Phyto Oils and the Skin
There has been much talk about Plant Oils or products known as Phyto Oils and their benefits to the skin. They help substitute our skin’s natural lipids without causing a greasy shine. They also give the skin an appearance of being dewy with a glow, creating a youthful looking skin. There are specific plant based ingredients that shield against the stresses of the environment, lock in moisture and smooth visible lines. Since Dermalogica has come out with the new Phyto Replenish Oil, I’d like to share with you the active ingredients, and the role these ingredients play in giving you a healthy looking skin.
Derived from a small flowering tree in Korea and Japan. It is often called “rose of the winter.” This antioxidant oil stimulates collagen and strengthens the skin’s barrier function resulting in wrinkle reducing benefits.
Native to the South Pacific Islands this phyto active oil is a potent antioxidant. It inhibits the breakdown of lipid rich cell membranes that occur from free radicals. This means your skin’s visual aging process will slow down with the use of this ingredient.
Chia Seed Oil
This ingredient helps to hydrate the surface of the skin, soothing dry itchy skin, while it delivers concentrated fatty acids.
Orchid Flower Extract
While it is locking in moisture and balancing the skin’s NMF or Natural Moisturizing Factor, it is also repairing and protecting the skin.
Has anti-irritant properties while providing anti-oxidant and hydrating qualities.
Sunflower Seed Oil
Very high in Vitamin E and is key to preserving the skin’s protective barrier function. It is excellent at defending against free radical damage.
Rice Bran Oil
Known to brighten and help protect against the UV Rays. This ingredient is rich in Vitamin B and E.
So as you can see there are many benefits to using plant oils on the skin. I am excited to carry this new product from Dermalogica “Phyto Replenish Oil. ” Gone and passé are the days of the skin looking so “matte” that any fine line or wrinkle suddenly appears on the face.
Please come by the skin care salon for a free sample, and see how you too can have dewy, and healthy looking skin in a very short time using Phyto Oils.
