitasking moisturizer that leaves skin hydrated and visibly plump while minimizing the signs of redness and irritation. More hydrating than all other oils, Squalane mimics your skin's own moisture making it easily absorbed and very hydrating.
There are different theories and ideas out there about how and when to use a vitamin C antioxidant facial oils. Some experts believe that vitamin C skin care products should be applied at night in order to help skin repair itself while other sleep-restorative functions are taking place. Some believe that it should be applied during the day in order to help fight off free-radical damage as it accumulates through the day. We say, it doesn’t matter much which time of day you apply it; what matters more is that you remember to use it.
To protect the Vitamin C and other anti-oxidants from breaking down, PUUR Ingrid’s Facial Radiance is packed in a dark bottle. Please be mindful and store this facial oil in a dark and cool place.
