Wild Rosehips Carrier Oil
Naturally occurring tretinoin, which is up to twenty times more potent than retinol, is the main active plant component of our Wild Rosehips Carrier Oil. Our Rosehip oil is extracted from the organic, crimson-colored fruit of the rose. Both the fruit and the seeds inside it are brimming with skin-saving plant compounds including vitamins C and E, abundant essential fatty acids, and tretinoin, and these compounds have soothed skin since ancient days. We add a dash of organic Lavender Essential Oil to stabilize the precious oil and add to its regenerative power.
Mastic Essential Oil
Mastic Essential Oil is revered since biblical times as a skin primer, and now we know why. Researchers have newly discovered that Mastic has a tretinoin preserving superpower.
The tretinoin that naturally exists in our cells degrades in the presence of an enzyme (CYP26A1 to be exact), that also occurs in the skin. Mastic contains plant compounds that inhibit that enzyme from degrading endogenous tretinoin, thus boosting levels in the skin. Mastic Essential Oil, a charismatic liquid resin, super smoothes and silkifies the skin while softening the appearance of scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, lines, and spots.
A Simple Wild Rose Retinol Remedy
Wild Rosehips Carrier Oil and Mastic Essential Oil sate two of the three bio-pathways that provide tretinoin to the skin. When these two worlds collide in a beautiful expression of rosy renewal, skin is revived and comes alive!
It is super simple to make your own skin-smoothing, anti-acne skin care oil. Combine Wild Rosehips Carrier Oil and Mastic Essential Oil and shake gently before using. A little dab will quench the skin. Unlike synthetic retinol/tretinoin products that make the skin sensitive to the sun and may cause irritation and peeling, these botanical beauties are non-sensitizing and non-irritating. We recommend a bedtime application to freshly cleansed skin with Best Skin Ever to give the oils all night to work their magic (you can spa it up and soak it in with the Silicone Face Mask too). Allow 2-3 months to see improvement.
